As Twitter is wont to do, folks lost their mind earlier on Sunday when photos surfaced of former NFL star Peyton Manning and President Donald Trump playing golf at the president’s course in Virginia:

“Manning” is even trending as of the publication of this post:

Some examples of the hate from verified tweeps:
I know Donald Trump only does "business" on the golf course, so I'm sure Manning had important insights on the London attack!

Peyton Manning trying to buddy up with @realDonaldTrump? Just one more way he loses to Tom Brady.

After this bit of gibberish Trump strode manfully out of the WH to… play golf with Bob Corker and Peyton Manning. https://t.co/a5qvs0AZOt

Donald Trump has spent more time with Peyton Manning than his wife and son this week.

What everyone seems to have missed, however, is that Manning is in town to help raise money for Ford’s Theater at their annual black-tie gala:

President Trump and Melania are at the gala, too:
Night out. Pres and Mrs Trump have arrived at Ford's Theater for annual black-tie fundraising gala for the historic site.

So maybe just skip the outrage this one time, ‘eh?
