Kidboy  darling,  don't you think that you should choose to get involved in other issues?  I am  sure that you realize that the Trump Administration has spent millions more than Obama did in 8 years. and this is only the second year. come on, you used to criticize Obama for his reckless expenditures. and now is silence from you.  we have all your post from that time would like to see them again?

I am still waiting for Mexico to pay for "THE WALL".  Or maybe Pink Floyd should pay for it. 

 

The only group that should not pay for it is American citizens.  This will only serve to increase the nation's deficit.  The congress deserves to stay home.    This is all on the chump in the White House.  Sorry, I meant Trump in the White House.

His first year in office was 2009, which is the year I referenced. His Hawaiian vacation that year lasted 11 days. That is hardly the "month each christmas" you claimed. He left one christmas vacation after 4 days. 4 days isn't a "month" either. You keep referencing the 2013 trip. Did you not even read the dateline from the article you posted?

So, Trump has shut down the government. the Republicans have announced they are outta town until Trump makes up his mind,  and it is the holiday season when many families take their vacations. Seems a perfect time for Pelosi to take a vacation. 

 

We all know that she is going to be super busy after Jan 4 saving the government and investigating all the bad things the Snowflake did while there was no adult supervision from Congress.

So you are saying that, compared to Trump, Obama's travel was a bargain.  Trump's trips cost $17 Million for direct costs and another $17 million for the Coast Guard, transporting equipment, and other costs. 

 

 

Guess what. Trump has been to Mar-a-Lago 17 times, for a grand total of $17 million in flight and protection costs.

The dates of those trips:

  • Feb. 3, 2017
  • Feb. 10, 2017
  • Feb. 17, 2017
  • March 3, 2017
  • March 17, 2017
  • April 6, 2017
  • April 13, 2017
  • Nov. 21, 2017
  • Dec. 8, 2017
  • Dec. 22, 2017
  • Jan. 12, 2018
  • Feb. 2, 2018
  • Feb. 16, 2018
  • March 2, 2018
  • March 23, 2018
  • March 29, 2018
  • April 16, 2018

Again, this is including only two subsets of the costs incurred by the federal government. It doesn’t include, Judicial Watch told the AP, things like “airlifting equipment such as the presidential limousines.” Nor does it include all the costs of protection. In July of last year, The Washington Post determined that the Coast Guard had spent about $6.6 million on guarding the beachfront-adjacent property over the course of Trump’s first five visits there. If the other visits were similarly expensive, the overall price tag essentially doubles.

Trump's christmas vacation last year cost $3M, and he never left the mainland. Trump and his family have already cost the US more in vacation expenses in just his first year in office, than the Obama family did in 8 years. If the cons want to harp on costs, maybe they should pick an expense item where they don't come off sounding like a bunch of hypocrites.

You can't argue facts with right wingers, Cent. Obama never spent "about a month" in Hawaii as president. His first year in office, he was there for 11 days. Of course, that might be a month when it comes to republican math. That sure would explain the ballooning deficit on their watch!

 

So true, BigLib. The idiocy of many within a minority group would be laughable if it wasn't so pathetic.
