Hypocrisy Meter Off The Charts As Trump Has Golfed 6 Times Since Taking Office

Hypocrisy Meter Off The Charts As Trump Has Golfed 6 Times Since Taking Office

Perhaps the new president should finish reading his job description instead of jetting off to Florida every weekend.

Hypocrisy Meter Off The Charts As Trump Has Golfed 6 Times Since Taking Office

After repeatedly criticizing Barack Obama for his golfing habits, the hypocrisy meter is flying off the charts as Donald Trump has visited his golf course half a dozen times in the span of a single month in office.

For some reason, though, Trump’s team won’t admit that he’s actually golfing when he drops by his Sunshine State courses.

According to a new report from CNN, “[Trump’s] aides are trying to obscure whether Trump is actually golfing during the visits.”

Goodness, I can’t imagine why.

Could it have anything to do with the fact that Trump spent an entire campaign season waging attacks – like this one – on his predecessor?

Video:


“I don’t have time for that. I love golf, I think it’s one of the greats, but I don’t have time,” Trump said on the campaign trail in 2015. “We don’t have time for this. We have to work.”

On Twitter, President Obama’s golfing habits were brought up by Trump on numerous occasions, as this image from Brian Klaas points out:

Trump has golfed two weekends in a row (out of 4 as president).

Here are 11 times Trump criticized Obama for playing golf as President.

One tweet read: “Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf. Worse than Carter.”

Despite these attacks, Trump has spent three weekends in a row at his Mar-A-Lago Estate in Florida, where he has visited his nearby golf courses a half dozen times. Obama, on the other hand, didn’t play his first round of golf until the end of April in his first term.

The difference, of course, is that former President Obama led a scandal-free administration that saved the economy from a second Great Depression, revived the American auto industry, disposed of Obama bin Laden, and provided health insurance to more than 20 million Americans – to name a few.

On the contrary, Trump’s White House has been a magnificent dumpster fire, plagued by scandal and incompetence literally from day one. Perhaps he should finish reading his job description before jetting off to Florida every weekend.

To paraphrase the president, can you believe that, with all the problems and difficulties facing the new administration, that Trump has spent every weekend of his first month as president playing golf?

Honestly; I would prefer if Trump just golf, instead of pushing the crap he wants to do with this nation.

People are okay with TRUMP golfing and going to Maralago because as demonstrated TRUMP is always working. Obama on the other hand golfed strictly for the spot, even when he golfed with members of Congress he didn't talk business, same goes when Obama took vacations.

It's okay. There's lots of deals made on the golf course. The Obama golf defenders taught us that.

Trump is always working?  When was that demonstrated?  At the dinner when he discussed national security in a crowded room with foreign dignitaries?

I liked when they put green trash bags over the windows so the press wouldn't be able to see him golfing.

How do you know President Obama wasn't working??  Because someone said it??    What about Presidents, Clinton, Bush and Bush??  Were they always working too?
