Peyton Manning played golf with Donald Trump as he tweeted about the London attacks
We’re going to go out on a limb and guess that it wasn’t Manning tweeting about the attacks, but Trump.

What did Trump say? We don’t know, it wasn’t actually mentioned in the article that painstakingly cited the actions of Trump on Sunday, including the fact that he did not tweet his statements on the attack while golfing, but while he was in the White House.
“Shortly after Sunday’s third tweet, Trump left the White House and was driven to his private golf club in Northern Virginia. Despite requests, aides provided no information on his activities during several hours at the club. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, and former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, both wearing golf attire, were seen getting out of the motorcade and leaving the White House after Trump returned,” reports Darlene Superville of the Associated Press.
What the media would have had a U.S. president doing on a Sunday the day after another country was recovering from a terrorist attack, we can’t speculate.
But, we would like to note that during Obama’s 300 rounds of golf, dozens of which were played while our U.S. troops were fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the casualties mounting, the mainstream media didn’t care.
Nor did they care when Obama played a round as the death toll in Afghanistan hit 2,000, or when he golfed as Louisiana flooded.
We’re not just suggesting that a Democrat president is treated differently from a Republican president, we’re flat out saying it.
