not sitting on their fat behinds tweeting bullshit in-between bad golf games.

2. Or about taking time to whack a little white ball...

How many times has Trump played golf as President of the United States? Since taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, Mr. Trump has reportedly been on the grounds of his golf courses or played golf elsewhere 88 times since becoming President, and that's as of Dec. 28.
***
Trump has spent nearly 25 percent of his days in office at one of his golf properties for some portion of the day. There have been days where Trump has visited one of his golf clubs and not played golf. He made a 40-minute visit to his Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., and he has made a three-day visit to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., to watch the 2017 US Women's Open, unfolding at that club. Trump spent a 17-day "working vacation" at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., in August, which meant all of those days count as days on his golf courses, even though he didn't necessarily play golf on all of those days
.

Former President Barack Obama was frequently maligned by Republican and conservative critics for how often how chose to play golf while in office. Obama, who chose golf as his outlet from the glass cage that is the presidency, had plenty of weekends and vacations to play golf in the eight years he was Commander-in-Chief.

In total, according to CBS News reporter and presidential historian Mark Knoller, President Barack Obama played a total of 333 rounds of golf while President. That means Obama played golf for 1,665 hours of his presidency, which was, officially, 55,008 hours. In other words, Obama played golf for 3 percent of the time Obama was President.
***
Obama averaged about 41 rounds a year. However, he wasn't anywhere near how many rounds Woodrow Wilson played while in office, a figure estimated to be around 1,200, which is bonkers. President Dwight Eisenhower played an estimated 800 rounds while president.

And in his first year, Obama's golf outing count was only 28 (a hair more than twice a month), less than a third of Orange-on-the-Green's time.

3. the same place it was

when he claimed John McCain was not a war hero because he was shot down.

when he said "do you think our country is so innocent" when reminded Putin is a killer.

when he bragged about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it.

Their family values loving, support our military veterans, uber patriotism values, are all tucked away in the attic somewhere, to be conveniently trotted out until the next campaign. For now, it's just a matter of looking the other way, sticking their fingers in their ears, claiming "la la la la la can't hear you", when reminded of such realities.

4. republicans are squandering our hard-earned tax dollars

Instead of addressing America's problems, republicans are squandering our money to pamper a so-called republican "billionaire"* with luxury goof-off golf outings at $3 million a pop - so he can amuse himself while homeless & hungry people shiver in America's alleys. Sick republican shit

5. It is always faux outrage designed to take down a Democratic president...from President Clinton

to President Obama...they don't have any morals whatsoever which is why we need to understand no matter what they use to attack our people, we won't join in...too much joining in.

15. That is a terrible graphic for not giving Trumps total.

If I were Donald Trump that is how I would phrase it.

14. They don't care about any of these issues, just a gotcha game they play.

The only thing they care about is money and power.
The rest is red meat for their base.
