    Why do you find this funny? I remember all the complaints when any of the Obama's travel and the outrage from the right about the cost...while the expected costs for dumbass & co. for one year is on par for 8 years of Obamas traveling. Is it only an issue when it is a Democrat? A liberal? A Black family? What exactly is it that makes the difference?

    They even admitted it is not the Trump's fault.
    It's the way the law is written.

    Obama had SS service for his girls and MIL.
    Of course, everywhere they went they had to rent the place they were staying.
    So it does balance out.

    What I find funny is the money they are running out of is ours. The blame, if you will, can only be put on Congress.
    Maybe Trump's next quarter paycheck can go to the SS.

    Have you not got it yet?? DA's travel this year has surpassed O's travel in 8 years. Further DA travels with a much larger party than O. DA needs more folks to tell him how wonderful he is.

    I actually spent several years working in bookkeeping/accounting and I can't make the expenses for 1 year of protecting trumps "balance out" with expenses for 8 years to protect Obamas. Whenever the MIL flew on Air Force One, the government was reimbursed fair market value of a commercial ticket even though it did not cost one penny more for her to be on the plane. Not only that, whenever the President/family travels for vacations/personal travel they pay for their own lodging it is not paid for by the government (however, the Secret Service travel expenses are incurred by the government). The government does pay for the lodging/travel expenses for Secret Service and other government personnel traveling with them...and when they are at trump properties that payment is being made to...trumps!!! So, that $100k quarterly salary donated is probably recovered in less than two weekends of expenses of the Secret Service at a a trump property.

    So, maybe a little consideration might be shown to the taxpayers by curtailing personal travel on all their parts...but, don't hold your breath.

    I wouldn't be surprised if whenever the trips are "government related" such as entertaining foreign leaders at Mar-A-Lago that the government is charged for the president's lodging. That would be an interesting bit of information to know, wouldn't it?

    By law, the government is not allowed to "be given or provided anything of value" free of charge; they must pay fair market value. What the trumps can be blamed for is the frequency of the travel for personal reasons, not that they be provided protection. I believe that their protection is a necessity and they deserve it; but, at the same time a little consideration never hurt anyone.
