COUNTDOWN: I am infuriated to state that there are still 1,221 days left in the Liar-in-chief’s term in office…
Among the literally thousands of lies President Donald Chump has told this nation was that he would hardly ever, or never, go on vacation. Back in 2015, then-candidate Donald Chump told The Hill that he would not be the type of President to take time off for vacations, later adding that “there is just so much to be done…so I don’t think we’ll be big on vacations, no” in a 60 Minutes interview done on Nov. 13, 2016.
Indeed, this pompous liar had the gall to criticize his predecessor for having taken far too many vacations and spending too much time playing golf rather than tending to his job as President. Of course, those who know the truth are fully aware that Barack Obama rarely went on vacation, and did so FAR less than HIS predecessor, George W. Bush. It seemed at times as though Bush was constantly down at his “ranch” in Crawford, TX. This, of course, Chump chooses to deliberately ignore, as he has hated Obama ever since Obama deservedly made fun of him during a 2011 White House Correspondents’ dinner. Chump has repeatedly referred to Obama as a “habitual vacationer.” Prior to his election, the Liar-in-chief even tweeted, “Don’t take vacations. What’s the point? If you’re not enjoying your work, you’re in the wrong job.”
Well, it is easy for anyone who is rational to see that Chump himself is “in the wrong job” and is not “enjoying” HIS work, and has conveniently chosen to project HIS laziness and failure to properly measure up to the tasks at hand onto Obama. So it always is among these wacko, self-centered narcissists. CBS News White House reporter Mark Knoller has kept track of presidential vacations for many years now, and his findings indicate that Chump is well on his way to smashing and shattering the all-time mark of presidential vacation time over the past century. Knoller has kept very accurate records of past presidents’ time off, and has found that Chump is waaayyy ahead of his predecessors, and that his allegations against Obama were just another Chump LIE.
It would certainly appear that Chump has become the “Golfer-in-chief” rather than our Chief Executive. He got back recently from a 17 day golfing outing at his Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey, and has spent numerous weekends at his Mar-a-Lago golf course in Florida. He has even visited Camp David twice for 2 days each time. All told, this joker has spent a total of at least 49 days away from the White House on various so-called “working vacations.” Pro-rated, this is FAR more than most of his recent predecessors!
When Obama had been in office for the same time as Chump, he had only spent 4 days in Chicago and 17 days at Camp David. In total, Obama spent only all or part of 235 days away from the White House on vacations over two terms totaling eight years. He also spent all or part of another 93 days on working trips to Camp David. That amounts to a mere 328 days. Before Obama, “W” had spent 39 days at Camp David and another 39 at his “ranch” in Crawford, plus one visit totaling 4 days to the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, ME. W’s total vacation time, also spread out over two terms and eight years, tallied up to 1,020 days, making him one of the laziest Presidents of modern times.
Isn’t it interesting to note that Chump, who touts himself as a successful businessman, declared bankruptcy NUMEROUS times, and W, who regarded himself as the business president, was, in reality, a FAILED businessman? So much for the credibility of our two most recent Republican Presidents! BOTH were sons of privilege; BOTH took loads of vacation time; and BOTH have been massive liars!
It would be proper to look even further back at the vacation days taken by the previous four Presidents dating back to Jimmy Carter, from 1977 onward.
– Democratic President Bill Clinton spent 345 days away from the White House during his eight years in office.
– Republican President George H. W. Bush was away 543 days during his single four year term in office. Hmmm – like father, like son, perhaps?
– Republican President Ronald Reagan was away from Washington om vacation only 335 days during his eight year presidency.
– Democratic President Jimmy Carter took only 79 days of vacation time during his single four year term at the helm.
So there you have it, my friends. Once again, for the umpteenth time, Donald Chump has been clearly demonstrated to be an irresponsible and reckless pathological liar. The FACT of the matter is that Donald Chump, the President who said he would not go on vacations, has already exhausted Secret Service funds allocated for his protection due to his very frequent getaways! And the S.O.B. hasn’t even completed one term in office yet! We taxpayers are NOT getting our money’s worth out of this pompous, big-mouthed buffoon! Donald Chump must be sent on a permanent vacation! The earliest opportunity we can grab to kick his sorry ass out of office, the better! We can and MUST send him a giant wake-up call in the 2018 midterm elections by booting his miserably bought-out and corpoeatist CON-servative Republican Party out of power, and keeping them out of control for at least the next two decades! After all, why should we, as members of the 99% MAHORITY, allow these greedy and uncaring members of the uppermost 1% MINORITY to continually slit our throats economically? 😦
