Trump is reportedly crashing memorial services, living large 'like Napoleon at Elba'

"By all accounts," Joshua Green reports at Bloomberg, former President Donald Trump's post–White House life in Southern Florida "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."

Trump isn't just holding court at Mar-a-Lago, which he's transformed into the new center of gravity for the Republican Party, Green writes. He's also created "his own economy, providing livelihoods for his former aides," who in turn "trumpet his gospel of stolen elections and Democratic conspiracies."

"As Comic-Con does for actors past their prime, South Florida offers hardcore Trump fans a way to indulge their nostalgia and fawn over their favorite characters from the extended Trump Universe," Green reports. And Trump himself is constantly "bathed in adulation. When he enters the dining room, people stand and applaud. When he returns from golf, he's met with squeals and selfie requests. When he leaves Mar-a-Lago, he often encounters flag-waving throngs."

Inside Mar-a-Lago, Trump will "show up for anything," Green adds. "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."

Some Trump courtiers have moved to the Palm Beach area because they want to — Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Neil Cavuto recently bought homes near Mar-a-Lago. Others, like former White House staffers who have been unable to get jobs after the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, "have nowhere else to go," former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg told Bloomberg. "What else are they going to do?"

There are also signs the Trump adulation may not extend too far beyond the "Trump Coast," however. The name "Donald" fell 55 places on the Social Security Administration's 2020 list of popular baby names, coming in at a record-low 610th place, below Axton, Dariel, Marvin, and Brycen.

The presidential D-list leader, Donald J. Trump. Soon you’ll be able to hire him for birthday parties. $250 per hour, just what his wife used to charge when he met her.

Who the hell is Napoleon, and what the fuck is wrong with his elbow? I don't know what this fake news is even talking about!

Imagine him interrupting the funeral lunch: “He was a beautiful person, and was loved deeply by many!” “YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW HIM, AND NO HE DIDN’T VOTE FOR YOU!” “In that case, second rate loser. Glad he’s finished! Terrible person!”

Lol R5.

You nailed it!

They’ve all had to get sidelines. For $100,000 you can have your hateful old granddad’s wake at Mar-A-Lago and have the ability to boast that the Once and Future President Trump had spoken at the service.

Shit, it’s a better gig than most of them got. Look at the political section of Cameo, it’s at least 75% Trump-world figures, including Don Jr. and his “Puerto Rican Pit Bull” Kim G..

This is the Trump version of a "Presidential Speaking Engagement."

Most former presidents do speeches for $100,000.

However, they do it for serious policy, legacy, and historical reasons, and not COMMERCIAL.

He's fucking trash.

It's a great area. When you get tired of MarALago you can go out for Chinese, Cuban, Soul Food or just plain ole American, great girls all of them; some of them on the young side.

“recently attended a club gathering for a deceased friend was surprised when Trump sauntered in”

And Trump announced “I am counting on this dead person’s vote for me and other Republicans in the future. I called “Voting Rights for the Reposed”
