My friend posted this.... Yeah it's a big fucken deal!

How many times has Biden played golf his 1st year in office?

He's played... Wait, let's look at his predecessors first.

Barack Obama who was relentlessly mocked for spending so much time on the links by a world renowned birther, spent 105 days in all four years chasing the little white ball, mostly at military courses.

In his first year in office, Trump played 87 times at an average expense of $1million per outing, including cart rental and Coast guard protection. The next year was nearly 100 times for a total of 308 at the end of his term. He played 19 times his first 100 days, beginning February 4th. He enjoyed his favorite pastime, behind crushing democracy, 308 times while collecting the salary he said he didn't want.

Joe Biden played his first game as president on his 89th day in office and racked up a total of nine times at the end of his first year. That's it. Nine times. I can just see the disgusted look on Tucker Carlson's face.

"I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf". -DJT

3. Barack Obama "spent 105 days in all four years"

Did you mean eight years? Or if not, how many total?

22. No, that was for his 1st term, like DJT

Obama totaled 330 times, mostly at military bases that already had provisions for security.

6. Don't take this the wrong way...

..and read the entire post before thinking I'm defending Trump.

A President is on duty 24/7/365 during his 4 year term. Whether he's on the golf course or the toilet or in the shower or asleep or on vacation or in a meeting with a head of state in another country, he is on duty. The only time a President is not on duty would be if he is incapacitated for some reason, like undergoing a medical procedure requiring anesthesia. And then, there has to be an official 'temporary transfer of power' to the Vice-President per some section in the 25th amendment. So all the criticism of Presidents going on vacation or playing golf is so much bullshit.

But Donald Trump never fully comprehended what the Presidential duties are...and still doesn't know what Presidents are supposed to do. He was, at best, a quasi-President...from Axios:

"Trump typically wakes up before 6 a.m., sources tell Axios, and the first five hours of his mornings are devoted to “executive time.” According to Axios, that’s anything from watching or reading the news, making calls, checking in with members of Congress, friends, administration officials and informal advisers."

The 'checking in with friends and informal advisors' says a lot. An informal advisor could have been Sean Hannity telling him he "did this right' or 'did that wrong' or suggesting something he should do or say. Steve Bannon advised him quite a bit. He paid more attention to the informal advisors than the knowledgable people in his staff. Trump essentially spent four years running the country per the opinions of all the anti-Democratic party propagandists and trying to con the public into thinking he was doing a good job.

So, he was an ineffective, incompetent President regardless any particular location...worthless on the golf course, worthless in the Oval Office.

10. I prefer "Fake Prez" to describe TFG.

Or "President in name only". IMO if the US President was a role more similar to that of the President of the Republic of Ireland then TFG could have been elected to that role and just be a national embarrassment rather than the abject disaster that he was when he was selected for office. He wanted all the trappings and legal immunity that being a head of state offers with zero of the responsibility.

I still would like to see a major search engine like Google get rigged by outside forces (as it once was for George W Bush) that a search term like "complete failure" returns TFG as the #1 result.

7. DT's golfing alone

Cost the US taxpayers over $150million. Because every time the President goes somewhere it takes a C5 to transport all the vehicles and support equipment for staff and Secret Service and since most of the golfing DT was properties most of that $150mil went into his properties keeping solvent.

How that was not a huge violation of the Emoluments Clause is unknown since SCOTUS finally decided in March or April last year (2021) I think that the Emoluments case against DT was moot and dismissed it since DT was now out of office…even though the case had come to SCOTUS in early or mid 2020 and they sat on it for months. SCOTUS has clearly become a branch of the GOP.

15. He only golfed at his own properties in order to drive more business to himself

That $150 million ... well it mostly went to Chump's pocket. And yes it was a major emoluments violation.

So was the Chump Hotel in Washington where Repukes and lobbyists booked their events to curry favor with Chump.

No Democrat has done anything like this, EVER. But there wasn't a peep out of the Repukes over it for 4 years.

29. One of many blatant lies & instances of hypocrisy that

show what a garbage person Pissolini really is. Yet, Rs are not interested in the truth. Especially not his cult.

He can be as loud & proud as he likes proving over &
over how rude, crude, petty, mean, mendacious, belligerently ignorant, dumb, and downright crooked he is, and the TrumpSuckers only become more loyal to him.

And then they have the audacity to criticize Dems who exhibit a tiny fraction of that sort of behavior.

16. Yeah I remember-

-when Trump said, " You won't see me playing golf when I'm President! I'm going to be working!" And of course his idiot base cheered when he made that dig at Obama. But of course, the first thing he did after he became President was to rush out and play golf. And he played golf a lot! Funny how the wingnuts don't seem to remember that.
