Page Six: Some Winged Foot Members Want Trump Presidential Portrait Erected

Emily Smith of the New York Posts says some Republican members of Winged Foot are lobbying for a portrait of the President to be erected in the Clifford Wendehack-designed clubhouse.

Smith says there is opposition, including "senior club management".

The insider continued, “It seems the leaders of Winged Foot do not want to rock the boat and politicize the club, given that the US Open will be at Winged Foot in 2020.”

The President's locker at the club where he's been a member since 1969, no longer has his name on it.

“Each member has a locker with their name on it, but Mr. Trump’s name has been mysteriously taken down. Some members are outraged because there seems to be no justification, apart from, perhaps, too many people were trying to take selfies at Trump’s locker, or they simply don’t want to advertise his membership.”

Too late now!

Heck, there's a member of my fine club who's in jail, awaiting his murder trial. Seems that he murdered his wife, who was also a member of my fine club. Anyhow, his locker plate is still on his locker. So is hers'. Man, everybody's so sensitive these days! President Trump deserves a locker plate ... until he cheats again.

How about above a urinal and on the inside of a stall door. That’s two portraits of our un-pottytrained White House intruder.

White House intruder? That's establishment talk if I've ever it. So the guys an asshat. At least it's not a secret so nothing he says comes as unexpected. Better to know what you're dealing with, as opposed to the last two, that "acted" presidential but all the while behind the scenes, were doing the country dirty in so many ways. Time to reflect on the reason we have Trump.
