    Not only that.
    why would he say it's totally off the table? why should he throw that card away?
    If he was concerned about what trump did or will do he would have done it already. What he is concerned is his own future.
    What he is telling trump is "watch how you treat me, I still hold that card".

    Trump’s golf course will no longer host 2022 PGA Championship

    PGA of America’s board voted to move the 2022 PGA Championship away from President Donald Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

    “The PGA of America Board of Directors voted tonight to exercise the right to terminate the agreement to play the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster,” said Jim Richerson, president of PGA of America.

    The Associated Press reported that the PGA previously removed an event from one of the president’s golf courses when in 2015 it canceled the PGA Grand Slam of Golf at Trump National Los Angeles Golf Club.

    The AP reported that move came after Trump made disparaging comments about Mexican immigrants as he sought the Republican nomination for president.

    — Christine Wang


    On Ya PGA of America’s board ...

    December’s jobs report confirms Trump is set to be the worst jobs president on record


    This is not what most people would call a “V-shaped recovery.”

    Among other promises Trump has broken — getting Mexico to pay for a border wall, say, or his oath of office — there’s also his pledge on jobs. Trump once vowed that he’d be the “greatest jobs president that God ever created.” Instead, with Friday’s jobs report, he’s on track to become the first president since modern employment statistics began to leave office with fewer U.S. jobs than existed when he was sworn in.

    Trump’s inaction: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...mp-worst-ever/

    OH! What’s this about?


    Confusion erupts after State Department webpage claims Trump’s tenure ends tonight

    A bizarre situation unfolded on Monday when a webpage on Mike Pompeo's State Department claimed that President Donald Trump's term as president would end on January 11th.

    On a biography page for Trump, the State Department noted that his term began on January 20th, 2017. But it also said, "Trump's term ended on 2021-01-11.


    The website listed a specific time currently reading as 7:40 p.m. eastern. But a screen capture by Laura Rozen showed the time as 7:49 p.m. And a capture of the page by Archive.org showed it at 7:22.

    MORE President Donald Trump

    Maybe enough people got to him to tell him the best thing for the country is for him to resign. Would be a stretch for the ego-maniac, but we can always hope.

    Donald Trump withdraws support for Chad Wolf, who sent federal agents to Portland protests, after Wolf condemned assault on U.S. Capitol

    "Any appearance of inciting violence by an elected official goes against who we are as Americans,” Chad Wolf said Thursday. Some 90 minutes later, Trump had withdrawn Wolf's nomination to head the Homeland Security department. (Shawn Thew/Pool Photo via AP, File)AP

    Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf resigns; FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor to take over

    "I am saddened to take this step, as it was my intention to serve the Department until the end of this Administration," Wolf wrote, citing ongoing litigation challenging the validity of his appointment.

    "Unfortunately, this action is warranted by recent events, including the ongoing and meritless court rulings regarding the validity of my authority as Acting Secretary.
    These events and concerns increasingly serve to divert attention and resources away from the important work of the Department in this critical time of a transition of power," Wolf added.

    We don't know shit about what the president (Trump) is up to. He should hold a press conference and tell us. But wait, his freedom of speech has been taken away (not)
    What does it matter what Citizen Biden is up to?

    TBF he may have had some help from COVID-19 with that, or maybe his mismanagement of it anyway.

    You shouldn't include anyone else when posting - Biden isn't the president yet and if you have to ask what he is doing then you're too thick to check

    Good on them too, it's a Major so the entire top 60 players in the world + exemptions will be there. The only thing going thru Trump's mind would have been hand-choosing 3 of the biggest names to play with in the Pro Am, and how many likes he'd get on Facebook for the pics he'd post of himself with them. He'll have smoke coming from his ears watching it on TV thinking what could have been

    Trump blames Antifa for riot

    President Trump today privately — and falsely — blamed "Antifa people" for storming the Capitol, even though clear video and documentary evidence exists showing the rioters were overwhelmingly Trump supporters, Axios' Jonathan Swan reports.


    Why it matters: Despite facing an impeachment vote for an assault he helped incite, the outgoing president is still sticking with his tried-and-true playbook of deflecting and reaching for conspiracies.


    Behind the scenes: In a tense, 30-minute-plus phone call this morning with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Trump trotted out the Antifa line.


    McCarthy would have none of it, telling the president: "It's not Antifa, it's MAGA. I know. I was there," according to a White House official and another source familiar with the call.


    The White House official said the call was tense and aggressive at times, with Trump ranting about election fraud and an exasperated McCarthy cutting in to say, "Stop it. It's over. The election is over."


    McCarthy, who is facing major blowback for his role in encouraging dissent over the election outcome, went further:


    He told Trump he should call Joe Biden, meet with the president-elect and follow tradition and leave a welcome letter in the Resolute Desk for his successor.


    The president told him he hadn't decided whether to do so for Biden.


    A White House spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
