PGA Pulls Championship From Trump Golf Course

The consequences to Donald Trump and the Trump Organization from last week's Capitol riot keep pouring in. Sunday night, the PGA announced it is terminating its contract with the Trump Organization to host its 2002 championship at Trump's golf course in Bedminister, New Jersey.

"The PGA of America Board of Directors voted tonight to exercise the right to terminate the agreement to play the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster," said Jim Richerson, PGA of America president, in a statement.

Holding the tournament at Trump Bedminster, Richerson said, would be "detrimental" to the PGA of America's brand and put the organization's ability to function "at risk."

The predictable response by the Trump Organization: "This is a breach of a binding contract and they have no right to terminate the agreement. "

    He is having all his toys taken away. Twitter and Facebook, the golf tournament, Bill Belichick turns down the medal of freedom. MacDonald's calls go straight to voicemail.

    When Trump was elected, my then 96 y/o mother said that she planned to live long enough to see Trump get what is coming to him, so she will have a few years left to party.

    She's 100 now, got her wish.
