Trump Spends His Day at a Golf Club Attacking Mitt Romney

Trump Administration

It must be something to be the president of the United
States and have taxpayers bankrolling you while you hang out at your own golf
club and tweet about someone you hate.

But that’s Donald Trump!

Facing increasing
of corruption that would’ve landed any other president in jail by
now, Trump is still hanging onto the presidency, as belligerently as ever. On
Saturday, Trump spent much of his day at the Trump National Golf Club in
Sterling, VA, rage-tweeting about the Republican senator from Utah, Mitt Romney,
who has been a frequent
target of Trump’s ire

It’s not because Romney has said anything that dramatic
about Trump. The senator’s comments to date actually have been pretty tame,
given the seriousness of Trump’s alleged crimes. But Trump can’t stand “disloyal”
people, and Romney has the nerve to speak out against the president, in
whatever form, while an impeachment inquiry is underway. That clearly triggers
the president, especially since not many other Republicans have found their own

In the latest exchange, Romney made a couple short statements on
Twitter on Friday reacting to Trump’s recent comments about using
China to target former Vice President Joe Biden
for investigation.

“When the only American citizen President Trump singles out
for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the
Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is
anything other than politically motivated,” Romney tweeted.

“Strains credulity” is a polite way of saying it’s bullshit,
which was highlighted on Friday by CNBC White House correspondent Eamon Javers,
who asked Trump to name other people the White House had asked foreign
countries to investigate who aren’t his political opponents.

“We would have to look,” Trump
responded, giving away the game.

“By all appearances, the President’s brazen and
unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong
and appalling,” Romney correctly concluded.

Trump, however, wasn’t afraid to fire back with stronger language. On Saturday, he called Romney a “pompous ‘ass.’” I’m not
sure why he wrote “ass” in quotation marks, but maybe someone can explain that
to me.

Prior to that tweet, Trump had repeated that his phone
call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was “very appropriate.”

“Somebody please
wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian
President was a congenial and very appropriate one, and my statement on China
pertained to corruption, not politics. If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he
could have won. Sadly, he choked!” Trump tweeted.

Trump told additional lies about the July
25 phone call
at the center of the impeachment inquiry. A whistleblower’s
account of Trump’s phone call is “way off” and “not even close,” Trump claimed.

The president also strangely stated that House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff “never thought I
would release the transcript of the call.”

“Got them by surprise, they got caught,” Trump tweeted.

Boy, you really showed them, Donnie!! Now do Putin.

“This is a fraud against the American people!” Trump
continued, in what might be the perfect time for someone at the White House to
remind him that the description of the phone call—that he released—actually incriminates him.

Trump spent the rest of his Saturday rage-tweeting more
about Romney and sharing bad video clips from Fox News. He returned to the
White House later in the day, looking, well, a bit disheveled.
