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.

The President has arrived at Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach. White House hasn’t said who he’s golfing with, or even if he’s golfing this morning (narrator voice: He’s golfing)

From Trump pretending he’s not golfing during his visits to golf resorts to Paul Ryan pretending he wrote a middle class tax cut it’s a bottomless pit of bad faith and needs to be seen for what it is.

It’s trivial in the scheme of things, but the president pretending he’s not golfing WHEN EVERYONE CAN SEE HE’S GOLFING is representative of so much.
