Donald Trump calls Samuel L. Jackson 'boring' after golf comments
Donald Trump’s latest target? Samuel L. Jackson.
In an article from United Airlines’ Hemisphere magazine, Jackson was asked if he was a better golfer than the Republican presidential candidate frontrunner. “Oh, I am, for sure. I don’t cheat,” Jackson said.
Naturally, Trump took to Twitter to defend himself. “I don’t know Samuel L. Jackson, to best of my knowledge haven’t played golf with him, and think he does too many TV commercials — boring,” Trump wrote. “Not a fan.”
Jackson apparently doesn’t know Trump to the best of his knowledge, either — the actor told the magazine that aside from golfing he wasn’t friendly with the candidate. But according to Jackson, that didn’t stop the Trump from making him a member of his club… without Jackson’s knowledge.
“Last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club,” Jackson told the magazine. “And I haven’t been there in four or five years, so I had my assistant call. They said it was for membership dues. And I said, ‘I’m not a member,’ and they said, ‘Yeah, you are — you have a member number.’ Apparently he’d made me a member of one of his golf clubs, and I didn’t even know it!”
