This past weekend was Easter, so of course, that means that America taxpayers spent another $1 million + for Donald Trump to go to Mar-A-Lago. This time, though, we likely paid a lot more, since the Trump family held an insanely expensive Easter celebration at the posh Palm Beach resort – including an Easter egg hunt that people were only granted access to with an invitation.
In order to keep up his street cred with the hard-right Republican Christian base, Trump went to an Easter church service at Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea. Also in attendance were Melania, Tiffany, Barron, and the First Hooker’s parents. After the for-show church attendance, the Trumps went back to Mar-A-Lago, where they had brunch waiting for them on our dime. Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr, and their families were in attendance there as well. Trump tried to be cheery with one tweet amongst the flurry of ridiculous, seemingly war-making and election re-hashing tweets that peppered the Man-Baby-in-Chief’s Twitter feed on Sunday morning:
Happy Easter to everyone!

Nobody with good sense is fooled by any of this, though. Trump isn’t religious in the slightest; his own behavior shows it. In fact, he was booted off the rolls of his own Presbyterian church in New York during the campaign due his disgusting, un-Christ-like behavior on the campaign trail. This was all for show, and, as per usual, we’re paying for it. Further, they should be trying to cobble together the White House Easter Egg Roll, which is shaping up to be a disaster for the first time in the history of the event.
Donald Trump – stay at the White House where you belong. You wanted this job. Now do it, and stop wasting our money being a billionaire and trying to play at being president. You’re no good at either. All you’re good for is embarrassing the nation, lying to your brainwashed, sycophantic fan base, and endangering the republic and the world. You and your disgraceful family need to just go away.
