Tom Price has left the building, ladies and gentlemen.
President Donald Trump’s health and human services secretary quit Friday in a four-paragraph resignation letter amid staunch criticism of his use of taxpayer-funded private jets, and Hollywood is laughably thrilled.
The announcement came in the middle of Trump’s investigation of Price’s use of charter flights for work-related trips, which have ended up costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Needless to say, the “price is not right” jokes came flooding in on Twitter.
Price is the latest in a string of exits from Trump’s administration which has included the national security adviser, press secretary, communications director, chief strategist, acting attorney general and FBI director.

Finally draining the swamp(kinda). Also, just cause you resigned Tommy, doesn’t mean you don’t still owe us tax payers that money. https://t.co/W6z1vYTc7T
