Trump and Ike love(d) their golf games

 

“Talking about golf is always boring. (Playing golf can be interesting, but not the part where you try to hit the little ball: only the part where you drive the cart.) —  Dave Barry quotes

President Donald J.Trump and former President Dwight (Ike) David Eisenhower share a penchant for the game of golf. They play(ed) rounds of golf to help them unwind from the stresses of their elected roles as president of the United States.

Ike , supreme commander of the Allies in World War II, the architect of D-Day, and two-term president of the United States, had been elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Arnold Palmer said “one would be hard-pressed to find any single person who did more to popularize the game of golf, not only in the United States but throughout the world, than President Eisenhower.”

Mr. Trump the current U.S. commander-in chief  also enjoys the occasional round or two of golf and has a penchant for water pistols and video games. At this stage of his political game he is still considered an armchair quarterback unaware of the serious nature of his decisions.

In his nearly first 100 days in office Mr T. has visited his gold courses in Florida a total of 13 times costing the American taxpayer nearly 20 million dollars ( this does not include caddy of green rental fees. Afterall he does own the courses he visited.

It is ironic that Trump during his campaign trial heavily criticized then President Barak Obama for playing too much golf and promised if elected he (Trump) would “work his ass of in the White House” and rarely leave that location.

Isn’t it amazing how reality always seems to uncover the slickly written and  rehearsed rhetoric of a man desperate for power and global recognition.?

Critics suggest that it is merely another untruth in a myriad and complicated lineup of such invented tales that are meant to impress a gullible public . –  gc
