White House: Only The Press Has An Issue With Trump’s 91 Golf Course Visits In His First Year [VIDEO]

Mediaite reports:

Asked if the president has a bit of a transparency issue when it comes to his golf course visits and whether the White House has “some kind of issue about his” golfing, Sanders turned the question back around on the media.

“I think it’s the press that has an issue with his time on the course,” Sanders stated. “The president is extremely proud of the accomplishments we had during 2017.”

After claiming that no one “can argue” that Trump enjoyed one of the “most successful first years in office” of any president, the press secretary said that part of that was due to the “relationship building” he was able to do on the golf course.

Sanders was then pressed on why the White House wouldn’t give a readout or confirmation of these important meetings on the links, answering that the administration would release information when it was “pertinent.”

    Jesus, was this an actual question that was asked?? What the fuck does “issue about golfing” supposed to mean? Why not ask “Why is the president spending so much more time on the golf course than Obama did since he constantly beat up Obama for golfing? Why doesn’t that make him a colossal hypocrite?”

    • Scout

      Well, either way, I’m sure she had a frustratingly smug answer at the ready. But I agree, if they don’t get their point across in the questions, what’s the point?

      They don’t need to waste time trying to psychoanalyze his (or the “White House’s”) feelings– they have enough to do just trying to figure out the policy effects of his mismanagement.

    Why the 2018 Midterms Are So Vulnerable to Hackers

    New Yorker: “On a technical level, the American election system is almost as vulnerable as it was in 2016. According to U.S. intelligence, Russian hackers tested the vulnerabilities of registration rolls in twenty-one states, but did not alter the vote tallies. Halderman, who testified recently in Congress about gaps in election defenses, told me, ‘Unfortunately, there haven’t been widespread security improvements so far. We can be sure that our adversaries have been paying attention, and so they may be more likely to try attacking election systems in November.’ At the Def Con hackers’ conference in July, attendees demonstrated that they could break into thirty voting machines of multiple types, some in as little as ninety minutes. Without altering the results, hackers could sow doubt about the outcome by shutting down or disrupting voting machines on Election Day.”

    “How much of an effect could Russian interference actually have in 2018? The effects could be meaningful, even if they never touch the tallies directly.”

    https://politicalwire.com/2018/01/02/2018-midterms-vulnerable-hackers/

    DHS Is Making States Wait 9 Months Before Helping to Secure Their Voting Systems

    The Russians hacked at least 20 states prior to the 2016 election, mostly getting into the voter registration database rather than the actual voting machines. The goal of such hacking was undoubtedly to remove voters from heavily Democratic precincts, so as to prevent them from voting. Many states have realized this in retrospect, and have asked the Department of Homeland Security for help in securing their systems for the 2018 election. Such help is not forthcoming with any speed. More specifically, there is a 9-month waiting period before help arrives. Of course, that means any state asking for help now will get it just before the election, which will not leave any time to fix problems that are detected. Also, if it is detected that voters may have been deleted from the rolls, there will be no way to get them reregistered in time to vote.

    Much of the problem rests with Congress, which has yet to pass any bill dealing with election security or appropriating funds for searching for and fixing problems. States and localities typically have no budget for cyber security, so they are dependent on DHS, which has some expertise and budget, but not nearly enough to do the job. What DHS has been offering in lieu of actual help is instructions for states and localities to do their own assessments. While that may help a little, it is clearly too little too late.

  • lymis

    Not only the golf, but the amount of money he’s grifting off the taxpayers by doing it at his own properties and making the Secret Service pay him to protect him, rent golf carts, pay for rooms, and so on.

    Bush spent a lot of time at his ranch, so much so that it bothered me at the time, but even he didn’t soak the taxpayers for his mortgage.

    • Tor

      I wonder who paid to have those trees planted around his course.

    I actually think the farther away he is from the Oval Office, the better we all are. He can’t do as much harm on the golf course as he can at work. I’m totally fine with this.

  • I remember back in 2004 when Kerry was running for president and my rwnj relatives sent out all these multi-forwarded emails of all the Heinz-Kerry homes. Then four years later when I brought up all the homes that the McCains owned their response was “so?” They never cared about the actual facts they were spouting, only about the narrative they were pushing. So here we are again. Every time Obama played golf the right had a shit fit. But when Trump plays golf way more often it’s no big deal. This is how full of shit everyone on the right is.

    I will point out that the trolls on Twitter are still complaining about the number of times Obama went golfing and the amount of taxpayer money that was spent on his outings.

      Because he’s nuts. In that addled brain of his, whatever complaints he applied to anyone else about something they said or did, don’t apply to him for saying and doing the same. Major character flaws and flagging sanity is what we have as our President.

    transparency

    [trans-pair-uh n-see]

    noun

    The quality or state of being transparent. In politics, the act of being forthright and open with the American public, who they serve. Something the Trump White House and especially useless Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders are big fucking failures at.

    See also: Opaque, hiding something, patronizing, defensive, collusion, Russia, Russia, Russia, particularly bad at their jobs, worst president ever, totally out of their depth, clueless, Putin puppets.

  • Bill Haffey

    Seeing Trump made an issue of the amount of time President Obama spent on the golf course, and stated he would be too busy to play golf, clearly Trump and those who voted for him have a problem with the amount of time he spends on the golf cours, or they should, if he wasn’t telling lies during his campaign. Who am I kidding of course he was telling lies.

    • Gianni

      Would be nice if one of the reporters would comment to the #2 liar (Sarah) about how he repeatedly criticized Obama about golfing when, at this rate, he’ll far surpass Obama’s 8 years of golfing within the next couple of months, if he hasn’t already. Why did he make an issue of it to insult Obama, when he is setting new records for taxpayer time and money used up on the course? And does she really expect any moderately sane person to believe that Donnie is working at the same time he’s golfing?

  • Pete Wascher

    trump should have an issue with it. he was critical of obama for playing too much golf. is trump saying he uses it for business and obama didn’t?
