He sent a private plane to bring me from Washington to New York and then down to Mar-a-Lago, where they worked on me at his spa.

The last time Tony Bennett came to town, it was spectacular. He arrived at the White House for dinner Dec. 21 and almost immediately doubled over in pain. An ambulance went screaming from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to Georgetown University Medical Center, where the crooner had emergency surgery for a hernia.

“And then I had a tremendous recuperation, thanks to Donald Trump,” a chipper Bennett said yesterday. “He sent a private plane to bring me from Washington to New York and then down to Mar-a-Lago, where they worked on me at his spa. The White House got me the best doctor. It was like Arabian Nights,’ when the magic carpet comes.”

He may have left his heart in San Francisco, but when time comes to rest a weary body, Tony Bennett will take Palm Beach …to be specific, Mar-a-Lago.

No stranger to either, the crooner barely hesitated when Donald Trump offered him a lakeside guest house to recuperate from double hernia surgery. Bennett, 70, was stricken at a White House dinner and repaired Dec. 21 at Georgetown University Medical Center.

To speed recover, Tony is expected to do some painting, but he doesn’t expect to be off the concert circuit too long. If he does nothing before, you can bet he’ll be at The Breakers Jan. 25. He’s headlining the 40th annual International Red Cross Ball. He wouldn’t miss it.
