So this is out on YouTube... Bryson DeChambeau has a series called "Break 50".  He and a guest attempt to break 50 as a 2-person scramble (both hit...take best...both play from there...repeat).

Yesterday they released one with Trump

Some thoughts after watching the first 5 holes.

Trump hits the ball well for someone his age. That said, any suggestion that he's breaking par is laughable.

Trump is not a good putter.  He's only winning club championships if nobody wants to beat him.

Trump looks old standing there watching Bryson.  Good for 79... but his "relaxed" moments show his age.  It shows how good he is when on stage.  Win or lose in November, he's gonna look old in a few years (like Joe).  80s is a brutal decade.

He has played a lot of golf, but he doesn't "understand" the game. His comments and questions to Bryson lack the depth of anyone who played serious golf.

Finally... he just can't tell the truth.  Turnberry is a great course, but it's not number 1 in the world on any list.  He says it 3 times in 10 minutes.  He never tells the truth.

As noted in the Biden thread yesterday... So much for the "President for all Americans" idea.  Even the WSJ appreciates how stupid Trump can be.

Trump Gives an Assist to Democrats

His reaction to Biden’s decision was small-minded and divisive

The 2024 election is Donald Trump’s to lose, and he may yet manage it. That was our reaction to his splenetic outburst on Sunday after President Biden’s withdrawal from the presidential race.
It should have been an opportunity to show some class and judgment by welcoming the decision, warning U.S. adversaries not to take advantage of Mr. Biden’s last few months in office, and saying Vice President Kamala Harris will have to defend Mr. Biden’s failed record. Short and presidential, with a unifying tone.
Not Donald Trump. On Truth Social on Sunday after the announcement, the former President posted this: “Crooked Joe Biden was not fit to run for President, and is certainly not fit to serve - And never was! He only attained the position of President by lies, Fake News, and not leaving his Basement. All those around him, including his Doctor and the Media, knew that he wasn’t capable of being President, and he wasn’t - And now, look what he’s done to our Country . . .” And on down from there. 
We realize Mr. Trump is frustrated that he won’t be able to run against Mr. Biden. But he remains the favorite and has a strong case to make against the Biden-Harris record. The GOP convention was a political success, despite his self-indulgent Thursday speech.
The biggest doubt voters have about Mr. Trump is that he’s a divisive, vindictive man who is unable to speak for all Americans. He had a chance on Sunday to show he is capable of more, but he didn’t rise to the occasion.


Shame on Joe for showing concern and kindness when contacting Trump after his brush with death.
  
This is the payback he gets days later.
   
Trump is reprehensible human and never fails to re-enforce that whenever given the chance. 
 
Some people apparently love that about him.

A true age of enlightenment, if all were in harmony. According to man*s scriptures and star-watchers this shouldn't be a problem at all.

Thing is, we as sand deem ourselves to be of significance.

Steely_D and I were speculating about your mindset, not steeler. My mistake. 

I am not pitying you. 

"I seriously resent and am offended by your decision that you should tell me what to do with and how to live my life."

You're always resentful and offended. Frat boys play drinking games based on your posts's use of "resent", "offensive", "how dare you" and variations on "go to hell." You're as brittle as a frozen piece of straw. 

"There is very little if anything that I fear anymore, except maybe a long, painful and lingering death."

Understandable and commendable, given your life experiences. And yet (not to be the belaboring @$$h0|e) you raise the risk of that kind of death by smoking. I know you know that. Steely_D and I were wondering if that's contributing to your comparatively harsh and belligerent attitude. That's how we got to this point in our "discussion." 

Let's stop here. I'm not going to pity your or give you advice or tell you what to do. I'd really appreciate it, however, if you could stop parroting Trump and right-wing pundits—or at least back up your arguments with evidence. I'm quite willing to consider other views and even change my mind but there have to be logic and facts in the politically oriented conversations we all have here. 

Woah. I wasn’t speculating about mindset or attitude.

I said cigarettes are hard to quit, and then said I’m not the one to cast the first stone.

So WTF are you talking about ?  When did steeler make this remark ?  I went all the way back to 28 Feb looking at his posts and nothing.

I don't need yours or anyone else's pity.  Nor have I ever asked for it.

I seriously resent and am offended by your decision that you should tell me what to do with and how to live my life.

And enough of all this projection of fear on me.  You and just recently islander.  There is very little if anything that I fear anymore, except maybe a long, painful and lingering death.  I'll take myself out should that present itself.  But I do not think about these things nor dwell on them.  I will talk about death, but it is nothing more than talking about a cold as far as I am concerned.  We all die.  No one gets out alive.  I have resolved all of these things years ago.  Does talking about death straightforwardly make you uncomfortable ?  That I talk about it does not mean that I fear it, or anything else for that matter.  I am not, I repeat not afraid of dying.  How about you ?  I have already faced death, looked it in the eyes and did not blink.  I had my NDE during my transplant.  What I saw and discovered during that just made me feel comfortable that there is something next and I am not afraid.  Just that I am in no hurry to get there.

So once again, take your pity somewhere else.

Just leave me the fuck alone with all your self important narcissistic self promotion.   I don't recall telling you or anyone else to stop doing anything to save yourself.
.
You live your life your way and I'll live my life my way. And you vote who you want to vote for and I'll vote for who I want to.

Capiche ?
