As millions of Americans were stranded thanks to canceled flights, Biden jetted off on taxpayers’ dime to St. Croix.
Where is the outrage about Joe Biden going on a nice tropical vacation while the country suffers through a “polar vortex bomb cyclone?” Remember what they did to Ted Cruz? And to add to the hypocrisy, from the ‘You Couldn’t Make It Up’ department: the $1.7 trillion omnibus Bill was flown to the Virgin Island so he could sign it.

But as it turns out, Biden has spent a large portion of his presidency on vacation.
By August 2022: Biden’s 49th visit to the First State since entering the White House in January 2021 and brought the number of days he spent in Delaware to 150, according to an unofficial count by former CBS News reporter Mark Knoller — who is respected among the White House press corps for his keeping of presidential statistics. Knoller’s tally also showed that former President Donald Trump had spent a total of 132 days between his Mar-a-Lago resort, which he visited 17 times, and his golf club in Bedminster, NJ, where he traveled 13 times.
In August, the first family stayed for free at the nine-bedroom oceanfront estate in South Carolina owned by Democratic donor Maria Allwin, the widow of hedge fund founder James Allwin.
The president interrupted his vacation for one day to return to the White House on Aug. 16 and sign the Inflation Reduction Act. On this trip he had the Omnibus Act sent to him to sign.
At Thanksgiving, the Bidens spent Thanksgiving at the Nantucket home of a private-equity billionaire, David Rubenstein, as they have done previously. The buyout tycoon’s Nantucket spread spans 13 acres and is worth a reported $20 million.
Federal Election Commission records show more than $10,000 in contributions in 2020 by “William” Neville and Connie Neville from the Virgin Islands to Biden for President, the Biden Victory Fund, as well as contributions to the campaigns of various Republican and Democratic candidates over the years.
