Trump Defends Golfing in Scotland: It’s ‘My Primary Form of Exercise!’

President Donald Trump arrived in Glasgow, Scotland Friday, and it’s clear that there’s one thing at the top of his mind – golf.

“I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf – my primary form of exercise!” Trump declared on Twitter Saturday morning.

Because nothing says exercise like riding around in a golf cart and getting up every so often to whack a ball a few hundred feet.

“The weather is beautiful, and this place is incredible!” Trump added, not at all in an attempt to get people to pay money to play golf at his resort.

Trump claimed Friday that he was at this very golf course the day before Brexit, which is provably false. He also said he predicted Brexit, which – wait for it – he didn’t.

Seemingly as an afterthought, Trump added that he would be going to Helsinki, Finland Monday to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Because the contours of that meeting are not important to the health of the free world or anything.
