GOP GOP Whining Joe Biden Social Media

GOP Twitter Account Demands Joe Biden Explain Why He Keeps Traveling To Delaware

Republicans never once complained when failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump used to travel to Mar-a-Lago nearly every weekend to play golf and schmooze with members of the resort who had paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for that privilege.

Now, however, with Joe Biden in the White House, the GOP is furious that the current head of state is spending the Christmas and New Year holidays in Delaware, which just so happens to be his home state.

The Republican Party’s official Twitter account fired off this angry missive:

Time for a much-needed comparison.

Since he took office nearly a year ago, President Biden has traveled to Delaware 31 times. During his first year in the White House, Trump’s travel costs were over $13 million, CNBC reported back in 2018:

The president’s non-official travel to rallies and vacations have cost $3.2 million alone since June of 2017.

All told, the president has amassed $13,533,937.28 in total first-year travel costs, the organization found. The government shutdown prevented Trump from making his latest sojourn to Mar-a-Lago, where he was scheduled to headline a fundraiser.

One of Trump’s trips to his Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey cost $15,994 per hour!

Mediaite notes:

According to USA Today, Trump visited his properties 38 times in his first year. He also averaged over a 100 visits to his properties per year, according to Citizens for Ethics. 

The GOP tweet was all it took for social media users to pelt Republicans for their blatant hypocrisy:

In their pathetic attempt to troll President Biden, all the GOP managed to do was remind us why we voted Dotard Donnie out of office.
