Nation Honors McCain's Passing While Trump Played Golf

Good Day World!

When the nation mourned Sen.John McCain's death yesterday at the Washington National Cathedral, Trump was waddling around on his golf course in Loudon County, Virginia, looking for his ball in a bunker.

Between swings, he sulked and tweeted nasty accusations against his own Justice Department. For good measure, he even threatened Canada, assuring no cooperation on his re-do of NAFTA in the near future.

When the nation grieved, our Liar-In-Chief was busy cheating at golf with mulligans at every hole. No matter that he was playing alone. In his warped mind he's winning, regardless of the cost.

While the leading national figures in politics today honored McCain for his honesty, Trump rambled across the links with his little MAGA hat on in a world of his own. A world of feverish lies, and corruption.

While old political foes eulogized McCain, Trump's friends were flipping on him in court cases like fish-out-of-water. 

While past presidents spoke of McCain's patriotism, Trump is under fire for collusion with America's longtime enemy Russia, during the 2016 election.

When congressman from both sides of the aisle spoke about McCain they all agreed he put America before party. Trump has put himself above American values, and norms. His only allegiance is the one he has to himself.

As McCain's family spoke about what a good man he was, Trump's daughter and son-in-law were at his funeral instead of being at Trump's side - or riding along in a golf cart watching him play golf!

Pundits often note that Trump is on an island when it comes to most things he wants to do. 

Instead, I would venture to say he's on a golf course surrounded by his base who are chanting, "Lock her up!" and "Build that wall!"

Time for me to walk on down the road...
