Two more things…Dude, give it a rest…
For rabid sports fans, the top story this year, just behind Alex Ovechkin hoisting the Stanley Cup, is the return of Tiger Woods. After a rough finish at the Northern Trust tournament, a reporter attempted to catch golf great Tiger Woods in controversy following his final round Sunday.
Woods was fielding questions from media, who typically ask about a golfer’s performance that weekend, when one reporter asked Woods to describe his relationship with the president both professionally and personally.
“Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years. We’ve played golf together and, you know, we’ve had dinner together. And so yeah, I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency,” Woods responded.
Not satisfied, the reporter asked Woods what he would say to people who find his relationship with Trump “interesting,” considering Trump’s policies make “people of color and immigrants” feel “threatened.”
Woods responded: “Well, he’s the president of the United States and you have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike the personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office.”
However, Woods’ answer still did not quench the reporter’s thirst for controversy. He followed up with a question about “race relations,” asking Woods if he has anything “more broadly” to say, referring to Trump’s beefs with black sports stars like LeBron James and Stephen Curry.
Finally, Woods, told the reporter, “No. I just finished 72 holes and I’m really hungry.”
“Et tu In-N-Out?”
In-N-Out, the classic burger chain started in Baldwin Park, California in 1948, found itself on the hot seat after it was discovered it donated $25k to the California Republican Party. Even while the company “made equal contributions to both Democratic and Republican” political action committees in California in 2018, liberals were incensed. “Et tu In-N-Out?” California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman said on Twitter. “Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party. It’s time to #BoycottInNOut – let Trump and his cronies support these creeps… perhaps animal style!”
How far does party loyalty or Trump hate go?
Left-leaning In-N-Out aficionados are feeling conflicted.
“In the age of @realDonaldTrump, we need joy in our lives,” Twitter user @DetAnsinn said. “Sometimes, that joy comes in red/white wrapper and a toasted bun.”
