    How much do they pay security when he's just sitting in the White House, not going anywhere?
    How much does it typically cost any President to go to normal President type functions outside the White House?

    Frankly, I do think it's a little weird we pay these guys to watch an ex-President of either party.

    They have to guard the whitehouse no matter what.

    I am sure you can see that obama and W both might have some intelligence an enemy might want. Even GHWB could have something worth kidnapping him over.

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
    - Robert J. Hanlon.

    There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.

    And if a statue can oppress you, then I submit that you have greater issues. - A West.

    I'm not saying he shouldn't travel, but the excuse that living large is just what he is used to is dumb.

    BTW, as I remember the Clintons were roasted over sleeping in separate bedrooms, how is it that no one cares that the first lady doesn't even want to be in the same city as the president?
    Trump is not taking a salary, therefore, he IS savng us money.


    Winning! So much winning!
