Donald Trump has spent a stunning amount of time and taxpayer money playing golf. In one year alone, American taxpayers have spent close to an astonishing $92 million to ferry him to and from his privately-owned golf courses. As the graphic below illustrates, Donald Trump has spent more time golfing and vacationing than any other president in modern American history. It’s not even close!
With that in mind, check out what Washington Post data reporter Christopher Ingraham discovered while looking around the Trump’s website.
The website of Donald Trump, who has spent several days in a row at the golf course, is coded to serve up the following message in the event of an internal server error: https://t.co/zrWpyMXRcz pic.twitter.com/wiQSQNNzw0

That’s right, Trump’s website has an error message ready for launch that inexplicably and erroneously blames Barack Obama, who is retired, for playing too much golf—all while the current occupant of the White House has spent roughly 90 days this year playing golf. The freaking nerve of these people! And in case you weren’t pissed enough by now, here is what Donald Trump repeatedly told his gullible fans on the campaign trail last year:
“I have the greatest stuff and you know what? I love golf. But if I were in the White House, I don’t think I’d ever see Turnberry again. I don’t think I’d ever see Doral again. I own Doral in Miami. I don’t think I’d ever see many of the places I have. I don’t think I’d ever see anything, I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off and make great deals, right? Who’s gonna leave?”
Hear it for yourself:
