Trump is a spoiled rich playboy, but he played an experienced businessman and very successful deal-maker on television.

Your average republican can't tell them apart.

None of that was his doing. The producer of The Apprentice said they had to cut the hell out of their footage to make it look like Trump was rational. He just did stuff at random and they assembled bits and pieces to make it seem to make sense. Really, none of the people he fired did anything to deserve it. He just had favorites, so he wouldn't fire them. It was all run by "his gut" instead of his head. Which is what you are left with when your head is not working so well any more.

Sounds about right.

Trump is the laughingstock of the entire world, a failure who's too stupid and lazy to accomplish anything, and in year three of his malignant "presidency," has looked around at the ruins of everything he’s touched, see it's all turned to shyte.

Hmm

Contrary to public belief, they couldn't even shoot the show AT Trump Tower, which is what the show tried to make people believe.

"What we did was a scam" - Bill Pruitt, Director

Quote:
“If you walked around Trump’s actual office in Trump Tower you’d see the wood’s chipped, and what’s that smell?” says Pruitt in the film. “It wasn’t the empire we were going to have to sell to people. We needed to gussy it up a bit. And we did.”


Chipped and broken woodwork, threadbare carpet, funny smells, worn furniture, messy offices, plumbing and electric problems, all documented by a good many past crew and participants.

Way back in the day, when Greta Van Sustren still had her blog on Fox when she still worked at Fox, there was a Conservative in NC whose community fixed-up a local park.

Then a while later, the same NC poster said they were fixing-up the local park. The last time was a year prior.

The point is, the conservatives tend not to maintain what they have, they let it fall apart and turn to shyte and just renew all over again. Hmm

Jeff, thanks for the post above. It inspired me to watch a Netflix Docuseries called Dirty Money. It's the last episode in the series called CONfidence Man. (Emphasis on con for con artist). The entire episode is about Trump.

I just finished watching the episode. All of the things that Donald Trump has done to people is pretty gross. The man is a horrible person and you can't feel good about supporting him in any way after watching that episode.

Hmm

Here's something I found very interesting about the Netflix episode discussed above. The series came-out in 2018, a year before Ukraine "quid pro quo."

The guy discussing Trump's casinos stated that everything Trump does in life is a quid pro quo.

Hmm

Trump boo'd at game five and Joe Biden on 60 Minutes telling the corrupt one in the Oval Office to release his taxes if he's truly anti-corruption. All-in-all, a good Sunday night.
