No matter how much golf Obama played, it still does not compare to what Trump has played so far. Where is your Trump rage?

To me, this is an indictment on the media more than anything else. As US Yeah suggested, did any media organization investigate Obama's golf expenses when he was in office? Or an even better question: If Obama's secret service spent $137,505 to rent golf carts, would any media make a story out of it?

I think we all know the answers to these questions.

The point is that Trump has spend more government money on his private vacations than any other president.  Trump has spent nearly 25 percent of his days in office at one of his golf properties for some portion of the day. There have been days where Trump has visited one of his golf clubs and not played golf. He made a 40-minute visit to his Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., and he has made a three-day visit to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., to watch the 2017 US Women's Open, unfolding at that club. Trump spent a 17-day "working vacation" at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., in August, which meant all of those days count as days on his golf courses, even though he didn't necessarily play golf on all of those days.

There's the quantity of time off.

There's the hypocrisy after his extensive complaints about Obama's golfing.

There's the broken campaign promise - he'd never play golf because he wouldn't have TIME.

And there's the self-dealing - I'm quite sure that the secret service cart rentals fatten the profits of Trump himself, being the owner and all.

But none of that matters one bit, because Clinton Derangement Syndrome.

The Secret Service has spent at least $137,505 to rent golf carts to protect President Trump this year at his private clubs in New Jersey and Florida.

According to federal purchase orders flagged by the progressive PAC American Bridge and reviewed by USA TODAY, the agency paid $61,960 in a Sept. 29 contract to rent golf carts at the Trump International Golf Club in Florida.

That's the biggest purchase order for golf carts so far. It comes in a contract that will extend through May 28, 2018. The agency signed contracts for golf carts at Trump's clubs as early as February, but they never exceeded about $18,000 – and only lasted for one month at a time.

Report: 8 years of Obama vacations cost $85 million

WASHINGTON
As America’s first family enjoys its eighth and final vacation in Hawaii, new estimates put the price tag of the Obamas’ annual trip at $3.5 million or more.
In total, the cost of the the first family’s personal or largely personal travel during the last eight years comes to $85 million – though that is likely to climb to $90 million after additional records are released, according to the conservative group Judicial Watch based on federal government records.
The cost of Air Force One and other government planes as well as helicopters, cargo planes, armored cars, Secret Service protection and advance, communications and medical staff has led Judicial Watch to push for less personal travel.

The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said. “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”

President-elect Donald Trump prefers to vacation at his own properties. He is spending Christmas at Mar-A-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, where he stayed for Thanksgiving. After the election, he spent a weekend at Bedminster golf club in New Jersey, which has fueled speculation that it could be Trump’s Camp David.

I find that hard to believe that Trump will spend more than Obama. Trump is getting things done, and is working hard to get more things done. He has to fight not only the socialist democrat party, but the RINO Republican Party too. I am watching. I feel like there will be a lot of new republican congressmen and senators after the next elections. We the people are going to fire their RINO asses.
