At the rate that Donald Trump’s business relationships are ending, he should take a step back and realize he’s the problem. But he’s Donald Trump, and nothing about him makes sense. He may have had the foresight to stamp his name on just about everything (mattresses, beer, clothes…using letterhead on his own instagrams), but he somehow couldn’t predict that being a racist would piss people off. Since announcing his run for president and insulting Mexican immigrants, he’s been hemorrhaging money after daring companies to continue doing business with him.

ESPN is the latest to distance themselves from Trump. They won’t be holding their charity golf tournament at his Trump National Golf Club on July 14. “Diversity and inclusion are core values at ESPN, and our decision also supports that commitment,” ESPN’s statement read. The tournament will now be held at the Pelican Hill.

Some, like George Lopez, won’t even be associated with anything that has Trump’s name on it. George even told other Latinos they should quit working for him. Of course, that’s not easy for people who don’t make George Lopez money. The comedian did joke that Trump still had a chance to become president. “There’s enough racists in this country for him to get elected,” Lopez told TMZ. #truestory
