Melania Trump appears to be trying to carry out revenge at all costs against anyone who may be exposing her wasteful expending. In a bizarre move earlier this week, the “first lady” very publicly forced Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel out of her job, thinking that it was Ricardel who outed her for having wastefully booked a nearly hundred thousand dollar hotel stay and not even stayed in it. The stunning development was the culmination of ongoing clashes between the two during their shared trip to Africa.
Now, Melania has a whole new scandal. It turns out, the Africa debacle wasn’t the only time in which Melania Trump ran up a massive hotel bill for no justifiable reason.
According to a new report by Quartz Magazine, Melania blew a whopping $174,000 on hotel bills when she visited Toronto, despite – get this – not even staying the night.
Yup, Melania Trump ran up a six-figure hotel bill for a one-day trip to Toronto, according to federal spending records cited in the report.
Just let that sink in for a moment. If she’s done this twice, then she’s probably made a consistent habit out of it, raising the question of just how many millions of taxpayer dollars she may have blown on her lavish international travel.
The kicker here is, however, that worse than being wasteful, Melania appears to be trying to carry out revenge at all costs against anyone who may be exposing her for it. In publicly getting Ricardel ousted from a national security position, Melania Trump knowingly threw away whatever little might have been left of her reputation. If anyone had been unsure if Melania was a victim or a co-conspirator in Donald Trump’s tyranny, this erased any real doubt.
