Why Did Krauthammer Compare Media Attention on Obama's Golf Habits to Kim Kardashian Wedding?

On last night's O'Reilly Factor, syndicated columnist and political analyst Charles Krauthammer gave Bill his take on the "controversy" surrounding President Obama's golf game. In particular, the president has come under fire by some in the media for tee-ing off with Tiger Woods, and not allowing media access to his leisure activities. Krauthammer, for one, could care less about what takes place on the green.

"The guy wants to play golf? He deserves a couple of days off," he told O'Reilly. "This is the biggest non-story the media has created since the Kardashian wedding. He's got a long way to go before he plays half as much golf as Eisenhower. [...] I don't understand what the story is and what the outrage is."

But he doesn't even care about the press being banned from such outings ... and with a celebrity whose personal life has been less than impeccable over the past few years? "Absolutely not," he said.

"I don't think Obama's out there with Tiger receiving marital advice. I think he's out there receiving advice on how to line up a put."
