1. great caption!

Those "icicles" look as though they could fall at any moment. Not too festive to spend NY's day in the emergency room.

have names and prefer to be called trophy wives. Plus they've all had dance lessons and are unlikely to fall. Oh wait, maybe I misunderstood your post.

10. I bet those celebrating paid very big bucks to be there.

The scene is so soulless, so empty of meaning.
How much do you think they paid per person, per couple?
$1000?
$2000?
The only saving grace of the whole scene would be if a decent charity benefitted.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/dec/31/trump-mar-a-lago-florida-new-years-eve-party

Trump looks to cash in from lavish NYE party at Mar-a-Lago – but is it ethical?
Donald Trump is throwing a lavish party tonight, as he does every New Year, at Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

But this year, with the host also serving as US president, he faces questions over the conflation of his business interests and his official responsibilities.

At $600 for dues-paying members and $750 for their guests, ticket prices are up from last year, when, as president-elect, Trump charged $525 for members and $575 for guests.

36. The only thing hes good at is making a buck.

Trump knows how to cash in any time, any place. He doesn’t know how to give, he only knows how to get. And he mistakes gaudiness for class.

53. Remember, he " took a lot of money" out of the casinos,

by bankrupting out his creditors and not paying his indigent workers.

You can't qualify for many things if you have done a bankruptcy. Yet, this thief did 4, 6 , 7 bankruptcies, made lots of money, and talked up how rich he is to become Pres of the USA.

him. Also, American banks would not loan him money, so he had to do shifty deals with Duetche Bank, the Ukrainians and the Russians.

Yet, this 50s setting shows the smoozers rubbing elbows.

15. Don't forget it costs $200,000 per year (?) to join the club just so you can buy a ticket

And that was doubled from $100,000 immediately after Trump became President of the Confederacy (which is essentially what he is - nobody lives in the Western states that voted for him).

58. Yeah, remember Jimmy Carter set up a blind trust. He became

Pres as a millionaire and found he was broke after he lost.
Bush cashed out too.
Think of all of the shit Trump gave the Clintons about their CHARITABLE foundation.

The hypocrisy is mind blowing. That is who these people are though.

55. interesting premise since nobody on the Titanic knew

That it would be the last night on that Sunday evening that they all went to dinner. It was just another night. We get a sense of foreboding from the movies about the event because we all know what happened, but the actual participants were just thinking about what they were going to do the next day, most likely.
