As the hardreading staff has noted, smaller-all-the-time radio personality Howie Carr has been a dedicated Trumpkin from the very start.
(Exhibit A: Carr’s groveling appearance at the Bochanalia that the autoheirotic Ernie Boch Jr. threw for Trump back in 2015.)
Later, there was this fanboy wet kiss in Carr’s Boston Herald column.
Living large at Mar-a-Lago
PALM BEACH, Fla. — So here was President-elect Donald Trump, in a tuxedo, talking to 800 or so formally dressed guests in the ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago Club here on New Year’s Eve.
“Again, I want to thank my members,” he said. “I don’t really care too much about their guests because the ones I really care about are the members. I don’t give a (bleep) about their guests. I just love my members.”
Of which Howie Carr is now one, according to Politico Playbook.
— MORE NEW MAR-A-LAGO MEMBERS: Daniel Bouaziz and Sophia Baratashvili, Howie and Kathy Carr, Gil Cohen and Paul Gervais, Jean Doyen De Montaillou and Michael Kovner, Robert and Susan Falk, Diane Lokey Farb, Carol . . .
1) Did Carr get the Coat Holder Discount for the newly calibrated $200,000 Mar-a-Lago membership fee?
2) Which local daily will be the first to pick up on Carr’s quantum leap in social status?
We’re guessing the Herald.
But you never know.
