‘Dumbest thing ever witnessed on the news’: Twitter scalds CNN for fawning over two guys who golfed with Trump

Published

on

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.

While the vacancy looked like an opportunity for the 16 Republican men (and one woman) who ran in 2016, Democrats essentially cleared the field for Hillary Clinton, the first woman to win the party’s presidential nomination. Her only two challengers were white men; one who eventually became a star at the center of his own political movement and the other who was shortly reduced to strumming his guitar shirtless for attention.
