Would you play golf with Donald Trump?

Postby Forsher » Thu Apr 23, 2020 3:36 am

Okay, let's ignore that there's a major public health crisis at the moment. Imagine it's some time in the future where Covid-19 is like SARS or whatever... incurable, but rare and containable. Or, alternatively, pretend it's, say, 4 June 2018.

Would you play Golf with Trump?

If you're wondering why I care, this is why. Do I know why that was a headline? No. But it was. If you're wondering... yes we know if John Key pisses in the shower. The answer is yes. The man will tell you anything. And apparently it's headline news even when he's no longer the prime minister.

Since I know NSG can be funny with the rules... these are the inviolable facts:

  • you are you... you're only as well known, rich, old, educated, male, white etc. etc. as you actually are (I feel Trump might like you more if you're a rich white guy that lots people know)
  • Trump is Trump
  • it's just golf... but it could be more, depending on your conversation goes :rofl:
  • Trump has a spare set of clubs if you need 'em

Since it's Trump, if he really likes you, there's a good chance he might make you the boss of something. I wouldn't bank on having much job security though.

I don't know if golf has to be played in a quartet or not but if that's the case the other two people are... random secret service guys. If you really want them to have personalities: Secret Service Guy A likes well done steaks and Secret Service Guy B says he likes well done steaks.

Okay... so, my answer is "Sure, why not?"

I've never played golf* nor ever spent one on one time with anyone important, it'd be interesting. Playing golf with a dude, even one as awful and image-dependent as Trump, does not make you complicit in anything other than "playing golf with a dude". Likewise, if you think Trump's the bees knees, you don't somehow get to share in his magnificence merely by playing golf with him (and, honestly, if you tried to I don't think Trump would like it). Interesting, as they say, is a cop out: it's a wholly amoral term, and the friend of the fence sitter.

*I have, however, whacked a golf ball with a golf club... I strongly recommend wearing gloves.

Actually, I strongly suspect any conversation with Trump would quite rapidly become uninteresting, but I really want to know what covfefe means :rofl: And, besides, there are the secret service guys.

Related question... you and any three other people are playing golf, who are your other three people? They can be dead or alive. Like the dinner party guest game. I'll pick Tiger Woods (because, hey, then I could say I played golf against him), Lebron James and James Comey ('cause they're tall and don't seem like complete idiots).
That it Could be What it Is, Is What it Is

Stop making shit up, though. Links, or it's a God-damn lie and you know it.

I'm a terrible golfer. The question should be, would he play with me?

Trump has a handicap of 2.8 which is good. It might be the one thing on Earth that he does well.

I ain't that kind of guy, who ever played golf, and I don't agree with ol' Trump on at least half of the issues, but why not? Cuz I could get some awesome things out of this, besides, I'll have an awesome story to tell at home to all the relatives.

But... why the heck would Trump play gold with random Ukrainian dude?

He's a Democrat, he's got a somewhat creepy habit of invading personal space of everyone, he's been accused of rape (obviously though, unproven in court) and he has a strange habit of saying senile-sounding things at times such as "vote for the other Biden".

Which still makes him waaaay better than Trump, who can at least equal him on all those things sometimes. Hell, he was even a Democrat voter not so long ago.

I've never played golf before and Trump doesn't seem like the person to teach it to anyone. As to the three people who I might want to golf with, I'm not sure, but they would have to be people I would want to talk to regardless of golf. That way, at least I can have interesting conversations while I try to block out the fact that golf pitches are just places to put balls down holes and I could be doing the same thing in my garden.

I'm kind of blind so my golfing is really shit, obviously, I've more chance of hitting myself through an over-enthusiastic swing than the ball, so no.
Would I meet Trump in another social situation though? Sure, who wouldn't want a chance to talk to one of the most powerful people in the world. I'm a rich white guy so we might get along.
