    INTER SEC ZINKE makes staffer wave dept'l flag upon his arrival ea. day!!

    And this is done WHY? Can't he just have it run up the flag pole with the US flag each day? Aren't REPUBLICANS the ones that scream GOVERNMENT WASTE?

    Isn't this the freak that rode in on his first day on Capitol Hill on a HORSE screwing up traffic in DC?? Just how many batshit people are there in this administration?

    Interior Sec requires staffer to fly a special flag when he enters HQ — and military officials are flummoxed

    DON'T MISS STORIES. FOLLOW RAW STORY!

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has come under fire for spending nearly as much as former Secretary Tom Price on private airline flights, but now it appears he also has special mandates for the buildings he’s in.

    The Washington Post reported Thursday that Zinke unearthed a military ritual hoisting special secretarial flags on whatever buildings he happens to be in. Each time Zinke is scheduled to enter a building, a security staffer takes an elevator to the top floor and climbs to the roof where his special flag is raised. When he is not in the building, the security staffer must, once again, climb the steps to the top and take the flag down.

    The flag, is a royal blue with a seal that features a bison and seven stars on it. It’s remarkably similar to the flag for Montana’s Chippewa Tribe Zinke was seen holding as a U.S. Representative.

    Yep, it was he that rode his horse into town in hat, cowboy outfit and all. Wonder if his employees had to be waiting there when he arrived with the flag?

    It's quite bizarre, the level of entitlement here. Is it some kind of delusion of grandeur?

    Seriously?

    Couldn't you think of anything bad Obama did?

    You have to reach all the way to England to deflect for the administration this time?

    You could look at Bill Clinton holding up traffic at LAX to sit on the runway and get a haircut.

    Give us a break! This is batshit crazy stuff and/or flagrant entitlement stuff. Your flailing attempts to deflect or defend are pathetic. And the poster is quite right, this is 'royal entitlement' bullshit--with a cowboy hat instead of a crown.

    Yeah, thanks for reminding me.

    Obama added nearly $10 Trillion to the national debt.

    Only took him 8 years, too!

    In a way, you make my point. He thinks he's a royal and deserves royal treatment in a country that rejected Monarchy.
