10. Ghost writer says Sr. Seriously Haunted by Swatches


Trump is a moron fixated by fabric swatches.

Trump, the billion-dollar loser — I was his ghostwriter and saw it happen


Charles Leerhson
Yahoo.com, May 9, 2019

EXCERPT...

I tend to see my time with him — the first part of it, anyway, before things started going bad in a hurry — as his “King Midas” period. I never said this to him; if I had, he probably would have thought I was suggesting he enter the muffler business. But there was a stretch of months when everything he touched turned into a deal. The banks seemed to accept the version of him depicted in his first book, “The Art of the Deal,” which we now know from his previous ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz, was entirely invented. They believed it over what they saw on his balance sheets or heard coming out of his mouth, and they never said no to his requests for more money. Often they came up with things he could say yes to before he could think of them himself. As a result, a failing real estate developer who had little idea of what he was doing and less interest in doing it once he’d held the all-important press conference wound up owning three New Jersey hotel-casinos, the Plaza Hotel, the Eastern Airlines Shuttle and a 281-foot yacht.

A real go-getter, right? But Trump’s portfolio did not jibe with what I saw each day — which to a surprisingly large extent was him looking at fabric swatches. Indeed, flipping through fabric swatches seemed at times to be his main occupation. Some days he would do it for hours, then take me in what he always called his “French military helicopter” to Atlantic City — where he looked at more fabric swatches or sometimes small samples of wood paneling. It was true that the carpets and drapes at his properties needed to be refreshed frequently, and the seats on the renamed Trump Shuttle required occasional reupholstering. But the main thing about fabric swatches was that they were within his comfort zone — whereas, for example, the management of hotels and airlines clearly wasn’t. One of his aides once told me that every room at the Plaza could be filled at the “rack rate” (list price) every night, and the revenue still wouldn’t cover the monthly payment of the loan he’d taken out to buy the place. In other words, he’d made a ridiculous deal. Neither he nor the banks had done the math beforehand. Or perhaps Trump knew it because someone had told him, but didn’t want to think about it. The one thing he is above-average at is compartmentalization.

long without ever suffering consequences. I can't believe that his luck can hold on much longer. I really hope there is such a thing as Karma and I hope it happens in our lifetime, because I want to see that motherfucker completely humiliated, stripped of all his worldly assets and destroyed in every way possible.

by saying that he means "Democrat's" singular as a collective noun in the same way that Neil Armstrong said "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

One thing about Re-bumble-icans is that they never admit they're wrong. Never, ever.

25. Actually, Armstrong always insisted that a word got lost in transmission:

"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."

Makes a lot more sense that way. It's possible he actually didn't say it (despite best-laid plans), but he could be forgiven for having a bit of adrenaline fog at that moment.

35. Either way, the phrase is iconic.

I don't really care too much about the typo in Trump's book.

I care more that he is an absolute idiot who has no business writing a book about something he knows NOTHING about. I also care that Republicans cheat to get the reputation up on those pieces of garbage by buying the book in bulk.

The ‘Epstein-Barr’ Problem of New York City’s Dalton School

JERRY LAMBE
July 13th, 2019, 10:50 am

Excerpt...

Epstein, who was charged last week by federal authorities in the Southern District of New York with sex trafficking with sex-trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex-trafficking, was a 20 year old college drop-out when he was hired to teach at Dalton by the school’s headmaster Donald Barr in the mid 1970’s. Donald Barr was the father of current United States Attorney General William Barr, who is currently overseeing Epstein’s prosecution.

According to at least one former student, Dalton alums have long joked about Barr’s hiring of Epstein..

“The joke has been [that] this is the Epstein-Barr problem at Dalton, said Harry Segal, a 1974 graduate who is now a senior lecturer at Cornell University and Weill Cornell Medical College, in an interview with the Huffington Post. Epstein-Barr is a type of herpes virus best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis.

Scott Spizer, who graduated in 1976, said that Epstein was most remembered for his “persistent attention” on teenage girls in the hallways, recalled a night when the young educator showed up at a party where Dalton students were drinking.

“I can remember thinking at the time, ‘This is wrong,’” Spizer said in an interview with the New York Times.

I guess since that other $150K Parscale grift closed, they need to funnel her money by other means.


His girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, an ex-Fox News television personality who is a senior fundraiser for Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, will read the audiobook, and also helped him work on it. Guilfoyle tested positive for the coronavirus last week.

“That’s how we came up with the idea for her to do the audiobook,” Trump Jr told Axios. “We would take turns reading the chapters out loud for flow ... Love in a time of Covid.
