Golf Icon Backs Up Tiger and Trump in Stirring Remarks

It is easy to see why many Americans believe that the mainstream media is biased – the default reaction for just about any liberal woe is to immediately blame the President.

This isn’t so much hyper-partisanship as much as it is petty “resistance” and an awful case of bad sportsmanship.  It’s hard to buy the idea that the left could so vehemently hate a man whose economic successes are so unilaterally praised otherwise.  The true reason the left is mad is because Trump is winning…and he’s not Hillary Clinton.

When recently asked to disparage the President on television, professional golfer Tiger Woods declined, making a fairly remarkable comment about respecting the office of the Presidency.

Trending: Fuel for Thought

The attempted stunt with Tiger even reached the ears of President Trump before the media could bury it.

Now, one of the best to ever play the game is defending Tiger and Trump from the criticisms of a “resistance” gone mad.

Golf legend Jack Nicklaus backed Tiger Woods’ comments about respecting the President of the United States in an interview Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.”

Nicklaus said that Woods – whose 14 major tournament victories are second to Nicklaus’ all-time mark of 18 – handled the question well and that he agrees with his answer.

“No matter who’s president — whether it was Barack Obama or Donald Trump — I think you respect the office, and I’m much in Tiger’s camp on that,” he said.

It certainly is refreshing to see that such decorum and class still exists within the realm of sports and entertainment.

We sure haven’t seen much of that sort of thing these days.
