Money doesn't talk, it swears.

As if the GOP's full public embrace of Christian Nationalism and CPAC holding another one of their nazifests later this week isn't enough, Donnie Psycho Trump and a gang of obviously sociopathic professional golf goons just held a Saudi-funded Golf Tournament* in New Jersey despite the protests of 9/11 families and other decent human beings who lost family and friends on 9/11. That's right, the tournament was funded by the very same people who funded the 9/11 attacks that murdered over 700 people that had called New Jersey home; six from my hometown, in fact. And you thought that Biden fist bump was uncalled for?
The tournament was held at Donald Trump's golf course in Bedminster, NJ. It's bad enough we have to pay the Saudis money for much of our gas and oil but holding the event in New Jersey was a total "in your face" move. They might as well have promoted it with Bin Laden lifesize cardboard standups holding golf clubs. Maybe the Saudi Royals did that in the privacy of their palaces. Next year it will probably be a commemorative diamond encrusted "Bonesaw By Jared" in every golf bag. As for Trump, who says he has "no regrets" and defended his decision to host the tournament by falsely claiming that "Nobody's gotten to the bottom of 9/11," it was no doubt an always welcomed opportunity to hurt people and take in a fortune of Saudi blood money at the same time. For the golfers, it was obviously just about the huge piles of Saudi cash (more blood money) they stood to make not just by playing in the new "9/11 Open" but by also leaving the PGA (Professional Golfer's Association) for humongous Saudi money enticements literally in the tens of millions of dollars to join Saudi Arabia's new disgustingly named LIV (pronounced 'live') golf association.
We all know how Traitor Don is always obsessed about crowd size, ratings, and the size of all sorts of things. Sadly for Little Donnie, the attendance at his 9/11 Open was quite small, puny in fact. Ticket sales were so low that, by Sunday's final round, they could be had for only 1 dollar at the appropriately named Stub Hub. I expect Little Donnie will have Sean Spicey Spicer pulled out of the bushes any minute now to tell us that his "crowd" was the biggest to ever attend any sporting event in all of the history of humanity. Period.
* Fuck you and Triple Bogie Fuck You to pro-golpher Greg Norman who has served as chief recruiter for the new Saudi golf association. Insensitive for pay participants include top golfers Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson (He finished #1 on Sunday and pocketed $4 million just for the win), and Lee Westwood, all of whom took the blood money millions X10s to leave the PGA and join with their new Saudi pals. What's next? Seditious TV treason buffoon Sean Hannity wearing a keffiyeh on the golf channel?
