I know I'm supposed to be all out raged by what some people would define as a "Rule's for thee but not for me" Typical leftest sanctimonious sermonizing but for some reason I'm not...I'm glad the guy got a chance to get the hell out of the house (and all that this might entail:):) and have some fun...Once again I have to admit that Barack is leading the way!..Let's be like Barack! Say "HELL NO"! to the nattering nabobs of nogolfforyou..that they can just...TEE OFF and now therefore officially propose to usher in a new direction in liberty (and golf..don't forget Golf!) The "Tee Party"..Seriously though I don't blame the guy at all...can you imagine being trapped in a 15 million dollar mansion with a bunch of angry liberal gals..."Shudder!"

Barack Obama Goes Golfing After Michelle Said Stay Home

Matt Margolis On Friday, two PSAs featuring former first lady Michelle Obama urging African Americans to stay home in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus were released. Prominent African American radio hosts who have nationally syndicated shows shared the PSAs.

 

“Hi everybody, it’s Michelle Obama. Our communities are among the hardest hit by the coronavirus, and we’ve got to do everything we can to keep each other safe,” says the former first lady in the 30-second PSA. “And that means staying home because even if we are not showing any symptoms, we can still spread the virus to others. Let’s keep each other safe by just staying home. Thank you so much and God bless.”

 

Apparently, her husband didn’t get the memo. The day after the PSAs were released, Barack Obama was seen playing golf at Robert Trent Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia. Politico Playbook reported on Sunday:

 

SPOTTED:
Former President Barack Obama playing golf at Robert Trent Golf Club in Gainesville, Va., Saturday afternoon.

 

The Robert Trent Jones Golf Club is a private, member-owned golf club and is at least a 45-minute drive from the Obamas’ home in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Membership at the club is by invitation only, according to its website. When Obama joined the club in 2017, an anonymous source told CNN that annual membership fees and dues to the club are about $15,000—though every former U.S. president reportedly has an honorary membership and those fees are waived.

 

Politico did not seem at all interested that Barack Obama was not staying at home to keep others safe.

 

Meanwhile, the rest of us little people are under threat of arrest and/or fines for nonessential travel or for violating social distancing practices. In Idaho, for example, a mother was arrested for taking her child to a closed playground.

 

It’s not surprising that the Obamas are typical Do-As-I-Say-Not-As-I-Do Liberals, but, come on! A day after MO says “stay home” to be safe, BO goes out golfing? Seriously? Of course, this is the same guy who went golfing the same day that his administration declared the H1N1 a public health emergency, so I guess it makes sense. But, seriously, imagine if Donald Trump did what Obama did. He’d never hear the end of it. Barack Obama needs to be called out for his blatant disregard for, as Michelle Obama would say, not “keeping us safe.”

Ah yes, the gay fantasies from the fringier part of the right about the first couple's sex life and the source of their children. Hope it's not still keeping folks up at night.

I couldn't care less whether he plays golf. I didn't care about it when he was president either, just as I don't care when Trump plays golf.

 

For me the only issue here is the hypocrisy of expecting everybody else to "shelter at home" and never leave the house except for genuine essentials like food or medicine, then going out to the country club and playing golf. "For thee but not for me".

 

That's my only problem with it.

I agree. I don't see why golf courses are included in the "social distancing" thing anyway. But the hypocrisy is so thick you can cut it with a cheese knife.

You know cowering at home only applies to us conservatives and the ignorant leftists? The people in power have every right to relax wherever they want.

Sorry folks I'm still learning this stuff about leftists and how they "project" their own psychological idiosyncrasies at their political opponents to denigrate them and virtue signal their own saint-like righteousness in social matters..is this that? and L/B if you really have these...feelings you don't have to justify yourself to us..you should not be judged for things you can't help.

Neither do I.

 

Washington's idiot governor also banned fishing.

 

Oregon's confused governor closed fishing to non-residents because Washingtonians were crossing the border to fish here.

I realize that. They are in Arizona too. My brother has been rubbing it in with photos of himself and a few of our pals almost every day. The point is, the Obamas are narcissistic hypocrites. This is undeniable. Normally, I wouldn't care but they insist on inserting themselves into every damn thing, they deserve the criticism.

Inslee is a moron. Next to DeBlasio, he's the dumbest political figure in the country. He's even dumber than Patty Murray. He'll get re-elected too.

One problem: Barak Obama is not a resident of Virginia.

 

He is a resident of Washington D.C. which is under a stay at home order.

 

Which has the following penalty for defying the order (e.g. non-essential travel)

Any individual who willfully violates the stay-at-home order may be guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, subject to a fine not exceeding $5,000, imprisonment for not more than 90 days, or both.

 

I'm sure he has been tested. And I don't have a problem with him playing golf. But he and his wife damn sure better not lecture anyone on staying home when they aren't.

The joke around our house is how much "Inslee" sounds like "Innie". Lemme explain:

 

Remember as kids how we explained the difference between boys' sex organs and girls' sex organs? Boys had "Outies" and girls had "Innies". So we laugh about how appropriate it is that "Inslee" sounds so much like a childish description of a little girl's sex organs...

I know, I know you're right! I just can't seem to be mad about it...I don't know how large the 15million dollar house is but just imagine being trapped in there with all those angry Liberal Gals and keep in mind the place is right on the Ocean so he's probably limited in the direction he can go...but you're right.

According to your link, it saya this:

The Mayor’s Order specifies that residents may only leave their residences to:

 

engage in essential activities, including obtaining medical care that cannot be provided through telehealth and obtaining food and essential household goods;

perform or access essential governmental functions;

work at essential businesses;

engage in essential travel; or

engage in allowable recreational activities, as defined by the Mayor’s Order.

 

<snip>

 

For the purposes of this Order, the following terms shall mean:

 

1. “Allowable Recreational Activities” means outdoor activity with household members that complies with Social Distancing Requirements, as defined in section IV.8 of this Order, and includes the sanitizing of any equipment used both before and after the activity. Outdoor activities should not be conducted with persons other than those from one’s own household.

 

Examples: Walking, hiking, running, dog-walking, biking, rollerblading, scootering, skateboarding, playing tennis, golfing, gardening, and other activities where all participants comply with Social Distancing Requirements and there is no person-to-person contact.

 

He travels with the secret service. I don't know if they are considered members of the household.

I'm not arguing with you but who in the Hell do these mayors or governors or whatever think they are to issue these orders? I feel like the neighborhood flake with a sandwich board but Jesus, this is setting a terrible precedent. This is going to ruin us.

Yeah, I see what you mean. No matter how miserable I might be, stuck here in this tiny cramped apartment, at least I don't have to put up with the presence of Michelle Obama!

 

THAT would be unbearable torture.
