The Evangelicals who helped elect Trump have demonstrated an incredible ability to ignore all of his myriad sins, from his bragging about sexual assault, to his numerous infidelities, to his cruelty towards people of color. It seems there is nothing that can shake their unwavering support of this man, a fact he seems acutely aware of since his golf resort in Doral, Florida is set to host a golf tournament charity fundraiser put together by The Shadow Cabaret, a strip club.
Golfers will have the opportunity to hire exotic dancers as their “caddy girls” while they play The Washington Post reports. While there won’t be nudity on the actual golf course, there might be some at the after-party held at the Shadow Cabaret’s establishment.
Obviously, this is the kind of behavior that would normally enrage the religious right and work them into a pearl-clutching tizzy, but since they’ve proven unable to condemn Trump for anything, it’s safe to presume they’ll simply turn a blind eye.
Even so, the tournament is proving to not be without headaches. The Washington Post is now reporting that the nonprofit Miami Allstars Foundation, which was the organization intended to receive money from the event, has now pulled out of it altogether.
Carlos Alamilla from Miami Allstars spoke to the Post on the phone and said his organization had not been paying close attention to the details of the fundraiser or the advertising around it. When the Post called him on Tuesday to ask about the event, they filled him in on the details. He had been unaware that the Miami Allstars Foundation logo had been placed in ads informing golfers they could hire strippers as caddies or any of the other details about what the event was.
“You can’t mix kids with sex. It just doesn’t jibe,” Alamilla said to Talking Points Memo.
This morning, Alamilla called The Shadow Cabaret to tell him the charity was backing out and that they should cancel it. The Trump Organization did not respond to requests for comment from the post but defended the event yesterday because they believe the money was intended for an admirable cause.
