Trump taking a 17-day vacation. What!?!

Donald Trump is going on a 17-day vacation. Who cares? Except... - CNNPolitics

So in his campaign, Trump blasted Obama for taking vacations. Trump said he will never take a vacation while POTUS.

Trump blasted Obama for golfing while saying he will not golf as much. And Trump now said he is going to do the same thing.

Is Bellevue hospital close to where Trump's Country Club is?

Geez, did he tell some more lies?? One lie after another, each and every frigging day.

Amen to that, pal. Maybe he can take a long vacation to the 37th parallel in Asia.

So Trump things it was wrong that Obama took long vacations and played golf a lot, but it is okay for him to do it. A double-standard, right?

I wonder how much lower his popularity will sag?

Seems you, and CNN forgot to mention that it's a 17 day "working" vacation. Is an important "omission" a lie?

Actually he did not. You may not have liked what he did during those 8 years but he was working....which is more than we can say for Herr Dumpster.

In fact Trump is on pace to spend MORE on recreational travel in his first year than Obama spent in his first term.

All of this AFTER saying in a speech (2016) that if he was elected he wouldn't have time to golf.

If you think Trump spends "more" on the trips he takes...tell us how? Does he pay to stay in his own properties? Does he take one plane, while his wife takes another to travel to the same destination?

Also, If Congress takes August vacation, what is going to be happening in DC, that the President cannot take care of, where ever he is?
Basically the WH travels with the President, where ever he goes. Do members of congress take their staffs with them, as they go home to....not work but campaign?

The cost of the lodging is tiny compared to the cost of taking the Secret Service along (required) and using Air Force One (required) to get there.

I agree that the President can take care of anything wherever he is (a point I made when people complained that Obama spent too much time away from the White House).

My complaint isn't necessarily the cost but the hypocrisy. Trump railed and railed and RAILED against Obama for all the time he "took off" and his supporters ate it up hook, line and sinker.

NOW that Trump is President he is on track to spend FAR more time away from the White House and his supporters don't say squat. It's the hypocrisy that galls me.

And those times that Obama took vacations, those WEREN'T "working vacations"?

The fact is that ANY vacation a President takes is a "working vacation".
