Trump Busted While On Another Golf Vacation Because Of Instagram's Geotagging Feature

Technology is making it harder for the President of the United States to get around without notice while making it easier for reporters to trail him. Instagram's geotagging feature helped journalists track down President Donald Trump last week after he was spotted at a golf course in New Jersey. Many of Trump's critics are in an uproar over the president playing yet another round of golf.

The president was spotted at the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday, May 6. An Instagram user on the court snapped a photo of Mr. Trump walking on the green with a golf club in hand. The president was sporting black pants and a white shirt and hat. His hat, as usual, read 'Make America Great Again.'

No sooner did the person who snapped the photo upload it to Instagram, reporters began swooping in - or at least they tried. They were held back at least six miles away from the course.

The original photo was deleted shortly after it went up and the poster's account was shut down. Los Angeles Times reporter Mike Memoli saw the Instagram post and grabbed a screenshot of it. He began circulating the photo and screenshots are now being passed around the internet.

"Yesterday in Bedminster (a few miles too close from my home) another hard-working day for the bloated Orange Man as millions worry about losing their healthcare thanks to Lord Vader and the Ryan express," remarked one commenter on social media.

The White House Press Corps staff had told the press that the president would be 'having meetings and taking calls' that day, and the press were eager to prove Trump was taking yet another golfing day. Trump critics have seized on the president's love for the game like a hungry predator pounces on a meaty hindquarter.

Mr. Trump has only brought these criticisms on himself. While he was campaigning he berated former President Barack Obama for playing golf too much.

"You know what - and I love golf - but if I were in the White House, I don't think I'd ever see Turnberry [in Scotland] again. I don't think I'd ever see Doral again - I own Doral, in Miami. I don't think I'd ever see many of the places that I have," Trump said last year at a campaign rally. "I don't ever think that I'd see anything. I just wanna stay in the White House and work my ass off, make great deals, right? Who's gonna leave? I mean, who's gonna leave?"

Mr. Trump has only been in office for under four months, but he's already far outpacing Obama when it comes to golf rounds.
