“This location is a shithole.”
The five-word pronouncement looked like a forecast above the entranceway at Washington, D.C.’s Trump International Hotel on Saturday night. The forecast likewise consisted of an arrow pointing straight at the hotel’s entryway and a crowd of poop emoji.
The forecast is, obviously, a recommendation to Trump’s at-best-questionable, at-worst-openly-racist remark describing Haiti, El Salvador, and the amount overall of Africa as “shithole countries” throughout a current migration policy conference. Naturally, Trump has actually taken a great deal of criticism for the remark.
Robin Bell, an artist and filmmaker, appeared to take credit for the forecast on his Twitter feed.
Bell is no complete stranger to object forecasts, especially throughout the Trump age, as his Bell Visuals site programs. And while he didn’t overtly state “Yup, this is mine,” the forecast — from its sassy voice to the text typeface utilized — is clearly his work.
