Trump Installed 'Golf Simulator' at White House

Trump Installed ‘Golf Simulator’ at White House

February 13, 2019 at 11:41 am EST By Taegan Goddard

“President Trump has installed a room-sized ‘golf simulator’ game at the White House, which allows him to play virtual rounds at courses all over the world by hitting a ball into a large video screen,” the Washington Post reports.

“That system replaced an older, less sophisticated golf simulator that had been installed under President Obama… Trump’s system cost about $50,000, and was put in during the last few weeks in a room in his personal quarters.”

This could explain all of that "Executive Time"

From the Gloucester Times Editorial Page

President’s actions shameful
To the editor:

For me, Veterans Day is not only a day of remembrance but also a day of appreciation and great sadness. I am proud that we as a people have chosen to honor those we have lost. Proud also that we continue to honor all veterans, especially those who carry physical and mental scars as a result of their service to our country. I am heartened by the fact that the people of our nation do not forget -- even if the leader of our country can not be bothered!

As someone who served for more than 30 years, I was appalled and disgusted by the actions of President Trump this past week. I was appalled when he bypassed honoring those who died in the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War I, but was shocked
even more when he ignored my brothers and sisters at Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day. His excuses were as believable as his draft dodging heel spurs!

Shame on you, Mr. President.

What I love about Northern Virginia

I am sitting in la Madeleine, a French bistro watching a young lady in a hijab speaking to her co-workers in Spanish. An additional co-worker comes in with some type of home made Salvadoran sweet bread that she is sharing and they all seem to enjoy.

There is a sense of community, all hard at work early in the morning, enjoying each other’s company. It is nice to see.

Congresswoman Tsongas to retire

US Representative Niki Tsongas said Wednesday she will not seek another term in Congress.
“I feel it is a good time to go,’’ she told the Globe as she prepared to release a statement announcing her decision.
The Lowell Democrat was elected to the seat that was being vacated in 2007 by then-US representative Marty Meehan. She serves on the US House Armed Services Committee, where she has worked on sexual abuse and veterans issues.

Having failed in his quest to make President Obama a 1 term President

Senator MCConnell instead chooses to act as if he accomplished his goal, and will try to keep the President of the United States from appointing a Justice to the Supreme Court. What other presidential duties will he deny him of... What other parts of the Constitution will he ignore over his blind hatred (not color blind though) of this President.

No matter who wins the Primary, we need to elect a Democrat in the General Election! And bring a Democratic Senate with her ( sorry, I remain a Hillary supporter but will happily vote for either in the general as they both are so far superior to anything we will get on the republican side).
