Eric Trump's taste in architectural aesthetics was questioned on Tuesday when he touted a building with his family's surname slapped on the facade as the "most beautiful building in the world."



It didn't take long for him to be relentlessly mocked for it.

Twitter users provided him with examples of monuments in the world that are more deserving of the accolade.



Others provided better examples worthy of the distinction as best in the world, like the Taj Mahal in India, or Mont Saint-Michel along the Normandy coast of France.

Classic and modern marvels were brought up in comparison.

Conceptually, this person had a different interpretation of beauty.

"Beautiful" was replaced with a more appropriate description:

Chicago is known to boast many architectural wonders, but the Trump Tower is not among the highest-rated.



Overall, the mirrored facade with the president's name didn't get high marks.

The 98-story skyscraper was designed by architect Adrian Smith of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and construction was completed in 2009. It sits along the north side of the Chicago River, a block from the southern end of the Magnificent Mile.

While the reflected surfaces of the brushed stainless steel and clear anodized aluminum panels don't exactly make the structure a complete eyesore, the general consensus was certainly contrary to the mocked trustee of the Trump Organization.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
