If GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign doesn't have an office in Miami, why is there a Donald Trump for President Dade County Office? And what gets wetter as it dries?

The Miami Herald solved the riddle on Tuesday, revealing the Facebook page's admin, Mark Bernstein, made the parody page as an accessory to a Trump-themed New Year's party.
