Did you hear the one about Peyton Manning going golfing with President Donald Trump? The former Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts quarterback was spotted at the White House before joining Trump and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) at Trump National Golf Club. Of course, social media was divided over Trump who was very vocal about the recent terrorist attacks in London, now spending time playing golf.

Manning has denied interest in running for office, but that does not mean he cannot rub elbows with politicians. However, there was a strong divide on social media about the photos. Trump was once a vocal critic of former President Barack Obama’s golf trips. Now it would seem that Trump enjoys a golf outing just as much and has come under criticism for his own frequent weekend golf outings.
Here are some reactions from those disappointed about Manning having fun at golf with Trump.
Peyton Manning not bothered by bigotry, xenophobia, sexual assaults, fraud. A real role model

Peyton Manning always a RW jerk. He has business ties to one of the worst Right Wing A holes Papa John. And played for Elway another one.

If you’re more angry at Peyton Manning for playing golf with Pres. Trump than you are at terrorists for killing people…you’re the problem.
