Donald Trump has spent an astounding 168 days at a golf club since the beginning of his presidency, costing taxpayers a staggering $96,000,000 — compared to a total 37 golf trips made by Obama in his 8 years. Yet, he still somehow had the audacity to berate Democrats today for being on “vacation” when he feels that they should, instead, be addressing Trump’s make-believe “border crisis.”
POTUS is predicting that despite the efforts of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the number of illegal immigrants that manage to cross into the US at our southern border will “only get worse.”
“Democrats in Congress must return from their Vacations and change the Immigration Laws, or the Border, despite the great job being done by Border Patrol, will only get worse. Big sections of Wall now being built!” his tweet this morning read.

Trump’s reference to a “vacation” is actually regarding the fact that both the House and Senate are currently in a two-week recess for Easter — he conveniently left out the part about Republicans also being on congressional recess.
But that’s not even the richest part of his rage tweet. Yahoo News’ Collin Campbell called Trump out on the fact that even if Democrats were to head back to Washington right this second, Trump’s ass wouldn’t be there.

It seems that Donald himself is on the fast track to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida just as soon as he wraps up swearing in his new EPA head this afternoon. A Federal Aviation Administration notice confirmed Trump’s getaway by mentioning “VIP movement” in the area while Palm Beach announced Thursday morning traffic restrictions — not to mention the fact that Trump traditionally spends Easter at his club, with his last two Easters in office spent at Mar-a-Lago.
We call that the pot calling the kettle black, Mr. President.
