Playing Golf During Crisis Isn’t a Sin Proclaims Trump

by Sinisav

NDTV – 05/26/2020: Donald Trump and the media. Name a more hating duo. You can’t. According to POTUS, they are always on his throat, and just won’t leave him alone. On the other hand, media outlets criticize the President’s every move.

During the weekend, Mr. Trump indulged himself with a game of golf. It was Memorial Weekend, and next year during this same period, we could have a memorial for those 100 thousand who died from coronavirus. Media were all over POTUS for his carelessness.

This was Donald Trump’s first game of golf since March, and he didn’t want to be criticized for it: “The Fake and Totally Corrupt News makes it sound like a mortal sin!” While playing golf isn’t a sin, the moment was all wrong.

The issue that “fake news” as Trump calls them brought out was Trump’s tweets from 2014. Back then, POTUS criticized Barack Obama for playing golf during the Ebola outbreak, a crisis that was quite smaller than the one we have now.

This is what Trump said in 2014: “There are times to play and times that you can’t play. It sends the wrong signal. You know when you’re president you sorta say, like, ‘I’m gonna give it up for a couple of years, and I’m really gonna focus on the job.'”

Trump is under fire for his hypocrisy, but he decided to fire back. In response to the media, Donald Trump wrote: “I knew this would happen! What they don’t say is that it was my first golf in almost 3 months, and, if I waited three years, they would do their usual ‘hit’ pieces anyway.”

Not everyone wanted to criticize Trump. Former Barack Obama adviser, David Axelrod, defended him: “I don’t often defend this @POTUS, but I don’t begrudge him a round of golf.”
