President Trump played a round of golf this past weekend with the #3 ranked player in the world, and the liberal crowd that didn’t mind Barack Obama’s 333 rounds as president has suddenly become outraged.
Turns out Pres Trump played more than a few holes of golf yesterday. WH now confirms he played a round with #3 world pro Rory McIlroy.

Rory McIlroy, who has won four major championships, was so determined to accept the honor of playing with America’s president, that he did so with a fractured rib.
When all was said and done, the two-time PGA Championship winner came away impressed, praising Trump for his golf skills.
Via Yahoo! Sports:
Irish golf superstar Rory McIlroy played 18 holes with US President Donald Trump on Sunday, despite his fractured rib, it was widely reported on Monday.
No Laying Up golf website said McIlroy played Sunday morning at Trump International Golf Club after receiving the invitation Saturday night to play alongside Trump, who took office last month.
“He probably shot around 80,” McIlroy told the website. “He’s a decent player for a guy in his 70s.”
A photo posted on Twitter by Clear Sports showed Trump and McIlroy, their faces shaded by caps, with two other men, although the website said the others were not part of the foursome.
Here is the fearsome foursome below …

Naturally, liberals went apoplectic over the notion of a PGA Tour pro who has played Trump’s courses numerous times would dare associate himself with our President.
Right that's it, Britain you can have him. We don't want him anymore! https://t.co/gAfcVv3wWX

Even Piers Morgan noticed the ridiculous levels of outrage being heaped upon the President.

Perhaps McIlroy was simply returning a favor for Trump, who in 2015 had the tour pro’s 3-iron fished out of a lake after he threw it following an errant shot.

The funny thing is, liberals are attacking McIlroy despite the fact that he has never supported Trump – A) Because he’s not an American voter and, B) He said he couldn’t support either Trump or Hillary in the election.
“I can’t vote and if I could I’m not sure I would for any of the candidates,” McIlroy said.
Hey libs – sometimes a round of golf is just that, a round of golf. You didn’t care about Obama’s 300+ rounds, so don’t feign outrage when Trump hits the links and somebody famous joins him.
