The president got caught golfing, despite the fact that he insisted he was getting “back to work” the day after Christmas. Now, CNN says that Trump is back on the golf course, only this time CNN’s camera’s have been blocked by a large moving truck.
Donald Trump, who spent his entire presidential campaign disparaging President Obama’s “frequent” golf trips, has already played more golf than Obama did in his entire eight years in the White House. According to CNN, Trump has spent 86 days of his presidency at golf clubs.
On Wednesday, the former reality TV star was back on the green, playing golf once again. CNN stationed itself outside the golf course, on public property, to get footage of the president, but found that a huge white truck was now blocking the course and any hope of getting a shot of Trump hitting balls with sticks.
CNN’s Don Lemon spoke to reporter Dan Merica, who told him that he believes someone from the White House is responsible for ordering the truck that ended up blocking CNN cameras’ views.
‘This may seem trivial but it is important to get video of the president as he does these things on a daily basis. The president and the White House have tried to obscure the fact that President Trump golfs on a regular basis.’
Lemon agreed and pointed out that Barack Obama was frequently filmed golfing as well, a fact that Trump used in his campaign to rally against, insisting he would never dare to golf if he were to be elected president.
