Think about it. A man's business has just been destroyed, his entire livelihood burned to the ground. So a week later he gets a call from the White House, asking him to be in their photo-op for President Shit-for-brains. Still traumatized, he respectfully declines to participate in their circus. Now he finds out they went ahead with their photo-op anyway, using the former owner as a stand-in.
There are no limits with Trump.
A Kenosha business owner is accusing President Donald Trump of using his destroyed store for political gain.
Gram said he got a call Monday from the White House asking if he’d join the president on a tour that would showcase his leveled business, but Gram immediately refused.
“I think everything he does turns into a circus and I just didn’t want to be involved in it,” Gram said.
To Gram’s surprise, he watched on TV as the president showed up with the store’s former owner and President Trump made it seem like the store was still his.

The owner of a damaged business refused to appear with @POTUS.
So who is the guy he posed with and called the store's "owner?"@BenJordan3 exposes some photo-op deception at 10pm. pic.twitter.com/9RGPaw1qcP

The owner of an old Kenosha camera shop refused to pose with Trump, saying Trump was using him and his shop for political gain. So Trump had the former owner of the shop pretend to be the current owner for a photo op. https://t.co/VYm8ij2tfL

Legit Crises Actors.
Kenosha business owner declines President Trump photo-op so the President’s team asked the former owner to replace him and pretend he was the current owner. https://t.co/NY4EHCAcYN

The man in this photo with Trump?
He isn't the owner of the store.
He's the former owner who showed up when the current owner turned Trump down.
Everything Trump does is a ruse and a con.
Are we great again yet?#WednesdayThoughts #WednesdayWisdom

Tom Gram bought the Kenosha camera business 8 years ago.
When he declined Trump’s request for a photo op, hoping not to be drawn into the president’s “circus,” the family that sold out to him jumped in. https://t.co/7Divh3fry6
