Do you like restaurants with "live and dead cockroaches" in the kitchen and “slimy/mold-like build-up” in coolers and freezers? Try one of Trump's fine dining establishments, then. From The Daily Beast:
The president’s Mar-a-Lago resort has been faulted with 51 health-code violations since 2013. Health inspectors have also found an additional 30 at Mar-a-Lago’s beach club.
Trump’s Doral golf club outside Miami has fared even worse: Between its main kitchen, banquet hall, café, patio grill, and bungalows, inspectors have found 524 health-code violations since 2013, including a number that resulted in fines. Among inspectors’ findings were multiple spottings of live and dead cockroaches (they noted 20-25 live ones visibly present in the main kitchen during one 2015 visit), “slimy/mold-like build-up” in coolers and freezers, and holes in kitchen walls.
During that same time, Virginia health authorities have found just three violations at the Red Hen. Last year, they observed a number of jars containing pickles and jams that had not come from an approved food processor. The restaurant said they were simply decorative, but agreed to remove them. In 2014, inspectors noted that its grits were not properly dated, and that raw beef was being stored above ready-to-eat food. A follow-up visit showed that those violations had been corrected.
By the end of the year, Trump and his family will have spent more of the Secret Service’s budget than the Obama administration spent in eight years — enough to exhaust the Secret Service’s entire budget for the year and drive 500 Secret Security agents to quit their jobs in disgust.
If you’re about to order a fine meal at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s fancy club-turned-winter-White-House, make sure to steer clear of the fish. And the meat. And you might want to offer the server some hand sanitizer while you’re at it. Restaurant inspectors recently found 13 violations at the private Palm Beach, FL club. Among them, according […]
