Trumps to spend Thanksgiving at White House instead of traveling to Florida

(The Hill) President Trump and first lady Melania Trump will not travel to Florida to spend Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago this year, marking a break with tradition for the first family as the president refuses to accept defeat in the 2020 election.

Stephanie Grisham, the chief of staff for the first lady, tweeted that Melania Trump and the president will celebrate Thanksgiving at the White House.

While the White House had not formally announced travel plans, the first family was expected to spend the holiday at the president's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach. The Trumps had spent each of the past three Thanksgiving holidays there.

But Trump has receded from public view in the two weeks since Election Day and after Joe Biden was projected as president-elect. Trump has made only a few public appearances in the time since, communicating largely through Twitter to spread false claims about the integrity of the vote.

36. I hope somebody inspects their baggage when they leave...

not that I don't trust the Trumps, but I don't trust the Trumps.

If they steal the Andrew Jackson portrait I'd be tempted to let them get away with it, though.

15. No,... The Butterball call in line says just defrost the turkey if frozen,...

... todays turkeys should not nor need they be cooked. Just slice off a big chunk and eat it raw. It is a lot more juicy that way.



Bon aperitif...

30. Well the marinate should be 1/2 bleach & 1/2 Lysol,....

The Lysol gives the skin that darkish golden color and the Lysol also darkens the pan drippings which enhances the final coloration of the home made turkey gravy.

Bon aperitif,...

8. What's The Old Adage About Occupancy?......

Trump being in the Real Estate business probably thinks he can use this in his quest to remain president:

Possession is nine-tenths of the law is an expression meaning that ownership is easier to maintain if one has possession of something, or difficult to enforce if one does not.

Although the principle is an oversimplification, it can be restated as: "In a property dispute (whether real or personal), in the absence of clear and compelling testimony or documentation to the contrary, the person in actual, custodial possession of the property is presumed to be the rightful owner. (credit Wikipedia)

16. It's taken almost 2 weeks, but I do think he's starting to realize that bullshit

won't make a 2nd term come true. He will never be able to be the public person he was before he fell into the Presidency. He may do some rallies, but I suspect that fewer and fewer people will want to associate with the Loser.

He can do it the easy way and get one last ride on Marine 1, or he can choose what’s behind the curtain.

43. What's he afraid of?

As much as I loathe him, he's still president until 1/20/21 at noon and entitled to live in the White House: what's he afraid of? Does he think the staff won't let him back in if he leaves? Does he think he's going to get booed if he goes to Florida? Does he think that having a snit in the White House makes him seem more presidential?

Maybe he just wants to stay and help Mel with the f(&%*#g Christmas decorations!
