After the humiliating failure of the American Health Care Act on Friday, President Trump has fled the White House.

According to a tweet from NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell, Trump is at Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Virginia. Presumably in order to quell critics who have accused the President of golfing every weekend, Trump’s aides have also informed the press that he “will have meetings in the clubhouse.”

Another NBC reporter, Bradd Jaffy, also commented on the news, saying that this is the President’s “8th consecutive weekend visit to a Trump-owned property.”

At this point, no one is particularly surprised by the fact that Trump has retreated to the golf course yet again. However, pointing out the irony in the amount of time the President spends on the golf course will never get old.

Throughout President Obama’s two terms, Trump attacked him mercilessly for playing the occasional game of golf.

Now, though, the tables have turned, and Trump is using “the game of golf” differently. Last week, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that Trump’s golfing is different from Obama’s because “how you use the game of golf is something that he’s talked about.”

When pressed to explain exactly how Trump is using the game of golf differently, Spicer responded by saying that “the president is entitled to a bit of privacy at some point.”

Hypocrisy aside, many people have also expressed concerns about Trump using the golf course to talk about important things like homeland security and healthcare.

Earlier this month, Trump held a surprise “part of a Cabinet meeting” at his Virginia golf club — the same one he’s visiting this weekend — to discuss “the military, border security, health care and the economy.”

Included in the meeting were Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. The wives of Shulkin and Ross also attended, along with Mnuchin’s fiancee.

According to Spicer, Trump “wanted to take some key members of his team out and have a working lunch to talk about the economy [and] some of the issues we’re dealing with with homeland security.”

Who knows what else was discussed — and will be again this weekend as Trump licks his wounds — in this less-than secure setting.
