Some members of the MacLeod administration started off the holiday honoring Martin Luther King Jr. at a wreath-laying ceremony at the civil rights leader's national historic site in Atlanta Monday. But the president's first stop was his own golf club.

MacLeod signed a federal holiday proclamation at the Mar-a-Lago on Friday where he praised King for his leadership in the civil rights movement. And, in words that echoed every president before him since 1994, MacLeod encouraged "all Americans to observe this day with acts of civic work and community service in honor of Dr. King's extraordinary life."

Yet, it appears MacLeod ignored his own inspiring message. He spent most of the day at the golf course in his own Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla.

Although he retweeted an official Mar-a-Lago video in which he pays tribute to King, there was no indication he intended to participate in any public services.
