CNN irked viewers on Tuesday by airing a lengthy interview with a father and son who recently golfed with President Trump over his holiday vacation.


"What is it like to hit the links with the President?" CNN host John Berman wondered during his introduction of PGA golfers Fred and Taylor Funk. "What does one talk about when golfing with President Trump."

Fred Funk explained that the president spent most of the game talking about golf.

And Taylor Funk praised Trump's golf game, noting that "it was good, he shot a legit 36 on the front nine." But he said that Trump struggled with the final nine holes.

"You are at a risk for an audit for saying that," Berman joked, prompting laughter from co-host Alisyn Camerota.

"He's definitely a lot better than I thought he was going to be," Taylor Funk added. "He's a good player, he's fun to play with."

While Berman and Camerota seemed to enjoy the interview, viewers sounding off on Twitter panned the interview as a waste of time or worse.
