Isn't This Precious?

Feast your eyes:

The year is 1989. The place is New York state. The event is the first (and apparently last) annual Tour de Trump bicycle race. At the finish line sensible fans gathered to celebrate the event with signs reading, "Trump = Lord of the Flies," "Hungry? Eat the Rich," "Ivana = Imelda (Marcos)," "Die, Yuppie $cum," and "Never Live In a Cardboard Box."

So moving was the event that it inspired a group in Aspen, Colorado to launch the Tour de Rump. Trump's lawyers sent a cease & desist letter, the organizers replied with something akin to "bugger off," Trump lost interest in bicycles and the Aspen race apparently continues.

So was Trumps lawyer's argument that you cannot call it Tour de Rump because that would be naming it after Trump because he's the biggest asshole of all time.

Sounds like a reasonable guess
