"Donald J. Trump has sold the Miss Universe Organization to the talent agency WME-IMG, the company announced on Monday.
The sale, the financial terms of which were not disclosed, came after a rough summer for the organizationís Miss USA beauty pageant in which two television partners dropped the broadcast in response to comments Mr. Trump made about illegal immigrants during his presidential campaign. "

He had to buy out his employer NBC's share, then sold it all within 3 days, then the business collapsed. He did great.

Then there's his great job with the PGA event at Doral, where the orange cannonmouth popped off a few too many times than were helpful for the sponsors' bottom lines, about Mexican immigrants and Mexicans, so the sponsors pulled out. Though the Doral Resort was the single most profitable business in the dRump business organization, his intemperate statements caused the major event held at it to move -- to Mexico. Doral City mayor Boria backed dRump's statements and gave him a key to the city, then the PGA pull out was a financial blow to the city and a threat to future investments by international businesses.

His performance and brags on these things seems similar to what it would be like if you came across your kid in the garage, and he's got the lawnmower taken completely apart, the gears are on the ground, the tires are off, there's nuts and bolts everywhere, the blade's laying over there, and as your foot slips on the oily spark plug, he says "look daddy, I fixted it!" That might be endearing, though time consuming and aggravating to deal with.

It's a lot less endearing when the kid is a large 70 year old overweight bald orange violent foul-tempered nasty-mouthed half-wiseguy nazi a hole egomaniac, and the mower is the economy, the country, and our planet.
