13. You gotta admit, though, it takes real Manly-Man Business Talent ((c), Trump Enterprises)...
...to go bankrupt with a @#$%^&* CASINO!!! No doubt this was a shrewd multi-dimensional-chess-type business move (a move so staggeringly brilliant that we mortals can only stand in awe of his wonderfulness) on his part.
He's a good promoter, though. So was the guy who made a living selling snake oil door-to-door.
14. i just wish he would go the hell away. i mean, that apprentice show....
how many times have i thought it was finally going to get cancelled. so they just make it more sleazy trailer trash bs. uggh. but you are right... he is a good promoter. and i guess it takes that kind of ego he has to pull off some of the shit he does. 'polishing a turd' so to speak.
18. I've never see the show. I've seen enough on the promos to know that I wouldn't like it.
I think most normal people cringe a bit when they hear "You're fired!" -- and I truly think most small businesspeople don't care to have to utter it, either. But I get the feeling that The Donald almost enjoys it. Maybe soft-sore sadism is what sells amongst the teabaggers these days.
I keep hearing from the right-wingers that "the government needs to be run like a business." Outside of the fact that I don't agree with that sentiment, surely they're not thinking that the government needs to be run like one of Donald Trump's businesses!

Conceptually, isn't Trump the very thing they hate? Wouldn't he be clasified as a "moocher" in Ayn Rand's terminology?
Not that obvious cognitive dissonances have ever posed a problem for teabaggers, but this still baffles me. Is Trump generally considered a "self made man"? I've never thought of him as such, but then again, I haven't lived in the US for ages.
3. my 18 month old loves to turn the tv on. she turned it on and there was trump
talking about how he is the best and would be the best because he is the best. yech. luckily she turned the channel... a blue screen is certainly preferable to that windbag. just remember fred thompson. he was the greatest and everyone wanted him to run. as soon as he did, his numbers went through the floor and he was a joke. i see the same happening with windbag
I see people I like, even liberals, watching his stupid show (the Apprentice, I think it's called). I really wish he would shut the hell up. I really wish I didn't have to overhear his moronic, annoying voice every time I go near a TV.
