White House Covers Windows In Black Plastic So Press Can’t See Trump Golfing


Hypocrite-In-Chief Hits The Links Again

President Donald Trump is golfing again this weekend, but he apparently doesn't want any photos documenting his blatant hypocrisy. 

Bloomberg's Jennifer Jacobs, a White House pool reporter, wrote Saturday morning on Twitter: "Trump's press corps has been placed in a basement suite at Jupiter golf club. Black plastic over windows to give Trump privacy as he golfs." 

Trump is hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, this weekend. 

More from the official White House pool report: 

The pool was escorted into the clubhouse after Trump and Abe were out of view and then led downstairs to a filing room, where we're told we'll be staying for a while. The door and windows are covered with black plastic so we can't see out. 

Photographers were instructed not to take pictures on the grounds of the private club. 

The entryway into the club included several leather couches, wood paneling, an iron chandelier and an oversized vase of several dozen roses. 

As we mentioned last weekend, Trump repeatedly and harshly criticized his predecessor, Barack Obama, for playing golf. But Trump played his first round of golf as president nearly three months before Obama did.
