The MOST brilliant thing I've read about trump

From an article on DailyKos about trump's desperate appeal on Facebook to give away Inauguration tickets:

"Just consider, he’ll be the first billionaire to live in subsidized government housing previously occupied by a more popular black family."

SO perfect!

2. Most likely true

I was just quoting the comment.

I think trump's penury is the axle on which this whole mess turns. He was multiply bankrupt and was bailed out by the Russian mob. Now he's in over his head, and providing the keys to the back door of the US is his only means of paying back what he owes.

3. WAS Broke. He has already achieved a goal

His Trump Enterprises and hotels around the world have gone way up since the election. Countries that had stalled projects out with permits and regulations have pushed them through.
What started for him as a publicity stunt has exceeded his wildest dreams. However, there may be a nightmare yet to come, not just for the rest of us, but even for him. His popularity has already started to drop as reality sets in.

5. Except he won't. The White House is not nearly ostentatious enough enough for him.

He require far more gilding in his decor.




But for the little time he does spend at the White House, he still might do this:

7. THAT

12. I doubt it.

She's far too old for him to enjoy it. Putin will send him some 11 year-old sex slaves to do the job.

9. Disgustingly poor taste

...I know billionaires who live pretty ordinary lives. Look at Warren Buffet too. Billionaire or not, no one except someone intent on compensating, would live like that. It doesn't show his wealth, just his ignorance and need to draw attention to his superficial success. What kind of little boy wears a suit or sits on stuffed lions among guilded columns and walls? What sort of parents, including Ms.DT (who wants to make her signature program children ), would raise a child like that, no matter how much money they have?
It looks very uncomfortable, like no one is intended to really sit in those chairs. I guess if you have a 2 minute attention span, it could work for a conversation.

11. Aren't you being unfair to the Mrs. Baby-man?

She just wants to teach America's children how to dress for their Wall Street jobs and prepare them for riding lions. Things every child needs to know.

8. Brilliant and Trump in the same sentence is difficult to do.

13. Not for him it's not.

Wait a minute, though, I don't think he does brilliant. It's always terrific, right. Fitting, since that word's got so much in common with terrible.
