PGA Turns on Trump

President Donald Trump is having a no good, terrible, very bad week. His "Stop the Steal" rally backfired, bigly, he lost his beloved Twitter account, and now the PGA is looking to strip Trump Bedminster of the 2022 PGA Championship Tournament, even though he just awarded the Medal of Freedom to 3 golfers just after Congress certified Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election!


A day after his supporters rioted inside the U.S. Capitol, President Donald Trump turned his attention to golf.

Trump on Thursday awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to retired professional golfers Annika Sorenstam and Gary Player, and posthumously to Babe Didrikson Zaharias, who died in 1956.

Good to know where his priorities lie. Apparently, the PGA is NOT impressed.
PGA will strip Trump Bedminster of 2022 PGA Championship, insider says www.nj.com...


Golf's grand Pubahs are not happy about Trump's toxicity and accuse him of marring the prestige of the sport.


Two of the sport’s most iconic venues have become untouchable, at least for as long as his name remains above the door. The ‘Blue Monster’ course at Miami’s Doral Resort, which Trump bought in 2012, was home to a PGA Tour event for more than 50 years until the toxicity of his 2016 presidential campaign forced the Tour to relocate the tournament to Mexico City. Turnberry, on Scotland’s Ayrshire coast, is one of the finest venues on the Open Championship rota and has produced some of the most memorable finishes of the last 40-odd years. But the Open has stayed away since he bought it in 2014, and will likely do so for as long as he keeps it out of reach of the bailiffs.

Other major championships have felt his caress and withered. The 2017 U.S. Women’s Open, held at Trump National in Bedminster, New Jersey, was a painful spectacle as most players tried to ignore the groping elephant in the room. His Bedminster course is scheduled to host the 2022 PGA Championship, a fact that now has the PGA of America bunkered down under sustained criticism for a decision made in 2014.


Considering golf is a game traditional played while presidents, lawmakers and influencers negotiate mega deals, politics has seeped it's way into the golf community's justification for exiling The Donald and his courses from the limelight.


That a sport which prides itself on values like honesty, integrity and devotion to the rules will be characterized as a welcoming sanctuary for a brazen and amoral insurrectionist, a world in which a racist con man was never discomfited, even while taking a wrecking ball to the constitution and the rule of law.

Like the nation itself, golf has been measurably diminished by Donald Trump’s presence, and not merely in the optics of his choosing to play in times of great crisis and at taxpayer expense (though at least golf limited the damage he might otherwise have inflicted during the hours spent on the course). The damage golf sustained over the last handful of years is trivial by comparison to the country at large, but bears accounting nonetheless.

Yep, President Donald Trump is having a very bad week!

More consequences. Like I said before. What in the world were Trump supporters and Trump thinking? That they would simply walk away from Wednesday. From a coup attempt?

For the life of me, I don't understand it.

You got evidence?

Has it been presented in court?

Numerous other backward attempts others have displayed.

Dangerous times to be using coup lightly, or is that next on the chopping block with racism?

I also find all things golf to be a phenomenal sedative.

Good.

How can anyone not see Trump for who/what he is?

It still baffles me.

An electoral coup has taken place. So many many misguided naive fools!
This so called conspiracy theory is true! Oh dear. so much blindness is mind boggling!

Trump is like a reverse King Midas. Instead of gold everything he touches turns to crap. Lost the presidency, lost the house, lost the senate. Lost his Twitter account, lost the PGA tour. Lost his mind.

Are you Republicans enjoying all this losing? It’s really fun watching from the outside. I’ve never watched a political party cannibalize itself before. That it happened because they put everything into backing a senile con-man who regularly had to be ushered off the stage of his TV show to literally have his diaper changed is just the icing on the cake.

Good times.

Prime example of a bootlicker hopelessly attached to the system.

How dare we protest the overlords and elites, huh? SMDH.

Yes, yes it is.

Interesting choice of words.

Easy, by not being brainwashed like yourself and maintain the soul with good things rather than your kind of hate.

Even before the presidency.

His business dealings, casinos, etc.

You're confusing King Obama with Trump. It was Obama who had the touch of death to everything good and holy in America.

That hate you feel and see everywhere around you is NOT coming from Trump.
Wake the F up

With the coming leftist state, most every organization whether they're so inclined or not has to kow tow and virtue signal or else they'll be targeted.

Everyone knows it.

You mean, "Step up, pull down his pants, and put his golf balls on display."

That'll be the day.
