USA In the present day sportswriter and Trump hater Christine Brennan blasted Corridor of Fame golf legend Annika Sorenstam and far of the golf world Wednesday for refusing to trash former President Donald Trump. Sorenstam has offered her soul for the outgoing president and blew it by not repudiating him, Brennan wrote.

On Jan. 7, Sorenstam obtained the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Trump “lower than 24 hours after he incited the lethal rebellion on the U.S. Capitol,” Brennan incorrectly alleges. She had an opportunity Tuesday to repudiate Trump, apologize for her actions and admit she made a mistake.

“She did none of that,” Brennan raged. “Failing miserably to grasp the gravity of her affiliation with one of many darkest days in American historical past, she as a substitute fell again on embarrassing, insipid clichés.”

Sorenstam stated she’s not wanting again and never second guessing. Not precisely what the USA In the present day Trump hater extraordinaire wished to listen to. Golf has not even entered the 21st century, Brennan asserts. For golf is …

“A Trump-loving, wealthy white man’s sport, largely; a sport nearly utterly out of contact with what’s taking place on this numerous land outdoors the partitions of its unique nation golf equipment and the home windows of its non-public jets.”

The tirade by Brennan (in picture) continued. As Trump departed the White Home “in shame, his presidency in shambles … there might be many in golf who will preserve an allegiance to Trump it doesn’t matter what, together with company leaders who run the sport, and the boys’s and ladies’s Tour gamers who’ve strongly and brazenly supported him.”

It doesn’t must be this fashion, and golf might change if it actually wished to, Brennan continued. Sorenstam had a chance “to proper a flawed, to appropriate the document, to make her break from Trump. She’s a trailblazing girls’s sports activities icon, an outline hardly ever hooked up to a Trump fan. This was her second.”

Sorenstam’s phrase issues as a result of she is the brand new president of the Worldwide Golf Federation, and he or she’s a task mannequin for women. However, to Brennan, she and different {golfing} figures are blowing alternatives to cancel Trump:

“Silence has gripped every kind of people that ought to have an opinion on a golf famous person’s go to with the person who incited the lethal assault on our democracy. LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan by no means replied to a Jan. 7 textual content message in search of touch upon the problem, whereas U.S. Golf Affiliation president J. Stuart Francis replied to an electronic mail saying, ‘On the subject you requested about, I’m not able to touch upon it.’ ”

Angered over a sport that, whereas it has eliminated a prestigious 2022 match from Trump, refuses to sentence the previous president, Brennan fumes that the sport ought to be greater and higher than him.

“Is not golf purported to be about honor and ethics and decency? What on the earth are these individuals so afraid of?” asks Brennan. Who herself raises the query: aren’t media purported to be fair-minded and set biases apart?
