Donald Trump plans to build a helicopter pad at Mar-A-Lago. Your tax dollars at work.

Courtesy of the Daily Mail: 

President Donald Trump is constructing a helicopter landing pad on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago. 

The president is building the landing spot at his private club so that he can fly there directly on Marine One from the nearby airport in Palm Beach instead of landing at the airport and traveling there by motorcade, according toPage Six. 

The logistical hassle of getting Trump to Mar-a-Lago appears to be the motivation behind the Marine One helipad. 

Until now, Trump has flown Air Force One to Palm Beach International Airport and then taken his presidential motorcade. 

The president's limo and Marine One, whose fleet numbers around 35 helicopters, are transported to wherever the president is traveling by Air Force military transport carriers like the C-17 Globemaster III or the C-5 Galaxy. 

At Mar-a-Lago, construction posts are now seen at the site, where a 50-foot-wide dirt pit has been dug up on the west lawn. 

Okay first off why is Trump constantly going to Mar-A-Lago in the first place?

And secondly why do WE have to pay for a helipad to make it easier for him?

Add this cost to the millions taxpayers are already spending to allow his family to safely live in New York, and the security required while Trump hobnobs with his guests at Mar-A-Lago and this extravagance is now becoming obscene.

    He does not want to see protesters on his route to and from the airport. Please let this nightmare END.

    Don’ t they have budget for his manic? What next? A yacht in NY harbor?

    The locals are already complaining that the airport is shut down every weekend because of him., this isn’t going to change anything.

    He just wants a helicopter pad and we are paying for it. He was bragging he was going to save us money because he didn’t want Airforce One, liar. DISGUSTING.

    What other renovations is he doing at taxpayers expense?

    Don't forget security for dumb and dumber's BUSINESS trips.

    This whole #45 Russian/Putin/Bannon is not just headache inducing; it dangerous for 90% of us. It will get resolved. We can help by voting out the left-over teapeople, small c Evangelicals, and those 'conservative' who wish it was America prior to 1950. We owe it to ourselves, our children, our communities to vote in Democrats for 2018. Register and vote local, county, and state. That seems the very least that any of us can do for ourselves and America.

    Of course it takes courage to carry on anyhow. Courage matters and it is crucial precisely now.

    OK. First off... the President can go wherever he wants to.
    Secondly: WE have to pay for it because we're taxpayers and, like it or not, Donald Trump is the President of the United States.
    Yes, it costs us taxpayers millions...
    but that's peanuts
    don't take your eye off of the ball, don't get distracted from the real crime taking place:

    'Okay first off why is Trump constantly going to Mar-A-Lago in the first place?'

    -Easy. Because he *can*. Because enough taxpayers and fellow (R) politicians let him GET AWAY WITH IT. Remember the howling and outrage over the vacations and golf outings that the Obamas had? Nary a peep *now* about Drumpf traipsing down *every* weekend on OUR dime to Mar-a-Lago, AND the exorbitant cost of keeping Malaise up there in the Gilded Tower when she should be tending to her duties at the Executive Mansion in D.C.! OUTRAGEOUS WASTE!!!


    'And secondly why do WE have to pay for a helipad to make it easier for him?'

    -Because, Gryphen, heaven FORBID he should have to see a protestor's sign while on the way in to Mar-a-Lago. And flying in by helicopter is quicker, and more executive-like. /s

      OT?" his administration could reverse itself and is open to granting legal status to undocumented immigrants in the U.S. who do not have a record of violent crimes. “The time is right for an immigration bill as long as there is compromise on both sides,”Dreamers—undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as young children—could be granted a pathway to citizenship."

    Obama put mustard on a burger once. It was a bigger scandal than this useless fat fuck raiding the public's wallet for his own personal multi-million-dollar capital works on his own personal property.

    But the people of Palm Beach will be happy. They were sick of him riding around in a motorcade with a stick up his ass being nothing but a pest and fouling up the traffic every weekend out of his sheer laziness (doesn't work at the weekends) and self-importance.

  13. I'm not sure I believe the ass can be that big without some girdle or device at least attempting to reduce how much gut we typically see.

    As wince-inducing as this is, the realization that Melania has experienced it with no attempts at any camouflage explains fully why she's so seldom pictured smiling when she isn't publicly speaking herself. I read somebody this week on Facebook said, "Marry for money and you'll earn every penny." Hard to quarrel.

    Trump should pay for the helicopter pad himself. He has a pal with a dubious business background who sells or rents helicopters. Trump could use it after his presidency (the sooner the better) to ferry his uber-rich friends to his golf course and charge them plenty for the use of his pad.

    First, I have nothing good to say about Trump and his antics, but I also live in Palm Beach County where Mar-a-Lago is located. His almost weekly visits are very disruptive (traffic gridlock), and since S. Florida is the aviation training capitol in the US, the grounding of all private aviation in a 50 mile radius for the duration of his visit reeks havoc on the industry.

    The positive side of the helipad will be the elimination of the traffic gridlock inflicted upon the area when major roads and interstate in the area are shut down for his motorcade.

    How will it make life easier, if the roads and airport are still closed?
    Noise is fine as long as it is little donnie making it.
    =================================
    From DM
    Club members say that while the landing pad is an eyesore, it will make life easier.

    'Even if you live a block away, it can take an hour and a half to get into the club when Trump's in town, with all the security and extra traffic,' one member told Page Six.

    Still, the Secret Service will impose road closures whenever the president is in town – even if he travels to Mar-a-Lago via helicopter.

    Local officials approved the helipad, though they added one stipulation – it can only be used for presidential business, and it must be removed once Trump is out of office.

    The irony of Trump gaining approval for use of a helicopter at Mar-a-Lago is that he twice sued Palm Beach because of the noise generated by airplanes taking off and landing at the nearby airport.

    One lawsuit was settled, while the other lawsuit was dropped after Trump assumed the presidency.
