Trump has visited his two golf courses near his Mar-a-Lago estate — Trump International Golf Course in West Palm Beach and Trump National Golf Course in Jupiter . Trump has been the President for four weeks and he’s already been six times to the golf course. That’s a lot of golf from the person who condemned Obama because he played golf.
Trump’s decision to spend three consecutive weekends at his “southern White House” stands in contrast to what he promised during the campaign, when he said he’d “rarely leave the White House.”
“I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done,” Trump told a reporter in 2015. “I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off… You don’t have time to take time off.”
Yet Trump is playing golf often and the cost to taxpayers is $3 Million per weekend. The annual cost of guarding Trump Tower could be as high as $183 million, which is required now that Melania is staying outside the White House.
Trump stands to benefit from all these taxpayers expenses. In order to have constant access to the commander-in-chief, and to protect the First Lady, the military is forced to rent space in Trump Tower at a taxpayer cost estimated to be $1.5 million annualy. Worse yet, that money is lining the Trump family’s pockets. Relocating the executive branch to Mar-a-Lago each weekend raises the profile of the club and encourages people to pay for the access to the President that a $200,000 membership provides. And the Trump sons’ international business trips generate free publicity for the Trump Organization, while their appearances at the White House reinforce the message that doing business with them is a way to gain access to their father.
Contrast Trump’s spending with his proposal would eliminate “longstanding conservative targets like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Legal Services Corporation, AmeriCorps and the National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities,” the New York Times reports. “Most of the programs cost under $500 million annually, a pittance for a government that is projected to spend about $4 trillion this year. Thus Trump is making himself and his family richer by taking away hard-earned tax dollars and giving it to himself. It appears that Trump’s idea of how to make America Great Again is to make himself and his family wealthier, and the poor, poorer.
How heavy is Trump? He usually appears in a dark suit so it is difficult to get a true picture. However experts estimate his weight to be around 250lbs. Does it matter if our President is overweight? Only if he is 70 years old, eats fried chicken
and is expected to live for the next four years. Certainly these images would seem to contradict that Trump will be the “healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
This picture of Trump playing golf is a clear indication of just how healthy Trump really is.
Perhaps Trump should avoid the golf cart all together, and walk the 18 holes!
Since before the election, Donald Trump has lied with great frequency. Kellyanne Conway has admitted that Trump lies sometimes because he just doesn’t know the truth.
After the election we gained proof that Kellyanne Conway lies with great frequency as well. Her comments to Jake Tapper were unconscionable.
Her lies about the Bowling Green Massacre were a prime example where she totally made up an event in an attempt to create hate and distrust of Muslims.
Now Donald Trump has made reference to terrorism in Sweden, Sweden, Sweden,which occurred last night. The only thing wrong with that assertion is that there was NO terrorist attack in Sweden last night.
What did occur last night was a Fox News interview Friday night with Ami Horowitz, who presented a clip from a new film documenting alleged violence committed by refugees in Sweden. The segment went on extensively about a supposed crime surge in Sweden and its links to immigrant populations. Whether the segment was true or not, there was no terrorist attack in Sweden Friday night. The President of the United States has demonstrated that he doesn’tknow the difference between fact or fiction. He doesn’t know the difference between an actual threat to our national security and a fictitious movie about it. Now we understand why Trump is so quick to talk about “Fake News.” He is watching too much Fox News.
Let’s hope he doesn’t watch INDEPENDENCE DAY,
THE SUM OF ALL FEARS, or
WHITE HOUSE DOWN from the Mar a logo Resort on the weekend.
Trump has posted this video of himself on Twitter, in which he reportedly is singing with his fellow Marines! Hurrah!!! As long as Trump is going to make up FAKE NEWS he should go “all in”.
Update, Chelsea Clinton must watch the same news program that I do!
“What happened in Sweden Friday night? Did they catch the Bowling Green Massacre perpetrators?”
It’s been only two weeks and Trump’s disapproval rating has set a new record! 53% of Americans already disapprove of his Presidency! That’s the lowest approval rating of a President in the history of polling! At this rate he’ll be without any supporters except Sarah Palin by the end of February. Maybe he should just quit like Palin and go back to making reality television shows.
Of course Trump responded to the polls by denying the truth of the disapproval. He said:
“Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.”
2,865,075: The number of individual votes by which Donald Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton
44 percent: Trump’s favorability rating among American voters going into the inauguration – the lowest on record
6: The number of law enforcement and intelligence agencies investigating whether the Kremlin funneled money to the Trump campaign throughout the election
200: The number of buses that have applied for Trump inauguration parking permits, compared to 3,000 for Obama’s 2009 inauguration
1,200: The number of buses that have applied for parking permits for the Women’s March on Washington Saturday
26: The number of groups that, as of early January, had applied for permits to protest the inauguration
200,000: The number of demonstrators who are expected to attend the Washington women’s march, joined by many thousands of others at hundreds of sister marches worldwide; it’s expected to be the biggest protest tied to an inauguration in U.S. history
65 and counting: The number of Congress members who are boycotting the inauguration
$90 million: The amount of money raised by the Inaugural Committee
$1 million: The cost of the most expensive inaugural ticket package, which includes access to the swearing in, an inaugural ball, a concert, a fireworks show, a parade and “an intimate dinner with Vice President-elect Mike Pence and Mrs. Karen Pence”
3: The number of inaugural balls Trump and his wife Melania will attend; the Obamas attended 10 in 2009
More than 50 House members said they’ll skip this week’s inauguration festivities.
Hundreds of thousands protested Trump’s ban of Muslim immigration were organized in at least 40 different cities across America.
Global protests broke out in multiple cities including Berlin, Toronto, London, and Paris. The only thing”Fake” about Trump’s ratings is that anyone thinks he is doing a good job, other than people he pays to say good things about him.
In an effort to stay relevant, Sarah Palin continues to Tweet thoughts and comments, like Trump, on an almost hourly basis. We know that Sarah has a hard time formulating a coherent thought once a day, much less on an hourly basis. Her recent Twitter post evidences the absurdity of her logic! In an effort to criticize Obama, and promote Donald Trump, Sarah Tweeted:
The link takes the reader to a story about Trump giving a $10,000 check to the son of a man who has cancer. Of course the grown son was a Trump supporter. This poor man, the Trump supporter, couldn’t afford a suit to wear to Trump’s inauguration, so a friend bought him a suit to make it possible for the man to attend the inauguration.
Trump invited the man to his inauguration. This is a way to increase the size of the inaugural crowd, and suggest to the public that attending his inauguration was something everyone would want to do. The man’s father’s name is Don. According to a report from NewsMax, Trump didn’t call the father and wish him good luck with his cancer treatment. He complimented the patient because he had a name, like Trump’s that was a “great name.” Trump said to the man dying of cancer:
“Hey, Don, You Have A Great Name.”
Because the father’s son was a Trump supporter, Trump then told the dying man that “You Have A Good Boy.”
The President, assuming everyone would want his autograph, signed an autograph for the man’s four-year-old son. Anyone with a shred of humanity would understand that this 4 year old wouldn’t care about having Trump’s autograph, but instead would want his grandfather to be around to watch his graduation from Kindergarten. Trump, the billionaire, then presented the father with a $10,000 check. Ten Thousand dollars for a billionaire would be less than one-day’s interest on is investments. This gesture came on the heels of Trump’s first executive order targeting Obamacare. This order was the beginning of the end of nationalized health care. Without any replacement provisions, Trump’s one-page order, signed on the day of his inauguration in a hastily arranged Oval Office ceremony shortly before departing for the inaugural balls, gave no specifics about which aspects of the law it was targeting. But its broad language gave federal agencies wide latitude to change, delay or waive provisions of the law that they deemed overly costly for insurers, drug makers, doctors, patients or states, suggesting that it could have wide-ranging impact, and essentially allowing the dismantling of the law to begin even before Congress moves to repeal it. Thus, as this adult son was watching Trump’s inauguration, Trump was returning to the White House to eliminate the very medical care that could save this man’s father’s life. The fact that Trump pretended to be generous by writing the son a $10,000 check was insulting. Newly approved cancer drugs cost an average of $10,000 per month, with some therapies topping $30,000 per month. Just a decade ago, the average cost per month of new drugs was about $4,500. Patients typically pay 20 to 30 percent out of pocket for drugs, so an average year’s worth of new drugs would cost $24,000 to $36,000 in addition to their actual medical care.
For SarahPalin to suggest that Donald Trump was acting generously by giving this man a $10,000.00 check, while repealing the health care his father needed to save his life, demonstrates that she is either clueless or heartless, or both. The $10,000 check was only enough money for the son to cover the cost of his father’s funeral that would inevitably result for the signing of Trump’s first executive order.
