Donald Trump Asked Kirk Cousins About His Contract Situation And LeBron James Over A Round Of Golf
CSN - “Hey partner,” Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, beckoned to Kirk Cousins.
“Get in,” Trump said, as the Redskins quarterback arrived at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, N.J. on Saturday, June 10.
Cousins arrived as a guest of Trump’s for a personal round of golf, as first reported by the Washington Post.
The round was “as unpolitical as possible.” The President, wearing his traditional golf outfit of blue slacks, a white golf shirt and a red “Make America Great Again” hat, was affable, cordial, and interested in getting to know Cousins.
Despite two secret service members walking alongside the twosome, with multiple secret service members in golf carts flanking the group on every hole, the round was “peaceful” and “incredibly relaxing.”
Would you look at that? The most important man in Washington and Donald Trump played a round of golf together. Kirk and the Trumpster, playing a casual 18, shooting the shit. The great thing about Kirk is he is so nice, he has to be the ideal golf partner. No matter how much you suck, he’ll be there to give you a high five and a pat on the back.
But the round of golf was not without the hard hitting questions from POTUS:
As an avid sports fan, the Commander-in-Chief talked to Cousins about everything the average weekend golfer would want to talk about.
He posed the same question everyone in the D.M.V. is asking, wanting to know if Cousins will be back with the Redskins in 2018.
In typical Kirk fashion, the answer to the President was consistent with what he has been saying to the public, not giving specifics on the status of contract talks and focusing on football.
I have to believe Kirk tipped POTUS off a little bit with what the deal is. I don’t care if it’s President Trump, you let him know a little more than the media. Which means there might be some Secret Service guys out there with the inside scoop, and I know the Secret Service are all stoolies, so hit me up.
And finally, just guys being dudes:
The President spoke of his great friendship with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and inquired with the rest of the group on who they believe would win the NBA Finals (The Warriors led the Cavaliers 3-1 at the time).
The President also asked the same question sports fans around the country are asking, wanting to know if LeBron James is still the best basketball player on the planet, offering up no answer himself.
Hopefully a Kirk Cousins/Donald Trump bromance blooms, I’m very here for that.
