Samuel L. Jackson and Donald Trump go to war on social media: 'I'm gonna block his a**'
Samuel L. Jackson and Donald Trump are taking shots at each other over social media.
The whole thing started when Jackson shared a story during an interview about getting a bill from one of Trump’s golfing clubs, even though he hadn’t been to that club in years.
“But it’s funny — last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club,” he said. “And I haven’t been there in four or five years, so I had my assistant call. They said it was for membership dues. And I said, ‘I’m not a member,’ and they said, ‘Yeah, you are — you have a member number.’ Apparently he’d made me a member of one of his golf clubs, and I didn’t even know it!”
He also said that he was a better golfer than Trump “for sure” because “I don’t cheat.”
Trump then fired back at the actor on Twitter, saying that “to the best of my knowledge” he had never played golf with Jackson. He then criticized Jackson for being in “too many commercials” and called him “boring,” saying he was “not a fan.”
I don’t know @SamuelLJackson, to best of my knowledge haven't played golf w/him & think he does too many TV commercials—boring. Not a fan.

Jackson responded by posting the bill to his Instagram account and saying, “A bill from the guy that doesn’t know me & never golfed with me! I’m gonna Block his ass too!” The post has since been taken down, presumably because the bill showed private information.
Comedian Anthony Anderson also chimed in supporting Jackson’s claims.
“C’mon @realDonaldTrump you played Golf with @SamuelLJackson and me as well. we also had lunch together! shrimp and hot dogs. sound familiar?” Anderson wrote.
