While he has proven himself to be quite disloyal, there are some benefits to being friends with Donald Trump. The former president owns a number of golf courses and country clubs. And the crown jewel of these properties is Mar-a-Lago, located in Palm Beach, Florida.
One of the most frequent guests to Mar-a-Lago is Senator Lindsey Graham. Despite saying he was “out” on Trump following the insurrection, he still plays an awful lot of golf with him. According to Stephanie Grisham, it is because Graham loves the freebies.
Grisham writes in her new book, “And Lindsey Graham? Well, it struck me he was using Trump to mop up the freebies like there was no tomorrow (seems that he still is). He would show up at Mar-a-Lago or Bedminster to play free rounds of golf, stuff his face with free food and hang out with Trump and his celebrity pals.”
The former press secretary continues with a story about running into Graham at the club. “Senator Freeloader was sitting at a table by the pool, a big grin on his face, lapping up the goodies he was getting like some potentate. He said to me with a creepy little smile, ‘Isn’t this great? Man, this is the life.”
