Donald Trump Jr. took to his Instagram account over the weekend to post a photo of himself with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with a cookie which showed a distorted version of President Obama’s face. The Trump family’s obsession with Obama was on full display so a backlash ensued over Junior mocking his father’s predecessor.
The restaurant’s owner, Stephan Courseau, responded on Le Bilboquet’s Facebook account, saying,”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. Unfortunately, I was not working yesterday and could not intervene in the unfortunate circumstances that unfolded but I believe I owe you an explanation and an apology,” he continued.
“Someone that attended the party brought in an outside cake for Donald Trump Jr.’s upcoming birthday and we are not sure who that was,” he wrote. “Both Donald Trump Jr. and Ted Cruz took pictures with the cake and posted on social media outlets.”
“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,” he wrote. “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,” he continued. “We both believe in universal values of love, respect and tolerance. Values that we have found within the Dallas community. Our friends and patrons represent a wide spectrum of American beliefs including: Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. What brings them together is the same belief that we can live together with love, respect and tolerance. I made America my home a long time ago because of these values that embody the real American dream.”
Junior’s post on Sunday read, in part, “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.”
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. ??????? #tx #texas #birthday #tedcruz #obama #cake
The restaurant owner’s Facebook post appears to have been deleted. Junior just forced a business owner to apologize for his pathetic behavior while throwing him in the middle of his partisan slap fight. We understand the Trumps are jealous of the Obamas and they have good cause to be. Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling at this point in his presidency.
Imagine your father getting a new job so you immediately start shitposting about the previous employee. That’s what Junior does. SAD!
