what does Salma Hayek have to do with the story? I don't understand why she's being mentioned when she's not the person donating the money.

What a waste of money. Knock down what's left of that monument of child rape, and misogyny, and build affordable housing.

He should spend his money feeding the poor and homeless. build a hospital for the elderly and infirmed. I'm not impressed with his donation to the church. Big deal
