The press is so out of control with opinion and lies. This past weekend has been full of lies and editorializing from The Hill and The Washington Post: 

The Hill reported that Trump played golf AGAIN this past weekend when he did not…Notice how they say “visit”…

The social media director for Trump called them out on it:

Now we have the Washington Post accepting a videotape from crazy environmentalists who carved six feet tall letters into the 5th green on Trump’s golf course. They were so proud of their vandalism that they gave details to the Post of how long it took to vandalize the property.

When I went to the article to read it, there was a disclaimer at the top. Well, if you go to the comments section at the end of the article, the comments are mostly ripping on the environmentalists AND the articles reference to the vandalism as a “DARING ACT OF DEFIANCE”. So the editor replaced the phrase with a more accurate term of VANDALISM…

WHAT THESE PEOPLE DID IS DISGUSTING AND SO WRONG – GLORIFYING DESTRUCTION OF PRIVATE PROPERTY IS NEVER OK…SHAME ON YOU WAPO!

Editor’s note: The beginning of this story was changed to more accurately reflect the nature of the actions taken by a protest group against the Trump golf course in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.


A group of environmental activists pulled off an elaborate act of vandalism at one of President Trump’s premier golf courses early Sunday morning.

The group — which labels itself an “anonymous environmental activist collective” — snuck into Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., and carved a message into the green with six-foot-tall letters that said: “NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS.”

The 18-hole, 7,300-yard course is set among cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean just south of Los Angeles. Last year, Golf Digest ranked it the 43rd best course in California.

In a statement sent to The Washington Post, the group said the vandalism was carried out in response to the Trump administration’s “blatant disregard” for the environment:

“Tearing up the golf course felt justified in many ways,” the member said. “Repurposing what was once a beautiful stretch of land into a playground for the privileged is an environmental crime in its own right.”

“In response to the president’s recent decision to gut our existing protection policies, direct action was conceived and executed on the green of his California golf course in the form of a simple message: NO MORE TIGERS. NO MORE WOODS,” the statement said.
