Trump’s DC Hotel Branded With New Name: Shithole

The word “shithole” was projected onto President Donald Trump’s Washington, D.C., hotel Saturday for about 40 minutes.

Video from Robin Bell, who has projected other words along the Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. (formerly the Old Post Office Pavilion), projected “shithole” along with tons of “poop” emojis, with an arrow pointing at the rounded entrance.


Other words on the wall included, “Pay Trump bribes here,” “Emoluments welcome,” and “We are all responsible to stand up and end white supremacy.”

This, of course, is in response to Trump reportedly calling Haiti, El Salvador and all of Africa “shithole countries” last week.

And so, one good turn deserves another.
