Too posh to push

Trump Tower is approximately 5 minutes’ walk from our apartment. We wandered past it last night, gaudy show-off. 

I FaceTime my mum and happen to mention this to her;

“Oh yes. When we were there, they were going to take us to Trump Tower so that we could use the loos. Apparently the taps are made of gold!”.

The image of a coach-full of tourists filing into the gold-gilded bathrooms at Trump HQ, to take a shit, is just too perfect. They didn’t go, in more ways than one, in the end. Mr Trump was on-location and it wouldn’t have been appropriate.

I’d have settled for the entrance lobby.
