The White House got stuck in the severe Monday after President Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer shielded his boss’s frequent golf outings by claiming the commander-in-chief uses the diversion differently than former President Barack Obama did.
Trump, who just eight weeks into bureau has already done 10 trips to green, was a steady and infamous censor of his predecessor’s gusto for personification the diversion — but the critique shouldn’t request to the stream White House passenger given he uses the diversion to “help U.S. interests.”
“You saw him implement this as an event with (Japanese) Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to help encourage deeper relations in Asia,” Spicer pronounced during his press lecture Monday when asked about the apparent hypocrisy.
“How you use the diversion of golf is something that he’s talked about,” he added.
“So many people (are) jumping to the end that he was going down and personification golf. Just given you go somewhere doesn’t indispensably meant you did it,” Spicer clumsily contended.
“So on a couple occasions, he’s actually conducted meetings there,” he added, before observant that Trump simply deserved some remoteness on the course.
“The President is entitled to a bit of remoteness at some point,” he said.
Trump, however, spent much of his pre-campaign municipal life criticizing Obama for his own golf outings.
“Can you trust that, with all of the problems and problems confronting the U.S., President Obama spent the day personification golf,” he tweeted Oct. 13, 2014. “Worse than Carter.”
“We compensate for Obama’s transport so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies,” he tweeted the next day. “Then we compensate for his golf.”
