It’s as real as his score

But this IS REAL:

Trump Pressured Ambassador to Move British Open to His Resort: Report

While President Trump’s golf courses on the British Isles have long served as a nexus for his attempts to enrich himself while in office, a new report from the New York Times details what is perhaps his most brazen effort yet to boost his revenue abroad. In February 2018, the president allegedly pressured the U.S. ambassador to Britain, Robert Wood Johnson IV, to ask the U.K. government to relocate the lucrative British Open tournament to the president’s Turnberry resort in Scotland.

While the ambassador’s deputy Lewis A. Lukens warned Johnson that such a request would be an obvious ethical violation, Johnson reportedly felt pressured to go forward with it, according to three sources familiar with the matter who spoke with the Times. Three weeks after the request, Johnson floated the idea to Scotland’s Secretary of State David Mundell. As is common with State officials who speak out against the president’s requests to foreign players — whether to make money or influence elections — Lukens was forced out of the department months later, after informing higher-ups of the alleged action.

Lord Damp Nut is determined to make that golf course profitable, by hook or by crook and we know which one he is.

    Yeah, I’m sure pro golfers want to stay in a place, if briefly, where mold is rampant in all of the bathrooms while the beds are full of bugs and the cafeteria’s food quality is that of low-grade dog chow. FFS

    I have a better idea. Let’s move the Daytona 500 to Anchorage, AK instead.
