One of the universal signs of a massive ego is referring to yourself in the third person. It’s the sort of thing that irritating, pretentious people do.
So naturally, Trump did just that while praising his own golf game this weekend.
This is a sentence I had to type. “President Donald Trump refers to self in the third person while praising golf shot” — thanks, Red America. Thanks.
Since taking his oath of office, Trump has spent 73 days — almost two in a half months — at the golf course. And this last weekend wasn’t an exception to that; while Puerto Ricans drank Superfund site water and California burned, Trump went golfing. Again.
Naturally, the folks he went golfing with, Paul Ryan and Lindsey Graham, complimented him on his golf game, with Graham insisting Trump shot a 73. While I don’t know much about golf — I don’t know a lot about sports in general — Mediaite notes that if Trump shot that game four times, he’d beat out professional golf legends like Tom Watson. If that seems . . . a tad unrealistic to you, well, you’re not alone.
Of course, Graham wasn’t the only person talking up Trump’s game. Trump was talking up Trump’s game, too.
Instagram user Ryan Hansan posted a clip of the golf game. In it, Trump hits what appears to be a pretty solid swing — leading Trump to ask his fellow golfers:
You didn’t know Trump could hit two shots like that, did you?
Ryan fawned all over the president’s game, like the obsequious little underwear skidmark he is, telling the media:
The President never loses, didn’t you know? The President and his partner beat myself and my partner by three holes. He’s a little better golfer than I am, admittedly, but we had a good time.
And the only thing that could’ve made it more fun for Ryan is if he had malnourished homeless people carrying him around on a palanquin made from the flayed hides of orphaned children.

And this man golfed a 73? Sure he did.
