I would take the golf club and bash him in until I couldn't recognize him, but I suppose that's not in the poll options. So no, I would not.

Quite.

And the whole thing is ridiculous... or does Bromagia actually think Trump is unique in being called a murderer for his policies? Clue: he is very far from being that. For example: Tony Blair, murderer.

Never been golfing, and I don't think that going on a golf-outing with Trump is the best way to start. Although, I might "accidentally" let go of my golf club mid-swing, which may knock some sense into him. I'll think about it.

I won't pretend I know the guy, but still I would play. We're both men and as long as he isn't openly hostile we could probably have a working relationship.

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).


I think the more relevant question is, would Trump want to play golf with me. I shot a 71 the one time I played golf. Man, was that a long first hole.
Any accident you can walk away from is one I can laugh at.

I have heard he cheats, it's in some guy's book. I don't think he made any claim that he'd get aggressive if one pointed it out. So it'd probably be fine.
