President Donald Trump absolutely loves patting himself on the back. No matter what he does, he wants and expects to be applauded and praised for it, no matter how inconsequential it may have been.
Such is the case with his so-called “donation” of his presidential salary to various U.S. government agencies, which he has repeatedly trumpeted all over social media.
Once again Monday evening, Trump was in full self-congratulatory mode, showing off the check he just wrote to the Department of Homeland Security:
While the press doesn’t like writing about it, nor do I need them to, I donate my yearly Presidential salary of $400,000.00 to different agencies throughout the year, this to Homeland Security. If I didn’t do it there would be hell to pay from the FAKE NEWS MEDIA! pic.twitter.com/xqIGUOwh4x

How generous of him, huh? He’s making a mint off his Washington, D.C. hotel and selling his crap merchandise online, but we’re supposed to praise him for kicking back a few bucks to the government he’s fleecing every chance he gets.
Let the well-deserved mocking begin:
Wait. How many millions have we paid for your golf?
How many millions have you made with the Secret Service staying at your properties?

Homeland Security $100,000.00. Stormy Daniels $130,000.00.

It costs approx $200k an hour to run Air Force One and it’s a 2+ hour trip to FLA. Yep. Your math checks out.

Show us your tax returns. Then we will see whether you donate your salary and how much is your income from Trump hotels, foreign governments and good buddies in coal and oil industry.

Keep your salary. Pay for your almost-weekly golf outings from your own pocket.

Donations just don’t have that same feel when you announce doing it to avoid negative press, while also expecting a pat on the back. Just sayin.

YES, YES – We are familiar with your check writing for all kinds of reasons.

Do you donate your salary from Putin, too?

Perhaps at this year’s White House Easter egg roll, Donald can hand out nickels and dimes to the children, then order them to bow and kiss his shoes.
