How golf explains Trump. Seriously.

Have you ever won a tournament you never competed in? Have you ever stolen the ball from an opponent to gain a competitive advantage?

That's nothing. Kim Jong-Il shot a 34 for a round in 1994.

Golf is like a inkblot test?  This is a serious article?  Every one cheats at golf.  If you deny it, then you are not being honest.  If you own golf courses and are asked what are the best, your're going to include yours.  That's just normal.  It's clear that this author has a ax to grind.  Another typical TDS fake news.

I don't play golf but if cheating is the bench mark of the game then they're only really cheating themselves. Sorry, but pretending you won a tournament is just not normal.

The problem isn't Trump and his cheating ways, the problem is a system that allows someone to become the most powerful person on the planet and not do an inkblot test or any test at all.

There is a level of cheating in every game, in everything.  All cheating is not bad.  In the Corps, we have a saying, “win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat”.  And how big was that fish that got away?  You’re concerned with some perceived lying by the President yet you don’t seem phased by the purposeful lying from the Progs and MSM.

You seriously think an inkblot test is legitimate?  If ever I take one of those, my responses will be “A woman with small breasts, a woman with medium breasts, a woman with large breasts”.

Cheating only serves a purpose if you don't get caught. But you do have a point. Cheating is perfectly natural in some instances. But i do have issue with your perceived bias from from the MSM and the so called progs. how is it their fault when Trump paints a target on his bac.k getting constantly caught out lying and stealing. How is it their fault if he dumb enough to get caught out?

I might have thought it was. anyway its a psychological evaluation that a president should take. You took one when you joined the Corps. But you take direction and instruction from someone that didn't take the same test. that really isn't right. and BTW i bet Trump probably get's the exact same result outta  an ink blot test as you did.

 Hi RavenHawk.  What does that mean?  When a marine says cheat, does he mean take every advantage?  Do everything you can to trick the enemy? I don't consider that cheating.  I think the samurai had a saying, "Never die with a sword undrawn."  

Is there something else to that saying?

Well of course you are.  That is confidence and salesmanship. That doesn't seem like cheating either.  I don't play golf, so I don't know whether everybody cheats or not.  In football or basketball, you push a rule until it breaks and if you are seen you get a penalty.   That is competition, and yes, attempted cheating too I guess. 

I only reveal my age when I say this, but when I played high-school sports, we were told not to get penalties.  That was unsportsmanlike.  Times have changed.

 

Do cheating and dishonesty overlap?

Who knows what is true with this story. Perhaps this topic unintentionally exposes what is really wrong in this country: media and the left so verklempt with hatred for Trump (or any other non-leftist politician) that they play fast and loose with facts to sully him at every level. Maybe cheating at golf was Reilly's metaphor for collusion? :lol:

New depths of Trump Derangement Syndrome. 

They can't get him on Russian Collusion. 

So they get him on golf. 

Unproven innuendos and smears. Pathetic. 

I wonder if VOX is aware that they are planting the seeds of a Trump victory in 2020, along with a collapse of their circulation and revenues ?

Doesn’t matter if you are caught or not if the cheating serves the purpose.

 

But you do have a point. Cheating is perfectly natural in some instances.

In all instances.  It’s just that sometimes the purpose can be achieved without cheating.  All politicians lie and cheat to some degree.  What is important is the intent.  There are currently two intents.  One (and as corning as it sounds) is to make America great again and the other is to usurp the legitimate power of the country.

 

But i do have issue with your perceived bias from from the MSM and the so called progs. how is it their fault when Trump paints a target on his bac.k getting constantly caught out lying and stealing. How is it their fault if he dumb enough to get caught out?

That’s the point.  Trump doesn’t paint a target on his back.  The Progs and MSM have TDS so severely; they’ll paint a target on anything that gets near Trump.  Where does Trump constantly get caught lying anyway?  But you want to compare Trump’s faux pas with that of the Progs and MSM?  The Progs (and they are Progressives – the American Socialist Party.  The Democratic Party no longer exists) and MSM are far more prolific at it.  We watch their lies daily.

 

Don’t you think it is interesting that a fake news story (TDS) about golf comes out right after Trump awards Tiger Woods with the Medal of Freedom?  The real racists don’t like that.  How dare a Black accept such an award even if it is Tiger.  I wonder what would happen if Trump awarded a MoF to Obama?  It would be like Kirk telling Norman that Mudd always lies and then Mudd tells Norman “I am lying”.  That is how the Progs and MSM react.  They are Norman!

 

I might have thought it was. anyway its a psychological evaluation that a president should take.

That is a poor psychological test.  At best it reflects what’s on one’s mind only at that time.  It’s like hypnotism; one has to be receptive to it.  Watching a movie right before or having a conversation or even an undigested piece of onion will affect such a test.

 

You took one when you joined the Corps.

It has been a long time but I’m pretty sure I did not.

 

But you take direction and instruction from someone that didn't take the same test. that really isn't right.

And that’s why it is not accurate.

 

and BTW i bet Trump probably get's the exact same result outta  an ink blot test as you did. 

Probably would.  Intelligent people with sufficiently high EQ probably give boring answers.  They probably would rather look at clouds or star patterns.  I guess the Zodiac was the original Rorschach test.  The Greeks and then the Arabs would use Mizar/Alcor as a test of the sharpness of one’s eyesight.
