Mad King Trump golfs today, the bill is $133 million = 334 years worth of his presidential salary

Trump quotes Peter Baker quoting Emerson, as Trump golf trips are 250% of PBO’s at the same moment in their presidencies.

And because Trump insists on playing at courses he owns, the cost to taxpayers has been nearly four times as high as it was for Obama. More than two-thirds of Trump’s golf outings involve seven-figure trips aboard Air Force One, mainly to Florida and New Jersey, but also to Los Angeles, Ireland and Scotland. Obama, in contrast, played most of his golf on courses at military bases within a short drive of the White House.

What’s more, Trump’s insistence on playing at courses he owns and profits from has put at least a few million taxpayer dollars into Trump’s cash registers in the form of hotel room and restaurant charges for the White House staff and Secret Service agents who accompany him.

The Washington Post found recently that Trump’s business has charged the Secret Service as much as $650 a room per night at Mar-a-Lago ― more than three times the normal rate that federal employees are supposed to spend in South Florida ― and $17,000 a month for a cottage at Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey, resort. During an early Mar-a-Lago visit, White House employees ran up a $1,006 bar tab, which taxpayers also paid.

Lest you think that this is trivial, note that regal presumption (“unitary executive”) is at work in this bit of Article II rationalization for assassination. Autocrat’s Automat.

Well it’s obvious that trump would never read Emerson on his own. But he would make people think he has while quoting someone who has. Would be funny if someone would make up a quote and feed it to the moron.

All we have to do is make it to 2024, just 4+ more years.

Do what medicare does. look at the bill, see what other people are charged, if reasonable (which it won’t be)approve that and pay 80% of it. See if he has the balls to appeal it and if so deny it. Why is the emolument law not being applied? Someone needs to enforce the laws. Challenge them and if they fight let the public know how corrupt he and his apostles (specifically barr and his apostles) are.
AND BY THE WAY, WHERE ARE THE CHILDREN??????

Someone needs to leave ok at this. I think Adam is on it. They have stuff in the court they are waiting on. And boy spawns are probably off on some game preserve shooting tame lions or something.

Thank you for your reply. I was not very clear was I. The children I was asking about are the ones in cages or wherever he has tucked them. He has managed to divert our attention from the horrors he has brought down on the children. His kids are no doubt up to no good. I believe his daughter is in Saudi Arabia teaching the women how to be strong and doing some business on the side.

Sorry I see now what you mean. My reply had a typo in it. Something between my phone and internet. Old I phone. And yes why aren’t the politicians picking up on this. All some want to do is pick att the other rivals and they don’t say anything about trump. Hell they could go from now to general election and not run out of material on him. Why attack each other. Lay out your plan and show how it differs from trump and you will get votes.

Now that I believe. Has to be some reason that they all voted acquittal. The telling point is Susan Collins when she said it wasn’t like that on head on a pike. Obviously trump told them a vote against me and I will shit on your campaign. You don’t need a seeing eye dog to see that. Romney only one with a hint of a backbone and he talked to people of Utah and some didn’t like vote but praised him for making it. The rest need to wake up. 75% wanted witnesses.

She probably needs to make a payment on Jared’s loan. Little private meeting with the prince.

If he’s overcharging the govt., a new future attorney general could start an investigation on where all of the money went during the Trump years.

The big mistake was that Dems didn’t ‘t think or maybe they did and still want him to be impeached… Yes, they didn’t think that this king of the mod threatened everyone if they didn’t vote in his favor. EXAMPLE ALASKA need government money, a lot to fix old infrastructures in bad shape and form… the next day the senator of Alaska, after she voted in his favor (T45) she got 2O MILLION DOLLARS FOR ALASKA… I CALL THAT BLACKMAIL….
