Let’s make one thing clear. Donald Trump donating his salary doesn’t put a dent in how much his extravagant lifestyle is costing US taxpayers.

I can’t believe people fall for this bullshit.

President Donald Trump is donating his third-quarter salary to help tackle the nation’s opioid epidemic.

A White House official says Trump has given the $100,000 he would be paid in the quarter to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health, which oversees federal public health offices and programs, including the surgeon general’s office.

The White House says the funds are being earmarked “to continue the ongoing fight against the opioid crisis.”

Trump has made tackling the misuse of opioids an administration priority. More than 70,000 Americans died in 2017 from drug overdoses, the bulk of them involving opioids.

Trump is required to be paid, but he has pledged to donate his salary while in office to worthy causes. Trump donated his second-quarter salary to the surgeon general’s office.

Hang on, that made me throw up in my mouth a little. 

Okay now there are some news outlets, I won’t mention any by name (Fox News, OAN, Breitbart.), that used reports like this to applaud Donald Trump’s “selflessness” and his dedication to serving the American people without seeking financial compensation. 

I have no idea who actually believes this but I imagine it is the same knuckle dragging dipshits who believe that Trump is a better president than Abraham “Freaking” Lincoln. 

But here, let me clue you in.

Courtesy of HuffPo:

With his Thanksgiving vacation, President Donald Trump’s golf hobby has now cost Americans an estimated $115 million in travel and security expenses ― the equivalent of 287 years of the presidential salary he frequently boasts about not taking.

Of that amount, many hundreds of thousands ― perhaps millions ― of dollars have gone into his own cash registers, as Secret Service agents, White House staff and other administration officials stay and eat at his hotels and golf courses.

The exact amount cannot be determined because the White House refuses to reveal how many Trump aides have been staying at his properties when he visits them and will not turn over receipts for the charges incurred.

Yeah I think we can assume that the amount of taxpayer money spent at Trump properties is significantly higher than this. 

Trump giving up his piddly presidential paycheck while spending milions of taxpayer dollars at his businesses is equivalent to an employee giving back his Christmas bonus and then using the company credit card to book a private jet to Barbadoes along with hotel accommodations for a month. 

The man is a crook, and he is stealing from us right out in broad daylight.

    Until Trump, people who gossip and publicize others insecurities are scum and unworthy of respect. I certainly don’t let my kids around people like this, even if it’s family.

    But I dont give a shit when people comment on Trump.

    Donald Trump does not have a giving bone in his body—
    unless there is something in it for him. Not taking his salary probably gives him a nice
    big tax break while fooling the rubes that he cares.

    And as noted, he has basically looted the coffers for pleasure for three years.
    And not a word from the howling republicans who came apart the few times the Obamas went out to dinner
    or to Hawaii.once a year . . .

    Nato leaders reportedly would like to avoid Trump at upcoming meetings. Must suck to be the kid that no one wants to play with. Or even be downwind of.

    Hi- can you write a post about the historical fact that in early politics the Democratic and Republican party’s were ‘reverse’? As in the conservatives were the Democrats. The memes going around are so misleading as to ‘historical’ votes by each, & reality of initial party labels, times and intent would be clarifying for all.

    I hope lardass is forced to reimburse the taxpayers for all the millions he has swindled from the taxpayers, if any Democratic president pulled this crap, the articles of impeachment would have been written years ago.

    Oddly, he looks 200 pounds heavier than in that shirtless photo yesterday.

    Did Sarah show him how to stuff pillows under his shirt?

    I work with the sister of a very very famous NYer. This guy has a very popular possible oscar contending film out this year.
    Anyways, the guy says that Drump is responsible for getting so many models and such pregnant in the 80s that it is a joke that he is now anti abortion.
    We all know and believe this, but it is different when you hear it from someone who was there and who knows first hand.
    Americans are stooopid.
    I just got back from the bible belt for TG and ugghh…….that is all.
