A Swamp Divided: How Trump’s Arrival Turned D.C. Nightlife Upside Down

Washington is one of the only places in America where an election transforms the city’s social life. Take Juleanna Glover, one of the city’s most well-known hostesses. And I haven’t been to an actual dinner party in two years where any of the Trump officials are. “We’re not trained to deal with this,” Maria Trabocchi, a co-owner of Fiola and several sister restaurants, told The Washington Post. Jared and Ivanka are particularly well-known for using their home to entertain strategically. There are a few public bars and restaurants that Trump swampists can call their own. Someone said to me, ‘It’s our place, it’s not their place!’ ” The Mnuchins and Jared and Ivanka are regularly spotted there. Nuschese told me that Trump himself, unlike Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, hasn’t yet dined there. Rima hosts an annual gala on behalf of the Kuwait-America Foundation, which promotes ties between the two countries, and in the Obama years it attracted members of the administration. “Now she hangs with Ivanka and Kellyanne and Jared,” said the prominent D.C. hostess.
