Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 15, 2018

President Donald Trump appears poised to ignore his own calls for Americans to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day with "acts of civic work and community service." Trump is not scheduled to partake in any service projects on the federal holiday he and every other US president have designated as a "day of service" since 1994. Instead, he arrived Monday morning at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. ... A White House spokeswoman did not return a request for comment on whether Trump had any impromptu plans to take part in a community service project. The first lady's office also did not return a request for comment asking whether Melania Trump had any such plans.

The last three presidents have often taken part in service projects to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In 2001, President Bill Clinton joined AmeriCorps members to help repair and paint a senior center in Washington. In 2007, President George W. Bush joined volunteers at a local high school who were sending postcards to victims of Hurricane Katrina. For the last Martin Luther King Jr. Day of his presidency, President Barack Obama helped students at a local elementary school build planters and plant vegetables for an "MLK Garden" at the school.

It's not a public service to aerate the fairways?

Public Service is not a concept Trump understands.
But he does understand that we are lucky to have him as President.
That's his public service. Being our leader.

Donald could do America a public service if he'd just stay off of Twitter for a day.

It's not a surprise.

Just exhibit 2,398,651 in Trump being a flagrant tool bag who should be shunned and driven from office.

As we recall from the election campaign, the orange douche nozzle thought he had done public service by building great structures, and escaping venereal disease was his Vietnam. So it makes sense that DOTUS believes enriching himself by playing golf at one of his golf courses is public service.

Just like he has no idea that the "Dreamers" are the DACA kids, he also is too stupid to understand the definition of public service.

Well at least not while on the golf course. But then again he does have his staff use a panel truck to block the view of reporters catching him "working".

Rump's supporters don't care. The nicest thing most of them ever did for a person of color in this country was leave another $0.25 tip at the Waffle House on Xmas Day...
