'This Place Is a Sh*thole' Projected Onto Trump Hotel In Washington, DC

Vulgarity used by president projected onto Trump Hotel in DC

039;S--hole' projected onto Trump hotel

On Monday, it had a two-star rating.

Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said in a statement that Trump's alleged remarks were another "confirmation of his racially insensitive and ignorant views".

The news has prompted severe worldwide outrage, as people posted outspoken comments on Twitter, posted breathtakingly lovely pictures of Haiti and the rest of Africa, or, conversely, "shithole" scenery of some American locations, aimed to illustrate that lousy places can be found all around the globe.

Similar remarks have been made not just on the Washington, D.C. hotel, but also on other establishments under the Trump brand, including those in New York, Las Vegas, Chicago and other states.

"I don't know why anyone would want to stay in a shithole hotel, when they could go on a Norwegian Cruise or something", was posted on the pages for Trump hotels in Chicago and Las Vegas.

Although the president and a few of his allies later denied that those words were said, others in the room have sworn that the president did indeed use the harsh language attributed to him. On Sunday he told reporters that he is "not a racist".




This time around, Trump wasn't in Washington to see the projections in person as he spent the weekend at Mar-a-Lago.

"Not a DC resident? Try our shithole" and "This is not normal".

The art installation is attributed to Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, and was also shared on Instagram by Candace Reels of Female Collective and political activist Sarah Sophie Flicker, both of whom pioneer social justice.

Bell has become known as a kind of projectionist provocateur and something of a "hit-and-run editorial writer", as David Montgomery described him previous year in The Washington Post.

Incidentally, or perhaps knowingly, the Yelp reviewers who left one-star reviews for the Trump International Hotel made use of the word President Trump allegedly used as well.

The phony reviews are unlikely to last long.
