Trump's Mar-a-Lago New Year's Eve party violated mask order, county officials say

  Trump's Mar-a-Lago New Year's Eve party violated mask order, county officials say Palm Beach County officials in Florida this week said President Trump's New Year's Eve party at his private Mar-a-Lago club violated a local mask order implemented amid the coronavirus pandemic. In a notice sent to Mar-a-Lago on Tuesday, Richard Padgett, a code enforcement officer with the county's COVID Enforcement and Education Team, informed the club that in footage and pictures posted to social media from the party, several attendees "wereIn a notice sent to Mar-a-Lago on Tuesday, Richard Padgett, a code enforcement officer with the county's COVID Enforcement and Education Team, informed the club that in footage and pictures posted to social media from the party, several attendees "were observed without faci

I mean, I guess it would require the FL government to take action which if anything they'd probably arrest the person filing the complaint instead of Trump , but still. When I was a child I played with childish things; but when I became a man, I put away childish things, and now play with adult toys.

Nothing would please me more then for Trump to be homeless, but even if he ends up not being able to live there he would never end up homeless. Basically he made a legal agreement a long time ago with the state or the city that Mar - a - Lago wouldn’t be used as a permanent residence.

Many once-loyal members of Mar-a-Lago are leaving because they no longer want to have any connection to former President Donald Trump, according to the author of the definitive book about the resort.

"It's a very dispirited place," Laurence Leamer, historian and author of "Mar-a-Lago: Inside the Gates of Power at Donald Trump's Presidential Palace," told MSNBC host Alex Witt on "Weekends with Alex Witt" Saturday. He said members are "not concerned about politics and they said the food is no good."

Florida Rep 'Disappointed' That Trump's' Mar-a-Lago Not Shut Down for Violating Mask Order

  Florida Rep 'Disappointed' That Trump's' Mar-a-Lago Not Shut Down for Violating Mask Order County officials sent a notice to the club saying that videos and pictures from a New Year's Eve party showed many attendees without facial coverings."County officials agree that Mar-a-Lago violated our mask order, but they're not trying to fine the business or shut it down even temporarily. This is disappointing. It sends a message that you can get away with violating our mask order. Not good," Hardy wrote in a tweet.

Leamer said he spoke to a number of former members who "silently walked out" after Trump left office.

Trump moved to the Palm Beach, Florida, estate after his term ended last week. But without the cachet of the sitting president of the United States working at the estate, guests are finding Mar-a-Lago lost a step. There isn't any entertainment on the property during the pandemic, and Leamer added, "It's a sad place ... it's not what it was."

Disgruntled members might lead to a smaller paycheck for Trump. When Trump was president, many people paid up to $200,000 for Mar-a-Lago memberships, Leamer pointed out, and he said they don't think they'll continue paying that price.

Mar-a-Lago has long been ridiculed by critics as a stodgy, stuffy club filled with Trump memorabilia -- some of it fake. Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on Friday recounted a visit to the resort just before Trump became president.

Donald Trump 's campaign scandals appear to finally be having an impact on his Palm Beach, Florida resort, Mar - a - Lago . The Susan G. Komen Foundation is trying to find a new location for a party in January, after Trump 's most recent groping scandals. Local event planners forecast a decrease in

At least 14 Mar - a - Lago members were able to take part in a tour of Air Force One aircraft in February 2017, government records reveal. Mar - a - lago members pay 0,000 each year to belong to Trump 's club. The fee doubled after Trump was elected. Among 14 who got the tours were family

"You could not possibly exaggerate how comical it is," Kimmel said on The Ringer's "The Bill Simmons Podcast." "Everyone there is 100 years old."

Kimmel told Simmons he went to the resort about six years ago to have dinner with Howard Stern, who lived near the property at the time. He described the Mar-a-Lago attendees as "hunched-over people who are eating soft food" and he said the place is covered in Trump photos.

"It was just quiet and a terrible place," Kimmel said. "And now he lives in this terrible place."

Trump's hotels and hospitality companies were hit particularly hard during the coronavirus pandemic, but sales at the Mar-a-Lago resort increased over the last year, from $21.4 million to $24.2 million. In 2019, the former president transferred his permanent residence to the Florida resort from Trump Tower in New York. But questions remain about whether he'll be allowed to live there permanently, because it may violate his 1993 agreement with the town of Palm Beach.

"Even here, people don't like him," Leamer said, referring to residents of Palm Beach -- many of whom voted for Trump in hopes of lower taxes and a booming stock market. "It's just another measure of how his power has declined."

Palm Beach officials confirm they're conducting a legal review to decide if Trump can still live at Mar-a-Lago .
Officials said they will look into the legality of Trump's Mar-a-Lago residency a month after neighbors sued him for violating a 1993 aggreement.More than 25 years ago, Trump made a legal agreement with the town of Palm Beach that he would limit his stays at Mar-a-Lago, in exchange for turning his private residence into a social club.
