For most presidents, optics are important. For a self-proclaimed conservative president who has managed to hold on to the evangelical vote despite affairs with adult film actresses and Playboy models while his wife was busy giving birth to their son, optics no longer seem to matter at all.

The Trump Golf Resort in Doral, Florida once famously hosted the PGA Tour, but that all ended when Trump went into politics, called Mexicans rapists, and vowed to stop an entire religion of people from traveling to the United States. No one wanted to be associated with him after that, but Trump has finally found a group of people who are willing to take the chance of sullying their reputations.
The Washington Post reports that:
‘President Trump’s golf resort in Doral, Fla., is scheduled to host a golf tournament Saturday put on by a Miami-area strip club, which will allow golfers to pay for a dancer to serve as their “caddy girl” while they play at the president’s club.
‘The “Shadow All Star Tournament” is organized by the Shadow Cabaret, a strip club in Hialeah, Fla. Emanuele Mancuso, Shadow Cabaret’s marketing director, said in a telephone interview that this was the first time the club had held a tournament at Trump Doral.’
For just $450, wealthy, married, white men like Trump can pretend to play golf while ogling young women, followed by the opportunity to watch those young women take off their clothes. It’s truly the kind of classy entertainment every evangelical voter dreams of, and the only kind of entertainers whose careers won’t be destroyed by an association with the president.
‘Mancuso said there would be no nudity at the resort. On the course, he said, the caddies would wear pink miniskirts and what he called “a sexy white polo.” Afterward, however, the golfers and the dancers would return to another venue — the cabaret itself — for what he described as a “very tasteful” burlesque show, which could involve nudity.’

Although Trump is violating the emolutments clause and profiting off his time in the White House, his golf resorts are losing money thanks to his disgusting, racist, xenophobic, and misogynistic statements and policies. Who else is as unconcerned about racism, xenophobia, and misogyny than wealthy strip club owners who make a living off of those things?
‘After Trump entered politics, however, the club lost the famous tournament, and its revenue began to decline, according to documents that Trump’s company provided to Miami-Dade County in a tax dispute.
‘Those documents showed that the club’s net operating income fell 69 percent between 2015 and 2017. The club’s revenue rebounded slightly in 2018, according to Trump’s financial disclosure forms.’
