Podcast #52: Politics ain’t beanbag, but there is a lot of golf

Politics ain’t beanbag. Timeless words and a timeless truth. Today on the Young Voices podcast we’re joined by Jerrod Laber, who wrote a piece in the Washington Examiner on the partisan politics of playing golf. During every administration the public is treated to 4-8 years of the opposition attacking the president for playing golf and not working, and the Trump years are no different.

Jerrod wrote about this in response to Shaun King, a prominent Black Lives Matter activist, who has argued that Republicans attacked Obama’s golf habits and not Trump because of racism. Jerrod says it is just politics as usual.
