Trump Boots Koch Brother and His Guests Off His West Palm Beach Golf Course

A Trump presidency looks to be a breath of fresh air after the dreary Obama administration that had depressing, corrupt, establishment politics written all over it. Unlike Obama who, sans teleprompter, just babbles during interviews — sort of like he’s trying to run out the clock before he has to say anything of significance — Trump just says it and lets the chips fall where they may.

So we have the entertaining spectacle of Mr. Trump booting one of the Koch brothers and his guest off his golf course. Recall that the two Koch brothers are billionaire financiers of all things “establishment” Republican. Hence they refused to support Trump. They are much more comfortable with the Bush family or a guy like Paul Ryan.

President-elect Donald Trump told a critical biographer and guest of billionaire David Koch to leave his West Palm Beach golf course on New Year’s Eve, forcing Koch to leave with him.

The Koch guest was author Harry Hurt III. And you can understand why Trump doesn’t like the guy.

Koch’s guest: Harry Hurt III, who authored the 1993 book, Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, which stated Ivana Trump accused her ex-husband of “raping” her in a sworn deposition during their divorce.

That’s obviously a very serious accusation. Turns out it wasn’t true, at least not according to Donald or Ivana.

Accusing Trump of “raping” his ex wife, Ivana Trump, was a false media accusation arising early in the Republican primaries—and a weapon the Democratic Party planned to use in the general election after Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and the Daily Beast “rushed it on air” and into print, using Hurt’s book, before bothering to check with Ivana about its truth.

It backfired spectacularly when Ivana slammed the allegations and endorsed her ex-husband for president. ““I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit,” she said in a July 2015 statement. “Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president.”

So much for the integrity of Hurt and the accuracy of his book.

But effectively ejecting a powerful, establishment, billionaire Republican from his club made another point that must not be missed:

Trump’s gesture was another slight against the pro-amnesty, pro-“free trade” billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, who opposed Trump during the Republican primary season and refused to help him during the general election. It also signals Trump will not necessarily play nice with the GOP political establishment and Beltway right.

Well, done.  Further evidence that Donald Trump is going to be his own man rather than being manipulated by power brokers in either party.

Plus, the idea of Trump giving those guys the boot is just plain funny.
