“Former US President Donald Trump has claimed victory in a tournament that took place last week at his West Palm Beach Golf Club in Florida, even though he was 600 miles away at a funeral in North Carolina when it began.”
How can Donald Trump claim to be the victor of a two-round golf tournament when he missed the first round? How did he accomplish this seemingly impossible sports feat? The cheater-in-chief simply took his score from a round he’d played two days earlier and announced that would count as the score for his opening round. When you are the owner of the golf resort where the tournament is being held, I guess you can engage in whatever shenanigans you choose to ensure victory. Taking a mulligan his one thing, claiming to win a golf event where you miss the opening round is a horse of a different color.
Trump even had the audacity to brag about his “victory” on his Truth Social media platform:”
“A great honor to have won the Senior Club Championship at Trump International Golf Club, one of the best courses in the country, in Palm Beach County, Florida. Competed against many fine golfers, and was hitting the ball long and straight.”
I can imagine Trump’s sycophants’ reaction:
“Thank you, Jesus, for directing the path of the golf ball to the hole, and blessing our Orange Savior with yet another victory. Please Lord don’t let the godless liberals succeed in tarnishing this great victory.”
I’m not surprised Trump claimed victory after missing the first round. Let’s not forget that this is the same con artist who claims to have won the 2020 presidential election even though he lost to Joe Biden in an electoral college and popular vote landslide.
Accusations of cheating on the course are par for the course for Trump. I hope Trump will lose in another landslide to Joe Biden in 2024 and he will spend the last days of his miserable life cheating on the golf course.
