President Profligate


The Rabid Right howled like stuck swine every time President Obama went golfing, but they are expectedly silent when the president with a fake "R" after his name does the same and much, much more. Not a word. And not a word from them about Lord Dampnut and his lovely Third Wife's church attendance. The Rabid Right were very much interested in President Obama and his family's church-going habits. Preznit Trump's?  Not at all. You see, he has a fake "R" after his name to match his fake devotion to their Savior. 

"Conservapedia" devoted an entire page to President Obama's religion, but did not do so for Trump. When's the last time the Holier-Than-Thou Religious Right saw Trumpie and his family attend church?

Now we come to Trump's profligate spending of American taxpayers' money for his golfing weekends and for keeping his Third Wife and son in Trump Tower:

Donald Trump's travel expenses in 10 weeks cost US taxpayers as much as Barack Obama spent in two years

US President has spent seven weekends at Mar-a-Lago since taking office 10 weeks ago


President Trump almost matched this figure in his first month - spending $10 million on three golfing holidays. The cost of travel and security for the entire Trump family is likely to be much higher, as the First Lady Melania and Mr Trump’s youngest son, Barron, are remaining in New York until at least September. 

 The New York Police Department has confirmed that it costs between $127,000 and $146,000 a day “to protect the First Lady and her son while they reside in Trump Tower". After he hosts Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago this weekend, Mr Trump will have averaged $2.4 million tax dollars a week on his Florida trips. If he keeps going at this pace, he will have outspent Mr Obama’s $97 million figure in just ten months. Critics have pointed out that if the President cut back on these visits, he could fund the social security and arts programmes that he is planning to slash.

Maybe if Lord Dampnut dropped a few bombs on an empty airfield in Syria, the American people won't notice any of this?


"...once the Chinese President left our country, the Chinese issued a statement that states their feelings on our bombing Syria. The Chinese State news agency called the strike, 'The act of a weakened politician who needed to flex his muscles.'"

In addition, that same news agency provided the analysis that #45 engaged in the strike so as to divert attention off of him specifically with regards to the Russian investigation." --Mark Bear

Not one word from Trump about the slaughter of Coptic Christians in Egypt! Doesn't he care about that?????

Jerry Critter said...

Trump's only concern about the slaughter of Coptic Christians is how to make money off of it.

As President Trump and his admin say the needless murder of children by gassing was horrible, it seems as if the needless murder of children in Syria and Yemen by regular bombing will continue unabated.

Also of course, the needless dying of children in South Sudan from starvation does not warrant any action from our Pres.

And you'll hear nothing from the typical right wing folks who banged on Pres Obama daily for his golfing, non White House expenses, and more. But at least we're "leading" now.

What a joke...

What would Americans expect from the GOP? A rabble of wild-eyed, foaming at the mouth loonies.
How else to describe the fools who support an asshole like Trump? Were the laughing stock of the world. No one respects us unless we drop bombs. The m;odern GOP: ASSHOLES VOTING FOR THE WORLD'S BIGGEST ASSHOLE.
