Do you approve of Trump’s spin doctor, Kellyanne Conway, receiving her pay from your tax dollars? Trump created a formerly non-existent position for her, and she is one of the 22 highest paid staffers in the White House. These 22 men and women receive $179,700 each year, for a total of just under $4,000,000 of taxpayer money.
Other names you might recognize who are members of the ‘elite 22,’ are Steve Bannon, Omarosa Manigault, Reince Priebus, and Sean Spicer.
Just stop and think about this for a few minutes. Conway and Spicer are paid nearly $180,000 a year to lie to the American people. They serve no other function in our nation’s government. You are giving your money to someone who is attempting to deceive you and protect the worst president in American history. We, the American people, should be outraged.
You can read the other 17 names and their questionable titles on the attached link. I’m sure that you will ask ‘why’ as you read the list.
Trump has wasted millions of taxpayer dollars in just over five months, but his “healthcare” plan and proposed budget does not allow taxpayer dollars to fully fund agencies which help low-income and impoverished Americans including Medicaid and Planned Parenthood.
There is no justification for paying Kellyanne Conway such an outrageous sum of money. She is not serving the American people. She is serving herself and her immoral boss.
An interesting side note; Conway reportedly despises Trump, and is therefore a hypocrite in addition to being a professional liar. After an appearance on “Morning Joe,” where she lied over and over again for Trump, as she was leaving the set, Conway was overheard talking to an assistant, saying; “I need a shower.”
As my wife says: “Our country is messed up.”
Please re-post; thank you.
