Self-righteous golf social media blue checkmarks and Golf Channel talking heads who are in bed with the PGA Tour in its quest to destroy LIV, the Saudi oil money backed golf league, have been hellbent on doing whatever it takes to discredit anyone who dared associate with the Kingdom and its blood money.
Now President Joe Biden has a planned trip to Saudi Arabia this month where he will bend a knee to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in his quest to find a solution to high gas prices. President Biden famously called Saudi Arabia a “pariah” as a candidate over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Sleepy promised to make the Saudis “pay the price, and make them in fact the pariah that they are.”
Fast-forward to June of 2022 and Americans facing gas prices they’ve never seen and inflation through the roof.
Well, Jill, I need to make a trip over there to see that killer MBS to see what we can do to save the elections.
Oh, Joe, I’ll pack you a bologna sandwich. Do you want apple slices or a cup of peaches to go with it?
Aww shucks, Jill, you’re the best.
Meanwhile, Golf Twitter and the likes of Golf Channel blowhard Brandel Chamblee have a problem with Phil Mickelson joining the LIV Tour to make millions which he needs because he likes to gamble — allegedly to the tune of $40 million in losses over four years.
Phil Mickelson, from preternatural accomplishment to something of a pariah in one year is yet another reminder that most people still care more about the human condition than human accomplishment.
Human rights matter more than entertainment.

The shills for LIV golf: Greg Norman, Lee Westwood, Phil Mickelson etc. etc., keep saying they are growing the game and that it has to “evolve” well, I’d argue what they are involved in is not evolution, but evil-ution.

As I’ve said often regarding Phil’s involvement w/this tyrannical dictator, but also as it relates to Norman’s, they give the impression of two men who don’t have access to the internet. Purely for money, they are implying MBS is a better leader than Jay Monahan. Surely you jest. pic.twitter.com/0KlK97J3pu

Say what you want about Phil running off to grab a big bag of money, but this whole thing about self-righteous Twitter acting like they’re saving the world from this murderous thug MBS is laughable.
Take golf writer Robert Lusetich. You’ll never guess what he thinks of Phil and Joe Biden. Here’s how he feels about Biden. Here’s how he felt about Phil back in May for looking to fill up his savings account.
Phil canceled himself.

Here’s Lusetich after it was announced that Biden will be heading to Saudi Arabia:
What's dopey is that you don't think anything of Trump's lack of morals.
Biden's got 2 concessions from the Saudis: extending the ceasefire in Yemen and 200k more barrels a day from OPEC. This is what the Germans call realpolitik.

President = good.
Phil = a bad guy, he must be canceled for trying to do whatever it takes to fill up his savings account.
Here’s how this is all going to play out: Phil will go to the LIV Tour and make his money. He’ll be an outcast to the PGA Tour for years, as will DJ. Then, like 5-7 years from now when both have made enough money to gamble and buy new fishing boats, there will be a reconciliation with the PGA as it brings back the legends who will have a press conference where they will be forced by the next wave of blue checkmarks to apologize for their sins.
The checkmarks will write their self-righteous stories that will be read by the hundreds of fans who fake care about Phil and DJ’s money grab. Meanwhile, the millions of fans who don’t give two shits about how these guys go make money will be crushing beers and cheering them on to put on a show.
Give it a year.
The blue checkmarks will move on to a new way of saving the world.
