Donald Trump’s Tweets About Obama Going On Vacation Have Not Aged Well

It’s incredible, really, how there’s a directly contradictory Donald Trump tweet for everything. When the White House announced visitor logs would be kept secret: “Why is @BarackObama spending millions to try and hide his records? He is the least transparent President — ever — and he ran on transparency.” When Trump ordered a deadly airstrike on Syria: “TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA – IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!” When Trump wanted Michael Flynn to seek immunity: “ATTN: @HillaryClinton – Why did five of your staffers need FBI IMMUNITY?! #BigLeagueTruth #Debates.”

My theory: Trump is a time-traveling alien studying mankind. We’re failing.

Anyway, the president is swapping one swamp from another, the dumpy White House in Washington D.C. to his private golf club in New Jersey, for a 17-day vacation beginning on Friday, according to the Associated Press.

Naturally, there’s a tweet (or, tweets) for that.

While campaigning in 2016, Trump, who’s on pace to spend eight years of Obama’s travel spending in one year, said, “I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done. I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off.”

Trump has visited a golf course 41 times since his inauguration.
