Trump golfs at his Virginia club amid the coronavirus pandemic

Source: CNN

(CNN) President Donald Trump on Saturday was seen golfing at his Virginia club, marking his first visit to one of his golf properties since March amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The presidential motorcade arrived at Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, at 10:27 a.m. ET, according to pool reports. CNN's Khalil Abdallah reported that the Secret Service members with Trump at the golf course were wearing masks, although the President and his golfing partners were not. The President was seen riding alone in his golf cart and a caddy didn't appear to be with him, Abdallah reported.

At Friday's White House briefing, Dr. Deborah Birx, a White House coronavirus task force official, said Americans should take this weekend to enjoy being outside, but they should do so with precautions.

"So please as you go out this weekend, understand you can go out, you can be outside. You can play golf, you can play tennis with marked balls. You can go to the beaches if you stay 6 feet apart, but remember that that is your space and that's a space that you need to protect and ensure that you're social distanced for others," Birx said.

Coast Guard, partner agencies to activate Montgomery County, Maryland, security zone

BALTIMORE ó Coast Guard and partner agency personnel are scheduled to enforce the Potomac River, Montgomery County, security zone beginning Saturday at approximately 9 a.m. in accordance with the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (33 CFR 165.557).

Under the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (33 CFR 165.33), the regulation prohibits any unauthorized person or vessel from entering or remaining in this security zone while it is in effect.

A transit lane exists along the Maryland shoreline to facilitate the use of the waterway. Persons and vessel operators who intend to enter or transit the security zone while the zone is being enforced must obtain authorization from the Captain of the Port Maryland-National Capital Region or his designated representative.

To request permission to enter or transit the security zone, the local on-scene coordinator, the COTP Maryland-NCR or designated representatives can be contacted via marine band radio VHF-FM channels 13 or 16 (156.8 MHz), by calling 410-576-2693, or by visually or verbally hailing the on-scene law enforcement vessel enforcing the zone.

2. Just got off a call to my cousin in Europe.

"The U.S. is of no consequence anymore on the world stage." is the view from Europe. Europeans hope the U.S. will recover itself. The Russians are nearly bankrupt. China is the single superpower.

Have a nice golf game, Spanky. Be sure to cheat so you win.

7. Trump goes way beyond cheating...

Golf cheaters are few and far between, and they're usually discreet about giving themselves a few shots per round.

But Trump? His hacker swing shows he was never a very good golfer, even in his prime, let alone now with his fattened, arthritic body. An honest golfer at his level shoots about 100. But he recently turned in a score of 68 on a course PGA rated at 75, and claims a 1-2 handicap, which is Tour Professional level.

Golf cheaters will, at best, be able to knock about 5 strokes off their game. Trump knocks off 32 strokes. That's not cheating - that is delusional.

38. ANOTHER FUCKING LIE

I've been an active golfer most of my adult life, and I can tell you one thing: "IT" claims he can drive the ball 280 yards.
BULL FUCKING SHIT. I watched the video of his swing. He can only generate MAYBE 75mph on that swing which generates to a distance of about 175 yards AT BEST.
ANOTHER FUCKING LIE.

Trump is golfing today.

In 2014 on Fox and Friends he criticized Obama for golfing when there were *two cases* of Ebola in the United States saying, "it sends the wrong signal" and he should have given up golf as president "to really focus on the job."

33. He still plays every day...

on his $70,000 golf simulator in the White House. You can bet your last dollar on that. I'd wager he spends more time on that than he does on presidential business.

for a break, after all the hard work he has put in (yeah, right). What a total waste of space he is. I am sure there were people among the almost 100,000 souls that have been lost because of his incompetence, who would have loved to be on the course today. Or to even be alive with their families. Total disaster of a president, or even a human being.

After sleeping and eating this may be the most benign thing he can do for the country and the world. Having this guy sitting at his desk, in a meeting or watching more Foxed Up news is not proving safe or productive.

whenever he's on a golf course, the world is a safer place. If we can just keep him distracted until next January, maybe he won't blow up the world. And cake, please give him lots of "beautiful chocolate cake".

Cliff Schecter @cliffschecter
So exactly 12 Americans will die for every hole Trump plays. Which I'm sure is weighing heavily on his mind as he does..


The Hoarse Whisperer @HoarseWisperer
If today is like yesterday, 216 Americans will die of coronavirus while Trump plays golf.

nearly that much? Of course he wasn't lying rather he clearly meant his goal was to set the all time record both for a President to play golf as well as the cost to the US taxpayers.

....I think the United States government should seize the golf course and build a giant memorial to every last American who has died or will die from COVID-19. King of like the Vietnam Memorial. Put the names of every person who died in the United States along with their age and race so when neo-Fuckopotomus-Humpers come along in 20, 30, or 50 years they can't whitewash his bullshit handling of this whole crisis.

Just remember that Trump does not allow the Secret Service free use of his clubís golf carts. The Secret Service has to rent them, at exorbitant taxpayer expense, for the privilege of protecting Trump while he plays golf.
