President Trump was back on the golf course Sunday, marking his 13th time hitting the links in the first nine weeks of his presidency. That seemed to be the case on Sunday when he was at Trump National Golf Club in Virginia for less than an hour.
Also odd was President Trump's tweet Saturday night to his supporters to watch Judge Jeanine Pirro's show.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer recently defended the president's golf outings by saying he takes meetings and calls at the club. On 21 of the 66 days he has been president, Trump has visited a property that has his name in the entrance, reports the Washington Post.
Top Senate Democrat promises fight to block Trump high court pick
While Senators come and go, the 49-year-old Gorsuch could serve on the Court for thirty or forty years, deeply distorting the law. Expect the Democrats to filibuster every SCOTUS nominee that President Trump produces.
However, it's no secret that Trump might have also used the time to play golf. After describing a visit to the "devastation" in flood-overcome Louisiana, Trump proclaimed that Obama "ought to get off the golf course and get down there".
CBS correspondent Mark Knoller, who has kept records of presidential daily activities for several administrations, noted on Monday that the White House rarely confirms whether Trump is playing golf or not.
During Trump's campaign speech in Virginia last August he said he wouldn't have "time to go play golf". In contrast to Trump, who golfs nearly exclusively at his own properties, appaemtluy causing taxpayer dollars the end his trips to be channeled into his own privately-held company, Obama never golfed at a course that he owns - because he doesn't own any. The White House said Trump was in meetings, though photos emerged of him riding in a golf cart and wearing golf attire Saturday. Trump was said the prior weekend to be having weekend meetings at his Mar-a-Lago Club, which he did.
