The 5 times Trump went golfing instead of reaching out to families of 4 fallen soldiers

For nearly two weeks, Trump refused to mention the four soldiers killed in Niger. But he did spend nearly 20 hours playing golf.

Only by monumentally screwing up his belated effort to reach out to families of the four U.S. troops killed by ISIS during a raid in Niger has Donald Trump been able to obscure one of the more stunning aspects surrounding his callous behavior: the fact that he went golfing five times before he ever got around to extending any sympathies.

During a nearly two-week window when Trump refused to acknowledge the four deaths, he golfed five times at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia. He golfed with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). He golfed with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). All told, Trump spent nearly 20 hours on the links.

The deadly Niger raid occurred on Oct. 4. Trump golfed on Oct. 7, 8, 9, 14, and 15. The outings represented the 69th, 70th, 71st, 72nd,†and 73rd†rounds that Trump has played since being inaugurated. Trump has spent nearly one-fourth of his presidency at golf courses.

*****

Trump was only forced to acknowledge the troops when pressed by journalists about his silence. Thatís when he opted to attack President Barack Obama by lying about how the former president handled soldier condolences. Then Trump offended the family of a slain Green Beret with a dismissive phone call on Tuesday.

But really, all you need to know about Trumpís callous mindset was his endless trips to his golf resort. That forever remains his top priority.

2. Full on Sociopathy

This is a man who would gladly kill 10 soldiers if it meant he could spend only an extra hole on the golf course. All that matters to Trump is what Trump wants. The only reason he pretends to show an ounce of humanity is because he has to in order to not be more of an outcast.

He is more dangerous to humanity than people can imagine, he would not blink at nuking the whole planet if he thought it would benefit himself in any way, or so he could avoid something like impeachment.
