Being raised by some about the price of protecting the first family lets discuss now Senior Contributor Maria Cardona, Karine Jean-Pierre the Senior Advisor at MoveOn.org and Senior Political Commentators Paris Dennard and Andre Bauer. Welcome back panel, Maria you just heard Tom Foreman lay it out, between the first lady living in New York, to weekends in Mar A Lago, the cost of protecting the first family could be epic.
But that has always been the responsibility of the secret service. So is there anything different now?
Well there is a couple of things different here, Don. First of all, hypocrisy which is nothing new when it comes to the Trump administration, he’s full of hypocrisy day in and day out, he not only lambasted President Obama every time he would go on trip saying that it’s taxpayer money, now shameful it is, that he doesn’t spend enough time at the White-House, that he’s golfing every weekend. And in 2015, he gave an interview to The Hill where he said if he became President he would rarely leave Washington – rarely leave the White House – now we see that that is absolutely not true. The second thing I think is a big issue especially for Trump and his family is the fact that he has four adult children that also need protection when they travel, that’s fine, like you said, that is something that happens, it is what it is, we have to protect the first family – all of it – including the adult children. But when the adult children are out on business trips all over making deals, closing deals, and making themselves rich, while taxpayers are paying for it? That is a completely different thing. I think…
Okay, okay. Whoa, let me bring the other panel in, panelist in because we have a short time, Andre, the Washington Post reports that the Secret Service hotel bill for Eric Trump’s trip to South America last month was nearly $100,000 both the President Trump’s grown children heading to a golf course heading to buy this weekend – any concern that you think the Trump family’s personal business and lifestyle is costing tax payers a lot of dough?
Well you know I’m a fiscal conservative, and so yes, when I heard just a minute ago in your story that 300 hundred people travel with the President to me no matter if its a Republic or Democrat that seems excessive to me. That somebody ought to look into ways to save money ya, I think the first family needs to be protected no matter who it is, and we could argue Bill Clinton bills the United States Government to have secret service on his property which seems a little bit crazy, it’s legal, and he’s the only person to ever do it, but you could go through all of ’em – the trips they took and maybe they shouldn’t of taken some of the trips, but at the end of the day we want the most powerful leader in the world protected but can we do it in a more prudent and responsible way, hopefully so and hopefully somebody within this administration will look at it and say – here’s where we can save some money because at the end of the day the taxpayers are footing a large bill.
Karine, you say this is hypocrisy?
I do, I think its complete hypocrisy. Like, Maria was saying he chastised President Obama for going on vacation, for golfing, and President Obama had less vacation, fewer vacation days than his predecessor, President George W. Bush. I think for me, the thing that bothers me the most about this is the profiting off the Presidency, Mar-a-Lago, you know, they doubled their initiation fee to $200,000 dollars and also, he never, he actually never let go of ownership of his businesses so his adult children are traveling making money for the organization – he’s profiting from.
I wanna – I want to bring in Paris, now, sorry. Could you guys — I want to get it all in before you all have to go. Paris what’s your – what do you think?
I think this is fake news. This is – this is not this is not a news story.
Come on, Paris.
I believe him.
What about it is fake? Paris? Are we going down this road again?
Yeah, we are! I haven’t interrupted any of you – Let me just tell you why. The President is not breaking any laws and he’s not doing anything
Okay, Paris hold on, let me ask you – no no no let me ask you – Imma let you finish. Do you actually know what the definition of Fake News is?
What we’re doing right now.
No. Okay then –

[Paris Dennard:] Source: L Y B I O . N E T
NO – I’m [..] story.
And you’re part of the – fake news is – hang on – let me explain to people out there watching, and you, what fake news is.
Fake news is when you put out a story to intentionally deceive someone and you know that it is it wrong. I don’t know of anybody that has put out a story in the – the mainstream media that I can think of right now to – that – intentionally deceive anyone. Now, people get things wrong, sources are sometimes empty, but no one that I know has put out anything to intentionally deceive someone.
This story that we’re doing right now is not to intentionally deceive anyone.
We are simply talking about the cost to keep a president safe-the Secret Service cost, and what are the pros and the cons, and as Andre said, if there are ways we can maybe work on that to make it fiscally better for the American people. There’s nothing fake about that.
Please stop it with that stupid talking point that it is a fake news story.
If you don’t want to participate in the news stories on this network, then don’t come on and participate, but don’t call them fake because you don’t agree with them. Go on.
