I was writing about yesterday’s crazy debate all day for work (including this failed attempt to have the four women accusing the Clintons sit in the Trump family box), so my brain doesn’t do hard news politics anymore for today.
Instead, I am just gonna share this pic I took at the Trump Tower Starbucks yesterday. And yes, I know that Starbucks writes the same comic in all their coffee stores, but I did find it added an extra layer of fun giving that orange-tanned Trump lives in the same building.
Back in November, I went to Trump Tower for the first time. I was intrigued to find that the Fifth Avenue skyscraper had become a place of pilgrimage for Trump supporters and Democrats alike. So I kept coming back.
Over the last couple of months, I interviewed countless of visitors, and started to realize how much of Donald Trump is in that building. And how much you can understand about Donald Trump and his campaign by simply walking through the lobby.
I describe all this and more in a feature that was published by Quartz today: We visited Trump Tower, and it perfectly epitomizes its eccentric, contradictory owner. Check it out.
