"Hey, I'd rather loaf in Florida than stay in the White House and work! Whaddya think I am, a real President?"
This post commences what I call the Trump Vaca-tracker where I track how many times this asshole takes time off to go to his little rich boy estate at Mar- a-Lago, or to Trump Tower in NYC. This is also to keep track of all the taxpayer money the "whiny little bitch" (as Bill Maher calls him) is throwing away. As of this instant, with his third trip in 4 weeks to Mar- a -Lago the tab to the taxpayer is $10 million. Process that. Process also Trump claimed while campaigning that he would not be a president who took vacations.
But according to the Palm Beach Post, a recent Federal Aviation Administration advisory states that Trump will be in Palm Beach Monday through Friday. Hey, Trump, it isn't Easter break yet!
Other process points:
- Trump has spent 11 of 33 days in office loafing at Mar-a- Lago. That is a full 33 percent of his time in office.
- The costs that add up for taxpayers include: Secret Service and local police deputies guarding the estate, the U.S. Coast Guard having to be deployed in surrounding waters and Air Force One - costing $180,000 per hour to operate. Thus, each 4 hour flight to his seaside estate costs roughly $700,000.
Are any of his delirious groupies processing any of that? Are they okay with it? Or are they going to continue to act like whiny little Trump bitches, blaming those "bitter haters and liberals" for not "giving him a chance"?
And remind yourselves this is the same turd who said Obama was "wasting tax money" and "taking more time off than other human" barely two years ago. For reference, Obama's vacation tax tab averaged $12 million a year and ran to a total of $96 million after eight years. At the rate Trump is taking off - $10 m already the past 4 weeks - if he continues at the same rate (and there's no reason to believe he won't - see below) he will have run up a total of $480 MILLION on the U.S. taxpayers. This is assuming $10m a month for the next 47 months - assuming: a) the inflation rate remains the same - which is likely pie-eyed optimistic, and b) the dope isn't booted from office by impeachment or the 25th amendment
Trump's little minions and voters who dwell on fake news and BS from Lush Limburger (to rot their brains) need to be reminded again of what their boy President said in the campaign:
"I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done. 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."
And yet he's taking time off - massive chunks now - at a clip. Why? Because the little bastard hates to work! At least he hates to work at governing. He loves to go out and re- campaign like he did in SC yesterday with all the Trumpies in their red hats celebrating. But as Bill Maher put it last night, "Sorry, you don't get to have month long birthday parties". In other words, you're supposed to be a big boy - indeed a President - so act like one, as opposed to a goldbricker.
Recall the guy has never really worked at a real job outside of owning his family branding business (who could order anyone to do his bidding) and being a real estate weasel who used bankruptcy (of multiple casinos) to make more $$$. The little bitch even bawled that the presidency had turned out to be too much for him to deal with. Too many details, too much stuff to master for an extensive government bureaucracy. Hence, his penchant for becoming a cable TV and tweet addict. See e.g.
“Being president is harder than Donald Trump thought,” begins the article, neatly capturing the blithe, criminal ignorance that characterizes both Trump himself and the many dozens of millions of morons who thought he should be the leader of the free world. Yes, being the president is a harder job than Donald Trump would expect, because Donald Trump had never previously held an actual job, because actually, spending your inheritance on a succession of failed cons is not an actual job."
But hey, if the job is too much maybe he ought to resign. It beats wasting time tweeting and watching TV for nine hours a day - when he isn't hosting his little rich country club boys in FLA or playing golf with them. On the taxpayer's dime.
Of course, his delusional followers and lackeys, hacks will insist he's "working while he's away" To which I call BULL SHIT! There is little doubt, very little, that if you are incapable of putting a full day's work in your normal work environment, you will not do it once you leave to go to a spacious hacienda with golf course, hot tubs and fancy restaurants. Such as the one a Mar -a- Lago last week when the boy wonder - eating a salad with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe - was informed North Korea had just launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile. Instead of leaving the dining area for a secure room, Trump and his advisors scrambled to figure out what was happening while guests at the club watched and took photos, as reported by CNN
The word is that the episode left the national security state gasping and even more determined to oust this little fool by non-violent coup (using leaks) if at all feasible.
We can argue and debate lots of things, but one thing we know from the past four weeks is that President Tweet (aka 'Twitter Troll of The United States') hates the job of actually governing!
