USA Today is touting a report out this morning that “ID’ed 4500 Trump golf-club members through” their social media accounts as well as an online service that lets golfers track their handicaps:

Do they not see how awful this looks?

USA Today doxxed members of Trump's golf courses.

Class action, anyone?

And if you belong to a country club, you probably have money for a lawyer.

Hell no - they think they've done a tremendous thing for humanity.

Wow, the Lefturds endlessly railed against “McCarthyism” when there were tons of actual communist spies and infiltrators to deal with, yet they can go all scorched earth on innocent individuals, business, golf club members, etc. merely for any commercial interaction with the Trump world.

Why don’t they just riot like most Democrats?

I can’t imagine that anyone who is a member at one of Trump’s golf courses really gives a damn what anyone thinks.

If I worked for Trump’s business management team, I’d immediately send out a mailer to all members asking them to meticulously document any and all communication, threats, harassment, property damage, and confrontations that may be related to their information being published.

...and then, yes, a class action lawsuit should be sought toward the case that the publishing of private personal information to the public was intended to inflict harm to these people.

It’s tacky and so like democrats - but I doubt there is anything illegal about printing public records.

I guess one question is whether the records are “public” or not.

Took USA 5 reports to write the story.

Remember how well it went for CNN after they doxed a private individual for creating an animated gif that mocked them? USA Today is likely going to experience more of the same.

I’m sure 4chan is on the case.

Even with the confirmation of KGB activities and espionage the Left pretends that the US Communists never engaged in treason or sedition.

Will USA Today pay for the Forearm Tattoos these People will be forced to get?

How about the Yellow “T” Patch that they will be forced to sew on to their Clothing?

Turns out they got these names from information these members posted in various accessible places (like Facebook pages) on their own.

It would be hilarious of any of the names on this list were not members at all. LOL.

>>>an online service that lets golfers track their handicaps<<<

It would depend on whether this is a subscription service or not.

Gee, will anyone ask why they decided to do this?

How does releasing these names improve Public discourse?

Do they know that Bill Clinton was a Member of a Trump Golf Club? He was.

"I can’t imagine that anyone who is a member at one of Trump’s golf courses really gives a damn what anyone thinks."

Because AntiFa will show up on the public sidewalks outside their homes. They'll curse wives calling them whores. They'll threaten and insult children of the members. Feces or urine will be thrown. Things of that nature.

That's why the members should and will care.

People that post on places like Facebook are giving up their privacy and often reveal things that only a thief would appreciate. Like, we’ll be gone this weekend - our house will be empty and ripe for the pickings.

Since these members are probably in control of hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising, I suspect USA Today will soon be running generic boner pill ads, miracle toe fungus cures, and gold IRA ads, just before they get sold for a dollar to some foreign billionaire.

Then let them deal with that. That’s between them and the mutants outside their homes.
