  1. Oh but it was OK for Obama to go out and play golf right after making a statement about the beheading of James Foley? Oh how quick some people forget!

  2. What must Trump do, fly over there with a couple of umbrellas!? Its a damn storm you dumb, ignorant fool. Cant believe this guy is a mayor of a city. Goodluck London you are worse off than those affected by this storm, a natural occurance since the beginning of time…

  3. Trump has cost taxpayers more money playing golf in 2 1/2 years than Obama did in 8 years. Not only that since it is his resorts who is making the money? Why do you think he doesn't take a paycheck for POTUS? It's chump change! Too many conflicts of interest that the GOP will pay a heavy price for in 2020
