It reveals a lot about a man.´ Reilly has been with Trump on the fairways, the greens and in the rough, he has seen how the President plays - and it´s not pretty. Based on his personal experiences, and interviews with dozens of golf pros, amateurs, developers, partners, opponents, and even caddies who have first-hand involvement with Trump out on the course, Reilly takes a deep and often hilarious look at how Trump shamelessly cheats at golf, lies about it, sues over it, bullies with it, and profits from it. ´Somebody should point out that the way Trump does golf is sort of the way he does a presidency, which is to operate as though the rules are for other people.´ From Trump´s ridiculous claim to have won eighteen club championships, to his devious cheating tricks, to his tainted reputation as a golf course tycoon, Commander in Cheat tells you everything you need to know about the man. ´You could write a book about what Trump´s golf reveals about him. Here it is.´
