    Also, I recall right wingers bitching throughout Obama's two terms about the cost of security for him and his family. It is the epitome of hypocrisy.

    Right wingers have yet to explain why this is OK for Trump, but no one else. I'm sick of right wingers. I really have had it with them.

How dare Melania want Barron to finish the current year in his current school. Want to hear the real funny part? Listen close butt hurt liberals, Trump has four more children that all live in New York (city). Do you want them all to move to the White House, too?
    God Almighty, what hypocritical bullshit. Aren't you embarrassed to be writing such drivel? First, the conservatives complained about EVERY vacation the Obamas took during the 8 YEARS he was in office.

    With Obama's current 11-day trip to Hawaii included (a trip which began Dec. 23 and is expected to end Jan. 2), he took a total of 29 vacations, which spanned all or part of 228 days – or an average of just under a month of vacation time a year.
    How Much Has All of Obama's Vacationing Cost Taxpayers? | Daily Wire

    Trump has been in office only since January 21st and has already taken SEVEN vacations, which have been about $10 million more expensive than those taken by the Obamas. And as you point out, the cost of protecting the First Lady and her son are an additional $500,000 A DAY, almost $100,000 a day more than the entire budget of the National Endowment for the Arts.

    If the Trumps continue this behavior, by the time his term in office is up, we will have spent $! BILLION ANNUALLY for their travel and security.

    They really are unbelievable. They always were irritating but now they're insufferable.

    New Jersey figured out that not all people running for President have character. NJ making it law that a candidate for President release his taxes.

    Trump has caused many "first time" circumstances.

    Jesus, what a crusty old curmudgeon. Brain like a bunch of gears rusted together, popping free once in a while when some gear teeth snap off to move forward lurching, spasmodic. Walking around just slamming off of walls and cursing, barely coherent. The young people think it's hilarious. Mature people just shake their heads and think how sad it all is.

    In all fairness, it's not as if they have any not-fucking-crazy reasons to applaud Trump's tiny presidency so far. Trying to sweep his MASSIVE pile of crap behavior under the rug is the only move left to them.

    Of course, this would a PATRIOTIC conservative would also condemn Trump, but maybe they're in shock.

    Yup, and it's especially galling that he is eating the NYPD budget alive, while at the same time, slashing funds to fight terror in NYC.

    If liberals called people on the right "bed wetting conservatives", would that be the disrespectful kind of talk trump voters cite as the reason the Democrat party lost them?

    This is a serious question.

We can confine the future first families to the White House and Camp David for the four year terms.
    Since he is concerned about the budget and making cuts everywhere...why can't he sacrifice a little as well. Let him take 2 or 3 vacations a year like the rest of the taxpayers picking up his tab. Florida every weekend is absurd and is a slap in the face to the ones who will be experiencing his budget cuts.
