Lengel: President Trump Wants to Have Dinner with Me in Palm Beach

I get a lot of emails, particularly during campaign season. But this one is special.

Somehow, even though I've never contributed a dime to President Trump's campaign, he was nice enough to invite me to dinner with him in Palm Beach, Fla.

Our president kindly wrote to this member of the fake news media:

Friend,

I just got out of a meeting with my team to discuss an upcoming trip to Palm Beach, Florida on March 6th, and I told them I wanted to invite YOU to join me.

This isn’t any ordinary trip. This is a very exclusive dinner with VIP guests and I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather share this special evening with than YOU.

My team will cover the cost of your flight, hotel, and meal, and you can even bring a guest of your choice. (I'm assuming he means anyone but Adam Schiff or Nancy Pelosi).

Wow! Me and The Donald at dinner -- how awesome.

Ok. There's a catch. The letter adds:

All you have to do is contribute ANY AMOUNT and you’ll automatically be entered to win this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. ...

My favorite part about being your President is having the chance to meet real American Patriots from all across the country and hear what they think Makes America Great.

This will be the trip of a lifetime. Remember, if you win, my team will cover your flight, hotel, and dinner, and you’ll get to bring a guest of your choice. We’ll even take a photo together so we can remember the night forever.

I'm really looking forward to this dinner. And the great thing is, while we may not see eye-to-eye on plenty of issues, I'm embarrassed to say we do have something in common: We both like our steaks well-done and we like them with ketchup. 

I think that's a pretty good starting point. We'll take it from there. 

P.S.: Mr. President, please invite Attorney General William Barr. I have a favor to ask on behalf of a friend.

P.P.S.: Please don't invite that Rep. Jim Jordan. He annoys me. 

P.P.P.S.: My editor just described this piece as "slight." Personally, I think she's just jealous. Wait until I send her a postcard from Mar-a-Lago.
