The only reason Desantis went after them was because he was banking on Nelson peltz creating a hostile takeover of the company. It nearly happened but Disney threw a Hail Mary and got iger back for awhile.
Funny how rich businessmen always seem to have an angle.The only reason Desantis went after them was because he was banking on Nelson peltz creating a hostile takeover of the company. It nearly happened but Disney threw a Hail Mary and got iger back for awhile.
Desantis basically went after them because Disney was in a vulnerable position at the time, and the GOP would love to sock it to Disney.
Sometimes Trump can speak the truth but there always seems to be an angle to it.
He really didn't. From what's come out in his niece's suit, he received far more from his father's estate - and during his father's lifetime - than the one million he's always claimed. When his asset are revalued to actual market, and inflation is factored in, he's poorer now than when his father passed...Funny how rich businessmen always seem to have an angle.
That's how many of them got rich.
But not The Donald, he got his money the old fashioned way...
He inherited from his father, but he was smart enough to use all the angles to his advantage. Politicians kept writing bills with lots of loop holes for themselves and their friends. The Donald took advantage of every loop hole he could. He got richer.
The primary will generate more face-palms than it usually does. But hey, free entertainment for the rest of us.WATCH: Donald Trump praises governorships of Charlie Crist and Rick Scott in video addressing DeSantis
"Florida was doing fantastically. You had a governor named Rick Scott who did a very good job. Even Charlie Crist, a Democrat, did a good job - and he had very good numbers."
Thing is as much as I hate Trump this probably isn’t far off from the truth.
They know, but they dislike Democrats that much.there is no realistic scenario in which the gop gets less insane. i don't think a lot of people have fully grasped that concept yet
well, that's their problem.They know, but they dislike Democrats that much.
I disagree.He got richer.
He's that dumb because he's never had to suffer consequences from his stupidity.Let me drive home how dumb the guy is.
No argument here.He's that dumb because he's never had to suffer consequences from his stupidity.
That was because she'd already been burned. The first time, she signed a similar statement on her own word...No argument here.
Once upon a time, while never a fan, I figured he was one of those guys who was an expert at getting OTHER PEOPLE to do all the illegal stuff (Cohen is a good example) but was smart enough to straddle the line of legality, even if he was too dumb to know that he was confessing to sexual assault on the audio tape from Access Hollywood.
I'm no longer convinced that's true. But the catch to being Roy Cohn 2.0 is that you eventually stiff enough lawyers that the combined talents of Clarence Darrow, Vincent Bugliosi, and F Lee Bailey before he lost his mind aren't available because nobody works for free.
My thought is that the turning point in how lawyers deal with him was when that crafty lawyer who signed the document that he had returned all classified stuff made sure to notate that it was on the basis of Trump's word she signed this. Not only was that a warning writ large to anyone with a brain, it may show how future lawyers will be smart enough to hang him out to dry.
Honestly did not know that detail.That was because she'd already been burned. The first time, she signed a similar statement on her own word...
AFAIK, Trump has never paid Giuliani...Honestly did not know that detail.
Of course, my cynicism points me in one of two directions with ANYONE who would be this guy's lawyer now:
1) they're people who are hoping to cash in and become celebrities themselves
2) they persuade themselves they can be the exception that turns this guy onto the straight/narrow
As you've noted, he already has trouble getting lawyers in the first place because (among other reasons) he doesn't pay his bills.
This story is from the 1984 press conference where the USFL-NFL lawsuit was announced:
"The press conference was organized by Ira Silverman, a young New York–based sports public relations guru who was warned beforehand that Cohn and Trump were notorious for failing to pay their tabs. When Cohn asked how much his services would cost, Silverman told him the bill was $2,000—half due up front. “I got the check for $1,000, did the job, put together a media invite list, we had a great turnout . . . and they never gave me the second $1,000,” he said. “I handed a bill to Cohn—nothing. Then I started calling Cohn and Trump, and they never picked up the phone. They just ignored me.”
(Me: if you knew they were notorious for not paying, why didn't you insist on the entire amount up front?)
I think you're right.AFAIK, Trump has never paid Giuliani...
The more I hear from him the less I can stand him.
