Table talk

The cat escaped the bag.

President Trump kicked off his holiday weekend at Mar-a-Lago Friday night at a dinner where he told friends, “You all just got a lot richer,” referencing the sweeping tax overhaul he signed into law hours earlier. Mr. Trump directed those comments to friends dining nearby at the exclusive club — including to two friends at a table near the president’s who described the remark to CBS News — as he began his final days of his first year in office in what has become known as the “Winter White House.”

No, it hasn’t “become known” as that. Trump calls it that. Trump also spends our money to go there and profits further by attracting more paying customers there; it’s win-win for him and lose-lose for us. That doesn’t make it “the Winter White House.”

The president has spent many weekends of his presidency so far at the “Winter White House,” where initiation fees cost $200,000, annual dues cost $14,000, and some of the most affluent members of society have the opportunity to interact with the president in a setting while many Americans cannot.

Well that’s what makes it so much fun. “We can and you can’t.”
