Special pay for a special assistant


CNBC reports:

The Trump administration also employs the son of Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney. The White House pays him nearly six figures to serve as a sports liaison. According to government documents, Giuliani’s son, Andrew H. Giuliani, makes $95,000 per year working for the White House. His official title is “Special Assistant to the President and Associate Director of the Office of Public Liaison.”

Joe Biden should have told Hunter Biden he couldn’t take that 50k per month job with Burisma because the only reason he was offered it was the fact that Joe was Vice President.

By the same token, and several other tokens in addition, Rudy former prosecutor Giuliani should not be letting his son profit from his (Rudy’s) close and corrupt relationship with Trump.

To put it mildly.

The 31-year-old Giuliani has served in the Office of Public Liaison, which acts as “the primary line of communication between the White House and the public,” since March 2017.

Three years ago, so he was 28 when he got the gig. Not bad pay for a kid.

He made $77,000 serving as an associate director in 2017, and got a raise in 2018 to $90,700 though his title didn’t change. In the two years he has been employed by the White House, his pay has increased by $18,000.

I’m sure he deserves every penny of it. I’m sure he works his ass off as a…a what now? A sports liaison? Meaning he watches sports on tv and then tells Trump what he saw? Sure that’s worth 95k a year. All those dinners at Trump’s hotel add up.

The son of the former New York mayor was a college golfer. He joined the Duke University golf team in 2006 but was cut from the team in 2008 after he allegedly threw an apple at a teammate and threw and broke a golf club in a parking lot. The then-college student sued the university but the case was dismissed in 2010.

So no wonder he got a White House job! He’s a natural!

Rudy Giuliani told The Atlantic that hiring Andrew “wasn’t the usual ‘hire my kid’ situation.” “He’s known the president since he was a baby,” he told The Atlantic. “Now, did he know him in the first place because he was the mayor’s son? Sure, but they also had a relationship independent of me.”

And…that’s different from the usual ‘hire my kid’ situation how, exactly?

“He doesn’t really try to be involved in anything,” an anonymous former senior White House official told The Atlantic. “He’s just having a nice time.”

Of course he is, on 95k a year and the right to throw apples at anybody he wants to except Trump.
