You’re Paying 10 Times More To Protect Trump Than Obama - The Secret Service has spent $16,000 on golf cart rentals alone.
rump used to criticize Obama for charging his “lavish” vacations to the government. “President @BarackObama’s vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars — unbelievable!” he tweeted in 2012.

All presidents are required to bring the Secret Service with them on family vacations — not just Obama. But now that Trump is president, his own getaways are costing taxpayers way more than Obama’s ever did.

The Washington Post recently reported that the three trips Trump made to Mar-a-Lago in January cost the federal treasury about $10 million in security and staffing expenses.

Let’s quickly compare that to what it cost taxpayers to protect Obama while he was in office. JudicialWatch.org, a conservative website based in DC, used federal records to estimate that Obama’s travel expenses over the eight years he was president totaled $96.9 million. That’s about $12 million a year.

A bit of quick math shows that Trump has somehow spent almost as much on travel security on three weekends in Mar-a-Lago as Obama did in an entire year.

Trump is a particularly expensive president to protect because he and his family have extravagant lifestyles even compared to past presidents’. Melania and [son], for example, choose not to live in the White House, meaning their Fifth Avenue penthouse had to be fortified and provided with round-the-clock protection. It costs the city of New York about $500,000 a day—or $15 million a month—to protect the building. (By contrast, the Chicago Tribune reported in 2009 that the city spent about $275,000 a month to protect Obama’s house in Kenwood while he was president.)

The worst news for taxpayers? Even if Trump gets voted out of office in 2020, the agency is still required to protect him for the rest of his life.

Speaking of golf a lady came back to the clubhouse and said she quit playing because she got stung by a bee.
When asked where she got stung she said "Between the first and second holes"
"You must have an unusually wide stance" was the reply.
