Although this volume is confusing in terms of timeline, location distance, and story arrangement, it was a nice break from having too much all at once, having unanswered questions, and too much action. It gave us character development and backstory, and what Salem’s goals are for the fall of Beacon. It was a break to show us the comparison of the team RWBY before and after, and how each of them grew.
Donald Trump regularly assailed President Barack Obama for playing golf, then spent the first weekends of his own presidency doing just that. He attacked Obama for using Air Force One to campaign, and did it over the weekend just a month into the job. He mocked Obama for heading out of Washington at taxpayer expense, but appears to have no qualms about doing so himself.
One month in, Trump is using the presidency to boost his political and personal goals — not breaking laws or ethics rules, experts say, but disputing his past criticisms and vows.
“Donald Trump has zero worry about contradicting himself, because he does it all day long,” said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian who has met with Trump. “He figures he can get away with it because he does it all the time. There is no worry about it. He says one thing and then says another, and his supporters don’t hold it against him.”
The new president has taken three weekend getaways in the first month of office, spending millions of taxpayer dollars in Secret Service protection and about 25 percent of his time away from the White House. The Secret Service has also paid for security for expensive business trips for his sons’ business ventures to foreign countries.
The actions seem to fly in the face of how he mocked Obama’s travel. “President Barack Obama’s vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars — unbelievable!” he wrote in one of many tweets criticizing Obama for taking a trip.
