One of Trump’s BFF is the Chinese madam who owns a chain of “massage parlors”

Wait, really?

President Donald Trump posed for a selfie during a Super Bowl party at his West Palm Beach country club with the woman who founded Orchids of Asia Day Spa — the massage parlor now at the center of a sex trafficking and prostitution investigation, a new Miami Herald report said Friday.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, a longtime friend of Trump, was charged with soliciting a prostitute at the strip mall massage parlor in Jupiter, Florida.

The woman, Li Yang, is a self-made entrepreneur from China who started a chain of day spas in South Florida, the Herald report said.

Yang was spotted in photos with Trump, Trump’s children and with Florida politician Ron DeSantis at the president’s resort, Mar-a-Lago, the paper reported. She also made contributions to Trump Victory and the president’s campaign.

“Nineteen days after Trump and Yang posed together while rooting for the Patriots, authorities would charge Kraft with soliciting prostitution at a spa in Jupiter that Yang had founded more than a decade earlier,” the Herald report said.

Yang says she sold the spa back in 2013, though there is evidence that it was involved with prostitution back then as well.

We also do not know what Yang is currently involved with these days, or how she managed to get into a party with Donald Trump.

The answer to that last question may have been partially answered by the Miami Herald which reported this:

“Since 2017, she and her close relatives have contributed more than $42,000 to Trump Victory, a political action committee, and more than $16,000 to the president’s campaign,” the publication reports. “In February 2018, Yang was invited by the White House to participate in an event hosted by the Asian American and Pacific Islander Initiative, an advisory commission Trump established by executive order the year before.”

So Yang’s ties to Trump go beyond her former business offering his buddy Robert Kraft a happy ending.

Porn stars, playmates, prostitutes — Donald Trump seems to have sampled all of them at one time or another.

So — Sarah Palin is now “paling around” with a Chinese madam who imports young women and forces them into prostitution.
