LPGA golfer Lexi Thompson played with President Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh recently and pictures ended up online. Predictably, the comments quickly turned contentious. The discourse is nothing if not always on fire.
She’s far from the first big-name golfer to whack some balls with the leader of the free world and she won’t be the last. Tiger Woods played with him before his Masters win. But Thompson made the unprecedented decision of stepping away from social media after the backlash.

Hey everybody, just want to say I will be taking a break from social media. If I post it will be from my management team for me. I’m too involved with it, and to read some of the hurtful things being said to me lately isn’t fair and I’m not dealing with it. Thank you to my true fans out there I will be back on but I’m going to be focusing on me right now and my life. Thanks for understanding. ❤️
Not her problem anymore. It’s now her management team’s problem.
Would you believe that the thousands of comments on her announcement that she’s cleansing herself of social media are just as political and contentious as the ones that caused her to do so?
If not, I am deeply jealous of your online sanity.
