The White House announced on Friday that President Trump would give up golf this weekend “out of respect” for the victims of the Parkland, Florida school shooting. But just because he said he wouldn’t hit the green doesn’t mean he wouldn’t hit the club!
Right after giving a big thumbs-up with his little, little hand, Trump went back to Mar-a-Lago, where he and Melania attended a Studio 54 themed party.
“So the president did arrive,” wrote David Lloyd Merrill, who attended the bash after hearing Trump would attend. “I couldn’t meet him or speak but was about 3’ away. Super cool no matter what your political affiliation!”
Yeah, super cool that Trump could take time out of his busy day of seeing kids with gunshot wounds to go to the most boring Disco themed party rich people could buy.
Some of Merrill’s followers weren’t too impressed.
Over on Twitter, when Kevin Liptak, a CNN White House reporter, posted the news on Twitter, users didn’t hide their anger.

That’s so MAGA, especially right after doing some thumbs up photo-ops for a school shooting that happened right down the street.

I get why his various 'issues' render him tonedeaf, but what is her excuse?

Right after the thumbs-up and grinning photo ops with politicians and first responders.
I know he lacks a conscience, but does he even have a soul???

Not surprising. This is what Obama did after meeting with families who lost their children. pic.twitter.com/BiErv2wZYn

You can’t make this crap up. He is at the hospital for only 20 minutes but goes to a party. Ryan went to a fundraiser, so I guess it was party time in Florida for the NRA!

And it doesn’t even look like they changed clothes. Just went straight to the party. Then, on Saturday, he tweeted:
Melania and I met such incredible people last night in Broward County, Florida. Will never forget them, or the evening!

Ah yes, what an evening to remember.
