I do have to say that it's par for the course (pun intended) for this place that posters are more worked up about this than about the negligence and malevolence of the current president.
So you're ok with the hypocrisy of the Obama's? Got it.

Golfing is a lawful, permitted activity under the lockdown orders in Virginia.

I think the main gist of it is not that he was simply golfing, but doing so as his WIFE was telling everyone else to stay home...

That's a blatant "Rules for thee; but not for me" attitude...SOP...

CS knows this, he just chooses to ignore it. He is busy towing the Leftist narrative to admit the hypocrisy.

What's permitted in DC and Virginia.

Residents in these areas are generally allowed to go out for exercise and necessities.

Just like his Hawaiian vacations where Obama was chauffeured to the the gym which had been cleared of common folks just like the golf course.

No, I just don't care about this. The current president is burning the country to the ground and you dipshlts are complaining about a private citizen going golfing (in full compliance with the Virginia lockdown orders).

here's the thing, Michele Obama above. She did another which encouraged everyone else to "just stay home, except for essential x, essential y, essential z. " not generally follow the VA lockdown order and get in you car go golfing if you want.

" RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has issued a stay-at-home order to help slow the spread of coronavirus. The order would still allow for people to leave their homes for certain essential activities like shopping for food and seeking medical treatment...
"Please stay home as much as possible," Northam urged Virginians. "This is a community-wide effort and I thank you for complying. This is a time of sacrifice. We need everyone to take this seriously and act responsibly."
...Governor Northam is urging Virginians to limit all non-essential travel outside the home, if and when possible. If you choose to go to the park, for a walk, or exercise outside, please practice strict social distancing and keep six feet apart from others.
All public and private gatherings of more than 10 people are banned...
Washington DC - Mayor Bowser Issues Stay-At-Home Order
“Our message remains the same: stay home,” said Mayor Bowser. “Staying at home is the best way to flatten the curve and protect yourself, your family, and our entire community from COVID-19. Many people want to know how they can help right now, and for most people this is how – by staying home.”..

"...For the purposes of this Order, the following terms shall mean:
1. “Allowable Recreational Activities” means outdoor activity with household members that complies with Social Distancing Requirements, as defined in section IV.8 of this Order, and includes the sanitizing of any equipment used both before and after the activity. Outdoor activities should not be conducted with persons other than those from one’s own household.
Examples: Walking, hiking, running, dog-walking, biking, rollerblading, scootering, skateboarding, playing tennis, golfing, gardening, and other activities where all participants comply with Social Distancing Requirements and there is no person-to-person contact..."
"Obama was spotted on the links at the Robert Trent Jones Country Club in Virginia, which is located approximately 40 minutes from his residence in an upscale Washington, D.C., neighborhood.."

Bottom line he's not at home, not setting an example,
Is Secret Service is family now? Less than 10 people in his Detail/Party?

Look i've got no problem with it. I say everyone should wisely go about their biz and pleasure.. the same as Obama and Cumo.
But don't be a hypocrite .

...Bystanders filmed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his wife violating the city’s stay-at-home order.
Here’s NYC mayor Warren Wilhelm Jr., AKA Bill De Blasio violating his own stay-at-home order to go for a walk in the park
His home is literally inside of a park.
Why did he need to “non-essentially” travel from Manhattan to Brooklyn to go for a walk?

And Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot got a haircut in defiance of her state’s stay-at-home order. She justified her excursion by essentially claiming that she needs to look good on TV.


A bunch of Hair on Fire, 'Do as I say, not as i do' democrats in this case CS.

Once again, it is NOT in full compliance of his own wife's public service announcement...Which is the actual point...

Hypocritical IRRELEVANT of legalities...

Don't forget that the golf course has to be maintained by the little people who risk more exposure to the virus. It's too dangerous for citizens to venture out from home except for essential activities but maintaining the golf course for the rich and powerful members of the country club like Obama well that's worth them risking their lives.

Back when he was President Obama delivered a wooden, formulaic speech in response to a live webcast of a terrorist beheading journalist Daniel Pearl. In it we were told the "world" wouldn't tolerate such brutality but no specific US action was promise. Obama then rushed off to change clothes before joining his friends for golf. Thus we see the importance of golf versus the lives of lesser folk to the historic President.
