Donald Trump continues to prove to the world that his skin is just too thin to be the president of the United States.
Trump is so egotistical that he can’t take even the slightest bit of criticism. Anytime something is said that he doesn’t like or agree with, you can be sure that a tweetstorm will follow.
Remaining true to form, Trump lashed out against Vanity Fair magazine on Twitter after they published an unflattering review of his Trump Tower Grill. Actually, “unflattering” may be an understatement, considering Vanity Fair’s story headline: “Trump Grill Could Be the Worst Restaurant in America.”
The article rips into the subpar dining experience at Trump Grill, making it clear that the classy and upscale standards Trump boasts of offering are as nonexistent as his political background.
“The restaurant features a stingy number of French-ish paintings that look as though they were bought from Home Goods. Wall-sized mirrors serve to make the place look much bigger than it actually is. The bathrooms transport diners to the experience of desperately searching for toilet paper at a Venezuelan grocery store.”
The publication also didn’t spare any feelings when discussing the food, which was deemed mediocre at best.
“Our table nevertheless ordered the Ivanka’s Salad, a chopped approximation of a Greek salad, smothered in melting goat cheese and dressing and missing the promised olives, that seemed unlikely to appetize a SoulCycle-obsessed, smoothie-guzzling heiress. (Instead, it looked like a salad made by someone who believes that rich women only eat vegetables.)”
Despite the fact that the grill doesn’t live up to its outrageous prices, the article did note that the establishment was packed full of people and makeshift tables were erected just to accommodate everyone.
Trump’s response doesn’t directly address any of the claims made by Vanity Fair, but rather attempts to discredit the magazine altogether by calling it out as a dying publication and declaring its editor, Graydon Carter, as talentless.
Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine. Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 15, 2016
One would think that as Inauguration Day swiftly approaches, Trump would have much bigger fish to fry than picking a fight with Vanity Fair. But, what else would you expect from someone who held a meeting with leaders of the press and spent most of it complaining about the use of photos that expose his double chin?
