Once again, President-elect Donald Trump has attacked a reporter for merely telling the truth about how awful he is.
Earlier today, Trump kicked off the first day of the new year by playing golf – and it resulted in an unpleasant interaction between the future President of the United States and his former biographer. Apparently, when Trump rant into Harry Hurt III, a former reporter for Newsweek and the author behind Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, Trump kicked him right out of the golf course.
Hurt’s book had raised tons of concerns for Trump during his presidential campaign, as it was discovered that Hurt had written about the ugly details of Trump’s divorce with Ivana, in which she had given a sworn deposition that claimed Trump raped her.
On Facebook, Hurt explained that he’d gone to play golf with GOP donor David Koch at Trump International when he saw the President-elect. Hurt went to congratulate Trump on winning the election, and the President-elect couldn’t have been less gracious. Trump blasted Hurt for “that sh*t you wrote”, criticized the biography and then got his security to throw Hurt out of the golf course.
Hurt also stated that Koch was equally disgusted by Trump’s behavior and the two men went on to play at a “much, much better golf course.”
“David [Koch] was appalled. He branded Trump ‘petty’ and vulgar.’ We played Emerald Dunes instead, which is a much, much better golf course than Trump International.”

Once again, Trump has punished a member of the press for reporting the truth about him. If it were up to Trump, no person would ever be able to write one bad word about him, even if it was 100% accurate. He prefers to cover up all of his sexual assaults and other crimes by bullying Americans into silence or by creating another scandal to divert our attention away from the horrible things he has done.
