Thousands who stayed behind to face Hurricane Irma are flooding into shelters, and according to The News-Press, some county shelters are already full. That’s why many in South Florida are wondering why the president isn’t stepping in to help, The Independent reported Saturday. 

“Of course he should” Florida resident Rick Castillo said about Trump opening Mar-a-Lago. 

Filmmaker Michael Moore asked the question Friday, but some Floridians are wondering, as the wind and rains grow stronger, if the president will help. 

“He should be doing anything to help the public,” Castillo said of Trump. “When people need help, you either help or you turn your head. I think Trump is turning his head.”

And it was evacuated yesterday.

But don't let that stand in Moore's way.

Here's some interesting testimonial from his own butler at the estate.

Trump’s “Winter White House” has survived four serious hurricanes since it was built 90 years ago, and will likely survive this one as well. The biggest threat will likely be water damage from storm surges that could bring up to eight feet of water crashing against the resort, worst case scenario.

“It’s the safest place in the world for a hurricane,” bragged Anthony Senecal, Trump’s longtime butler and Mar-a-Lago’s unofficial historian last year. “That house ain’t going nowhere. That house has never been seriously damaged.”

The property has 58 bedrooms, 33 bathrooms, a 20,000-square-foot ballroom, and three bomb shelters. While guests (who have paid the $200,000 initiation fee) with previous reservations are able to stay, the resort has closed further reservations and is encouraging those who have not yet arrived to make alternate plans.

 

Three bomb shelters even.

I'm not going to call anyone a troll, because I don't like it.

Certain threads speak for themselves.

WILL TRUMP'S EXCLUSIVE MAR-A-LAGO RESORT OPEN FOR HURRICANE IRMA VICTIMS? SO FAR THE ANSWER IS NO

President Donald Trump is facing calls to open his exclusive Mar a Lago resort to Florida residents who have been displaced by Hurricane Irma.

Millions of people have been evacuated from their homes, with shelters protecting tens of thousands of people from the category-4 storm, which has already claimed one life in Florida and 24 in the Caribbean.

Among those calling on the president to open up his members only club to those in need of shelter was filmmaker and activist Michael Moore, who tweeted about the president doing so as the storm hit the Florida Keys.
