The people here saying that Tiger should say "Na I'm good" or that Trump is doing it to play Golf with Tiger don't know much about Tiger. He's going to accept it. Tiger's played with Trump before and the latter doesn't have to do this to play with him.

Quick google search for who Trump has golfed with-

Tiger (gasp!)
Rory
Ernie Els
Jack Nicklaus (cancelled!)
Yankee Paul O-Neill
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (kyanseru!)
Kirk Cousins
A large portion of the US Coast Guard

Who knows who else has played golf with the evil Trump?

Maybe... even YOU or someone YOU LOVE! *spooky music* muahahaha

"golfed with"

When you make up your own rules, own the course, and have your caddies cheat at every turn what exactly are you playing?

Golf may be played with partners and friends, but ultimately it's a solo game. I think for these people being invited and play with him, they get a free afternoon of smacking the ball around.

It's like when you didn't like the kid down the street, but you hung out with him because he had a Sega Genesis.

As a non american this only brings in more questions.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is basically the American equivalent of making someone a member of the Order of the British Empire or other orders of merit in various countries. It recognizes achievement and contributions made across a broad spectrum of human endeavors, including sports.

Could you like not make insulting generalizations towards Era users
If you're not issuing ridiculous purity tests, accusing somebody of supporting a white supremacist and his policies with no evidence whatsoever, denigrating a person for his infidelities a decade ago while comparing them to someone who sexually assaulted women and being disingenuous in numerous other ways, why does my post concern you? It isn't referencing you. So really, miss me with your fragility.

But, like, you're on ResetEra too, man...
I noticed. Because every single thread, no matter the topic, eventually turns into something involving politics/the white supremacist in the White House.

It concerns me because there are better ways to make your point than to shit on members of the forum. If you have an issue with a poster, quote them to their face so they can have a chance to respond instead of just making shitty derogatory generalizations. It's not "fragility" to give a shit about the site and to want discussion to remain civil.

Yeah, this isn't that strange. Trump's tweet is weirdly enthusiastic though. Maybe he's just happy to be in the company of another golf and pornstar enthusiast.

When just about every celebrity from A list to D list has shit on you, it has to be refreshing to see a celebrity (that he knows in real life too!) that hasn't criticized him or told him to eat shit. I'd wanna get on his good side too.

I don't think he's hurt. It's just annoying. His sentiment is not unique!

And yes, you can despise Trump and his policies, yet understand that he doesn't need to be every topic.
I mean, Trump's the one granting the award. Perhaps if his shitty policies, practices, and ideas didn't adversely affect so many people the world over, it'd be easier not to bring up the noxious stench attacking our senses at every turn.

*shrug*

More likely because he refuses to stand up for anything -- aside from being cozy with Trump he famously refused to support other minorities in golf --namely women -- who were being excluded by clubs. He is an amazing and inspirational athlete, but tbh he is a coward
Woods has never been political. Seems to be very private in everything EXCEPT golf.

“Respect the office.”
“Not the man”

Woods has played golf with former presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, the latter both in and out of office. There were efforts to coordinate something with George W. Bush, but it never came together, as the president cut back on his golfing in his second term.
In the same interview where he said respect the office he said let me play my golf. Woods is Apolitical.
That seems to make people angry how can he be not political as such an influential person.

He was born and raised on golf and it should stay that way. Who the fuck cares what he has to say? It's like, do you want him to say something really stupid to dunk on him because that's whtall happen. He's a golf savant.

In other words, let him stay in his lane

Celebrities say stupid shit all the time and I'd wish they'd shut up. This is no different.

Not that this even deserves a reply but are you projecting? Some of us are simply sick and tired of the turns every single thread eventually takes.

^Has 2000 posts on Era

Lmao
Am I supposed to be ashamed that I don't spend all my time posting on a single internet forum? You know a person is desperate when they resort to pathetic attacks that attack a person's post count. Been here just as long as you, tough guy.

Shame for Tiger it's coming from the piece of shit. He deserves it but I wish he got it from a president that wasn't an old racist cunt that will try to use him as a prop.

Dizzayum. To be fair though, that's only really a problem on the OT. Hangout threads and gaming side don't do that often. But yeah, its a bit of an issue here. I can't imagine what it must be like to not be from the US and post here and see this stuff argued all the time. Must be exhausting.

I mean, did you follow that dumpster fire of a thread over the weekend when a 40+ yr old golfer with a robotically replaced back ended up coming back in the back nine of the most prestigious golf tourney ever in the most unlikely situation ever only to have it shitted on in minutes? Then the thread was closed temporarily and that was the end of that?

Dude I am not shitting on Tiger at all. Can you please show me where I did that? What he did was bonkers, no two ways about it. Absolutely amazing. When it happened I was in disbelief, it's incredible. The only thing I called out is some dude coming in here and passive aggressively trying to shit on everyone because they're talking about Tiger and Trump in a... Tiger and Trump thread.

The fact is it's a really important thing that effects a lot. I understand getting tired of it, I get tired of talking about politics too. But, at any given moment it's going to be at the forefront of the minds of lots of people, and they are going to want to talk about it, and it's entirely understandable. The answer isn't to police them and how they feel, or shut that discussion down, it's much easier for each individual if they do not want to get involved in it to just not get involved in it, which is easy to do by just not talking about it, not quoting it, engaging with post that are not talking about it, and what have you.

If the first thing that happens when the greatest golfer of all time who refuses to be politcal wins a masters after 11 years is to chase his leanings, you re salted up.

It's a matter of perspective really. For some people, maybe a lot of people, the people you spend time with reflect your values. I don't think it's entirely unfair for someone to say Tiger golfing with Trump is problematic, the same way people said Rodman cozying up to Kim Jong Un is not good, or if someone were to go see a movie with Bolsonaro. Ultimately, it is hard for a lot of people to get past someone being able to have a fun time with a racist who puts kids in concentration camps, and I don't see how that is at all an unfair judgement.

Nah, because the only reason to hate him is because he's a cheater. And who cares about thtat unless you're a busy body bored with your own shit you can't handle a dude handling his own shit. He's not Rodman. He's tiger. He's lost millions.

He ain't politics. You're not gonna get a political answer. He's not Jackie Robinson. He's tiger woods.

I just explained how people would consider his actions political though, or at least a testament to his character. If you pal around with a fascist, of course people are going to have an opinion on that.
