While guest-hosting on MSNBC’s “Ronan Farrow Daily” on Tuesday, NBC News Foreign Correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin dubbed President Obama “golfer-in-chief” with a graphic reading “wedding crasher-in-chief” behind him during a story on President Obama’s golf game forcing the relocation two soldiers’ wedding.
“Say you’re just about to have your wedding it’s a dream location, the caterer’s booked and you are all ready, when you are told your location chosen for this event is no longer available. Why? Because the president, or in this case the golfer in chief decided to play golf there. That’s what happened to one couple over the weekend who had planned their wedding at a golf course in Hawaii” he stated.
The report by Senior White House Correspondent Chris Jansing did say that the incident “turned out well,” and the couple did say that the incident was a “blessing in disguise” and said they believed Obama didn’t know he was forcing the couple to move. According to Jansing, the couple also thought the view from the new location was nicer than the one they had originally picked.
