Obama’s 2 weekend milestones are all fun and games, for Obama anyway

Ever so conscious of his legacy in presidential annals, President Barack Obama set two milestones over the weekend.

And neither involved real work.

CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller took to social media to point out that Obama played his 250th round of golf since being elected to office, and attended his 443rd fundraiser.

Knoller opted to put things into a more favorable perspective for the president by comparing the number of times Obama has golfed with that of some of his predecessors — over half a century ago. Interestingly, Knoller also shared how many times Obama’s immediate predecessor, George W. Bush, played golf:

Milestone or not, social media users were not all that impressed, with one user wondering how bad off the country would be if Obama “actually worked.”

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
