Trump is on pace to blow Obama away in terms of travel expenses and golf outings. Trump is on pace to out spend Obama's 8 years in just one year. He is golfing about once every 6 days compared to Obama's once every 9 days.

Is anyone really surprised by this, from our double talking, hypocritical Blowhard-In-Chief?

It doesn't matter....that's the thing. Trump made a huge issue about it during Obama's presidency, and now he's golfing more than Obama did. Like I said, I don't have an issue with it, but the irony is striking.

Woodrow Wilson played 1200 rounds of golf in 8 years
Dwight Eisenhower played 800 rounds in 8 years.

I would suspect that Trump is doing a lot of business on the golf course to start out with and it would slow down later.

Could be wrong, either way I dont care but it is funny to see the left wing media defend "their boy" and bash Trump any chance they get. Maybe they will start making fun of Trump wearing Foot Joy shoes instead of Nike!!

Wouldn't that give em a leg up!

Yeah, you're right Alpha. Not a big deal. Trump ONLY tweeted about Obama golfing 26 times, which isn't many for Trump.

'

You're completely missing the point. The point isn't how much golf Obama or Trump or any other president played or or is playing. It's that Trump blasted Obama for playing so much golf, and now he's playing way more than Obama ever did. Do you not get the hypocrisy in that? The only thing that makes it relevant at all, is that it's just another example of Trump saying s**t without any regard to his ability or intent to back up his words. No one cares about that when the subject is golfing, but it could be much more impactful within another context.

He's been in office two and a half months, and the left is calculating the rate he golfs and how it compares to Obama over 8 years.
Ya, I'd say that's petty.

Right...apparently it wasn't so petty when it was Obama who was doing all the golfing. At least Trump didn't seem to think it was petty, or he wouldn't have talked about it so much.

No idea, I don't pay attention to things that don't matter like Twitter, the left etc

If you don't follow Twitter how could you possibly know who Donald Trump is?

It's petty regardless of whether it comes from the right or left. If Trump did it, it was petty. And it's still petty now that the left is doing it.

There are plenty of legitimate things to criticise Trump for, without having to reach into his 2013 golf tweeets.

The left is giving an example of how utterly hypocritical or ridiculous Trump is by pointing this out. I wouldn't call it petty. I'd call it hilarious or a burn or just desserts.

If Obama had said petty things about Bush, then gone out and done more of the same. The right would be perfectly fine in pointing it out.
