6. And yet he still cast a vote in Florida

“You voted by mail in Florida’s election last month, didn’t you?” the reporter asked.

“Sure,” the president replied. “I can vote by mail.”

To register in Florida you must:

* be a legal resident of both the State of Florida and of the county in which you seek to be registered

Of course, given that Trump is -- according to his legal team -- completely immune from prosecution while serving as president, I guess this means he can register to vote in all 50 states if he feels like it. Hey, he could probably vote like 50 million times in each state if he wanted to. Remember -- when the president does it, it's not a crime!
