Trolling Trump

February 9th, 2017 · Posted by Skuds in Politics · No Comments · Politics

I really don’t know how this is not a thing yet, but surely the best way to have a bit of fun with Trump would be for loads of people on Twitter, and news broadcasts, and newspapers to routinely refer to him as “the millionaire Donald Trump”.

The superficial reason is that it would wind him up, since he is defines himself by his wealth, but there is more to it than that. There has been speculation that he is not worth nearly as much as the up to $10 billion that keeps getting talked about, usually by Trump himself.  One journalist even estimated his worth to be in the ‘mere’ hundreds of million dollars of liquid assets. Throughout all of last year there was pressure on Trump to disclose his tax returns, which traditionally presidential candidates have done, and he still hasn’t.

I just think that calling him a millionaire (which most of us wouldn’t mind being called) would put him in a position where he had to prove otherwise or get used to the label.
