After building a controversial golf course on Scotland’s protected sand dunes, Donald Trump ruffled more feathers today by breaking ground on another 18-holes, this time in the active leukemia wing of Children’s Hospital LA.
Earlier today, The Apprentice creator addressed concerns at a press conference on the hospital’s helipad. Safety measures include forbidding golf carts in the operating room, banning anything above a five wood near hospital beds, and a third precaution that was inaudible above the roar of Trump’s chopper.
“But the great game of golf is not the enemy here. Cancer is,” the real estate mogul deflected.
“Patients are still expected to wear proper attire. And their visitors must be accompanied by a club member at all times. At the end of the day, this children’s hospital is still a golf course.”
Greens fees will top $100, although insurance covers everything after a $30 co-pay.
