The most ridiculous, thin-skinned, unqualified, incompetent person in the history of this country is currently occupying the White House. Lack of qualifications aside, he’s easily the laziest president in modern history, having racked up the most vacation time of anyone to hold the office in recent administrations and it isn’t even close. Here’s a graphic to help you visualize just how much vacation he has taken and please note, Democratic presidents work their tails off for you.
After taking quadruple the number of vacation days as Barack Obama, it’s hard to believe Trump is the same guy who spoon fed his gullible voters this line of malarkey on the campaign trail:
“I have the greatest stuff and you know what? I love golf. But if I were in the White House, I don’t think I’d ever see Turnberry again. I don’t think I’d ever see Doral again. I own Doral in Miami. I don’t think I’d ever see many of the places I have. I don’t think I’d ever see anything, I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off and make great deals, right? Who’s gonna leave?”
Trump. That’s who’s gonna leave. He’s gonna leave 87 times and counting in one year, just to play golf. That doesn’t include the other vacation time he’s taken to Mar-A-Lago and elsewhere.
On Christmas day, he tweeted that he would be “getting back to work!” the very next day.
Unfortunately, his staff isn’t even honest about when he is playing golf, leaving his schedule blank and at other times, flat-out lying to the public, saying he is headed to one of the clubs that he owns for meetings, only later to be outed on social media by paying members of the club who’ve seen him in golf cleats in the clubhouse. So, yesterday, CNN captured a brief glimpse of Trump playing golf. And today? Trump must’ve been angered by the video because today they went next level, having a box truck move in parallel with Trump along the course so that NO photos or videos of Trump playing golf, not working, would be seen. So, who is paying for this and why? Are tax dollars being spent to prevent the public from even a glimpse of Donald Trump on vacation, again? The Secret Service says they did not commission the truck. Watch CNN’s reporter describe what happened:
US Secret Service spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan says that this truck that tried blocking @CNN from recording President Trump golfing was not commissioned by the Secret Service. So my question is, why did the secret service allow a box truck this close to Trump while he was golfing? pic.twitter.com/BHTSFZ6lRJ

If there was no security purpose, why? As that reporter notes, if anything, seems like a huge security risk. Is Trump so thin-skinned that he ordered these videos and photos stopped by any means necessary because he thinks the images were unflattering? Here’s the original video. You decide.

Even today, they refused to be honest about the fact that Donald Trump was again playing golf.
