It's the Small But Satisfying Humiliations That Help Get Us Through the Day

Donald Trump changed his permanent legal address to Mar-a-Lago a few years ago, and he has plans to move there after he leaves the White House. His neighbors, however, aren’t keen on it. And the thing is? They can — and expect to — keep him from moving in. Apparently, Trump signed a deal in 1993 agreeing that Mar-a-Lago would remain a private club and never a residential hotel. He also signed a second agreement assuring that Mar-a-Lago would never be used for “any purpose other than club use.” His neighbors are seeking to enforce those agreements now.

Just how amazing would it be if the President was barred from living in his own hotel! I love the pettiness of his neighbors here, too. All around A+ job! The city of Palm Beach, meanwhile, will have to weigh in on this matter soon.

In other small but satisfying humiliations, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo invited 900 guests to his Christmas Party last night, which was to be indoors where masks were not required (except for the Santa, apparently). Only 70 people ultimately RSVPd and only a few dozen actually showed up to the party. Pompeo — who has spent over $40,000 of taxpayer money hosting holiday parties in recent days — ultimately didn’t even give remarks. It’s clearly for the best because this morning, well, we got this news:

I suppose there is consolation in the fact that a small superspreader event could have been a much, much larger one.

Finally, in this small but satisfying humiliation, Scott Baio inadvertently trolled … himself? It started here, with Baio thinking that somehow the number of Twitter followers someone has correlates with the number of votes they should have received:

Christopher Titus weighed in, Scott Baio Chachi’d himself, and then Titus milked it for all it was worth:

Getting owned by Christoper Titus is a new level of low (no offense to Christopher Titus).
