“An email sent to members said that service had been temporarily suspended in the club’s dining room and at its beach club because some staff members had recently tested positive. It said the club had undertaken ‘all appropriate response measures, including sanitizing affected areas,’ and that banquet and event services remain open.”
Of course, Trump himself repeatedly tried to downplay the threat posed by the virus during his failed presidency, refusing to wear a mask or encourage others to do so and assuring the American public that COVID would “disappear” just as quickly as it arrived in early 2020. His feckless response to the health crisis has resulted in the deaths of over 541,000 in the United States and cost him a second term in office.
Shortly after the AP story was released, many on Twitter noted that the Mar-a-Lago coronavirus outbreak was inevitable and that it “couldn’t happen to better people.”
Here’s what others had to say:
Who would trust going there? Not me. The owner never took the virus seriously for an entire country, but now people are supposed to believe that it has been cleaned and sanitized properly for their guests? 🤨

We knew Mar-A-Lago was a cesspool, this isn’t surprising. I feel sorry for the staff there, who are probably not allowed to wear masks

What are they whining about? It’s a hoax, it’s not real. Just a little sniffles maybe a mild cold. Pfft

How can that be? I thought it was a hoax & then would magically disappear once the election was over.

Turns out that if you deny the existence of a highly contagious virus, the virus has no problems proving you wrong.

Love how they claimed to close due to “abundance of caution”. Where was that abundance when thousands of people were dying and scientists were sounding the alarm.

But rest assured, the Bed bugs will continue working through this pandemic.
