A History of How Donald Trump Celebrates His Birthday

While we won't be sending our "Cheeto-In-Chief" an e-card on his birthday, we certainly could never miss out on the yearly chance to remind everyone of just how gluttonous Trump is on his birthday.

Donald Trump turns 72 today, but has apparently been celebrating since Monday when Singaporean officials surprised him with a birthday cake lunch during the North Korea summit. While the White House has not yet revealed plans that will ensue today, we can only suspect that they, much like Trump himself, will be ostentatious and exorbitant.

Here's a quick reminder (even though it's not that difficult to forget) of the current president's unrelatable disposition and seemingly interminable income.

Celebrating his birthday in the Crystal Ballroom at his Atlantic City casino, Trump was entrenched with divorce rumors having to do with his affair with Marla Maples - but, of course, the party went on.

The Observer recounted a story wherein a blacklisted reporter, Wayne Barrett, snuck his research assistant, Timothy O'Brien, into the function. O'Brien, who was "mistaken...for a casino patron" noted televised congratulatory messages from Dolly Parton and Elton John, replicas of Trump's now bankrupt airline carrier, comedy skits, and performances by cast members of Saturday Night Live.

Trump's birthday invitation, complete with an image of him on a throne with the caption "The Birthday Celebration Of The Ages Starring Renaissance Man Donald J. Trump" speaks for itself. *Moment of silence for the fact that his ex-wife, Marla Maples, is shown at his feet*

To celebrate Trump's Golden Birthday, his wife, Marla Maples, threw him an over-the-top party at Trump Tower that was "supposed to be a surprise," but, more importantly, was "supposed to be intimate" according to a New York Times report. When this understated intent reached him, though, Trump decided he wanted to do a "big blowout" instead.

His 50th birthday party included a violin trio and pianist to greet guests, a mermaid ice sculpture of Maples, Eartha Kitt singing her rendition of "Happy Birthday," and 600 golden balloons just to name a few...

We have 5 words for you: 15' cake and Pamela Anderson.

Celebrating with Trump at the Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, the "Baywatch" star, who was apparently paid $500 to attend, was present while Donald Trump blew out his birthday candles on a 15-foot, three-tier cake.

In true Trump fashion, the president took to Twitter on his birthday in 2012 and wished for "our country to be great and prosperous again."

This one is just for the sake of satirical humor.

2018: Trump at 72

The New York Times just reported the following:

"The New York State attorney general’s office filed a scathingly worded lawsuit on Thursday taking aim at the Donald J. Trump Foundation, accusing the charity and the Trump family of sweeping violations of campaign finance laws, self-dealing and illegal coordination with the presidential campaign."

Trump immediately attacked the lawsuit at 11:09 this morning via Twitter:

Not the most most lavish start to Trump's birthday, we'd say, but, luckily we've recounted these better times for him.
