President Trump and his wife were hosting a swell Super Bowl party at Trump’s Palm Beach golf club Sunday night, and for three quarters, things looked pretty dismal for his favorite team, the New England Patriots.
Trump’s departure — who can blame him? — came just after the Atlanta Falcons had taken a 28-3 lead, meaning he missed the New England touchdown that cut the margin to 19 points just a few minutes later. He appears to have turned on the TV the moment he got back to Mar-a-Lago because he tweeted shortly after 10:30.
