Donald Trump Really Really Wants You to See His New (Actually It’s Quite Old) Boeing 757 – Funny Video

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Well, somebody’s got to work for Donald Trump, I s’pose. Here’s lovely Amanda Miller showing off Donald Trump’s latest wing bling.

For some reason, this not-so-fresh video clip shows up on YouTube when searching for the term San Francisco  - I don’t know why.

Anywho, for DJT to call this nearly quarter century old ride “quiet” is a laugh riot. Yes Donald, it’s quiet compared with your former half-century-plus-old Boeing 727, but that’s about the best thing you can say about the matter.

Trumpy didn’t think his old airplane was heavy enough, so he had plenty of gold added inside. Is that a good thing?

And why such a small “home theatre” screen?

And Amanda, how much extra do you get paid over what you’d get working for an actual human being? Something to think about.

And Donald, what about Trump Ocean Resort Baja Mexico?

The peanut gallery:

what song is that?

That chick looks so stiff and uncomfortable…. Fail

OMG I want to bang that girl so bad it hurts!!!! owie!!!

mafia guy airplane

dang i hate gold but I REALLY wanna go on there if i wanna go to England!

An Aging Boeing 757-300 High Above San Francisco – This is Why They Call It The Flying Pencil

‘Cause it’s too long.

And that made it unpopular with passengers.

And that meant it died an early death.

Good-bye, Boeing 757. Thanks for showing us how narrow is too narrow and how long is too long…

Mythbusters! Adam Savage Needs to Borrow a Large Aircraft in the Bay Area for a Few Days – Won’t You Help Him?

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Adam Savage would like to borrow your airplane for a few days:

“ATTENTION! Anyone have a 200+ seat plane we can use (no flying) for 2-3 days in the Bay Area? We won’t blow it up. WRITE mb@beyond.com.au”

See? They won’t blow it up.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking, “What about the Getty Jet?”

Via All Valley Blogs 

But I think that old gas-guzzling Boeing 727* is too small.

But what about the big Google Jets? Either the 757 or wide-body 767 should work.

Now, what are the Mythbusters up to?

*There’s nothing wrong with The Jetty per se, it’s just that it’s old school so your chances of dying on it are one or two orders of magnitude greater that what they’d be on the JetBlue or something. And it’s not possible to upgrade all its low-bypass engines to a more modern design. Therefore it’s expensive to operate compared to jets that weren’t designed half a century ago.

“Judicial Watch” Once Again, Gets Upset Over Nancy Pelosi’s Use of “Air Force 3″ – FOIA Request, Once Again, Reveals Nothing

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

First off, get up-to-speed on the whole House Speaker Nancy Pelosi military jet issue right here at Snopes.

Now, take a look at what Judicial Watch has “uncovered” in their release from this morning, below.

Basically, it says that Nancy travels around a lot under the rules set up under George W. Bush. Does this surprise you? Of course she’s required to fly on military aircraft in this post-9/11 world, so she flies on military a/c. Does this surprise you? And when she flew with a congressional delegation to Iraq, somebody on the plane drank, wait for it, beer! Does this surprise you? Would you like to know which brand? Corona! Does this surprise you? Now, did it come with a lime wedge? Natch! How could it not? But sadly, the report contains no confirmation regarding this important issue…

The crappy C20B military jet that Nancy Pelosi sometimes uses, with noisy, archaic low-bypass engines that would look comfortable hanging off a plane from the 1950′s. This thing is the K-Car of private jets. It’s older than you – it’s straight out of the 1970′s:

(Personally, I’d rather fly coach on JetBlue or the Virgin America. And that way I could land in the bay area at SFO or OAK instead of freaking Solano County, East of the East Bay)

Anyway, maybe I’m missing something so check my work by reading along right here. This report is just a nothing burger with a side-order of nada:

Judicial Watch Uncovers New Documents Detailing Pelosi’s Use of Air Force Aircraft

Records Indicate Pelosi Used Air Force Aircraft for 85  Trips Covering 206,264 Miles from March 2009 through June  2010

Pelosi’s Family Members Included on at least Two  Flights

WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 / –Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes  government corruption, announced today that it has obtained new documents from  the United States Air Force detailing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s repeated use  of United States Air Force aircraft.   According to the documents, obtained by Judicial Watch through the  Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Pelosi used Air Force aircraft on 85 flights  from March 2009 through June 2010.   Members of Pelosi’s family were guests on at least two  flights.

Among  the highlights from the documents, obtained pursuant to a FOIA request filed on  January  25, 2009:

   –  Pelosi used the Air Force aircraft for a total of 85 trips, covering
       206,264 miles,  from March  2, 2009 through June 7, 2010.  Pelosi, her
       guests and Air Force  personnel logged a total of 428.6 hours on these
       flights.
   –  Members  of Pelosi’s family were guests on at least two flights.  On
       June  20, 2009,  Speaker Pelosi’s daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons
       joined a flight from  Andrews Air Force Base to San Francisco
       International Air Port.  That flight included $143 in on-flight
       expenses for food and other items.   On July  2, 2010,  Pelosi took her
       grandson on a flight from Andrews Air Force Base to Travis Air  Force
       Base in Fairfield,  California,  which is northeast of San  Francisco.

According to previous documents uncovered by Judicial  Watch, Speaker’s military travel cost the United States Air Force $2,100,744.59  over a two-year period –  $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses,  including food and alcohol.  For  example, purchases for one Pelosi-led congressional delegation traveling from  Washington, DC, through Tel Aviv, Israel to Baghdad, Iraq May 15-20, 2008  included:  Johnny Walker Red scotch,  Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Creme, Maker’s Mark whiskey,  Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewar’s  scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several  bottles of wine.

On it goes, after the jump.
