From our Late to the Party of Two desk
As our kissin’ cousins at Two-Daily Town have dutifully noted, Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr is not only a charter member of the local Donald Trump fanboy club, he’s also a member of Trump’s swanky Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago.
As is New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick.
And now they’ve made their way into the swanky New York Times.
From Sunday’s Page One:
For $200,000, a Chance To Whisper in Trump’s Ear
Membership at Mar-a-Lago Gives Titans Easier Access to Political Power
On any given weekend, you might catch President Trump’s son-in-law and top Mideast dealmaker, Jared Kushner, by the beachside soft-serve ice cream machine, or his reclusive chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, on the dining patio. If you are lucky, the president himself could stop by your table for a quick chat. But you will have to pay $200,000 for the privilege — and the few available spots are going fast.
And at least two of those spots, the Times notes, have gone to Boston “boldfacers.”
The list of members is a who’s who of the world of global finance and real estate, but it is also sprinkled with other boldface names, like Howie Carr, the Boston radio show host, and Bill Belichick, the head coach of the New England Patriots, according to three lists reviewed by The Times, from 2015 through earlier this year.
