Walking termite buffett Mike Pence spent the weekend acting on Prznint Stupid’s behalf in Poland (while the prznint played golf), and then acted like the Prznint in Ireland: yes, he stayed at one of Comrade Stupid’s golf courses because: no one knows.
The hall monitors at Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Chalie!) morning email thingie has the hot dish:
“FROM COSTA’S MORNING POOL REPORT: “VPOTUS and family spent Monday night at Trump International Golf Links & Hotel in Doonbeg, Ireland. The traveling press and several VPOTUS staffers stayed at the Radisson Blu hotel in Limerick. It was a 20-minute drive to the airport this morning for the press corps; about an hour for VPOTUS’s motorcade.”
“MARC SHORT spoke to the pool, via Costa: “Q9: Did President Trump ask Vice President Pence to stay at the property?
SHORT: ‘I don’t think it was a request, like a command, Bob. I think that it was a suggestion.’
“Q10: What does that mean?
SHORT: ‘It’s like when we went through the trip, it’s like, well, he’s going to Doonbeg because that’s where the Pence family is from. It’s like, “Well, you should stay at my place.”’
“Q11: So the president did offer it? We should say that?
SHORT: ‘In that sort of a way, Catherine. It wasn’t like a, ‘You must.’ It wasn’t like, ‘You have to.’ It’s a facility that could accommodate the team. Keep in mind, the Secret Service has protected that facility for him, too, so they sort of know the realities, they know the logistics around that facility.’
“Q12: Is there any cost estimate?
SHORT: ‘I’m sure there is, Catherine. I don’t have that right now. We’ll have that later.’”
Let’s emphasize this: Comrade Trump’s Doonberg joint where Pence and Mother spent the night is an hour motorcade away from the airport, not 20 minutes like where the press stayed. I’m not sure from the report that it was NOT Pznint McGrifter demanding payment or if it was the ass-kissing idea of the Walking Termite Buffett to do this (remember him fleeing from the NFL Game with Mother Pence in tow when the players took a knee?), but either way you and I are picking up the tab.
UPDATE 1: Mike Pence loves Comrade Stupid’s Doonbeg on Yelp:
.@VP Pence in Ireland: "If you have a chance to get to Doonbeg you'll find it's a fairly small place, the opportunity to stay at Trump National in Doonbeg, to accommodate the unique footprint that comes with our security detail and other personnel made it logical." pic.twitter.com/yqOSjKt9M3

You would think the opposition party would have a field day with a president cancelling a trip to commemorate WWII so he could monitor a hurricane only to then be spotted playing golf two days in a row at his personal club. But I can’t even recall seeing one Dem take a whack

Oh, and speaking of the Prznint, Poland, and Dorian:
"Congratulations on your Nazi Invasion” — just has a nice ring to it, said NO ONE EVER UNTIL NOW.
