Guest At Trump Resort Shocked By What She Is Served

An incident on Sunday at one of Donald Trump’s golf clubs certainly will not rank as the biggest scandal of his presidency, but it has been getting a lot of attention on social media.

AOL reported that a customer at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., was incensed when her meal arrived. The problem was not the quality of the food, but the cutlery that came with it.

The guest, identified only by the Instagram username vacayinbae, shared a picture of the table setting.

She wrote, “I hate to do this, but this is a total #disgrace, #shame on #maralago, you can’t serve caviar with plastic spoons! Please offer your caviar with mother of pearl spoons and dishes!”

In another message, vacayinbae ridiculed the crackers that were served with the fish eggs, describing them as “low-budget" and “disgraceful.” The posts quickly became viral sensations, with hundreds of Instagram users issuing comments.

Not all of them sympathized with the diner.

“Heavens to Betsy the unmitigated gall,” one person wrote mockingly. “Plastic spoons for the caviar when people around the world are starving.”


However, vacayinbae did get some support. “Sure this lady might be stuck up and terrible timing to post this, with the political climate, but she ain’t wrong, that’s some s***,” one Instagrammer wrote.

Trump was not at the resort on Sunday, having canceled a trip there because of a crisis in the nation’s capital. He stayed at the White House to help end the government shutdown that resulted from Congress failing to approve a budget to keep federal agencies operating.

Democrats and Republicans were unable to agree on a compromise for three days.

According to CNN, the president had been scheduled to be at Mar-a-Lago during the weekend for a fundraising event commemorating his first-year anniversary in the Oval Office. Guests were being charged $100,000 to help fund his 2020 re-election campaign.

Officials did not disclose whether they were to be served plastic silverware, but the price of admission did include a photo with Trump. A $250,000 ticket reportedly featured two seats at a “roundtable” discussion, as well.

The shutdown, which began at midnight Saturday, ended when Trump signed legislation Monday night. The bill authorized government funding until Feb. 8, when lawmakers will be forced to revisit the issue.

The impasse came to a close after the top Republican and Democrat in the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Charles Schumer, made a deal. Their compromise passed the House of Representatives, 266-159, and the Senate, 81-18.

Earlier, Schumer announced that he and McConnell had resolved the situation by agreeing on a controversial immigration initiative.

McConnell declared: “I respect the passion that many of my friends in this chamber, Democrat and Republican alike, bring to the major issue before the Senate, all of these issues. But we should not let the political feuds or policy disagreements obscure the simple fact that every member of this body cares deeply about the challenges facing our country."

"It’s evident that this government shutdown is doing nothing, absolutely nothing, to generate bipartisan progress on the issues the American public care about.”
