In my humble outpost here in the hinterlands of Maine, listening to Imus this morning, "The Don", Donald Trump said; "The war in Iraq is worse than Vietnam." This comment came right after complaining about not being able to buy concrete because a lot is going to Iraq to rebuild thier country. Trump maybe a good businessman, but when it comes to the world outside of his financial empire, he's just an apprentice.
Vietnam = 58,177 KIA Iraq = 1,003 KIA
And if you cannot make a distinction between the importance of our presence in Iraq and the war on terrorism versus our presence in Vietnam to stop the tide of an idiological civil war, not only are you an apprentice you're a fool.
OK, the only answer here is to remove Trump's buildings from the American defense perimeter.
He's a fraud, albeit a shrewd one. Even his casinos go bankrupt.
Trump is just evidence that if you're rich enough at one time, you can fail multiple times and never starve. I wouldn't trade my house on 2 acres, 0 credit card debt and 401K plan for his roller coaster.
Apperently, he isn't even that good a businessman. All bluster, no muster.
WTF was on my clipboard? That should have been "Trump maybe a good businessman," YIKES! I guess my beeber is stuned.
Just recently started listening to Imus again. Been a year or two or three. I was actually listening to him on 9/11 as events unfolded, I remember it first broke as a private plane hitting as one of the towers.
Anyway, I could no listen this AM. He may longer be backing Kerry, but he lets his guests lambaste W to their hearts content. And who the heck believes anything Doris Kearns Goodwin has to say. She's a discredited historian, just like Brinkley.
That seemed to be his justification for being against the war, "I can't get enough concrete because it's all going to Iraq".
Plus he was humping his TV show. I tell you Don it's going to be great. My prediction foreclosure.
THERE SHALL BE NO APPRENTICE THREADS ALLOWED ANYWHERE ON FREE REPUBLIC!
Can I get an Amen from the Admin Moderator?
I think Trump is the most over-rated "businessman" of the day. He is an outstanding flim-flam man, however.
Trump is the perfect illustration of a little financial truth I once heard: if you owe the bank ten thousand dollars and can't pay, you have a problem. If you owe the bank fifty million dollars and can't pay, the bank has a problem.
Isn't this idiot's business empire on the point of collapse?
Maybe he wants to try comedy as an alternate career.
The only 'business' Trump is really good at is self-promotion.
How's that for demoralizing our troops.
Anybody catch the exact words he used?
Is Trump a veteran?
Who asked him?
and estimates of the financial loss on 911 are from 3 billion to 10 billion
not to mention the loss of human life
He is an ass..
HE IS FIRED
Financially and intellectually bankrupt.
