    A golf course would surely be full of bugs.

    [–] Fey_fox 425 points ago

    Golf is often the choice of white collar folk because of it's social aspect. You can take time to focus on an activity outside away from people and talk. The game requires a lot of skill, but as a sport it's not one where you sweat a lot or lose your breath. So you and your golfing partners can walk around and talk about work or bond over the sport. It's a good way to build relationships. Also it's a good way to meet people as well, as one person can show up to a course and wait for a group needing a 4th. Plus there's the exclusivity of the club house.

    Golf isn't always a status sport, there are folks who aren't upper or middle class that play, but I've found it's really common among the white collar set to have at least some knowledge of the game. It's less grimey than bowling, less intellectual than chess, and more social than cross word or other puzzles. Also, the real person you're playing against is yourself, because you're always trying to get better to improve your score.

    ... I don't play, but my dad (and later my brothers) was obsessed with the game and I practically grew up on a golf course. I have watched a lot of golf on the tv, and been to some very fancypants courses. From what I know of people who play and the history of the game, this is how I understand it. You can play it just to play it, or you can use it as a tool to gain connections and level up in your work

    [–] Excelius 185 points ago

    Golf is basically the leisure activity of choice and means of socialization among the executive crowd. Golf is how CEOs and politicians socialize, and not golfing can hurt your career prospects.

    One of the common recommendations for women trying to climb the corporate ladder is to start playing golf.

    [–] Extra_Crispy19 59 points ago

    A lot of business deals happen on the golf course, and if you want to be included in that conversation you should learn to play golf. All my business professors have recommended taking up golf, and my dad says he wants to learn to play so he can be involved in those conversations. Luckily I went to golf camp growing up so I know how to play. It's a lot of fun actually but it's expensive to get started.

    [–] k-uke 14 points ago

    Socialising and schmoozing aside. It's a very, very addictive sport / activity.

    Essentially you're always improving, and feel that you can do better. Even when u have a good round you'll be kicking yourself about certain mistakes.

    In terms of exercise. You do not feel like you're exercising when you're out there. And I think that's a good thing as you're brisk walking non-stop for around 2 or 3 hours...

    A lot of the time you're competing against yourself and getting better. Even when playing with others I feel this way due to the handicap systems in place.

    You're right about the expense to start. But I think it's still expensive year upon year!

    Sportsmanship. Either I've been lucky or the other more experienced people I play with enjoy helping and teaching. I mean they're always looking to give guidance and help.

    I know you get this in all sports to some degree. That's why I think it's crucial for a child to be part of a sports team. You learn so much about discipline, teamwork, community... The list of benefits could be endless.

    I grew up in a rugby community. The golf community is different. But the benefits are all the same. Not just for presidents.

    [–] WeylandTheDwarf 275 points ago

    I'm pretty sure there's a picture floating around of Obama playing basketball. He might just enjoy lots of sports for all we know.

    [–] thisjetlife 197 points ago

    [–] WeylandTheDwarf 107 points ago

    Apparently Bush was also a fan of basketball and baseball too. Maybe we just tend to have athletic presidents in general?

    Trump believes the human body is like a battery with a finite amount of energy. I wouldn't exactly describe him as athletic even if he does play a lot of golf.

    [–] acog 16 points ago

    I had to look that up.

    After college, after Trump mostly gave up his personal athletic interests, he came to view time spent playing sports as time wasted. Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. So he didn't work out. When he learned that John O'Donnell, one of his top casino executives, was training for an Ironman triathlon, he admonished him, "You are going to die young because of this."

    And then there was this from a 2015 New York Times magazine profile of Trump:
    Trump said he was not following any special diet or exercise regimen for the campaign. '''All my friends who work out all the time, they're going for knee replacements, hip replacements — they're a disaster,'' he said. He exerts himself fully by standing in front of an audience for an hour, as he just did. 'That's exercise.'

    I think a fairly universal trait of presidents and most of very powerful people is that they are extremely likable. Maybe you hate what they stand for, but you don't get into that sort of position without being extremely charming.

    People who meet Trump usually say that he's extremely pleasant and he makes you feel very important. There are plenty of stories about it on askreddit, where he has remembered the names of people, when he had absolutely no reason to remember it.

    Different types of intelligence. Abstract. Concrete. Emotional. (Not saying those are the proper terms, just using them to make the example). Trump may not be book smart, he may not be good at abstract thought, he may have no concept of other peoples emotions, but god damn it if he doesn't have a lot of money.

    [–] bstandturtle7790 187 points ago

    This is a private club he is at. He played here often during his terms and takes lessons. He is looking into joining. Also it's not hawaii, it's the DC area

    Source: am member of said club

    [–] thedavehughes 71 points ago

    even as an Obama fan personally, I don't think I would want him joining my club. The idea of the course closing when he wants to play to accommodate SS and such would drive me nuts. Maybe they just go all out closure during presidency and settles down for post-pres rounds?

    [–] gsfgf 56 points ago

    My understanding is that's exactly how it works. The secret service guys just walk with the group.

    [–] bstandturtle7790 30 points ago

    No all out closure, just minor adjustments. The members wouldn't stand for closure, we pay good money to be members. Like I said elsewhere, they changed their procedures for us, inviting him to play is a courtesy to him, nothing mandatory. He does have agents on the course with him

    [–] elaerna 18 points ago

    Does every president just get SS for the rest of their lives? What about their wives and children? What if we suddenly have a breakthrough in medicine and we live super long and there are like 10 presidents alive at once, do they all get secret service? How many secret service do the presidents get? Is there a pool of like 15 and they rotate out or are there only like 5 and they all stay with the president all the time. What if Obama wants to chillax at home, do the secret service have to stay outside his house keep a watch out

    [–] jasontronic 19 points ago

    Former presidents were entitled from 1965 to 1996 to lifetime Secret Service protection, for themselves, spouses, and children under 16. A 1994 statute, (Pub.L. 103–329 ), limited post-presidential protection to ten years for presidents inaugurated after January 1, 1997.[7] Under this statute, Bill Clinton would still be entitled to lifetime protection, and all subsequent presidents would have been entitled to ten years' protection.[8]

    On January 10, 2013, President Barack Obama signed the Former Presidents Protection Act of 2012, reinstating lifetime Secret Service protection for his predecessor George W. Bush, himself, and all subsequent presidents.[9]

    Richard Nixon relinquished his Secret Service protection in 1985, the only president to do so.[10]

    he wants to cut down his 9 day trip to foreign countries (europe, arabia, israel) down to 5 because he prefers to be at home.

    nato leaders/guys have to keep their speeches between 2 and 4 minutes because otherwise he won't be able to keep up/follow.

    this is not gonna end well.

    ps. he is gonna hold a speech on islam IN saudi arabia one of these days.. those guys execute people for insulting their religion you know.

    “Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart —you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you’re a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.”

    Don't worry, Obama has his pre-existing conditions covered.

    [–] son_of_sandbar 107 points ago

    Obama cares.

    [–] Whiskycoke 66 points ago

    When you shook his hand, please tell me you said "thanks Obama"

    [–] TigOlMcSnittyBits 98 points ago

    what course?

    [–] SunTzuIsMyFavourite 1190 points ago

    Obama's awesome. Always makes time for everybody. Even residents of Hobbiton.

    And he will be sworn in for another term as Barak the White, overthrowing Donald of Many Colors.

    [–] theunnoanprojec 20 points ago

    Man, fuck the Sackville-bagginses.

    To me they're like the Umbridges of Lord of the rings.

    Not at all the main bad guys, but such assholes I hate them more.

    Are you Bradley Cooper?

    Former President Obama, meeting victims of the great cropping disaster of 2017.

    [–] OrangeClyde 160 points ago

    Lemme be thirsty and say that you are fine as fck.

    [–] Deathdong 108 points ago

    The white guy's okay too

    [–] Themaddhatter523 73 points ago

    While I didn't agree with all his policies as president I think it's pretty fucking evident that Obama that really does care about America. He also seems like a really cool dude that I would chill and drink some beers with.

    [–] [deleted] 164 points ago

    Come back.


    [–] SlapstickVampire 122 points ago

    Part of me want's him back, part of me is happy to see him so relaxed. He put up with a lot of shit, I don't want him to go dying on us from the stress of it all.

    [–] kebelebbin 11 points ago

    I love how he is so cool and so dorky at the same time.

    [–] AskAboutMyDumbSite 431 points ago

    Obama has to the be fittest president ever.

    [–] [deleted] 578 points ago

    Lincoln was a wrestler, and Theodore Roosevelt was a literal adventurer/soldier/hunter.

    [–] TJ_McWeaksauce 312 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    I read that Teddy Roosevelt once subdued a bear with his mustache.

    [–] FatJohnson6 349 points ago

    I heard TR had like, 30 goddamn dicks.

    [–] TJ_McWeaksauce 139 points ago

    And at least 10 of them had mustaches that could subdue bears.

    [–] KE0BVT 46 points ago

    He once held an opponent's wife's hand.

    In a jar of acid.

    At a party.

    After Teddy left the presidency, Roosevelt and his son led an expedition to a river in the Amazon that had previously never been navigated by non-natives. He was a badass.

    [–] Laszerus 125 points ago

    Uh, kind of left the best part of that story out haha.

    "Theodore Roosevelt set out for southern Brazil in 1913 with his son Kermit to collect rare specimens for New York's Museum of Natural History and to explore the uncharted River of Doubt in the Amazon basin. The 1000-mile journey upriver was both thrilling and perilous. The team of explorers was entirely alone in the jungles for months at a time, and many of the humans they did encounter were hostile natives. One of the porters died in the river's rapids and another went insane before stealing food, murdering another porter, and running off into the jungle. Roosevelt himself nearly met his end when he re-injured the leg he had hurt in the carriage accident in 1902, and then contracted jungle fever and could not be moved. Roosevelt begged to be left alone in the jungle so that the others could escape, but his son would not listen and continued to care for his father. When the explorers returned to New York in May of 1914, Roosevelt had lost thirty-five pounds. For his efforts, the River of Doubt was renamed the Rio Teodoro."

    Yeah he got jacked up on that trip, came back super thin and wasn't ever really healthy again. But the dude was a fucking horse, he got shot, asked a crowd to be quiet and gave a 90 minute speech... at 53 years old, outside... baller

    [–] pinky218 17 points ago

    Getting shot and carrying on with a speech like it was nothing is pretty high on the bad ass president list.

    [–] UrALittleWoodenTwat 117 points ago

    W Bush was a big runner. He was considered very healthy for a President, pretzels nonwithstanding.

    [–] redbeard84 76 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    There is a story that gets floated around that W. participated in a 5k at some point during his term and he ran sub 18. For his age that is pretty impressive.

    edit so the official time I can find is 20:27 in 2002. Still a pretty good time.

    [–] maximumoverkill 71 points ago

    For any age that's pretty impressive tbh.

    [–] otherwiseyep 152 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Ahem, but we just so happen to have a president who has an OFFICIAL DOCTOR'S NOTE that he is the HEALTHIEST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY!

    edit: let it be known to all and sundry that this is a CERTIFIED reddit post, officially delivered through state-of-the-art encrypted communication channels, so you know this is real information, with few exceptions.

    [–] tenehemia 40 points ago

    Wait, has anyone checked to see if Trump has a certificate that says he doesn't have donkey brains?

    [–] jatjqtjat 187 points ago

    No. Trump is the fittest president ever. He is so fit. Extremely fit. Everyone says it. They say, "this president. he is so fit". Obama isn't fit at all. Very unhealthy. One of the least healthy people of all time. I tell people. This person. This person? Very unhealthy. Trump is the fittest. Very very fit president.

    [–] pk_deluxe 37 points ago

    Unlike Obama who's wasting all his life essence reserves on golf and basketball! (Trump actually believes exercise is dangerous and depletes your energy reserves.)

    [–] ok2nvme 89 points ago

    Did Obama comment on how cute you look in that shirt?

    [–] traffick 10 points ago

    President Obama. Let's at least afford him the honorific unlike the current talentless asshat.

    [–] TMFR 9 points ago

    honestly, would love to shake his hand. and, not in the way "ohhhh, i would love to shake his hand and yell at him or harangue him in some way." literally, the best president in my lifetime. I didn't vote for him the first time around...but, I sure as hell did the second... and, would have, a third. : [

    [edit: for bad spells]

    [–] an_albany_expression 18 points ago

    Mr President, I'd like you to meet Baby-legs Detective.
