I, for one, am so looking forward to referring to the Florida Orange Man as Trump announces his change of legal residence -- most likely to prevent seizure of Mar-A-Lago in various legal actions. As you can imagine, there was much snark on Twitter:
FYI, Florida’s homestead exemption shelters your primary residence from certain seizures: Trump, Lifelong New Yorker, Declares Himself a Resident of Florida https://t.co/31868tHTx3

Hi, Florida attorney here.
Trump is about to get ripped apart by NY Courts & there isn't a single presidential power that can stop it.
He's moving to FL because of a unique unlimited Homestead provision in our Constitution letting him keep a home of any value.

Damn straight we will get him. And btw we’ve also pierced the homesteader provisions down there a few times on insurance fraud...always follow the money.

As if the Florida man stories weren’t disturbing enough

Without knowing a single reason for this move by trump, I can guarantee that it’s a grifting move based on greed and someone else left holding the bag. He’s never once in his life been an honest, decent law abiding person. This is just more of his corrupt character.

Mr. Trump will find that there is alot more competition for money laundromats in Florida↓ Story continues below ↓

It's because his 40 yr tax free contract is up in a few months that Ed Kotch reluctantly signed. Trump probably had dirt on him.

Let’s be clear: @ewarren decided to tax the rich and biggest companies instead of most businesses and workers.
There is enough money in that model to pay for Medicare for All. The most respected economists say so.
Huge victory for #M4A.

This is a call for help.
Advertising for ACA Open Enrollment has been cut drastically.
Less enrollment means more ammunition for people who want to eliminate the ACA.
WE CAN PREVENT THAT.

I've had enough. I need something that makes me smile, and I bet you do, too:
After a brief run-in with the foul pole last night, this baseball is on its way to Cooperstown! Thank you to Howie Kendrick for generously donating his Game 7 home run ball to the HOF. That homer gave the @nationals the lead in the 7th inning, and the rest is baseball history. pic.twitter.com/wGGtJiUvfh
