Fox Host Melts Down Over Guggenheim’s Toilet Offer To Trump, Demands Resignation Of Their Curator [VIDEO]

Fox Business host Stuart Varney, who last appeared on JMG when he declared that he’ll probably tip food servers less if their minimum wage goes up, is ever so pissed at the Guggenheim for offering the White House a literally gold toilet instead of the requested Van Gogh painting.

“It’s a direct insult to the president and the first lady. It was a deliberate insult,” the Fox Business host fumed. “It’s not just a slap in the face for Trump, but it’s a slap in the face for the presidency and the country.”

Varney proceeded to call for the resignation of Guggenheim curator Nancy Spector, and he ranted and raved about how the incident shows the absolute contempt “New York elites” have for Trump.

Stuart Varney, of course, is a loaded British guy from Derbyshire who now works in Midtown Manhattan. So he might want to be a bit more specific about which horrible, nasty, terrible “elites” he’s talking about in the future.

  • Paula

    I’m not insulted. I think it was brilliant.

    • Rex

      Same here, but I also have a sense of humor.

      • Todd20036

        I think we can safely say that the only way the curator gets fired is if Trump directly orders it, and even then since we aren’t in a communistic society, the museum will reply, “Fuck off.”

        • MT YVR

          He won’t remember the name anyway so tell him the person was fired and wait a week. Hell, in a month they could meet him and he’d be fine, never knowing.

          • BlindBill

            besides, 45 probably will accept the loan of the golden throne … it is kinda cool

          • Lantor

            I was thinking that was right up Trump’s tacky alley, so to speak.

      • Palmer

        It’s solid 18 karat gold. Gold plating is for 45’s properties.

        • olandp

          For his homes, and brass.

      • Helen Damnation™

        The gold wouldn’t be worth a cool million if it was just gold plated. Just saying.

    • MT YVR

      I’d have rathered a golden bidet with the card “clean your talking hole” attached.

      And people tell me I’m unclear on how I feel about things…

    • GanymedeRenard

      Never have I liked trolling like at this occasion.

    • Gustav2

      I think LBJ, if the stories of him talking to staff while on the toilet are true, would have accepted it.

    • zhera

      The insult was the WH asking for the painting. As if there aren’t plenty of art in the WH already?

      • Harley

        That painting would have disappeared into one of Trumps properties, most likely Trump Tower Moscow.

    • narutomania

      It isn’t like the toilet wouldn’t fit in with his other all-gold gaudy decor, right?!

  • safari

    I suggest giving her a bonus.

  • HZ81

    Wow, really, Varney? It was a deliberate insult? You should be a detective!!

  • Max_1
  • Taylor

    Has anyone gotten Trump’s reaction? With his penchant for gilt he may take the Guggenheim up on its offer.

    • ClevelandJim

      Exactly. They’re obviously aware of his preferred style of interior design–tacky gold evvvvvverywhere.

    • RNegron

      rTump is an insult to the office of the president. Any insult to him upholds the office.

    • clay

      They/She could claim with some honesty that they thought he’d like the toilet even more.

      • Edmund Allin

        After Trump leaves office, I’m sure he’ll commission one for his home, even bigger and better.

    • Edmund Allin

      That’s the problem when the head of government is also the head of state. On our side of the pond we’re happy to poke fun at the Maybot (because she has power) *and* the Queen (because she has unelected privilege).

      Yay, monarchy. :p

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      But art is an act of expression. Art is to force the viewer to talk. Curators uphold that principle– and as citizens they have every right and should do. And she just made the museum bank to see the toilet. Ticket sales will go through the roof to see it. The piece itself forces the viewer to ask what is art (a la Duchamp) but also, what is America, hence its title. The tacky gold, the fact that yes, it was actually used to pass someone’s shit through (it’s functional), all of gold– so does it still glitter? Great analogy for the country. She did her job and did it well.

    I am amazed at the audacity of Trump asking to borrow a painting to decorate his living quarters. Hey, asshole, try buying your own art.

    • Christopher

      I think most of the Poster Stores closed down.

      • Well, there’s a Dick Blick Art Store right next to McDonalds. I’m sure his handlers could pick up some finger paint with his Happy Meal.

    • Stubenville

      This has been common practice in the past, but usually the loans are from the Smithsonian.

      • Paula

        Would you trust Trump? He would come up with some crap that it was a gift to him.

        • Stubenville

          Yea, they really should count the silverware when he moves out.

          • Max_1

      • JP

        Is it not possible he is admitting to a crime: having the real painting while the”original” was lifted by art thrived and replaced with a replica? It’s not out of the realm of possibility.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        Correction: He originally had in his plane. He thought he had an original Renoir In. His. Fucking. Plane. The man deserves no art.

      • josephsinger

        But Trump would never lie would he?

    • whollyfool

      I hear there’s a great painting of Trump hanging in his own properties that was paid for by his “charity” foundation.

      • clay

        two of them (at least), plus several fake magazine covers.

      • Paula Key

        Was it offset by Trump on Time Magazine (the golf club version)?

    • footwork61

      Congress provides funds for each new president to decorate the private quarters to their liking, within limits.

      In 1961 Congress enacted Public Law 87-286 declaring that the furnishings of the White House were the inalienable property of the White House, legislating the White House’s status as a museum and extending legal protection to donated period furnishings and all White House objects.

      In March 1964, to continue the efforts of Jacqueline Kennedy, President Lyndon Johnson issued Executive Order 11145, establishing the advisory Committee for the Preservation of the White House to guide the maintenance of the museum character of the State Rooms, and a permanent position for a White House curator.

      Rosalyn Carter helped found the White House Endowment Fund to help in the acquisition and restoration of furniture and art for the White House.

      • Paula

        That’s fine. Maybe he should put in a buy offer for it then. Perhaps the Guggenheim doesn’t want to donate the painting to the Trumps.

      • Lars Littlefield

        So, no mid century modern?

        • Ranger One

  • “New York elites”? No. 2/3 of all Americans have contempt for Donald.

    Know what’s truly contemptible? Asking a museum to take a unique and priceless work of art off public display to loan to a self-entitled plutocratic bastard to decorate his private bedroom, thereby denying everyone else in the world the right to see it for the duration.

    • Tor

      Has that commonly been done by the White House in the past?

      • No.

        • Cuberly Deux

          I can’t imagine the Obamas going through the Gugg & regarding it as a consignment or artwork rental shop.

          • True. Also, I believe the majority of decent adult human beings would immediately see the inappropriateness of even asking for private use of otherwise public art.

          • Cuberly Deux

            It may not be the popular opinion, and the gold toilet was funny, but the Gugg did have the option to politely decline.

            But then I think this is just me having coarse discourse fatigue.

        • clay

          Doesn’t the White House already have a cooperative agreement with the Corcoran?

    • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

      …and as was saliently pointed out, the Gugg would NEVER see it again.

      • The_Wretched

        He’s reneged on every single deal he’s every made. His legal history is of one vendor after another asking for payment of debts. Given that history, it’d be criminal negligence to loan him any artwork. Museum’s have rules and insurers who vette all that.

      • jerry

        He would probably return a print to them, like his supposed Renoir.

    • Ranger One

      He didn’t want it for the art! He wanted it solely so he could brag to visitors how important and loved he is that they loaned it to him.

    • thatotherjean

      If he really wants that image, I’m sure he could afford a very good copy. He already has several such paintings, that he pretends are originals.

            Yup. Hammer was hesitant to take on the role because of nudity in the novel.

    Wait a second. A dishonest liar makes an obvious try to steal a Van Gogh (you know he’d walk out with it and claim he didn’t know what happened).

  • Max_1

    Dear Varney,
    It is a slap to the face of the Presidency and democracy when the person who occupies it is a known philanderer, swindler and racist. When that occupant refuses to pursue securing our election systems and avoids any attempt to stomp out propaganda. When that occupant feeds the sycophants who grovel on every word he says with words that undermine the very Constitution he swore an Oath to uphold. When he lays out a course to undermine the Justice and Law of this Nation by demeaning the FBI, courts and Judges.

    But you go on Mr. Varney, keep telling us what good upstanding people do and how that bothers you and makes you upset to the point you need to break away from your shenanigans of telling the rural worker how the stock market rising makes John Boy wealthy when he has no money to invest, that he too needs to be morally upset. Go on Mr. Varney, keep the propaganda alive.

    New York Elites, you say? LOL. Meet your President!

    • Reality.Bites

      You mean he’s going to stop defecating in public? Got an estimated date for the change?

  • -M-

    No, it’s just a well deserved slap in the face for Trump.

  • Jim Maloney

    So, using that logic, Trump should’ve resigned shortly post-birth(er).

  • Harveyrabbit
    • Hey, it’s now abject art. Trump finally achieved something.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abjection#In_art

    • thatotherjean

      Trump would probably refuse to touch it. The original article said that the golden toilet had been part of an “interactive exhibit,” placed in a restroom on the 5th floor, for the public to use. He’s such a germophobe, he’d be afraid of catching something from the peons.

      • Harveyrabbit

        That would be a serious conundrum for him. He’s clearly obsessed with shiny gold and valuable trinkets and showing them off to anyone who’d look but also a germophobe. Which side would win out?

        • Harveyrabbit

  • AdamTh

    WhyTF would anyone let Donnie “borrow” a Van Gogh? They would never get it back from him….

    • clay

      Why would anyone let any of that circle “barrow” any painting, when one the stories that paints Wynn in the best light involves him sticking his elbow through a Picasso?

  • Non-American piping in here. To the rest of us watching in horror at what’s going on in your country, this isn’t a “slap in the face for the presidency and the country” as Trump doesn’t represent the presidency nor the country. The insult is directed squarely at one person alone (and maybe most of his horrible children).

    • -M-

      Thank all of you for not writing us all off.

    • The_Wretched

      Thank you. I don’t blame folks for not getting that distinction though.

    • Reality.Bites

      I think people in most countries – certainly the UK, Canada and Australia – find the notion that heads of government are entitled to ANYTHING from the people is absurd. Especially respect.

      The individual perhaps. NEVER the office. They work for us. And both the people and their own parties have no qualms about firing them in the most humiliating ways imaginable

  • Dot Beech

    Fuck that old man. I demand his resignation.

    Of course the Guggenheim should honor the President with art he can understand and appreciate. Something in concert with his own view of the world and his aspirations. And the curator nailed it.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Surely Alice Walton can spare a little something-something from Crystal Bridges?

    Alice? Hello?

    Of course it’s disrespectful. That’s the point, numb nuts.

  • Moebym of the Returners

    The museum doesn’t loan their paintings to just anyone – not even the president, and especially not THIS president, who is about as cultured as a baboon is and flings as much poop. And as far as respect goes, they treated him with exactly the amount of respect he deserves: none.

    Your arms must be tired from carrying all that water for the president, Stuart.

    Why’s this Varney fellow talk about “faces”. He seems to have an odd way of using toilets, when he associates a toilet with a slap in the face.
    (Side not, when he is British, than you should be careful with using “pissed”, that doesn’t mean “angry” there. He sounded like an idiot, but a sober idiot.)

  • Outlaw Woman

  • Canadian Observer

    Not totally off topic (but on the way there) – does anyone know if there are any fact based studies as to whether or not gold is a more efficient material to make toilets out of than porcelain? You know, with little charts detailing viscosity and the rate at which feces adheres to the bowl?

    • The_Wretched

      that much gold is very heavy and would slump.

      • Helen Damnation™

        I’ve asked my friend, lesbian and master-jeweler Laurie (LaurieStetzler.com) about this. Stay tuned.

        ps She’s got some great deals on her own, hand-crafted fine art jewelry. check it out!

      • Treant

        I’m pretty sure gold leaf, gold plate, or gold fill, would work the same (stickiness speaking) as solid gold.

        So we could make the base out of porcelain and use leaf, or a light base metal and plate or fill it…

        • The_Wretched

          I agree. It should be pretty easy to clean with a soft cloth.

          • Treant

            Except that gold does discolor; I have to clean rings I don’t wear for a very long while that are in open air. But that’s by gold purity and 24K gold leaf should be immune to it.

            Er…except maybe with heavy sulfur compounds or things that are very acidic. I’m not sure I’d want to use that in a toilet, now that I think about it a bit.

      • (((GC)))

        It’s an 18K alloy, if I recall correctly.

        • BobSF_94117

          So made for peasants you’re trying to say?

          • (((GC)))

            Made to hold up under its own weight.

    • Treant

      I have a feeling that glazed porcelain combines low friction with low cost to make a very good toilet material. 🙂

      Given that I’ve had things get stuck to glazed spoons (I do use some artsy clay stuff sometimes), plastic, stainless steel, and silver, I can’t see that gold would likely be that much different…

    • BobSF_94117

      I think the big problem is that it would be really cold to sit on.

    • misterjack

      I saw a close-up of the gold toilet bowl on another site and there were signs of wear around the interior rim, like rust.

  • lymis

    I’d like the records of his outrage at the whole birther thing, and about just about anything else FOX news said about Obama for the last 8 years.

  • Uncle Mark

    i suspect the way Varney publicly expresses his disdain for food servers, he’d be lucky to have his meals served to him in a golden toilet. I suspect the next cake he orders could well end up being a urinal cake

    Must we now not insult the king…err…president? These people are happily leading us straight into an authoritarian state. I noticed it with Trump’s health report. The Doctor said, and I paraphrase, that Trump has good genes and if he had changed his diet only a little, could live to be 200 years old. That’s sycophant-speech and the kind of thing they have been doing with the Kim family in N. Korea for decades.

    • The_Wretched

      That sycophant also called Trump’s body a gift from god.

      Given Dumpy’s statements last January, Mueller would have to be sitting on his fucking thumb for a year to just be coming to this conclusion.

      • thatotherjean

    Varney never cared about insulting a sitting president when that president was a Democrat. 8 years of “terroist fist bump, fake birth certificate, Muslim brotherhood” rhetoric might make a person think Fox never really believed the “getting behind the president is our patriotic duty” stuff it peddled during the Bush years. What does it say about us that Fox can deride “New York elites” like trump isn’t and never was one of them or that Fox has convinced millions of poor blue collar southerners that a billionaire trust fund baby from New York is just like them?
