I will note that President Donald John Trump played his first round of golf on February 4, 2017, while taking a quick vacation to his estate in Florida:

I have a feeling President Trump will be a very active golfing president. I seem to recall that many posters herein felt aggrieved at former President Obama playing golf. I am sure they will feel the same way now.

I guess the Liberals are right, he's just not normal...
Donald Trump's Secrets and Hypocrisy ... About Golf | The Huffington Post

You are mistaken, not only does Trump play MORE golf, he also cheats.

"Since becoming president, Trump has played a lot of golf. Specifically, he has made six trips to the golf course in 30 days. This has caused some people to suggest Trump might be a hypocrite. "

So far he has flown down to Florida every weekend and burned more money in one month than Obama in one year. And yes, golfing has been common.

Looks like it may be 6 rounds during his first 4 weeks in office. But naturally, they won't tell the truth about it.

1) The president works while vacationing.

2) Trump does go golfing. Quite a bit actually.

3) As I said with Obama, when golfing, the president is working. Therefore, when Trump is golfing, he's working.

I think he's a **** president, but I'll defend him from dumbass criticisms like "hur dur, golf course" just as I did with Obama. Because the criticism is a dumbass criticism. There's a long list of strong arguments against Trump. You don't need an idiotic argument that isn't even accurate.

At least to me, the issue is the hypocrisy, not the golf.




President Trump just played his first round of golf. How does that compare to Obama? | For The Win

Bankruptcy?

Apparently it was 4 times, not 6.

How is Donald Trump Able to File for Bankruptcy So Many Times?

Bill Gates filed for bankruptcy.



But that's ok, right?

Bill Gates Files For Chapter 7 Bankruptcy | Empire News

American Airlines filed for bankruptcy. Still around.

Lehman Bros. filed for bankruptcy. Still around.

Enron (another Clinton scandal) filed for bankruptcy. Not around.

Trump? It's not like he owns it all, and there is a risk/cost to doing business on ANY level. Then the economy cycles...so many factors.

There is a REASON there are different levels (chapters) of filing in bankruptcy court. They were set up the way they were for a REASON.

Something liberals just can't seem to wrap their minds around b/c they never took a macro or micro econ class.

Trump tweating about beheading is rather odd. Has he ever given up golfing for a few days in memory of the people who have beheaded by terrorists? Daniel Pearl was cruelly beheaded.

Or does Pearl's beheading not count because he was a part of the media and Trump thinks all they do is report fake news?
