This is from 2009! Just 1 of thousands of horrible things going on and I seriously can’t keep up with it.
A U.S. president’s salary is about 400k a year, so why would he/she spend 65k on some lunch party? That is 65k of our money, not his!
Taken from: http://www.trump-conservative.com/news/wikileaks-obama-spends-65k-of-taypayer-money-on-hotdogs-flown-in-from-chicago/
For anyone who is already familiar with the massive amount of government waste that goes on this shouldn’t come as a surprise, but considering hotdogs are pretty much the cheapest social gathering food you can buy, 65k sounds absurdly high.
This email was released by Wikileaks as part of their Global Intelligence Files leak, which includes over 5 million emails from the Texas headquarters of global intelligence company Stratfor. The company describes itself as a “geopolitical intelligence platform”, but Wikileaks has stated that:
They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal’s Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor’s web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.
In other words, yet another cog in the machine of money laundering, political favors and corporate corruption.
The Wikileaks email below reveals the level of waste taking place under Barack Obama for just a single event titled “Chicago Hot Dog Friday”:

I think Obama spent about $65,000 of the tax-payers money flying in
pizza/dogs from Chicago for a private party at the White House not long
ago, assume we are using the same channels?

Besides the blatant statement of Obama spending $65,000 of taxpayer money on flying in hotdogs/pizza from Chicago for a private party at the White House, the other thing that should jump out to you is the sentence, “If we get the same “waitresses,” I’m all for it!!!” by Aaric S. Eisenstein, senior vice president of Stratfor.
Why is the word waitresses in quotes? Taken at face value, it would appear Aaric is making a subtle hint towards the waitresses for the last event being attractive, and wanting to get the same ones for this hot dog event. Although if that’s the case, why the quotation marks? Is the term “waitresses” code for something more unsavory taking place at these elite private parties?
If you want to go deeper down the rabbit hole of corruption that’s been revealed by the Podesta emails, it also appears these people have an unnatural fixation on hot dogs.
From the Wikileaks Podesta emails:

Subject: man, I miss you
The next three months are going to be rougher internally than in Beijing. Between 7th and 1600, no fun. Hope you’re doing ok. I’m dreaming about your hotdog stand in Hawaii…
Who dreams of a hot dog stand in Hawaii and why does this person refer to it at “your hotdog stand”, meaning it belongs to John Podesta. Does Podesta own some sort of secret exclusive hot dog stand on one of the Hawaii islands that us common folk are unaware of?
Back to the issues of government spending and waste under the corrupt administration.
Political pundits and the media often criticize Donald Trump, claiming that there’s no way he would be able to fund his border wall and other revitalizing projects, but not spending $65,000 of the taxpayers money on hotdogs flown in from Chicago would seen like a good place to start.
Donald Trump could likely fund his entire presidency and reduce taxes by simply eliminating the massive amounts of waste taking place within our government.
