8 things we learned from these photos of President Obama playing golf with President Clinton

Donald Trump caused his latest stir during an eventful campaign by releasing a video that claimed President Obama is playing golf "while the world burns." We're not quite sure what to make of that statement, but we're certain Obama and former President Bill Clinton played golf together on Saturday morning at Farm Neck Golf Club in Martha's Vineyard. Here are eight things we learned from photos of this power pairing, who played alongside civil rights activist Vernon Jordan and former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk:
