New Quoting another nefarious President*..
"Mr. Gorbachev Biden: Tear. down. this. Wall!

That is all.
New the Mar-á-Iago* neighbors lawyer up
* (that's for The Bard's friends: Mar-á-IAGO ..another creature via deadly-gossip)
WaPo


Next-door neighbors of Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Fla., that he has called his Winter White House, have a message for the outgoing commander in chief: We don’t want you to be our neighbor.

That message was formally conveyed Tuesday morning in a demand letter delivered to the town of Palm Beach and also addressed to the U.S. Secret Service asserting that Trump lost his legal right to live at Mar-a-Lago because of an agreement he signed in the early 1990s when he converted the storied estate from his private residence to a private club. The legal maneuver could, at long last, force Palm Beach to publicly address whether Trump can make Mar-a-Lago his legal residence and home, as he has been expected to do when he becomes an ex-president after the swearing-in of Joe Biden on Jan. 20.

The contretemps sets up a potentially awkward scenario, unique in recent history, in which a former Oval Office occupant would find himself having to officially defend his choice of a place to live during his post-presidency. It also could create a legal headache for Trump because he changed his official domicile to Mar-a-Lago, leaving behind Manhattan, where he lived before being elected president and before his fame as a brash, self-promoting developer. (Trump originally tried to register to vote in Florida using the White House in Washington as his address, which is not allowed under Florida law. He later changed the registration to the Mar-a-Lago address.)

New Finally a fair fight
Trump going up against a bunch of rich old white people who don't want to see their property values go down because someone let the wrong element move in. Perfection.

New Yup.
I don't see how he can win this argument, but lawyers can argue about anything.

But even if he loses, I don't see that it would be a big problem for him. He owns at least one golf course there, and Javanka just spent $31M on 2 acres of land on some "exclusive island" so he could easily move in with them. It's not like he's going to have to buy a condo in Orlando or something.

Assuming, of course, that Letitia James and the other NY prosecutors don't drag him off to jail there while he awaits trial...

We'll see.

Cheers,
Scott.
New Javanka's pad won't be built for at least several months
So he'll need a place to crash until then.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

New Quote from one of the people raising the fuss
Palm Beach has many lovely estates for sale. I'm sure he could find one that would fit his needs.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Big problem for him?
He registered to vote from there. He's contractually not allowed to live there. He voted (by mail) in Florida (where he doesn't live). There WAS mail voting fraud in Florida!! And Trump did it! With cameras rolling!
That's not a problem?

New Nice! ..but in a post-Rational zeitgeist ... he shall self-exonerate, right?
New Not sure about that.
I'm pretty sure (not positive) that voting residency is a state level issue; Trump has no pardoning power over state level crimes. I wasn't being snarky about fatso voting illegally; he gave his commercial property as his address instead of Washington or New York. He is contractually not allowed to reside there. I'm wondering if the Florida legislature/government will uphold their own laws or just look the other way. Should be interesting to watch.
