Respect for Taxpayer Money (and tax payers)

President Trump — known for his obsession with opulence — has brought that love of luxury to the White House.

From Inauguration Day, the Trump administration had spent more than twice as much on White House furniture as President Obama.

For example, GAO documents show that the trumpster in the dumpster spent $133,053 on his office furnishings alone, compared to $51,204.25 by Obama.

Trump’s office also purchased a custom conference table from the high-end Kittinger Company that went for about $13,000.

But Trump wasn’t the first president to order a Kittinger: President Richard Nixon also had one of the pricey tables. (below)

Trump repeatedly slammed Obama for what he said was a luxurious lifestyle in the White House. The cowardly Trump White House did not respond to a request for comment.


It’s not as easy as you might think to track Trump’s many golf games.

His staff has on several occasions declined to confirm he played golf while spending the day at his golf club. So in some cases, we have to rely on reporters’ observations and those of private citizens who spotted Trump on the course and posted pictures on social media.

For years, President Donald Trump bullied Barack Obama for playing golf while “on the job.”

Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf.Worse than Carter October 13, 2014

But since taking office, Trump has been a regular visitor at golf clubs that he owns in Florida, Virginia, and New Jersey — by far outpacing Obama in the amount of time and money he spends on the green. (out of your pockets and into his)

When you turn the circles over, you get the GAO (government accounting office) report on Trump Spending on himself (at your expense).

Today at PEETs, a republican interrupted a conversation regarding "The Devil and Daniel Webster." [a PDF]

"Didn't Daniel Webster write an Encyclopedia?" (She asked)

"No, Noah Webster wrote a Dictionary," I offered.

She was, like the typical republican, wrong on two counts. But she managed the deed in a single sentence!
