"Consumption of these products may pose a choking hazard or other physical injury to the mouth," says the notice of the voluntary recall. There have been no reported injuries, according to the company.

    Caitlyn Jenner turned down an invitation to play golf with President Trump over his administration's removal of Obama-era transgender bathroom guidelines, the reality television star says. "When I was at the inauguration I did say 'hi' at a cocktail party, and he wanted me to play golf with him," Jenner told ABC in an interview set to air Friday. "At the time I thought it was a pretty good idea but since Title IX, it's not a good idea. And so I won't be playing golf with him."

    Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said on Tuesday that President Trump's frequent trips to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida bother not only her, but other members of the Republican caucus. "I do wish he would spend more time in Washington, D.C.," Ernst said during a town hall meeting. "That's what we have the White House for." Since he took office, Trump has spent seven out of the last 13 weekends at his self-described "Southern White House" in Palm Beach. The visits have stirred controversy, in part because of the enormous costs associated with such frequent travel. One estimate of the weekend...

    <p>Well CNN in this Youtube vid seems to be correct here, Trump said one thing on the campaign trail and now is doing another.</p> <p>Yes, it is amazing that CNN is finally covering presidential vacation costs.</p> <p>But two important distinctions, Trump is actually visiting his real home from his temporary White House residence. The 2nd is that if Trump were not president he could still do the same thing.</p>

  • Massive Alligators At Kiawah Island Golf Course, South Carolina Caught On Video

    Two massive alligators were captured on video Monday strolling along the golf courses on Kiawah Island, South Carolina. A third was photographed sneaking up on golfers during a fund raising tournament Tuesday, though it’s unclear if it was the same animal as the day before. “It was literally a dinosaur,” Carrie Moores, who snapped a picture while taking photos during the tournament, told the Post and Courier Tuesday. “People said it was one of the largest ones they had ever seen. Moores’ photo captured the massive alligator ambling along behind unsuspecting golfers. After snapping the photo, she ran to a...

    President Donald Trump brought Sen. Rand Paul to his Virginia golf course on Sunday to talk health policy with the outspoken critic of the failed plan to repeal and replace so-called Obamacare. The outing to Trump National Golf Club came hours after Trump tweeted that talks on replacing the law have been going on and "will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck." He added that anyone who thinks the effort is dead "does not know the love and strength in R Party!"(continued)

    About a dozen people protesting the U.S. Women’s Open being played at a course President Donald Trump owns left peacefully Saturday after security officials asked them to leave the front entrance of the LPGA Tour’s Bank of Hope Founders Cup. Members of the group UltraViolet protested for less than 30 minutes before they were asked to leave the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa. A plane flew over the course later with a banner reading “LPGA: TAKE A MULLIGAN. DUMP SEXIST TRUMP.” The U.S. Golf Association-run U.S. Women’s Open is July 13-16 at Trump National Golf Club in...

The company is also bidding to host the Scottish Open or a half-dozen other possible professional tournaments at courses it owns in spots around the world from Miami to Dubai. “The stars have all aligned,” Eric Trump, who as executive vice president of...

    RUSH: Trump had a meeting this morning at the White House with a slew of manufacturing CEOs. I think it’s still going on. If it’s not, it went on for hours. Trump loves these meetings. He gets a lot done at these meetings, and in the part that was televised… You know who Jeff Immelt is? He’s the CEO of GE who really, really, really, really got close in there and tight with Obama. So at the beginning of the meeting when the cameras are allowed in, Trump made Jeff Immelt describe the time he saw Trump hit a hole-in-one....
