Thursday I blogged about a demand letter (included beneath) sent to the city of Palm Beach and to the Secret Service, claiming Trump cannot legally claim Mar-a-Lago as his post-presidency residence. The story was widely reported by the Washington Post.

I’m sure you’ll be shocked to know that the WaPo just happened to leave out that the woman presumably behind the demand letter is also claiming that Mar-a-Lago’s security system is injuring her brain.

Gotta love The Daily Mail for this kind of story:

Donald Trump‘s elderly Palm Beach neighbor claims a hi-tech security system shielding the President’s sprawling Mar-a-Lago estate is giving her brain injuries, can exclusively reveal.

The explosive accusation is contained in a letter sent this week to both the Town of Palm Beach and the Secret Service, which is responsible for protecting the First Family.

It does not go into detail about the device involved but the description is consistent with the sorts of radar sensors routinely used to detect intruders at prisons, nuclear power stations and other high-risk buildings.

‘The security concerns remain of paramount importance, including issues associated with a microwave fence which is known to cause permanent brain trauma and other debilitating injuries.

‘My client exhibits symptoms of exposure,’ attorney Reginald Stambaugh writes in the December 15 correspondence obtained in full by

Stambaugh does not name the neighbor involved but a report in the Washington Post on Tuesday indicated that it was sent on behalf of 82-year-old Nancy S. DeMoss, whose home borders Mar-a-Lago to the northwest.

DeMoss, 82, has been head of her family’s philanthropic missionary foundation since the death of her insurance magnate husband, Arthur, in 1979, promoting various evangelical causes and distributing bibles and books to children in the Third World.

She is known to host luncheons and parties featuring prominent Christian speakers at her $34m waterfront residence. Neither her attorney, nor the foundation, returned calls asking for comment.

Microwave detection systems work by flooding an area with an electronic field. Any movement such as someone walking, running or climbing a fence disturbs the field and generates an alarm.

Manufacturers say they are a highly effective deterrent while insisting they do not harm humans or effect devices such as pacemakers.
