Republicans Demonstrate What "The Height Of Hypocrisy" Looks Like & Fox "News" Ignores It! PART DEUX: The Golf Edition

1. Republicans Demonstrate What "The Height Of Hypocrisy" Looks Like & Fox "News" Ignores It!
2. Case Study: The Fox News Echo Chamber Model Of "News" Is Designed To Encourage Dictatorships & Destroy Democracy

This post outlines the amazing, almost comical and disheartening, levels of hypocrisy, the GOP, Trump and Fox News are exhibiting. 

TRUMP HITS THE LINKS (AGAIN!) 3/21/17 After years of criticizing President Obama's time on the golf course, President Trump is now trying to justify his own frequent tee-offs.

This is  big deal because "Obama shouldn't ever be golfing" was a big talking point of the GOP, Fox News & thus Trump BEFORE Trump/GOP/FoxNews won the elections. Here are some examples...

Fox News Insider: "Obama wants to play golf instead of deal with people. Part of being a leader is to get everybody in line." Donald J. Trump sat down with Bill O'Reilly for his first post-announcement interview and discussed a variety of topics, including how he would defeat ISIS.

Huffington Post: Louie Gohmert: Obama Golf Trips Should End Until White House Tours Resume
Trump's strong opinions on presidential golfing If there's one thing Trump was adamant about on the campaign trail, it's how much time a president should spend on the golf course.

On top of all that, Trump seems to be ruthlessly using the United States government like his personal piggy bank, covering his multiple vacations, his golf courses... cutting the funding for the Coast Guard which he uses like his personal security service (which is pretty much all their budget is going to go for at this rate... leaving less money and time to protect our coasts)....

Trump seeks Coast Guard cuts despite extra golf club guard duties Rachel Maddow reports on cuts the Coast Guard budget called for in Donald Trump's proposed budget, even though the Coast Guard shoulders much of the added burden of guarding Trump's Florida golf resort while he's there.

Another thing Fox News complained alot was Obama's expenses as President. So much for that argument. Clearly there is nothing but hypocrisy where the GOP and Fox News are concerned...

Compare (this really is the Height Of Hypocrisy!)...

CNN: Trump on pace to surpass 8 years of Obama's travel spending in 1 year : Story highlights
  • Conservatives frequently attacked Obama for spending on his travel while president
  • Trump has spent 21 days at his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida

Forbes: Trumps Family Trips Cost Taxpayers Nearly As Much In A Month As Obamas Cost In A Whole Year

Think Progress: Trump’s first month of travel expenses cost taxpayers just less than what Obama spent in a year Meanwhile, his budget proposal cuts programs for poor people.
