Looks like Teflon Don, finally got scrubbed

2. I'm sure Trump will try to use these recent events to his advantage

saying he sticks to his conservative principles, even if it costs him money. And besides, he'll say, he's filthy rich and he will barely notice the losses. What I wonder about is whether he's been as rich and successful in the past as he claims. Didn't Lawrence O'Donnell do an expose on him a few years ago, proving that he doesn't have nearly as much money as he wants us to believe? Didn't Trump file for bankruptcy several time before? Are there court records showing his finances as part of his divorce proceedings? What about his tax returns, if and when he agrees to release them?

5. I wonder about his finances, too - Trump is a developer but seems that he's dependent on

Macy's, NBC, etc. so how's his real estate doing?

I recall many yrs. ago he either declared bankruptcy or was close to it. He was then able to rebuild and ostensibly appeared more successful than ever, but who knows? That one piece of paper he showed with his assets was a complete farce. No one with his kind of finances could put all assets and liabilities on one page.

14. Hasn't he declared bankruptcy like 4 times? Some business model he has there. What's he

going to do as President--sell of New Hampshire to the Chinese to balance the budget? What a putz.

good business. Who knew?

13. As a female shopper I think people should dump the Ivanka Trump line too

She is endorsing her father - she was there and introduced him the day he made that rant. I see her shitty clothes everywhere and of course I won't even consider buying any of it. I hope stores consider dropping her line too.

20. Many years ago I bought 2 of his shirts.


They were on sale at Macy's for 2 for $35. The tag said 'medium'. They were not medium, more like extra large. I gave one away and can't wear the other one.

23. One thing is perfectly clear: this is a great example of what not to do in a campaign.

And this will be in future textbooks for future generations - what should you not do in a presidential campaign? I know! Don't attack one third of the voter base during your campaign launch speech!!!

People come in with loads of cash they’re already planning on blowing and he goes belly up? There is something clearly missing in his self-proclaimed business acumen. My dog is a better businessman than Trump.

31. Oddly, I think all this negative press will actually further endear him to wingnuts

Since he's doubling down on his racist comments, which a lot of the Republican voter base agrees with, they probably see him as being oppressed by political correctness stifling his free speech.

That would explain his bounce in the Repug primary polls.
