    This appearance came while there were TWO Ebola cases in the US...



    What's that Trump campaign slogan? Oh yeah, "Promises made, promises kept"...



    Meanwhile, Trump today...

    The Sterling course is struggling and needed to generate some cart rental revenue.

    Wow, this is major!

    Maybe everybody should just take a deep breath and give it a rest for a day or two. Trump played golf. Big fvckin' deal. How do people even sleep at night? Seems like you'd be glad he's not in front of a camera or a microphone . . .

    Yeah, I get why you're so defensive and bummed after hitching your wagon to such a massive disaster and complete failure of a President. But, it doesn't have to be about you. Trump reaps what he sowed. It doesn't have to reflect badly upon you unless you make it so.

    It's cute the way that you know it's about the hypocrisy, and yet you pretend not to know it.

    LOL. Hypocrisy in a politician. That's a new one.

    What's cute is the constant paroxysms of tear-out-your-hair and pull-out-your-fingernails rage over every single little thing. It's tiresome, redundant and juvenile. Trump is Trump. Beat him at the damn ballot box. But, in the meantime, this constant little-girl foot-stamping is pathetic.

    I thought Trump's calling card was that he's NOT a politician? Are you saying he lied and conned all of those folks who voted for the "non-politician?

    Why shouldn’t he have played golf? Is there one good reason?

    Preach it my man. And don’t forget, was it illegal for Trump to play golf?

    This clip revises a question many people have wondered about. Just how many compromising photos of Lindsey has Rudy G "acquired" from his "sources"?

    President Donald Trump paid tribute to fallen members of the American military on Monday to mark Memorial Day while defending his decision to spend most of the holiday weekend playing golf as the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus outbreak neared 100,000.

    "Some stories about the fact that in order to get outside and perhaps, even a little exercise, I played golf over the weekend. The Fake & Totally Corrupt News makes it sound like a mortal sin - I knew this would happen!," Trump tweeted, saying this was the first time he had played in nearly three months."

    Can you imagine the outrage from the Fox Morning stooges had the Ebola death count been 100,000 instead of ZERO?

    Exactly. We should be more concerned with the buffoons incompetence, criminality, very low intelligence and love of Putin.

    It's not that big of a deal in isolation. But, in isolation, it illustrates his hypocrisy. Defend it if you wish. We all see it.

    Are you serious?
    Why can't they eat the cake?

    I know, I know, I shouldn't have wasted my time to respond to this ridiculous question, but as they say, I couldn't help it.
    BTW, CO, please don't respond.

    None. Nor was there a good reason why any other president should.

    So Sat and Sun Trump played golf. Today he attacked an actual veteran- misspelled his name and lied about his record. I don't think this sort of tweet will go over well in PA, but I guess we'll see...

    Tweet!

    Why not?
    He did the same in 2016 and got elected. The Pubs are very good at forgiving their own and absolutely unforgiving Democrats for the same crime/misbehaving.

    Remember how they castigated Obama's golfing. Not a word has been said on Trump doing the worse behavior/action. Furthermore, while I am not 100% sure, he is golfing at a club he owns, which means that he makes money for playing golf at our expense. Isn't double-dealing a federal crime? If not, it should be.

    I would say there is a huuuuge difference.

    I think you are correct. Of course the question is why do so many find this kind of "entertainment" important in any way.

    As a concerned taxpayer, spending $134M on golfing in three years does not seem fiscally conservative. And is the POTUS profiting off of these golf trips? Seems a bit unethical.

    "seem" seems like a gross understatement! I've read somewhere it is close to 340. Yes, he is taking gross profit (from our tax money) for his "unselfish" enjoyment. Didn't he also criticize Obama spending a fraction of what Trump is spending in this regard?

    What a gross hyporcrite this man is as are his supporters! :(

    Because:

    https://www.cnn.com/election/2020/presidential-polls

    Click the link and pick a state, say, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio. Weren't those the ones that put the idiot over the top the last time?
