But...but...ummm...........he and his family are wealthy "real" Americans... and this is worth the expense since he's making America Great again, which will more than compensate for providing travel and security expenses for his family as they tend to their business interests all over the world...that's how the rich roll...and we support our rich, since they constantly talk about helping average Americans by giving them security and jobs...and stuff...

I don't get it...Obama was heavily criticized by the right for abusing his position because the bill for family security and travel expenses was $85 M...for EIGHT years.

Trump is asking for $60 M more for this year ALONE, and we're only 2 months into his first year...and given the law of expense creep, it'll likely be more this year and in the next years of his term...crickets from the right, or winks and jokes...

Where is the intellectual consistency...or does this just clinch the perception that Obama would never be cut any slack on the right because of his "so-called nationality"

Like I SAID:
About 3? TIMES before this thread....

Trump's FAMILY SECURITY WILL BANKRUPT
THE entire U.S. TREASURY...

Everybody seems to be counting MICHELLE's
Lobster# intake over 8 Years....I forget the estimate...3,000?? Or so...
That LOBSTER COST wouldn't even cover protecting the TRUMP MASSIVE FAMILY SECURITY COST FOR
ONE FREAKIN' DAY....

I THINK Obama realized the safest and cheapest place to be ....was the WHITEHOUSE...
LIKE EVERY PRESIDENT BEFORE HIM....
HE WAS NORMAL IN THAT RESPECT....EXCEPT FOR
VACATIONS AND GOLFING...

BUT THIS TRUMP CLAN is beyond comprehension
In security detail costs....

When he leaves office...it doesn't "go away "
Either...his family will be a ball and chain to the
Secret Service FOR DECADES TO COME....

IT WILL NEVER END..$$$$$$$
Millions and Millions every year till 2060 just for TRUMPS SPAWN and grandkids....

HAHAHA that's F'n hilarious.....let me catch my breath. All you on the left who were / ARE so enamored with our first half black president and Racist in Chief.....and went on like he was the coming of the Messiah were/ ARE so caught up in your political correctness to recognize the man and his politics as FLAWED. But he was VERY successful in accomplishing his MAIN GOAL....to DIVIDE our country, get us started down the road of Socialism and try to turn Americans completely against Law Enforcement.


And THAT is what he'll be remembered for throughout history. ( Along with Obammycare )

Me neither....especially not just 3 months into his term!!! But then even if you did question ANYTHING about the man or his F'd up policies....you were labeled a bigot or racist or similar. After all he was the New Massiah
Tony is a prime example of over use of the race card when giving O'bummer cover.

Those on the left were outraged that he would take such a risk...especially given the black on black crime in Washington DC...and how it seemed the Secret Service weren't taking their jobs too seriously...What was he thinking?

Those on the right kept encouraging him "to come on out and let us know first"...

No, Trump will be Obammy's legacy. He was so bad as POTUS that the stage was set for a Trump victory over Hildog!

You are incorrect to blame the left for Trump stealing the GOP nomination from the GOP.

You had 8 FRIGGING YEARS to come up with something better than 17 idiots running for the nomination, and then letting an outsider waltz in and steal the deal.

Look inside your own home to figure out who stole the party...and why. Start with inability to govern when in control.

Protecting the POTUS is critical, regardless of your like or dislike of the current President; it's a non negotiable issue. It not a topic for nuanced jokes about letting harm get to a President wrapped in complaints about the cost.

If those Secret Service agents got better pay they might not have tried to stiff a hooker like that wild night in Cartagena. FWIW, I was appalled that several nut jobs got close to the Whitehouse and one inside of the Whitehouse during Obama time in office. The Secret Service was not, IMO, doing a very good job.

Considering the number of tanks I keeps seeing being shipped down the line by the house perhaps a beef up in presidential security can be justified. Maybe not 60mil but an extra ten or fifteen million might not hurt.

One could argue that although Trump did beat the field for the GOP nomination, that the votes were drastically diluted due to the number of participants.
On the other hand, the democrats propped up their very best. Their number 1 seed who made it to the finals.
And it was Hillary.

Not after his "I grabbed their puzzies" comments became public... liberal women who ditched their bras 35-40 years ago and grudgingly put them back on when their nipples pointed at their feet would never vote for Trump...and now can be seen marching in the streets wearing pink hats protesting him...

...what is astonishing to me is the number of women on the right who never forgave Bill's philandering ways and criticized Hillary for standing by her man...now overlook worse behavior by Trump...

Al, I think most rational folks took what Slick Willy did so offensively because he showed NO RESPECT for the Oval Office...perhaps had the POS got them a room @ Motel 6....the People wouldn't have cared nearly as much if @ all.

And everyone with half a brain KNOWS why Hilldog stood by her man....we just witnessed it in the 2017 election that she LOST. Her running for office with HIS SUPPORT....was part of her willingness to look past Bill's transgressions mark my words!!!!
