A Trump hotel permanently banned a reporter who took pics of a pest control gala.
“I went to the Trump International Hotel in Washington Thursday evening to do some investigating,” Forbes reporter Zach Everson reported. “The rates that night started at $2,400, well above the usual $400 to $700, and I wanted to find out why. Upon entering, I saw a big sign that read ‘Arrow Exterminators.’ I confirmed that the exterminators were customers rather than contractors, and, with that assignment checked, settled in at the bar to see if any swamp people of note were still showing up with Trump out of power.”
“While escorting me out, Wojciech explained that the ejection was for taking photos without permission. Once outside, he told me the ban was permanent, then declined to elaborate,” Everson reported. “Higher-ups in the Trump Organization also didn’t feel like explaining. When Forbes reached out to ask whether one of its reporters had, in fact, been banned from the hotel for life, a spokesperson did not respond.”
