Via The Hill: Trump: ‘I couldn’t care less about golf’
“It would be much better if people would understand that I could go other places that I have. But then they hit me for relaxing. And I don’t want to be known as a person that relaxes because I am working hard and I am working hard for the people.”

Another bad lie. Par for the course.
Golf? In today’s (Sunday) San Francisco Chronicle, there was an anecdote from a guy who claimed to have golfed with Trump on one occasion, and he said that Trump’s nickname is Pelé because of his footwork in kicking his ball to a better lie.
Many many moons ago as I wrote for OTB Sports I got credentialed to cover the ADT Championship in West Palm Beach played at Trump International Golf Course. Trump Intl is a very hilly course for one located in South Florida.
Trump was always very visible at the tournament. In fact he was in the Press Area one time getting some of the food and I was right behind him.
Did you piss in your pants?
I presume this was the non fake news press?
