President Donald Trump enjoyed a leisurely day of cable news and golf on Saturday.

As he admitted on Twitter, Trump watched MSNBC on Saturday morning.

Then, according to pool reports, Trump left the White House at 9:35 a.m. for Trump National Golf Club.

Trump did not return to the White House until approximately 4:00 p.m.

By 7:44 p.m. the commander-in-chief was tweeting about watching Fox News.

Before his election, Trump was a frequent critic of his predecessor’s golfing.

Trump, however, has golfed far more than Obama — and the bill is adding up.

“President Donald Trump wrapped up a visit to his Ireland golf resort Friday, in the process adding at least another $3.6 million to a taxpayer-funded golf tab that totals nearly $106 million in just 2 1/2 years,” the Huffington Post reported.

Trump also golfed Friday, Thursday and Wednesday.

George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, suggested additional special counsel investigations could help pay off Trump’s tab.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
