Update: 4:30 PM. I published this post originally with an estimated cost of $3M/golf outing which was too high. I have removed this verbiage and associated math as I do not want to be the purveyor of bad information.
The Trump Golf Count website estimates the total cost to taxpayers currently as $88M.
And I stand by the comment that this is still the Driving for Dollars Administration.
Historically, this date is Presidents Day. So Happy Presidents Day!
For the current resident of the “most expensive unit of public housing”¹, this is Prescedense Day!
By my definition, Prescedense: an elected chief of state lacking intelligence or common sense whose subsequent actions lower the bar for the standard of comportment expected of the office of President of the United States (POTUS).
In light of the recent declaration of a state of emergency followed up by a weekend trip to Mar a Lago, we would like to honor the Trump Regime as the Driving for Dollars Administration.
“Driving for dollars” can be applied to various and sundry careers which warrant reimbursement for mileage gained in the course of doing a job. About $0.40/mile was the going rate when last I claimed mileage … oh well.
With this administration though, “driving” applies to golf. Since he began to warm his buttocks in the big chair, Prescedense Trump has taken ~159 golfing expeditions.
Driving for your dollars. In honor of past Presidents, let’s reclaim Presidents Day! Call your representatives and senators to either impeach or invoke the 25th Amendment on this the Driving For Dollars Administration:
202.224.3121 (general switchboard operator)
For reference, a short list of Prescedense tRump’s recent actions:
- Attack of the free press on Twitter
- Threat to national security especially in his use of Twitter
- Refusal to divest of business interests while in office & violation of emoluments clause (see above, his business gains a % every time he drives)
- Declaration of a “national emergency” for funding a wall
- Destruction of established international relationships with allies
- Agent provocateur of Putin/Russia
- Habitual incessant lying
It’s a long list … enough of the Driving for Dollars Administration!
