Viral Photo Of Trump Golfing With Lindsey Graham Sets Off Waves Of Laughter And Speculation

On Saturday, as the nation was mourning the passing of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the darkest days of Jim Crow segregation in the Deep South, Donald Trump went golfing in Virginia, taking along Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

The two played for a couple of hours, and photos of them managed to be taken by the media, even though the president tries desperately to keep all photographers far away from the links when he’s playing, perhaps because he knows it proves that he’s not actually “working” the way he claims to be, and also because when he wears a polo-type shirt, you can easily tell that he’s morbidly obese, despite the White House physician swearing the president only weighs (wink wink) 243 lbs.

Photographer Jim Lo Scalzo got this shot, which quickly went viral, but not for reasons that would be the least bit pleasing to either Trump or Graham:

The scene looks like something right out of the classic TV show “Gilligan’s Island,” with Trump in the role of Skipper and Graham cast as Gilligan aka “little buddy.” It also appears that the president is giving a direct order and Graham is taking a moment to decide if he’s going to do as he’s told the way he always does.

Twitter users had some other thoughts on the bizarre tableau presented by the photo, and some of them are spot-on:

Poor little Lindsey! Once again he’s stuck being Trump’s caddie and not even getting tipped at the end of the round.
