Fox News host Greta Van Susteren suggested Monday night that a photo of President Barack Obama whiffing a putt while golfing on Martha's Vineyard was "staged" and slammed him for perfecting his golf game while Americans are "out of work."
"What was he thinking? You know photographers don't have an open door to take pictures of the president any time they want," Van Susteren asked. "It's all staged and choreographed with secret service standing by. So this was not spontaneous."
White House pool reporters saw Obama miss the shot in the flesh and reported that he actually missed the next putt, too. CBS News also posted video of the president's less than stellar golf game.
"So why would the president do this for the cameras?" Van Susteren continued. "It's one thing to take a vacation, but is this pose shoving it down the throats of the American people? Many of them are out of work. They can't afford to spend the day working on their golf game in one of the most expenses places in America to vacation."
