President Obama has headed out to Fort Belvoir, Virginia for golf. With him are three of his usual partners, White House chef Sam Kass, trip director Marvin Nicholson, and aide Mike Brush.
He departed a little early for him, leaving the White House at 10:40 am. It’s the 34th time he’s played this year and the 145th time he’s played as president.
Obama tonight will be accompanied by Michelle as he makes remarks in Washington at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Phoenix Awards.
