Your Saturday Morning Bottomless Grift is Served

"And now, I'm going to Florida."

“And now, I’m going to Florida.”

Hard-worker, Hair Füehrer likes to take weekends off and go to Florida, play a little golf, fly Melania down for some slap-and-tickle, you know all the stuff that he accused The Kenyan Usurper of doing. Best part. He’s making money, tiny hand over fist:

“On any given weekend, you might catch President Trump’s son-in-law and top Mideast dealmaker, Jared Kushner, by the beachside soft-serve ice cream machine, or his reclusive chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, on the dining patio. If you are lucky, the president himself could stop by your table for a quick chat. But you will have to pay $200,000 for the privilege – and the few available spots are going fast. Virtually overnight, Mar-a-Lago, Mr. Trump’s members-only Palm Beach, Fla., club, has been transformed into the part-time capital of American government, a so-called winter White House where Mr. Trump has entertained a foreign head of state, health care industry executives and other presidential guests. But Mr. Trump’s gatherings at Mar-a-Lago … have also created an arena for potential political influence rarely seen in American history: A kind of Washington steakhouse on steroids, situated in a sunny playground of the rich and powerful, where members and their guests enjoy a level of access that could elude even the best-connected of Washington lobbyists.

“Membership lists reviewed by The New York Times show that the club’s nearly 500 paying members include dozens of real estate developers, Wall Street financiers, energy executives and others whose businesses could be affected by Mr. Trump’s policies. … Mr. Trump’s weekend White House appears to be unprecedented in American history, as it is the first one with customers paying a company owned by the president, several historians said. … Bernd Lembcke, the club’s managing director, said that applications had risen since Mr. Trump’s election. ‘It enhances it – his presidency does,’ Mr. Lembcke said, referring to membership in the club. ‘People are now even more interested in becoming members. But we are very careful in vetting them.’ And potential members must be sponsored by a current one, he said. ‘You still have to be introduced.'”

This is not normal. Don’t let this become normal.

      Yeah, the rubes will never even notice the Everglades is gone if they replace it with their own swamp. Check out the Longacres land swap in Renton and Auburn, Washington. Went great!
