  • Trump skips community service on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, spends time on his golf

    What a surprise! I am that bolstered his claim that he in fact not racist. Never mind the claim that he would spent less time golfing than his predecessors.

    • President Donald Trump did not participate in any community service or volunteer work on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
    • He urged the public on Friday, before leaving for his Florida golf club, to observe the day "with acts of civic work and community service in honor of Dr. King's extraordinary life."
    • Trump's decision to refrain from doing community service marks a departure from tradition observed by his recent predecessors.

    Trump breaks with past presidents on MLK Day activities

    President Donald Trump's schedule today marks a break in presidential tradition.

    [...]

    While Trump urged Americans last Friday to observe the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday with acts of civic work and community service to honor the life of the civil rights legend, it doesn’t appear he'll be doing the same, with no public events listed on his schedule.

    [...]

    President Barack Obama and his family made it an annual tradition to participate in some type of service event, from working at a soup kitchen to painting a mural at a family shelter.

    Trump broke Obama's annual tradition... Oh the humanity! Snowflakes are melting faster than the polar ices caps.

          Obama put out a whole tweet! Great shades of copying Trump!

            After seeing the Dow Jones go over 26,000 this morning, Trump deserves a golf day.

            It's now dropped just below 26,000 but I see it closing over the 26K mark.

              Black employment is the highest in nearly twenty years. Real, private-sector jobs.

              That more important than a couple hours' community service.

                But golf is evil if Obama does it

                But good when Trump does it

                    Saying a prayer to MLK would neither prove nor disprove Trump is racist.

                    That said, this is something that anything Trump did would be attacked.
                    I recognize that I would have done the same with BO.
                    For instance, I was annoyed when BO ignored memorial day (or allegedly did so), but was also critical of him when he did things to honor the military because I felt it was insincere and manipulative. My intense dislike for BO made me unreasonably disapprove of everything he did. I don't see the vast majority of anti-trumpers as being more reasonable than I am or even recognizing the hypocrisy.

                    I am willing to bet that had Trump fasted in front of MLK's shrine the same people who are offended by his inaction would be offended by his allegedly insincere efforts to honor King.

                      I heard the first predictions that this is a full bubble in the works. OTOH not sure what those predictions are based on other than the fast growth. As long as people don't start investing in cryptocurrencies en masse we'll probably see another year of growth.

                          That's because Obama visualizes hitting white people when he swings...

                            That's why he always uses a white golf ball...
