“This sure ain’t no ****hole!” Fox News host Jeanine Pirro tells Mar-a-Lago crowd


Update 9:18 p.m.: Jeanine Pirro, host of Fox News Channel's Justice with Judge Jeanine, opened her remarks to the packed ballroom with a poke at the profane word the president allegedly used do describe Haiti and countries in Africa. 

"Welcome to Mar-a-Lago. A magnificent place. It sure ain't no s***hole!"

Pirro spoke for about 15 mintues and inspired a rally-like response of “Lock her up!” with her criticism of Hillary Clinton. 

Pirro’s praise of the president’s decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem drew applause and brought some guests to their feet. Pirro called out the Justice Department as corrupt and said a Clinton presidency would have destroyed America.

 

Update 8:13 p.m.:

Update 7:34 p.m.: After a chilly hour on the pool deck, guests are being moved into the grand ballroom for dinner. The president is not in attendance but he appears to be there in spirit - or cardboard.

Update 7:15 p.m. Poolside ambiance provided by a Trumpette billboard and the Trumpmobile, a decked out limo that has become a staple along the president’s motorcade route to Mar-a-Lago.

Update 7:10 p.m.: And they’re wearing red, white and blue. Lots of red, white and blue.

Update 6:45 p.m.: Some enthusiastic guests arrived before the 6:30 p.m. start of the party and were greeted by a Dixie Land band playing classic American tunes. As the temperature continues dropping into the 50s, heat lamps have been placed outside near the pool to keep guests warm. And yes, they are eating French Fries. 

Update 6:05 p.m.: Perhaps the first time sliders have been served as hors d'oeuvres at Mar-a-Lago.

Update 5:48 p.m.: A nippy 57 degrees at Mar-a-Lago as Trumpette partygoers sip cocktails poolside.

Preparations for the Trumpette’s sold-out bash at Mar-a-Lago tonight are underway. 

The Trump private jet (formerly known as Trump Force One) has arrived at Palm Beach International Airport. Eric Trump is expected to speak at the event and other family members are also expected to attend.

In preparation, American flags have been placed along the entrance to the president’s private club.
