With the first lady still on travel, President Obama today went golfing for the second time this weekend, an outing that also puts him at the three quarter century mark for total trips to the golf course as president.
Obama’s 75 times golfing since Inauguration Day includes 17 outings just this year. He made it thirteen weekends in a row Saturday with a trip out to the Andrews Air Force Base course.
Obama Out Golfing for 13th Weekend in a Row
President Obama hit the links today, making it 13 weekends in a row that he’s gone golfing.
As some of you speculated, with Michelle on safari in Africa, golf was pretty much a lock this weekend.
After having to basically clock in at work last weekend playing with the VP, Speaker Boehner, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), he’s on the course today at Andrews Air Force Base with his usual relaxing crew of younger staffers.
