Putin is mocking Trump and his golf game: Ex-ambassador

The Kremlin is personally mocking President Donald Trump, a former U.S. ambassador to Russia has said, after state news TV likened photos of the U.S. leader playing golf to propaganda.“Mr. President, Putin is now getting personal in his mockery of you & your golf game,” Stanford Professor and ex-Ambassador Michael McFaul tweeted Monday. “This is a state owned network,” he added, linking an image from state-run channel Rossiya 1’s programming earlier in the day.“Definitely we will show and tell you everything,” the host of the show said before announcing a brief detour from proceedings to discuss the images that captivated “the entire world.”
“On the topic of propagandist photo albums, we made a small collection of exactly the same thing as what seems like propaganda to us. Who is that? It is, for example, Trump, traditionally playing golf. Obama is there wakeboarding with Richard Branson. Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister, is on our right in a kilt.”
The Trudeau example is a press image taken at a Scottish heritage event, while the photos of Trump and Obama were not even taken during their tenures as U.S. president. Obama’s image is from his first holiday after ending his second term in office, Trump’s golf trip is from July 2012, long before he even campaigned to be president.
