WATCH: Washington Post political reporter David Farenthold says Doral is not an ideal place to host the G7 summit. #mtpdaily@Fahrenthold: "If your list was a campground at the top of Mount McKinley, and a Chuck E. Cheese's, and Doral, then Doral was the best place." pic.twitter.com/ld7IuqsclM

A group of world leaders show up in a Florida resort with no preparation for a meeting hosted by a complete idiot: This is a pitch for "Mar-A-Lago Is Down" that Hollywood rejected because it was too improbably stupid even for an action flick. https://t.co/TqjEXmJSeP

In October 2016, a former State Dept employee was sentenced to 50 months in prison for his role in steering the sole-sourcing of $2M in USG contracts to a company in which his son had a 50% interest. Trump just steered the G7 meeting directly to himself. https://t.co/soCTpAqBWq https://t.co/mLJUF4schd

JUST IN: The House is teeing up a vote on a resolution to condemn holding the G7 at Trump's Doral resort and "rejecting his practice of accepting foreign government Emoluments without obtaining Congress’ affirmative consent"
Rules Committee plans to mark it up on Tuesday.

If you’re in a paranoid mood (remember, even paranoids have real enemies!): It has been widely assumed that Trump’s ‘special guest nation’ at this G7 would be… Russia. What price a scenario where Putin rejects his puppet’s down-at-heels hotel, and tells him he’d prefer to introduce his own ‘security arrangements’ at Camp David?
