Okay, This is Disturbing: Would You Kill for Me?

I listened to Barbra Res before. She worked for Trump and was hired as one of the first female construction managers in NYC. At one time she admired the Trumps (this was marriage #1) and was grateful for the chance in the industry. But she has said that something changed the Trumpster during the mid to late 80's. They had a falling out over something and that was it--she was out. She talked about attending a funeral for a former colleague. Trump was also there and completely ignored her, pretended she was invisible. She said the whole thing was strange.

But this is chilling. A mobster mentality? Oh, yes.

That might have been more appropriate and to the point. But I just can't get over the question itself. What kind of person would even ask such a question?

as if it's just an idiom. It might be real. Remember when the young girl claimed that one of the girls she'd witnessed being raped disappeared? Where is she?

He has always been a sleaze and this woman is fooling herself if she thinks he wasn't a sleaze the whole time she worked for him.

as simply a vindictive or disgruntled ex-employee. She has openly stated how generous and supportive the Trumps once were. Now it's true she could have been myopic, seeing only what was immediately around her own situation. The 'surprise,' however, seemed genuine in past interviews. Her take has been very different from Trump's ghost writer of Art of the Deal, who has said the only Trump he's known is a narcissistic jerk with the attention span of a flea.

They both agree on one thing: Trump is seriously damaged and completely unfit for office.

That mentality was a known factor before the 2016 election. It was journalistic malpractice that the unpleasant details of the Trumpster's 'business' empire were not fully disclosed and exposed everywhere.

But then, the Trumpster was great TV, according to Jeff Zucker.

Ugh!
