BACK TO WORK: Trump Golfs For 86th Time

Via Mediaite:

After President Donald Trump successfully saved Christmas from the evil Starbucks hobgoblins, he triumphantly tweeted that he would be getting “back to work” the very next day, toiling to make America great again “faster than anyone anticipated.”

So, imagine everyone’s surprise when he showed up at the golf course to hit the links with PGA Tour golfer Bryson DeChambau, former PGA player Dana Quigley and Sen. David Perdue.

Guess what? According to press reports, the president just showed up today at another one of his golf courses to, yeah, once again attempt to hit a very small ball into a very small hole. That’s two days in a row after so enthusiastically exclaiming it was time to get back to work.

    Being President is such hard work. I mean, have you SEEN how Early FOX and Friends comes on?

  • Ninja0980

    He’s not black though so no one cares.

  • Jonathan Smith

    hey JMG: what is Inform Raw and why does it auto play? i HATE auto play…. 🙁

  • red-diaper-baby 1942

    Please, please let him play as much as possible. Don’t complain or mock him about it. Every minute he’s out there playing, that’s a minute he’s not sitting at his desk destroying the country and the democratic system (and looking smug while he’s doing it). Please!

    • Jonathan Smith

      he has the rest of the party for that.

    • Rambie

      He’s not the only one destroying our democratic system, the GOP’ers in Congress are going full throttle

      • red-diaper-baby 1942

        True (also to Jonathan). But when they do it, we see them at it; we catch them in the act. Trump does it insidiously, behind the scenes, with regulatory rollbacks. He’s already done enormous damage to environmental protections, to consumer safeguards and a host of other issues, all in the name of making life easier for business companies and banks. What he’s really at is trying to undo absolutely everything accomplished by his predecessor, whom he hates and resents beyond reason. Not to mention his destruction of our longstanding alliances and good relationships with other countries. And the media are paying relatively little attention to this process. So as I said, let him play golf as much as he likes.

    But…but…Mike Flynn Jr has spoken (on his twitter profile he has a link to a grifting defense fund…lol :

    • JohnJay

      So… he’s conducting business on the government’s time?

      So Little Flynn isn’t denying the facts, for once. Truly a Christmas miracle!

        I don’t think he said the same about Obama golfing…

    • GayOldLady

      It’s amazing the bullshit stories people will make up to pretend that
      golfing is somehow important to anyone other than the person playing
      golf. I have 1 public golf course and a Country Club course near my home and I’m stunned at how many men are out there golfing, even in cold weather, every day of the week. Rarely do I see any women out there golfing. The women are in the offices doing the goddamned work or at home attending to children and household chores while their husbands and bosses flit around the golf course on business /s. Right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Joe in PA

        So, but how do you really feel? 🙂

        The farm that I grew up on was purchased and turned in to a golf course. My mom ended up running the club house, she had a bunch of employees (95% women), did all of the accounting work herself, set up the leagues during the winter months. And yes, it was all guys on the course. 🙂

        • GayOldLady

          I worked in Aerospace Engineering for most of my career and when I first began working with the company they had a barbershop on the 2nd floor and the men I worked with would disappear for 45 minutes to an hour to go and get their haircut. After a couple of years I began to wonder why the men could go during work time to get their haircut or their beards trimmed while the women were at their desks working away. So one day I decided to go up to the barbershop for a haircut. I went in and sat down and the barber looked at me like I was an alien from another planet. He said “can I help you?” I said “sure, I want a haircut”. He said “I don’t cut women’s hair” I said “why not” he said “I just don’t. I never have”. I said “well, my hair is short do you want to give it a try? I will tell you how I want it cut” and he refused. Do you want to guess what happened next? 🙂

          • Jonathan Smith

            you kicked him in the balls?

          • GayOldLady

            Good try, but wrong answer! 🙂

          • OdieDenCO

            you stabbed him with his own scissors and dissolved the body in the barbicide?

          • GayOldLady

            I would have, but his body wouldn’t fit in the bottle.

          • Joe in PA

            Is THAT what that stuff is for? Good to know. 🙂

          • Joe in PA

            I have a pretty good idea. 🙂

            The barbershop I used to go to in Alexandria, VA was one of those kinds of shops…but they DID do women’s hair cuts. Short hair is short hair.

          • ArchiLaw

            Have liv d in Alexandria most of my life. Which barber shop?

          • Joe in PA

            At the Brad-Lee shopping center (King St and Quaker Lane).

          • ArchiLaw

            Hubby gets his cut there regularly. (Insert small world reference here.)

          • zhera

            I want the next thing that happened to be that a hair saloon opened up next to the barbershop, and that women could go in during work hours.

            I doubt that’s the answer, though.

          • GayOldLady

            I wish it was the right answer. I suggested to the VP of Engineering that we open a hair salon or a nail salon, or maybe even a small grocery store so that women could get their chores done during working hours, but he wouldn’t go for it.

          • David Walker

            Sounds like “Hidden Figures,” only that was about a restroom for a colored woman being in another building…among many other issues. Nevertheless, same shit…different decade.

          • PickyPecker

            …the more things change…..

          • GayOldLady

            They also had an Executive dining room that was located right next to the cafeteria. There were Zero female executives at the company and the Executive dining room was apparently off limits to women. The Executives would invite salaried male employees in to dine with them, but they didn’t or couldn’t invite women salaried employees. They had waiters in the Executive dining room and they had food like steaks and shrimp, but in our dining area we had burgers, hotdogs and meat & 3. We eventually formed a coalition of workers to get rid of that slap in the face, not only to women, but to men & women who were hourly employees. It was total BS. If they didn’t want to dine with the rabble, they should have taken their meals in the board room or their meeting areas.

    • GayOldLady

      Also, I’ve been told by many men that HUNTING is a business outing too.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Yes, I’m sure that his interlink conversations and deal-making with those professional golfers accomplished huge amounts of work on behalf of the US government. [cough, cough]

  • Rex

    But, he said he’d be too busy to golf.
    You don’t think he was lying when he said that, do you?

  • Rex

    This would be bad enough, but after he
    criticized Obama for golfing, it’s just infuriating.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Well, that was Golfing While Black. /s

  • DJ John Bear

    The deals…the biggest deals…the greatest deals are made on the golf course. /s

  • pj

    getting close to 100 million to golf/promote golf for chump. could feed a lot of hungry kids but feeding the ego of the president is more important.

  • count me in the club that is happy he’s on the course. he’s not making us look any worse than he already has. sure, we’re paying for it, but that was going to happen anyway. he won’t start any wars or come up with any stupid and unconstitutional ideas while he’s golfing. i know rethug minions are busy destroying the country using him as cover, but still. maybe he’ll trip and fall and break his neck. it’s not like he’s in shape.

      The crazy claims about inauguration attendance make more sense now. It was a failed effort at making him look more popular than everybody knew he was.

  • zhera

    Actually, his tweet is not saying HE will be back to work, it implies that ‘everyone’ will/should/must/shall be back to work. Everyone but his orange self, of course.

    • Natty Enquirer

      Trump is crafty about that: he always has an out. Indeed, he said “it’s” back to work.

  • Butch

    Don’t you have to GO to work in the first place before you can GET BACK TO work?

  • David Walker

    “…Trump successfully saved Christmas from the evil Starbucks hobgoblins…” Hey, it’s hard work beating off Starbucks’ hobgoblins. Oh. That should have been “beating back.” Although, if he and his staff enjoy a cuppa Starbucks steaming Satanic Semen-laced lattes, a certain amount of beating off is necessary. They stopped sending the Kelly girl for the coffee as she tends to induce flaccidity amongst the staff.

    Trump: Fuck Anerica

  • Michael

    I’m watching Fox News on Youtube (since CNN recently decided to ban CNN live) and Fox actually reported with a straight face, “Trump is getting back to work” and then within 15 seconds reported Trump played golf yesterday and is going to play golf tomorrow….

  • GanymedeRenard

    Of course. Trump and the verb ‘to work’ are antithetical.

    President Trump Cancels 2018

    Washington DC – President Trump signed an executive order earlier today canceling the year 2018. 2017 will remain the official year of the United States of America.

    The reasons behind this bold move may not be apparent to all. 2017 hasn’t been a stellar year for the President. While the GOP did pass tax reform, Republican Roy Moore, favored by Trump, lost a significant election in Alabama. The attempt at repealing Obamacare was an embarrassment for Republicans. Virginia and New Jersey voted in Democrats for governors.

      Should I have tagged that as satire? Hard to know these days.

      It’s not beyond him. He’ll say he gets 4 “years” in office and his first “year” 2017 ends when he says it does.

  • Gerry Fisher

    I like Chris Hayes’ comment the best.

  • Gianni

    Apparently, Donnie classifies golf as work. Of course, sane people know that’s not so, but we’re talking about Donnie’s mindset here. That being the case, his claims of being the only President who has ever accomplished so much in his first year, would be true. Funny how, that reasoning didn’t apply to the times that Obama went golfing which was less in his eight-year presidency than Donnie’s total for his first year. Making sense, yet?
