New Yorker satirist Andy Borowitz reports that Kevin McCarthy Stuck with Check for Lunch at Mar-a-Lago.
Hey! What do you expect from a professional grifter like Trump?
PALM BEACH (The Borowitz Report)—Representative Kevin McCarthy was stuck with an “extremely large” check after having lunch at Mar-a-Lago, aides have confirmed.
The House Minority Leader had enjoyed a sumptuous five-course lunch with one other person, but when the check arrived his dining companion had vanished.
The check, which amounted to more than seven hundred dollars, raised eyebrows among the congressman’s staff.
"Even if you count all the Diet Cokes, that was a lot,” one staffer said.
Upon closer examination, the lunch bill included a mysterious “administrative charge” amounting to six hundred dollars, which McCarthy had no choice but to pay.
For his part, the Republican leader said that his visit to Mar-a-Lago was “great,” and downplayed reports that he was unable to get his parking validated, costing him an additional ninety dollars.
Scriber’s Usually Unreliable Sources report that McCarthy, hat in hand so to speak, asked Speaker Pelosi for funds to cover the bill. He’s still waiting for the reimbursement check.
