Trump ‘The Art of the Comeback’ writes ‘I’m worth minus 9 Million’


Oh this was really hard to figure out Trump and his taxes. Just read the book and the Donald talks about being in the negative. Real spiffy for the NY Times getting that plain manila envelope in the mail with his tax returns and figuring out he probably wrote it off thus no taxes. Clever.Very clever.

Trump
The Art of the Comeback


By DONALD J. TRUMP with KATE BOHNER

Times Books

One day, while walking down Fifth Avenue, hand in hand with Marla, I pointed across the street to a man holding a cup and with a Seeing Eye dog. I asked, “Do you know who that is?”

Marla said to me: “Yes, Donald. He’s a beggar. Isn’t it too bad? He looks so sad!”

I said, “You’re right. He’s a beggar, but he’s worth about $900 million more than me.” She looked at me and said, “What do you mean, Donald? How could he possibly be worth $900 million more than you?”

I said, “Let’s assume he’s worth nothing (only from the standpoint of dollars)–I’m worth minus $900 million.”

This was an interesting period of time, because as I told the story I realized in my own mind that what I was saying was true. I also began to realize that I had better get back to work!

My net worth had been in the billions. By the spring of 1990 I was deeply in the red; my empire was hemorrhaging value. When the Supreme Court upheld the retroactivity provisions in 1992, I knew that not only for me, but for my colleagues as well, prospects were grim. Even for the awesome Olympia & York, headed by the powerful Reichmann family, the future looked bleak.

    What is even more disturbing than Doo-Lap’s (for those who don’t know , a doo-lap is what a partially bald guy combs over his bald area with what is left of his own hair and at times supplemented by a hair piece) inability to take command of the english language and piece together a full and recognizable thought without making childish faces and stepping all over his tongue is his organization’s not seeing any of this dirt coming from the Clinton Crime organization. I have been a Trump supporter since day one and while I now think he’s a flip flopping piece of shit he is still a 1000% better choice than the tyrant in waiting. Only a Pence total destruction of this muslim loving commie clown Tim Kaine in tonight’s VP debate can help resurrect what is left of Trump’s campaign.

    Forbes magazine had a very interesting article on The Donald and his finances quite awhile back. I wish I had saved the article now. *sigh* (Sorry … I know, hindsight and all that …) Anyway, he has had many highs and lows but one thing is for certain the dude can make real money, create real jobs and know how to maneuver around our Nazi government red tape. Gotta credit him that anyway.

      My father was a real estate developer and home builder, It was up and down, more down then up all based on the economy and interest rates. Carry forwarding losses were what kept him in business.

    I was thinking about the NYT and the story of Trump’s taxes this morning when it hit me that this was a coordinated attack. During the debate Hillary mentioned Trump probably didn’t pay taxes and then all of a sudden the NYT story comes out. There is no doubt in my mind Hillary and the NYT were in cahoots on this from the beginning.

    How is it that we the great unwashed could write a litany of retorts with which doo-lap could easily and completely sink his criminal opponent yet his elite handlers paid in the $100’s of thousands are speechless (pun intended) when it comes to destroying this carpet munching hag? I, as did many, probably millions, of others set all time personal highs for cringing while hearing and seeing his first debate act; actually it wasn’t a debate it was a beat down. If he’s intending to f__k us in the end (pun intended) then he should give up the ghost and get on with it so we can begin planning for the fate awaits us all, except for Wall Street, the muslim world, the political class and the elites of course. Her election will be their dream come true. And for the more than half of the american voters who will put her in office: F__K YOU!

      You might want to check out my other post I did today in the comments. I really am throughly disgusted by the whole thing. Why should I as a blogger beat my fingers on a keyboard to try and justify his candidacy when he won’t make an effort to put on a decent debate and text in the middle of the night when I know he has been told by his team to stop. Disgusted.

    You know what, the very fact that one’s taxes are PRIVATE & his was stolen, is a crime, PERIOD! How about them apples, sue, sue, sue. I could care less what he did or not pay. How about the fact the FBI agreed to destroy the laptops of the 5 who received immunity. Just grinds my rearend, just saying😆.

      The only person he can sue is the one who sent it anonymously to the NYT, if they can find out. The paper is safe because the info (though private) is true.

        Could be. Or Marla Maples. Or some disgruntled employee. He’s successful enough to have earned an enemy or two. The only thing I’m sure is that I didn’t send them!

        I thought of that. These were really old tax returns that seems a bit odd for an employee to hang on to a very old return.

        Some outlets think he might have revealed them himself!

    What Trump needs, is to be schooled by Don Rickles, on how to answer Hillary.
