(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – In a direct verbal assault on the Pro Golf Association (PGA) golfers who have decided to accept multi-million dollar deals from the new Saudi-backed LIV Golf tour, United States Representative Chip Roy, a Texas Republican, has branded them as “whores and has-beens” willing to take huge sums in “blood money.”
As recounted by the Washington Examiner in “‘Whores and has-beens’: GOP Rep. Chip Roy blasts golfers in Saudi-backed event”:
“A number of high-profile PGA stars have been lured by tournament purses in the $25 million range, with the golfers being paid millions more to join the league. That includes Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Graeme McDowell, Phil Mickelson, Kevin Na, Ian Poulter, Patrick Reed, and Lee Westwood.”
Roy explained himself further:
“‘I’m fine with competition, but it has to be an economic model that’s legit and not being bankrolled by a bunch of Saudis,’ Roy told the Washington Examiner in an interview. ‘We’ve got the president of the United States going over and kissing the Saudis’ a** trying to get oil because we’ve got completely screwed up oil and gas, energy policy in this country.’” [emphasis added]
