President Trump Golfs For FOURTH Day in a Row After Tweeting It Was ‘Back to Work’

After President Donald Trump successfully saved Christmas, he triumphantly tweeted that he would be getting back to work the very next day, pulling up his bootstraps to make America great again “faster than anyone anticipated.”

Imagine everyone’s surprise when he showed up at the golf course the very next day to play a “quick” round. Now, imagine everyone’s surprise when he did this again the very next day, and, well, even the day after that.

Surely, the world thought, he could not golf for a fourth day in a row. Not even the most retired dads in the most retired parts of Florida can muster up four days in a row. That’s madness!

He is golfing for a fourth day in a row, swinging that nine iron like the very fate of the country depends on it.

And who are we to say? Maybe the very fate of the country does depend on it. Maybe every time Trump sinks a putt, a job creating angel gets its wings. Maybe aliens, the ones from space, have promised global annihilation unless the president can improve his handicap by two whole points. Stranger things have happened (no they haven’t.)

According to NBC News, this is his 88th day hitting the links since his inauguration.

Of course, we do not begrudge a man from letting off some steam. Trump and golf go together like peanut butter and jelly, or like two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted milkshake. Blow off steam if you need to. Being president is tough.

But, you know, this is the same guy who constantly belittled Barack Obama for doing the same exact thing, at a much decreased pace, making it a key tentpole of his campaign rallies, exclaiming to adoring crowds that he would not “have the time” to golf if elected, saying he would “just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off.”

Now that it’s the weekend, he’s definitely going for days five and six, right?
