Another vacation?  After he harangued Congress to stay in session to finish the health care bill?

I'm beginning to think Mr. Trump might be a hypocrite.
 
2017-08-03 12:15:35 PM  
Fine with me. He'll be all rested up for another round of firings.
 
2017-08-03 12:19:39 PM  
Don't you have to accrue vacation days?
 
2017-08-03 12:29:58 PM  
As far as I'm concerned, the less he does, the better.
Hopefully the next 17 days will be drama free.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Don't you have to accrue vacation days?


What?

He's been accumulating them for years and years of working hard to make Fifth Avenue more great again....or more orange, anyway.   Never took a day off in the last 30 years.

Are you saying now that he's working this part-time government job as a senior -- on a fixed income no less! -- that he can't take a break now and then?  He's a grandpa on Social Security, you fiend.
 
2017-08-03 12:31:41 PM  
Only 17 days?  sounds like he cut his vacation short. I heard it was going to be the entire month of August.
 
2017-08-03 12:35:11 PM  
It is slightly comforting to know that his entire vacation will be spent in a paranoid delusional hellscape of his own creation, constantly feeling obligated to respond to every single negative news story that comes out during those 17 days.
I am hoping some of the larger turds that the news agencies have been sitting on at the request of the IC end up breaking during his vacation.
Hell if we could get 1 major story a day it would be amazing.  Just to make sure he doesn't get a single moment of relaxation.
Knowing our luck there will be a natural disaster or he will start a distraction war, fark this timeline.

You people were so excited when we got IDGAF Obama, Trump starts off in IDGAF mode and you lose your minds.
 
2017-08-03 12:51:18 PM  
It stopped being funny a while ago, but there is a Trump tweet for everything.

Also, lets hope he thinks its an actual vacation where he doesn't have to do anything.
 
2017-08-03 12:51:36 PM  
It's fine, it's not like anything bad happened when GWB took an extended vacation in the summer of 2001 and missed intelligence briefings.
 
2017-08-03 01:05:52 PM  
There's no possible chance that he manages to go 17 days without tweeting something stupid. I doubt he'll manage 17 hours.

If I didn't know better I'd say that Trump pulled up a copy of every tweet he wrote attacking Obama and is going down the list checking them off one at a time.
 
2017-08-03 01:14:02 PM  
He earned this one...

Is there any action that Trump has taken that he HASN'T contradicted in an earlier tweet?  I love it.

To be scrupulously fair to the President, it looks like at least some of this particular vay-cay is involuntary:

Trump's trip in early August could partially be related to the fact that the government is replacing the heating and cooling system in the White House's West Wing, so everyone who works there will need to leave by the end of the week, according to the AP.

The WH, in Aug, with no AC?   Yeah, wouldn't even wish that on him

But trump is like a smart person. He doesn't need more intelligence from deep state egg heads.
 
2017-08-03 01:24:12 PM  
For those worried about terrorist attacks while he vacations, don't. You don't ever roll out a big media product in the summer, you wait 'til everyone comes back from vacation in September.

I would absolutely wish it on Trump.  It wouldn't kill him, just make him hilariously miserable.  Besides, if you exposed him to that for a few days he might just go sprinting back to the Paris agreement.
 
2017-08-03 01:25:53 PM  
I hope he enjoys it so much he decides being president isn't worth it.

Go enjoy some KFC and golfing Mr. Trump.

A real President would move to an underutilized post office/hotel in DC as a temporary office. And pay for any WH Staff to stay there overnight.

Prediction time farkers.

He sees the writing on the wall. He's going to his safe space. Something will drop soon and he'll be forced to quit. Like the old inuit man floating off to sea on a chunk of ice to die. We could have a new President by the end of August.

There's a difference between

BN S3: "Sir, we have to lock in the venue for your Change of Command, do you want field X or field Y?"

BN CDR: "Don't care. shiats a stupid waste of time anyway and the Brigade CDR is just going to change it to fark with me anyway. Wife and I are flying out to Hawaii at 1400 though so make sure the ceremony ends by 1100."

Versus

BN S3: "Sir we haven't finished locking things down for the BN LFX this fall, we still need, your input on a lot of things."

BN CDR: "Taking two weeks of leave."

BN S3: "Sir we just did your Change of Command two months ago."

BN CDR: "Wanna golf."

BN S3: "Sir we still haven't received your mission intent"

BN CDR: "Turning blackberry off, see you in September."

It's a stupid thing to nitpick on a joke, but that's not what a fixed income means.

I wonder if that's just an excuse? If Bannon or Kushner or whoever is just trying to get him away from things, so maybe he'll stop farking incriminating himself for a few weeks.
