Two major magazines are teeing off on President Donald Trump this week over his habit of teeing it up on the links
Both The New Yorker and The Economist have golf on their covers this week, as the President has visited one of his golf courses for the 13th time in his first 71 days in office.
Here’s The New Yorker‘s cover treatment of Trump on the links:

And here’s The Economist‘s take on Trump, whose presidency they deem to be stuck in the sand:

As we’ve posted about previously, Trump’s penchant for playing the game is a frequent source of fodder for his critics — particularly given Trump’s constant criticisms of former President Barack Obama for hitting the links during his administration.
Trump has visited one of his golf courses almost every weekend of his presidency. On several occasions, he’s been out on the links both Saturday and Sunday. Through the first 70 days of his administration, Trump played golf once every seven days. (He apparently only took meetings and did not actually play during either of his trips to his course in Virginia last weekend.) President Obama, by comparison, played once every 8.77 days while he was in office.
