This door is around the corner from Trump International Hotel in Washington DC. Its message is ominous, don’t you think?
In case you haven’t heard, Trump bought Washington DC’s Main Post office and converted it into a hotel.
Built in 1899 the Old Post Office is a 12 minute walk to the Capital. Before Trump decided to run for president, his plan was to make this building into the jewel in his crown. Every head of state would want to stay in a Trump hotel, don’t you know? Lather in golden bubbles while munching on Trump chocolates and drinking Trump wine. However early reviews are not glowing:
From the outside, it responds to a growing need, serves an audience, and looks quite grand. But on the inside, it is a complete disaster, mostly empty inside, riddled with nonsense. From Vanity Fair
Of course when he brought the property he was told if he went into office there would be a conflict of interest but I don’t think he thought he would get into office. Now I’m sure he thinks the rules don’t apply to him. After all, look at all he’s gotten away with so far.
Here’s a door of a different sort which I pray is never made into a Trump resort or golf course but in this crazy world, who knows?
This is one of the many archways at the outdoor stadium in Arlington Cemetery where Memorial Day tributes to our veterans take place. I didn’t take too many pictures at Arlington. I always find it such an overwhelming experience that snapping pictures seems wrong.
Anyway that’s the end of my contributions to Norm Frampton’s addictive #ThursdayDoors event for awhile. I need to figure out the publishing business I’ve been ignoring for the last nine months! The rent is due for me; it’s back to work I go.
