1. It's an evergreen.

You see the president. He's not in the WH, so he's not obligatorily working. (Like you can't have a kip in the Oval Office or skyve in your personal quarters.)

You even see a picture of him engaging in some leisure activity. Out with wife. Swinging his club and trying to make a hole in one. Whatever.

You have to decide if this is a good thing.

You check to see his political party.

You check your own political party.

If they agree, then he's obviously entitled to a little rest--and really, given the interconnected age in which we live and the demands of the job, he's always on duty. The WH follows him, with phones and aides and computers.

If they don't agree, then he's obviously loafing and wasting taxpayer dollars. Not that this is a bad thing, because otherwise he's busy undermining fundamental American values like your own.

Bush II was always on vacation, and loafing. Obama, well, he was "on vacation" (wink-wink, nudge-nudge) but while a *real* vacation would be well deserved, in fact his "vacation" consisted of an additional 30 seconds in the shower followed by 20 minutes on the putting green. Otherwise, wherever he was, whoever was with him, he was the man on the job because it's a job that follows you everywhere. Trump, on the other hand, he's always on vacation and loafing.

I saw the same discussion with Reagan/Bush I, then Clinton, then Bush II, then Obama, now Trump. It's all bleating. If a (D) wins in 2020, of course there's no "real" vacation for the president; if a (R) wins, of course when he's not actively in a meeting he's goofing off (to the Republic's great relief).

4. I don't think anyone is against

A president taking vacation. Everybody needs vacation. But it's particularly hypocritical right now considering how much Trump harped on Obama's vacations, said that he would be too busy to ever take vacations, and has been on vacation for three times how much Obama was at this point in their respective terms.

11. He goes to his private quarters at 6:00 p.m. and watches TV. Even in the WH

he is mostly not working.

The most anybody has ever done on vacation. Ever. Believe me!

8. *snort*



He's such a lazy fuck. He doesn't even do any work when he's NOT on vacation. It's insulting that he thinks we would believe that he's actually working while on vacation.

7. I believe it's not a vacation

All that fat bastard has done since he's been in the White House is play golf at one of his own courses, gouge the government, tweet and try to get Obamacare repealed.

He's at his own course playing, gouging, tweeting and repeal-trying. Nope. Not a vacation at all. Just a little offsite work, that's all.
