I think the poster meant this in a more general sense (not specifically on golfing) and I agree with him there.

The Trumpskulls aren't very good at math apparently. And they also don't seem to realize the following:

1) Trump raised hell about Obama playing golf and now is at the very least doubling Obama's rate of golf outing and probably quintupling the expense of these outings.

2) Trump said he WOULDN'T be playing golf because he would be working.

Trump's golf addiction -- otherwise known as his work avoidance -- is costing the taxpayer plenty. So far the Secret Service has spent $35,000 on golf cart rentals to protect the President. Wow. Total disregard for the taxpayer!

Secret Service has spent $35,000 on golf cart rentals since inauguration: report | TheHill
They probably rent them at his clubs.

$35,000 for just one quarter's worth of golf carts... if he keeps up the pace, it will be $140,000 per year... $560,000 for 4 years. Over half a million dollars, just for golf carts at maralago.

With "reporting" like this, I don't give them much credibility.

You get a "purchase" order when you PURCHASE (BUY) something, NOT when you RENT something. You get a "rental" receipt.

The again it is CBS.
There is more than one link on this. Find one you approve of.

I think he got confused and really meant that wouldn't be working because he would be playing golf all the time.

More double standards from the msm.
Rented golf carts at Obamas own golf resort? Like for example the ones on military bases?

I swear, you folks are desperate to spin this, but so far every attempt just comes off as pathetic.

More double standards from Trump supporters
This is wrong. This is self enrichment by a president at a fantastic scale, with a clear failure of ethics. And you folks keep trying to somehow justify Trump turning our country into a corrupt banana republic.

What Trump's budget does propose is cutting is the corruption-prone Community Development Block Grant program, run out of Housing and Urban Development. Some, but not all, state and local governments use a tiny portion of that grant money,
The same HUD that bean counters found 500 billion in accounting errors.

But feel free to continue to wallow in ignorance.
