Closing Thought–02Dec19

I remember the days of the 2016 campaign and the time of the run up when candidate Trump bitched about the number of times Obama had been playing golf…..let us not forget all those mindless Right wing bloggers that echied the sentiment on Obama’s golfing trips……but you know I have heard NOTHING out of these mental midgets about the news…..

President Donald Trump’s golf hobby has now cost Americans an estimated $115 million in travel and security expenses ― the equivalent of 287 years of the presidential salary he frequently boasts about not taking.

Of that amount, many hundreds of thousands ― perhaps millions ― of dollars have gone into his own cash registers, as Secret Service agents, White House staff and other administration officials stay and eat at his hotels and golf courses.

The exact amount cannot be determined because the White House refuses to reveal how many Trump aides have been staying at his properties when he visits them and will not turn over receipts for the charges incurred.

What a guy!  Trump donates his salary but spends millions more on his constant golfing with his buds….

Plus he had a virtual golf screen installed in the White House…..does he as president supposedly the busiest man on the planet need a golf game when he goes every other weekend to golf?

I say NO!  I say give him one weekend game per 3 months….anything over that then he pays and pays at the time of the game to avoid having to sue the bastard for unpaid bills…..which is his stock and trade.

But not to worry this to can be justified because others have played golf as well……so no need to comment on that….

  1. I have two very important qualifications to be president.I’ve played golf only once in my life some 50 years ago and I think it is stupid. The other one is that I have a real birth certificate from Staten Island, New York 1949.

  2. I have never complained about the time spent by any of our presidents playing golf. I think it is good for them to play. Same with vacations by presidents and time spent out of the White House.
    However, I agree those figures you quoted are pretty high.

  3. What needs to be done is for somebody in power to get laws passed so that the damned President — whether he be Republican, Democrat or whatever never gets any benefits at all … He has to absolutely pay for everything he does … all recreation, all parties, all travel, rent on the white house, gas for the motorcade, don’t give them a damned thing ever ….then see what kind of Government you get for your money. I think it would be a lot better to throw a lot of the lazy-assed welfare-dependent bums of this country off the welfare rolls and force them to work for a living … unless they are certifiably unable to do so … and then it would be a different question … and we definitely need to stop subsidizing illegals with free education, medicine, housing, stipends and all the other freebies they get. Trump is not the only president who has ever lived in a high style at taxpayer expense … and he won’t be the last.

    1. The high rollers in DC cost us more than the so-called welfare queens…..the Congress cost more than the aliens everyone is so fearful of….but it is okay for they are saying what some want to hear….it is silly….chuq
