Secret Service Goes Broke

August 21, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Remember when Trump said there would be no time for vacations or golf?  Remember when he said he would never leave the White House because he would be so busy making America great again?  Devotees cheered him.  The rest of us knew better, and we were correct.

This morning, USA Today published an interview with director of the Secret Service, “Tex” Alles who told the paper that the service has already run through its annual budget and his agents have hit their annual compensation cap.  Trump’s extravagant lifestyle, which includes travel to one of his properties virtually every weekend, has driven the agency to its knees.  Veteran agents are quitting, and there’s no money left for them to get paid.  According to federal law, the president’s family must be protected which includes 42 members.

Some estimates have Trump’s travel so far at $55 million since January.  By contrast, the Obama’s spent $97 million OVER 8 YEARS or about $12 million per year.  At Trump’s current pace of blowing taxpayer money so he can chase a little white ball will total over $94 million PER YEAR.

Trump is making America great again by spending faster than any president since GWB, and I never dreamed that would be possible.

A New Record

August 11, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Trump hit a new milestone yesterday, which is still climbing at a rapid pace – he’s now spent 50 days on vacation at his golf resorts in 202 days of infesting the White House.  That’s 25% of his time playing golf and hanging out with sycophants. Let’s compare the vacation records of recent presidents:

Barack Obama – 217 vacation days – 7%

George W. Bush – 553 vacation days – 19%

So – The Tweeter in Chief who now holds the record for percent of time on vacation since they started keeping track relentlessly hounded President Obama about golf and vacations while lying that he would never have time for golf.  He’s now on record pace as the laziest president in US history as well as the biggest liar.

For the record, the next closest to Trump for vacation time was FDR at 22%.  Of course, that was 7 decades ago when travel wasn’t so easy.

 

Because He Has More Secrets Than A Parish Priest

Okay, so Donald Trump got himself worked into a raging lather of sassy this weekend and announced in the Financial Times (sorry, subscription only so you’ll just have to trust me) that he has a plan for North Korea.

He says that during the upcoming Great China Golf Tournament and Talks About Trump Investments, he will ….

“Yes, we will talk about North Korea. And China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t. And if they do that will be very good for China, and if they don’t it won’t be good for anyone.”

That’s a lot of little words meaning, “North Korea will be a subject for discussion.”

Then with a little twinkle in his eye, he added …

Well, if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will. That is all I am telling you.

Somehow, that doesn’t make me feel better.
