I really, genuinely… Don’t even know what to say about this one, folks.
This evening, in one of the most absolutely bizarre statements I do believe I have ever seen from him, Donald Trump released remarks via his spokeswoman Liz Harrington on Twitter, in which he heavily bragged that he shot a hole-in-one during a round of golf with several professional players at one of his personal golf courses, only to turn around and rage about how much he hates people who brag.
I wish I was kidding. I really do.
“Many people are asking, so I’ll give it to you now, it is 100% true,” Trump wrote in his strange evening statement. “While playing with the legendary golfer, Ernie Els, winner of four Major and approximately 72 other tournaments throughout the world, Gene Sauers, Winner of the Senior U.S. Open, Ken Duke, and Mike Goodes, both excellent tour players, I made a hole-in-one. It took place at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, on the 7th hole, which was playing 181-yards into a slight wind. I hit a 5-iron, which sailed magnificently into a rather strong wind, with approximately 5 feet of cut, whereupon it bounced twice and then went clank, into the hole.”

“Playing with that group of wonderful, talented players was a lot of fun,” the disgraced ex-president went on to write. “I won’t tell you who won because I am a very modest individual, and you will then say I was bragging — and I don’t like people who brag!”
Trump has, in the past, been credibly accused of actually regularly cheating at golf by sportswriter Rick Reilly. In his book on the former president, Reilly writes, “Trump doesn’t just cheat at golf. He cheats like a three-card Monte dealer. He throws it, boots it, and moves it. He lies about his lies. He fudges and foozles and fluffs. At Winged Foot, where Trump is a member, the caddies got so used to seeing him kick his ball back onto the fairway they came up with a nickname for him: ‘Pele.'”
