Trump Escapes To His Golf Club For Fourth Straight Weekend With Russia Arrests Imminent

Trump has spent 27 percent of his time as president golfing and more than a third hiding out at one of his lavish properties. 

Trump Escapes To His Golf Club For Fourth Straight Weekend With Russia Arrests Imminent

With an arrest expected as early as Monday in Robert Mueller’s escalating investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, Donald Trump escaped the White House on Saturday, reportedly wearing his standard golf outfit and shoes.

A short time later, Griffin confirmed, the president arrived at his club in Sterling, Virginia – the fourth straight weekend that Trump has left his job in Washington to hit the links.

According to the MSNBC producer, citing the press pool,  Trump’s motorcade was met with a protester at the entrance of the club, holding a sign that said, “Impeach.”

Trump’s visit to his Virginia golf club marks his 76th day golfing and 96th day at one of his properties during his short 10 months in the White House. For those keeping score at home, that means Trump has spent 27 percent of his time as president golfing and more than a third hiding out at one of his lavish properties.

Trump’s poor work ethic is stunning given how harshly he criticized former President Barack Obama’s golf habits during the campaign. The current president even repeatedly promised that, if elected, he wouldn’t have time to golf and probably would rarely even leave the White House.

Over the past ten months, virtually the opposite has been true as Trump’s frequent travel outside of Washington – often to one of his own properties – has all but bankrupted the U.S. Secret Service.

His latest golf outing on Saturday comes after the explosive news that the first charges in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation have been approved and an arrest could come as early as Monday. In his early morning tweets, Trump made no mention of the new developments.

Instead, Trump prefers to bury his head in one his sand traps and pretend all of this is fake news.
