Deceiving. Trump travels to MaraLogo but also call that the Sunshine White House as he meets with foreign dignitaries and makes deals there. Trump only takes "Working Vacations!" As a matter of fact if he was sleeping in late and waking up to Private Party at WH with Stevie Wonder and Celebs most Americans would view that as Vacation day but it is not. Golfing with a CEO? Work may be getting done.

You realize that almost all presidents do the same. Also, there have been only 2 foreign dignitaries that Trump has met at Mar A Lago.

Yes, other trips but where he was working on DACA deal and infrastructure, etc. Meeting with politicians. Let's face it the past Presidents were known for not speaking with and shunning other politicians they viewed as opposition. He is not the type of guy to fly to France and drink tea and go "hey I really like your tie. We look great" for a photo op.

LOL - He is exactly the type to want to "flex" his muscles so to speak and show off and try to get one up on whoever he is playing golf with, seeking their approval, etc.

And Malarkey! if you think Trump doesn't shun or not speak with politicians he considers opposition. The individuals that have gone to Mar A Lago that have been politicians, have ALL been republicans or hey, even professional golfers (I'm sure he got a lot done during those particular games).

LOL - You do realize that it's been very few days when there has been a politician visiting right? And then it's just a "dinner". And EVERY president has done the same. You've not been proven right, dear, no matter what you think.

Every morning is a vacation for our genius president. His own staff reported that he doesn't show up for work until around 11 AM. And we know from his Twitter account that he spends a large part of his "executive time" watching Fox and Friends and then tweeting about what he just saw on TV.

This guy works less than any president ever, including George W. Bush. And that is really saying something. Which reminds me of a great line about our genius president:


Who would have thought that one guy could replace Richard Nixon as our crookedest president, Bill Clinton as our horniest president, and George W. Bush as our dumbest president?

Barack made some statement that as prez he would not be taking time off... or something like that...and then took a lot of time off...

Then Trump said something very much like that too... now he sure seems to be taking a whole lot of time off...

barack was well known to come in late too... and YES I do not like how trump is 'presidenting' I am still shocked he was nominated... but then so was hillary. 2 horrible choices.

the only real question is would have she done more damage over all than trump will do to the GOP...

Why would it be unfair to count the Ranch? That is property that Bush Jr. owned and would visit, much like Mar A Lago is property owned by Trump that he visits almost every weekend.

And with Bush Jr., if you break it down to every 4 years, it's 510 vacation days per term, compared to his father's 543 days in a 4 year term. So really, looking at it like that, Bush Sr. would have had the most days if he'd completed a second term. Umm, but it averages out to about 4 months out of every 12 months for Bush Jr. eek

it is unfair and smacks of political bias because there is nothing he could do in DC that he could not do in Crawford.

Chomsky says Bush was trained to talk like a country bumpkin and use the ranch as propaganda. The fucking guy went to a prep school.

Either trained or he got messed up on something. When GWB ran for governor, he was incredibly eloquent. The difference between his gubernatorial oratory skills and his presidential oratory skills was remarkable.

Drugged. All the Presidents are drugged on mind-altering drugs so they can be controlled. They all follow the course of getting dementia later in life. That is why if Trump is eating McDonalds it makes sense. Trump is unfiltered and says what is on his mind and not just reading from teleprompters. Sometimes he gets messed up from too much McDonalds but who wouldn't? Bush was trained to play a cowboy.

I recall seeing a video of W before he went into politics, and his speaking style was radically different. He sounded like any other executive . All of a sudden, in Texas and for President, he sounds like Walter Brennan

Take it from the mentally ill Alex Jones. I always listen to what nut jobs have to say.

Thanks, but I'm not going to watch 18 minutes of Alex Jones. Or 18 seconds. But I assume you have, so who is drugging the presidents?

Also, I'm confused about our genius president. Is he or is he not drugged?

It doesn't matter what his motivation is. He is a bat shit crazy asshole that spews venom and riles up the least educated, paranoid conspiracy theory believing freaks in America. He is dangerous.
