Donald Trump never honored the life of Senator John McCain (R-AZ) even though his aides urged him to do so. They managed to get the American flag lowered, but only for a few hours. Now, POTUS has been trying one of his usual tactics, deflect.
In an early morning tweet, the president referred to “The Fake News Media” and how “very smart” Tiger Woods was:
‘The Fake News Media worked hard to get Tiger Woods to say something that he didn’t want to say. Tiger wouldn’t play the game – he is very smart. More importantly, he is playing great golf again!’
It was interesting that Trump pointed to a man who fell from grace for many years, yet made a comeback. Tiger Woods playing golf was more important to him than John McCain’s life of service to the nation. After all, the president has had his priorities. Woods tweeted:
‘“What you’re seeing is that I’m close and just one shot here, one shot there, per day, flips the momentum,” said Woods. He’s already looking forward to next week’s Dell Technologies Championship. – TGR’
The commander-in-chief did not abandon Woods when the news of his many, many affairs became public:
@TigerWoods’ “friends” were quick to abandon him in his time of crisis. Now Tiger knows who he can count on.’
Of course, the man sitting in the Oval Office was basically all about himself. When he expressed his sympathies to McCain’s family, he managed to include his own photo. With Woods, perhaps he saw a comrade.
‘I remained strong for
@TigerWoods during his difficult period. He rewarded me (and himself) by winning at Trump National Doral.’
