The White House has dreamed up a new rationale for President Obama’s failure to head to the border during his stop in Texas today and tomorrow, saying that while there are an abundance of potential low-wage caddies, there is no decent golf course in the area.
Okay, that’s not exactly true.
According to NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker:
The official line from the White House is that if he does go there, he could ultimately get in the way of the efforts to deal with the influx unaccompanied children and minors and folks that are coming across the border.
Get in the way? Like physically? He might be standing on the border, and someone might not be able to get around him in order to get in?
He’s doing it for the children. Don’t you understand?
