The new normal - taxpayers shell out $3.4 million for Trump's Super Bowl party

Welcome to the new normal - a world in which an impeached president can do anything he wants. As evidence I cite this HuffPost story (tnx to Roving Reporter Sherry) that was pretty far down in the news blocks at HuffPost. So your taxes are going to enrich Trump. As his Chief of Staff would put it, “get used to it.”

HuffPost reports that Taxpayers Get $3.4 Million Tab So Trump Can Host Super Bowl Party For His Club Members. The president’s latest trip to his Palm Beach resort and nearby golf course brings the taxpayer-funded total for his golfing hobby to $130.4 million.

“Trump is and always has been a con man. In 2016, he said that, unlike Obama, he’d never golf and he’d never take personal trips outside the White House,” said former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), who is challenging Trump for the 2020 Republican nomination. “In addition, Trump is using taxpayer money to personally enrich himself because virtually all of his travel is to Trump properties. That is the swamp Trump pledged to drain. Trump is the swamp.”
