Trump Plays Golf While His Administration Burns to the Ground

While Donald Trump’s administration collapses around him, he traipses off to Florida to play golf again.

The hypocrisy of his doing so is lost on none of us who remember his previous complaints about President Obama’s golf game.

NBC News’ Brad Jaffy happily provides a reminder of these tweets:

If you have any doubts, a February 23 look at the charge by fact checking site Snopes rates this claim as “mostly true.”

However, what Snopes had trouble with was not that Trump criticized Obama for golfing while golfing himself, but a popular meme that lists 38 times Trump criticized Obama, and that at the time they “were only able to confirm that three of those visits included his playing golf.”

Of course, Trump did play golf this weekend. After his morning tweetstorm today, in fact. So make that four confirmed cases.

Snopes could not find 38 such complaints by Trump but “found that he had complained about his predecessor’s leisure activities about 15 times between 2014 and 2017.”

Fifteen times is plenty enough. Thirty-eight would be overkill. In fact, Trump playing golf even once would make him the hypocrite because as we all remember, Trump famously said on August 8, 2016:

“I’m going to be working for you, I’m not going to have time to go play golf.”

Right. Well, he also said he had a replacement for Obamacare and that he’d deliver a plan to defeat ISIS in his first 30 days in office.

In the end, it doesn’t matter how many times Trump played golf. What matters is that he was not only too busy to play but that he will go down in history as the president who was too busy playing golf to save his own scandal-ridden administration.
