Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 11, 2019

President Donald Trump's military-style July Fourth parade drained a special Washington, D.C., city fund designed to help pay for extra security and anti-terrorism measures during large events in the nation's capital, the mayor said in a letter to the White House.

Trump should do the right thing and reimburse DC out of his campaign coffers

We have several more patriotic holidays before November, 2020, in which Trump will conflate himself with patriotism.

I'm 100% positive a lot of DR Lefters are going to fall for this crap and it's just a shame. If a Dem says something and it gets put in the media, the Lefters immediately flock to it like it's written in stone. Liberals love to say they don't have religion but the way they treat their party leaders is pretty much the same as how bible thumpers treat what is written in the Bible. Try researching all the extravagant costs of Obama...and then do some actual self reflection on why government spending all of a sudden is a big deal only when your hate is showing...just like illegal immigration.

Considering the millions that showed up for the July 4 super-spectacular salute to sleaze, I understand the mayor's problem...

If you're aware of some of obama's "extravagant costs" maybe you could educate us about them. Or at least provide links so we can laugh at the places you get your "news."

Trump's toy tank parade cost this country millions and disrupted travel for thousands. And what did we get for it? NOTHING.

That is the definition of wasting money. The only better way would be just lighting cash on fire.

Did some research. What I find is that Trump has already burned through >$100 million in taxpayer money on his vacations. For comparison, Obama spent just $96 million on vacations for the 8 years he was in office.

www.forbes.com

Extrapolating that, it seems that Trump is burning through taxpayer money at FOUR TIMES the rate that Obama did.

And the only reason that Liberals are so fixated on this is because TRUMP HIMSELF said/tweeted many times criticizing Obama for how much time he spent on vacation and how much taxpayer money was going towards funding them. It is called hypocrisy. You should know what it is because you embody it.

So, maybe you should "Try researching all the extravagant costs of Obama Trump...and then do some actual self reflection on why government spending all of a sudden is was a big deal only when your hate is showing".

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
Obama is on yet another two-day West Coast fundraising swing. Has to fit it in before his 15 day tax-payer funded vacation.

"I would rarely leave the White House because there's so much work to be done," Trump, 69, tells ITK. "I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off."
"You don't have time to take time off," Trump adds.

And maybe think a bit about why you elect and supported a guy who embodies the "hate" that you are complaining about.

Video montage of Trump saying - over and over - he wouldn't have time to play golf or take vacations. And criticizing Obama for playing golf. No time to leave the WH he'll be so busy working:

In addition to vacations, golf, and hours of 'executive time' spent every day watching Fox News and calling pundits before he starts 'work.'

Do your research!!

The rallying cry of the uninformed.

I'll bite, since you imply you've done yours, how much exactly did Obama's 4th of July soiree in the White House cost, where he addressed several dozen servicemen and women?

"This was not a campaign rally"

Said the fake Sanders supporter. No, he avoided that but you left out the rest, you know, what Sanders actually had to say about it:

"This is what authoritarians do: @realDonaldTrump is taking $2.5 million away from our National Park Service to glorify himself with a spectacle of military tanks rolling through Washington" .

Are you so ashamed of your support of Trump you have to fake being a progressive? Pretty sad.

Humtake looks like a fool for that comment in #4. The costs are out there for anybody to see, and it has been well documented that trump is blowing past any and all past presidents for the cost of his vacation. Maybe YOU should try researching a little before posting such drivel here.

Not to fear.

After the world saw our military parade, they wouldn't dare attack us.

Good Job Trump! Bankrupting America, one day at a time.
