Trump: 7 Shots in the Back is Like a Missed Putt

U.S. President, Commander-in-Chief, and celebrity golf cheat Donald Trump compared the police officer who shot Jacob Blake in the back seven times last month to a golfer who missed a simple putt:

“They can do 10,000 great acts, which is what they do, and one bad apple – or a choker, you know, a choker, they choke – shooting the guy in the back many times. But they choke, just like in a golf tournament, they miss a 3-foot putt.”
