In a couple of weeks, Donald Trump Jr. will be turning 40. In preparation for the big day, some of his friends decided to get him an early treat and gave him a cookie cake with the likeness of Barack Obama done in icing. At least we think it’s Obama; the only resemblance is that the colors are from the iconic “Hope” poster.
On Sunday, Trump Jr. was at a Dallas restaurant, Le Bilboquet, and posted several silly pictures posing with the Obama cookie to Instagram. One of them was with Sen. Ted Cruz. The photo was captioned:
With friends like these... some good friends decided that while my birthday is not for 2 weeks that they would get me an early 40th birthday cake. And what birthday is complete without an Obama cake? I figured it was so good that I would have to share it with Ted.
Hey, that’s racist! Yes, posing with a cookie decorated with a U.S. president has been perceived by the Left as bigotry. And although the goofy gift had nothing to do with the restaurant, Le Bilbouqet’s owner issued a denouncement of the photo he felt “spread hatred.”
“Let me be clear, I share your indignation without any reservation,” Stephan Courseau stated. “Both Donald Trump Jr. and Ted Cruz were attending a birthday celebration of one of our regular patrons who rented out our venue for a private event. The party was not for either one of them nor was it any kind of partisan rally.”
The statement continued:
“We at Le Bilboquet feel betrayed and sad. Restaurant business is about creating a hospitable environment for all, a non-partisan, non-politicized, nondiscriminatory and respectful environment. The fact that guests decided to use our restaurant as a platform to promote, disrespect, and spread hatred goes against everything we stand for. On a personal note, I am French and my wife is Mexican. We both believe in universal values of love, respect and tolerance. … I am truly sorry that such distasteful events happened at our venue and that these circumstances brought me to write this statement today.”
It must be exhausting to be perpetually outraged by the littlest things.
We hand the conch over to Jimmy Boy, a commenter at The Washington Times, who gets the final word on this matter:
“Let's not let that owner feel betrayed. Let's not ever frequent his establishment so his snowflake feelings will never be hurt again.”
Now, that’s a great idea. Let’s show Courseau that we will not stand for this by never frequenting the place this cookie crime happened.
