Internet roasts Trump for telling McConnell to ‘get back to work’ while on a 17-day golf vacation
President Donald Trump on Thursday once again publicly lashed out at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) over his failure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
“Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing,” the president wrote. “You can do it!”
Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing. You can do it!

Trump right now is in the middle a 17-day vacation at one of his golf courses in Bedminster, New Jersey, and he has spent much of that time not only golfing, but angrily tweeting about this that he’s seen on cable news.
This irony was not lost on other Twitter users, who torched Trump for telling someone else to get back to work even as he took a long break for golfing.

Meanwhile, you are golfing and having lunch today. Remember when you said you would have no time for golf?

You spent yesterday golfing with the owner of a staffing agency and his buds. You’re the last person to tell anybody to get back to work. pic.twitter.com/IJHxcxPCA6

I suggest “getting back to work” might not be your strongest line of attack.
