"Base toe. ABC is Karen Travers, our White House correspondent. Is President Trump plays golf, carrots. It's unmistakable. He has to know that these results were coming and decided not to not to be there because he is an avid Consumer of the news. Absolutely. I mean, he's not out there on the golf course you know, leaving his phone back in the clubhouse so he can enjoy some nice, quiet time in nature for a couple of hours. Now, he constantly is tweeting over the past four years while we think he's golfing tweeting while he's at the clubhouse s O. I think we fully expect that the president knows what's happening. But I think it is also notable that he is presumably in a place where he's not glued to his TV right now, because the images that you're seeing on cable television of celebrations in cities all across the country, I mean, even if he was in his own home right now at the White House, it's incredibly loud down there in downtown D.
