(FreedomJournal.org)- President Donald Trump took on the fake news media on Monday, criticizing politically motivated reporters who attacked him for taking some time to exercise while playing golf. President Trump took some time to play golf on Memorial Day, the same day he paid his respects and took questions from the press.
“The Fake & Totally Corrupt News makes it sound like a mortal sin – I knew this would happen!” Trump said on Twitter, referencing the media’s outrage that the president chose to get some exercise in the sunshine.
Some stories about the fact that in order to get outside and perhaps, even a little exercise, I played golf over the weekend. The Fake & Totally Corrupt News makes it sound like a mortal sin – I knew this would happen! What they don’t say is that it was my first golf in almost…

It’s funny how Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticizes the president for being “morbidly obese” but when he plays golf, the main form of exercise the president enjoys, they tell him that’s wrong too!
Trump blasted the media for being “sick with hatred and dishonesty” and labeled them “truly deranged” for their obsession with his rare trips to play golf.
“What they don’t say is that it was my first golf in almost 3 months and, if I waited 3 years, they would do their usual ‘hit’ pieces anyway,” he said.
Before becoming president, Donald Trump had a passion for golf and would play regularly. Playing one game in three months, while also navigating a pandemic, hardly sounds excessive. The last time the president went golfing was on March 9 in Palm Beach, and since then he has been working every day to minimize the impact of the Chinese coronavirus on the American people and economy.
He also took to Twitter to call out the press for ignoring Joe Biden’s work ethic.
“They don’t mention Sleepy Joe’s poor work ethic, or all of the time Obama spent on the golf course, often flying to Hawaii in a big, fully loaded 747, to play,” the president said. “What did that do to the so-called Carbon Footprint?”
