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.

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.”

The United States announced Friday that it was sending military reinforcements to the Gulf region following attacks on Saudi oil facilities that it attributes to Iran, just hours after President Donald Trump ordered new sanctions on Tehran.

Trump said the sanctions were the toughest-ever against another country, but indicated he did not plan a military strike, calling restraint a sign of strength.

The Treasury Department renewed action against Iran's central bank after US officials said Tehran carried out weekend attacks on rival Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure, which triggered a spike in global crude prices.
