Trump Wants To Host The Next G7 Summit At His Florida Resort Which Settled A Bed Bug Lawsuit

First of all, I just want to say this so that you know that you’re not crazy: yes, we live in hell. The President of the United States Donald Trump went off on Twitter to dispel any rumors that the Trump National Doral resort has bedbugs because he wants to host the G7 summit there. 

“Wow, none of those words make sense to me. I know all the words but in that order, they make no sense, Emerald,” you say. Yes, but we live in hell, mami. Just ride the infinite rollercoaster of horrors and try not to puke. I will do my best to explain just one of the ways our dear president Trumpito is an unstable, selfish buffoon… this week… again.

The opposite of what Trump says is usually the truth. 

“No bedbugs at Doral. The Radical Left Democrats, upon hearing that the perfectly located (for the next G-7) Doral National MIAMI was under consideration for the next G-7, spread that false and nasty rumor. Not nice!” Trump tweeted.

According to the Washington Post, Trump has made 12,019 false or misleading claims since he became President. I remember stealing a jumbo crayon from school. I slid it into my pocket while I made eye contact with my second-grader teacher who was literally watching me steal. She asked if I stole a crayon. I said no. I was a more convincing liar than Trump. 

There were definitely bedbugs at the Trump National Doral in Miami, Florida. 

It’s right here, in the lawsuit, LOL! In 2016, 63-year-old Eric Linder filed a lawsuit alleging bedbug infestation at the Trump National Doral. Linder claimed that after spending $300-a-night at the Doral (to eat deadly salmonella-contaminated mousse and support America’s first dictator) he was perturbed to discover “welts, lumps, and marks over much of his face, neck, arms and torso,” caused by alleged bedbugs. 

Linder had photographs to prove his claim. The hotel didn’t say that there were no bedbugs. Instead, management basically said it was Linder’s fault for getting bitten by the bedbugs, which seems pretty consistent with Trump’s victim-blaming attitude. 

“Doral’s management hit back, claiming Linder ‘conducted himself so carelessly and negligently that his conduct was the sole proximate cause or contributing cause’ for the insects’ attack,” according to The Guardian. The club settled the lawsuit. 

What is the G7 and why would it be held at a Trump resort? 

I can’t emphasize this enough: the G7 will never be at a Trump resort. In fact, that is a timeline so dark — please, don’t even suggest it. I shudder to think! The G7 is represented by the seven countries with the most advanced economies: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The annual summit is where global economic policies are discussed. 

It’s a very important meeting with the world’s most powerful people. The 45th summit, held over this past weekend, was in Biarritz, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France at the Hotel du Palais. The hotel was built in 1855, originally as a summer villa for Empress Eugénie. For these reasons, hosting the G7 at a Trump golf course is an absolute joke. You’d have a better shot of Angela Merkel accepting your offer to get bottomless breadsticks at the Olive Garden. 

But why does Trump want to host the G7 at a Trump resort?

Trump’s attempt to steer the next G7 toward one of his resorts is transparently for his own profits. Yes, it is weird for a President to be running a business while he is President. This is unusual behavior. Do you remember Obama telling you to check out this new app called Pattern? Do you remember George Bush Jr. trying to raise money on Kickstarter for a new product called “male leggings” named Meggings”? No! This behavior is unpresidential and unethical. The real tea is that while it is frowned upon, it is perfectly legal. Yes, this is something you should ask your local congressperson about. 

Presidents are not required to give up their businesses, although those who have them typically put them in blind trusts where they are managed by independent parties who make decisions without them. Imagine your President owns a corn business, well if he didn’t put that business into a blind trust, he could make decisions to deregulate FDA corn guidelines, he could influence the stock market to improve the value of corn shares, he could potentially make a lot of decisions to benefit his business at the expense of the American public. Jimmy Carter famously put his peanut farm into a trust. 

Trump has not done this with any of his businesses. Instead, he relinquished control to his two sons. So of course, he wants to host the G7 there, he wants to use our government, our labor, and our tax dollars to pay for his all-too-comfortable lifestyle. I got one word for you, kids: resist.

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos for Trump has long been a confusing organization in the Latino community. President Donald Trump has built his administration and brand to be squarely against people of color. Now, the Latinos for Trump group caused a stir when they posted a collage of flags that are not quite right.

Latinos for Trump really thought they had something when they posted their Hispanic Heritage Month collage.

The first, and most obvious mistake, is that the Mexican flag is backwards. The flag is supposed to be green, white, and red in that order. As we can all see, the collage has a Mexican flag that is red, white, and green. The eagle is even facing the wrong way so someone literally flipped the flag the wrong way.

Of course, some people tried to make sense of the bizarre Mexican flag snafu.

Last year, the Trump administration announced that it was cutting aid to three countries in Central America. The countries were El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Fox & Friends picked up the story but told their audience that Trump was cutting aid to “3 Mexican countries.” Perhaps this Twitter user is right and the Latinos for Trump are trying to suggest the existence of other Mexicos.

Someone else pointed out the issues with the Guatemalan flag in the top right corner.

People are very defensive about their cultural heritage and national origin. Messing up someone’s flag is a very serious issue for people. Just ask a Cuban or Puerto Rican about people confusing their flags. It is never a good thing.

Some people fixed the image for them so the organization can see what it should have looked like.

Good, clean lines with all of the flags facing the right way. The creator even changed the message in the middle for the Latino community. It is clear that social media is still willing to show up and teach a couple of lessons here and there.

Others had a more direct message for Latinos for Trump.

We all know that social media is where things go to be manipulated and made fun of. It is very important that if you make something for social media that you take good care to make sure that you check all of the right boxes and execute your work right the first time.

Michael Cohen’s New Tell-All Book Talks About Trump’s Scandalous Golden Shower Moment And His Hair Secrets

Michael Cohen’s New Tell-All Book Talks About Trump’s Scandalous Golden Shower Moment And His Hair Secrets

By now, we’re pretty certain the Trumps have had their fill of scandalous tell-all books. After all, each one seems to published by former members of their inner circle who no longer want to be the keepers of their dirty laundry. In the weeks leading up to the upcoming election, the Trumps have seen some of their worst secrets and darkest moments spilled by family members and ex- BFFs. Now, the president’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen is taking a jab at yanking out the skeleton’s in Donald Trump’s closet.

In his latest book Disloyal: A Memoir Cohen tallies of an insane list of “dirty deeds” which he claims he performed for Trump. And of course, while Cohen is a man whose credibility has been tainted various times, we couldn’t help but take a peek at the dirty Trump laundry he’s airing out in the book. Particularly because he started writing it while in prison after pleading guilty to criminal lies and financial crimes carried out on Trump’s behalf.

Check out the book’s biggest spills below!

Trump isn’t a big fan of his own son Donald Jr. 

In his book, Cohen writes about Trump’s frequent dismissals of his eldest child son Donald Jr. “Over time, I would come to learn that his father held him in extremely low esteem,” Cohen writes in his book recalling a moment in which Trump had been getting ready for a cameo at a WWE wrestling event when his son asked him if he was nervous.

“I’m going in front of millions of people. What kind of stupid fucking question is that? Get out of here,” Cohen recalled of the moment Trump made his son leave the room. “That kid has the worst fucking judgment of anyone I have ever met. What a stupid thing to say — to put that thought in my head.” 

Cohen thinks Trump is a pretty big racist.

“The Trumps were actually racist,” Cohen writes about Trump and his father Fred. “As a rule, Trump expressed low opinions of all black folks,” Cohen recalled in the book. “What he said in private was far worse than what he uttered in public.” 

In his book, Cohen also claimed that Trump criticized countries led by Black leaders the moment Barack Obama became elected president.

“Tell me one country run by a black person that isn’t a shithole,” Trump asked Cohen. “They are all complete fucking toilets.” 

“South Africa was once a beautiful country twenty, thirty years ago,” Cohen claimed Trump said. “Mandela fucked the whole country up. Now it’s a shithole. Fuck Mandela. He was no leader.”

Trump is extremely jealous of Barack Obama.

Which we all knew but this bit below is particularly hilarious.

“Watching Obama’s Inauguration in 2008 with Trump, with the massive, adoring, joyful crowd on the Mall, incensed the Boss in a way I’d never seen before — he was literally losing his mind watching a handsome and self-evidently brilliant young black man take over,” Cohen wrote in the memoir. “When Obama won the Nobel Prize, Trump went ballistic.”

Trump’s hair myths are worse than you thought.

According to Cohen, Trump’s bizarre hairstyle is a result of a botched scalp surgery. Cohen alleges in his book that a hair-implant operation in the 1980s disfigured Trump’s scalp. Apparently, to hide his scars, he uses his hair (which when undone) hangs down below his shoulder on the right side. 

“The three-step procedure required a flop up of the hair from the back of his head, followed by the flip of the resulting overhang on the back of his pate, and then the flap of his combover on the right side, providing three layers of thinly disguised balding-male insecurity,” Cohen writes. 

Cohen says Trump really did get a golden shower

Cohen admits that he and the president attended a strip show in Las Vegas where an act “involved two strippers drinking champagne and pretending to snort coke as they undressed, while one of them simulated giving the other a golden shower as the other caught the fake urine and drank it.” 

Cohen claims in his book that he didn’t witness that part of the show personally but that it was performed that night after seeing it on the club’s Facebook page. 

He also says that he doesn’t know what happened at the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013. There the notorious “dossier” alleged Trump hosted strippers who peed on each other in his hotel room as part of a performance. Of course, Trump denies this ever happened.
