Trumps’ Mar-A-Lago appearance Saturday went out live on Periscope


President Donald Trump creates a stir no matter where he ends up -- and Saturday night was not an exception.

His appearance at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s event at Mar-A-Lago, along with that of the First Lady, Melania Trump, caught the venue’s patrons off-guard.

Douglas Kass, a Palm Beach author and investment banker, caught the event on Periscope, sending out to the world live on Periscope. Though you can’t really see the President or the First Lady, Oscar-nominated and Grammy-winning composer David Foster talks with the couple early in the video.

At one point, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney takes the stage and sings “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling”. Mulroney, who has been known to sing before, said, “Mr. President, I hope this doesn’t fracture Canadian-U.S. relations.”

Kass’ video captures Foster singing “Glory of Love”, the Peter Cetera song written for The Karate Kid, Part II, and another singer performing Whitney Houston’s song “I Have Nothing.”
