Trump takes hypocrisy to new lows

Making golf great again?
Donald Trump made his mark by trashing President Obama six ways to Sunday.

Yes, President did golf on occasion. His first outing came four months after first setting foot in the White House.

Well, Trump has hit the links six times in his first month.

Trump and other Republican mouthpieces whined and whined about how much President Obama was wasting taxpayer dollars by traveling to Hawaii and elsewhere.

Well, Trump has spent more tax dollars in a month than President Obama did in a year.

Trump's three trips to his winter White House in Florida have cost $10 million so far. President Obama spent an estimated $90 million in eight years. 

Trump will break that bank by October, long before his first year in office is over.

Also, keeping Melania holed up in New York is costing taxpayers up to a $1 million per day.

Or, consider how taxpayers are footing the bill for Trump's kids' business trips around the globe.

And, finally, candidate Trump railed against President Obama's use of executive orders. Check out this video.

Of course, none of this troubles Trump's supporters who are even more hypocritical than he is.

National debt? Who cares, they now say.

What's next?

Has anyone seen Trump's birth certificate?

Is Trump a traitor?

Apparently, that is what some in the U.S. intelligent community believe.

That is unprecedented for a sitting president, but not all that surprising.

Donald Trump came into office trashing the intelligence community because they concluded that the Russians and Vladimir Putin interfered with the election on Trump's behalf.

Not a smart move.

Trump was further upset that a leaked dossier revealed the Russians have compromising information about Trump and he is vulnerable to blackmail.

So far, some of the material in the dossier has been corroborated.

It's likely the rest of the salacious details will be supported by evidence as well.

The U.S. spies are so concerned about Trump's ties to Russia before and after the election that they're withholding information from the White House for fear it will fall into the wrong hands.

Check out these pieces from a New York Observer reporter, a former NSA analyst, who's been all over this story for a few months now. Ironically, the Observer's owner is Jared Kushner, Trump's cabana boy and son-in-law.

The reporter, John Schindler, tweets like Trump.

Here are a couple of tweets:

"IC (intelligence community) thinks Trump is a traitor. I'll leave to actual lawyers to assess that, but it's quite a day in any democracy when the spies think such."


"Now we go nuclear. IC war going to new levels. Just got an EM fm senior IC friend, it began: "He will die in jail."

We can only hope.

His gold-plated headstone should read: Here lies Twump, the tweeter twaitor.
