Golfing while Palm Beach burns

Trump spends a very hefty percentage of his time on the golf course – hefty as in around 20%.

In one way that’s a good thing, because while he’s golfing he’s not shit-tweeting or Putin-kissing or world-destroying. In another way it’s contemptible, because he decided to take on this formidable job and he’s not even giving it his full attention. (An even heftier percentage of his time is taken up with watching Fox News.)

CNN has collected some figures.

According to CNN’s tally, he has spent at least 252 days at a Trump golf club and 333 days at a Trump property as President.

This year alone, he spent at least 86 days at a golf club, despite a late start due to the government shutdown. The golf excursions have included the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia; his Bedminister, New Jersey, golf club; Trump National Doral outside Miami; and Trump International Doonbeg in Ireland.

All the ones at his own clubs mean more $$$ in his pocket, which violates a law.

During a Christmas Eve call with US service members, Trump was asked about his holiday plans. “I’m at a place called Mar-a-Lago, we call it the southern White House,” he said. “I really pretty much work. That’s what I like to do.”

We do not call it the southern White House.

He does not pretty much work. He plays golf and watches Fox and hangs with his cronies. When would he find time to work?

333 days out of 1075…yes I call that a hefty chunk.
