Donald Trump’s DC hotel takes a hit as his toxic campaign spirals out of control

Published

on

Donald Trump’s White House bid has been confusing from the start. It’s been unclear to many why the real estate mogul would ditch his reality TV lifestyle to run for president of the United States.

Maybe it was an elaborate marketing plan — he did tout his various products throughout his campaign.

However, as the GOP nominee plows through the end of the election on a sinking ship, it looks like he might be taking his brand down with him, NY Mag reports.

Think back to March during Trump’s Super Tuesday 2 speech. He spoke about his Trump Water, Trump Steaks, Trump University, Trump Airlines, Trump Wine, Trump Vodka, and Trump Magazine. 

But after the released tape of the GOP nominee bragging about sexually assaulting women, and the various women who have come forward since then to share their stories, Donald Trump’s campaign is spiraling out of control.

These latest revelations about the Donald’s treatment of women may have been enough to negatively impact his current and future business ventures long after Election Day.

According to NY Mag, Trump’s DC Hotel appears to be having some trouble filling its rooms, which are also now coming at a heavily discounted price. Rooms that would normally go for about $800 were listed for as low as $445 per night, NY Mag writes.

The outlet noted, “Trump promised to offer luxurious suites to lure business execs and diplomats, but many of the international elite appear to be avoiding it.”

Ada Pena, a DC travel agent suggested that this was due to the “political atmosphere,” adding that people don’t want to be asked “why are you staying here?”

Pena also said, “It’s a shame that it is called Trump because it’s a beautiful property. But overall, his brand is hurting.”

Trump’s campaign and his brand taking a plummet wouldn’t be his first failed business venture, but it’s hard to say whether his name will recover.

Andrew Cuomo threatens to bail on CNN interview when his brother shows vintage photo of governor in bellbottoms

Published

on

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) appeared to feign anger during a CNN interview Wednesday in which his brother, Christopher Cuomo, showed a vintage photo of their family with the elder brother clad in bellbottoms, a rhinestone belt and an unfortunate attempt at an afro.

The younger Cuomo is still suffering from the effects of coronavirus, appearing redfaced and wiping his brow. However, his brother noted that he seemed more animated than he has in days.

"Now I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the 'Love Gov' and I'm wondering if that's making you a little soft on the president, that you don't want to really criticize him, because you need him and now's not a time for fighting," said the younger Cuomo. "But don't you have to balance that with calling him out if he's doing things that you don't think are great for the people of your state to be hearing and experiencing? Love Gov?"

Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying threat from coronavirus: report

Published

on

Major Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity spent weeks assuring viewers that the novel coronavirus wasn't a serious threat. In recent weeks, however, they have shifted to a different narrative, acknowledging that the virus is dangerous but giving President Donald Trump credit for taking action and criticizing Democrats' lack of action — even though many Democrats, in fact, warned the pubic first.

But according to The Daily Beast, even as there is no clear end to the crisis in sight, and even as the U.S. crosses 13,000 deaths, many Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying the virus, either telling viewers it wasn't as bad as advertised and urging the president to end public safety measures against it.

The dangers of Trump TV: MSNBC host hammers Fox News as ‘genuine public health threat’ amid pandemic

Published

on

Tuesday night, Fox News decided that all anyone needed to do is to pump Americans with a Malaria drug and send them back to work to save President Donald Trump's economy.

Speaking Wednesday night, MSNBC host Chris Hayes bashed the conservative network for downplaying the seriousness of coronavirus, saying that they are "a genuine public health threat."

While Trump has advisers like Dr. Anthony Fauci, he also has the unofficial advisers he sees on Fox News.

They "are coalescing around the idea the whole thing is just overblown and we need to pump everyone full of the malaria drug and get them back to work. This is what you heard if you watch trump tv just last night," Hayes said. He then played clips illustrating exactly that, with hosts ranting and raving about the virus not being as serious as the flu.
