Trump Just Dedicated A Golf Trophy He Didn’t Win to Hurricane Victims. Twitter Explodes

The man who criticized his predecessor for spending too much time playing golf and then proceeded to spend over $70 million of taxpayer dollars on visits to his own private golf courses since his inauguration has now added insult to injury.

After spending the weekend dividing his time between sending out tweets attacking critics of his painfully slow response to the disaster in Puerto Rico, continuing his feud with NFL players who think that they have the right to express their opinions that police shouldn’t routinely shoot unarmed black men, and bringing the country closer to a nuclear confrontation with North Korea, President Trump took his exhausted tiny thumbs from the golf greens at his Bedminster, New Jersey country club to the golf greens at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City for the biennial Presidents Cup golf tournament, because, priorities, you know?

He took the opportunity to dedicate the winner’s trophy (something that usually the actual winner of the trophy gets to do) to the people of Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida still recovering from recent hurricane devastation, except in his own inimitable fractured syntax.

“On behalf of all of the people of Texas, and all of the people — if you look today and see what is happening, how horrible it is but we have it under really great control — Puerto Rico and the people of Florida who have really suffered over this last short period of time with the hurricanes, I want to just remember them,” Trump said.

“And we’re going to dedicate this trophy to all of those people that went through so much that we love — a part of our great state, really part of our great nation,” he blathered on, as usual unable to string together a single coherent sentence.

The cognitive dissonance of our nation’s ostensible leader gleefully enjoying a day at the golf tourney while millions of American citizens are without a consistent supply of power, food, and water, naturally led a few people to express their opinions on Twitter.

The only comforting thought is that Trump hasn’t explicitly called for the repeal of the First Amendment yet. He has, however, mused aloud about revising libel laws and told employers to fire their employees who defy his ideas on how they should respect the flag, despite the fact that it is a federal offense to use his political office to do so.
