Now watch these three consecutive birdies at the tomb of the unknown golfer

 By ann summers

“Told entirely without narration, ‘You’ve Been Trumped’ captures the cultural chasm between the glamorous, jet-setting and media savvy Donald Trump and a deeply rooted Scottish community. What begins as an often amusing clash of world views grows increasingly bitter and disturbing. For the tycoon, the golf course is just another deal, with a possible billion dollar payoff. For the residents, it represents the destruction of a globally unique landscape that has been the backdrop for their lives.”

We might see POTUS-45* use the Billy Baroo soon, and tip us a quarter because he lost the grip on his shaft.


Note the media framing and the target list below, since nothing’s going to happen because like most alternative facts, it will never have happened, just as it got assembled in the factory of conspiracy-theory machines… Then again, bunkers on Scottish golf courses are much like bomb craters.

“A terrorist could decide to target a Trump Tower in Stuttgart, a Trump hotel in South Korea, or a Trump golf resort in Dubai. ”

It has all been a bad dream since November.

So instead of the casualties, outrage, counter-attacks, MIC investment, and patriotism… maybe it will be all an alternative fact and the US government should just say that it would be a conflict of interest to care about some overseas properties like 16,800 wine bottles in Istanbul.


Donald Trump not only denied recent allegations by Oscar De La Hoya that he cheated during a round of golf two years ago… Trump told the Associated Press … that De La Hoya is “absolutely lying. Not only didn’t I cheat, I didn’t play with him. I have never played a round of golf with this guy. TMZ Sports posted a video … showing Trump participating in a celebrity match with De La Hoya watching in 2010 as part of “Donald J. Trump’s Fabulous World of Golf” show.

American Presidents traditionally choose to be buried in their home towns, often in sight of a library built in their honor. If Donald J. Trump were to win the election, that might change. Although five of his relatives are interred in the Lutheran All Faiths Cemetery, in Middle Village, Queens, Trump has been making plans to spend eternity behind the first tee of one of the courses at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. “Wouldn’t you want to be buried here?” he told the Wall Street Journal, in 2015.

…I don’t think “cheating” is an accurate description of anything he did during the round we played together, just as I don’t think “lying” is an accurate description of what he does when he gives a speech or answers questions at a press conference. In Trump’s own mind, I suspect, he really did shoot 71 that day, if not (by now) 69. Trump’s world is a parallel universe in which truth takes many forms, none of them necessarily based on reality. And we’d all better get used to his way of thinking, because for the next four years we’re going to be living in that universe, too.


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called for Donald Trump’s name to be removed from a Turkish franchisee’s towers…


“I have a little conflict of interest ’cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul,” The residential tower includes the only collective wine cellar in Turkey, with a capacity of 16,800 bottles. The cellar is built by Focus Wine Cellars. The U.S.-Turkish relationship has been going through a very difficult period. Clearly, there are hopes in Ankara that it will be easier with a new administration. But it’s unclear exactly which way the new administration is going to go with Turkey or with the Middle East or, frankly, with the rest of the world.



A quick look at the list of Trump’s properties reveals that several of them are located in countries with significant serious civil unrest and instability.

Trump Tower in Istanbul, for example, probably seemed like a pretty safe bet five or ten years ago as Turkey was working towards membership of the European Union. But today, thanks to spillover from the Syrian civil war, the failed military coup, and the recent assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey, the neighborhood seems much less secure than it used to.

Trump on 12 November 2013 launched a legal challenge in Edinburgh to a planned offshore wind farm, which he says will spoil the view from his luxury coastal golf resort. In March, the Scottish government granted approval for the 11-turbine wind farm in Aberdeen Bay, off the north-east coast of Scotland. Trump International Golf Links and The Trump Organisation are asking the Court of Session to declare the decision illegal, as well as challenging a decision not to hold a public inquiry into the wind farm.

Donald Trump’s election ushers in a new challenge for homeland security and counterterrorism both at home and abroad. Trump owns, has a stake in, or has lent his name to scores of properties all over the United States and the world… The attraction to the terrorist is obvious: Trump’s hotels, resorts, and condominiums are vulnerable “soft targets,” without any of the serious security measures surrounding American embassies or other government buildings. Even better, most of these targets have the president’s name on them in huge letters. Clearly the symbolic damage of such an attack would be immense.…

Trump properties in Muslim-majority nations may present the greatest risk of attack, given Trump’s hardline rhetoric towards the Islamic State and towards Muslims and Islam more generally. Trump Tower Manila, for example, sits within easy striking distance of Abu Sayyaf, a Philippine Islamist group that has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and has a history of bombing attacks.

Trump also owns high-visibility properties in Azerbaijan, the United Arab Emirates, and India, all of which house one or more jihadist groups. Even Trump Tower in Seoul might not be safe: ISIS has recently labeled South Korea an enemy of the caliphate, attempting to incite attacks on U.S. installations in South Korea. In all of these locales, Trump Towers might prove to be an irresistible target.

    You can’t make this shit up. I love the alternative facts, my new meme.

    Why should the American taxpayer have to bear the cost of protecting properties the Orange Slug won’t divest in what is clearly a conflict of interest with being President of the United States? He brags about how rich he is – let him pay for it.

    Or he could sell them off, on condition that his Yuge name be taken off the buildings.

    He’s probably already planning on signing an Executive Order to change the name to the Trump Great White House, and give himself a cut on the t-shirts in the Trump Gift Shop he’ll set up in the main entry.

  3. I don’t think it is a matter of “if,” it a matter of when there is an attack on one of his major properties. What worries me is how he might respond. Any response he makes will not be logical, but based on his visceral reaction. We already know he is impulsive and vindictive.

    Logic has nothing to do with his policies. He told ABC News today that he *knows* waterboarding and torture work. He is very interested in reopening the overseas black sites.

    OK, this is now gone beyond all reasonable measures of sanity. Waterboarding is back on the table (literally),the Uniform Code of Military Justice is likely to be trashed, the Great Orange Satan is about to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and the U.S. might just ‘get another shot’ at taking Iraq’s oil. Thank you for the new, all-encompassing Middle East War – coming soon!
