We will see the comparison soon, ALL OF IT NEEDS TO STOP! FUCK THEIR VACATIONS! IT"S OUR TAX MONEY!

When the Obama family took a winter trip to Aspen in February 2015, the four-day trip cost taxpayers nearly $122,000 for the first lady and her two daughters, according to open records requests filed by the group Judicial Watch.

The conservative, nonpartisan foundation based out of Washington, D.C., has been tracking the travel expenses of the Obamas as well as President Donald Trump.

According to documents obtained by Freedom of Information Act requests, the Obamas’ Valentine’s Day weekend trip to Aspen cost the Secret Service $64,807.41. That breakdown included $47,109.28 in hotel costs, mostly from agents staying at the Inn at Aspen at the base of Buttermilk; $3,559.43 for rental vehicles; and $14,138.70 in other travel expenses.

With the addition of $57,068.80 in flight costs (7.4 hours roundtrip for the Air Force), the trip added up to $121,876.21, according to Judicial Watch.

“The Obamas abuse taxpayers with unnecessarily luxurious vacations and travel,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement. “How many times did the Obama family travel to Aspen prior to the presidency? Misusing the perks of presidency to travel to luxury hot-spots is an abuse that must end. If Congress is looking to save tax dollars, they might consider trimming the platinum travel budgets of this and future presidents.”

The foundation says it is “actively tracking” the travel expenses of President Trump and has sued to get a number of travel expenses released for the president, Vice President Mike Pence and the Trump family. Earlier this month, Judicial Watch released records from the Air Force that showed Trump’s flights to Mar-a-Lago for two weekends (in February and March) cost $1.2 million.

Judicial Watch has sued the Secret Service, which has not responded to Freedom of Information Act requests for records for the cost of security and other services for the Trump family’s March 2017 trip to Aspen. The Trump children, Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr. — along with their spouses and children — spent nearly a week in Aspen this winter.

“The public controversy over President Trump’s travel will only increase if the Pentagon and Secret Service won’t disclose basic costs and other details as FOIA law requires,” Fitton said. “Extreme transparency should be the Trump administration’s ethic, especially after eight years of lawless Obama secrecy.”


Judicial Watch is as nonpartisan as Bill Barr.
Judicial Watch (JW) is an American conservative activist group[1] that files Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits to investigate claimed misconduct by government officials.

Founded in 1994, JW has primarily targeted Democrats, in particular the Presidency of Bill Clinton, the Presidency of Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. The organization has described climate science as "fraud science" and has filed lawsuits against government climate scientists. JW has made numerous false and unsubstantiated claims that have been picked up by right-wing news outlets. Courts have dismissed the vast majority of its lawsuits.[1]

Take this advice repulsians!

Bill Maher called out Donald Trump during the “New Rule” segment on HBO’s “Real Time” Friday night, comparing the presumptive GOP nominee to the perception that men had of women back in the 1950s.

“Donald Trump, who says if Hillary Clinton were a man she wouldn’t get 5 percent of the vote,” Maher said. “If Trump was a man he’d stop whining like a little bitch.”

No wonder! You listen to Bill Maher? Why haven't you figured that clown out by now?

Very silly. You are comparing a blind number provided by some website for Trump. You are taking that all as gospel. Then you are comparing some small fraction of costs for an Obama family trip. Its all meaningless bullshit. All presidents have cost millions to maintain in office and provide security for. I am sure you are now complaining about it because ...Trump. So what.


Obama’s Travel Cost Taxpayers More Than $96 Million

$96 mill travel in 8 years vs $115 mill just for golf in 3 years. And you can't see the difference.

This is the guy who lied right in your face when he told you he wouldn't golf, he'd be too busy working for you.

And you just keep swallowing.

All you have done so far is yap! You asked a question, we provided you with answers and links. You didn’t like the answers, so you moved the goalpost. Either you give a shit about reigning in spending or you don’t. It’s clear that you don’t.

Yeah right If I were to look for Trump golf trip costs all I would find is the same bullshit parroted by the usual suspect sources over and over guessing about the number. There will be no actual costs expressed on the internet only more "Get Trump" B.S.
