While liberals are famous for their double standards, after all the hours President Barack Obama has spent on the links during his two terms in office, you would think any criticism of others that centered on golf would be off the table.

In a jaw-dropping act, BuzzFeed News got in a cheap shot at presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, who was in Scotland on Friday to mark the reopening of the Trump Turnberry range. The news organization posted on Twitter a video clip of Trump teeing off, along with the caption: “The World Is On Fire And Donald Trump Can’t Stop Talking About His Golf Course.”

As for what Obama was actually doing for the day, it doesn’t get any better than this. Social media user Glenn Carswell noted that the president was busy fundraising Friday — his observation was confirmed by CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller.
