President Obama played golf on most Memorial Day weekends during war and other crises

During his time in office, President Barack Obama played golf during seven out of eight of his Memorial Day weekends, yet the media remained silent.

Obama golfed his way through war and other crises yet the press gave him a free pass.

President Trump was pictured playing golf for the first time in months on Saturday - queue media frenzy.

Democrats and the mainstream press have been going wild over Trump golfing "amid a crisis."

The president's presumptive election "rival" Joe Biden even joined in, blasted Trump for playing golf while "tens of millions are out of work."

However, former Vice Presdient Biden was silent when then-President Obama went golfing on the same day H1N1 was declared a health emergency.

"Nearly 100,000 lives have been lost, and tens of millions are out of work," Biden's handlers posted on Twitter. 

"Meanwhile, the president spent his day golfing," Biden's account falsely claimed alongside a video of Trump playing golf overlayed with scenes from the pandemic.

The media echoed Biden's criticism.

However, President Obama was notorious for golfing — even when the country was at war, or in mid-crisis, according to Breitbart.

And he golfed on Memorial Day weekend every year but one.

According to the tally at, Obama golfed:

  • Monday, May 25, 2009
  • Monday, May 30, 2011
  • Saturday, May 26, 2012
  • Saturday, May 25, 2013
  • Saturday, May 24, 2014
  • Saturday, May 23, 2015
  • Saturday, May 28, 2016

The only exception was in 2010 when Obama went back to visit Chicago — and drew criticism from conservatives for failing to lay a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day to mark the occasion. (He laid a wreath at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery near Chicago, instead.)

In a series of tweets, President Trump responded to the criticism, noting it was the first time he had golfed in months — and that Obama had infamously golfed after speaking briefly about the beheading of American James Foley by ISIS:

Trump also returned to the golf course as several states began opening public amenities for recreation, and after Dr. Deborah Birx of his coronavirus task force told Americans to enjoy the outdoors while observing “social distancing.”

Before Saturday’s outing, Trump last golfed on March 8, 2020.
