It’s well known by now that it doesn’t take much to rankle the current president of these United States, but here’s a fun incident to add to that file: According to One Direction member Liam Payne, Donald Trump the civilian once kicked 1D out of one of his New York City hotels when they refused to meet his daughter. (Which daughter? Unclear, but based on relative age, we’d bet it’s Tiffany.) Of course, this is all alleged information, but The Hollywood Reporter says Payne gave an interview where he stated that Trump “phoned up our manager and we were asleep. He said ‘Well, wake them up.’” When the lads wouldn’t meet a young Ms. Trump, the future leader of the free world allegedly denied them access to private, underground entrances to the hotel. “Obviously in New York we can’t really go outside,” Payne said. “New York is ruthless for us. So he was like, ‘Okay, then I don’t want you in my hotel.’ So we had to leave.” Disrespecting the foremost boy band in the world? That, sir, is a bridge too far.
