Donald Trump is, of course, golfing at the end of the world. With only 85 days in office, and already talk of nuclear war and Mother-of-all-Bombs, Trump has been golfing 18 days and eight out of 13 weekends.
Not that there’s anything wrong with a president enjoying a game of golf—Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter sure did.
In fact, it wasn’t so long ago that Trump was harassing about Obama’s swing on Twitter…
President Obama should have gone to Louisiana days ago, instead of golfing. Too little, too late!

President Obama has a major meeting on the N.Y.C. Ebola outbreak, with people flying in from all over the country, but decided to play golf!

Can you believe that,with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf.Worse than Carter

But apparently when Donald hits the green, everything is okay!
Look, golfing can be a lot of fun and relaxation is part of a man’s relaxation. But if Donald Trump gets any more “relaxed” this year, he’s going to need compression socks or something. He seems to be posting on Twitter more time than he spends running the country and smoothing things over with world leaders he’s offended.
And Secret Service has to pay for all those golf trips too. So far they have spent $35,185 on golf car rentals in Palm Beach County alone since inauguration day, according to CBS News.
Naturally, the cheap bastard has to play at his own Trump brand clubs in Florida, particularly at the Mar-a-Lago luxury resort. And his hypocritical golfing leisure time (which may well set a record for any president by the time this is over) is not helping to calm America’s anxieties over bombs, nuclear war and Russian conspiracies.
When is this fool going to get to work, anyway?
