1. gotta admit, it's more credible than the "greedy scientists" angle

For years, the deniers have been shopping this wacky idea that climatologists are creating a climate change hoax to gin up lucrative government research grants. Never mind that the money they'd get from shilling for the petrol industry dwarfs anything they could possibly get from the government, these greedy university bastards are in it for the money so don't trust 'em!

IMHO, Trump's China conspiracy theory is a step up from this. Still ridiculous, but at least there's a motive that could be plausible if you're a racist xenophobic climate-denying douchebag.

2. Oh Gawd! How did a man this stupid make so much money.

I would wager not honestly. I would love to do a forensic audit of his ledgers.

4. Many people are saying that the only reason he's still well-off is because of his TV shows.

I don't doubt that one bit, myself.

I watched the last season of Celebrity Apprentice only because George Takei was on it. Soon as he was eliminated, I quit the show and will likely never watch his shit again.

5. He inherited it. It's pretty hard not to be rich when you're born that way.

He's filed bankruptcy multiple times.

Trump is not this sage of a businessman. He's a buffoon with a lot of money in his pocket and a rodent on his head.

8. How is a person this stupid, able to be a billionaire?

As a matter of fact, just about every time I hear a billionaire opine about anything other than hoarding huge amounts of wealth, they sound as dumb as a box of rocks.
