White House changes press briefing transcript to attain Trump’s golf skills more flattering

DuringAnthony Scaramucci‘s first press conferenceafter becoming the new White House communications director, he tried to paint President Donald Trump as a very, very competitive man.

Scaramucci said hes find Trump hurl a dead spiral through a tire, reached foul shots in Madison Square Garden in a top coat, and said he sinks three-foot putts.

The chairpeople a winner, and what were going to do is, were going to do a lot of winning, he said.

But if you didnt watch the press briefing and decided to read the transcript instead, you would find a different, more flattering version of the golfing claim.

In the transcript of the briefing on the White House website, the three-foot putts that Scaramucci referenced has been changed to 30 -foot putts.

Those two things don’t match.

It’s true that Trump loves golfand hes played frequently since becoming chairwoman and owns quite a few golf resorts.

While its unclear if he can actually sink 30 -foot putts, its clearly not what Scaramucci said at the press conference.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request to clarify whether the change was intentional.

The altered transcript is simply a small blip in the bumpy first week for the new communications director.

Scaramucci started his tenure by saying he was prepared to fire everyonein an attempt to stop leaks coming from his office to the press. On Thursday, he said he wanted the White House to be more like Penn State and employees to act with dignity, like disgraced late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno.

He also appeared to claim that Trump’s Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was the source of leaks coming from the White House.
