Tiger Woods was Asked About President Trump. His Answer is Perfect.

Published

on

A professional athlete is someone who gets paid to play a sport or game for a living. In order to make it in the world of pro-sports, a person has to eat, breathe, sleep, that particular game or sport.

This means, over time, these individuals are experts in their sport of choice. It’s their bread and butter, the one thing they know best in all the world.

Given these truths, why is it sports journalists always want to ask athletes about subjects that are clearly out of their wheelhouse? Like politics for example?

This is precisely what happened to Tiger Woods, who was asked by writers about his stance on race relations in America and how he feels about President Trump after playing 72 holes of golf.

After his final round Sunday, sweat still pouring from his forehead, Woods was asked by a sports writer: “Your relationship with Donald Trump, how would you describe that personally and professionally?”

“I’ve known Donald for a number of years,” Woods said. “We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. And so, yeah, I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency,” Woods said.

The writer — reportedly from The New York Times — followed up.

“At a time, especially 2018, I think a lot of people, especially people of color, immigrants feel threatened by him, by his policies. He’s thrown himself in sports debates in terms of race with [NBA player] LeBron James, with the [national] anthem. What do you say to people who might find it interesting, I guess, that you have a friendly relationship with him?”

Woods’ answer was perfect — exactly the answer all Americans, including limousine liberals in Hollywood, should give when asked.

“Well, he’s the president of the United States and you have to respect the office. And no matter who’s in the office, you may like, dislike the personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office,” Woods said.

“Do you have anything to say more broadly about the state, I guess, the discourse of race relations?”

“No,” Woods said with a slight smile. “I just finished 72 holes and I’m really hungry.”

Woods must have an IQ that is well north of 160, because his answers here are pure genius. These writers are desperately trying to get him to take a particular stance on these issues, which, no matter which way he goes, alienates a significant portion of his fan base.

Rather than take the bait, he tactfully answers the question and moves on. Smart. Really, really smart.

If more celebrities took this road, it would be much, much easier to appreciate their time, talent, and work.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.
