To Call For The Wild is To Be Really Good Like Me
President Donald Trump will leave Washington in disgrace next week, destined for a warmer welcome in Florida, where some supporters are so gung-ho they recently wrote his name on the back of a fat, lumbering manatee.
Days after suffering the ignominy of a second impeachment, Trump will skip his successor Joe Biden’s inauguration and depart early Wednesday for his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Apparently, he plans to live there.
Last month people in Palm Beach sent the city council a letter recalling that under a 1993 agreement, Mar-a-Lago was not zoned as a full-time residence.
That letter, published by The Washington Post, states that use of the living quarters at the golf resort “shall be limited to a maximum of three (3) non-consecutive seven (7) day periods by any one member during the year.”
The resort denies that the 1993 accord contains this restriction.
The Post noted that the president already spends large amounts of time at the resort in violation of this rule, and he is expected to put up a fight against those who do not want him around.
But that’s only the beginning of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago woes.
This week Palm Beach County officials issued the resort a warning over a New Year’s Eve party at which guests did not wear masks or observe social distancing rules.
Trump’s son Don Jr had posted a video of the festivities showing people dancing to 1989 hit “Ice Ice Baby” by the rapper Vanilla Ice, who performed live.
