VA Chief Took in Wimbledon, River Cruise on European Work Trip; Wife’s Expenses Covered by Taxpayers

Jack Gillum, Alex Horton, Drew Harwell, and Lisa Rein – The Washington Post:

Nearly three days into a trip to Europe this past July, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin had attended a Wimbledon championship tennis match, toured Westminster Abbey and taken a cruise on the Thames.

The 10-day trip was not entirely a vacation. Shulkin was in Europe for meetings with Danish and British officials about veterans’ health issues.

Yet he and his wife spent about half their time sightseeing, including shopping and touring historic sites, according to an itinerary obtained by The Washington Post and confirmed by a U.S. official familiar with their activities.

Y’all ok with this? I happen to know a veteran or two, and not the four-years and out variety. One thing that uniformly pisses them off is the Veterans Administration. This guy was Mr. Trump’s pick to clean up that ill-performing agency.

So again, veterans, are y’all ok with this?
