The Washington Post’s Roomba-like search for the next Watergate-ish bombshell continues. Will this report about Trump family “gouging” do the trick?
For Trump family, even Russia probe was a chance to gouge taxpayers:
When Don Jr. testified as part of Russia probe in 2017, he stayed at Trump hotel in DC. His Secret Service detail paid $3,300 to stay with him.https://t.co/K4XUHicAUY

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, along with Richard Grenell and others, don’t seem to believe that’s the big scoop the Post wants everybody to think it is:
WHAT A MORON. This alleged “reporter” is apparently unaware that Secret Service detail leaders and shift agents stay where the protectee stays, whenever possible. But that would require a basic knowledge of how the USSS works, and this dunce doesn’t have it. 🤦🏼♂️🤦🏼♂️🤦🏼♂️👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 https://t.co/e9jK1sO6BQ

How can a reporter for intel issues not know that Secret Service agents are required for the President’s children? https://t.co/XalVnoNAss

Well yeah, it's required as he is the Presidents son.

But that angle was probably a big sell with the anti-Trump Resistance.
That’s because Democrats are insane and unhinged, and the President’s family has to be protected from them. https://t.co/uHS5TACC5C

I don’t seem to remember the same outrage at Obama

Heck, when Joe Biden was VP the Secret Service paid rent to the Bidens to stay in a cottage on their Wilmington property, but there didn’t seem to be as much media talk about “gouging” over that story.
