Get Trumped

I read a fabulous article in the Wall Street Journal about the Donald Trump lawsuit. Seems Trump is suing the author of TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald, Tim O’Brien, for defamation. The book put Trump’s net worth in the $150 to $250 million range. Trump says that’s an outrage and insists his net worth is in the billions. He argues the number the author quoted ruined his public image.

Yeah, the author is the one who makes Trump look bad. Riiiiiight.

So, Trump was deposed. During the same he said he bases his net worth estimations on “mental projections.” In other words, he lies about his assets. What a surprise. Regardless of how silly this sounds, Trump is going after O’Brien and says:

…he will “wish he never heard of that God damn book” and predicted that “the publishing company will pay me hundreds of millions of dollars” as a result of the suit.

Explain to me why people admire Trump.

And why isn’t B&N carrying the O’Brien book?
