NYT Reporter Tries to Get Tiger Woods to Comment on Donald Trump

“It was an A+ answer to a far leftwing media member who wanted to interject him into the world of politics and use Tiger Woods’ name to make a name for himself.”

-- Clay Travis

Listen to Clay Travis praise Tiger Woods for the way he handled an aggressive line of questioning during a post-round press conference from a New York Times reporter who was trying to incite Woods into making critical comments towards Donald Trump.

The reporter asked Woods about his relationship with Donald Trump just moments after his final round at the North Trust PGA Tour event and then asked for Woods to comment on Trump's reputation in the minority community in an uncomfortable sequence that Woods brushed off.

"Well, he's the president of the United States," Woods said about his past history playing golf with US Presidents. “I’ve known Donald for a number of years. We’ve played golf together and we’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency. You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like or dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office.''

When asked if he had any personal thoughts on race relations in the United States, Woods was quick to release himself from the awkward questioning.

"No, I just finished 72 holes and I'm really hungry," Woods said.
