Robert The Bruce Surfaces To Cut Trump Turnberry Ribbon!

Even though he died in 1329, Robert the Bruce surfaced to help open a revamped Trump Turnberry course named for him.

Helmed by Eric Trump, the ceremony also featurd bagpipes and course architect Martin Ebert.

Global Golf Post's Lewine Mair filed this breathless account:

The opening ceremony could scarcely have gone better. The media had no idea what form it would take and, when an actor dressed as King Robert the Bruce appeared over the brow of the hill on to the eighth green, even the most gnarled of cameramen emitted a disbelieving “Oh my God.” The King then fulfilled his duty in cutting the ceremonial ribbon with his sword.

For sure, it made for pictures which stuffed into second place the concurrent “magazine row” concerning President Trump. (By all accounts, staff at the hotel had been told not to display a Time magazine cover – it was of Donald Trump, dated 2009 – which was said to be a fake.)

The Washington Post has this video of the ceremony:
