Golf magazine is suggesting President Trump may have been an unknowing party to some fake news, of the real golfing variety. On Monday, a federal holiday, the commander-in-chief invited a former competitor for the GOP presidential nomination, Sen. Lindsey Graham, out for some golf at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia. [Snip] According to Graham, the two men talked nothing but golf on the front nine, then got down to more serious business on the back nine — North Korea, immigration, Iran. But that’s not what became news. What became news was Graham’s ensuing afternoon tweet: “President Trump shot

This story is proof that there is too many people working in the media industry.

Can´t wait to see them report his paper toss score in Oval Office trash can.

Dollar Bill Clinton was a notorious cheater on the golf course, Barack was pitifully bad with his girlie swing and one legged coaxing of putts.
President Trump is a good golfer.

Golf.com reported his handicap several years ago (long before his presidential bid) as 3.7. That means he is a way above average player and that a 73 is probably not all that unusual a score for him.

Please, Journos, get a life!!

73 for a 3 handicap player is quite doable. Make a few extra putts, maybe chip one in. Not sure what tees he was playing. At 75, I have moved up to the ´old man´s´ tees.
73 is certainly possible for a good player like Trump.

FTA: “A score of 84 would seem plausible,” Bamberger wrote. “Trump is a good golfer. But a 73, from a 71-year-old who plays often for a president but infrequently for a low-handicap golfer? Unlikely, to say the least.”

Michael Bamberger does not know what he´s talking about.

I´m a ten handicap and frequently shoot in the high 70s. And I play three times a month and don´t own a dozen golf courses. A 2/3/4 handicap would be expected to shoot around par now and then. Particularly on misty days when the ball stops where you land it on greens leaving more birdie putts than usual. Particularly on a course you own. "Course knowledge" can save several strokes per round.

Maybe if Leftist "journalists" actually DID things now and then rather than simply sitting in jackal-pack judgement of others they´d understand how Alphas roll a little better? (Pun intended).

As all we amateur golfers know, it is entirely reasonable for a player of any age--even one who is 71 years old--to "go low" when he/she is keeping it in the fairways and hitting the greens in regulation. Especially one such as the president, who is an excellent putter. If I were Golf.com I would quickly send Michael Bamberger to the showers, because he doesn´t know much about golf and is hurting the golf.com brand.

I remember reading a story about a reporter supposedly witnessing Obama curling 90lb dumbbells.

I´m ad avid weightlifter and dead lift well over 500lbs. I look like a guy who dead lifts well over 500lbs.

I can´t curl 90lb dumbbells.

Just posted to compare and contrast this witnessed story with how breathlessly they accepted anything Obama had to say.

Led by Trump, Republicans set out
to commit communal suicide

Even more than 40 years later, picturing Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland in “Start the Revolution Without Me” sets me laughing. At a royal masquerade ball around the French Revolution, decorously dancing couples, one after another, pass around conspiratorial notes to “Kill the Duke,” “Kill the Duchess,” “Kill the Queen.” Until finally, the note “Kill Everybody.” It’s much less funny, but that’s what the Republican Party seems bent on doing this fall, committing communal suicide to mark its historic election successes of recent years. And in preparation for the 2018 midterm elections. [Snip] Yet Republicans in Washington can’t seem to get anything

Who knew when that walking tattoo billboard discovered social injustice in America last winter what a kneeling mess it would become for NFL players, the league and owners. The emotional controversy touches on patriotism, the flag, veterans, fallen troops, invited a tweeting president to stoke the flames, slashed TV ratings and, once again, aimed fire at Roger Goodell.

Any human communications can be tricky, polluted by bias, expectations, assumptions, many things. Nowhere are such communications more delicate — or important — than between media and political leaders in a free society, in this case the Trump White House and the press corps assigned there to gather and deliver accurate news to Americans. Chief of Staff John Kelly gave his first news briefing Thursday, a refreshingly genial, candid and succinct appearance for the Trump White House.

What Trump’s Iran decision really means

President Trump’s decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal may or may not accomplish anything with that rogue nation’s ambitions to develop weapons of mass destruction and sow regional rebellion. But it certainly hands Congress a very hot falafel. It’s a similar move to Trump earlier this year handing over to Congress the DACA mess, aimed at deporting the grown children of illegal immigrants. ‘Here, I did my part, you guys handle throwing these folks out.’ Both moves allow Trump to check off two more campaign promises. [Snip] Sending it to Congress now is actually a compromise within the administration

The clock is ticking. It’s getting closer. Only 1,118 days until Election Day in 2020. So, naturally pollster thoughts turn to Nov. 3, 2020 and how the most clickable, news-making political personality in a long while might do. Oh, sure, worry warts and precision proponents will suggest a few things might occur to affect voters’ decision between now and then. [Snip] And, OK, Trump’s barely 19% of the way through a first term. So, even though most Americans seem to have an opinion about this man, the YouGov/Economist polling folks asked Republicans: Do you want Donald Trump to run for

When’s the last time you saw a Republican president rally with over-road-truckers? Not the norm. But then President Trump is not the normal president and he’s not waging the normal fight. In his 50-minute speech Wednesday night in Harrisburg, Pa., he talked about many things, as usual. But the main focus was his tax reform proposals. You can watch his speech at C-SPAN’s video archive here. It’s a middle-class bill. That’s what we’re thinking of. That’s what I want…You finally have a

While the nation was justifiably consumed with the awful human ravages of hurricanes and a wealthy, crazed sniper in Nevada, the most important deadline of the young Trump presidency suddenly looms: Certifying whether Iran is complying with the leaky nuclear deal “negotiated” by the Obama administration. [Snip] If you don’t know Trump despises the deal, you haven’t been listening these past two years. Most recently, he told everyone at the United Nations: “Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it, believe me.” We believe him this time.

Ouch! NFL TV ratings drop again as

Pretty soon, it could be NFL team owners on their knees begging TV viewers to come back. Once again in Week 4 of the 2017 season, as players continued their sitting-kneeling protests against something, former fans silently exercised their right of free speech using TV remotes. Despite the always insightful, candid commentary of Jon Gruden, this week’s Monday Night game on ESPN lost audience again. It was actually a pretty good game, by all accounts. [Snip] This game though drew 13% fewer viewers than last week. And the drop was worse — 16% — in the key demo that ad

Are you ready for airport security

Stand by for security pat-downs just to enter your resort hotel. It didn’t take long after Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas for resort hotels there to begin implementing new, far more strict security screenings simply to enter the building. Hotel guests at Wynn’s resort stood in line with a 10-minute wait to be screened. That’s likely to become a new normal as the country’s worst mass shooting forces major tourist meccas to radically re-imagine potential threats and expand their thinking about security against a new range of threats. As they did at any airport before boarding their flights to Vegas this week, patrons of Wynn’s

The media news narrative exiting Alabama’s GOP Senate runoff was that the selection of firebrand Judge Roy Moore as the Republican candidate for the December general election will probably cause radical changes in his party’s control of the U.S. Senate. Hold on. There are certain to be changes that complicate Republicans’ midterm election outlook. But they’re actually due to a variety of unusual reasons including chronic party disunity, not just Moore’s likely arrival on Capitol Hill come January. All this turmoil, including an unpredictable, deeply unpopular President Donald Trump vowing to do deals with Democrats,

Some Georgia high school football players had an inspiring little protest of their own this weekend. And it involved running, not kneeling. While pro National Football League players were locking arms and taking a knee across the country to protest someone or something or other, these high school players decided to exercise their freedom of speech a little differently in their country by celebrating America instead of criticizing it. The entire Fannin County Rebel team ran onto the field together, each player carrying a large U.S. flag. The patriotic display happened before their game with the Greater Atlanta Christian School

Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again.

Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The

He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression.

As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government
