Trump lied about his wealth to get onto Forbe

In our first-ever list, in 1982, we included him at $100 million, but Trump was actually worth roughly $5 million — a paltry sum by the standards of his super-monied peers — as a spate of government reports and books showed only much later.

Seems Trump is an actual conman.

Reading it is an interesting insight into the man.

Great article thanks for the share. 

This quote sums up the current state of America pretty well IMO

But it took decades to unwind the elaborate farce Trump had built

Also telling that many argued not be included in the list - Trump insisted - even if not entitled.

I'm not sure the Forbes list can be considered proper journalism in the first place. It's all estimates and relies on the word of the individual.

But I guess journalists are susceptible to conmen just like anyone else. Did you hear the 'Baron' audio? That's literal grifter material right there.

He's the story that keeps on giving. You reap what you sow.

He's Australian and getting sick of it, like so many other people.

I don't know why you are so obsessed with Trump.

I’d have written in a vote for Sanders (Colonel or Bernie, either would have been an improvement over the two options offered) had I been American.

You elected one of the worst human beings possible. Xenophobic, racist, hates the poor, is misogynistic, a pervert and serial attacker of women (accused and by his own admission) and general horrible guy. And that's not even the full list.

I have plenty of reason to hate him. If he were a democrat then you'd undoubtedly hate him too.

Michelle didn’t vote for el Trumpo either. Kindly dial down the venom when talking to people.

She asked a direct question, to which I gave a direct, honest answer.

Literally zero of that "venom" was directed at the poster.

You’re spitting enough of around, the “you” language your used twice now is making it difficult to tell you’re not directing your anger at fellow posters.

 

TL;DR version - calm your tits.

You as in the collective 'you'. As in America or Republicans, whatever.

The last sentence was not collective. I genuinely believe that every Republican on this forum and elsewhere would act entirely differently towards Trump and his behaviour if he were a democrat.

Also, there was no anger. I listed off examples of why I hold my opinion. If you read that in an angry Scottish voice then that's on you.

I didn't vote for Trump and I'm not a Republican. I also don't hate people because of their political affiliation. I may dislike an action of theirs but I don't waste my time hating anyone. It's the fact I don't vehemently despise the man that irritates you.

Life is too short for that, in my opinion.

I'm pretty sure Trump stole my ham sandwich from the fridge.

It was there last night, now it's gone.

Is there no end to this man's depravity? I demand justice! :wacko:

I hear that if you talk to Cohen, he'll give you $100,000 grand whether it is true or not.

Are people really complaining about Trump threads in the "US Politics" section?  He is the President, and the leader of 1 of the 2 major political parties...and there shouldn't be near daily threads?

If they read that in an angry Scottish voice they'd have needed an interpreter. ;)
