President Trump visited Trump National Golf Club on Sunday for the second time during a weekend marked by terror attacks in London and protests nationwide.

Trump, much like former President Obama, has faced criticism for his golfing habits. "Can you believe that,with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf," Trump tweeted in October 2014. The president is not always golfing when at he visits his golf club; sometimes he conducts business there.

This is Trump’s 23rd golf trip since taking over the White House. Obama reportedly averaged 41 golf club visits per year as president.

Trump spent several hours at his golf club in Virginia on Saturday, while a group of demonstrators organized by Virginia Republican groups rallied to thank him in front of the White House. These supporters called their rally “Pittsburgh not Paris,” a nod to the president’s speech on Thursday about putting his responsibility to American voters ahead of international agreements.

Another protest in Washington, D.C. demanded more transparency in the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, and for Trump to release his tax returns. Many of those demonstrators were also upset about Trump’s Thursday decision to remove the United States from the Paris climate change agreement. The protest was part of a nationwide demonstration called the “March for Truth.”

On Sunday, Trump hit the links again after a morning of tweeting about the London terror attacks. The president was critical of London’s mayor and pointed out the terrorists did not need guns to strike. On Saturday night, he pledged support to the people of London and characterized the attack as a good reason to implement his travel ban restricting entry into the country for people from several Muslim-majority countries. He also spoke to UK Prime Minister Theresa May by phone.

Trump did not tweet about either rally on Saturday. His schedule on Sunday calls for him and the first lady to attend the Ford’s Theatre Reception, a tradition for most presidents.

Where's all the people that bitched when Obama golfed after a terrorist event?

Hell, why bother.

The one's in this group who complained the loudestabout KG and frightened Baron, are the exact same people who excused Trump golfing this weekend instead of being cloistered away with frightened Baron, because "Baron was obviously all better."

You can't make this level of justification and fan worship up!

It's hard to understand why his fans still support him. He's a hypocrite, selfish and unqualified for the job of president. He's golfing constantly, tweeting, insulting foreign leaders and he's all talk . ( and he seems to be even more obese than when he first took office. Ewww)
Maybe his fans can identify with lying ,hypocritical , selfish, not very smart overweight men?
