If there’s one thing we can be sure of in this topsy-turvy world, it’s that President Donald Trump absolutely fucking loves golf, more than just about anything else on Earth. Most people think his golf habit is pretty self-indulgent! But to hear White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tell it, the president is hitting the links for us, the people of America.
“I think [the benefit of Trump’s time golfing] would certainly be developing deeper and better relationships with members of Congress, in which those relationships have helped pushed forward the president’s agenda,” Huckabee Sanders explained, when asked what, exactly, Trump had accomplished on the golf course. She then mentioned the recently passed tax bill.
“The success of that came from the strong relationships that the president has,” she continued. “And he’s played golf with a number of senators, and used that time certainly to accomplish that.”
Golly! Who could have imagined using golf as an opportunity to wheel and deal? We sure are lucky to have such an out-of-the-box deal maker in the Oval Office!
Her questioner, Yahoo’s Hunter Walker, noted that the White House has been less than forthcoming about just when, and how much, Trump actually plays golf. He asked why it seems the administration “has some kind of issue” discussing Trump’s time on the golf course.
“I think it’s the press that has an issue with his time on the course,” Huckabee Sanders shot back, before rattling off a list of impressive-sounding accomplishments from the president’s first year in office.
“I think we’ve had an extremely successful 2017,” she concluded. “Some of that’s due to the relationship building that he was able to do there.”
See folks, Trump’s just been hitting holes in one...for America!
