While Americans Are Dying, Trump Is Golfing. Again.

For the 5th time in 9 days days, Trump is golfing. No comment on Niger, the California wildfires or meaningful efforts in Puerto Rico.
While Americans Are Dying, Trump Is Golfing. Again.

Donald Trump swore he would not golf as much as President Obama. But guess what? That was a lie.

Thanks to we have a running tally of Trump's visits to golf courses - total visits, costs to taxpayers, etc. And guess what? Today he hit 69 visits. Oh and he has golfed more days than he has worked* in the last 9 days - 5 golf visits, 4 days "working" aka tweeting and watching Fox News in his bathrobe.

The worst part? No, not the wasteful spending of taxpayer money. No, not his terrible golf swing. No, not his inability to find khakis that actually fit his rotund...behind.

The worst part? Trump, the supposed "Commander In Chief", has not uttered a word about the 4 dead soldiers killed in Niger. And when the fourth soldier arrived at Dover Air Force Base, Trump skipped the somber moment with Lindsey Graham.

Americans are literally dying and Trump is golfing. He can't even be bothered to tweet about the 4 dead soldiers.

Oh, and he is equally silent about the California wildfires, which have killed 40. He doesn't mind dead Californians, it seems, because they voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton and therefore they aren't "his people."

Can you help us out?
