Guests who paid four-figures for tickets to President Donald Trump's annual New Year's Eve party were left to party with his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, his two adult sons and various figures from the conservative media -- none of whom wore masks. [...]
Without the President as the centerpiece, the wattage of Thursday evening's party was somewhat dimmer. Performers whose heyday came decades ago -- Vanilla Ice and Berlin -- performed from the ballroom's main stage.
Tables set for 10 people, with no social distancing, were clustered in the ballroom with white floral arrangements and candles encased in a sculpture meant to look like the New Year's Eve ball. The menu consisted of "Mr. Trump's Wedge Salad" -- the club has kept "Mr. Trump" instead of "President Trump" on the dish -- cheese tortellini and Wagyu beef.
Don Jr. seemed particularly enthralled by a performance by 1990s rapper and accused domestic abuser Vanilla Ice. "Ok this is amazing," Don Jr. wrote in a Facebook post that included a video of the has-been singing his hit "Ice, Ice Baby" while guests huddled together dancing.
I just saw video of Kimberly Guilfoyle dancing to Vanilla Ice as she shouted the words 'play that funky music white boy' and I'm not sure I will make a full recovery.
