Washington Compost: Help us identify Trumpís unknown golf partners
Washington Compost ^ | July 28, 2018 | Philip Bump

In the flood of stories about how people close to President Trump sought to leverage their relationships for personal gain earlier this year, one story didn’t attract as much attention as it might otherwise have.

That was the story about how Republican Party fundraiser Elliott Broidy, then already in the news for a more titillating reason, had allegedly tried to deliver a prized encounter for one of his clients. Broidy’s private defense company was seeking a contract with the government of Malaysia and its prime minister, Najib Razak. Apparently, to build a better relationship with Najib, Broidy attempted to set up a round of golf between Najib and Trump, appealing directly to the president in June of last year. Trump, Broidy said in an email to White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly earlier this year, was happy to do it.

When Najib came to the United States in September, no round of golf was played, perhaps because the prime minister was under investigation by the Justice Department for corruption.

What’s remarkable, though, is that if Najib had joined Trump at Bedminster that weekend, we might not have known whether the two played golf. On 110 days of his presidency, Trump has traveled to a golf course and spent several hours there. On a handful of occasions, he or the White House or his golf partners have revealed/admitted that he was playing golf. On most occasions, they haven’t — and the question of who joined him for his hours-long foray around the course is a mystery.

On the chart below, all of Trump’s known or assumed rounds of golf are indicated. Those in red are ones for which we know or, in dark gray, believe we know who joined him as he did so.

Why don’t they put the pictures on milk cartons and get help that way?

And the Compost is gonna do the same thing for the 8 years of Obummer’s golf outings, too, of course.

Of course.... NOT

You make me think of what they would have done for Hitlery’s golf outings (if they were to be able to just carry her out to the first tee for photo ops and that would be about it).

...

Maybe that’s because he owns the golf course and he’s living there when he’s not in the White House. It probably has better security than the Trump tower and doesn’t involve the Manhattan traffic problems.

I’ve seen a good amount of speculation that Barko’s outings had little to do with golf...more on the lines of a little choomin’ and some Reggie Love personal training.

Of course this same newspaper could give a fig what Mr. Obama did on the golf course.

Obama had to recruit the WH staff to play golf with him because he has no real friends.

I'm pretty sure the Compost author would greatly enjoy that!
