Trump's valuations are extreme but, perhaps, directionally normal in New York real estate
Why does Vicky always lean towards to romanticizing and excusing NY grifters? Because she's financially dependent on those men and desperate to keep her foothold in their circles? Trump's real estate grifts hurt tax payers who subsidize his crimes with increased taxes on the middle class. But you don't have much use for the middle class, do you Vicky? It's obvious you're in love with the marginally grifty types and thrilled to frame the egregious criminals with a softer narrative.
Because even if it's acceptable in an industry to lie, some lies are so egregious that people need to be punished for them. Wow, what a concept, being held responsible for your actions, absolutely shocking. No wonder your audience didn't care about Trump, they are him.
A NY jury would have convicted him in a minute BECAUSE people are sick of this type of real estate manipulations. Thats why they didn’t ask for a jury trial. The judge can’t just shrug his shoulders & say “everyone does it”. So he’s going to pay up. He’ll lose his “phony” image as a success because without daddy bailing him out at every turn he would have gone under decades ago. He would have also been in jail by now because he NEVER made an honest $ in his life. Bye Donny!
Your except on the co-owner of the GM building makes him sound halfway smart. Something must have happened to him after that ...
I’m definitely more interested in him being held accountable for election fraud, harassment of election workers, and his role in January 6. He’s absolutely disgraceful.
