A reporter got stuck in less than stellar surroundings Saturday. As President Obama golfed at the fancy Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va., an exclusive course that has hosted four President’s cups, the reporter was put in a maintenance shed.
On the way to the shed, Houston Chronicle‘s Kevin Diaz first waited in the equipment shack cafeteria (whatever that means). Later, he was sent to a” maintenance shed” to wait out the President’s golf game.
As he noted in his White House Pool Report, “POTUS motorcade departed at 4:45 from the gated, lakefront campus of Robert Trent Jones’ signature golf course, which looked like a nice place to play golf, at least from the maintenance shed where pool spent the day.”
How kind of them.
En route to the club, Diaz never laid eyes on Obama. But he did observe a funny driver on I-66.
“Poolster observed one motorist on I-66 from DC extend his middle finger at the motorcade, but unable to tell if said motorist knew who was in the motorcade, or just didn’t like being passed,” he wrote in his report.
