The Whiskey Squirmish

Donald Trump Acts Like Petulant Child To Surprise Of Absolutely No One

It's a Beautiful SnitAs if there were any doubt that Donald Trump is the world’s richest cranky toddler, the useless sack of bile is now pursuing a vendetta against the distiller of Glenfiddich whiskey after the company sponsored a contest that honored an opponent of a golf resort that Trump plans to build in Scotland. Trump’s latest case of the whining spitties erupted when Michael Forbes, a “quarryman and salmon fisherman” who has refused to sell his 28-acre property to Trump, was named “Top Scot” in a contest sponsored by the whiskey brand. In retaliation, Trump announced that his ptomaine-factory resorts and casinos will no longer sell any whiskeys made by Glenfiddich’s parent company, William Grant & Sons. Leaving aside the peevish overreaction, we question the wisdom of reducing the number of disinfecting agents available at Trump properties.

In exactly the sort of thing that you would expect Donald Trump to say, the overcompensating narcissist spun out a conjecture that the distiller’s dumb publicity-stunt contest, which it has sponsored for fifteen years, was actually conceived and executed in reaction to Trump Himself, because, of course, the successful whiskey-making concern was jealous of the pure concentrated white dwarf star of brilliance that is Trump, who recently began marketing his own brand of single-malt firewater:

“Glenfiddich should be ashamed of themselves for granting this award to Forbes, just for the sake of publicity.

“Glenfiddich is upset that we created our own single malt whisky using another distillery, which offers far greater products. People at our clubs do not ask for Glenfiddich, and I make a pledge that no Trump property will ever do business with Glenfiddich or William Grant & Sons.

“I hereby call for a boycott on drinking Glenfiddich products because there is no way a result such as this could have been made by the Scottish people.”

Poor Donald Trump! The poor man can’t even get pretend elections to go the way he wants! At least this time he didn’t call for a revolution. Still, the man does have an uncanny talent for saying stuff that simply reeks of un-self-aware grandiosity, doesn’t he?

After suggesting that the voting for Forbes had been fixed by “a small group of detractors” casting multiple votes, he continued: “Glenfiddich’s choice of Michael Forbes, as Top Scot, will go down as one of the great jokes ever played on the Scottish people and is a terrible embarrassment to Scotland.”

Yes, Donnie. It certainly is embarrassing. But only to someone with the slightest sense of shame.

In a side-note to the story, Mr. Forbes’s anti-Trump stand has been embraced by filmmaker and House of Lords member David Puttnam, who produced Bill Forsyth’s 1983 film Local Hero, a tale of Scottish eccentrics who successfully resist a rapacious American tycoon’s plans to buy up and exploit their property. It’s a pretty good movie, but Donald Trump is no Burt Lancaster.

We suppose that, because of this sleazy hit piece, there’s no chance His Royal Hairness will stock our excellent line of high-quality Wonkette tees, hats, and mugs.

      Great! Now you've given him an idea for a new reality show: America's Next Top Twat

      Thanks, man…

  • edgydrifter

    Trump wagging his finger at somebody else's publicity stunt is like a giant turd criticizing an onion for stinking up the joint.

    • CindynEncinitas

      Methinks he dost protest too much.

  • mrpuma2u

    Oh yeah, yet another "good idea" from the Donald. Fuck with the Scots. Worked out real well for the Roman Empire. What a dumbshit. If I wasn't so pathetically strapped for cash I would go buy a case of Glenfiddich today. Maybe I'll get one of those teeny bottles.

    • Terry

      I would, too, except that I'm currently working my way through an absolutely fabulous bottle of 12 yr old Yamazaki.

      • NellCote71

        I thought you ride Yamazakis not drink them.

    • http://wonkette.com Mrspanky

      Goddamn right! And its off to the hootcheteria for a fifth of Glenfiddich!

      Trump is a jackass, but a useful jackass!

      • LesBontemps

        You need a reason to drink?

    • viennawoods13

      My husband poured himself a glass when he heard it last night, from his own teeny bottle of Glenfiddich.

  • elviouslyqueer

    Tacky, whiny titty-baby is tacky.

  • smellypossum

    I'd pay money to see Trump get an old-fashioned beat-down by a true Scot.

    Any 8-year old from Glasgow could do the job.

    • BadKitty904

      I'm sure Trump's egocentric publicity stunt will work out just about as well as that terrorist attack on the Glasgow Airport back in '07…where the locals, standing about the airport terminal at the time of the attack, beat the living shit out of the terrorists, then held them 'til the police arrived.

      The Scots have been kicking assorted asses for over 2,000 years…

      • HistoriCat

        Yes but most of that ass-kicking has been against their traditional enemies, the Scots.

      • mull_man

        It's arses, mah mukker, arses.

      Donald, there's a Black Watch regiment outside wants a wee word wi' ye..

    • rocksout

      Right you are, laddy

  • http://rightthinkingamerican.blogspot.com johnnyzhivago

    Sounds like the movie "Local Hero" except in that film everyone was actually kind of interesting and well meaning, as opposed to Trump who is a boorish and self absorbed shmuck.

    • BadKitty904

      Great flick, tho. "How do you do business with a man who has no door?"

      • http://rightthinkingamerican.blogspot.com johnnyzhivago

        Agreed!!

      • viennawoods13

        I adore that film. So many classic lines, all that wonderful deadpan comedy. Bill Forsyth did a lovely gem of an Xmas film too, Comfort and Joy.

  • WhatTheHolyHeck

    You'd think the Scots would embrace Trump more, in light of that Deerhound on his scalp.

  • sewollef

    AdChoices video ad on this page makes me fucking crazy!!

    It auto runs a video and gives you no choice to at least kill the volume. That is disrespectful, particularly when you're at work [as I am], and guarantees I won't click through.

    Oh yes, Donald Trump…. I'll be right back.

    • commiegirl99

      But if you click through, you can send me the URL, so I can murder it. They are not supposed to be doing that.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      If you click the ad, you can pause it, at least on my machine. It still autostarts but for a stopgap…

      • sewollef

        I tried that and it took me to the site being advertised. Another talking site. Damn it.

        Once it's finished its 15-second cycle I can pause it as the controls appear, but until that point I get no video controls at all…. and in a nice quiet design studio, my boss doesn't like it too much.

        Annoyingly, I know how to make video controls appear and slide out of view on sites, but this is just plain naughty.

    Companies granting awards to people for publicity? GASP! Those monsters!

    • PugglesRule

      It's exactly the opposite of companies running reality TV shows for publicity, right? Right?

      • NellCote71

        I bet Michael Forbes is demanding that the Prime Minister produce his birth certificate, and Trump finds it treasonous. That's what I bet.

  • Tengu

    Seriously, how small does your penis have to be to be this massively insecure?

      Come on, look at his toupee. Look at it.

      Now do we really need to ask how insecure this man is?

    • bearperney

      I'm thinking somebodies testicles did not descend.

  • Beowoof

    Wow, that was really clever on Glen Fiddich's part, as now I feel compelled to head over to my local liquor store and purchase and consume more this fine brand. It is funny how recognizing that big douche bag will react like a big douche bag will lead to more sales. Kudo's to Glen Fiddich.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    How many fucking golf courses does Scotland need, anyway?

    • SavageDrummer

      See why it is best not to piss off the ponies?

      Mitt Romney pissed off the ponies, and look how his year turned out.

  • HRH_Maddie

    I'm going to start telling children that if you say "Glenfiddich" 3 times in a row Donald Trump will appear. That's way scarier than Bloody Mary.

    ….And speaking of which, it's 5 o'clock somewhere.

    • emmelemm

      Not to mention a Bloody Mary is a noon-time drink anyway.

      • HRH_Maddie

        Too true. Plus, it's made with tomato juice, so it's practically health food!

  • BaldarTFlagass

    So, is he okay with The Glenlivet?

    • http://www.wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Let's hope not, I like The Glenlivet.

  • pepperpat

    "…the overcompensating narcissist spun out a conjecture that the distiller’s dumb publicity-stunt contest, which it has sponsored for fifteen years, was actually conceived and executed in reaction to Trump Himself…"

    I, for one, certainly support more executions in reaction to Trump Himself.

  • gullywompr

    What, is Twilight Sparkle interviewing to be his new hairpiece?

  • sewollef

    It’s a pretty good movie, but Donald Trump is no Burt Lancaster.

    Yeh, but at least Burt Lancaster has the decency to be dead…. and thus only plays a non-speaking part in the whole proceedings.

  • Terry

    "Trump’s latest case of the whining spitties erupted when Michael Forbes, a “quarryman and salmon fisherman” who has refused to sell his 28-acre property to Trump, was named “Top Scot” in a contest sponsored by the whiskey brand. "

    I wish I'd have known about the contest. I'd have voted for Mr. Forbes as many times as possible.

    • CindynEncinitas

      I'm sure Mr. Forbes is just chill as hell and could really give two shits about the Donald anyway.

  • YouFail4eva

    So, how confident are we that Trump's hair isn't in fact sentient and has been controlling the Donald all this time? Obviously only a lump of hair would be as assholish and fucktardy as what we are seeing. A real human being wouldn't be nearly this pathetic.

  • Abernathy

    I am shocked that he hasn't yet demanded to see Forbes' long-form Scottish birf certificate; can't be Top Scot if you're a secret Kenyan.

    • LesBontemps

      You're saying he's no true Scotsman?

      • Abernathy

        I'll take his word for it, but Trump will probably want to check under his kilt.

    • NellCote71

      Sorry. I did not read through the chain before posting my own birthing take. I bow to your place in line.

      • Abernathy

        That's not the Trump way!

    • CindynEncinitas

      I hope he's a Scotsman's Scotsman = Pict. Proto-Celtic, matrilineal, face-painting (blue), jewelry-wearing, vicious motherfuckers on whom the movie Conan the Barbarian is loosely based and from whom I am proudly descended.

  • lefty74

    Trump can't piss standing up. He has to stoop. He has tucked what little manhood he has.

  • SavageDrummer

    Too bad Glenfiddich is such vile Scotch (at least the 12 year old variety), otherwise I'd buy some out of spite, but I seriously cannot subject my refined palate to such awfulness!

          Lagavulin 16 is remarkably consistent. I love Talisker, Laphroaig (but the cask strength is like a punch in the throat), Caol Ila 12, Ardbeg is wonderful although I wish it had some later expressions.

      • mull_man

        Lugavulin 16 yo, or a Tobermory 15 (as long as you're buying)

    • Tundra Grifter

      Scotch, like asparagus and anal sex, is definately an acquired taste.

The entire world is practically unanimous that you're the biggest globetrotting pestilence this side of the bubonic plague.

      Seriously … the fact that he's gone public with being batshit crazy can't be helping his business. Who would want to invest a substantial sum of money with a certifiable loon?

    Looks like the Donald makes friends overseas as easily as Mittens.

    Keep talking, dickwads.

    Damn, I hate whiskey, but now I'm thinking about it.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      It's definitely an acquired taste. When I was younger, I always thought Scotch tasted like iodine, and that Jack Daniels and Southern Comfort ruled the roost. I think I was in my mid to late 30s when one day I said to myself, "Man, I think I'd like to have a taste of Scotch." The rest is history.

  • Redhead

    I want to make fun of Trump, but I'm too distracted by that yarn-ball on top of his head. WTF?

  • sullivanst

    Well, at least I now know that Trump has put his worthless name to a relabelled Scotch, and can make sure that I don't accidentally buy any, not that there was ever much chance of that, what with me never having seen it in stores, or advertised anywhere.

    However, where was David Puttnam last year, and is Mark Knopfler available for the soundtrack?

    Donald fucking TRUMP is criticizing someone for seeking publicity?

    ROTFLMAO!!! Help, I'm gasping for air here!

  • Goonemeritus

    Trump’s actions this year taken as a whole can only be seen as vandalism against his own personal brand. As a business man I find this shocking when you stop to consider that the Trump brand is all he has to sell. It would not surprise me if his missteps were taught in business schools as a cautionary tale from this time forward.

    • sullivanst

      Not quite the full Ratner, but getting close.

      • emmelemm

        "Ratner has said in his defence that it was a private function which he did not expect to be reported, and that his remarks were not meant to be taken seriously."

        Oh my God, he's Mitt Romney!

        (Seriously, I'd never actually heard of this; was interesting Wiki entry.)

        • Biel_ze_Bubba

          "Oh my God, he's Mitt Romney! "

          He's pretty much any Rethuglican politician: pandering in public to people he despises in quiet rooms.

    Glenfiddich. Just the latest in a long line that realize a public excoriation by the Donald is an always good.

    • Doktor Zoom

      I keep hoping he'll come after Wonkette…

      • BornInATrailer

        That would be fantastic. The Wonkette Twitter feed should include @realDonaldTrump for every Trump story. That has at least got to be the starting point.

  • Mittaplasia

    We need one of those wild Amish boys to hold him down and cut his hair.

    you know what i'd love to see? i'd love to see donald trump dumped in the middle of somalia pirate land (let's say Harardhere b/c really, is there a BETTER name for an actual pirate city?) with no entourage, no cell phone, no car, no gun, no cash, one credit card and a nametag that says 'IMPORTANT AMERICAN DO NOT TOUCH HAIR' in somali.

    i'd like to see what happens next.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      I'd give him cash, and advertise the fact.

  • Bluestem

    While we're in the highlands, can we drop the Donald off at Brigadoon? I think maybe it would be ok if he bloviated only one day every hundred years.

  • Ansnarkist

    I know what's going in my eggnog this year.

    • bearperney

      Well, that'll be some damn fine eggnog!

    "Glenfiddich should be ashamed of themselves for granting this award to Forbes, just for the sake of publicity." said Donald McTrump, publicity whore.

  • bikerlaureate

    1983, "Local Hero."
    1997, "Top Scot" contest begins.

    Well, yeah, this is clearly a conspiracy to humiliate Trump. There could be no other reason for either prior event to occur.

      Must be the same jokers who planted Obama's birth announcements. Clever bastards!

      Yikes. I'm beginning to see why El Trumpet turned teabagger: he reached the point where nobody else on the planet was stupid enough to be impressed by him.

  • larrykat

    If I were but a quarryman and salmon fisherman…

  • christianmuslin

    If first prize is a stay at the Trump Hotel and Casino, then I will opt for the Wonkette suite: one night at the Bed on the Roof Inn with a single roll of Costco paper TOWELS on the bathroom wall midway between shower and toilet but reachable from neither and with a Kino ticket on the bed placed there by the turn down maid.

    • bikerlaureate

      Second prize is two stays at the Trump Hotel and Casino…

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Make it a Kino ticket and a turn down maid placed on the bed, and I'm all in.

    Residents fear Donald Trump will launch another eviction onslaught
    October 28, 2012

    HOME owners who refused to move for Donald Trump’s millionaire’s playground yesterday insisted they are ready for anything the bullying tycoon can throw at them.

    Horrified TV viewers last week watched Michael Forbes, Susan Munro and David Milne endure months of hell as Trump’s team tried to force them to make way for his golf course and hotel development at Menie, in Aberdeenshire.

    The documentary, You’ve Been Trumped, prompted a furious response against the New York tycoon’s bully boy tactics and condemnation of the council, police and Government for turning a blind eye to the homeowners’ plight.

    Yesterday, they vowed to fight any further attempts to drive them out and bulldoze their homes.

    But they remain in fear that the loud-mouthed billionaire will return with compulsory purchase orders to force them to leave.

      Who do you think it really belongs to?

  • drbill0620

    I think his hair is fermenting and he was afraid they's want to use him to make a vat of booze…

  • JohnnyBrooklyn

    On the plus side, Donald's latest rant is just stupid. Previously his rants were both racist and stupid. So that's progress I guess.

  • lulzmonger

    Awww, did the big bad Repo Depot take away poor widdle Man-Child's hugbox AGAIN?
