Trump Stumbles into ArtPrize Crowd

Before attending a fundraiser on Friday, Presidential nominee Donald Trump made an impromptu stop at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan, reports MLive.com. Apparently, Trump and his traveling companion, Rudy Giuliani, didn’t know that the museum was a popular venue of the annual ArtPrize international competition. “How come everyone’s here?” Trump said after arriving at the museum. “Everybody’s here.”

(Perhaps Trump’s museum visit inspired Sunday’s Salon.com article entitled “The art of the lie: The art forgery guide to Donald Trump’s tall tales.”)

ArtPrize winners are decided by ”public vote and expert jury,” which is somewhat analogous to the Presidential election’s popular vote and delegates. But for museum visitors trying to decide on which artwork to vote for, Trump turned the scene into chaos (watch the frenzy here).
