Aronbergs, Florida Jewish Power Couple Split Over President Trump

There’s an unusual reason that a southern Florida Jewish couple are divorcing — Lynne and David Aronberg vehemently disagree about President Trump. She loves — but he hates — the current occupant of the White House.

“We would go to Mar-a-Lago almost every weekend,” Lynne Aronberg told Refinery29, “and he wouldn’t even take a photo with me.” Lynne Aronberg is a media consultant and voted for the president last fall. She and husband David, the district attorney for Palm Beach County, are part of Trump’s social circle. David is a Democrat.

She added: “I would rebel — I would make my profile picture with Donald Trump,” she said. To her husband she said, “You’re choosing your career over your wife. There were obviously other things involved. But at the end of the day, I needed my husband to support and defend me.”

Lynne Aronberg’s Trump mania knows few bounds. She even has a dog named Ivanka. Meanwhile, they’re not the only ones splitting over Trump — as well as rumors that the Scaramucci divorce was because of his (brief) White House job, there’s anecdotal evidence that it’s happening to other couples.
