And park them at Mar-a-loco ... and tell Drumpf he can shove his fukcing RENTAL FEES up his friggin' ASS?

Furthermore, why can't they tell him YOU WILL PROVIDE US A SPACE at Trump Tower, and we ARE NOT FUCKING PAYING YOU, otherwise, you're on your OWN, fuckface?

What the FUCK IS THIS BULLSHIT, MAN!?!

If this was Obama or Clinton, *personally profiting* directly off their taxpayer funded SS detail, I don't care if it was for 5 FUCKING CENTS ... the GOP and Fox and Rush and every single jackoff RW asshole with access to a mic would be screaming bloody murder, the GOP would be holding hearings, and the MSM would be breathlessly covering the ZOMG SCANDAL!!!11! with 24/7 segments.

This is UNBELIEVABLE.

When the SS asked Trump if they could buy them, he told them no and they had to rent them so he could make money.

This is a little thing in the context of all the truly horrible things 45 and company are doing, but it burns my ass pretty good.

otherwise, you're on your OWN,

The Secret Service can't abandon a protectee, because it is NOT just about them.

Any assassination attempt or completion would affect the entire federal political system, whether it were tRump or one of his family. Trump's ratings would go up in sympathy, especially if he were able to exploit it to appear tough or strong or brave.
