As thousands are dying daily from the coronavirus, Donald Trump was caught on video golfing on Sunday as if he doesn’t have a care in the world.
Here is Trump playing golf for the second straight day after he lied about the number of virus cases and deaths. (These campaign ads write themselves). pic.twitter.com/KjN1AQnQCO

Trump came up with a lie before he hit the links to justify his golfing:
Cases, numbers and deaths are going down all over the Country!

The Washington Post reported that the virus is surging across rural America, while Donald Trump is golfing, “America’s largest and most densely populated cities and suburbs still suffer more infections and deaths per capita, but those overall rates are increasing faster in smaller, rural counties where the virus has spread rapidly in the past month, the Post analysis found.”
Trump is making up his own alternate reality and trying to sell it to the American people because he wants to go play golf, hold political rallies, and pretend as if life has returned to normal. Life is anything, but normal. Forty million Americans are unemployed. Double-digit unemployment is expected to last through the end of the year.
Trump thinks that he is convincing voters that life is back to normal, but all is proving is that he must be voted out of office.
