Why Is Donald Trump Cool With The $24 Million Refrigerators For ‘Air Force One’?

Yes, I have read some of the justifications for this eyebrow-raising, inordinately high price for “chillers” — aka refrigerators. Despite all the claims re. customization, it still seems rather high. We are not talking anything high-tech or suffused with bleeding edge electronics. Just plain, industrial strength, industrial size fridges. A commercial-grade freezer for a supermarket is around $3,000. So that is one heck of a price hike.

I think there is something fishy.

Real ironic that just a year ago Donald Trump was calling for the cancellation of the new generation of Air Force Ones — citing excessive costs. See below, IF you cannot remember.

As with everything to do with the Trump, bar his hair, it just does not make much sense.

I Had No Idea That They Delivered Large Refrigerator/Freezers Using Just Shoulder Harnesses.

This was the Samsung, from Best Buy, we had delivered — to replace a 13 month old GE. Click to ENLARGE. 289 pounds.



I can’t honestly remember the last time I saw a refrigerator being delivered. Can’t even remember the last time I bought one or have one that needed replacing. All the many houses I have bought over the years came with appliances.

Ditto for this current house which we bought 10 years and 1 month ago.

Yes, 10 years and 1 month ago — and last week the GE Fridge/Freezer decided that it was time for its planned obsolescence. I have since discovered that the lifespan of a ‘modern’ fridge is 8 – 10 years, whereas older ones would last 30 years or more. That would explain why I can’t remember ever buying a new fridge.

I wondered how they were going to take out the old GE (for a $15 fee) and bring in the new 289 pound Samsung.

I had visions of dollies and ramps such that those used by movers.

When I didn’t see a dolly I actually JOKED without ever realizing how close I would be by saying: “what are you going to do, throw it on your back and carry it in?” He replied: “yep, pretty much”.

And he wasn’t joking.

Never seen anything like this. Damn impressive.

But I am NOT sure whether it is safe, wise or advisable.

We also learned that they get no special training as such about avoiding back injury and other damage.

I also learned that they might do 6 such deliveries a day.

Wow.

Yes, definitely quicker and easier than using a dolly, BUT I can see the potential for disaster.

I am surprised that this is permitted. They are taking quite the risk.
