I hope the president of the United States enjoyed his taxpayer-funded round of golf today.

While these two fight over their big mistakes let’s make sure Alabama doesn’t make one with either Sessions or a former football coach. I could sure use your help folks!— Doug Jones

Trump isn’t just playing golf today. He’s funneling US tax dollars into a private club that he owns. He overcharges Secret Service for the golf carts. No grift is too small or petty for Trump. He will steal as much as he can between now and November.

To the families of the fallen women and men who have died for this land we love: we thank you and honor your loss by continuing the fight for liberty, justice, and freedom each and every day.

In anticipation, I guess, of @realDonaldTrump’s trademark “Happy Memorial Day” message, his campaign sent out this request to celebrate soldiers’ sacrifices by buying merchandise to help re-elect a man who doesn’t know the meaning of the word “sacrifice.”

Guess who’s out golfing to celebrate his 100,000 dead Americans milestone?

Wow. From North Dakota's GOP governor: “If someone is wearing a mask, they’re not doing it to represent what political party they’re in or what candidates they support. They might be doing it because they have a 5-year-old child who’s been going through cancer treatments.”

Where is @realDonaldTrump going to church tomorrow?

Trump’s at Virginia golf club. Birx repeatedly warned 3 areas in US with highest % of positive coronavirus cases are *MD, DC, VA.* “This is so you can all make your decisions about going outside...potentially playing golf if you're very careful and you don't touch the flags.”

The PTA meeting where this plan was hatched must have been lit!!

It doesn’t much matter if someone thinks that UFOs landed at Roswell— but it matters greatly if someone thinks that the coronavirus isn’t real or that a vaccine may be more dangerous than the disease. Such beliefs pose a danger to public health.
