Donald Trump has been heckled on his own golf course as he sent a shot into the water, with the pranksters joking that his drive was ‘shorter than his second term’.
Jake Adams and his friends hurled remarks at the former president just metres behind him at the LIV Golf pro-am at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, New Jersey, last Thursday.
Footage shows Trump, wearing his signature MAGA hat, about to swing when Jake, 29, from Venice, Los Angeles, says: ‘You built a golf course just to miss this green.’
The former president surprisingly quips back by saying, ‘it isn’t an easy one to miss,’ before one of Jake’s pals interrupts his practice shots to say ‘that swing looks a little broken, was it made in China?’
The Republican then joins in on the banter again, saying ‘I don’t know – too much is made in China,’ before swinging back to take his shot.
Another of Jake’s group shouts ‘what would your followers say if you hit this left?’ during Trump’s swing.
When they realise the ball had landed in a pond short of the green, one jokes ‘a little short, like your second term,’ but Trump appears to shrug off the insults.
Jake says he wasn’t nervous to heckle the former president, despite security watching them, and he is pleased Trump was a ‘good sport’.
The group are part of the Country Club Adjacent podcast, and shared the clip to their TikTok page where it has been seen more than 10 million times since it was posted last Wednesday, with users praising the group’s ‘savage’ comments.
Jake said: ‘He played along, but when he went into the water I think he was upset and walked away. Eric came up to us afterwards and he was laughing.
‘It was good that he got involved and we don’t mind getting something back.
‘I’m sure he wanted to hit a good shot in front of us and then turn around and throw it in our faces. That would have been funny.
‘When we heard Trump would be there, we wrote a little bit of what we were going to say to him before.
‘I thought I’d be nervous, but I wasn’t. Luckily I knew one of the pro golfers in the group and he eased the tension for us.
‘He was a good sport and I have to say, he’s a pretty good golfer for his age. I’ll give him that.’
Jake and his friends are comedians based in Los Angeles, and were invited by LIV Golf to heckle pro-am players as part of their regular ‘back off challenge’ content.
