During a bizarre and unsettling interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News, Donald Trump decided to use a golf comparison when talking about police committing acts of violence and brutality against people. 

"You know, a choker. They Choke... shooting the guy in the back many times, I mean, couldn't you have done something different," he said, bringing up the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin by police officer Rusten Sheskey. Blake, a 29-year-old Black man and father, was shot seven times in the back on August 23 and is now reportedly paralyzed from the waist down. Three of Blake's sons were with him at the time of the shooting.

"They choke. Just like in a golf tournament, they miss a three-foot putt," the reality television star and president also said, referencing a hypothetical golfer missing a short putt. Ingraham, seemingly realizing that the callous comparison would be criticized, quickly steered Trump from it. "I'm saying people choke. People choke and people are bad people. You have both. You have some bad people and they choke," Trump continued after Ingraham interjected. 

Trump's comments come on the heels of Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers imploring him to cancel his scheduled visit to Kenosha. "I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing," Evers wrote. "I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together."

Elsewhere during the Fox News interview with Ingraham, Trump rambled about his usual talking points, many of them outright lies and exaggerations, and incorrectly said that Portland "has been burning for many years, for decades it's been burning" when speaking about the protests against racism and white supremacy that have been going on in the city since the killing of George Floyd.   

On the subject of the Black Lives Matter movement, Trump, who previously praised neo-Nazis as "very fine people," had to say this: "That's a terrible name. It's so discriminatory. It's bad for black people. It's bad for everybody... If you look at what's going on with the bats and a lot of thugs..." 

Trump also repeated his wildly outlandish claim that he's done more for Black Americans than any other president.
