Note from me: I don’t begrudge a President some downtime…they do live in bubbles and have problems 24/7…but I confess, I am annoyed he can’t help with Sgt Tahmooressi. As he travels to play golf right now, he could make a 3 minute call back to the President of Mexico and say, ‘yesterday when we spoke, I forgot to mention our US Marine in your Mexican prison…is there anyway you could help fast track the judicial process for our Marine? I want him home in the USA…he did two tours in Afghanistan and has PTSD.” Note also, I refrained from posting a picture on this posting of the President playing golf. I thought that too snarky.
