Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, August 07, 2017

Paul Rosenberg, Salon: It's not just that [President] Trump's loyalty is only to himself, as should have been obvious given the scores of associates he's wooed, ripped off and discarded over his long career, including his own lawyers, at times. Rather, it's the centrality of this cycle to the way that Trump operates. It's not a bug, or a feature, it's the feature of his career -- a window both into his abnormal psyche and into the cultural and political dynamics that have allowed him to flourish in the midst of more general ruin. ... The large mass of the 3,500 Trump-involved lawsuits uncovered by USA Today exposes the reality of how Trump operates. He rips off everyone he works with, from hourly workers to the biggest banks.

"No candidate of a major party has had anything approaching the number of Trump's courtroom entanglements," USA Today reported. Nor did other entrepreneurs. "I think we have far less litigation of companies of our size," Alan Garten, general counsel for the Trump Organization, told them. But a comparison with five top real-estate executives found that "Trump has been involved in more legal skirmishes than all five of the others -- combined."

Amen!

If only Hillary assembled a ballroom filled with victims of Tchump's decieitful business ways. The sole proprietors or small businesses that were short-changed or stiffed by the Donald. Or with union workers who were bypassed by Tchump for Polish temp workers who were paid in vidka and told to sleep on the job site.

The sad part is that many of his base know this about him. They think the fact that he rips other people off shows that he's strong and smart. But they think it won't happen to them. You'll see plenty of trolls here who think that way.

I hate the guy but this is barking up the wrong tree. He's loyal and generous to some and not to others, like all billionaire businessmen. And the lawsuits? Google lawsuits against Warren Buffet.

If you can't see the difference between Warren Buffet owning stock in companies involved in scandal and in Donald Trump directly defrauding people you need a wake up call.

Yes Warren Buffet has been sued a lot, but he has never lost or bought his way out of a fraud case. His lawsuits are the kind of normal litigation that surrounds buyouts of companies. For example he was sued for "only" offering 31% over market value for BNSF.

Trump on the other hand has lost or settled 175 fraud cases.

#7 Total agreement, just pointing out all billionaires have lawsuits.

Trump is greedy self serving scum. I've said it since the 1980's. He will sell out his sons if it profits him.

He's loyal and generous until he turns on you... Only loyal to some of his family even.

Sure, that makes sense, many off his supporters like him because he rips people off. Now I know why you love Bernie, because the education that you so badly need will be free.

FISHPAW, most of his supporters think that is fake news and until he screws them personally so to speak, they will continue to think that way.
