    Default Trump* in town again... Golfing yesterday and today.

    Trump said when he was president he would not have time for golf, he attacked Obama for golfing.

    HE arrived last night on Air Force 1, with his staff and secret service.

    Every time he comes to town, Trump makes $$$ off of you taxpayers, as he charges his staff and the Secret Service full rate to stay at his resort, rent his golf carts, and eat at his restaurant.

    Remember when you Rumppers attacked Obama for playing golf? Trump* has played more golf in three years than Obama did in eight, and Obama played on military bases to keep the costs down, dump plays only at his own course to keep the cost up.

    A friend of mine was 25 min's late for lunch yesterday, because Trump's motorcade took up all of interstate 95 so impeached Trump* could get to his north county golf course, he passed about 20 other courses on the way to HIS course.

    Any peach trees near the golf course?

    If he hit his ball into one it could be impeached.

    Or it could have nothing to do with race and simply be good old fashion partisanship. Like many things in politics, it's ok when my guy does it but not when someone I don't like does.

    $100k plate fundraising dinner at Mar A Lago SAT. 100 'plates'. Take for the night $10,000,000. Regaled his donors with SOLEMANI takedown. (Appears he EMBELLISHED, duh!!) No imminent attack MENTIONs, by the way. Seems that SOME might have considered that important even to $100k donors. Guess not.
    “ ‘Sir, they have two minutes and 11 seconds.’ No emotion. ‘Two minutes and
    11 seconds to live, sir. They’re in the car, they’re in an armored vehicle. Sir, they have approximately
    one minute to live, sir. Thirty seconds. Ten, 9, 8 . . . ’ Then all of a sudden, boom.”

    President Trump delivered a dramatic account of the airstrike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, joked that he doesn’t care if construction projects kill all the rattlesnakes and noted his indifference to the budget during a private dinner with deep-pocketed donors Friday night at Mar-a-Lago, according to audio files obtained by The Washington Post.

    Trump, his tone subdued and conversational, explained his motivation for attacking Soleimani and recounted listening to an anonymous military official countdown to the Jan. 3 strike.

    The president said nothing about an “imminent attack” on U.S. interests or threats to four U.S. embassies as he previously has to justify the unilateral military strike that escalated tensions in the region and opened debate on presidential war powers.


    Instead, he spoke broadly about Soleimani as “the father of the roadside bomb” responsible for “every young, beautiful man or woman who you see walking around with no legs, no arms.” Trump said he heard about two weeks ago that the United States had Soleimani under surveillance and he was “talking about bad stuff.”

    Yeah, that's pretty much Republicans who act like that.

    Democrats supported tossing Al Franken because Democrats have morals.

    What Trump did as shown on the Access Hollywood video was worse than what Al Franken did.

    If Al Franken had been caught in a video like Trump, Al would have resigned under pressure from his own party.

    Trump insulted people in his own party and claimed his atrocious behavior was just 'locker room talk.' Then he refused to drop out in shame like he should have if he had any decency in him. Which he does not.

    Nah. It's about a bullying corrupt braggart and his hypocrisy, which is shared amongst his followers.

    Exactly. Good post. Now let us prepare for the inevitable rebuttal of "Yeah but the economy..."

    Dude just stop. Stop with this idea that your party is a paradigm of virtue. Stop with this my party isn't partisan stuff.

    Political party's exist to win elections. Stop putting yours on a pedestal trying to make it represent something it doesn't.

    Yes. Trump is a hypocrite as are many of the people who support him. You think Democrats aren't? You think you and liberals aren't hypocrites or partisans?

    Of course not, TRUMP is 'allowed'. Trump is special. Trump is a 'white' guy.

    For the UNINFORMED and belligerently ignorant here, OBAMA played at Andrews (Andrews AF base right down the Potomac in MD) and also the Army/Navy 'CLUB' (?? forgot name) somewhere in N. Virginia. The 2 courses he played most often. BOTH were at most a 15 - 20 min. helicopter ride.

    Trump takes AF 1 to all his golf outings at HIS courses.

    I'm sure that some of us are. It's part of being human. However, we do not celebrate corruption, filth, and vile behaviors like your side does. As PoliTalker correctly pointed out, Franken -- even though he was clowning around and being stupid and did not actually assault the woman in the infamous photograph -- was pressured to leave. And quickly too. If he'd been Republican, he'd still be there.

    Here's where you can drag Bill out of the closet and dust him off. lol
