Many people have drawn parallels between President Trump and former President Ronald Reagan, but one similarity is sure to have those on the left freaking out.
Both presidents take their personal security quite seriously. In fact, Reagan used to carry a small pistol with him at all times in case someone were able to breech his Secret Service protection detail, and Trump brought on the head of his former personal security to be by his side.
However, the president doesn’t just have his own bodyguard around him at all times. Being fully aware of the many threats he faces, Trump packs a special “gift” for anyone who would do him harm while he’s on the golf course, and it’s kept right next to his nine iron.
A pair of onlookers happened to notice when President Trump was playing a round of golf at his Mar-a-Lago resort recently.
The Palm Beach Post has more [emphasis mine]:
Trump, said to be a better-than average golfer who usually shoots in the low 80s, played the course as part of two foursomes, accompanied by several Secret Service agents who rode ahead of, beside and behind the president.
“Hey Dan, see anything strange about those clubs in the back?” one lunch guest in the club room asked another, pointing through the window to the golf bag in the trailing cart.
“Sure do. They have triggers.”
Yep, high-powered rifles nestled in there – just in case, heaven forbid, they are needed — with the woods and the irons and probably one of those little stubby pencils.
That’s right. President Trump carries with him some powerful rifles in case someone tries anything shady while he’s hitting the links.
How cool is that?
The best part is you know, judging by his recent actions, he actually has the stones to use one of them if he had to. It’s safe to say the same couldn’t be said of the former occupant of the People’s House.
