Donald Trump remembered the nice Aretha Franklin today as somebody who “worked” for him. I don’t know who or what he’s talking about– and neither does he. She never, ever helped him in almost any capacity. (Trump told a press pool this morning “I wish to begin today by expressing my condolences towards the category of any person I knew well. She worked for me on numerous occasions.”
More importantly, Aretha was a lot against Trump’s policies and political platforms. She was against them a lot of she stopped keeping in the Trump International Hotel in Columbus Circle once he announced his presidential campaign.
The last time Aretha stayed in the Trump could have been Memorial Day, 2014. She cooked a Memorial Day barbeque during the two kitchens of her double suite to me, a couple of friends, her son Kecalf, and his awesome two teenage kids. She sent the entranceway man to purchase the base for bbq sauce. It had been so excellent that many of us joked she would definitely market “Aretha’s Hot Sauce.”
After that, Aretha stopped being at the Trump and gone to live in the Ritz Carlton, formerly the St. Moritz, on Central Park South. She made that her New york city headquarters and threw several parties there. The Ritz Carlton loved her. Aretha was certainly a supporter of Hillary Clinton, rather than Donald Trump.
