Trump's Scottish neighbors taunt him with Mexican flags








half-dozen of Donald Trump's Scottish neighbors taunted him on Saturday by flying Mexican flags for his visit, but the famed real estate developer chalked it up to sour grapes.
The flags flapped in the Aberdeenshire wind before Trump landed on the 10th fairway of his International Golf Links, and photographers snapped pictures of flag after flag, including one hung beneath Scotland's own colors, seemingly mocking the billionaire.
Trump has made a rhetorical enemy of America's southern neighbor, blaming its government for sending 'rapists' and 'murderers' into the U.S. along with a wave of illicit drugs and illegal immigrants.
But on Saturday he said the silent protests had to do with his success in zoning the property to build a golf course that obstructs their view of the North Sea.

____

In this area this is a very, very contentious zoning approval, you know, to get this done,' Trump explained. 'In fact when I bought the land, everybody said it would be impossible to get it zoned. So I got it zoned.'
'That's what I do,' he said. 'I'm very good at getting things zoned.'

1. Does Trump even know what the flag of Mexico looks like?

Honest question. He's lived his entire life in a bubble of only things he's chosen to engage in. He's nothing like the rest of us work-a-day proles.

8. Trump said: "They've taken their country back."

When actually Scotland voted to stay in the EU, and may break from the UK to do so.
