White House Uses Rolling Truck To Block CNN Cameras From Capturing Trump Playing Golf Again [VIDEO]

Mediaite reports:

President Donald Trump made news today by making no news at all, putting in a round of golf for the second day in a row after tweeting that it was time to “get back to work.”

Trump’s golf outings have become strangely secretive lately, with reporters being forced to hide in the bushes in order to snag footage of the commander in chief getting his swing on.

Today, the White House is being accused of taking this secrecy to a whole new level, with photojournalists noting a mysterious white truck blocking the way from reporters gaining access to Trump’s golf outing, with The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi noting that the truck seemed to move along with the cameras, with the sole intent of restricting access.

        Anyone else wonder why the Secret Service wasn’t renamed after WW2? DHS agents aren’t the first thing I think of when I see those initials.

          Is this better ZZ ? I’m fascinated about that era and yes it is always where my thoughts go. 3rd season of Hunting Hitler has just started on the History Channel. They are using recently released classified CIA, FBI, etc reports with Bob Bier(sp) former agent and appears regularly on cnn. I have a choice of Fox or CNN so don’t judge me on my choice. I also get much of the Canadian News and of course here at JMG. I read online news world wide.One of my mothers points my sis recently cited of moms advice, ” Keep Current of the World Around You. At 86 yrs young she still practices what she preaches and reads JMG frequently but so far hasn’t ventured into the comments section. That I know of anyway. She loves the variety of news presented here.

  • John Davis

    CNN could just fly a quiet drone camera thing over the golf course, from 300 feet, it would make no noise to those on the ground. But we’d get great shots of him cheating at golf, just like he cheats at everything else in life.

  • just so pathetic.

    a friend of mine on another blog has been arguing that what is likely to happen is that mueller and some other high ranking folks are going to get together soon, look at all the evidence they have on the traitor and some of his friends, and then have a sit down with him. they will allow him to ‘retire due to health reasons’ after his exam next month. saving a lot of effort, and possibly, a large number of other repukes’ freedom, as the investigation has revealed how corrupt the rethug party is. but the public will be told very little about that.

    • John Davis

      Wow, now THAT would be nice. Then we’d have to go after Pence, who can “retire for health reasons” after the 2018 election, when Dems take control of the House once again, and get the then Dem Speaker of the House to become the next Prez.

      • William

        Pence would ‘retire’ because of the knife in his back. There’s some other people interested in the top job.

      • Kruhn

        No. It’d be whoever Pence nominates and Congress approves as his VP under the 25th Amendment.

    • margaretpoa

      I just don’t think his ego would allow for that. My 0.02.

      • i dunno. presidenting is Hard Work, and he’s not exactly well known for loving that. his ego is satisfied, he can say “i was the president.” but given how much he obviously doesn’t want to be in the WH or any other place where he is expected to do his job, i can totally see him saying “I Quit!” just so he can’t be impeached.

        • Judas Peckerwood

          But as this post points out, he doesn’t do the hard work, so that’s not an issue.

        • Chucktech

          Presidenting is hard work for legitimate presidents. Donald Trump simply refuses to do any work. He actually is incapable of doing any work. He can’t even pay attention to his daily briefing. So he plays golf and watches TV and rails at minions and staff. Perhaps that IS exhausting for him.

          But, really, he doesn’t do shit.

        He’d save is own skin especially if he can claim a “win” and get away with crimes.

        • RoFaWh

          An alternative that might work out better: Trump is discovered to have a life-threatening condition. He decides Russian medicine is better than American and flies to Moscow for treatment. Never to be seen or heard of again.

            But he won’t spend any time in court or in prison. No jury in this nation will ever convict him and no judge will ever serve him a sentence.

      I hate this theory. Lately, I’ve been easing the pain of his presidency by imagining him in an orange jumpsuit.

      • peacfulseas inWA

        I think you can continue with that image. Their crowing is just that. Mueller has for the most part kept what he has discovered under wraps. It may not have anything to do with the campaign other than the trump crime syndicate the expendables but not the dogfather. He’ll go down for money laundering and payouts to sexual assault victims once Mueller exposes his tax returns.

        “The American people need a conviction, pure and simple.”

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      I get the appeal of the idea because it is an easy removal of the most obvious symptom. But it does nothing to fix the Russia problem nor the fact that the GOP would gladly whore out the entire country. It also lets Trumpeteers off the hook which is the worst of all.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        The trumpeters need to be confronted with what they’ve done. They need their noses rubbed in the crimes of their dear leader.

    • fiizok

      I haven’t forgotten the anonymous FBI agent who was quoted very early this year saying something to the effect that Trump would die in prison. And since Trump has recently been slamming the FBI publicly, I can only imagine what they think of him now, and what they may have in store.

      • DesertSun59

        That FBI agent was, sadly, incorrect. 45 will spend not a single second in prison. No jury can convict him and no judge will ever hand down such a sentence. He will get away with his crimes just like he has forever. Why? Our justice system knows how deeply embedded into the Russian oligarch system he is. No jury or judge is willing to risk their lives by a conviction. Without exception, the Russians would pick them all off over time. 45 is a Russian asset and they will not allow him to be taken out like that.

    • Judas Peckerwood

      We can’t count on Mueller, impeachment, retirement or anything else to take down Trump. We have to win the 2018 elections big-time to neutralize him, and then kick his ass back to Hell in 2020.

      • Rambie

        Not just Trump but the entire Republican parties, “ass back to Hell in 2020”

      • (((GC)))

        We have to win the 2018 elections big-time to neutralize himand the entire Rethuglican Party, as Rambie said.

        If Popular Vote Loser is removed, and Congress will still do a President Pence’s bidding, we get a dangerous, theocratic right-winger in power who won’t trip himself up with the same tantrums and incompetence we’ve seen from Dolt 45*.

        • Steve

          Pence in many ways is far more dangerous than Trump

      • ChrisInKansas

        If we still have honest elections by then.

      • DesertSun59

        If we are going to rely solely on the ballot box we will lose and ALL the GOPers will win. Several reasons for that: 1) The GOP owns gerrymandering in 99% of House districts 2) GOP voter suppression laws are the bedrock of their elections in 37 states 3) General evote hacking has never been addressed in Red States and never will be due to hacking nearly being always in their favor.

        There is one exception to that case, so far: AL. Moore has now revealed that he expected hacking to hand him the election. He revealed that by screaming fraud. He left the state during the last week of the campaign because he expected it to be in his favor. It didn’t happen and that was a surprise to him. He paid handsomely for the election to be handed to him. In any other Red State where any Dem wins you can expect the GOPers to contest the elections.

    • June Gordon

      Unless Trump takes lying Mike Pence and his Christian Sharia Law with him, this arrangement does NOT work for me.

        My mum hates Drumpf. (She’s 71 yrs old.) Actually, she loathes him. Whatever synonym for “hates strenuously” you want to use would work well here.

        But … she actually hates and fears Pence more than Drumpf.

        It’s a toss-up for me. I loathe each of them equally but for different reasons. It’s like deciding which you hate more: the smell of dog shit or the odour of cat piss.

        • Rambie

          Oh that’s easy, the odor of cat piss. Having grown up with both dogs and cats I can attest.

        • RoFaWh

          I’m older than your mum.

      • TCinBerkeley

        What would be great is if Pence got taken down too. Then Ryan would become president, and if there is anything Democrats & Republicans can agree on is that Ryan is a putz.

    • Rambie

      That’d just let the rest of the Republicans off too easy…

    • Dorothy Rothchild

      Interesting theory but Mueller knows that Trump colluded with a foreign government to win the election. If the full truth doesnt come out there’s nothing to stop it from happening again.

    • Rebecca

      I’ve been telling my husband that for the last several months.

      ” He devalued the Presidency, and left the country that elected him in trauma.. . . . The American people need a conviction, pure and simple.”

    • Piet

      But if he just resigns, he gets to keep the perpetual Secret Service protection and the annual office allowance as well as the pension. Don’t they take all that away if he’s impeached, convicted, and removed? Or does he get it no matter how he leaves office? Does someone here know? Frankly, I think he’s already made more than enough money off the presidency; I’d like to see him driven out of DC in penniless disgrace, but I’m a sweetheart when it comes to matters like that.

    • DesertSun59

      I share this assessment. It’s completely obvious to anyone following this issue that 45 will never see the inside of a courtroom over his collusion, much less a nanosecond of prison time. His minions will fall on their sword for him tho and spend much time inside a cell.

    • David Walker

      What I’m having trouble with (all the other shit being a “given” now) is him not wanting to be photographed. The fucking moron doesn’t want to be photographed? That means it didn’t happen? Or all of a sudden he’s camera shy. Anything shy (aside from germs)? Does Not Compute. Does Not Compute. Does Not Compute.

      • He doesn’t want to be photographed if there is shame involved with the photo.

        He hates pictures that are unflattering, such as from the side, which shows his gut and gigantic neck pouch. Hates pictures where his ridiculous combover is blowing around. Hates pictures that feature his increasingly gigantic ass.

        But here, it’s that deep down he knows people view his constant vacations and golfing as signs of extreme laziness and self-indulgence. This equals shame. And a top motivator for narcissists is avoidance of shame.

        • David Walker

    You’re all wrong. Trump is a master at distraction. While the camera crews are filming trees, he is having the real meeting with his owner’s rep in the truck. He uses the truck instead of a limo like other politicians because it has more room for junk food and grabbing women by the whatever.
