Say what you want about CNN, and there’s definitely plenty to say, but the network has been extremely active when it comes to calling out Donald Trump, his administration, and the seemingly non-stop insanity that’s constantly emanating from the colossal embarrassment we’re all having to currently endure.
This, of course, has made CNN a primary target of Trump’s daily whining about “fake news” and whatever absurd conspiracies he feels like spreading at any particular moment.
Then again, any news organization that doesn’t serve as his own personal version of state-run media is “fake news.”
Well, in a rather hilarious story, CNN reported that there was apparently a large truck parked in front of a clearing outside a golf course they had filmed Trump playing at earlier in the week, thus blocking the network’s ability to get film of him playing golf on Wednesday — again. After he tweeted that it was time to get back to work.
“This may seem trivial, but it is important to get video of the president as he does these things on a daily basis,” CNN’s Dan Merica told Don Lemon. “The president and the White House have tried to obscure the fact that President Trump golfs on a regular basis.”
Lemon then pointed out the hypocrisy of Trump frequently criticizing Barack Obama for playing golf when he actually plays the game more than his predecessor.
In fact, during his first year in office, Trump’s spent roughly one-third of his time at one of his properties (111 visits) and at least 25 percent of his time at one of his own personal golf courses (85 visits).
For the record Obama played 333 rounds of golf — in eight years.
So if you only count the 85 times he’s visited just his own golf courses during his first year in office (which is still low-balling it because he’s played golf at courses he didn’t own and we still have nearly a month left until that entire year is complete), Trump’s on pace to play more golf in four years than Obama did during his entire eight years as president.
Yes, the guy who frequently criticized Obama for playing golf — while campaigning on the premise that, if elected, he’d be too busy to ever play — is on pace to play more than twice as much golf as he did.
Obviously, the best part of this story is that Trump’s so completely full of crap, and such a hypocritical, lying coward, that he’s doing whatever he can to prevent the media from filming him while playing.
That way, of course, he can cry “fake news” whenever he’s called out for being a lazy, pathologically-lying hypocrite. Which is exactly what he is.
