Trump has always struck me a gold-plated phony.


His real estate deals seem to always involve someone going bankrupt. He reminds me of an uncle I had as a kid.
Uncle Jack had the bluster and the vanity you see with Trump. Uncle Jack always settled for the very best, even when he was broke, which was all of the time. He ended up doing ten years in federal prison. To his credit, he did his time and kept his mouth shut. That’s probably why I never cared for Trump. My uncle Jack was not an evil man. He was just one of those assholes you always regret having met if you hang around him long enough. There are guys you meet who are never on the level. They also have some angle so you can never turn your back on them. Because you can never let your guard down, they wear you out just being in the same room with them. Five Star Trump | The Z Blog

Your Say

He is a phony, but no more so than Vanderbilt and JP Morgan. He's the same kind of "win at all costs, destroy everyone in my path" type. But unlike them, his efforts haven't actually had any positive influence on America or its people.

He and his strategies would only be useful on the world stage.
