Thanksgiving weekend marked President Donald Trump’s 81st excursion to a golf course since he took the oath of office a mere ten months ago. And while the president continues to come under fire for his frequent pastime, he now appears to be getting a bit defensive.
After Turkey call I will be heading over to Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter, to play golf (quickly) with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson. Then back to Mar-a-Lago for talks on bringing even more jobs and companies back to the USA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2017
After the President’s Turkey Day tweet, Twitter took him to task.
"Quickly" that made my day. You sound like you are having some remorse hahahahaha— Juan C Elizarraras (@allbewell27) November 24, 2017
How exactly do you play golf quickly? Is it miniature golf for your tiny hands?— Bj (@bjpluslj) November 25, 2017
That's all you do is golf. You're the real turkey here.— Sheila Taylor Clark (@SoShaydee) November 24, 2017
Can you believe that,with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf.Worse than Carter— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2014
Nothing wrong with a little golf break with how hard Trump has been working!— Joey Mannarino (@Realjmannarino) November 24, 2017
Good for you! Multitasking. Thanks for working so hard for our country.— Hillary hater (@dollartime2) November 24, 2017
I thought you said you wouldn't have time to golf? So busy? Nahhh— Queen Elisabeth (@QueenElisabeth) November 24, 2017
If Trump stays the course, he may end up clocking nearly triple the time on the green as former President Barack Obama during his first year in office.
