    Trying to make news out of something that isn’t newsworthy. Donald Trump Jr. requires more security than Melissa Francis, thanks to the liberal overreaction to his speech. His security detail won’t work for free. So of course his speech will have great expenses than hers. His speech may also be at AT&T Stadium for greater security, and AT&T costs more than a hotel ballroom. You want speakers to cost less? Stop throwing temper tantrums and threatening violence whenever a conservative speaker is invited to UNT or an event with a direct UNT connection. Then the conservative speakers won’t need extra security. Simple logic.
