Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 20, 2021

Trump 747 hasn't been used in years and it's in a state of increasing disrepair. It doesn't even have two functioning engines now. It's also worth pointing out that Trump bought it used from a billionaire. Rich people don't buy used planes unless they collect used planes.

Trump has always been broke.

He is leveraged up to his comb over.

He lived off of daddys bailouts. When that money ran out he lived off of Duestche Bank money, then Russian mob money.

Now that he is useless to Vlad, that is drying up too.

Come on MAGAt's...start handing over those $1400 Joememtum checks to the rapy sack of triglycerides!

It's a 757, and it's more like $4 million to overhaul just one of the two engines.

Probably one of the least responsible things you could personally own short of a mega-yacht.

At least for mega-yachts, they sometimes catch fire while moored pierside.
Conveniently.

Speaking of planes, I really hope President Biden dumps Lewzer's paint scheme for the new VC-25Bs.

When Trump Empire ends up at a police auction I hope it's purchased by Oprah and converted into the first Mercy airship.

I suppose she must have been out of action for a while, or Trump would have easily found volunteers to fly it into The Capitol on Jan 6.

Not much of a mystery anymore. It's the seabobs or whatever they're called. The battery powered sleds. The deckhands aren't taught how to maintain them, they leak, saltwater saturates the LiPO battery, a little corrosion later and the fire begins, ignites the rest of the battery sleds, and burns out the ship starting with the garage. Once they're ignited that's it, write off the entire ship.

This is no mystery:
-Trump bought a plane and got a loan for about 95% of his purchase price.
-The lender is some equipment finance lender who didn't know about Trumps willingness to default on his debts.
-Having purchased a plane with high operating costs, Trump soon figured out it would be cheaper to park the plane and default on the loan.
-Rather then suffer the humiliation of having the plane repossessed Trump had the engines disabled or damaged to prevent it from flying.
-The lender took title to this bird some time ago, and only after learned that the thing doesn't fly and will cost millions to get into operational condition.
-The lender wrote off the loan, and is waiting for someone to buy the thing for scrap value.

This is what a combination of hubris, narcissism and cavalier financial actions look like. Anyone who has or might do business with Trump should look at this situation and think very carefully...

Somehow I can't picture Frumpy flying commercial.

Maybe Frumpy has enough corporate donors with corporate jets to fly him jump seat anywhere he wants to go. I wonder how that's going to work out since he's not in a position to dole out favors any more.

The thing is it has value even if it doesn't fly.

It will make a great tourist attraction in Trumplandia or Trumpyland or whatever Humpy is gonna call it. If he doesn't go to jail that is.

It will have a different kind of value if he does. But it will still have value. Trumptilians will line up for miles and pay just to see it and even more to "Trump" thru it (pretending they ARE Trump) and touch it. It you got it flying you have 75 million instant suckers err I mean customers!

Most Presidents build a library for that sort of thing and let the library pay for it. I seriously doubt this one will build a library.

They should repo it and then sell tickets to blow it up like they did with LEWZER Casino in Atlantic City.

Excellent post CatDog. It's also conceivable the lender had no idea it was a Trump shell company that was making the purchase.

#12 | Posted by snoofy at 2021-03-20 07:20 PM | Reply

And honestly it seems just as conceivable this loan was made with the full understanding that Trump would default on it and then the lender would simply write off the loss.

He's claiming the engine was stolen.

He sold it.

It has no scrap value because it can't be flown to a place where it can be scrapped.

You don't scrap it. You part it out, and that can be done in place for ramp rent. Airlines still operate hundreds of these.

"Trump has always been broke."

One day he's broke, the next day he's a billionaire.

What's funny is they now have what they want but they can't quit talking about Trump.

Actually, it's just proof that Lewzer is a loser.

If Trump still owns this 757 (instead of leased as originally reported) it will end up in receivership along with everything else that gets sold to settle his debts.

Shred it for the aluminum and sell it to mobile home manufacturers. Call the place Trump Estates or Trump Court.

I love when Trumpers continue to refer to Trump as the President.

What a bunch of pathetic losers.
