he's openly spoke about the trust fund, but stated its only usable for things like traveling.
He's also openly spoke about owning sail boats and sailing extensively on them.
Hardly the words of a middle class professional getting by.
You are correct JPW ... though I sold my boat in Feb.
When one was born there and thinks they did all by themselves.

I am pretty well off, but I didn't receive this via silver spoon, its not how my father is, I worked at Wendy's, went to college, worked 24/7 as a software engineer. I didn't receive TrustFund money until 40; he didn't even tell me it was coming. It was a wonderful gift.
Before that money came Nulli and I worked on a device that enabled companies to earn Billions.
I myself invested in those companies when they were $2 a share, today its split 8 times and is worth $200 a share today.
My TrustFund is just something I love rubbing your noses in, I love how you stick in my face like its something I should be ashamed of.
I am privileged, I am the millionaire next door, but it doesn't mean I don't empathize with people without the same means, it doesn't make my PoV any less than anyone elses.
In fact given my travels, by all indications, my understanding of the world, and or privilege is much greater than than the average American.
For instance today I am transferring software knowledge to India, because we just can't find young people here to do the work. Entry level software engineering, imagine.
Americans don't know how privileged they are, but they will find out in good time.
