A couple of days ago Donald Trump made a big deal of showing the press a big pile of Trump Steaks. Just another lie. NBC News reports:
Donald Trump has a beef with people who question whether he’s in the meat business, but what he peddled at a victory rally this week doesn’t appear to be Trump Steaks.
The trademark the Republican presidential front-runner took on Trump Steaks in August 2006 was canceled eight years later, in December 2014, according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The supposed Trump Steaks that the GOP front runner trotted out Tuesday after notching primary victories in Mississippi and Michigan are actually from Bush Brothers Provisions, a longtime West Palm Beach meat purveyor, according to the company. (It’s not connected to Trump’s ousted rival Jeb Bush.)
It is not unusual for meat to be purchased wholesale and rebranded, but that did not appear to be the case with the meat presented Tuesday. In fact, some of the meat on the butcher board was still wrapped in Bush Brothers packaging. None of the meat appeared to be in Trump Steaks packaging.
RELATED: The magazine Trump waves about below also isn’t actually Trump Magazine – it’s an annual in-house title placed in his hotels’ rooms. And it’s not owned by Trump. The original was a quarterly briefly sold at newsstands. Oh, and Trump Airlines, which he claims to have sold at a great profit? It actually defaulted to his creditors, who then sold it to USAir.
