Trump’s attempt to pander to Hispanics was humiliating on its face, but what someone just noticed may get Trump a serious talking to at home as well.
On the Mexican holiday of Cinco De Mayo, Trump tweeted a picture of himself posing with a taco bowl – fresh from the Trump Tower Grill in the lobby of his building – and boldly claimed “I love Hispanics!”

Instantly, the photo and Trump’s embarrassing attempt at pandering went viral, causing both head scratching and laughter in equal measure.
But then somebody noticed something unusual…
Reporter Benny Johnson looked at what was on Trump’s desk and noticed a bikini-clad woman. Even more awkward, it wasn’t just any woman, that is Trump’s ex-wife, Marla Maples.
Maples very publicly brought an end to Trump’s first marriage when rumors of an affair broke. The scandal tore Trump’s family apart.
[Ivana] had been completely humiliated by Donald through his public association with Marla Maples. “How can you say you love us? You don’t love us! You don’t even love yourself. You just love your money,” twelve-year-old Donald junior told his father, according to friends of Ivana’s. “What kind of son have I created?” Trump’s mother, Mary, is said to have asked Ivana.
He went on to divorce Ivana Trump and marry Maples instead. Later he would divorce Maples for Melania, his current wife – but perhaps he’s not quite over his ex-wife. Old flames die hard.
It’s unclear exactly what Trump was reading that had an old picture of his ex-wife. On top of the magazine are several newspapers – including the New York Times, a “liberal” media outlet Trump claims he hates. Whatever the reason, it’s hard to imagine a great train wreck done by a single image. Not only has Trump’s taco bowl become the laughing stock of the internet, but now he gets to answer to some pretty awkward questions from Melania when he gets home from a hard day of alienating Hispanics and destroying the Republican Party.
