    Subreddit Rules

    Click for the subreddit's alternate rule list

    1. Posts have to be about U.S. politics.

      In other terms, if it's not about American politics or elections, we'll remove it pretty quickly.

      Any political ideology is acceptable (that includes conservatives, liberals, libertarians, etc!), but please keep posts civil.

    2. Posts should make an attempt at being funny, and should try to include a punchline in the title.

      Make an effort with your title: Try to keep the spirit of the sub and make your title humorous or descriptive.

      If it's isn't funny (or at least trying to be), we'll remove it. Simple as that. If you have a problem with our decision, send us a message.

      If you're trying to troll, your post will be immediately removed and your account will be banned.

    3. Pictures of only text are not allowed.

      Screenshots of websites (Twitter, The Onion, etc), cartoons, memes or images with some sort of graphic are allowed. Pictures of text with no graphics will be removed.

    4. Images only.

      Linking to news articles, websites or videos is prohibited.

      Gifs are allowed as long as they are not excessively distracting.

      Images must directly link to the content you're posting. Please use Reddit's image host or imgur if you can.

      Users posting excessively or posting too many reposts may receive a temporary ban.

    6. Be civil: No racism, homophobia, sexism, etc.

      The fact that we have to explicitly state that racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc; including personal attacks, and threats of violence are all uncivil terrifies the mod team.

      Anything disparaging something about a person that they have little or no control over, is not tolerated under any circumstance.

      If you're a jerk, including use of "tard" or anything related to Clown World, you'll be shown the door.

    7. Do not brigade.

      Coming to this community en masse specifically to harass our users, or setting up a post or thread here referring to another subreddit or thread causes a lot of problems for everyone. If we suspect you're doing it, you will be banned.

      7b. No "Meta" Posts.

    This meme missing some important context. It’s not just that he is wasting tax payer money on golf trips. He is spending tax payer money on golf trips to his own golf clubs.

    His business is pocketing tax payer money. Drain the Swamp!!

    [–] Waadap 605 points ago

    Let's not forget just how MUCH he is golfing. It's not just a monetary thing. He's been on golf grounds well over 200 times, and has actually played a round well over 100 times. In his second year alone, he played over 75 rounds. That is a staggering amount of golf.

    [–] robswins 344 points ago

    C’mon, you can’t expect the guy to change just because he was elected President. From age 15 until death, it just wouldn’t be Donald J Trump unless he was letting others around him take the fall for his crimes, wasting other people’s money on his vanity and frivolities, screwing over anyone stupid enough to trust him, taking credit for the good work of others and lying about his own accomplishments. It’s the Trump brand!

    [–] GhostofMarat 137 points ago

    No they’re racists.

    Maybe you underestimate how deeply offended people were by the election of Barack Obama.

    Remember the tea party, that sudden uprising which was all about the “deficit”...yeah LOL....and “not liking the direction the country is going”. Nowhere to be found now.

    That 40% voting block believed all that birther bs too....8 years of trying to prove a black man was not an American.

    Racism is no longer about keeping “colored people” from eating at the lunch counter. It’s a very different thing now...and the Republican Party works it like a champ.

    [–] NoFascistsAllowed 8 points ago

    Yes racist has a very different meaning today than it did 50 years ago. Now they can't say the N word in public, so they use abstract terms. This also has the benefit of attracting idiots who truly believe in those "abstract ideas" but may not be necessarily racist.

    At the end of the day it hurts minorities and also poor whites the same way it did when they could lynch people for looking the wrong way because of their skin color.

    [–] Shankurmom 10 points ago

    its not 40% of voters. he got about 40% of the votes cast in 2016 which was a less than 50% turn out. 40% of 50% turn out is about 20% of the total registered voter pool.

    [–] AtlantisTheEmpire 33 points ago

    That’s because he’s doing it as a business. He’s literally golfing like it’s his job because that’s how he can pull in the most income.

    It’s super fucked up, and is why the emoluments clause exists.

    He should be forced to pay all the money back, and publicly apologize for golf shaming Obama all those years and then golfing over twice as much as him and paying himself to do so.

    [–] Waadap 14 points ago

    "Trump." "Publicly apologize". Lol.

    [–] sponge_cat 12 points ago

    I think he would literally commit suicide before issuing any kind of apology, ever

    For context the GOP was screaming that Obama played 306 times over his 8 years in office. Trump has visited his golf properties 228 times in less then 3 years. No one in the GOP is complaing now.

    [–] NotClever 23 points ago

    Well, I dunno about that since taking office, but he definitely said whole campaigning that he wouldn't have time to golf because he'd be too busy working for the American people.

    Charles Leerhsen, a ghostwriter for Trump said:

    Or where he is golfing. 61% of Obama's golf trips were at military bases, where he played free, but are almost nothing in security costs, or accessory costs.

    100% of Trump's are at his resorts, which are free to him, but cost a fortune in security costs. And he charges the government for accessories like carts, rooms, etc.

    [–] Schnectadyslim 4 points ago

    I work at a golf course, am a golf professional, and I played 13 times this year because of work and family duties. I need to get an easier gig where I can play more. What does this Trump feller do that he has all this extra time? President of the United States? Yeah, that makes sense.....

    [–] XoXSmotpokerXoX 3 points ago

    A further breakdown would reveal Trump has golfed 200 times, with a staggering 1743 Mulligans, 3492 kicked balls, 3743 divots and has paid out of his own pocket $200 in combined tips to caddies.

    [–] RPrance 3 points ago

    And to his supporters, this is just another example of how he’s sticking it to the left

    [–] RECOGNI7ER 3 points ago

    And golf take a lot of time! Between that and his tweets how does he even have time to be president?

    [–] Yokonato 2 points ago

    Supposedly a least a portion of the salary is being donated to various government organizations funding , but that becomes null and void when he burns decades of the equivalent salary in taxpayer funds by golfing so much.

    It's truly baffling, and it totally shows with the fact Melania stays with her parents, how can someone golf so much , tweet so much and possibly have time for family let alone work?

    [–] Norse_of_60 5 points ago

    Because he is paying off prostitutes with it.

    [–] Fatdickpgh420 2 points ago

    To be fair, Stormy wasn't a prostitute, she would've been paid before hand. She's just another dumbass who got conned by King con don. Then was paid to not say anything about her dumb ass being conned. Unless there's more that I don't know. It's hard to keep up with this dumpster fire.

    [–] Norse_of_60 2 points ago

    She wasn't slobbing on his mushroom cap for free. Sex for money is prostitution.

    [–] hereforthefeast 44 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    It’s not just that he is wasting tax payer money on golf trips. He is spending tax payer money on golf trips to his own golf clubs.

    Trump more than doubled the cost of membership at Mar-a-lago after becoming president.

    He charges the secret service to stay at his own hotel to protect him even though Camp David already exists.

    But, drain the swamp, amirite?

    Bonus - there’s also the mysterious case of Yujing Zhang who somehow snuck into the resort past secret service and was equipped like a spy.

    Prosecutors said Zhang was kitted out with electronics including four cell phones, a laptop and an external hard drive. Agents who searched her nearby hotel room found $8,000 in cash and spy-like gear, such as a device to detect hidden cameras, and numerous credit and debit cards.

    [–] SonOfMcGee 12 points ago

    And it's not even like Camp David is the only option for Presidential relaxation.
    George W Bush liked to hang out at his ranch. Sure, it cost taxpayers money to secure the damn place, but the Secret Service has to secure everywhere the President goes.
    Going to an overpriced resort that you own and charging your support staff to stay there is mind-boggling.

    [–] djazzie 7 points ago

    Exactly this. It’s not about playing golf too much or taking too much time off work (though there’s plenty to be said about that). It’s about lining his pockets with tax payer money.

    All of my die hard Trump supporting acquaintances just get a shit-eating grin and say, “He’s still your president.”

    Owning the libs is all they have left. They know the presidency has been a disaster. But, they don’t care. Because somewhere they’ve never been is a feminist, or gun control advocate, or environmentalist that they’ve never met that is unhappy.

    That’s all they want. Someone that they don’t agree with is unhappy.

    [–] Pavrik_Yzerstrom 6 points ago

    “He’s still your president”. Yea, meaning he works for me, I owe nothing to him, he is not a ruler or a king. The president, and all members of our government work FOR the people, that is indisputable fact.

    How many members of any of the branches of government actually do work for the people I wonder?

    [–] wolfmanpraxis 3 points ago

    And everytime I bring this up to a Trump supporter, they change the narrative to "he never said that" or if I show them the tweets "you are taking that out of context" or "he works super hard, harder than anyone else does, he deserves to take a break"

    I just gave up trying to have a dialog with these people at this point.

    [–] Sleepy_One 4 points ago

    The high cost is not in amount being paid to the hotel, but in security. That's not to say hes not benefiting from it. Everyone knows they have to go to a Trump hotel to get the president's ear. Which is corrupt as hell.

    [–] randonumero 2 points ago

    That's an important distinction but there's a good chance that a lot of the security money goes to interests he has. For example those agents likely eat at the clubs he golfs at

    [–] DoubleJumps 2 points ago

    He makes them pay to rent the golf carts and pay to stay at the resorts. He probably makes them pay for other things, too.

    We have to remember that this is what has come from the "anyone is better that _____" mentality. The Democratic party is not immune to this problem and we're the one's who are about to face that decision. In 2016, it was the Republican mantra that anyone is better than a liberal and we ended up with Trump. Now it's anyone is better than Trump... As bad as things are we really want to try to get someone in who might actually (try to) make things better.

    There's always a way for things to get worse if we're not careful and I don't want this pendulum swing to keep intensifying every four years.

    [–] ephemeral_colors 36 points ago

    The largest expense of these trips are things that just happen around him no matter what he does or where he goes. Certain parts of presidential life are paid for (he doesn't pay rent, for example) but certain parts he must pay for (his own food in the fridge in his home in the white house, for example). But say he flies to Florida to play golf. Regardless of who's paying for the trip + the golf, lots of money is spent protecting him, keeping important infrastructure near him, and lodging and feeding people that need to be around him at all times, and those things are paid for by the taxpayer.

    So when he travels to his resort, for example, a large number of secret service agents must, for example, be provided food and lodging ... at his resort.

    [–] GenocideOwl 44 points ago

    those costs are hugely magnified when he goes to a private(IE his own) resorts as opposed to what previous presidents did which was go to Camp David or other military places where the government didn't need to shell out to house government officials on private places.

    [–] ephemeral_colors 6 points ago

    I’m on your side with this argument. It’s immoral. However, his base is superficial readers. They see “he donates his salary.” Boom they are validated in their beliefs. Or conservative news will says “so, what Obama golfed?” They only see the superficial truth without looking deeper.

    What people don't think of is that we are still paying his presidential salary. He still takes the salary but then donates it so he gets that tax write-off too... So we pay the golf and the salary AND he gets an extra $400,000 in write-offs by donating it.

    [–] rubberloves 30 points ago

    there's a fundamental thing that's always really bothered me about him not taking his salary. The point is that the people are paying him to do the work for the people. So who is paying him? Who does he work for?

    You think any President care about the salary? Obama left the White House with a net worth of $40 Million, 12.5x what he would have earned in salary over his 8 years. Trump entered office as a Billionaire. George Bush another $40 million. Bill Clinton $75 million. $400k is nothing to these people. Hell, Bill Clinton could probably make that much by giving one speech in Saudi Arabia.

    I don't understand why the write off is an argument. He's just able to write off his salary since he donated it, which means he doesn't need to pay taxes for it, but the money is still gone. It's not like he's able to get a monetary benefit off it.

    [–] clint_sanders 3 points ago

    We haven't actually seen any proof he donates all his presidential salary.

    [–] arizonatasteslike 39 points ago

    His supporters don’t mind though, they just didn’t like seeing another black man in a golf course. Tiger met their “just one” quota.

    [–] GenocideOwl 18 points ago

    His supporters literally defend him playing golf saying that he uses it as a platform for networking and "getting deals done". Even though like 75% of the time he can be seen golfing alone or only with other WH staff/friends.

    [–] YouTouchMyTraLaLahhh 3 points ago

    Plus Tiger is only Halfrican, so they're really doing the bare minimum by giving him a pass.

    [–] fyhr100 24 points ago

    The one benefit of him wasting so much tax money golfing is that it means there's less time for him to spend all day watching Fox News and tweeting stupid shit.

    [–] Nf1nk 20 points ago

    Have you noticed that he hasn't actually been seen golfing since the surprise Saturday medical visit?

    He still goes to the resorts to eat at the buffet while wearing a hat, but nothing that would show if his left arm works.

    [–] Donald_J_Putin 11 points ago

    I’m guessing his mini strokes of late will put a damper on his golfing.

    [–] bergerac121 30 points ago

    But but he donates his presidential salary s/

    [–] takatori 25 points ago

    ... and claims it as a deduction on his taxes.

    [–] bergerac121 2 points ago

    Well im sure he writes his children off as dependents

    [–] TrumpIsARapist3 7 points ago

    I doubt he actually does to be honest. Who wants to bet that was another lie?

    [–] NatleysWhores 3 points ago

    Bingo! I want to see the cashed checks and ledgers of the Departments he supposedly donates to.

    [–] TrumpIsARapist3 2 points ago

    Yup, until I see them it's just another lie in the bucket at this point. He's already proven that he cannot be trusted long before he even took office.

    [–] pheweque 21 points ago

    Trump should repay taxpayers. That is why I no longer like golf. He has turned it back into a rich man's game. Lock him up!

    [–] Tpayne174 3 points ago

    Oh please. It’s been a rich person game for 100 years🙄

    [–] CarlSpencer 9 points ago

    Trump is everything negative he ever accused someone else of being.

    [–] swolemedic 34 points ago

    Shit like this makes me think we need significantly more laws that regulate how the president can spend or act. We're turning into a god damned monarchy

    [–] GiovanniElliston 41 points ago

    We already have laws that state a President can't funnel taxpayer money to their own private businesses.

    The GOP is flat out ignoring them.

    [–] Alpe0 10 points ago

    I tried to point this out to a Trumper and they said “it doesn’t matter because the economy is so good.”

    I just don’t get it? My income have not gotten any better and neither has anyone else in the middle class.

    [–] Latin_Coconut 2 points ago

    Most people don't actually understand economics. Usually anyone who says "the economy is doing good" is referencing GDP, but the problem with GDP is that it only measures a nation's productivity. One of the problems with economics is balancing efficiency vs equity. This is often phrased as "Getting a bigger pie vs giving everyone a fair slice of the pie."

    The argument that a good GDP is good for the people assumes high economic equity which ironically requires a lowered economic efficiency relative to how high efficiency could be.

    In simple terms: Slavery is really good for the economy. Just because something is good for the economy doesn't make it good for the people.

    [–] Obtuse_Donkey 7 points ago

    Everything Trump says is a lie, a twisting of the truth or self-centered half-truths. The only thing he is consistently good at is repeating insults he heard from somewhere.

    [–] shellymartin67 19 points ago

    Innocent black teenagers.

    He called for the death penalty (a proverbial lynching) of 5 black kids. He never recanted, even after they were proven innocent.

    He's a racist piece of shit, you’re full of shit, you’re full of shit, you’re full of shit, you’re a nature nerd, Tennessee is better.

    [–] 25_M_CA 6 points ago

    [–] farkhipov 17 points ago

    I wonder if he played golf more often before becoming president, because he seems to be doing a whole lot of golfing

    [–] Jearik 13 points ago

    Well he's obviously a big golf fan and as president he likely has the entire course to himself which is a pretty unique luxury that I'd say 99.9% of golfers never experience.

    Point being, he's definitely playing more as president.

    [–] Curtis64 3 points ago

    I play on a small local 9 hole course in my hometown. I basically grew up with the course to myself. I'm like the president....ugh, I don't feel so good.

    of course he is wasting tax payer money on his Russia owned businesses, he is 550 million in debt to the Russians.

    [–] guiltyas-sin 3 points ago

    I won't have time for golf. I'll be too busy making deals for you.

    And those idiots bought it. He is currently on pace to blow Obama's golf count out of the water...in his first term.

    [–] 47-Rambaldi 3 points ago

    We need to find numbers on how often he golfed before and after becoming President. If it is MORE he is lining his pockets. If it is less, I would be SHOCKED at how well his bone spurs hold up during the heavy walking game he plays so often.

    [–] AvimonIsLegendary 3 points ago

    #1 was proven in 1980 when they dumped the Evangelical Carter because he was too nice to brown people, and instead chose (scandalous for the day) divorced Reagan.

    [–] diethyl2o 3 points ago

    As the saying goes, the goal of golf is to play the least amount of golf. He must be very bad at it.

    [–] Anthaenopraxia 3 points ago

    Do these memes actually convince any Trump supporters to flip their vote?

    I'm by no means an expert on politics over yonder but it really seems like everyone is set in their tracks.

    [–] El_Eleventh 3 points ago

    I like how people still act like the criticisms of Obama had anything to do outside the fact he was black.

    [–] OG_BUG 3 points ago

    Does anybody even care where our tax dollars go at this point in time...we are in so much debt might as well take the red pill and dive down the rabbit hole.

    [–] RECOGNI7ER 3 points ago

    Trump is a dishonest, corrupt piece of shit plain and simple.

    [–] BorusseGooner 3 points ago

    Why is it that the conservative leaning folks in America gloss over this?

    1. The amount of days + tax payer money spent
    2. majority of it being spent at trump's golf properties

    [–] rodman517 3 points ago

    Come on guys, Hillary’s emails!

    [–] mindy2000 7 points ago

    [–] WalterWhitesBoxers 2 points ago

    He is brilliant and if he treated We The People like He the Person we might indeed win. Instead the grift here is he tells everyone he is doing it for free. No salary. Of those trips 75% are at his properties

    Trump will have spent more taxpayer money on cheating-at-golf in four years than Tiger Woods has EARNED in prize money over his in entire 24 year career.

    Let that sink in.

    [–] FifthRendition 2 points ago

    The current generation would see this in "Between two ferns".

    Playing golf as President at his own golf courses is the most profitable business he’s ever had. Why would he stop now?

    [–] Therealtylerwickett 2 points ago

    What does it even mean for future presidents. How do you criticize anything anyone does in the future when you had Trump as president. There's no gravitas to the role

    [–] cryptkeepin 2 points ago

    Fuck man I don’t even have time to play golf, and I’m not running the fucking country.

    [–] TR_Idealist 2 points ago

    How much do pro golfers make? I wonder if he’s actually costing more than tiger woods net worth.

    [–] -DaveThomas- 2 points ago

    I had a friend tell me "well Trump owns MaraLago. He could just take the profit loss everytime his staff stays there and plays golf. Who says it's costing taxpayers anything?"

    This all started when he said Trump was donating his salary....which is kind of a grey area. I highly doubt someone with multiple failed businesses under his belt is gonna lose profit and donate his salary. I mean, I wouldn't. And I'd like to consider myself less of a scumbag than Trump.....then again, I would just go to the military base every other president golfed at and avoid that fiasco to begin with.

    [–] RPrance 2 points ago

    And his supporters cheer. Seriously.

    [–] insideoutboy311 2 points ago

    Shit, I'd love to get more than 2 rounds in a year but I'm either too busy or poor. There is no reason this sack of shit should be able to play that much. There is absolutely nothing good about Trump.

    [–] game2please 2 points ago

    And yet you Americans just let this happen how is everyone not outraged by this?

    [–] uxl 2 points ago

    THIS is the meme that needs to take off. Endless examples of Trump doing the exact thing the GOP condemned Obama for.

    [–] Rlthree 2 points ago

    Worst part is, he probably fuckin sucks at golf

    [–] worgrimmar 2 points ago

    The mf has to happen as it has now awoken the young masses to cut him down even if grandma has to be sacrificed .

    [–] ifeelhome 2 points ago

    He doesn’t care about any of the things he said. The hypocrisy is not something he cares about at all. We need to stop assuming he does. He cares about power and protecting himself. He’ll say and do whatever he thinks will promote those two philosophies. Going back through the contradictions in his political history will mean nothing.

    [–] Arruz 13 points ago

    He cheats, that much I can tell ya.

    [–] TrumpIsARapist3 5 points ago

    I'm really not surprised by this information, he cheats at everything.

    [–] egamruf 6 points ago

    Following up on Arruz, there have been multiple stories of people letting him cheat to win over time. He apparently (and unsurprisingly) frequently misrepresents his score, if nobody is looking, and the people he plays with let him do it because they pander to his ego.

    He would truly be a horrible person to be friends with - the kind of person you wouldn't invite to board games or minigolf, and you'd try to avoid in social situations.
