Hurricane Dorian is threatening to strike Florida near Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s prized South Florida resort.

The storm is projected to make landfall as a Category 4 hurricane on Monday, with Melbourne as the most likely landing spot. That’s about 115 miles north of Palm Beach, where Trump’s ocean-front hotel is situated.

Mar-a-Lago remains in the “cone of uncertainty” — the range of potential paths the hurricane could take as it strengthens in the Caribbean.

Previous hurricane models suggested Dorian could pass right through the so-called Winter White House, a frequent destination for Trump’s working vacations.

Trump has tweeted he is monitoring the storm, first celebrating the storm had spared Puerto Rico before warning Floridians it was headed their way.

“It will be a very big Hurricane, perhaps one of the biggest!” Trump wrote.

Guests of Mar-a-Lago were forced to evacuate during Hurricane Irma in 2017. Trump once claimed the property sustained $17 million in damage during the infamous 2005 hurricane season, but an Associated Press investigation found little evidence the private club took a hit.

Suffice to say, Twitter is enjoying the irony:
