Qaddafi Tent Banned From Trump’s Lawn

Okay, turns out that the tent in Donald Trump's backyard in Bedford, New York, wasn't actually for the upcoming nuptials of his daughter and real-estate magnate Jared Kushner. It was, in fact, set up so that Libyan "King of Kings" Muammar Qaddafi could stay there with his entourage. But no longer! A town inspector forced them to take down the air-conditioned, Bedouin-style structure because they didn't have permits — but as angry as the town may be, it can't stop Qaddafi from staying in Trump's giant house. Trump, who regularly rents out the seven-bedroom, Tudor-style mansion for thousands of dollars to business associates, didn't even realize that the much-hated Libyan leader was coming. "We have business partners and associates all over the world," a spokeswoman said yesterday. "The property was leased on a short-term basis to Middle Eastern partners who may or may not have a relationship to Mr. Qaddafi. We are looking into the matter."

Whether or not Qaddafi slept in Trump's thousand-thread-count sheets last night, he's going to be following in President Obama's footsteps later this morning, addressing the United Nations General Assembly directly after Obama.
