Trump is in Israel, the second stop on a nine-day overseas tour.

Whatever the reason, one thing is clear: In the wake of a chaotic week filled with Trump-related scandals, the Mar-a-Lago sinkhole is the unlikely hero the internet needed.

They often occur when rocks made of chalk, limestone or the mineral gypsum are dissolved by acidic rainwater, which explains their prevalence in recent weeks.
