According to a Daily Mail report, FEMA officials residing in Maui for disaster relief after the tragic fires are staying in luxury resorts with rates starting at $1,000 per night.

Locals criticized the government bureaucrats for their slow response in aiding the victims of the fires that devastated the island.

Despite the criticism, FEMA officials used taxpayer dollars to stay in opulent resorts in Wailea.

Tell me again why FEMA deserves to exist?

Daily Mail had the scoop:

But that has not stopped the under-fire agency from splashing taxpayer cash to put up more than 1,000 of its personnel at four bank-breaking resorts in Wailea after the deadliest wildfire in the U.S. for more than a century that caused an estimated $5billion in damage.

The beachside resorts are popular among the rich and famous and located about a 45-minute drive away from the fire-ravaged town of Lahaina.

FEMA teams have checked in at three five-star hotels, the Fairmont Kea Lani, Four Seasons, and the Grand Wailea Astoria where past guests include members of Hollywood’s elite.

Their rooms carry price tags that are well out of reach of most hard-working Americans.

The Fairmont Kea Lani, Hawaiian for ‘heavenly white’, boasts on its website about being the ‘only all-suite’ hotel in Hawaii that once welcomed ex-Bond star Pierce Brosnan and offers ‘gourmet dining’ to uber-wealthy guests.

The 780 rooms come with either one or two bedrooms, measuring at least 860 square feet, and have private balconies so that visitors can soak up the sunset views of what the hotel calls ‘an oceanside paradise.’

Meanwhile, the Four Seasons, another top resort that once hosted Kanye West, spans nearly 15 acres and has a white fountain pool, green trees, 600 square-feet rooms.

Greg Price reminded social media users that the federal government only gave local residents a one-time $700 payment after the disaster.

Perhaps this is another reason FEMA reportedly wants a total social media blackout from Maui.

“FEMA has turned the Hawaii tragedy into a vacation,” Jesse Watters of Fox News said.
