Hokey Smoke… The Sacrifice!

Never let it be said that President Gump hasn’t made some pretty heavy-duty sacrifices in this time of war (he is a “war president” you may recall). Via ABC (Australian) News we learn that he quit playing golf in 2003 because of the war.

“I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal. I don’t want some mum whose son may have recently died to see the commander-in-chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them.”
— G.W. Bush

Wow. Flag pins, bumper stickers and not playing golf… now THAT’S showing support for the troops!
