Tiger Woods Says ‘Respect The Office’ When Asked About Trump

Tiger Woods Trump

Tiger Woods isn’t going to become yet another celebrity that makes inflammatory remarks about President Trump.

Woods stood strong as members of the media attempted to bait him into taking a negative stance against Trump.

“He’s the President of the United States. You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office.” Woods said on Sunday, shutting down the media’s attempts to extract some nugget of anti-Trump sentiment.

The media member asking the questions was hoping to get Woods to side with NFL and NBA players who decidedly don’t like the President’s opinions on their internal matters.

The question by the reporter was fueled by Wood’s historically friendly relationship with Trump, both prior to Trump’s Presidential status and beyond.

“At times, especially 2018, I think a lot of people, especially immigrants are threatened by him and his policy — what do you say to people who might find it interesting that you have a friendly relationship with him?” a reporter asked Woods.

“Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years,” Woods said. “We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency.”

The reporter next attempted a calculating race bait, asking Woods about the state of race relations in this country. Woods replied saying he had just golfed 72 holes and was “hungry.”

Tiger Woods, as it seems, has a pair (for lack of a better term). While its likely that Woods will take a flurry of attacks today on Twitter, he’s also ensured that the media will find another celebrity to bait in the future. Much like New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, Woods has learned the value of disallowing the media from pulling his strings.

The media isn’t in control, Woods is.

It doesn’t matter if Woods is a fan or friend or foe of President Trump, what matter is that Woods didn’t cave to a malevolent media personality that simply wanted flair for his story. If Woods gives in to the media once, he’s forever enslaved to their tactics.
