Surreal Sighting of the Day: Donald Trump Visits El Sombrero in Las Vegas

There we were, checking out the cafe at the Gambler’s General Store, when the unmistakable sound of political protesters chanting rang out.

Soon, a dozen or so dark vehicles rumbled down Main Street, the motorcade of none other than Presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

We spotted Donald Trump’s motorcade near Gass Avenue. Total coincidence.

A large police presence quickly formed outside a small Mexican restaurant, El Sombrero Mexican Bistro, in downtown Las Vegas.

El Sombrero has been a Las Vegas fixture since the 1950s. You know, back when America was great.

Donald Trump visited the establishment for about 20 minutes, then emerged, surrounded by lots of very serious-looking Secret Service agents.

Protesters, schmotesters, pass the salsa.

Donald Trump seemed to sense the vibe of the crowd outside (the protesters were out in force and very well-organized), so he moved quickly into his vehicle.

Then, though, he popped his head up above the top of the vehicle and waved directly at us. Because even Donald Trump wanted to know the thrill of being in this Las Vegas blog.

1) Thank you for the photo, Mr. Trump. 2) Genius sign placement. 3) We can’t entirely explain the feet.

Apparently, Donald Trump had a quick sit-down with Hispanic business leaders during his visit to El Sombrero.

No matter your political leanings, you have to admit, you truly never know what (or who) you’ll see in Las Vegas.

    Maybe he was in town picking up lunch for the employees at Trump Las Vegas. You know people who work for him LOVE The Donald, he said so. Then a quick run over to visit Sheldon at LVRJ for a grip and grin session.

    Man of the people or maybe just a photo op. Either way EL Sombrero is a place where you would never find a Hillary. I’m sure visiting a mexican restaurant in the barrio is a plus with my people
