Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 16, 2020

No aspect of Donald Trump's business has been the subject of more speculation than his debt load. Lots of people believe the president owes $400 million, especially after Trump seemed to agree with that figure on national television Thursday night. In reality, however, he owes more than $1 billion.

FTA"
"Donald Trump owns a 30% interest in 1290 Avenue of the Americas, which might explain why he does not list its debt on the financial disclosure report he files annually with federal ethics officials. Trump's share of the debt on the building appears to be the largest liability in his entire portfolio. '

Keep in mind that this is the property that Qatar pays ------- millions, for an unoccupied office.

Emoluments, Schmoluments

I've written this before, but one of the biggest red flags that stops people from getting a security clearance is debt. It was one of the reasons Jared couldn't get cleared until Dotard stepped in. According to the intel folks, personal debt is a very common way for foreign intelligence agencies to get and maintain control over a target. We know that Drumpf has been overly submissive to Putin and Russia, taking their side against US Intel agencies, damaging NATO, pulling troops out of Germany, etc. Is that because he has idolized Putin since well before he took the Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013, or is it because they hold his hairy little financial marbles in their sweaty hands?

If Trump actually was worthless (financially), his family would have given him the boot a long time ago.

#15 No, they swore allegiance to the Debt King long ago.

Well, okay, Tiffany might give him the boot again. But I think even she knows what side her bread is buttered on.

Don Jr. is more or less the future of the Republican Party.

Having spent the last two days driving through red 'Murica! I can say that that is

a. not surprising

b. highly disturbing

Christ, I went out to eat tonight after I got home and had to listen to this idiot at the table next to me blather on about the Hunter Biden email "scandal" the entire time. Two days of realizing how retarded rural America is and I had to have it seated next to me at dinner too.

It's not just rural 'Murica.

I was over drinking whiskey with my friend and his sister in law was there. Rabid Trumptard. Going on and on about the email "scandal".

Question was put to her: "Why were only pdfs of the emails released and not the actual email where the metadata could be analyzed?"

Her reply was that it didn't matter and that pdf's can't be faked.

Question: "So then Obama's Hawaii birth certificate was legitimate then."

Her reply: No that is a fake.

Question: But you just said pdfs can't be faked.

Her reply: No, the Biden email can't be faked.

This is the intelligence of a Trumptard.

When you look at the email and zoom in, the "VP" icon is clearly cut and pasted into the email. eddiekrassenstein.medium.com

""Before turning over the gear, the shop owner says, he made a copy of the hard drive and later gave it to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's lawyer, Robert Costello," the Post said."

This whole thing stinks of a Russian disinformation operation.

@#15 ... If Trump actually was worthless (financially), his family would have given him the boot a long time ago. ...

My guess is that so long as Trump Inc. can keep the shell game running, his family will stand by him.

One thing to consider, however. New York State has been looking into Trump Inc (since it is based in New York) and it seems they are finding interesting things.

That also seems to be pulling in Mr Don Jr and Mr Eric Trump.

They may not be able to give Mr Don Sr Trump the boot, even if they wanted to.

Forbes has been for years inflating the value of Trump's assets and undercounting or simply not counting a lot of his debts, some quite obscure, to be sure because of multiple LLCs that Trump has been using, but still Forbes has been pressured by Trump to keep and push him higher on the famous list.

That gave him cred among feeble-minded that kept saying that since he was "self-made billionaire, he knew what he was talking about." Of course, that didn't stop the same people to accuse George Soros and Michael Bloomberg, among others, who are truly self-made billionaires with wealth many times that of Dotard's, of lying and commiting crimes.

Ignorance is bliss.
