Donald Trump’s truth about numbers has always been, at best, flexible. Much like his claim to weigh 215 pounds, his claim to winning club golf championships seems equally dubious.
But that hasn’t stopped the former chairman from adding another title to his record – claiming on Truth Social that he won the club’s senior championship on his stint in Bedminster, New Jersey.
“I am happy to report, for those who care, that I have just won the Senior Club Championship (must be over 50!) at Bedminster (Trump National Golf Club), shooting a round of 67,” Trump said.
In an attempt to dissuade any skeptics, Trump assured his supporters that there was no “handkerchief/lanky”.
“A lot of people are watching, and I’m surrounded by Secret Service agents. You can’t do much even if you wanted to, and I can’t. For some reason, I’m just a good golfer/athlete – I’ve won many club championships, and that’s always a great honour! »
Donald Trump has claimed to have won his club’s senior championship in Bedminster.
The former president called it a “great honour” and claimed to have shot a round of 67
He also released the private mobile number of his club’s chief golf professional should anyone dispute that claim.
Just two months ago, Trump was filmed kicking his absolutely terrible leg during one of his own classes – leading many to question the seriousness of the ex’s claims -president.
It also doesn’t help that earlier this month a tour of professional golfers took to the same course Trump played. Out of a full field of LIV golfers, only six rounds were allowed at 67 or less. Two of those laps belonged to winner Cam Smith.
Trump also took part in the pro-am at the LIV Golf Bedminster event – but only played a few holes.
To back up his claim, Trump released the course pro’s private phone number to Trump National — essentially doxxing his own employee, leading to people flooding his cellphone with calls.
Social media were quick to question the claim that he fired – and many tore at the former president.
Actor Billy Baldwin posted on Twitter: “Trump hasn’t won anything without cheating for decades.” Not golf, his marriages, his business, his taxes, his charities… or his elections. He reached a 67, just as he weighs 215.’
“Donald Trump swings a golf club like he learned to play from (50s sitcom character) Ralph Cramden (sic). “The dude claims he shot a 67. I assure you Trump has never in his life come close to average,” wrote one Twitter user.
Another wrote: “Trump has one of the most hideous golf swings I have ever seen. It’s really over the top, from the outside in, making for a massive slice. The only way for him to shoot a 67 is by scoring on his front nine.
At the LIV tournament on the same course just a few weeks ago, only four rounds of 67 or better were carded – two of those rounds belonging to tournament winner Cameron Smith.
Social media has taken aim at the former president, debating his allegations of shooting a 67
Another joked: “…”Just won the Senior Club Championship at Bedminster (Trump National Golf Club), shooting a round 67.” Trump is humbled not to mention the 4:23 miles that he ran next, followed by his ripped 6. “3” body and 215 pounds performing 3 sets of 8×500 squats.’
Trump and 18 of his associates were recently charged with racketeering in the state of Georgia for accessing voting machines with election officials.
The president continued to tout his false claims that the 2020 election was rigged and that he was the real winner.
His repeated insistence immediately after the election led a group of his supporters to storm the United States Capitol building on January 6, 2021 in an attempt to stop the certification of votes in the presidential election.
