Satirical TrumpHotels.Org Trolls Donald Trump With Imagery Of Caged Migrants
Under “Child Accommodations,” the website, started by lawyer Loren Collins, displays a photo of young immigrants in a cage.
Loren Collins, an Atlanta-based attorney, recently purchased Trumphotels.org but, instead of showing off President Donald Trump’s numerous luxury properties — like Trumphotels.com does — Collins’ website features images of immigrants being held in detention centers.
The Trump administration’s aggressive immigration policies have left many disturbed and have prompted numerous protests. Collins is using internet satire as a means of resistance, it would seem.
The featured “Child Accommodations” is accompanied by a photo of children being held in a cage, as seen in the screenshot above. A “Thoughts From Our Manager” section displays some of Trump’s most incendiary comments regarding immigration.
Website categories include “The Blacks,” “The Hispanics,” “The Muslims,” and “Very Fine People,” the latter of which refers to Trump’s statements following the killing of a counter-protestor at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year.
President Trump famously described both sides as having “very fine people.”
The website, which launched on June 21, has already led to the creation of a Yelp profile in its honor, and Collins is planning to collect testimonials from those who have spent time in detention centers and post them as Yelp reviews, Atlanta magazine reports.
Collins, who spent $16 in total for the domain, has received an anonymous offer to sell the site for $200, which he reportedly turned it down.
“I wouldn’t rule out selling it, though,” Collins told Atlanta magazine. “For instance, if Trump himself wanted to buy it, I might be willing to part with it in exchange for 10 years of his tax returns and the termination of 25 [non-disclosure agreements] of my choosing.”
Collins’ website was reportedly inspired in part by a June 18 tweet from Congressman Tim Kaine, who posted a number of candid photos taken from inside detention centers alongside the caption, “the real Trump hotel.”
