Federal docs outlining the government’s expenses for this year’s tree lighting outside the White House show the total tab will come to $128,424.
That includes $11,452 on the sound system, another $11,972 on ballistic glass to protect the Prez and fam … and $105,000 for general event management services.
The glass will probably look something like this one from George W. Bush‘s 2007 lighting.
BTW, the expenses don’t include the 40-50 foot tall evergreen, which is usually donated, and is different from the 20-footer Melania and Barron got last week to go inside the White House.
We know you’re dying to know — the expenses for Obama’s last tree lighting ran $101,421 and did NOT include a new bulletproof glass purchase.
