Over the weekend, Donald Trump participated in a golf tournament. Did he win? Well, that depends on who you ask. If you ask Trump, he did, writing on Truth Social that it was a “great honor to have won the Senior Club Championship at Trump International Golf Club, one of the best courses in the Country, in Palm Beach County, Florida. Competed against many fine golfers, and was hitting the ball long and straight.” If you ask the other people who played in the tournament, he didn’t really, and only won by cheating.
Per The Independent:
Is cheating at golf, at the age of 76, a completely ridiculous thing to do? Sure. Is it something that Donald Trump is known for? Yes. Is the even more absurd part of this story the fact that Trump went onto claim that his alleged victory was evidence he’s fit to be president of the United States? Indeed!
After declaring that he’d “won” the tournament, the ex-president told his followers: “The reason that I announce this on fabulous TRUTH is that, in a very real way, it serves as a physical exam, only MUCH tougher. You need strength and stamina to WIN, & I have strength & stamina – most others don’t. You also need strength & stamina to GOVERN!”
While the former guy did not go onto suggest the next presidential election be decided by golf tournament, there’s absolutely a nonzero chance he was thinking it.
