‘Pathetic’: Trump biographer knocks president after he ‘wins’ golf tournament he didn’t even play in

David Cay Johnston

It was reported Sunday that President Donald Trump’s golf club awarded him the championship for a competition he didn’t even play in. It prompted Trump biographer David Cay Johnston to call him “pathetic” during an interview with MSNBC host Chris Matthews.

“This is pathetic and it tells you a lot about what an empty vessel Donald is,” Johnston said. “Nineteen of his properties he has plaques up of awards he gave himself from a phony hospitality system run by his pal who emcees at Mar-a-Largo every year.”

He added, “Who gives an award to themselves. It is bad enough when we give children awards for showing up but giving an award to yourself, the only word to describe it is pathetic.”

They then talked about Trump boasting about himself playing golf to appeal to voters.

“He’s trying to establish that he’s been accepted and he knows he’s not by a large segment of the population,” Johnston said. “It is the same reason he’s desperate for the approval of the New York Times. And Donald, by the way, is a notorious cheat. I’ve interviewed people who played golf with him.”

Whether the Republican Party likes it or not, it stands for it now. Most of us across the ideological spectrum feel, viscerally, a kind of moral revulsion when we hear and see an angry mob braying 'Send Her Back' about a fellow American. But the reaction from Republicans today was basically a foregone conclusion."

Published

President Donald Trump's racism is shocking the entire globe, Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent wrote in a Thursday column.

"One of the most chilling things about President Trump’s hate-rally in North Carolina — which devolved into chants of “send her back,” directed at a nonwhite immigrant member of Congress — was the profusion of tweets about it from abroad," Sargent reported.

"As the president of the United States leads a domestic hate movement, the world is watching," he explained.
