‘Check Please!’ For Trump Hotel Liquor License?

News That Will Drive You To Drink

Emoluments Clause Central, er, Trump International Hotel, where grifters grease the palms of the Trump Crime Family, is in great peril! It seems that in D.C. in order to run an establishment with a liquor license, the licensee must be a person of fine standing.

Comrade Stupid is not that person!

“Washington’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board opened the door this week to hearing a challenge to President Donald Trump’s liquor license at his Washington hotel over claims that he doesn’t meet the city’s “good character” requirements.

“The board on Wednesday issued an order denying the Trump International Hotel’s motion to dismiss a “protest” from a group consisting of an attorney, two former judges and a handful of religious leaders who assert that Trump is not of “good character” and therefore should not be able to sell alcoholic beverages in Washington.

“The group is citing a DC regulation that says a liquor license owner must be “of good character and generally fit for the responsibilities of licensure.” Trump, they say, remains an owner of the hotel, though he has handed over day to day management to his sons while in office.”

Now when it comes to lying, assaulting women, his assorted grifts, associating with known criminals, etc, Trump’s their man! They have a point!

“Joshua Levy, an attorney who is representing the group challenging the license renewal, told CNN on Friday that the board’s order is “a solid victory for the rule of law.”

“Despite Trump’s efforts to silence the public and hold himself above the law, the board correctly denied his motion to dismiss and found that the public can ‘protest’ the owner’s character on renewal of their liquor license,” Levy said.”

Now, we are NOT saying that Prznint Stupid is running a floating craps game there (afterall, he bankrupted casinos in Atlantic City), but certainly every two-bit grifter who wants a deal with him shows up there, flashes a gang symbol (usually Benjamin), and before too long we hear that they beat the house odds. Ivanka just pocketed a cool four-five million Ameros for whatever it is that she does there, now imagine what Daddy makes.

It is a cliché that deals are made over drinks in every major city, and that the powerful are at best an amoral lot, and DC probably has more deals of major importance—global, even—than any other world HQ city. Will people still show up at the hotel to spend big bucks if there is no beverage service? How will the Trump Crime Family service the debt for this place?

    His continued ownership of the place violates the emoluments clause. Even without all the other stuff it should be a slam dunk.

    Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas strangely does not have a casino. Why? You may ask; well, the Nevada Gaming Commission made the determination on his first application that he be denied, due to his association with “known organized-crime members” in his real estate dealings and his construction work in NY City. And they denied his appeals and re-applications, and even told him to stop trying, it was never gonna happen.
    They also made comments regarding his character, which one member compared to slime-mold, but since that was NOT a criteria for denial, they went with the Mafia thing.

    PS – since it’s nearly impossible to build anything of consequence, or largeness in NY without associating with “organized-crime types, it’s not really poor donny’s fault. Oh, and the Gaming Commission also warned him not to try to apply again, when he tried to get someone else to front for him as part of a “partnership deal.” To them, there would NEVER be a casino in any building or enterprise with the name “Trump” associated with it.

    • Oh hell yes it’s donny’s fault.

      Simply having to deal with the mob in NYC construction trades isn’t ‘association’ by the definition the NV Gaming Commission has it. Almost certainly Trump has silent partners in some of his properties, and lord knows how many russian mobsters have laundered money through the Trump Tower and other properties. That’s the kind of ‘association’ they’re talking about.

      And that’s entirely without going into his history in Atlantic City, where it was pretty clear his casinos were quite mobbed up…

        BDR – I was hoping there was sufficient sarcasm dripping form the “poor lil donny” remark that I wouldn’t get called on it, lol. The NGC took all of that into account, following their investigation, and even though he was never publicly accused of or charged with “Collusion With Criminals,” there was no shortage of evidence, or witnesses.

        And it makes me laugh every time I hear about it, or even think it – that the NGC wants gambling to be “squeaky-clean.”

    Ideologically speaking, this should not affect his business with his Saudi bff’s. Regardless, next up, busted for selling liquor without a license. I’m beginning to feel sorry for the Onion.

    It is funny that having a Liquor License has a higher bar of acceptance than being President of the US does? Not that Cheeto boy is “presidential” in any respect.

      Yeah, we3ski – it seems that these “sinful activities” – gambling, drinking and whoring – need to be tightly-regulated, so that the general public can rest assured that at least SOME semblance of order is followed, and there’s no possible hint of impropriety.

      Now, politics……..THAT’S a whole different ballgame! Just as in Love & war, anything goes.</I. But that might change soon.
