Samuel Jackson is the latest to “blow up” Donald Trump’s golfing spot. In a recent interview for United Airlines’ Rhapsody magazine he, the famous actor makes it clear that Donald’s self-promoted golf prowess is, like his campaign and virtually everything else about him, built on a house of lies.
Asked who the better golfer was, Jackson said with a smile, “Oh, I am, for sure. I don’t cheat.”
This comes only a few months after the Washington Post did a piece about how many people say Donald Trump cheats at golf.
“The worst celebrity golf cheat?” the rock star Alice Cooper said in a 2012 interview with Q magazine. “I wish I could tell you that. It would be a shocker. I played with Donald Trump one time. That’s all I’m going to say.” (“I’ve never played with Alice Cooper,” Trump said. “That’s a terrible thing to say about people, especially me.”)
Rick Reilly a sports writer who played with various celebrities for a book back in 2004, played with the great Trump.
Reilly told The Washington Post about an afternoon when Trump wrote down scores he didn’t actually achieve on his scorecard, conceded putts to himself by raking the ball into the hole with his putter rather than striking it properly (“He rakes like my gardener!”), and even called a gimme — something a player might claim for a two-foot putt — on what should have been a chip shot.
“He took the world’s first gimme chip-in,” Reilly said. At one point, Trump, after taking a number of second shots, told Reilly to “make sure you write that I play my first ball. You don’t get a second ball in life.” In life, it may or may not be true that a person gets a second chance; and yet, as Reilly wrote, on holes 1, 13 and 17, Trump did indeed get a second ball.
Trump is like the emperor with no clothes. He’s delusional and no one will say otherwise because he foots all of the bills (or someone does). As for Trump, when he tells you things like how many friends he has and the luminaries that patronize the Donald and the Donald’s branded business—remember this:
“But it’s funny — last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club,” he added. “And I haven’t been there in four or five years, so I had my assistant call. They said it was for membership dues. And I said, ‘I’m not a member,’ and they said, ‘Yeah, you are — you have a member number.’ Apparently he’d made me a member of one of his golf clubs, and I didn’t even know it!”
He charged you without you knowing it, the magazine asked.
“Yeah!” Jackson said, laughing. “I’m not payin’ that!
Trump doesn’t have friends. But don’t feel bad for Donald Trump, he doesn’t care—I doubt he is able to have friends.
