Awkward: Tiger Woods praises Obama’s ‘amazing touch’ on golf course

Sure, members of the media might have been a little bent out of shape over being banned from President Obama’s weekend golf retreat, but fear not: ABC has come through with the story after all. We don’t have photos of the president’s amazing touch, but we’ll take ABC’s word for it.

Come to think of it, this tweet’s a little awkward as well. Maybe it sounds a little different when you hear Tiger say it.

    the who cares tweet sums it up perfectly.

      “Twitchy Cares” is the new slogan for this website. No story is too small, so long as it can be used to stir up a little controversy. Meanwhile what is being done about the budget cuts?

      • Catchance

        Yeah, especially the “sequester crisis” that bothered Obama so much he had to go play golf for 3 days.

        Ronald, if the budget cuts are trending on Twitter, then it is fair game for use on Twitchy. This is NOT a news website, it’s a collection of trending Twitter topics. If a plane crashed into the Statue of Liberty, it wouldn’t be on here unless it was the topic of Twitter.

          Interesting. Is Twitchy using an algorithm to pull up what is trending? Or is there some filtering and choosing by Twitchy staff. I mean, there’s got to be some decision-making going on right?

            I’m sure there is some consideration as to what to put on the page, but the first criteria must be that it is not “just” a news story, but something that is on Twitter.

            There are different categories, so some seem extremely stupid, but those are usually in the Entertainment section.

      And here we have a collection of people who seem to care so much about how much they don’t care.. brilliant.

  • RightThinking1

    Now…, if only he can develop a feel for economics….

  • peteee363

    glad to see he has a skill, too bad he isn’t better at what he was elected to do. perhaps he can retire from this job, and try his luck a golf?

  • Emily B

    Well, he oughtta be good. He gets enough practice!

    • scooby509

      Gotta disagree. Nowhere near enough.

  • Love of Country

    Dinglebarry may be a lot of things but King Midas he is not.

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    I really don’t need to hear about Obama massaging Tiger on the golf course, or anyone massaging Obama in the ‘Oral’ office, thank you.

  • HARP2

    I`ll bet Reggie has an amazing touch too.

      And Larry Sinclair made the fourth.

  • DizzyMissL

    Well his swing was horrific

    I guess the statue of limitations for hanging out with a serial adulterer is 3 years.

      Every time he holds still, doing that Mussolini pose, I think I’m looking at a statue of limitations.

    You should see what he can do on hard wood though.

      Is that a triple entendre?

    Overheard on the first tee, “Hey Tiger, playing golf is like being President. It’s fun even when I’m bad at it.”

    I would have a pretty good golf touch too if I got to play that much golf for FREE. Honestly, has Obama paid for one round of golf in the past 4 year? Or has he tipped his caddy? Who paid the greens fee for the golf that was played this past weekend? Now there is a question for little boy Carney and it does not have any of that “complicated budget stuff in it”.

    Tiger: “He’s got pretty good stick.”
    — No word on how ‘big’ of a stick he carries. I’ve heard that only the VP has the privilege of reaching into that bag.

    Tiger: “I kind of forgot he’s a lefty.”
    — If only WE could forget. Tiger, of course, will be reminded of this when he files his income taxes next year.

    “Amazing touch”??? I’m sure Reggie Love agrees wholeheartedly…..

    Why do people have to lie in situations like this! I lost respect for Tiger!

    From what I hear, Obama has an amazing touch in those Chicago bath houses too.

  • lana ward

    Omuslim has an amazing Touch? Like the dems say , the end justifies the means!! LOL

    Im sure he has had plenty of time perfecting his swing over the last four years of doing nothing but traveling at the expense of tax payers. Does this man ever work? Lets not forget all the vacations Moochelle takes with the kiddies. I guess the country will be just fine now that Obummer has got his golf game going. Worst president of all time. He makes Carter look like a saint.
