Trump Compares Shooting Of Jacob Blake To A Golf Tournament

“They can do 10,000 great acts, which is what they do, and one bad apple ― or a choker,” he said. “Y’know a choker. They choke.”

President Donald Trump attempted to defend the police shooting of Jacob Blake, by comparing it to a golfer who “chokes” by missing an easy putt.

He was directing it to the shooting of a 29-year-old an unarmed black man, Jacob Blake, which was seen on video and has resulted to a new wave of protests against police violence, as well as several nights of civil unrest.

President Donald Trump defended the police, saying they’re the ones “under siege.”

“They can do 10,000 great acts, which is what they do, and one bad apple ― or a choker,” he said. “Y’know a choker. They choke.”

“Shooting the guy, shooting the guy in the back many times, I mean, couldn’t you have done something different? Couldn’t you have wrestled him? I mean, in the meantime, he might’ve been going for a weapon and there’s a whole big thing there. But they choke. Just like in a golf tournament, they miss a three-foot putt,” pondered Trump.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham interjected.

“You’re not comparing it to golf,” she said as Trump compared it to golf. “Of course, that’s what the media will say.”

But Trump pushed forward with his comparison.

“I’m saying people choke,” Donald Trump repeated.

“People panic,” Ingraham tried to correct.

“People choke,” Trump repeated. “You could be a police officer for 15 years and all of a sudden you’re confronted. You’ve got a quarter of a second to make a decision. If you don’t make a decision and you’re wrong, you’re dead. People choke under those circumstances and they make a bad decision.”
