Who pays for a family dinner? You or the government?

President-elect Donald Trump gave the press the slip on Tuesday night so he could sneak out and enjoy some grub with his family at the 21 Club in Midtown.

The billionaire was spotted inside the upscale steakhouse at around 7:30 p.m. — just over an hour after his spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, told pool reporters he was bedding down for the night.

“I wasn’t aware of this movement,” she later explained, adding that she would never purposely “leave the press in the dark.”

No, of course not. And Donald would always tweet the truth. Donald would never mislead anyone. Yeah right.

The president-elect spent about two hours dining with family at the 21 Club, a restaurant a few blocks from his Trump Tower residence.

What I want to know is whether the bill for the family dinner was paid by Trump or the US Government. If paid by Trump is he going to add the bill as a business expense or will one of his family claim the dinner as a tax break?

Also, did the Secret Service (not so secret when your image is plastered all over social media while the Trumps eat), get to eat at Club 21 too or did they have to wait until they got back to Trump Castle.

Geez, I believe the Donald said something about cleaning or emptying the swamp. It appears he is just wallowing in it like another pig at the trough.
