Subject: WH travel pool report 3: back to MAL and lid
The Trump motorcade exited his golf club at 1:38 pm and headed back to Mar-a-Lago, where the SUVs entered the gates at 1:48 pm. Your pooler has had no visibility on the president.
A travel photo lid was called at 1:57 pm.
Note: On the return drive, just before the bridge to Palm Beach, a few supporters lined the road waving US and Trump flags and holding signs as the motorcade passed.
One sign read “Stop the Steal,” and another said “In Trump I Trust.”
An eagle-eyed photographer in the pool took a photo of something I did not see in the blur as we drove by, but confirmed in her images: a man wearing a Proud Boys black and yellow shirt and cap, raising his hand with his fingers in an “OK” sign — connecting the thumb and forefinger In a circle and raising the three other fingers.
Cheers and have a great rest of your Christmas Eve.
