Golfing legend Tiger Woods has chosen the high road, refusing to be baited by the media. President Trump and Woods have known each other for a number of years, with both golfing together in the past. The subject of their relationship was brought to the forefront during a news conference Sunday following Woods’ final-round 70 at The Northern Trust.
Woods was initially asked whether his relationship with President Trump would be considered “professional or personal.”
Woods replied – “Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years. We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency.”
The reporter tried again, asking Woods’ opinions of the President’s decisions to tighten U.S. immigration policies. The reporter asked – “At times, especially 2018, I think a lot of people, especially colored immigrants are threatened by him and his policy – what do you say to people who might find it interesting that you have a friendly relationship with him?”
Woods’ answer gave the reporter nothing. No ammunition. No racial innuendo to exploit. No controversy. Nothing. He simply stated – “He’s the President of the United States. You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office.”
The reporter tried yet a third time, asking Woods how he would explain such a friendly relationship with President Trump in light of his current ongoing feuds with many NBA and NFL players.
President Trump has been very vocal in his objections to the ongoing protests being staged by NFL players during the national anthem which they claim is in protest of racial inequality and social injustice. He famously revoked White House invitations to NBA clubs after players publically stated they planned to refuse to attend what under prior administrations had been traditional visits.
Woods refused to be baited and when asked for further clarity with the reporter asking if he had any more to say regarding the state of race relations and discourse, Woods shut the reporter down, stating – “No. I just finished 72 holes and really hungry.”
According to Sports Inquirer, “Woods was then escorted to a waiting car and departed for his private jet and a flight home to Florida, where he plans a few days off and some putting work before Friday’s next US PGA playoff event near Boston.”
What was abundantly clear was that Woods was uninterested in race baiting or in bashing the president. It was also very clear he was not interested in again becoming a fodder for the same media looking to hold him up as the latest example the token person of color to hate the president.
Woods knows what it is like to have every aspect of your life subject to debate, discussion, and dissection across the country. A gifted golfer with what was once considered one of the greatest careers in the history of sports, that career spiraled out of control in part due to a combination of injuries, infidelities, a car wreck, and poor decisions. As a result, many of his endorsement partners dropped Woods in an effort to steer clear of the controversy including companies like ATT, Gatorade, Gillette, Golf Digest, and Tag Heuer. But Tiger’s biggest partner, Nike, stuck with him.
Over the next few months, Woods released several statements. In those statements, he admitted he had been unfaithful to his wife, Elin Nordegren. In February 2010, he gave a televised statement in which he said he had been in a therapy program, famously saying “I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to.” He then asked for privacy for his family.
Undergoing several more surgeries due to various injuries sustained throughout his professional sports career, with a fourth back surgery on his back in just four years, Woods was also charged with DUI in 2017. And yet despite the hardship and controversy, in April 2018 Fortune Magazine references Woods’ as “the favorite to win golf’s most prestigious tournament: The Masters.”
Fortune adds – “Observers are calling the plausibility a miracle, and it could be one not just for Woods’ career, but golf in general, as the sport struggles to reel in a younger generation disinterested in the game’s slow pace, pricey equipment and maddening difficulty.
Golf has dealt with declining television ratings in recent years, but a healthy, well-performing Woods has already led to a substantial spike in viewers. Last month, Woods’ second-place finish in the Valspar Championship led to the PGA Tour’s highest ratings in five years, according to the Associated Press.
Woods is also reviving the golf industry itself. Bridgestone told Reuters that Woods’ presence on the green this year has increased the average basket value of its products by more than 120 percent compared to the same period last year when he wasn’t competing.
“His endorsement [that we make the best ball] is more valuable than all of the science and data that we throw out to the consumers,” Bridgestone CEO Angel Ilagan told the outlet. “It is just ridiculous that we can show them hundreds and thousands of testings with robots and projectile guns that we’re the best ball, the most accurate ball. And the consumer doesn’t believe us until Tiger says, Yeah that’s true.”
But as a result of suffering those years of hardship, Woods learned how important loyalty is and what true friends are and President Trump is publically voicing his appreciation. On the Monday directly following the Sunday news conference, President Trump posted to Twitter his appreciation of Woods and his refusal to be either partisan or provocative.
The Fake News Media worked hard to get Tiger Woods to say something that he didn’t want to say. Tiger wouldn’t play the game – he is very smart. More importantly, he is playing great golf again!

President Trump tweeted – “The Fake News Media worked hard to get Tiger Woods to say something that he didn’t want to say. Tiger wouldn’t play the game – he is very smart. More importantly, he is playing great golf again!”
In 2016 Trump posted a picture of himself, his grandson Kai, & Tiger on a course, also.
#Repost @donaldjtrumpjr ・・・ Who wants to complete this threesome? Or more importantly how many strokes is Kai going to give @tigerwoods and grandpa @realdonaldtrump ??? It was really funny watching them warmup on the range @trumpgolfpalmbeach when Tiger joked he's an 8 handicap and he's ready to play. 😂 #golf #kidsgolf #trump #christmas #vacation
Many have tried since Woods refused to speak ill of the president to make much of the longtime friendship Woods has enjoyed with President Trump remarking that the two have played golf together many times over the years. However, Woods has also played golf with former presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
As Woods himself noted when asked to dish the details his current relationship with President Trump – “We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency.”
Immigrant Actress Says She’ll Leave The U.S. And Not Just Because She Hates Trump
Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron has been a citizen of our great nation for more than a decade, after leaving South Africa for a better life in America. Now, she’s wanting out and nobody is stopping her, but she wants everyone to know why she’s leaving and others should high tail it out of here too. Theron has identified what she feels is an imminent threat to humanity in this country and is more than just President Donald Trump, who she’s definitely not a fan of.
The successful actress has enjoyed all the perks of being an American citizen including an incredible career. More important than her acting chops are her two black children she’s adopted. She doesn’t feel that they are safe here in the U.S. and is at least talking about leaving, but like all other anti-Trump celebs, she probably won’t make good on her announcement and actually leave. She just likes the attention of complaining about this country, this time citing a new reason.
American News Central reports:
Charlize Theron was born in South Africa during the time of apartheid. She knows what racism is like.
Theron gained American citizenship just over a decade ago, however, she’s not that proud of her country or her president.
According to Charlize, she’s considering leaving the United States because it’s just too dang racist. Her two adopted black kids shouldn’t have to live in such an evil country!
She said this during an interview with far-left nutball Chelsea Handler.
When Charlize Theron isn’t making really dumb statement about gun control she apparently passes the time by making really dumb statements about race. The whitest person you’ve ever seen says there are parts of America that are so racist that she won’t go there and worries that this racism may drive her from the country entirely. It should be noted that she is from South Africa where white people are killed for the color of their skin and white farmers are driven from their land by angry blacks.
Theron sat down with her drunken leftist friend and equal foe of Trump’s as she is, to commiserate over how awful they feel that America has become. This “safe space” interview is rich with leftist insanity.
Chelsea Handler: You’re raising two children of color. Obviously, coming from South Africa, you know a lot about racial inequality, but what are your thoughts on Black Lives Matter and our current climate?
Charlize Theron: Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyperaware of equality and human rights. Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about. I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic. There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I’m like, If this continues, I might have to [leave America]. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.
Theron’s children are among the most privileged kids in America guarded by people protecting them and likely a security wall or fence around their home. Her children are not in any danger with Trump as the president who has done nothing to make the country more racist with him in office. The only people perpetuating racism in America are liberals like her who are lying to their children and telling them that America is a racist place. Instilling fear in little ones like this is what’s really unsafe.
If Theron wants to fix a racism issue, she should look at her home country and start there. That’s where it really is dangerous, but she will just stay right here in America where it’s safe and complain about Trump for attention.
Real American Tom Selleck Has Had Enough Of Rosie Trashing Trump, Hits Her Where It Hurts
Rosie O’Donnell tends to stick her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. It’s as if her foot was metal, and her mouth is a magnet. I guess it’s better than having her head shove where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s no surprise that O’Donnell is as far left as they come. She has made many inflammatory remarks on subjects she really doesn’t have a clue about. You can only imagine what her morning routine must be like. Waking up, pissed off looking in the mirror and pointing at herself ” You can do it, Rosie, Republicans are the enemy, You’re a Goddess”. I’ve got news for Rosie, there isn’t a bone in my body that thinks you’re a Goddess.
Day after day, night after night Rosie takes to Twitter and attacks President Trump, as well as his 62 million supporters.

I think it’s time Rosie is locked up in a mental hospital for a very long time because this woman is beyond couch time. No therapist can handle the insanity this woman spews. Rosie, along with 99% of Hollywood are all on the same brain wave, and it’s scary. It’s no surprise Kanye West had a mental breakdown. If I lived in Hollywood I would probably do the same.
The now-canceled “Rosie O’Donnell Show” on NBC allowed Rosie to tell the world just how biased, and hateful she was as a person. It’s no surprise that Rosie’s show was canceled. The saying goes that if you live in Hollywood you can’t be a Conservative or a Gun owner. I think Tom Selleck found that out the hard way. Selleck appeared on the show once to talk about his new movie that was about to hit the big screen. Instead of talking about the show, Rosie decided to corner, and interrogate Mr. Selleck for appearing in an NRA commercial.
Via Capitalist Magazine:
In left-leaning Hollywood, one could more safely come out of the closet and admit to child molestation than a support of the Second Amendment. For Selleck’s colossal sin of being in Hollywood and conservative, the “Queen of Nice” jumped on Selleck the way Jeffrey Dahmer attacks a Chateaubriand.
O’Donnell: “But you can’t say that guns don’t bear responsibility. … Why would the NRA be against assault rifles? This is a gun that can shoot five bullets in a second. This is the gun that those boys brought into the school. Why the NRA doesn’t say as a matter of compromise: ‘We agree. Assault weapons are not good.’”
Selleck: “I can’t speak for the NRA –”
O’Donnell: “But you’re their spokesperson, Tom. You have to be responsible for what they say.”
Selleck: “I’m not a spokesperson –”
O’Donnell: “… But you can’t say that ‘I will not take responsibility for anything the NRA represents’ if you’re saying that you’re gonna do an ad for the NRA.”
Selleck: “… You’re carefully skirting the issue. It’s an act of moral vanity, Rosie, to assume that someone who disagrees with your political agenda to solve our problems cares any less or is any less –”
O’Donnell: “I never said you cared less. Tom, I don’t think you care less. Nor do I think the men in the NRA cared less. … I simply said, why can there not be a compromise?”
Selleck: “There is a compromise. There’s a compromise in enforcing laws, there’s a compromise in not allowing kids with guns in schools. The problem is, and what you don’t seem to realize. … Look, we all hang out with people we agree with, and you have a very one-sided view of the fact, but what you don’t understand –”
O’Donnell: “As does the NRA, and the people you hang out within the NRA have a one-sided view, as well.”
Had O’Donnell allowed him to speak, Selleck might have mentioned that people use guns perhaps as often as 1 million times per year for defensive purposes, undoubtedly preventing large numbers of murders.
Selleck might have said that Scotland and Ireland, countries with tough gun laws, have higher murder rates than the United States. Or that Switzerland, with a per-capita gun ownership higher than ours, has a lower murder rate.
Or that studies show that a woman who resists her attacker with a gun stands a better chance of avoiding injury or death. Or that convicted felons, when polled, say they are less likely to attack an armed person or enter a house where a gun is present. Or that Rosie O’Donnell does commercials for K-Mart, where one can purchase a rifle.
A piece of work, emotional liberals. – Capitalist Magazine
The NRA has been attacked for years for standing up to the Federal Government and making sure our Second Amendment rights are protected. There is no greater cause by the left than the one to take our Gun Rights away. The progressives know that as long as we keep in bare arms they can not control our lives like they want. Over the last four decades they have slowly started to disarm us, but with the election of Donald J. Trump, their efforts have failed. President Trump spoke at the National NRA Convention in Dallas, Texas this week. It’s nice to see someone in high office standing up for the rights given to us by God.
