Over the last few days, Americans helplessly looked on as Donald Trump embarrassed what was once a global leader on the world stage. Not only did America’s unworthy POTUS humiliate the country by looking like a complete imbecile and imposter alongside the other world leaders, but he managed to offend several of them during his time overseas. When Trump goes on his international tours, it’s hard to look away from the train wreck that inevitably follows him. Unfortunately, the same is happening now that he’s back on American soil again.
Trump hasn’t even been back in America for 24 hours after the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, and he’s already found a way to disgrace the country and make a statement about how little his job as POTUS means to him. Trump had basically just returned home, and immediately escaped to his golf club in Virginia.
CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller remarked on how disappointing and shameful this unusual behavior was:
“A spectacular July Sunday: Pres Trump is at his golf club in Virginia. By my count, today’s golf outing is Pres Trump’s 32nd visit to one of his golf clubs, his 12th to the club in Va. Obama – 9 GWBush – 3”
Trump has only been in office for about six months, but he’s already spent a very good portion of that golfing. Since January, Trump has taken 37 trips to his golf courses – more than several of the former presidents’ full terms combined.
Here’s the crazy thing: ever the hypocrite, let’s not forget about the several times that Trump condemned Barack Obama for golfing a few times during his two terms (not NEARLY as much as Trump has in 6 months). Here are just a few previous tweets out of several where Trump slammed Obama:
Considering that Trump’s approval rating is historically low and not even close to Obama’s, it’s safe to say that Trump should get the hell off the golf course and start actually doing his job. At least Obama actually performed his presidential duties and earned the relaxation time.
With his little golf outing combined with the series of pro-Russia, Putin-loving tweets Trump sent out this morning, it took less than 12 hours for Trump to humiliate America once again.
