In the wake of his failed $5 million offer to Barack Obama to release his college transcripts prior to the presidential election, Donald Trump is now locking horns with Glenfiddich, the Scottish whisky distiller.
Why, you may ask? Because Glenfiddich sponsored an award ceremony that honored a Scottish farmer who refused to sell his land to Trump, land that Trump had earmarked for a golf course. (Trump built his links anyway, but it skirts the farmer’s land).
In retaliation, Glenfiddich as well as every brand of whisky sold by parent company William Grant & Sons has been banned from being served at Trump Hotel Collection properties.
“Glenfiddich should be ashamed of themselves for granting this award to (Michael) Forbes, just for the sake of publicity,” The Donald told The Guardian, a British newspaper.
Forbes’ opposition to the development of Trump International Golf Links prompted his winning of the ‘Top Scot’ award at the recent Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland ceremony.
Methinks that despite his millions, his single-digit handicap and that full head of golden rabbit fur, Donald Trump is not a happy camper. Personally, I believe he and Herman Cain would have made a helluva GOP ticket, but then, a landslide loss may have put him in an even deeper funk than he’s now in.
