It's unclear what Trump will do at the course.

A guy who likes golfing so much he's played dozens of rounds in the past six months spends the day at a golf course, and it's "unclear" what he's doing there? No, it's crystal farking clear what he's doing there: playing a goddamn round of golf!

I said this when Obama was president, and I'll say it now that Donald is president: golfing and engaging in other recreational activities is just fine for a president. They're effectively on duty 24/7/365. When they are on the golf course, they are on duty. When they are opening Hanukkah presents with their kids, they are on duty. When they are asleep, they are on duty. Golfing is no problem.

That said, Donald tries to cover up just how much he golfs. That cover up is a big problem.

This is true, the POTUS is always on duty. However there are proactive and reactive parts to the job. Reactive is always on duty, reacting to crises, etc. But proactive is only working when the POTUS is engaged and in Washington. Working with the staff to push legislation. Developing contacts in other countries to help serve US interests, and a thousand other things.

I've been thinking about this since I heard him tell the Senate... "frankly, I don't think we should leave town unless we have a health insurance plan"

That will probably make the senators more angry at him than anything else.

I imagine it's on par with a snotty 15-year-old sneaking into an NFL locker room and telling all the million dollar athletes "Its simple. We need to get some points on the board!"

You've nailed the gist of it, though, all kidding aside - he believes himself to be the CEO, in which he can order his subordinates to perform actions that he, himself, does not feel obligated to perform with them. He's not leading by example, because he believes he leads by authority.

He doesn't understand that Congress is an equal partner, just like the Supreme Court, in this government with him, and so he treats Congress like the secretarial pool of a company during the 60's - they're there to do what he tells them to do. It's appalling in isolation, but, wait - it gets worse!

Pincy: He also wouldn't look like a farking hypocrite if he hadn't criticized Obama for the same thing.


Exactly - he's not just a bullshiat artist, but a farking hypocrite as well! He campaigned in part on claiming that he would've stayed in the Oval Office and gotten shiat done compared to Obama, yet he's made Dubya look like a goddamned trooper by comparison. Since taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, Mr. Trump has reportedly been on the grounds of his golf courses 42 times since becoming President, and that's as of July 23 - he's spent almost a quarter of his total days in office at a golf course, and that's just in the first six goddamned months of office. (When the Golf Network makes fun of you for golfing, it's time to stop, Donnie.) He's putting Dubya to shame and making Obama look like the hardest-working man in political show business.
