What exactly is the objection to someone being a career politician?  Honest question.

After all if I wanted  to be a brain surgeon I wouldn't train to be a lawyer.

(Not that I ever had any wish to be any of the above.)

Cause you're supposed to enter politics to make a difference not to make money.  Someone like Biden who has been in politics for 47 years should set massive alarm bells ringing.  You don't last that long without being utterly corrupted, as we know he is.

Yeah I knew that.  I've met like fifty people who are friends of his or have had lunch with him etc.  And when I say met I mean spent hours in their company. I could tell quite a few Trump stories that are excellent but won't share on here.

Well my favourite one is the ATand T tournament at Pebble Beach.  Pro-Am, the most prestigious in the world. Trump played in it once or twice about 10-15 years ago.

So nobody wanted to caddy for Trump. This story comes from the guy that did, second hand.  He turns up, all the caddies refuse to work for him, so they get a 16 year old from the pro shop to do it.

The deal is you work for the week, then they give you about two grand.  So he works for Trump for a week, gets like 7 or 8 hundred dollars at the end of the week.

Kids dad is enraged, follows Trump to a local private airport as he's leaving, says to him that's disgraceful, he could have earned more just working in the pro shop this week, Trump throws two hundred dollar bills on the ground as he's getting onto the plane.

Then Pebble Beach told him he's banned for life for stiffing his caddie.  He'll never get to play in that tournament again.

He also spent ten years trying to play in the Dunhill  right up until he was elected basically, and was told to f**k off, and personally visited the R and A in St Andrews to try to get the Open at his course in Aberdeen and was ejected from the building within ten minutes.  This was just prior to him becoming president.

All that is 100% true, can take it to the bank.

Its true.  I knew I'd get this Incase you hadn't gathered I spent years caddying at one of the top ten golf courses in the world.  You get people from the highest echelons of American politics all the time.  Off the top of my head in recent years I've had the governor of Alabama, Joe Biden's chief of staff, a guy who co-owned a political consulting firm with Karl Rove, a city commissioner from Cincinatti, a Democratic Senator from California, on and on and on.  And if it isn't a figure directly involved in politics they generally are very well connected to those that are.

I was trying to work out the Presidents in the picture:

From left: Grant, GHW Bush. Ronnie, GW Bush, Abe, Ike, Ford, The Donald, Tricky Dicky, Teddy, Silent Cal and I think Harding and Hoover are in the background behind Teddy.

If it's all of them then Hayes (background behind GHW Bush?), Arthur, McKinley, Taft and Harrison should be in there somewhere but I can't be arsed looking closely. Is that Taft behind Ford (Taft was a fat b*****d)?

You're missing Daddy Bush standing behind St. Ronnie, no?

 

 

How many Bushes do you think were president?

Carnoustie and a bit on the Old Course too.  You wouldn't believe the people you meet.  I must have met a hundred billionaires, and the ex PM of Canada, even the ones who aren't in politics are often very closely connected to it.  Friends of the Bush's etc very common.

Last year had a guy can't remember what he did, nice guy, 17th hole, now you have a rule in caddying - no matter what never mention politics or religion.  Espeically with Americans, cause a lot of them are very religious. 

But sometimes you do if they do, you can feel them out a bit.  Anyway somehow politics came up and I went on a 45 second rant about what a terrible person Trump is and what a disgrace it is that he's president.  The guy was really nice and dignified, let me finish, then just goes 'Mr Trump is actually a close personal friend of mine, his daughter from his second marriage to Marla Maples is my daughter's best friend they were college roommates, I've visited him in the White House several times blah blah blah'.  So you never know who you're talking to.

I mean you can't take that back, glad it was the 17th hole.  Another guy told me he won a competition at one of Trump's courses and part of his prize was he got to have lunch with him.  So he gets taken into this verandah type area Trump is there, apparently he had about 15 mobile phones arranged on the table in front of him.  All in a big semi circle.  Said Trump had lunch with him, and every 30 seconds or so one would ring, Trump would answer it, bark some instructions, then carry on his conversation.  He said whatever anybody else says about him he isn't stupid, he was carrying on 16 conversations at once.  That other guy above actually he said that too, he said 'what you see on TV is a persona' etc.

I think the best thing to remember with Trump is the people he is appealing to are idiots.  Idiots are literally his target market, not necessarily that he is.  And there's a lot of psychology going on when he speaks, like triggers and dog whistles and key words and distorting the facts.  I don't think there's any chance he's as dumb as he makes out.
