Intelligence should trump Trump

Back in the day, many years ago, when I was working for a company that did decorative painting, I was called to a Trump property job. The project was to ‘marbelize’ a red fire indicator; a red-painted device in a public space intended to visually stand out so that, in the event of a fire, someone could pull the switch and alert the Fire Department to a fire emergency. The job descriptive was to camouflage the device so that it would be indistinguishable from its marble surroundings. Donald Trump wanted this to be made invisible. He wanted the space to shout elegance and affluence and he thought that NYC’s building codes infringed on his right to create an environment of luxury. As a poor artist, I balked, philosophically, but performed the service of camouflaging the said fire alert device. In the event of a fire in this public place, no-one would be able to find the very well camouflaged fire alert device. Do I feel bad about this? Yes. Does Donald Trump? Absolutely not. Why not? Because he is a creature without a conscience.  This is what I know about Donald Trump. He is a creature without a conscience. Buyer beware.

A penny for your thoughts.
