What happens if you have a ‘golden shower’ in Trump hotels?

This week it was revealed in a sensational but unconfirmed report alleging that Russia has a dossier aimed at influencing and compromising US President-elect Donald Trump.

The report alleges that Russia has prepared a file of compromising inteligence aimed at influencing the US leader.

According to the report, one item held by the Russian government is a video tape filmed by secret FSB cameras at a hotel where Trump stayed in Moscow – which purportedly shows him engaging sex workers in acts of urination.

But what would Mr Trump’s own hotels say of the matter?

It’s been reported by Broadly, an offshoot of VICE, that Trump’s own hotels aren’t so keen on the golden showers.

When Broadly rang five star Trump Hotel, Las Vegas, they were told a golden shower session would set you back some dollar.

This is how the exchange with the hotel went.

Hi there. If I had an accident in one of your rooms and urinated in the bed, would this be a problem? Would there be an extra charge?
Whaaat?

If I urinated in your bed, would I have to pay extra?
Yes.

Do you know what the charge is for that?
Depends how bad it is.

So if there was just a little bit of wee, how much would that be?
I can’t give you a price without investigating.

Verdict: Can piss, but will cost you.”

The unconfirmed allegations about Trump’s activities sent shockwaves through America.

His pre-arranged press conference descended into rows as he labelled CNN “fake news” and refused to take questions.

The briefing drew on a report which originated as opposition research from anti-Trump Republicans, which was drawn up by a former intelligence agent whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. The document is unsubstantiated and reporters have not been able to verify its contents – but Buzzfeed published it in full.

It says: “Trump‘s (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs. Obama (who he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him.”

Trump has angrily denied the claims, tweeting: “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!”.

Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, who is named in the report, has denied making a trip to Prague where the report alleges he met Russian officials.

The Russian government has rubbished the claims.

It says: “This is an obvious attempt to harm our bilateral relations Pulp fiction, that’s what it is called in English. Of course, probably the best way to react would be accordingly – with a certain sense of humor.

“Although there is a downside – indeed, there are those who are stirring up the hysteria, who go out of their way to maintain this state of a witch-hunt.”

However Buzzfeed has defended its decision to publish the report.

Editor-in-chief Ben Smith wrote in a message to staff: “Our presumption is to be transparent in our journalism and to share what we have with our readers. We have always erred on the side of publishing. In this case, the document was in wide circulation at the highest levels of American government and media.

“It seems to lie behind a set of vague allegations from the Senate Majority Leader to the director of the FBI and a report that intelligence agencies have delivered to the president and president-elect.

“Publishing the document was not an easy or simple call, and people of good will may disagree with our choice. But publishing this dossier reflects how we see the job of reporters in 2017.”
