    Why is nobody mentioning the fact that Trump used an interview on his command to launch the missiles on Syria as an opportunity to plug the chocolate cake at his privately owned resort?

    I've seen comment about it on FB, maybe even a meme, does that count?

    Trump's weekend trips to Mar-a-Lago (where he ate beautiful chocolate cake while ordering missiles to be fired on Syria) cost American taxpayers 25 million dollars this far. By way of comparison, the Obama administration cost taxpayers an average 12.1 million per year.

    Trump is working harder so he needs more rest.

    It's certainly being commented on, but nobody other than diehard anti Trump critics seem to consider it significant.

    It's more the hypocrisy than anything else. Obama's vacations were commonly attacked by the right.

    He cost us a lot more than that...

    In all seriousness, each time Obama came to LA to schmooze with celebs and raise money, he probably cost several million dollars in lost productivity, due to road closures and the like. At least Trump is going to Florida instead of New York, which I'm told comes to a complete standstill when he's in town.
