While on the campaign trail, Donald Trump whined and moaned about President Obama’s vacations.
Take for example this tweet from 2011:
In June of 2015, Trump said, “I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done. I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off.” He added, “Yes, I would live in the White House because it’s the appropriate thing to do. I would work. And I would make the country great again. That’s what you have to do.”
Isn’t it strange and hypocritical, then, that Trump has spent weekend after weekend golfing at Mar-A-Lago? Indeed, Trump is on pace to outspend Obama’s budget for travel, over the latter’s entire presidency, in hist first year in office.
Make America Great Again? How, exactly? Golfing its way to greatness?
It’s Tuesday, the 18th of April, 2017. It’s not a normal day.
