In case you’re wondering how emboldened the so-called “elites,” as in federal government employees have gotten so far, wonder no further.
As they have become incredibly elitist, all on the taxpayers’ dime.
Apparently, FEMA officials, who have been remarkably slow to respond to the worst wildfire in modern American history, are holed up in pretentious Wailea resorts that run at least $1,000 per night.
Per an exclusive report from the Daily Mail, multiple FEMA officials are shamelessly staying at hotels such as the Fairmont, Four Seasons, and other astronomically expensive hotels, whose going rates surpass the annualGDP per capita of the world’s poorest nations.
For reference, overpaid Hollywood celebrities and other self-important types tend to gravitate towards these locales, though, to be “fair,” these individuals either pay for themselves or have private companies pay for them.
However, the feds, being the feds, aren’t just satisfied with lodging appropriate for veritable royalty: They want taxpayer-funded lodging.
“Bungling U.S. government bureaucrats dispatched to the Maui disaster zone are shacked up in $1,000-a-night luxury hotels on the Hawaiian island, DailyMail.com can reveal …
Officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have been slammed by locals over their slow response to the devastating wildfires that have claimed at least 114 lives and left thousands of people homeless after their houses were scorched to the ground …
But that has not stopped the under-fire agency from splashing taxpayer cash to put up more than 1,000 of its personnel at four bank-breaking resorts in Wailea after the deadliest wildfire in the U.S. for more than a century that caused an estimated $5billion in damage,” the Daily Mail reported.
Well, how about that.
It’s bad enough when Hunter and the Secret Service shack up in housing in California worth tens of thousands of dollars per month, particularly when Hunter and his latest gold digger decide to skip out on an $80,000 bill while simultaneously trashing the place.
However, FEMA nitwits apparently feel entitled to having just as much money hurled at their own lodging.
Even worse, the lodging is located at least 45 minutes away from the wildfire devastation, conveniently located in the princely golf communities of Wailea.
Which means FEMA officials, when they bother to go to “work,” are guzzling who knows how much gas going back and forth … gas desperately needed by the locals.
How “green” and “equitable.”
Perhaps most grotesquely of all, FEMA issued a typically insincere statement, which literally no one but an utter lemming would swallow.
“In the immediate aftermath of the tragic Maui wildfires, FEMA surged personnel, including hundreds of search and rescue teams, to provide relief to the survivors and support to the state and local governments as quickly as possible …
To complete that mission, FEMA selects hotels where all responders can be centrally located to ensure the most effective response possible. Due to the lack of available lodging, FEMA negotiated government rates, at the lowest possible cost, for staff temporarily staying in the available hotels,” FEMA sniffed.
Tellingly, the agency declined to comment on the exact numbers underlying “negotiated government rates.”
And as far as “centrally located” is concerned? Hardly!
“Centrally located” to the most pretentious, expensive restaurants on the island, certainly.
“Centrally located” with regards to people actually suffering the most from the wildfire devastation? Not exactly.
As if Biden’s most recent, 5-hour appearance in Maui wasn’t insulting enough.
Not only did the Narcissist in Chief ramble on about his kitchen fire, in which he apparently almost lost his ’67 Corvette, but he had the gall to crack jokes amid the devastation.
As if “almost” losing the same Corvette beside which he likes to store classified documents is remotely comparable to the loss faced by Maui residents.
Though perhaps the biggest joke was handing out $700 per Maui resident while FEMA officials stay in hotels that cost more than $700 a night.
Never mind the $1,700 per capita Biden has hurled into Ukraine to date, most of which has gone to the 0.001 percent of the Ukrainian population.
As in Zelenskyy and Co., who are all too eager to do Biden’s bidding, provided they receive utterly endless handouts from American taxpayers.
Needless to say, Biden’s joke of a response to Maui, coupled with shameless FEMA luxury lodging, should enrage anyone who really cares about “equity” … but just like the so-called “Green Deal,” “equity” is just another useless word to justify utterly senseless, wholly anti-American policies.
