Obozo, the Congenital Liar

Frankly, I don't much care what White House staffers are paid.

But it's an issue now because TOTUS was turned off, or something.

....people who work in the White House, they’ve had their pay frozen since I came in, our high-wage folks. So, they haven’t had a raise in two and a half years, and that’s appropriate because a lot of ordinary folks out there haven’t either. In fact, they’ve had their pay cut in some cases.” --President Incompetence

Of the 270 White House staffers who have been there for more than a year, 146—or 54%—received raises. The average salary increase was 8%. If you look at only staffers who got raises, the average increase was twice that. --Gawker

Who you gonna believe? PixieDustUnicorn, or your lyin' eyes?

"Overall, it should be noted, the White House’s salary budget contracted slightly, from $38.8 million to $37.1 million. The average salary also dropped from $82,721, or 65% above the median household income, to $81,765 — or 65% above the median household income."

You're obsessed with the sideshow despite your protestations to the contrary.
