Trump Tries To Hide His Golfing With Absurd Southern White House Lie

Trump Tries To Hide His Golfing With Absurd Southern White House Lie


Trump went golfing while a US embassy was under attack and then lied while calling his private club the Southern White House.

Trump tweeted:

@realDonaldTrump
Very good meeting on the Middle East, the Military, and Trade. Heading back to The Southern White House (Mar-a-Lago!). Updates throughout the day.
11:51 AM · Dec 31, 2019·Twitter for iPhone


The president’s lie was a cover-up that defied common sense. If Trump needed to hold meetings with the military after the embassy attack, why did he go to a golf course? He could have held the meetings at his private club. A president doesn’t go to a golf course to hold vital meetings during an international crisis.

Trump went to his golf course to play golf.

The president knows that he isn’t doing his job and that most Americans will be outraged by him golfing as an American embassy was attacked.

Trump’s private club is not a Southern White House. It is not government property. His club is a for-profit entity. There is no “Southern White House.” It is a private club where Trump hangs out and bilks taxpayers out of millions of dollars.

Instead of protecting and serving his country, Donald Trump played golf while an embassy was under attack.

1. The rump benghazi...

where was idiot rump when all of this crap was happening? On a f**king golf course, where else? Hypocrites. We need to have at least 8 House Committee meetings to investigate what in the hell was rump doing while this attack was happening to an American embassy...and have HRC chair each and every one of them.

15. but Hillary did nothing wrong with Benghazi. This is more like "My Pet Goat"

-- the children's book George W Bush kept on reading while the twin towers and the Pentagon were under attack.
I hope that this brings him down though. Complete indifference to American lives under attack.

2. His cult doesn't care at all about any of this.

It is true. They simply do not care that he is golfing instead of attending to his POTUS duties and they don't care that all the money for these outings are tax payer funded and goes back into the moron's own bank account eventually. They should care but the reality is they don't. He can do no wrong in their eyes.

6. I was at the Rubber Ducky car wash today 11:30 to 12

It's on Southern blvd in west palm. The police were blocking all the cross roads, I did not see shitbirds limo but I did see ambulance and a bunch of SUV speeding by headed toward mar a shithole. So I assume he left golf around then.

Mar a shithole is a country club not a private mansion, it's not even a real hotel and has no golf course on site. He ain't that rich.

I'm in Wellington but how different could the weather be 10 miles away, esp in winter? He wouldn't want to get wet, his hair would collapse or he might just turn green and melt like his crush the wicked witch. But by 1 the clouds were gone and clear skies all afternoon and the low 55 tonite, nice!

They HATE it when he comes to town. Roads closed. Shops lose money. Traffic effed up all over the place. Choppers overhead. He COSTS the taxpayers of West Palm a lot of $$$$. And of course, he never makes any mention of all the loss of revenue to all the shop owners in the area.

39. It was actually built in the 1920s and willed to the National Park Service

for use as a Winter White House. Oh the irony! NPS returned it to the trust because it was too expensive to keep it up. Congre An act of Congress in 1981 made it official.

It has 85 bedroomswso it could be a place that members could use to host guests or if a president were in residence, for hosting dignitaries. (like the big dog from China with the perfect chocolate cake)

9. He didn't stay long, so I assume some advisors--or maybe Lindsey Graham--warned him that he would

really take a nasty PR hit it he was caught golfing during an embassy attack.

That's the only thing that would cause him to cut short his golf game.

11. The First Time Trump Went Golfing At Mar-A-Lago in Jan. 2017, Fux News Referred To It As...

..."The Winter White House." I wanted to throw a shoe at my TV.

Trump had actually referred to it as 'The Winter White House' before he was officially sworn in. He tweeted a picture of himself sitting at a desk with a blank pad of paper and a sharpie, claiming he was 'working on his inaugural address at the Winter White House.

I'm sure he and his half-wit followers like to think of him as a sort of Kublai Khan, with a 'winter palace' in Xanadu.

They both called their spreads the Western White House.

This is just one of the privileges that accrues to Republican presidents.

Of course, if President Obama would have done this, the outrage would have blown the roof off the Fox News studios.

27. Check this out! history of Mar-a-Lago

Mar-a-Lago (/ˌmɑːrəˈlɑːɡoʊ/) is a resort and national historic landmark in Palm Beach, Florida, built from 1924 to 1927 by cereal-company heiress and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post.

At the time of her death in 1973, Post bequeathed the property to the National Park Service, hoping it could be used for state visits or as a Winter White House, but because the costs of maintaining the property exceeded the funds provided by Post, and it was difficult to secure the facility (as it is located in the flight path of Palm Beach Airport), the property was returned to the Post Foundation by an Act of Congress in 1981.[5]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mar-a-Lago for more information. Interestingly, during the time it was in possession of NPS, Nixon did not use it because he preferred "The Florida White House" on Key Biscayne

As Charlie Pierce likes to say "History is so cool"

The first president to have a "summer White House" was Cleveland and it was on Cape Cod! I have a vague memory of other presidents having alternate "White Houses" located on their own property..

None of this negates the fact that #45 describing the place as the "Southern White House" cheapens the whole history of alternate "White Houses" attributed to past Presidents. (Probably it was started by the press, with Cleveland, you know )

29. followup found a wiki about all the homes and secondary homes

This is some fun reading, with lots of little tidbits.

It seems the press did create the nicknames for the alternate residences of the various presidents (like FDR's "Little White House" in Warm Springs GA for example)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_residences_of_presidents_of_the_United_States

I repeat, #45 cheapens the whole concept maybe because he was harping on about Mar a Lago being the "Southern White House" as if he thought it up and no one else had ever had an alternative"White House"

The irony of its original owner intending for the place to be a second Presidential residence is just incredible. She is probably rolling in her grave.

One has to be a REAL POTUS to claim any of their properties as an auxiliary WH. Trump is a fraud, therefore, Mar-a-Lago is simply another home in Palm Beach.
