WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Trump spent seven hours this weekend at Trump International Golf Club here, where a crisp breeze and cloudless skies beckoned golf lovers to the manicured 27-hole course.Did he play any golf?“Very little,” Mr. Trump told reporters traveling with him on Sunday on Air Force One back to Washington, recounting what he said had been a busy weekend of meetings to sell the health care bill and strategize about the nuclear threat from North Korea. The White House refused to provide any details.
I actually don´t care whether a President plays golf, runs, chops wood, reads, or watches tv in their free time. I care whether the president is doing his job. Trump seems to be working longer hours than most presidents. His Cabinet appointees seem to be very busy too. I don´t remember reading about who President Obama golfed with hardly any of the time. Also, the problem with President Obama was his general laziness (at least that is how he appeared to be) and also with specific instances when he golfed like when he decided to go golfing while the country was reeling from a beheading of an American journalist. It was unbecoming.
They certainly didn´t care that Smidgen spent almost a year of his presidency (18 holes, plus travel, etc takes up the better part of a day) playing golf or the fact that he played a lot of that golf with a homosexual pedophile.
Not to mention that, if he did play golf, Trump also held meetings in the evenings afterward. Smidgen most likely went back to wherever he was staying and had a choom party.
Ya know, if I were the President, a lot of things would happen WITHOUT the dang press being anywhere near...they obviously don´t like him and are out to get him, so put them in the basement and ignore them...those of us who voted for President Trump, know he is working to accomplish what we put him in office to do. Drain the swamp.
The press is smarting about his (and now Tillerson’s) having cut back on his surveillance by them. No fodder for their criticism and gossip. Oh, me! What to do? Write speculative stuff, laced with innuendo like “shrouds time at his clubs in mystery”.
To make it worse, most agree with him. We don’t need fake media coverage of every breath he takes, every move he makes.
Noted, #2 and #9. It would appear someone wants the vaunted New York Times to again become the newspaper of record. Here´s a news flash from OTHER than the NYT: Presidential golf hasn´t been news since Eisenhower played it.
Bumbama used 32 golf carts for his foursome at MidPacific Golf Club where he played at least 16 times during the last eight years in Kailua. Also the Club was closed to all members and a full staff was on hand to "serve" the world´s greatest fraudster. Put that in your Times and smoke it!!
If I still had hair, I´d be tearing it out over at arrogance of "journalettes" like this one. You are not OWED a moment by moment accounting of our President´s time. You come across like one of those possessive and abusive husbands whose wives finally realize they don´t have to explain their whereabouts every five minutes.
Makes for a laugh when you think about the kenyan formerly squatting in our White House having a set of golf clubs, perhaps Ping or Callahan. When thinking about POTUS Trump having a set of golf clubs, we´re talking about some with 27 holes, some with 36 holes, etc. What a difference an election makes.
It appears to me the the drive-by´s seem to think that they are entitled to know and what Trump is doing every minute of the day. It´s gotten to the point that if he takes time to take a leak or a dump, the drive-by´s go berserk. "Oh my gosh! Where is he? No one´s seen or hear from he for the past 15 minutes!" President Trump should just ignore them and go on with the countries business. Which that so for, he´s been doing a great job.
(Updated) LONDON—The U.K. on Wednesday is set to make official its planned exit from the European Union, starting on an unprecedented path to reshape its relationship with its closest allies in some of the most complex negotiations the country has ever undertaken.Nine months after Britain voted to leave the EU, Tim Barrow, Britain’s ambassador to the bloc, is expected to hand deliver a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk formally notifying the bloc that the U.K. will be the first country ever to leave. U.K. government officials say there is no going back from there. “It is my fierce
New market data has somehow managed to make Whole Foods’ beleaguered lot look even worse. On top of reports last week that rival Albertsons was sniffing around Sprouts Farmers Market, an upstart organic grocer and wellness store whose prices are about 19 percent cheaper on average than Whole Foods, there are now some new numbers suggesting the high-end grocery chain is also still hemorrhaging shoppers. Foot traffic has dipped once again, Barclays analysts note, straight-up describing the magnitude this time as “staggering.” Technically, it’s 3 percent, which can make “staggering” seem a little far-fetched — until you consider it translates
The evidence is now clear that the White House and Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, have worked together to halt what was previously billed as a sweeping investigation of Russian interference in last year’s election. “We’ve been frozen,” Jim Himes, a Democratic representative from Connecticut who is a member of the Committee, said.The freeze started after last Monday’s hearing, where James Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, revealed that the F.B.I. has been investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia since last July. Comey also said that there was no evidence
A hedge-fund executive who lost millions in Bernie Madoff’s infamous Ponzi scheme jumped to his death from the luxury Sofitel New York Hotel on Monday afternoon, authorities said.Charles Murphy, 56, whose fund at Fairfield Greenwich invested more than $7 billion with Madoff, leaped from a room he had rented on the 24th floor around 4:42 p.m. and landed on a fourth-floor terrace, according to police sources.The financier was at the helm of the prestigious hedge fund when the firm poured billions into Madoff’s coffers.Fairfield lost nearly $50 million when Madoff’s scam imploded, according to the Wall Street Journal (paywall).
Matryoshkas are Russian nesting dolls. Inside each doll are several others smaller but identically shaped characters until you get to the smallest one inside. Studying what we have learned of the timeline -- and we still don’t have the entire story -- we see Wikileaks, the smallest, at the core, and Obama as the largest piece in what is the most historically outrageous misuse of the people and institutions of government for partisan advantage.
Fifteen people were shot and one person was killed at a Cincinnati nightclub early Sunday morning, officials said.Cincinnati police say there were "at least a couple of shooters" who opened fire inside of Cameo nightclub.The shooting occurred around 1:30 a.m., WLWT reported.“We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims,” Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate told WLWT. “It’s going to be a long night for our homicide units to investigate.”The victims were taken to four area hospitals. Some drove themselves and others were taken by ambulance. WLWT reports that at least
Donald Trump had heard enough about policy and process. It was Thursday afternoon and members of the House Freedom Caucus were peppering the president with wonkish concerns about the American Health Care Act—the language that would leave Obamacare’s “essential health benefits” in place, the community rating provision that limited what insurers could charge certain patients, and whether the next two steps of Speaker Paul Ryan’s master plan were even feasible—when Trump decided to cut them off."Forget about the little "stuff", Trump said, according to multiple sources in the room. "Let´s focus on the big picture here."The group of roughly 30
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members. He later
With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,
Barack Obama’s former press secretary is now a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, the network announced Monday. “Josh recently completed a ten-year run with President Obama, most recently serving as White House Press Secretary from 2014-2017,” NBC New President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Phil Griffin said in a joint statement. “A native of Kansas City, Josh graduated from Rice University with a degree in political science and policy studies. With his wealth of experience and insight, Josh will be a great addition to our roster of contributors and will be an asset for our two networks as
Mental genius Chelsea Clinton made a complete a** of herself once again this past weekend. Someone really needs to keep her away from the computers without supervision. Via Newsbusters— The Republican Party of Palm Beach County put President Lincoln in a #MAGA hat this year for its Lincoln Day Dinner. (Snip) An alarmed Chelsea Clinton, a graduate of Oxford University, asked her followers if the image was photoshopped! What a dunce. The responses to Chelsea’s tweets were EPIC! “No, this is the exact hat Lincoln was wearing when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. People forget that.” “Nope, Lincoln was wearing that exact hat at the Theater.” “Nope,
