Hillary Clinton trolls Donald Trump for playing too much golf – SB Nation

Donald Trump never missed a chance to taunt his predecessor with tweets about his love of the fairways. On Wednesday, No. 45 took heat from an increasingly Twitter-happy critic for his own golf hobby — an avocation that takes him to the course pretty often.

Hillary Clinton, who lost the electoral vote to Trump, retweeted a Washington Post chart that showed the 45th POTUS spent 25 of his first 744 hours in the Oval on the golf course.

The Post estimated that Trump was at his his Mar-a-Lago resort for about a quarter of his first month in office, including a full day’s worth of golf.

Which would be about par for the course for a president — were it not for Trump’s constant bashing of Barack Obama for hitting the links.

“I’m going to be working for you,” then-candidate Trump said in August. “I’m not going to have time to go play golf.”

The president’s aides claimed he played only “a few holes” last Saturday and Sunday, but Rory McIlroy spilled the beans on that alternative fact. McIlroy, in his first round of golf since sustaining a fractured rib in January, acknowledged that he played 18 holes with the president at Trump International in West Palm Beach last Sunday, according to a post from No Laying Up.

McIlroy’s admission forced the administration to own up to its fib. “He intended to play a few holes and decided to play longer,” said a Trump spokesperson. “He also had a full day of meetings, calls, and interviews [for the new national security adviser].”

Trump and his minions may prefer not to divulge the number of his golf dates, but Clinton and others want you to know the score.
