Trump Has Reportedly Been Crashing Mar-a-Lago Memorial Services Because Of Course He Has
Not surprisingly, he apparently also overstays his welcome.
By Bess Levin
June 10, 2021


What is Donald Trump up to these days? Oh, not much, just reportedly telling people he’s going to be president again by August, crashing weddings, and according to a new report from Bloomberg BusinessWeek, dropping in on memorial services and having a weirdly good time for an event honoring a dead person:

He’ll show up to anything. In recent weeks, Trump has popped into engagement parties and memorial services. A Mar-a-Lago member who recently attended a club gathering for a deceased friend was surprised when Trump sauntered in to deliver remarks and then hung around, apparently enjoying himself. This insular feedback loop, amplified by the worshipful validation he gets for doing Newsmax or OAN TV hits, doesn’t appear likely to diminish as he settles into his New Jersey golf club for the summer and prepares to resume his trademark rallies. “Donald Trump needs the adulation of the crowd the way you or I need oxygen to breathe,” says Michael Cohen, his estranged former lawyer. By all accounts, Trump’s life after the White House doesn’t resemble that of a typical ex-president so much as a foreign monarch cast into exile—like Napoleon at Elba, but with golf and a bigger buffet.


Yes, it’s strange and morbid and the odds are high he’s offended at least a few people in mourning. (“People loved Jack though they couldn’t have loved his as much as me, your favorite president,” he’s no doubt said as the deceased’s widow sobs. “Heard he was a great guy though I never met him so I can’t say, but people said it. Would have been really broken up about what Democrats did to me I’m sure. Bet he wishes he was here to see me speaking at his funeral. Lot of nice looking ladies here that’s for sure, wonder why I wasn’t invited to any family functions before this, will have to look into that.”) Still, the dead are probably less annoyed by his uninvited presence than, say, a bride whose wedding has been hijacked by the incoherent rambling of a man who thinks it’s normal to commemorate someone’s nuptials with a speech that includes the lines, “Y’know, I just got, I turned off the news, I get all these flash reports, and they’re telling me about the border, they’re telling me about China, they’re telling me about Iran—how’re we doing with Iran, howdya like that. Boy, they were ready to make a deal, they woulda done anything, they woulda done anything, and this guy goes and drops the sanctions and then he says, ‘We’d love to negotiate now,’ [and Iran says], ‘We’re not dealing with the United States at all,’ oh, well, they don’t want to deal with us.” Which, yes, is a thing that actually happened.

On the other hand, whatever keeps his mind off of trying for another coup is arguably a good thing, though when he crashes his first bris and tries to do the mohel’s job, someone should probably say something.

1. If you schedule an event at Perv-a-Lardo you know exactly what you're getting into, and

you deserve it when you get it.

2. Why are people holding memorials there in the first place ?

The only reason I can think of for doing that is they are supporters of his.

The baby at every christening.

The bride at every wedding.

And the corpse at every funeral.

You hold a memorial at Disneyland, don't be surprised when Donald Duck has something to say.

10. My guess is, the only reason you would hold Any event there would be in hopes of

trump crashing your event. These people who book there, are as sick as trump.

12. Beats staring at fabric swatches.



Trump is a moron fixated by fabric swatches.

Trump, the billion-dollar loser — I was his ghostwriter and saw it happen


Charles Leerhson
Yahoo.com, May 9, 2019

EXCERPT...

I tend to see my time with him — the first part of it, anyway, before things started going bad in a hurry — as his “King Midas” period. I never said this to him; if I had, he probably would have thought I was suggesting he enter the muffler business. But there was a stretch of months when everything he touched turned into a deal. The banks seemed to accept the version of him depicted in his first book, “The Art of the Deal,” which we now know from his previous ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz, was entirely invented. They believed it over what they saw on his balance sheets or heard coming out of his mouth, and they never said no to his requests for more money. Often they came up with things he could say yes to before he could think of them himself. As a result, a failing real estate developer who had little idea of what he was doing and less interest in doing it once he’d held the all-important press conference wound up owning three New Jersey hotel-casinos, the Plaza Hotel, the Eastern Airlines Shuttle and a 281-foot yacht.

A real go-getter, right? But Trump’s portfolio did not jibe with what I saw each day — which to a surprisingly large extent was him looking at fabric swatches. Indeed, flipping through fabric swatches seemed at times to be his main occupation. Some days he would do it for hours, then take me in what he always called his “French military helicopter” to Atlantic City — where he looked at more fabric swatches or sometimes small samples of wood paneling. It was true that the carpets and drapes at his properties needed to be refreshed frequently, and the seats on the renamed Trump Shuttle required occasional reupholstering. But the main thing about fabric swatches was that they were within his comfort zone — whereas, for example, the management of hotels and airlines clearly wasn’t. One of his aides once told me that every room at the Plaza could be filled at the “rack rate” (list price) every night, and the revenue still wouldn’t cover the monthly payment of the loan he’d taken out to buy the place. In other words, he’d made a ridiculous deal. Neither he nor the banks had done the math beforehand. Or perhaps Trump knew it because someone had told him, but didn’t want to think about it. The one thing he is above-average at is compartmentalization.

How has this pathetic loser kept up the facade of being a brilliant, savvy businessman for so long when precisely the opposite was true.

I could see it if he was really intelligent and sophisticated, but this idiot is such a complete zero I am amazed that he has been able to pull it off for as long as he has and all the while dodging the law.

17. He made eavesdropping so lucrative.

As he is too smart to leave a paper trail or too stupid to write, the pro smear artistes make money every way from Trumpday just knowing the people around him.

15. Serves them right. "Trump eulogies" were even a thing on the internet

a couple of years ago. Who but a Satan-worshipper would have a memorial service at that cursed place?

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.newsweek.com/trump-eulogies-trends-george-conway-funeral-1452185%3famp=1

"The hashtag #TrumpEulogies was trending on Twitter on Thursday after George Conway, a vocal critic of the president and Kellyanne Conway's husband, brought up a time when Trump praised himself at his own father's funeral, among other instances.

"On June 29th, 1999, Trump gave a eulogy at his father's funeral .... [Trump] used the time to talk about his own accomplishments and to make it clear that, in his mind, his father's best achievement was producing him, Donald," tweeted Conway, quoting from a 2017 Rolling Stone story and adding #TrumpEulogies."...(more)

24. Trump has gotten even fatter and flabbier

That's what happens when you spend your time riding in golf carts and crashing buffets.

But that's also what happens when you're angry and depressed.
