This is just too funny. Russian President Vladimir Putin knows the way to the president’s heart is through flattery. Saudi Arabia won the favor of Donald Trump with an ornate procession. Even French President Emmanuel Macron buttered up 45 with a razzle-dazzle parade. Senator Lindsey Graham outdid all of them.
With a straight face, the South Carolina Republican tweeted:
‘Really enjoyed a round of golf with President Donald Trump today. President Trump shot a 73 in windy and wet conditions!’
Graham tweeted a second southern-gushing tweet right after the first one, and he referred to his own ill-fated run in the 2016 presidential race:
‘How bad did he beat me? I did better in the presidential race than today on the golf course!’
A Washington correspondent for the Toronto Star could not resist responding to Graham’s tweet:
Then, Dale listed the top scores for the Senior PGA Championship:
‘That course is a par-72. The Senior PGA was held there this year. Look at the scores of the world’s top seniors.’
MSNBC’s host of All In With Chris Hayes jumped onto the joke:
‘Would’ve been much funnier if Lindsey Graham had said POTUS shot an 18.’
Yes, it would have been funnier, but it was still very funny. The Twitter world had a ball with this one. Check out some of our favorites below:
