Subject: In-town pool #8 -- Flagging a video clip

The Hill has tweeted a 45-second video clip that it reports is footage of the president playing golf today.

It appears to have been shot at a distance, from the Maryland side of the Potomac River, and shows eight golf carts together on what seems to be the Riverview course. (Trump national has two 18-hole courses.)

The White House often doesn’t confirm at all that the president is playing golf, even when they disclose that he’s at one of his golf properties. But this video would fit with the density of Secret Service coverage seen on previous outings. (No one needs that many caddies.)

It’s difficult to pick out the president in the grainy video. One man appears to be wearing a red baseball cap, but others in the video seem closer to Trump’s physical size.

No other news to report as 2:00 p.m. draws near.
