Fifteen-time LGPA winner Suzann Pettersen has played golf with Donald Trump. Pettersen has a few things to say about his penchant for being full of shit. In an interview with Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang Pettersen shared all kinds of amazing thoughts on the times she has played golf with the bigliest person ever in the history of history.
“He cheats like hell ... so I don’t quite know how he is in business. They say that if you cheat at golf, you cheat at business. I’m pretty sure he pays his caddy well, since no matter how far into the woods he hits the ball, it’s in the middle of the fairway when we get there,” says Pettersen, laughing heartily in the half-full restaurant.
Ha. You cheat at golf, you cheat at business. It’s all hilarious when you’re wealthy. Petersen considers Trump a friend, so this isn’t a damnation of the kinds of petty lies a narcissist like Donald Trump tells himself to cover up his epic failures in every aspect of his life. But it goes along with everything we have known and continue to know about the white supremacist in chief: the only transparent thing about Donald Trump is that when his mouth is moving, lies are coming out of his face. Another tidbit about Trump’s putting. He never takes the final putt, he takes advantage of the grace given to world-class golfers that they would make their three-foot putt. So, he makes sure that he never actually has to follow-through, sink the putt, put it in the hole. Nothing symbolic or allegoric about that.
“Yes, yes, that happens all the time. He always says he is the world’s best putter. But in all the times I’ve played him, he’s never come close to breaking 80,” Pettersen says of the president, who golfs with a 3 handicap.
“But what’s strange is that every time I talk to him he says he just golfed a 69, or that he set a new course record or won a club championship some place,” she says. “I just laugh. I’m someone who likes being teased and I like teasing others, and Trump takes it well, and that must be why he likes me.”
Yes. it is strange. Maybe the word you are looking for isn’t “strange,” but “pathetic,” or maybe “sad,” or maybe “predictable,” or maybe “classless,” or possibly “childish,” or “lacking character,” but we can go with strange. Trump loves his golf—so much so that he’s played three times more golf than any sitting president at this point in his term; which is part of why it is so profoundly pathetic that he continues to lie to himself and others about his skill level. Pettersen is a Trump supporter, though she tries to explain that she doesn’t agree with him, she isn’t bothered by shitty things he says, and that he’s done a lot for women’s golf.
I’m not so touchy about things like that ... I’m sure he has said things that can be hurtful to a lot of people, but I take everything he says with a pinch of salt. I know where it’s coming from.
I’m guessing Pettersen hasn’t been grabbed in her privates, or kissed on the mouth by the US president. She’s also not a citizen of the United States of America and therefore isn’t directly affected by the hateful and stupid things he says. There’s a reason why Donald Trump loves the wealthiest people in Norway.
