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.

Interesting how so many anti/never Trump articles become "must reads". Especially from the New York Slimes the worst of the very Left Liberal biased media outlets.

It isn´t the Left´s business to know where he is. Keeping in mind the radical masses would do anything to take him out if they knew where he was.

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.

It does not matter if Trump was golfing or not
As many people can attest, a lot of business can be handled on the golf course.

It is just like a power lunch that happens every day in Hollywood or on Wall St.

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.

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.

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.

The story that Trump’s budget would kill the Meals on Wheels program was too good to check. But it was false. It made for great copy — irresistibly clickable and compulsively shareable. “Trump’s Budget Would Kill a Program That Feeds 2.4 Million Senior Citizens,” blared Time’s headline. “Trump Proposed Budget Eliminates Funds for Meals on Wheels,” claimed The Hill, in a piece that got 26,000 shares. But it was false. And it wouldn’t have taken long for reporters to find and provide some needed context to the relationship between federal block grant programs, specifically Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), and

President Trump is facing calls to retract and apologize for his sensational claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower last year. The chances of that happening are approximately zero, but Trump can meet his critics partway. Here’s what he should say: “My words were imprecise when I expressed concern that President Obama engaged in illegal surveillance. My intent was to focus public attention on the torrent of leaks of confidential information gathered by federal authorities. Such leaks are serious crimes and must be firmly addressed.

Whatever else one can say about President Trump’s so-called travel ban, it has ignited a fabulous feud among the riders of the 9th United States Appeals Circuit. One has called the whole case a “folly” and likened it not just to a dog being wagged by its tail but also to a St. Bernard “being wagged by a flea on its tail.” It’s hard not to imagine that, from the high bench, the sages of the Supreme Court are enjoying the spectacle.

Those of us who lived through the AIDS epidemic retain one singular memory: The plague that ravaged our lives was largely invisible to others. The epidemic was so concentrated for a while in a gay male subculture — often itself veiled by various closet doors — that straight people without gay family members or friends couldn’t see it. There was blanket media coverage, of course. But in your everyday life, if you were straight, you could live quite easily in the 1990s without coming across someone with AIDS.

Shortly after winning the presidency, Donald Trump met with U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara at Trump Tower. When Bharara left the meeting, he informed reporters that the president-elect had asked if he were willing to remain in his post, and that he had answered in the affirmative. Just under two months into Trump’s presidency, the White House asked Bharara and 45 other U.S. Attorneys to resign. Bharara refused to tender his resignation. He was then fired. Bharara announced his unemployment on Twitter, and then posted this enigmatic remark:

During last year’s election campaign, some tax experts and financial reporters suggested that Donald Trump may not have paid any federal income taxes since the nineteen-nineties. Trump’s dogged refusal to release any of his returns contributed to this speculation. So did his state tax returns from 1995, portions of which were sent to the Times. These showed that he had used aggressive accounting tactics, taking a loss that year of more than nine hundred million dollars. Experts suggested that Trump might have exploited this huge write-off in subsequent years, too, greatly reducing or eliminating his tax liabilities. “It is likely

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep.

President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and
