|Trumps Mar-a-Lago Estate|
Over his first 3 months as our President, the Trumpster has hosted 2 foreign leaders at Mar-a-Lago, Chinese Prfesident Xi Jinping and Japan's Shinzo Abe. In both instances, they talked policy in the public dinning room of the posh resort and while eating dinner there with Jinping we launched 59 tomahawk missiles into a Syrian air base. For some reason I think that talking international diplomacy at this level should be done in the White House or not within earshot of the public. Of course, after the Chinese President left, our boy the Trumpster stayed and shot a few rounds of golf all on the taxpayers dollar.

Now, this leads me to my final Gripe about this whole Mar-a-Lago thing. In case you have had your head in the sand or have been fixated by April the Giraffe giving birth, the Mar-a-Lago property is owned by the man himself, Donald Trump. This made me wonder who exactly is profiting from the Trumpster's visits? After some careful research, I decided that who actually pays for his trips is more important. Besides Trump, 2 dozen A-Lister's from his administration have visited the property over the past 3 months, along with some high level job applicants and even New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. All on the Taxpayers buck. In fact, Judicial Watch estimates the cost of just the trip from Washington to Mar-a-Lago and back is $1,000,000.00 or $142,380 per hour. So far, the estimated costs of the Trumpsters 7 trips to Mar-a-Lago is somewhere around $10,000,000 or $625,000.00 per trip. Of course all of this is paid for by the taxes of "We The People".
Next weekend, I will be heading down to Washington, DC to march in the March for Science. According to the march organizers, this gathering is being held to protest the Trumpster's hostile views toward science. I will fill you all in on my next Gripe.
