New York Daily News Reports President Trump was Golfing Yesterday – Except He Wasn’t
The New York Daily News tweeted that President Trump was golfing yesterday for the 9th time in 7 weeks. They showed a picture of the President on a golf course in their tweet. The problem was that this was not accurate.
In a tweet White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino Jr. responded to the New York Daily News noting that their tweet was in error. Scavino pointed out that the President appeared to be at a golf course but for a lunch meeting.

It is difficult to know if this was intentionally misleading or just poor journalism.
