Donald Trump handed out turkey sandwiches and potato chips to the members of the Coast Guard stationed near Mar a Lago as a way to justify his trip to Florida over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Of course he had turkey and all the fixings at his Thanksgiving table in between playing the 17th and 18th hole of golf.
President Barack Obama and his family had spent past Thanksgivings working in soup kitchens. Evidently the soup kitchens weren’t compatible with golf. Trump’s Thanksgiving meal in Mar-a-Lago later in the day included “turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes with marshmallows — as well as local produce, red snapper, Florida stone crab and a variety of baked goods, cakes, and pies,” a spokeswoman for the first lady told The New York Times.
Trump made a speech while passing out the bags of chips. Whether it was the lack of prepared remarks or too much fast food, Trump made some of the most bizarre comments of any speeches so far during this presidency.
Then Trump was hurried off to his Palm Beach golf course where he spent at least five hours. His staff wouldn’t say how much golf he played during his five-day trip but his time on the links did include golfing with pros Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Brad Faxon on one occasion and with retired pro Jack Nicklaus on another, The Associated Press reported.
Trump’s Thanksgiving venture to Palm Beach cost taxpayers a whopping $2 million dollars just fort he flights to and from Mar a Lago. That’s a high price to pay for turkey.
The articles of impeachment included five different grounds for impeachment. They included obstruction of justice in his firing of former FBI Director James Comey, violated the foreign emoluments clause by taking money from foreign powers, violated the domestic emoluments clause by profiting off of the Trump brand during his presidency, undermined the federal judiciary by and undermined the freedom of the press with his persistent badgering of the news media.
