Trump Installs $50,000 Golf Simulator In White House And The Jokes Write Themselves

It’s no secret that President Trump enjoys his golf. He’s often photographed while teeing off on some of the top courses around the country and is estimated to play roughly 70 rounds a year.

Apparently, the president’s schedule wasn’t allowing quite enough playtime, though, because he recently purchased a $50,000 golf-simulator for the White House. Unsurprisingly, Twitter has some strong opinions about this Executive ‘Treat yo’ self’ moment.

According to The Washington Post, the system replaced an older simulator installed under President Obama.

The giant video screen, created by a Danish company called TrackMan Golf, allows Trump to play virtual rounds at top courses around the world.

And it costs a whopping $50K.

A White House official alleges Trump paid for the new system himself but has yet to use it during his “executive time” which is what he calls his unstructured hours of presidential chillaxin’.

According to the news outlet Axios, Trump’s “executive time” accounted for 60 percent of his scheduled hours in the past three months.

Of course, it wasn’t long before this outrageous purchase inspired some hilarious Twitter commentary.
