One thought on “Trump in his own words.

  1. Donny is a certified horses ass. He inherited wealth from his father, ran at least 4 companies into the ground causing lenders to lose millions of dollars, and hundreds, if not thousands of people to lose their jobs. I know he is a self-proclaimed smart person, but would you trust him with public dollars given his evident lack of fiscal competency? Would you trust him with the Black Box? If you would trust him, you are nuttier than he is!!! As one pundit summarized Donny’s candidacy, he would become to first openly horses ass to ascend to the presidency. He proclaims his smartest since he went to Wharton. I went to Wharton too, and the commandment of Wharton scholars is not to be a horses ass or brag about how handsome you are!!!
