On MLK Day, President Trump visits Trump golf course

Source: The Washington Post

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. President Trump's first stop Monday was Trump International Golf Club, apparently beginning the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday with golf rather than the charitable service the slain civil rights leader's family has urged as the best way to memorialize him.

The morning after declaring I'm not a racist, Trump began his Monday the same way he has begun each day of the three-day holiday weekend: with tweets sent before leaving his private Mar-a-Lago estate and then a short motorcade to the golf club.

It was not clear whether he planned to perform service later in the day; his public schedule is blank. A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the president's plans, including whether he was playing golf.

21. It is best that he not desecrate a holy place by his presence.

He could be putting the entire congregation in jeopardy of a lighting strike. He reminds me of the commercial put out by Allstate.

3. Just as well...

Why debase MLK Day with a racist President pretending to not be a racist? I'd rather not hear Trump read another scripted lip-service speech where he ad-libs at the end with "congratulations" to the slain civil rights leader.

6. His base will be so happy!

His racist base will love that he is not doing anything to honor Dr. King. He continues to play to the base.

8. "his public schedule is blank" - there's a hell of a lot more than just his schedule which is blank

I'm trying to decide which aspect of 45*s personality is worse, his obvious blatant racism or the fact that he just flat out doesn't give a shit about anyone other than himself. It seems like he could forgo golfing for JUST ONE DAY..... but we know where his priorities lie.

12. Considering what he pulled at the Code Talker ceremony...

This bastard would probably make sure there was a picture of Jesse Helms over his left shoulder during the ceremony. Let him golf. It will cut down on embarrassment later.

18. Navajo didn't travel on the trail of tears.


To insinuate that Andrew Jackson's picture should be insensitive to the Navajo is being historically ignorant.
If instead of Navajo, they were Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminoles then you might have a point.

Also to lump all native American's together as a group is akin to lumping Historical Enemies of Italians, Germans, French and the English as a single group

15. Of course he's at a golf course...where else would he be? He's

incapable of anything else (opps, other than running off his mouth, which needs to be washed out w/ soap)...if he can't say anything nice about anyone, then shut up...
