From The Hill

John Bowden of The Hill wrote:President Trump has spent more in taxpayer dollars on his frequent trips to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida than special counsel Robert Mueller's office has spent on the Russia investigation so far.

The president has repeatedly attacked the Mueller probe for racking up millions of dollars in expenditures, doing so most recently this week after the Justice Department reported that the special counsel's office had spent roughly $16.7 million on expenses in just over a year of investigation.

"A.P. has just reported that the Russian Hoax Investigation has now cost our government over $17 million, and going up fast. No Collusion, except by the Democrats!" Trump tweeted Friday.

But that number is dwarfed by the amount required to pay for the president's numerous trips to the "Winter White House," which Washington Post and Politico analyses have estimated to cost taxpayers on average between $1 million and $3 million dollars per trip.

As of Dec. 26, Trump had spent 39 days at Mar-a-Lago in 2017. Trump took his 17th trip to the property in April, according to Town and Country magazine.

The figure also comes in spite of Trump's frequent attacks aimed at his predecessor, former President Barack Obama.

Trump, who has been criticized for his frequent outings to Trump properties, particularly golf courses, has invoked his own criticism of Obama's golfing trips on numerous occasions. Trump surpassed the pace of Obama's golf outings, making 56 total trips so far compared to Obama's 37 at the same point in his presidency, according to Politifact.

A White House spokeswoman claimed last year that despite Trump's fondness for golf, his visits to Mar-a-Lago have been "work" excursions.

"He is not vacationing when he goes to Mar-a-Lago. The president works nonstop every day of the week, no matter where he is," a White House spokeswoman said in February.

Sure he does.  That's why when weekends come around, he's at the "Winter White House" and there on the taxpayers dime.

Remember, ladies and gentlemen, this is the same guy who said during his campaign that he wouldn't have time for golf.  Not only did he have time for golf, it's usually at his private golf resorts.  And just to jog everyone's memory, the price for anyone to go to Mar-a-Lago has gone up.  And who's paying for it?  We are.

So the next time Trump lies about his golf habits, and says Obama played golf more during his presidency than Trump has in his time in office, remember these numbers: 56 and 37.  Obama has put in 37 golf trips at this point in his eight years in office.  Trump has hit the links 56 times.

The numbers don't lie, but you-know-who does.

Just saying
