It's not easy to sink a thirty foot putt from three feet away.   Give him some credit.

For extra accuracy, substitute "presidency" for "July".
 
2017-07-31 11:58:53 AM  
So every time he plays golf, he does so at one of his own course, right?  And that means that he and his golfing companions plus the Secret Service and private security detail are paying the course to be there.  That makes him money.

In effect, Trump is playing golf and getting paid for it, without all the usual "performance quality" requirements for a competitive golfer.  He's living the dream, I guess.  You know, the dream in which he's the greatest thing ever for our country when in fact he's merely the greatest grifter in our history? That one.

You know, I unintentionally multiply spoken numbers by one hundred easily nine hundred and ninety eight percent of the time, myself.  It's a real problem.

No surprise there.  The country knew before they voted what was at steak.

Maybe he's not playing enough golf.

Have y'all thought of that?  Huh?

How do you know that isn't the solution to his problems?

I'm conflicted.  On the one hand, that's some seriously godawful ad copy.  On the other hand, compared to anything Trump says today, it sounds like Chaucer with Shakespeare in his mouth and when he recites poetry he shoots Shakespeare.

I sincerely wish he played more golf.  Go ahead and play golf 7 days a week.

I'll bet his score was yuuuuge.

Karac: All that success on the golf course tired him out so much he's going to spend two and a half weeks of August recuperating on a golf course.


Yeah, because that will take care of the neurodegenerative disease.  Although it will buy them a couple more weeks of griftin'!
 
2017-07-31 03:34:09 PM  
Update: For example! After this article was posted, someone sent in social-media evidence of Trump playing golf on July 22. We've added it to the graphic and updated our numbers throughout.

Winning!
 
2017-07-31 03:36:13 PM  
I hope there's someone within the accounting department or whatever of the white house who is keeping track of exactly how much taxpayer money is being funneled into Trump businesses by Republican President Donald Trump.

It'll be good to have an objective marker, or "score" that future Republican presidents can aim to beat.
 
2017-07-31 03:38:18 PM  
And now he's going to take August off.
 
2017-07-31 03:41:43 PM  
Being a giant asshole takes a lot out of you. He needs lots of downtime to recharge. LOL

foo monkey: Would you rather him be playing golf or in the White House?


When he's in the White House, all he does is watch TV, tweet, and pit republicans against each other.  When he's playing golf, he's actively shuffling taxpayer money into his own bank accounts.

It's a tough choice, but I think i'll go with 'playing golf, after his impeachment'.

I know you're joking and all, but I've always thought that it must be really tiring.to be so constantly and actively repugnant. I mean, unless you're so other-people-blind that you really don't notice, just the weight of carrying around everyone's dislike of you has got to be exhausting.
 
2017-07-31 03:50:25 PM  
Trump's avarice and incompetence is both his worst and best feature.

He's too dumb to know he's a Russian agent, but its thats same incompetence that makes him so fantastically ineffective as president to the point of sabotaging his own agenda (which is objectively terrible).

So... um... winning?

If you're a sociopath, you feed on that. It energizes you. It's your affirmation that you're a success.

I am mostly joking. I'm guessing being a giant asshole is second nature to him and seems to energize him. What really seems to bum him out is being confronted with evidence of his inferiority, like Obama's inauguration crowds being much bigger and Clinton getting 3 million more votes than him. He compounds his obvious stupidity by fixating on and highlighting these very things as if by repetition he can make everybody else agree with him.

It only works on people even stupider than he, is, ie, Republicans.

I might actually settle for "playing gold", depending upon how much shiat he rains down on Pence.
 
2017-07-31 04:03:25 PM  
I would have been sort of ok with his golf, if he hadn't in the past made such a big deal about the few times Obama relaxed and played golf.

The US President is suffering from Dementia and needs to be removed ... yesterday.

There's no way in gods green earth that Donald wrote that himself. He may have approved it.
 
2017-07-31 04:08:45 PM  
The single greatest accomplishment of the Trump presidency is that he hasn't actually done anything yet.  Just another 3.5 years and this will all be over.  Keep golfing Donnie, it's for the good of the country.

Throw in that the same people that cheered that peanut-gallery sh*t from him back then eat it the hell up that he now golfs and vacations so much because...

Because it sticks it to the libs.

I dunno; it has kind of a "dictated back in less obviously neurologically compromised times" vibe to it.
 
2017-07-31 04:11:57 PM  
shiat, he played more golf than *I* did and I usually get two rounds in a week.  July was an off month for me.

This, it also re-enforces Hair Furor's rampaging Narcissim.

 Other peoples' opinions don't matter so much because they're not really people anyway, as his son pointed out. They're simplay a mark of successful STIGGNIT!!!

It's really easy to feel disgust for everything when you know that your greasy cheeto-smeared mug in the mirror is the Best Thing You'll See All Day.

Fun times.   Yet again I reiterate the call for extreme vetting of all candidates running for federal office. The last year has done far too much harm to our nation.

There's this one for golf - http://trumpgolfcount.com/
Then the one for "Is he at Mar-a-lago?" - https://istrumpatmaralago.org/
Or the one for Bedminster? - https://www.istrumpatbedminster.org/

Nothing I've seen yet for all the other conflicts of interest.

Many people might view this as hypocrisy by Trump, but if you read it carefully, you can see it as aspirational and the genesis of a great scheme.

When Trump gets a ship named after him will he charge the US Navy for the use of his name?
Will it have gold plated fixtures in the heads?

Despite all that practice... he's not even a very good golfer.
