CBS Harps on Trumps’ Vacation, Excused Obama’s Fun


[See NewsBusters for more.] CBS This Morning’s Major Garrett on Monday chided Donald Trump for taking an August vacation, highlighting how long he’s been away from the White House and digging up the businessman's old tweets about Barack Obama’s trips. Yet, the very same network excused and defended Obama’s excursions. Guest co-host Margaret Brennan scolded, “The President has spent 44 of his first 200 days in office away from the White House. At the same point in his presidency, Barack Obama had spent 21 days outside the White House.” Garrett complained, “Mr. Trump's summer travel is predicted to cost the township of Bedminster [New Jersey] more than $300,000.”
