Donald Trump takes on Golf Digest over their rankings and we're supposed to care
I understand we live in an imperfect world, that our priorities and perspective sometimes get knocked askew. Though it may be no fault of our own, we sometimes place value where it should not be placed, and vice-versa. We are human and we are frail.
But there comes a time when all good and true men must stand up and say to their neighbors: "Rise, rise and fight this abomination!"
Good people of the earth, I beseech you: We must once and for all rid ourselves of this cancer, Donald Trump.
Why, oh why has this dandy-haired, puffed-up, bird nest-bouffant-headed, mega-egomaniacal boor been allowed to flourish among us?
This crass, vulgar lout, this hideously-coiffed macaroni, lords his wealth over the land like it gives him some kind of special privilege.
Alas, it does. Often, in America, if you say something is so, it is so.
Don't ask me why Donald Trump is all over television like he has some kind of talent. Don't ask me why people seem to accept that he has some kind of authority.
Do ask me why Trump recently called Golf Digest a "disgrace." The magazine left his International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla. off its list of 100 best golf courses in the world.
Speaking to the New York Post, he also accused Golf Digest's publisher, Thomas Bair, of saying Trump had to buy ads in the magazine to get his golf course on the list.
Now, that is a serious accusation and, if true, Golf Digest deserves to be publicly humiliated. But, the accusation has no merit because it comes from Trump. Trump is an international, moneyed clown with no sense of taste or style, no wit, integrity, intelligence, humanity, decency or honesty.
He seems to think money can buy anything. He seems to think everything he touches is gold. This is a delusional, modern-day Midas who is too arrogant to realize he has over-stayed his public welcome.
Look at his pinched face, just look at it. Aren't you sick of it? Seen often, over the course of time, it will cause headaches, nausea, internal bleeding, incontinence and worse.
It is high time we were done with The Donald.
It may seem like Northern Ireland is a newcomer as a golf destination, but there are plenty of century-or-older courses here. Foreigners have just avoided them in recent decades as sectarian strife kept golf tourists to the south. But peace has returned to Northern Ireland, and golf travelers are one of the biggest beneficiaries. Royal County Down and Royal Portrush are revered worldwide, and there are a host of other excellent links courses around which to to build a whole golf vacation.
