In One Month, Trump Has Spent More On Travel Than Obama Did In A Year

More and videos at the link. :Crooks and Liars

Travel expenses for Trump and his sons total $11.3 million in one month, almost as much as Obama spent in a year, according to the Independent. Watch:

The bulk of the money has gone to Trump's travel to Mar-a-Lago, his exclusive resort in Palm Beach which he has referred to as the "Winter White House" and most recently the "Southern White House" as in a recent tweet:

The speech he refers to is yet another rally held earlier this evening to give him the ignorant and irresponsible adoration that he craves. Trump is still doing victory laps while boasting about his election win, despite his historically low approval rating.

Not only are millions of dollars going to operate Air Force One and provide security for Trump himself, but his two sons also racked up expenses for which the American tax payer is on the hook. For example, the hotel bill for Secret Service agents guarding Eric Trump on a visit to Uruguay was nearly $90,000. The reason for the trip: to promote a Trump-branded condo tower.

During his eight years in office, Obama's travel expenses averaged $12.1 million a YEAR. At this rate, Trump is on target to rack up $140 million a year, a staggering 1,157% more.

As if this weren't bad enough, Trump's past tweets show his true hypocritical stripes:

Everyone knows about Trump's promise to make Mexico pay for his Wall of Babel. At his rally today, he also vowed to make the Arab oil states to pay for safe zones to keep would-be refugees in their own war-torn countries. Watch:

1. Who in they're right f'ing mind expected a guy who shits in a gold toilet to be "low cost".



But hey, I'm sure his base is sitting out on their upholstered porch furniture saying "but he's spending it for us".



We have so let the inmates take over the asylum.

2. Where are Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity?

Vacation outrage: Right slams Obama for Hawaii trip, ignoring the facts
01/04/13 03:55 PM—Updated 10/02/13 10:03 PM
By Morgan Whitaker

...Rush Limbaugh called the Hawaii trip a “slap in the face” to Republicans on his Thursday radio show. Fox’s Sean Hannity railed against the return too. “Our dedicated Commander in Chief has since returned to his wonderful vacation in Hawaii, once again showing us all that he simply does not have your best interests in mind,” he said this week.

Do those numbers include expenses for Uday and Qusay traveling around the world to enrich themselves at taxpayer's expense?

4. I added the "Make Trump's Tweets Eight Again" browser add-in last night

It makes me smile to see the childish hand in which every Trump tweet I see is now written.
