Trump: I Couldn’t Care Less About Golf And All My Weekend Trips Don’t Cost Much Anyway [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday defended his frequent weekend trips to his luxury properties, saying he does not care about golfing as much as people might think he does.

“I have a lot of property. So if I go to my clubs like in New Jersey, they’ll say, ‘Oh he is going to play golf.’ I am not going to play golf. I couldn’t care less about golf,” Trump said in an interview on Fox News.

“But I have a place there that costs almost nothing because its hundreds of acres and security and they don’t have to close up streets,” he added.

More from Talking Points Memo:

When Trump is not in New York City, the New York police department estimates that it costs $127,000 to $146,000 a day to protect Melania Trump and Barron Trump, according to Fox News. He acknowledged that these trips cause some people to view him as “lazy” and someone who takes frequent vacations and said he does not want people to have that perception of him.

“It would be much better if people would understand that I could go other places than I have,” Trump said. “But then they hit me for relaxing. And I don’t want to be known as a person that relaxes because I am working hard and I am working hard for the people and we’re doing a great job.”

      There are championship golf courses in suburban Maryland and suburban Virginia, within 50 miles of the White House–but I doubt that he’s up to championship play, and he wouldn’t make any money out of them.

  • TexasBoy

    I don’t remember Obama taking trips every weekend, he usually staying at the WH and worked. If you can’t stand the heat, Donnie..

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Trumpeteers who claim Obama took as much time off to golf should be smacked.

    Hey Donnie, you know where else they don’t have to close streets? The Whitehouse.

          They could probably remodel Camp David to Trump’s taste for the price of a single Mar-a-lago weekend.

          • thatotherjean

            Only if they promise to remove everything and burn it in a field after he’s out of office.

      • David Walker

        The former president used it. Until 45 can find some young women who’ll pee on him there (you know, to purge it from it’s touch with blackness), he ain’t going.

        Also, 45 knows he’d lose bigtime if he played the Eisenhower links.

  • Joe in PA

    because its hundreds of acres and security….

    So is he saying that the SS doesn’t provide security when he is at one of his 100+ acre place?

  • bkmn

    I bet he never will play one round of golf at Camp David, which would save taxpayers hundreds of thousands.

  • safari

    If the GOP ever bitch about vacations or morality again with a president, I will lose it.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Trump needs to become the one word rebuttal for any complaint by a GOPer screaming the sky is falling because a Dem First Lady is wearing sleeveless dresses or a Dem President is getting a slice of strange.

  • TexasBoy

    People complained because Obama spent an estimated $100 million for security during personal travel during his presidency. Donald has spend approximately 1/3 of that in just 100 days.

    • bkmn

      People didn’t complain, Repubelickins did.

      • Joe in PA

        Because they get their news from Fox (and probably Breitbart). SMH…I just saw a “discussion” somewhere…they are STILL talking about his world “vacations”. And you dare not bring up Michelle and her trips! Oy.

    • Schlukitz

      And 265 more to go! *face-palming myself*

  • He’s delusional.

    “But I have a place there that costs almost nothing because its hundreds of acres and security and they don’t have to close up streets,” he added.

    This is the exact opposite of the truth. It costs about $3m for every visit to Mar-a-Lago; not as much for his NJ golf course, but it ain’t nothing. Security costs are a nightmare, and as Joe pointed out in the clipping, it costs more to protect Trump Tower in NYC for a single day than most Americans earn in an entire year. And for a guy who “doesn’t care about golf” he sure as hell plays a lot of it.

    On top of this, New Jersey and West Palm Beach business owners are furious because due to street closures and closures of local airports and marinas, Donald Motherfucking Trump is driving them into bankruptcy.

    • bkmn

      I saw that WPB is considering making Mar-a-Lago a special tax district to cover the expense since Trump and his buds are not rushing to have the federal government pay the money they promised WPB would be coming.

      • JDS

        Yes. Unfortunately I don’t know if that will pass. I hope it does.

    • netxtown

      He MAKES money on his relax time – PAID by us!

  • octobercountry

    This is OUTRAGEOUS, that the taxpayers have to pay for his weekend trips—every trip to Florida costs the US $3 million a pop, right? And it’s costing $50 million a year to keep his wife and kid up in New York?

    This is disgusting. So much for the Republicans being the party of “fiscal responsibility.” And yes the GOP are complete hypocrites because they’re not calling Trump out on this and doing something about it. If a Democrat did such a thing, they’d be frothing with rage.

    • bkmn

      And don’t forget the media is quick to jump on a Democrat that the Republicans claim is doing something “horrid” but they ignore similar concerns raised by Democrats about the Republicans.

    • Todd20036

      They were frothing at Obama even though he took fewer vacations than any other modern president.

      • Schlukitz

        Taking vacations was just the “cover story”

        What they really couldn’t stand, was the fact that he was black.

        • lymis

          He still is.

          • safari

            Which is why he’s still the focus of rage even out of office.

            You’ve likely blocked me and won’t receive this, but in case you’re brave enough to examine differing opinions, I encourage you to do better research.

            Obama, whether or not he admitted it in the above fashion, was indeed “really good at killing people.” His escalation of drone warfare amply demonstrates this. As to your embarrassing ignorance of the ambiguous slur “conspiracy theory,” I encourage you to read this article on its history, meaning, and context:

            http://disinfo.com/2015/10/conspiracy-theory-and-the-failure-of-certainty/

          • ceeenbee

            Fuck you liar.

          • gustave courbet

            I’m lying about the quote? Or the author who cited the quote is lying? Regardless of its veracity, Obama did escalate the drone war and kill numerous civilians with high-powered explosives, your tantrum not withstanding.

          • ceeenbee

            Absolutely no corroboration. So, your re-quoting as a way of giving veracity to this ridiculous statement is a lie in itself.

            “. . . Obama did escalate the drone war and kill numerous civilians . . .”

            Numerous civilians?

            True enough, but why? Directly as a result of shrub and vader’s unjust and unwarranted invasion of sovereign country spurred by lies and false intelligence, a war that by varying estimates caused the deaths and injuries of anywhere between 125,000 and 1 million civilians.

          • gustave courbet

            Again, I’m not endorsing GOP war crimes, and I could address them at great length (would you like me to do so?).

            The problem is the that the “liberal opposition party” is ALSO COMMITTING WAR CRIMES, expanding the surveillance state, and allowing industry and finance to normalize corruption. There are no good guys in this story.

            As to your knee-jerk rebuttal of the above quote, journalists frequently repeat statements made to them “without corroboration.” Remember when Obama joked about killing the Jonas bros with a drone strike at the White House Press Corp dinner? Wasn’t that charming?

          • ceeenbee

            I don’t want to argue. I see your point and I see that we probably agree more than we disagree.

            I only take issue with your original statement. By putting quotations around that silly statement, you endeavored to make a lie a fact. I, and millions more, are getting damn tired of the lies and deceit of this administration. Yes, other have twisted or shaped facts but, never to the level of the shitgibbon, who does it with almost pathological relish. Vader was bad and got hundreds of thousands killed with his lies. The shitgibbon has to potential to dwarf that “achievement”. His bombast could kill millions across the globe and what is truly horrible is his utter disdain for the people in this country who will die by the thousands because of its and ryan’s proposals.

            I only ask you and others to be careful with quotes. We don’t need lies thrown around casually in such a combustible time.

            Thanks.

          • gustave courbet

            Fair enough. The problem is that there’s no evidence that the above statement is a lie. There IS evidence that Obama takes drone strikes lightly enough to joke about them publicly though.

            Believe me, I’m happy to walk back statements that can be proven wrong, but as far as I can tell, the ghoulish Obama quote in question isn’t “a lie.” If you can find evidence to the contrary I’ll eat my words on that particular point.

            I’ll add that, in times as insane as these, it’s more important than ever to have principled positions on issues, rather than hypocritical partisan talking points that will shift 180 degrees based on who’s in office. Yes, Dolt 45 is a mendacious sack of shit (which I can discuss at length), but that doesn’t make the crimes and moral abrogations of the Obama regime any less appalling.

          • ceeenbee

            I’m not going to look for evidence of something that doesn’t exist. If you believe it does, it is incumbent on you to show a transcript or recording.

            As for your second statement, although the killing of any innocent civilians is appalling, the numbers killed as a result of drones under Obama pale in comparison to shrubs unjust war.

            I would like to know though, approximately 230,000 civilians died in the four months after the bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. At the time, Michael Debackey estimated that, had the war continued, their would have been 1.7–4 million casualties on the allies side and 5-10 million deaths on the Japanese side. Were the bombs justified?

          • gustave courbet

            You’re the one that called the statement a lie, despite the fact that neither Obama nor his adviser quoted in the cited article denied it. If you have a reason to call the statement a lie, other than wishing it weren’t true, I’m open to it. As I said, the fact that Obama PUBLICLY joked about drone killings implies the likelihood that he would do so in an intimate setting as well.

            As to your second paragraph, I agree W is a war criminal. I’m not comparing the scale of their crimes but rather pointing out that Obama has committed crimes. Should we let murderers off the hook because there are worse murderers out there? Such moral relativism is how atrocities are justified. If you’ll recall, the preemptive invasion of Iraq was justified by the claim that to not act would cause potentially greater calamity.

            And, as to your non sequitur regarding WWII, that is an interesting but complex discussion that has nothing to do with the above, and is much larger than can be addressed here.

          • ceeenbee

            “If you’ll recall, the preemptive invasion of Iraq was justified by the claim that to not act would cause potentially greater calamity.”

            Exactly, “the claim” but, as we all know “the claim” was a lie. There were no WMD’s. There was no yellow cake. There were no mobile sarin labs. It was all lies. Although there have certainly been innocent civilian deaths in the last administration, those deaths were not because of trumped up intelligence and lying. Bad intelligence? Almost certainly. Excusable? No. An inevitable consequence of war? Most definitely.

            The question on WWII is not a non sequitur. It is vitally on topic, current and important. You seem to think that all innocent death is morally intolerable but equivocate on answering the question of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Who is the moral relativist?

          • gustave courbet

            So, attempting to stay on topic, if you have a reasonable reason to call the quote I used a lie, other than not liking it, I’m open. As I said, there’s good circumstantial evidence to suggest its veracity.

            Your other two paragraphs veer into very complex subjects that are lengthy discussion of themselves. I don’t agree with your caricatures but can’t really parse them without getting into those subjects in depth.

          • ceeenbee

            Do you believe in unicorns? I have no reason to not believe in them just because I have never seen one. Some people claim to have seen them so, I guess they exist.

            We live in a time where everything is recorded or documented somewhere, especially regarding the president. It should be much easier to prove the existence of this quote then to prove it doesn’t exist. Although, I guess the complete lack of any type of documentation could be considered proof.

          • gustave courbet

            Again, you’ve delivered no reason to dispute the quote, other than not liking it.

            On the other hand, I’ve demonstrated that there is evidence that Obama would say something to that effect, namely, journalists usually don’t make shit up, neither Obama nor his aids denied the statement, he PUBLICLY made a joke about drone warfare more distasteful than the quote you’ve disputed, and he’s enthusiastically committed to a variety of ruthless programs.

            As to your question elsewhere about presidential candidates “desire to take innocent blood,” I’ll paraphrase Noam Chomsky talking about IMF policies: they’re not malevolent, just indifferent to suffering if it gets in the way of their ambition. I’m not singling out Obama, merely pointing out that he’s morally culpable for his administration’s policies. It requires real courage to stand against the establishment powers and say “no,” and unsurprisingly, few are up to the task that are in the position to and would want to make a run for the office. The last president that made a serious attempt to move away from the ruthless militarism that is the norm in US policy circles was murdered by elements of the national security state.

            I’ll take my leave of this conversation, as you’ve seem to hit a wall of cognitive dissonance. Again, feel free to use reason to make your argument, but asking me about WWII or unicorns, rather than providing a straight forward reason for thinking the contentious statement a lie is specious argumentation. If you come up with something, I’m listening.

          • ceeenbee

            Thank you. It all makes sense now!

            I was baffled as to why anyone would continue to insist that a statement with absolutely no corroboration could be attributed to one person as though it were fact. Puzzling it was!

            Then, there it was! A moment of stunning clarity!

            “The last president that made a serious attempt to move away from the ruthless militarism that is the norm in US policy circles was murdered by elements of the national security state.”

            A revelation! I was trying to have an intelligent, rational conversation with a conspiracy nut with thought patterns not grounded in reality. Why else the tenacity in defending the indefensible?

            Knowing this, I can now exit this conversation, secure in the knowledge that I have completely wasted my time. You, on the other hand, can leave and get back to listening to alex jones, glen beck, david barton and the tiny fingered, cheeto-faced, ferret wearing shitgibbon himself.

            Bless your heart.

          • gustave courbet

            Ah, yes to be expected indeed. I am indeed a conspiracy nut. Along with Jackie Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, the family of Martin Luther King Junior, Bertrand Russell, the US Federal Government (House Select Committee on Assassinations ring any bells?), and a host of credible and intelligent people who’s names you won’t know if I mention them because you apparently don’t read much beyond websites that tell you what you think you already know.

            I guess you’re one of the many smug and credulous people who take documented liar’s words at face value (great job ignoring my argument, using shallow caricature, and employing lazy generalization to lump me in with odious toadies like Alex Jones and Glen Beck btw)

            I don’t know why I thought you might be a thoughtful person, as you started our interaction with expletive laden nonsense, but I guess it’s my own fault for expecting rational discourse.

            I’ll be fucking off to my basement lair to huff paint and write sonnets to the Donald, but before I go, I’ll recommend this essay about the history, epistemology, and context of the term “conspiracy theory.” I doubt you’ll read it, but I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt, despite your embarrassing failure to demonstrate intellectual honesty. Good luck.

            An addendum, I ran across this excellent interview in which the inimitable Ray McGovern does a pretty good job of pointing out some of the lies that hold the American mythos together, from LBJ, to Bush to Obama. He’s an ex-CIA analyst and anti-war activist, and knows his shit backwards and forwards. Hope you check it out, and get off the Media Matters (I kicked that habit years ago).

            What’s media matters?

          • ceeenbee

            I ask this because, as an idealist, can you ever foresee a situation where the taking of innocent lives, while appalling, is the morally superior option?

          • gustave courbet

            Certainly. I’m not a pacifist. But if you think that that’s what the Obama administration’s drone program, secret wars, and coups were doing, I’ve got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

          • ceeenbee

            Exactly what do you think Obama’s motivations were then? Titillation? Just for shits and grins?

          • gustave courbet

            That’s an impossible question to answer. What I think Obama was thinking is of little value, as it’s conjecture based in ignorance. What Obama thinks he was doing might well not be accurate, either.

            What I can know with certainty is that he’s morally culpable in participating in the policies he oversaw, many of which were indeed criminal. If he didn’t want innocent blood on his hands then he wouldn’t have run for office, but his ambition propelled him to do so.

          • ceeenbee

            So, a requisite for those running for President is a desire to take innocent blood, otherwise they wouldn’t run. Interesting, so anybody with ambition of running for president wants to do so in order to kill innocents? Should we ever vote for a man or woman with presidential ambitions since, according to your statement, they are all sociopaths.?

          • juanjo54

            Gustave troll boy is posting a red herring. The discussing here is about Trump spending millions of his mini-vacations, as well as, on prote3cting his family while they reside in New York.

            The supposed quote is from a book with no actual attributable sources. Of course you also took the alleged quote and used only part of it, causing ti to lose any context.

            Then there is the fact his entire post is the classic troll tactic – I usually refer to it as the “Bobby did something bad too” argument since it is a common tactic among 7 year old children which seems to be the mental age of most trolls. The correct name is tu quoque – answering criticism with criticism. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ca42841bfa0308549e599dc3dc7022cf1ad0fe8e45281ced7d9f1d8ca2d25195.jpg

          • gustave courbet

            The ol’ “call someone with whom you disagree a troll” tactic really does a disservice to actual trolls out there.

            If you’ll scroll up in this thread you’ll see plenty of people waxing nostalgic about Obama, so you’d better admonish them for drifting off topic.

            My intent was to highlight the disappointing ignorance/appalling hypocrisy of many people who fail to condemn the Obama administration’s crimes while decrying Trumps every move.

            I’d be happy to “get on topic” with you and point out Trump’s many flaws, from his long history of corruption, unethical business practices, associations with organized crime, etc, not to mention his staggering ignorance, chronic prevarication, and diagnosable personality disorder.

            BUT, if you’re like many Trump supporters in that you can’t apply rational analysis and moral standards to the behavior of a President you like, then you’re just as shallow, if slightly more clever.

          • ceeenbee

            Your flaw here, and the one that got the tiny fingered, cheeto-faced, ferret wearing shitgibbon elected, is a false equivalency between the shitgibbon and HRC (or Obama, by extension, in your mind). It is the equivalence that HRC’s emails are equal to the gross incompetence of a pathological narcissist and liar.

            It is your naïveté that all transgressions are equal and that a candidate must be perfect or we should not vote for them or just toss a coin that got a pathological liar and sociopath elected. News flash, there is no such candidate.

          • gustave courbet

            Since I haven’t made any of the arguments you’re attempting to refute here, I’ll let that one dangle.

          • ceeenbee

            So you are not making an equivalency argument about the election of the shitgibbon? I am curious then, who was the better choice during this election, the shitgibbon or HRC? If it were the shitgibbon against Obama, who would be the better choice for the country? I know the second question is not fair but, life’s not fair.

          • gustave courbet

            I would say Clinton, odious though she is, and of course Obama is a better choice than the apricot Pol Pot.

            Have we given up on the “Fuck me liar” angle and you’re looking to score point here?

          • ceeenbee

            I apologize for the “fuck you”. I do not apologize for my disdain for someone who would put a statement out and surround it in quotation marks as though it was recorded or documented fact it wasn’t. It was a lie. Again, if you insist it was not, then it is incumbent on you to prove it. That’s all I have to do is say “it never occurred” and I can not be proven wrong because there is no evidence to the contrary.

            mythological sky faeries do not exist. Until jeebuz comes down on touches me on the shoulder, I can not be proven wrong.

            As I said, a complete troll who doesn’t understand or simply doesn’t care that all he does is engage in logical fallacies. Red herrings, tu quoque and other forms of fallacies are all you have.

          • gustave courbet

            You’ve said so, but that doesn’t make it so. As I said, Obama was under discussion, so I entered that discussion, because I saw some rose-tinted BS. If that’s not straight-forward to you, I can’t strip it down further.

          • juanjo54

            All I am seeing here is more BS from a troll. The discussion at hand concerned the expenditures incurred due to vacation by the president. You decided to toss in a red herring, a tu quoque argument and other assorted delusional drivel. That is what all of your commentary strips down to.

            Sweetie – I am discussing your inadequacies with you. Try to refrain from the tu quoque drivel. I mean, I get it. You are upset because people said nice things about the Black guy. Whether or not I agree or disagree with their comments or address something they said is irrelevant to my pointing out your inadequacies.

          • gustave courbet

            Honey pie, you’re welcome to your assertions, (if I’m keeping track correctly, I’m: a. a troll, b. using logically fallacious argumentation, c. a racist for criticizing a Black with a capital B guy) but unless you back them with something more than high-class name calling, I’ll be unable to take them seriously.

            If you: resort to name calling, can’t answer simple questions, or proffer an argument, perhaps the troll in this situation is on your end of the keyboard. I’m happy to have a rational conversation about a point of contention, but can’t do that alone.

          PWB. Presidenting While Black

          I got sidetracked on YouTube last night, watching videos of Obama at various WH Correspondents Dinners and it was really kind of depressing to that much class, intelligence, and grace then realize “Oh fuck, now we have a lying orange shit-weasel instead.”

        I do hate to make such sweeping generalizations about an entire group of people, in this case based assumptions about the character of a slice of America, but when examining the issues, the supporters of the GOP claim to stand for one kind of thing (freedom and love, for example) and yet everything about their own actions and the actions of those whom they vote into power works against actual Freedom and shows a rather twisted, shrunken, battered, and limited version of Love.

      If a Democrat did even 1/10 of the shit trump has done the Republicans would, rightfully, have them impeached and jailed for treason. They’re letting trump get away with it for now because they know that the things he’s trying to do will take the Democrats at least two 4 year terms to undo and then during the election after that they can point out how the Democrat who won didn’t do anything while president.

      grammarians: could care less/couldn’t care less?
      (not that the man can use the language correctly)

      • Ernest Endevor

        I think in the UK we couldn’t care less while here in the States we could.

        • from Grammar Girl (bolding mine)

          “The phrase “I couldn’t care less” originated in Britain and made its way to the United States in the 1950s. The phrase “I could care less” appeared in the US about a decade later.

          In the early 1990s, the well-known Harvard professor and language writer Stephen Pinker argued that the way most people say could care less—the way they emphasize the words—implies they are being ironic or sarcastic.

          Other linguists have argued that the type of sound at the end of “couldn’t” is naturally dropped by sloppy or slurring speakers.

          Regardless of the reason people say they could care less, it is one of the more common language peeves because of its illogical nature. To say you could care less means you have a bit of caring left, which is not what the speakers seem to intend. The proper “couldn’t care less” is still the dominant form in print, but “could care less” has been steadily gaining ground since its appearance in the 1960s.”

    Future Presidential historians will record what an incredible incredible embarrassment to the United States Donald Trump was. From the perspective of the world stage I can’t think of any one event which has more diminished the United States’ standing in the world than Trump’s election as President.

    Never mind his actions and behaviors since inauguration day; can you imagine what future generations will think when they hear that sexually predatory language of his in the “Access Hollywood” tape and try to understand how such a vulgar thing as he could be elected President of the most powerful nation on Planet Earth.

    • Sam

      W. was an embarrassment. Trump is a national disgrace.

      • another_steve

        Good distinction, that.

        Perhaps there’s a word in English that captures both “embarrassment” and “disgrace.”

        In Yiddish (a most expressive language), there’s an expression that describes an act that a Jew does that brings both embarrassment and disgrace to the Jewish people as a whole: “shanda fur di goyim.”

        When you’re a kid growing up and your Jewish mother tells you that something you’ve just done is a shanda fur di goyim, you know you’ve really fucked up.

        I had a squirrel once chew through my screen, enter my kitchen, and drag a mostly empty jar of peanut butter back to the screen but drop it when it couldn’t pull it through. This all happened while I took a nap.

          • Uncle Mark

            I saw this early one morning when I first started working from home. I had just walked into the room with my first cup of coffee, and from a distance, it looked like it was levitating in the doorway.

          • I had two as pets when I was very little – around 1st grade. Mom rescued them from their nest after their mother had been run over. They were my shadows, even showered with me. Later Mom rescued a baby raccoon from a storm drain, he bit the shit out of her hand but spent the next two years following me around like a wart on my butt. “Fat Tony” was my bestest-best bud until 4th grade and we moved back to the Twin Cities. Gave him to the nurse who worked at the camp, and she had him for another 7.
            Now I have a half dozen in pairs raising their babies in the trees in my neighborhood. One pair is very brave, or else they know a sucker for 4-legged-and-furry when they see one. The male walks right up to me when I’m out on the porch having a smoke. I know he’s feeding babies, so I take out a handful of unsalted peanuts and sunflower seeds for him and the missus. He comes within 3 feet of me, she’s not as brave and stops at about 6 feet. What they don’t carry back to the nest the mated pair of cardinals come and munch. The rest of the birds are to timid, but these two little shits practically land on my lap to feast on the leftovers.

    He’s a mobster. He’s meeting with other international (Russian) thieves…planning how and where to launder the money. Please.

  • coram nobis

    Yes, but what’s his score? He needs to show something for his 100 days.

    • Treant

      Let’s just say he’s got a large handicap. Or, we could say, he’s severely handicapped.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Yeah, like less than .8 % of my tweets.

  • AJA

    I crunched some numbers, and if the first 100 days are any indication, Trump will have cost American tax payers $300 MILLION in his four years in trips to Mar-a-Lago. Just as a reminder, ALL of Obama’s vacations and leisure time for a family of four only cost us $98 million in EIGHT years.

    This of course, isn’t even counting the cost of keeping his porcelain figurine and son held hostage in NYC, which may end up costing us $200 billion if she doesn’t move in to the WH.

    As always, follow the money. Do you know who DOES make money on this? TRUMP. He only golfs on Trump properties, so the Secret Service has to pay to stay there. Same with Trump Tower. WHY ARE WE LETTING THIS GUY GET AWAY WITH TAKING MONEY OUT OF OUR POCKETS TO PAY FOR HIS LIFESTYLE?!

    • worstcultever

      please rant anytime

    • Adam King

      Does that figure include the expense for the Secret Service guarding his adult children on their constant pointless excursions?

      • AJA

        Unfortunately, no. I couldn’t find figures for how much Ivanka and Jared’s less-than-official roles and travel are costing us, but I’m sure the number is higher than it needs to be (it needs to be $0, if you ask me)

        • Adam King

          Anyone that rich with even an ounce of decency would pay for their own security instead of charging taxpayers, of course. It’s that ounce that’s missing in these monsters. And that includes Uday and Qusay and that other daughter, She Who Shall Not Be Mentioned.

  • bkmn
  • j.martindale

    The Rethugs are good at manipulating the media. Dems suck at it. The issue of the wildly extravagant expenditures on the Trump family security and travel should be the ONLY thing they talk about for two or three days–all of them. If they would stay on that message, they could really rile up the American voter. They need to coordinate their message so that it resonates. And I KNOW that this resonates.

    • NowAnAgnostic

      But who would report on it? Certainly not the main stream media.

      • j.martindale

        I don’t know about that. I’d like to see what they do when the Dems try to focus the news media on their issue of the day.

    • worstcultever

      The Rethugs are good at manipulating the media. Dems suck at it.

      But WHY GOD WHY? This game has been going on for 30+ years now. It’s beyond belief how little the dems seem to even be bothered to, like, ever even PLAY.

      Truly it blows my mind. Just about ANYBODY on this board (e.g.) could articulate an aggressive, effective, succinct resistance message to ANY repuke bullshit du jour. And yet the dem establishment – just barely anything ever. It’s like the puke noise machine is a daily nuclear bomb, and our side is showing up with lemonade and nerf bats. Forever. (And offering them lemonade!)

      • it’s on purpose. the rich control both parties. the dems are directed to not be too effective.

      • CB

        What continues to stagger me is that when Obama was in office, the repugs held daily press conferences to vilify him. Where are the dems on this? The mainstream media may not cover it, but seriously some will, and it could rouse constituents.

      • RJ Bone

        They’re too busy “talking the high road” and “trusting the voters to know what’s best”.

        It needs to stop.

    • Adam King

      Exactly–and the first step is as you say, coordinating the message. Why the hell doesn’t the Democratic leadership do that? It’s not rocket science.

  • worstcultever

    OT but not really: I simply can’t subject my eyes and psyche to images of Dumpy anymore. Especially the head shots where he’s doing his toddler aggression. I cant stand looking at these images over and over, day after day. It feels like continually subjecting myself to self-abuse (and not the good kind). Just the sight of his face, over and over, his visual awfulness, his sick and stupid expressions, feel like an assault. I scroll away as quickly as possible, so as to not see his image at all. Does anybody else feel this way?

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      I thought there was an app that changes his pictures to kittens. Maybe you should look into that.

      • Joe

        Seriously!!!? I would PAY for that app… and… I just looked it up. Available on Google Chrome… may have to download and make the switch from Firefox!

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        It’s called “Make America Kittens Again.” We have it as an extension on our Chrome browser (not sure if it’s available for other browsers). It replaces photos of the jerk-who-shall-not-be-named with images of adorable kittens. It’s been a life-saver many mornings.

        • PickyPecker

          I use that. Saves me from some severe agitation.

      • worstcultever

        I heard it’s a Chrome thing – not an option for moi, alas

        Anyway I think I’d like to start a larger boycott of his image everywhere – why should this ugly asshole be allowed to take up everyone’s eye space so much every day?

    • PickyPecker

      To be fair, the shitgibbon doesn’t photograph well in the least. That said, I am right there with you.

    • jmax

      I don’t watch news on TV anymore because I can’t stand the sight of him. Even hearing his voice on the radio makes me want to scream. But what is most infuriating is how the media treats this asshole like he’s worthy of respect or even basic trust after all the blatant lying he has done.

    • i avoid most mainstream media except for stuff people c&p from sites in the comments at the blogs i read. i have images hidden and autoplay blocked. i listen to soothing, low key music when i blog about politics, so my blood pressure does not rise. i am thinking about switching to chrome so i can use the Make America Kittens Again app.

    • Adam King

      Yes. Exactly that way.

    • yes b’y

      I will Issue a warning with any posts that have his freaking ugly face in them from now on.

    • stuckinthewoods

      omigod Yes

    • thatotherjean

      Absolutely. I can’t stand the sound of his voice or the look on his face, so whenever either appear, I scroll past/change the channel as quickly as possible to avoid them.

    • Yes. Every time I see one of those photos, it feels like the wildfire is rising inside me and drawing ever closer to bursting out, burning everything in sight.

      • Halou

        According to Trump logic, unemployment during the election campaign was said to be something like 47%. A claim about as true as when Obi Wan said Darth Vader killed Anakin Skywalker. It is true, from a certain point of view.

        Indeed it is a fact that approximately 47% of Americans are not in work, among the many reasons for this is that some of them are old aged pensioners, some of them are children who are too young to work, some of them are in adult education like university, some of them are severely disabled, ill, hospitalized or otherwise not able to work, and of course a small fraction are ‘unemployed’ in the commonly understood sense of the word.

    • safari

    OT – That didn’t take long. Turkey has banned access to Wikipedia and banned dating shows on TV/radio.

    http://www.salon.com/2017/04/29/turkey-bans-popular-tv-and-radio-dating-shows/

    It seems that the emboldened Turkish government feels that Wikipedia is “propaganda” or “fake news.” No wonder Trump was so quick to congratulate Erdogan.

    While Trump deserves every ounce of savaging he receives in the press, it’s dispiriting to see such ill-informed lauding of Obama, with his legacy of Wall Street greed, and imperial wars. He even expanded the surveillance state AFTER Trump had won the election.

    • lymis

      And did a hell of a lot of good, including doing a lot of things to recover from the Bush years.

      And no analysis of the Obama years is complete without a denunciation of the Republican Congress who openly made it clear that their priority was keeping anything from happening. Imagine what might have happened if they’d actually chosen to participate.

      • gustave courbet

        Allow me to clarify. I’m not extolling the virtues of the GOP, but rather pointing out the Obama Administrations complicity in the most dangerous policies of the Bush years.

        Obama did indeed throw some bones to his liberal base, but of lasting consequence were his Admin’s continued direct attacks on American democracy, of which BOTH parties are complicit.

        Yes, Obama is better than Trump by a factor of 1000, but ignoring the egregious policies Barack abetted is either partisan politicking or an argument based in ignorance.

        • kareemachan

          “But” That little words that means “don’t believe anything I said before it”.

      • gustave courbet

        Let me ask you a question: do you think the desperately poor people of the third world care whether it’s Obama or Trump dropping bombs on them, or training local death squads how to use the new guns they’ve been gifted?

  • KaBoomBOX

    Doesn’t care because it’s not coming out of his pocket (he actually makes money off from it), plus he’s selling access to the president, lock him up.

    • Halou

      Doubling the membership fee at mar-a-lago after “winning” the election. Totally not profiting from the job. It was probably also his idea that Melania and Barron stay in New York too, forcing the Secret Service to pay Trump for renting an entire floor at Trump Tower.
      The only time he has earned more money was in the 90s when he was helping Russian oligarchs launder their stolen billions.

    “I don’t want to be known as a person that relaxes because I am working hard … for the people and we’re doing a great job.” We don’t want him to be known as the current president or even the ex one. No he is NOT doing a great job–not even a GOOD one–or else his approval rating would be oh so much higher.

    I can’t remember any other president who has ever felt the need for “rallies” of this kind. He’s really a vacuous ego in need of praise and stroking, even if it’s all fabricated by his own folks just for his own appeasement.

    His parents really needed to give him some attention when he was young.

    • EweTaw

      He really wants to become chancellor. I don’t think he believes this president thing is enough for him.

        Besides, presidenting is HARD.

  • Halou

    “It would be much better if people would understand that I could go other places than I have,”

    People would understand if he went to Camp David instead, first because that location is set up for the President and if a crisis occurs, such as North Korea launching a missile, he’s not caught having to deal with it at the dinner table in full view of random members of the public.
    And secondly, going to Camp David means that the Secret Service are not forced to pay over $35,000 of taxpayer money in three months to Donald Trump, renting his golf carts which are used to follow Donald Trump around Donald Trump’s property.

  • goofy_joe

    If you’re not all that concerned about playing golf every weekend here’s a tip. Stop. Here’s a few more

    1) Stop golfing
    2) Stay in D.C.
    3) Bring your wife and son to D.C.
    4) Have your very wealthy children pay for their own security, as a gesture to the American people that you care about where our tax dollars are going (see Ronny Reagan Jr. & The Nixons post Presidency)
    5) Use some of your personal wealth, which you so highly brag about, and offer to pay back the government for some of those weekend trips

    Do those things, and show some compassion for those of us scraping by to pay ever rising rent and cost of living in this country, and we MIGHT change our minds about you.
