Biden Campaign Scrambles to Make Up an Excuse After Trump Calls His Bluff on Golf Challenge

Share

President Joe Biden’s campaign staff is scrambling to excuse the candidate from a golf contest against his 2024 opponent, former President Donald Trump.

The two presidential candidates clashed at their first debate of the cycle on June 27, where their skill at the gentleman’s sport became a point of contention.

“I just won two club championships, not even senior, two regular club championships,” Trump said on the debate stage in response to a question about his age and fitness. “To do that, you have to be quite smart, and you have to be able to hit the ball a long way. And I do it. He doesn’t do it.

“He can’t hit a ball 50 yards,” the former president continued. “He challenged me to a golf match. He can’t hit a ball 50 yards.”

Biden was quick to pick up the challenge.

“Look, I’d be happy to have a driving contest with him,” Biden said in response. “I got my handicap, which, when I was vice president, down to a 6.”

“And by the way, I told you before I’m happy to play golf if you carry your own bag. Think you can do it?”

This bravado from Biden echoes a post made to the president’s X account earlier in the year enthusiastically challenging Trump to face him on the links.

Could Biden last through a round of golf?

Trump followed the debate with a direct challenge to Biden during a Tuesday rally.

“I’m also officially challenging Crooked Joe to an 18-hole golf match right here,” Trump said.

“If he wins I will give the charity of his choice — any charity that he wants — $1 million. And I’ll bet you he doesn’t take the offer.”

It seems that after the debate, the stage was set for a match between the two candidates. While both men clearly said they were open to the challenge, the campaign of 81-year-old Biden pulled the octogenarian equivalent of “Joe can’t go out and play right now.”

“Donald Trump hasn’t been seen in public for 12 days, now he’s inviting fictional serial killers to dinner, teasing lil’ Marco Rubio, praising Project 2025 architect Tom Homan, and challenging the President of the United States to golf,” Biden campaign spokesman James Singer said in a statement.

Instead of a presidential golf match, Singer suggested Trump “create jobs,” “stand up to Putin,” “follow the law” and “not destroy our country.”

“Joe Biden doesn’t have time for Donald Trump’s weird antics,” the statement said, “he’s busy leading America and defending the free world.”

Considering the very legitimate concerns about Biden’s mental health and free agency within his own administration and campaign, this statement itself can be called into question.

Biden has openly challenged Trump to a golf match and has not publicly backed down yet. Is he aware his campaign is now denying the potential competition? Further, did Biden have any part in this statement at all?

While it seems the world will not get the opportunity to see Biden bumble his way around a golf course, the 2024 elections are still set to be a spectacle.
