Liberals are furious that Donald Trump is a billionaire real estate mogul who owns a hotel in Washington DC. Well, that’s not why they hate him, but it is a reason they think he should be impeached. Since that ain’t going to happen due to the Constitution and whatnot, one leftist lunatic has decided to open an Anti-Trump hotel in DC. That seems like a lot of money to drop on a temper tantrum, but who ever said liberals make sense?
This is apparently a real thing that Bloomberg is proud to report on: Coming Soon to Washington: An Anti-Trump Hotel for Liberals
The place is called The Eaton Workshop, which is not only a dumb name for a hotel but also for an anti-Trump hotel. Snowflake Inn, Temper Tantrum Suites, or The Liberal Tears Motor Lodge would have been way better names. In any case, it is located near the National Mall and will open next year.
In Trump’s Washington, Eaton is planting a clear flag as a haven for Democrats. It’s the world’s first politically motivated hotel, the flagship for a global brand that’s built around social activism and community engagement.
Eaton Workshop is different. With a premise that’s built around liberal activism and civic engagement, the brand will weave a liberal philosophy into every aspect of the guest experience, some more obvious than others.
It’s never really explained what any of this nonsense means, but there is this disturbing detail from hotel owner Katherine Lo:
Though she repeatedly talks about fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion, Lo also tells Bloomberg that “the goal isn’t to bring together left and right.” Instead, she wants to create “a diversity of fields and backgrounds as well as gender and ethnicity.” In other words, her hotel should represent the antithesis of the Trump hotel that’s just a few blocks away, offering an intellectual playground to those who may feel marginalized by the current administration’s agenda.
Call me crazy, but that kind of sounds like a “no white people” policy, doesn’t it? I’m sure gay white people will be allowed, but definitely not any straight ones. Maybe I’m reading too much into this and they just have a “check your white privilege with your luggage” thing going.
I can see a lot of problems with this ridiculous idea, but the most glaring is this: The Eaton Workshop sits on some seriously high-dollar real estate. This is not going to be a cheap place to stay. “Marginalized people” is synonymous with “poor people.” How in the hell do you make any money off a luxury hotel that caters exclusively to low-life bums who don’t have any money? Are they going to let guests pay for everything with EBT cards?
Even the well-off liberals who may want to stay here are going to consider the price over their activism. They can still hate Trump at the Embassy Suites, while enjoying a really kick-ass breakfast buffet and free drinks at happy hour.
Anti-Trump didn’t work out for Hillary Clinton who lost the election on this stupid message. Liberal TV shows and websites are learning that anti-Trump doesn’t turn into viewers and traffic. The NFL is on it’s way out of business with their anti-Trump nonsense. What are the chances that this message, which is a proven failure, will translate into a wildly successful hotel?
What is going to make this truly hysterical is, if Trump ends up buying the property when they go belly up.
