12 Reasons why Donald Trump is an empty suit blowhard.


I implore anyone seriously thinking of voting for or commenting positively on Donald Trump to watch him in his own words.

Here is my impression of Mr. Trump, who of course I've already been familiar with for many years:

1) What is Trump passionate about except his own ego and money ?
2) Put aside the showboat sparring with other politicians, over personal squabbles for show, and very little remains.
3) Is it not distasteful to brag so much about how rich you are ?
4) Donald Trump inherited a real esate company from his father which was worth a half billion dollars many years ago. There is nothing exceptional
about his performance with that company. He did (4 times) bring parts of it public to suck in speculators and left them with bankrupt, worthless shares.
5) Trump is purposely tailoring his campaign to be the focus of attention on non-issues and personal squabbles because he knows the American media and populace is enthralled with petty sparring, like a wrestling match.
6) Trump here argues for a weak dollar, but a simple websearch reveals many comments in the past about how much the weak dollar helped him amass his fortune, quite simply, low dollar = high real estate. This is a self-serving position.
7) A weak dollar impoverishes those who do not have great number of dollars and who work for a paycheck, because their buying power is diluted. A weak dollar encourages foreign and multi-national purchase of American assets. It encourages immigration and foreign ownership of American properties, but does not encourage American ownership of foreign properties because the buying power is reduced.
The weak dollar is a tool of the .0001% to continue widening inequality.
8) Trump appeases the veterans by mollifying them, and encouraging military participation, yet he doesn't have much to say about a wise use of the military.
He is an opportunist buyer of politicians - by his own admission - what would be his criteria for military intervention ? It seems to be a low one that is dangerous.
He views military service as something for the little people to do, like cleaning toilets.
9) Trump makes a big deal about how he cannot be bought, however the real reason for this is that he is a buyer. He doesn't have to be bought, but that is because he
is already one of them. Some men never sell out because they never had anything to sell in the first place. He's already on the team, so to speak.
10) Trump seeks one-liner quips of intellectual reductionism to grab headlines and make for entertaining tv, but don't make any real changes. He's not bringing anything new to the voter for the voter's benefit or well-being.
11) His rhetoric is empty charisma. He's a perverse mutation of gluttonous monetarism and patriotic populism that seeks to mislead the 99.99% that they can "get ahead" by rubber-stamping the policies of the .0001%, when the truth is that the .0001% must be reigned in because they have unjustly been allowed to become the ruling class. Is America not about more than wealth worship ?
12) Trump was an ideological tiddlywink who spent his entire adult life doing nothing but accumulating wealth, hopping from wife to wife, seeking accolades as a business
icon while stealing money from shareholders and making large contributions to other politicians, regardless of their ideologies, just because they are in power. This suggests strongly that his moral compass revolves around money and power only, not deep-seated convictions, and certainly not any selfless concerns about the larger world or larger society. He is a man looking at the world every day saying, "What can I get from you today", not, "What can I do to make you better today".

I agree with everything you said. I'd still vote for him. I don't believe he's part of the political elite, and that's all I want right now. Someone NOT on that team.

I like what he says about trade , I think he will do wonders in that arena.

But the #1 reason I like him is on securing our border. Its just a matter of time, if it stays the way it is, America will one day regret it , but it will be too late.

Well so far I've liked what he has said about education, gun free zones, illegal immigration, the middle east, Isis, etc...

He hasn't said anything I disagree with yet. It's only been the media trying to twist around his words to destroy him...and other politicians.

Re: 12 Reasons why Donald Trump is an empty suit blowhard.
Wow Trump is really bringing out the envious side of the left. Their whole philosophy is based on envy of the rich and powerful. He's like Satan to them, and they're practically losing their minds tripping over each other to attack him. They forget how ugly they can appear to normal people when they unmask and really show what they are, jealous, grasping, vindictive and ruthless.

I is not very often that I read a post here on GLP and come to the realization that the OP thereof must incredibly dense.

There is a reason why Trump is making sure everyone knows EXACTLY how rich he is. The reason is because rich people do not need money and thus cannot be bought by money.

All US politicians are bought and paid for by lobby groups. Some of these lobby groups belong to non American organizations and thus do not necessarily want what is best for America.

Trump is telling the people that because of his vast wealth he cannot be bought. That he will make America great again, because he will do what is best for America and not what lobby groups demand. The lobby groups will have no say over Trump, because he does not require any donations from them.

Donald Trump is a ruthless amoral capitalist who knows how to win the majority of people.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but he isn't necessarily a "good" person. That said, I'd rather have a ruthless capitalist who has America's interest over a ruthless communist who caters to minorities in an attempt to destroy America.

He's a perverse mutation of gluttonous monetarism and patriotic populism that seeks to mislead the 99.99% that they can "get ahead" by rubber-stamping the policies of the .0001%, when the truth is that the .0001% must be reigned in because they have unjustly been allowed to become the ruling class. Is America not about more than wealth worship ?
12) Trump was an ideological tiddlywink who spent his entire adult life doing nothing but accumulating wealth, hopping from wife to wife, seeking accolades as a business
icon while stealing money from shareholders and making large contributions to other politicians, regardless of their ideologies, just because they are in power. This suggests strongly that his moral compass revolves around money and power only, not deep-seated convictions, and certainly not any selfless concerns about the larger world or larger society. He is a man looking at the world every day saying, "What can I get from you today", not, "What can I do to make you better today".
 Quoting: RDprofessor


I is not very often that I read a post here on GLP and come to the realization that the OP thereof must incredibly dense.

There is a reason why Trump is making sure everyone knows EXACTLY how rich he is. The reason is because rich people do not need money and thus cannot be bought by money.

All US politicians are bought and paid for by lobby groups. Some of these lobby groups belong to non American organizations and thus do not necessarily want what is best for America.

Trump is telling the people that because of his vast wealth he cannot be bought. That he will make America great again, because he will do what is best for America and not what lobby groups demand. The lobby groups will have no say over Trump, because he does not require any donations from them.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69868580


The only reason why Trump doesn't have to be bought
is that he's already bought.

I've seen the tone of this forum change dramatically since he entered the race. Obviously there are paid shills operating on his behalf, because hithero it was not a trait
of GLP to pound the dirt for billionaires who have nothing original or anti-establishment to offer.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69876656


Bullshit.
He is a Billionaire.
You cannot buy him.

You are against him, probably because you are afraid that he will make you have to work for a living instead of sponging off others.

Bane this OP loser.

Or at the very least, tell us who has bought Trump.

Give us some proof.

Re: 12 Reasons why Donald Trump is an empty suit blowhard.
Does your grandma own a farm where The Donald
wants to pave a parking lot for his casino ?

Donald does not respect private property rights.
He has bought politicians to enforce eminent domain
over private lands.

"After a developer identifies the parcels of land he wants to acquire and a city planning board approves a casino project, CRDA attempts to confiscate these properties using a process called 'eminent domain,' which allows the government to condemn properties 'for public use.' Increasingly, though, CRDA and other government entities exercise the power of eminent domain to take property from one private person and give it to another. At the same time, governments give less and less consideration to the necessity of taking property and also ignore the personal loss to the individuals being evicted."

Trump has attempted to use the same tactics in Connecticut and has championed the reviled Kelo vs. City of New London Supreme Court ruling upholding expansive use of eminent domain. He told Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto that he agreed with the ruling "100 percent" and defended the chilling power of government to kick people out of their homes and businesses based on arbitrary determinations:

Re: 12 Reasons why Donald Trump is an empty suit blowhard.
you know what's really funny about the Vera Coking affair ?

It was Carl Icahn who ended up with her house, because he

was the primary debtor of Trump's bankrupt corporation !


Neither the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority nor the owners of Trump Plaza expressed any interest in the auction.[1] The buyer turned out to be Carl Icahn, who held the debt on Trump Entertainment, owner of the Trump Plaza. He subsequently demolished the Coking house.

Re: 12 Reasons why Donald Trump is an empty suit blowhard.
I agree with you completely, but he obviously has tapped into something. I think everyone is starved for someone (even a pompous, blowhard) to publicly speak REAL speak and not game show host, PC, non-committal speak that all the other candidates use. They all talk for a 1/2 hour and say absolutely nothing, trump says something, idiotic and elitist, but it's something REAL

Bah bah sheepies!
This place is becoming more of a joke everyday.
People keep claiming that they are awake.Yet they continually keep doing things sheeple do like blaming the puppet prez,muslim fear mongering etc.

And in Trumps case he just says what the people here want hear;and they fall all over his jock,like playboy bunnys on Hugh Hefner.

Any proof Trump is going to do a single thing he claims he will do?Or will he just be another puppet empty suit that says nice things to get elected,and then just does the banksters bidding as usual afterward?

Anyone with brains will lean toward the latter.

OP may have a point or two, but it's still his opinion and mostly speculation.

Between Trump, Jeb and Hillary, Trump is BY FAR the better choice, even if he isn't perfect.

Let's be realistic, those are the three who have a real shot.

Ah.. feels like an old fashioned throwback to the days of Dubya.

When neo con sheeple accused anyone with a thinking brain; that could see through the 'war on terror'/'patriot act' BS, of being a non patriotic liberal that hated America.

Does it feel refreshing to have another pot of that koolaid after all these years?
