If you've ever visited the golf section in a sporting goods store and you've done a skyline ride on the golf simulator – in which you hit a golf ball in a virtual six-screen feet in front of you – you are probably wondering what type of asshole would actually pay to have one installed in their home. Today, you have your answer: Donald Trump is that kind of asshole.
Here's the scoop, from Washington Post:
President Trump has installed a one-piece "golf simulator" type game in the White House that allows him to play virtual rounds on courses around the world by hitting a ball on a big screen. video, according to two people about the system.
This system replaced an older and less sophisticated golf simulator that had been installed under President Obama, according to two people familiar with the previous system.
The Trump system cost about $ 50,000 and has been installed in recent weeks in a room in his home, said a White House official.
Please, resist the urge to say how Obama also had a simulator or to start thinking about how this news affects the Who Presidented Harder? dashboard that each DC hack removes whenever a president enters on a golf course. I'm asking you to think about how incredibly old c & # 39; is. $ 50,000! On a golf simulator! An entertainment technology so bland and retrograde that no American teenager would be able to spend more than four minutes to use one before praying to be brought home to be able to play again Fortnite.
Imagine Donald Trump waking up, eating any horrible meal, eating, watching Fox and friends, sending a few tweets, losing a few hours of consciousness following a spasm of dementia, then throwing himself into his extremely expensive golf simulator to reduce his daily hours of "management work". It's right in there, thwack, thwack, kick the ball in the mute screen, enchanted by the sounds and noises. It's hard to imagine a more heartbreaking scene.
