Trump says it’s OK for Pompeo to have staff wash dishes if his wife isn’t there

Trump said Monday that it’s okay for a government employee to wash Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s dishes if his wife or son was not there to do so. ’...I’d rather have him on the phone with some world leader than have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn’t there or his kids aren’t there.’Trump made the remarks while answering questions about the firing of State Department IG Steve Linick.

Speaks like someone who always had "staff" to do the chores.

Right, if Pompeo is on a call with North Korea he should definitely put the country at risk to walk his dog and ignore peace negotiations.

Thought for sure one of the sources for this had to be The Onion. Although the ones that 'report' it are also funny, just not intentionally...

If he said “wife or son”, the title should definitely not be only wife. That connotes far more misogyny than the actual quote.

I mean I get it but in what way would washing dishes be so high priority that you would miss an important meeting with an Ambassador? How many dishes are we talking here?! Couldnt he just do his own dishes when hes not in a meeting or on the phone? The dog thing makes more sense as theres a time constraint involved.

It's not just about "washing dishes" it's about having federal employees doing domestic chores for him while on duty and being paid for that work with taxpayers money. If he needs a maid or a dog walker then he needs to spend his own money to hire them.
