For my money the funniest part of this NBC News report about Trump losing money on his golf club in Scotland is that it’s about 8 minutes long and they wait until the last 15 seconds to point out that golf course owners rarely profit from their properties. But whatever it takes to help the Democrats keep life in their Russia narrative:
“Sinkholes of money.” Trump’s Scotland property cost more than $50 million in 2014. He bought it even though it was losing money. Since then, he’s spent more than $85 million on renovations – but the resort continues to lose millions of dollars each year. pic.twitter.com/qtfAyFXA79

That story — the entire thing — is based on one golf writer’s claim four years ago that Eric Trump told him the family gets from Russia some of the money for courses they buy, which Trump has denied.
Top Dem “Russia collusion” conspiracy theorist Rep. Adam Schiff picked up on NBC’s report quickly, of course:
Before meeting Putin, the President will play golf at his course in Scotland, which he paid for with millions in cash. Where did the cash come from? His son, Eric, has said they get all the money they need from Russia.

If not standing up to Putin means you’re receiving $$ from Russia, how much did Obama get?
