Donald Trump spent a beautiful spring Saturday on his Florida golf course while his wife and every other living president traveled to Houston to pay their respects to former first lady Barbara Bush, who died Tuesday at age 92.

Trump had spent the first part of the week golfing with Japan’s prime minister—which is one way of working around his pledge to “never see” his golf courses again if he were president because he would be too busy doing the people’s business.

Trump has played at least 109 rounds in 15 months. That’s 7.27 rounds, or 130 holes, per month. Trump plays nearly 30 hours of golf a month.

Lockhart responded to the comment by mocking the Fox News host, saying that he was only making the comment to help get his contract renewed.

Published

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is one of the handful of members of Congress who have served as managers for President Donald Trump's impeachment trial. He has not only navigated the past week of the trial, but he conducted the first major hearing.

“I think you have to for the sake of the office,” Trump told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham when she asked if he would block Bolton.
