Donald Trump Would Speak To The “Motherf*ckers” In China In A Way That Would Get Them To Either Quake In Their Boots Or Piss Their Pants In…

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

As you may have heard, because he’s said it a bunch of times, were Donald Trump to be elected President of the United States, his first order of business would be to “deal” with this China situation. Specifically, Trump has said he’d tell the Chinese that “If you don’t stop manipulating your currency, we’re going to put a 25 percent tax on your products that come into the US.” The Don has made the case that he’s uniquely qualified to run this country because unlike our pussy diplomats (who “went to school to learn how to be nice”), he’d “deliver to the message” to to China in away that would get them to take the threat seriously. Today during a town hall, Trump workshopped some lines and so far here’s what he’s got: “Listen you motherfuckers, we’re going to tax you 25 percent.”

And when it comes to gas prices, he’d take a similar tack with a simple “You’re not going to raise that fucking price.”

Did Jamie Dimon Tell The Coppolas What He Really Thought Of Godfather III Last Night Over Dinner?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We’d like to think so.

“Jamie Dimon had dinner last night with Francis Ford Coppola, Sophia Coppola, Mario Batalli, and Mikhail Baryshnikov at 21. Saw them while they were having cocktails, seemed like a good time, then they went down to the private dining room. Coincidentally they had to pass Donald Trump on their way down to the private room who just happened to be there eating with his family; Dimon shook his hand.”

Unlike the current administration, Busey says, Donald Trump cares about the deficit and will turn our reckless spending around. Not only did The Buse endorse The Don, but he’s announced he’ll campaign for him as well, having already come up with a acronym/slogan/Buseyism: T(aking) R(edirection), U(nderstanding) M(assive) P(ower).

Donald Trump Refuses To Take Any Crap From China, Bill Cosby

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

As Donald Trump has stated previously, were he to run for President (and he says he doesn’t want to but might have to because “the world laughs at us and they won’t be laughing at us if I’m president”), the first issued he’d tackle is “this business” with China. The Don says he’s uniquely to do so because 1) he “buys a lot of products from China” and 2) he knows how to “knows how to say things,” unlike our diplomats. Trump has said he’d put a 25 percent tax on China’s products that come into the United States and this morning on the Today show, he laid out the vicious rhetoric he’d use to make sure everyone knew to take him seriously.

“I would tell China very nicely, ‘Fellows, you’re my friend, I like you very much — and I have made a lot of money with China.’ I would say ‘We are going to put a 25% tax on all your products coming in’ and that’s going to do a number of things. Number one, as soon as they believe it will happen they will behave so nicely because it would destroy their economy.”

As for anyone who doesn’t think Donald is deadly serious about maybe running, he’d like you to know that 1) “This is very serious- I always take things seriously but never like this” and 2) You can go fuck yourself, just like Bill Cosby.

Trump: The US Should Be Renting Land To Gadhafi And Then Reneging On The Deal

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

As you may have heard, Donald Trump has been mulling a run for president, which he says he’ll make a final decision on by June. In the meantime, he’s been putting his credentials out there, in case anyone thinks he’s not the right guy for the job. In terms of dealing with foreign leaders and dignitaries, The Don says his experience cannot be beat (and should he turn down the president gig, feel free to offer him Secretary of State, a position for which he’s also eminently qualified). “I sell them real estate for tremendous amounts of money,” he said. “I mean, I’ve dealt with everybody.” To that end, a quick story to illustrate why you should vote Trump.

As he tells it, not too long ago, Trump brokered a deal with a guy who’s been getting a lot of press lately.

“I rented [Gadhafi] a piece of land. He paid me more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn’t let him use the land,” Trump boasted. “That’s what we should be doing. I don’t want to use the word ‘screwed’, but I screwed him.”

The land in question was some space in Bedford, NY, where Gadhafi wanted to pitch a tent for one night while he was in town giving a speech at the UN. Of course, at the time, Trump apparently didn’t even know Gadhafi was the guy renting the space, but those are just details and of little import. Mr. President!

Former CFTC Chair Wants To Get Paid!

Former Commodities Exchange chairman Martin Greenberg is suing former NBA star Alonzo Mourning’s charity after he won $1 million for hitting a hole-in-one at its golf tournament — then was denied the prize after it was claimed the course had been improperly shortened. Greenberg hit the hole-in-one at the Alonzo Mourning Charities tournament at Donald Trump’s National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, NY, last August. But the insurer backing the event refused to pay up, claiming Greenberg’s required 150-yard shot had actually traveled only 139 yards. [NYP]
