Wow: The first grandma gets 160k a year for the rest of her life for taking care of Obama's daughters aka Her own grand daughters! She has lived at the White House for the last 8 years for free, been all over the world for free, and has earned a lift time pension of 160k a year for 8 years of looking after her own grand daughters.

This is Hope and change folks! Can't wait for what The Beast comes up with!

^^^^You guys are straight up fools. You think that the ONLY reason Anyone could be upset about this kind of waste is because of the color of ones skin? I know Eric is quick to pull out the race card, But you think 8 years of being a grandma deserves 160k lifetime pension on Tax payers dime is OK? then you are part of the problem.
Government waste.

"This Is About Whiteness" UC Berkeley Students Segregate Campus, Block Bridge With Human Wall

The massive human wall was conceived as a pro-safe space demonstration. Activists wanted the university administration to designate additional safe spaces for trans students, gay students, and students of color. They were apparently incensed that one of their official safe spaces had been moved from the fifth floor of a building to the basement.

According to video footage of the protest, demonstrators blocked off the bridge completely. Students who needed to get to class had no choice but to cross the stream by jumping from rock to rock. Dozens of people can be seen doing so.

In grant's defense (love you buddy!) he is trying to read, vs. being spoonfed video stories.

Sorry for posting a fake link. Honestly I'm glad the story turns out to be false. I'm kicking myself because 99% of what my dad sends me turns out to be blatantly false where I Snopes it myself this one had the outward appearance of being true. I should have investigated it more.

But still less than 1/2 the number of vacation days than Bush.

Except W.

And you do understand a lot of that expense comes from security and Air Force One. What is the President of the United States supposed to say; "I got it guys. Secret Service, you stay here in DC. And I'll be flying coach and staying at the Econo Lodge"?

More phony outrage from people that don't even take the time to make sure they are posting a legit story.

I'm curious how this one "had the outward appearance of being true?"

It was clear before I even clicked on the link it was likely BS.

OK I haven't had a good laugh like this in a long time. Reading through this thread and seeing the same people from 5-7 years ago still battling it out over stuff like this had me laughing like crazy. Love it.

The hypocrisy is impressive with this one. Trump is spending at a rate 10x higher than Obama ($11+ million/mo vs. $1million/mo) and there's total silence from Grant and DenverD. Curious!

One thing I've learned since posting here is that most of the Republicans on this forum are in a "Its my team" mindset.
"It doesn't matter if the quarterback is a douchbag as long as my team is on the field I'm gonna route for them"

Have you ever seen either one of those guys admit when they were wrong?

Grant will admin the news story was fake, but he won't admit to the hypocrisy of staying silent when Trump is running up the security bill at an impressive TEN TIMES the rate of the Obama administration.

You realize that Trump is already up to what Obama spent in a year right? You think 3.7M is a lot? Look into the Florida white house cost. Or what we pay to send his kid on business trips to make money for himself. You really are something else.

Hey, that may be a valid point, however, I'd prefer to see what he does as a whole rather than single out one snippet of his presidency. Wouldn't you agree? We're only 1 of 96 months into this right now. Truth is, we can all cherry pick each other's team to death, beat our chests and claim victory, but it's the whole picture that matters. I'd like to think that Trump's governing will produce mucho benefits/stimuli/surplus-which will more than mitigate the expenses that you're cryin about. I may be wrong. I guess we'll see. One thing for sure is all these conniption fits by the left are doing, is nothing but marginalizing them and making them look like extremist kooks, wearing see-through masks as watchdogs. Problem for them is no one cares what they say right now. It's a chicken little kinda scenario.

No one is "cherry picking"; they are doing an apples to apples comparison. Every time Obama went on vacation, conservative talking heads went berserk about the costs. WTF do they say now that Trump, who has only been the WH for a month now, is spending significantly more on his vacations? It just shows how disingenuous conservatives are when it comes to their talk about national debt.

The ***-for-tat on what it costs the President to travel really has nothing to do with the national debt.

We have a President. That President is entitled to vacation, and to have AF1 at his (or her, eventually) disposal. That costs money. The amount of money seems large for a single person / family (and is, compared to how most folks vacation) but this is the head of the executive branch of the most powerful nation on earth. It's not fair to compare what it costs to go rent a houseboat for a week.

Wanna talk about national debt? Let's talk taxes / social security / medicare / military funding. Presidential travel costs (whether Bush's, Obama's or Trump's) are a red herring for morons to seize onto.
