Feb 19, 2013 Comments Off on Press Finally Gets Question To Obama After Golf Weekend: ‘Did You Beat Tiger?’ Pat Dollard
“Beat” might’ve not been the best choice of words, considering…
Excerpted from The Daily Caller: After a Golf weekend in Florida avoiding the press, President Barack Obama returned to the White House Monday night, where he faced screaming reporters trying to hold him accountable by asking, in unison, “Did you beat Tiger?”
According to the White House pool report, Obama returned to the White House at 8:10 p.m. on Marine One. As he exited the helicopter on the South Lawn and made his way towards the South Portico, a group of reporters demanded to know whether the president vanquished golfing legend Tiger Woods, his Sunday golf companion.
The president appeared to have heard the question and cracked a smile, according to the pool report, but just continued on his way.
The probing question followed a weekend in which reporters “expressed extreme frustration,” in the words of White House Correspondents Association president and Fox News correspondent Ed Henry, over their lack of access to Obama during his golfing sojourn.
