Who Would Not Want to Go to Camp David

I guess I could get bored at Camp David, but from what I have seen so far it seems like a pretty cool place to spend a weekend. I will say it does seem like more of a place for an athletic President as opposed to one who just wants to lounge around. However, it does seem like Camp David could be a decent place to spend three or four days every week.

4. There is a putting green but no 18 hole golf course

and it's not encrusted with gilt and marble in true nouveau riche style. I'm sure he finds it overly rustic and simply not up to his standards.

21. Somehow I dont see DT as any kind of outdoorsman or even as

someone who would enjoy that environment. To him, land is only valuable if it's being developed. The beauty of nature is more than likely lost on him.

37. The woods in the Appalachian areas in spring shows beauty and richness beyond measure ......

..... as long as the invasive species haven't over run the area. But to somebody like Trump
it is like trying to teach physics to a labrador retiever.

The forest floor can be thick w/spring beauties ...




and if you are very lucky you can see a spring beauty mining bee. These little insects only uses
the spring beauty and is only around for 3 to 4 weeks but it is part of the ecology.

Trump sees flowers as roses by the door to one of his tacky ass gulf places.

AT 10, Barron is not. I'm not sure if Daddy Dearest will live long enough to see his youngest son graduate college.

20. Malaria

could put on a peasant blouse and love beads, go barefoot and peddle her newfound "natural" alternatives to actual health care. Donald could go on a snipe hunt. Qusay and Uday could build a tree fort and shoot squirrels with slingshots. Ivanka and Tiffany, hang around the old swimming hole.

11. I would love to go there...

it seems like a very relaxing and contemplative place.

I wonder if Trump ever spends a couple of hours without human interaction, sans TV (i.e. people who he can bully/prop him up). His head would probably explode.

12. It's not opulent enough for the drumpfs.

No gold fixtures or Louis-whatever furnishings. I doubt if they own outdoorsy-type clothing.

It looks really gorgeous there in the winter! And springtime must be magical. Their loss.

17. "Were going broke": West Palm Beach business owners want Trump to spend weekends somewhere else



http://www.rawstory.com/2017/03/were-going-broke-west-palm-beach-business-owners-want-trump-to-spend-weekends-somewhere-else/

NBC News reported that Trump’s weekend visits were not only expensive for the taxpayers, but the safety measures implemented by the Secret Service are also costing local business owners big.

“We’re basically going broke,” a spokesperson for Southern Helicopter told NBC News. “We were not expecting him to come down almost every weekend.”

Jonathan Miller, the president of Stellar Aviation Group, worried that his business would go under if Trump continued to make Mar-a-Lago his weekend destination. Miller estimated that he is losing $30,000 each weekend because of Trump.

Additionally, the taxpayers of Palm Beach County are already on the hook for $1.7 million in extra security, and the White House has so far ignored requests to reimburse the county.

I don't see how you could suggest that President Trump should make that sacrifice.

22. Because it was 32 F in Thurmont, MD, which is very near to Camp David

 

Camp David itself is located on the wooded hills of Catoctin Mountain Park, so it may even be colder then 32F depending how much higher up it is.

I'd go to Florida too, since Palm Beach was a pleasant 70F today.

24. No added income for him for housing Secret Service and staff.

Why stay in a government-owned facility when you can be gouging that government for security, lodging, communications upgrades, a new heliport, and all the rest of the crap that he is making money from when he stays at Mar-A-Loco?

30. When I was a kid I did not have

toy limousines, I had toy dump trucks and bulldozers.

I'm 71 now and have never ridden in a limousine, nor do I want to. But operating dump trucks and bulldozers is still fun.

Poor Barron will probably grow up to be as unhappy and unfulfilled as his father.

Return to Green Acres or The Simple Life II.

Tonights Episode:Malaria breaks heel on her stiletto hiking boots. Qusay mistakes Uday for a bear, shoots him in the ass. Groper Don finds feral mountain girl, gives her KellyAnnes job.
