DoubleBlind says... August 22, 2017 at 5:09 a.m.

Trump repeatedly criticized Obama for costs related to security yet he already broken the bank in 7 months. Not to mention, he's also profiting from it. There numerous articles on this subject which state he has charged Secret Service $60K so far to rent golf carts when at Mar a Lago. Sounds like a clear cut violation of the emoluments clause. 42 people with full time security?! I hope everyone realizes we are all footing these bills.

Yes, Doubleblind, exactly right.

Trump is a hypocrite. The right wing base which was making the welkin ring with their nonstop outrage over the cost of the very reasonable amount of Obama travel are hypocrites.

In other breaking news, the sun came up in the East.

Maybe it's time Trump foot some of his own security coats. I know that's what a right winger would say if it were a wealthy Democrat. Amazing how they criticized Obama, but turn their heads when it's Trump.
