Political trip way out of bounds

Whoopee for us — the president of the entire U.S. is in Seattle to fund raise for the Democrats. At the taxpayers’ expense. Not only is he wasting my tax dollars on his fund-raising for his party, he is inconveniencing everyone in the Seattle area, but who cares? He is killing our economy, our medical care and allowing Iran to continue with their world threat of nuclear weapons, but, gee, he needs to raise money for his political party. This is outrageous and it is time to say so.
