There I was online. Surfing the news. When up pops before me a headline that says “TRUMP WILL DECLINE SALARY IF ELECTED!”
Well, I think that is a perfectly awesome thing to do and I believe that headline. Though I’m thinking it might not be true only because the story had one paragraph and the website it was on was www.MakingMoneyFromHitCounts.com or something like that.
However, that is not what this article is about. Instead it got me to thinking about just how the President gets his weekly paycheck. Now think about it.
I’m serious about this question. We’re always being told how much they make and that they make it for life which, by the way, is a sweet deal.
But does anybody tell us who it is that comes around with a stack of envelopes on Friday morning (to make sure they show up for work on Friday and don’t take a long weekend) and pass those window envelopes out to the Secretary of State, the Vice President, various advisers, the Prez, and such as that? I don’t think so.
And, of course the big question is: Does the Prez immediately go to the bank’s drive through with his filled out deposit slip, and pull out his driver’s license to prove he has a right to make a deposit at that bank?
Does he get out enough cash from that deposit to take to his First Lady for the weekly grocery shopping?
You see what I mean? No information about this whatsoever.
You would think Time or People, hell even the National Enquirer would have covered this already. Where’s a real journalist when you need one?
