Trump: Fatally Shooting People is Just Like Missing a Golf Shot

He also thinks Biden is controlled by secret “dark forces.”

On Monday, Joe Biden delivered a speech in Pittsburgh in which he laid out the stark differences between a vote for him in November and a vote for Donald Trump. “This president,” he said, “long ago forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it. He may believe mouthing the words law and order makes him strong. But his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is. Does anyone believe there’ll be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?” What Biden didn’t say, but which was perhaps implied, was that Americans have a very simple decision to make: Do they want a sane, relatively lucid individual running the country, or would they like second helpings from the batshit buffet with a side of used syringes and a nightcap of late-stage dementia?

As if to emphasize this distinction, Trump appeared on Fox News last night for an interview with Laura Ingraham in which he offered his certifiably insane take on the issues of the day. Hours after defending Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen vigilante who killed two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the president explained that, while much of the country is horrified and currently protesting police brutality against Black people, he doesn’t see the shooting of unarmed civilians as that big of a deal. In fact? It’s basically on par with missing a shot in golf.

It’s just like golf, you know? Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes you fatally shoot a person, but at the end of the day it’s all gravy, baby.

Later, seemingly worried that he was coming off a bit too compos mentis, Trump launched into full conspiracy theory mode, informing Ingraham that Biden is controlled by secret dark forces, the details of which he can’t get into but trust him, they’re all too real. Biden, Trump asserted, is merely a puppet for “people that you’ve never heard of, people that are in the dark shadows…people that are on the streets, people that are controlling the streets.” And speaking of shadowy figures? “We had somebody get on a plane from a certain city this weekend,” Trump told Ingraham. “And in the plane, it was almost completely loaded with thugs, wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms, with gear and this and that.“ Asked for more information about the situation, the president demurred, claiming it was under investigation but that he’d tell the Fox host about it “sometime.”

2. not a missed golf shot

choking and therefore missing a 3 foot putt.

because 7 shots at point blank is sort of like a 3 foot putt. I mean how can you miss?

6. Translation: when Donny Two Scoops misses a three inch putt, he might shoot you 7 times in the back

He and Cheney should spend a weekend hunting and golfing together
