How in the world is this right?

Trump will host his brother’s funeral at the WH. So how much will cost the tax payers to cover this? Security, the logistics & others high enough, but knowing Trump? It will be a “HUGE” showcase!

1. Odds are it is a campaign rally disguised as a funeral.

2. I'm less upset about this private event than if he actually delivers his nom acceptance from WH

The latter has me spitting nails.

3. Why are our tax dollars being used for his brother's funeral?

Is there a part of the budget that covers funeral services for relatives of the POTUS?

5. If so, it would be the first time he's ever actually paid for anything.

6. He is so cheap...

when it comes to anyone but himself. I wonder where the brother will be buried, or is everyone required to bring a shovel?

7. It's unusual but not without precedent.

 

In 1890, President Benjamin Harrison utilized the East Room for funeral services for the wife and daughter of his Secretary of the Navy, Benjamin Tracy. The two women were killed in a fire.
And in 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt hosted a state funeral in the East Room for his longtime political adviser and close friend Louis Howe.
