‘Artist’ Projects Provocative Message Onto Trump International Hotel In Nation’s Capital

Visitors to the Trump International Hotel in the nation’s capital on Monday Night might have thought they were being captured on hidden camera. There was an odd message projected onto the building, and that message indicated that visitors would be able to pay off the commander-in-chief by simply going inside. It turns out it wasn’t a desperate attempt for attention by a television show, but it was somewhat of a cry for help from artist and filmmaker Robin Bell.

Bell was the one behind the message that appeared on the hotel’s facade. He was across the street in a van to pull off his little stunt, and it certainly accomplished the goal of raising some eyebrows.

"Pay Trump bribes here," the sign read.

As Bell sees it, his sign will call attention to the fact that President Trump is currying favors from foreign leaders by providing hotel space for them just a few blocks from the White House. That’s certainly one way to look at it, but another scenario that makes sense is that these foreign leaders only want somewhere nice to stay after a long journey. However, that scenario doesn’t appear to have entered into Bell’s thought process.

"It's a pretty clear-cut example of impropriety. This is not like politics as usual. The rules and the lines are being pushed so far and this seemed to be so clear to me," Bell said.

Alright then. We’ll give Bell some credit for ingenuity on this one, but the stunt amounts to a large reach that has already been attempted and played out by other left-leaning detractors of Trump. There were plenty of theories that this was the latest sign that the sky was falling back when the hotel opened up, and those theories quickly fizzled out once new talking points began making the rounds.

Nonetheless, this will not be the last time that Bell will place projections on the hotel’s facade. In fact, this wasn’t even the first. He says that he’s done it five times already and that he’s also traveled to a Trump event that marked his 100th day in office in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to work his magic. During that little side trip, Bell projected a message of "100 days of pollution" onto a nearby building wall.

"There will be a lot more projections to come. We're going to keep going," he said.
