4 things Ramon could have done besides attending Trump’s Press conference


As many of you all know by now Univision reporter Jorge Ramos was kindly escorted out of the winner’s circle [Trump’s words, not mine] yesterday at a press conference in Iowa. That got me to thinking. Ramos has flown all the way to Iowa, he was wearing his BEST Marc Anthony collection shirt/tie combo so why waste the momentum. Me being the hospitality maven that I am, I decided to hop on the Iowa tourism board website and do some digging as to fun things you can do in Iowa [not that attending a Trump presser isn’t fun, but still].

#1 Titanic exhibit


Let some tell it, Ramos had already boarded a sinking ship when he hit up that Trump presser, but if that’s not necessarily your train of thought, you can always hit up the Titanic exhibit. This throwback relic has tons of interesting facts, stories, etc that ANY middle aged corn-fed citizen would love to know. Granted you could just rent the movie from blockbuster [please be kind and do rewind] and watch the VHS in your hotel room while working on your next story, but hey if you like the Titanic exhibit then I LOVE it!

#2  Greyhound Park at Mystique Casino


Okay so maybe big boats and stuff that floats isn’t your thing, you can always play the puppies! That’s right Mystique Casino has it’s on greyhound racing park! Hell, if your hearts in the right place you might even consider adopting one of them things.

#3 Butt’s Florist and Greenhouse


Anything with “Butt’s” in the title is sure to grab your attention and Butt’s florist is no exception! Now apparently this place sells flowers, flower arrangements, gift packages, etc. The have “greenhouse” in their title as well, which makes me wonder if they’re selling anything else….. if you’re picking up what I’m putting down…….

#4 Cathy’s Treasures


At first I was reluctant to add this place to the list. I was down right upset when I called up to inquire about their “services” and turns out “Cathy’s Treasures” is in fact NOT a one stop shop for adult entertainment and is actually an antique’s store. Hey, some men are into antiques… Just as Liz Taylor’s last husband…. However, I personally am not. If I wanted to rummage through old cast off relics I would head to the goodwill, not a store that looks like a moderate case of “Hoarders”. Anyway, if you want to hit up
Cathy’s Treasures, that’s on you. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.


Trump on Ramos: Scream queen


Trump spoke in Iowa on Tuesday and boy did the fur fly! Univision host Jorge Ramos stood up in an effort to ask about immigration and Trump shut him DOWN without hesitation. Trump’s men-in-black kindly escorted Ramos to the curb in a manner that Ramos might have considered “oh so nasty and oh so rude”. When asked about the back and forth Trump stated “I don’t know who he [Ramos] is, he just stood up and started screaming at me”. Now this is where I have to play semantics Sam; he says “I don’t know who he is” HOWEVER he said “go back to Univision” is he saying “I don’t know him at all” or “I know him, but don’t follow his reporting”? Either way, I say this can all be settled with a nice glass of soda and a rousing game of toma todo, but then again I am an optimist. Source
