Trump’s Golfing Costs Taxpayers $102 Million And Counting

Trump’s Golfing Costs Taxpayers $102 Million And Counting:  A new report indicates Donald Trump’s golfing habits have already cost taxpayers $102 million - and next month he’s scheduled to run up a whopping seven-figure presidential visit to Ireland, just so he can play at his own personal golf course there.

Is it just me, or is does it seem a little odd we’ve spent more on Donald Trump’s golfing excursions in the past two years than most top pro golfers will ever make in their entire careers?  Not to mention that most of Trump’s golfing is at Trump golf courses, with everyone in his entourage staying in Trump hotels - so most of the money spent - ends up in Trump pockets.  Gee, sounds like a pretty good gig - if you can it. 

So let’s see, we taxpayers have spent $102 million so far on Trump’s golfing, which is roughly 255 times the annual Presidential salary Trump volunteered not to take - and three times the cost of Robert Mueller’s investigation - a cost Trump endlessly complains about.  And that’s just for Trump’s golfing.  It doesn’t even include all those pep rallies he’s been holding - which began just months after he took office.     

Of course, what the hell does Trump care how much it all costs?  He doesn’t pay any taxes.  Besides, he can always get some of that money back by making even deeper cuts to programs like the Special Olympics, Medicare and Social Security.  You know - those damn “entitlement programs.”  I mean, why waste a bunch of money on freeloaders?

Your point about the salary as a contribution being vastly overwritten by golf expenses is a good one.

Thanks Kosh!  Every single day - its something else with this guy.  And his cult members will ignore it all as usual and continue to defend him till the end.

Had there been golf pros in France during late 18thCE they'd likely have been first on the chopping block. I would have been in the crowd cheering the celebration.

Let's correct your typically misleading articles, Johnny. While Obama spent record time on the golf course even interfering with important nation's business even taking his huge entourage to places like Hawaii as well he snuck off Air Force One for a weekend with Tiger Woods in Florida! Trump's golfing in Ireland was part of a diplomatic visit as the Irish, English, and Scottish are all into golf! Furthermore, Trump owns his own golf courses so where's the expense to the taxpayer expense other than the routine Secret Service protection? Get off it Dude!

Let us go back in time when Obama had to be forcibly removed and brought to the Situation Room in the White House to witness the covert operation against the Bin Laden compound! We know now that President Obama was using taxpayer funds diverted to Muslim causes affiliated with terrorist groups so it makes sense doesn't it?

Kosher as usual your two cents amounts to nothing.

“Forcibly removed?” Where did you read that? And what Muslim causes affiliated with terrorist groups do you have in mind? Obama spent far more time working and far less on leisure than Trump has. You think Trump’s visits to his golf courses were caused by diplomatic concerns? You don’t pay much attention to this President, do you? I suppose when he golfs at Mar-a-lago that he golfs with the Floridian ambassador to the United States.

That's the hypocrisy I'm referring to by Trump cult members like you Doc.  Trump has spent three times as much on golf in just two years, that Obama spent in all eight years.  As for my point about him staying at his facilities, that's the issue.  Those hotels aren't offering their accommodations for free!  The taxpayers pay for that, including millions for security and staff.  And it all goes right into Trump's pockets.  The same with when he was staying at Trump Tower in New York.  He was charging the Secret Service for the space they took up.   With regard to Trump being forcibly made to watch the Bin Laden operation, that's all just bullshot lies put out by the conspiracy theorists such as Alex Jones and the sad thing is - people like Doc actually believe this stuff.  They're NEVER exposed to the REAL world.

Okay you stupid fuckers lets get down to it! Who made a weekend get away to Florida on Air Force One to play golf with Tiger Woods? OBAMA! Who accused Obama of being a untalented hack? Michael Jordan! Who spent White House time parading in the streets ordering hamburgers at local joints for his need to be adulated by his faulty college aged fans? Obama! This happened during the day when Obama should have been working and taking care of the people's business, but nope as usual he was out chasing kudos from his young indoctrinated fans! Who flew with the US entourage to Hawaii for golf trips? Obama of course! Who couldn't get up in time at 8:30 in the morning for CIA intelligence reports and didn't give a fuck either? Obama! 

President Trump only needs 4 hours sleep and starts his day at 6 AM to begin the work for the people! 

In comparison to the work ethic of Trump Obama got going around 10 AM had lunch for 2 hours with Biden and then looked to campaign in the evenings for whatever leftist anti-American rally! 

You know Johnny you people suck and I'll tell you why, When Obama was busy fucking America with his low employment numbers his low economic reports and high levels of welfare and food stamp participation who chicken shits would tell me, "Hey I didn't vote for Obama!" "Hey, I'm not defending Obama!" yet when trump got elected you two faced chicken shits come out in groves attacking Trump in just 2 years beat Obama's employment numbers, lowered taxes, GDP anywhere from 4.3% to 3.2% stopped Iran and North Korea from attacking America, while Obama made the worst nuke deal in history and gave Iran 150 billion with interest as they work their centrifuges for more fissionable material! You people fucking suck with your lies, your fake media articles that lie about actual events and you display your loyalty to our enemies in obvious light! It is almost comical but in truth it is tragic that you can be this indoctrinated! Putin would be proud of you as his puppets! Brainless, incapable of critical thought, and self assuredly mistaken thanks to your successfully demented view points! As they said about Rome. They could never be taken by foreign enemies they had to be compromised from within and you brain dead lab monkeys clearly exhibit that crippled mindset of the unpatriotic fools who blather on! Some day you will burn in hell for the lies you have injected into the arena of your own country and as Yuri Bezmenov once said, " it is the useful idiots who will be liquidated first!" I wish that for you!

Doc, I think you need to calm down my friend.  You're gonna have a stroke.
