Did you know that  according to Secret Service Director, Randolph Alles , President Trump has traveled so frequently to his properties in Florida, Virginia and New Jersey and his adult children have made so many business trips and/or taken vacations to so many different destinations around the world, that the Secret Service has exhausted the funds reserved to pay for the agents that are needed to protect them (in their travels) by law?

In fact, unless Congress provides more funding,  agents will not be able to receive pay for work they have already done. Over 1,000 agents have reached the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime that were meant to last the entire year!

And President Trump, the candidate who promised that he would be too busy working as POTUS to ever have time to go anywhere, is now on pace, in just his first year of his presidency,  to surpass former President Barack Obama’s spending on travel for his entire eight years.

I have not written much on this blog lately about our president and his administration, partly because of a general malaise on my part and partly because of a growing  weariness as to the constant Republican chants of “Who cares?” and “Give him a chance!” or “He’s better than Obama.”

But now, after 6 months in office Republicans need to explain why this President Trump is so much different, and so much better than any other ordinary, typical, run-of-the-mill  politician, when he is so obviously (made evident by his own words and deeds) so many times more worse than any president, politician or human being that has ever held this great office?!

What did you Republicans hate so much about President Obama and his family’s travel expenses that you now love to the tune of 8 times more when President Trump and his family spend your tax dollars? What kind of uncontrollable cultish hard-on do you have for this man and his ideology? And why? And how did you manage to get it…was it love at first sight? And when the cool-aid is finally served will you drink it down with gusto, reverence and in total fealty to the man…or will he have to deliver you your tax break and Nazi arm band first?

    It’s the fault of those who blindly support someone who does not deserve it.

    Ah, I fear that the real problem is merely skin deep. Unfortunately, the ugly that that exposes, goes deep to the bone.

    Trump.. is what he is no more no less, but you have to think. Consider the alternatives that the nation was presented with at the time of his winning. I don’t know what your beliefs are but God made this country great. It has long been time we had a leader that knew that and had the cojones to publicly say so. FOLLOW ME. So he is human just as you and I, nobody is perfect minus God. The tides will change again, best to believe that everything IS WHAT IT IS. Instead of disrespecting our president how about… Peace.

      … Standing behind him giving him the support that an American truly deserves. Who cares if he does not eat the same peanut butter as you or chooses to fly kites instead of rollerskate. It is our differences that make us American. United we stand, divided we fall. It has long since been time for us to throw off the good-ol’ racial divide and pick up the flag that millions of people of died for.

        “Good-ol’ racial divide”????? Did the confederates fight for our country’s flag?

      Wow! Are you seriously going to tell me that you weren’t one of the “Lock her Up!” people? Did you spread peace and love when President Obama was in office or did you spend your time praying to God that he would somehow be relieved of his duties? DO UNTO OTHERS…If you have done that and do that, then good for you. Insulting women and religions and those whom you don’t like or who don’t agree with you is not the way to be Presidential.

    I must apologize gpicone, I try not to delve deeper than my ankles when it comes 2 politics. Of course this was one of the times I “flew my coop”. After my accident I remembered nothing.
    What occurred while Obama was in office is no longer in my banks but I will tell you whatever was, it wasn’t politics. My way of getting at it is by focusing on the beginning and end. Alpha and Omega.
