Don't ya <3 a good Classic?

Paul does too.

Especially when it
details his continued
corruption + disloyalty
2 America since,
September 1, 1990

But, it's a grt point
2 exposing Donald tRUmp,
Ultimate Phoney
"After the Gold Rush"
by Marie Brenner
Highly recommend this read.

Phoney Orange Mob Blob
had just purchased
118-room former estate of
Emily Post,
aka Mar-a-Lago.

"tRUmp was seen
on the news shows
offering his services
2 negotiate w
the RUssians."📌

"Talk he might run 4 pres."📌

National Register of Historic Places, 1972
National Historic Landmark, 1980

Due 2 unfortunate circumstances,
Dina Merrill
Adelaide Breevort Close
Eleanor Post Close,
decide 2 list the Palm Beach estate.

Extorted the hm
"Ivana Trump had has SO MUCH
publicity [poor dear],
she now offered interviewers a
press kit of flattering clips."📌📌📌
[Don't say it. Very B Sanders.]

Business *bond btw Donald + Ivana📌

"Had become less man + wife,
> like 2 *ambassadors,
each w separate agenda."📌
"Those phonies!
Do u think if I wanted 2B member
['the B & T']
they would turn me dwn?

I wouldn't join club,
bc they don't take
blacks + Jews."📌

Oy. Bhubbie. Relax, all ready.
No one invited u.

Nice lawyers ya had then.
Very mob-like n smear tactics.
Did ya use press kits?
More on Blob's Palm Beach extortion
involving race + religious issues,
sending out fuqqing *tapes
thru mob *lawyers.

Landed tRUmp his lease deal
4 tRUmp golf course action.

Airport noise? Huh?
Someone needs an
extortion abortion.

This is 1986👇
Ivana toasts tRUmp.
"Well, I'm done", DJT says
tossing his napkin on table.

Palm Beach
had been Ivana's *idea.📌

"Ivana, like Donald,
living out a fantasy.

She had seen in tRUmp life,
everything + everybody
appeared 2 come w a price."📌
"I would never buy Ivana
any decent jewels or pictures.
Y give her negotiable assets,"
says DJT

Ivana "had gotten out of
Eastern Europe by being tough
+ highly disciplines,
+ she had compounded her skills
thru her husband,
the master manipulator."📌
"Ivana [tRUmp]
had learned
the lingua franca
in a world where everyone
seemed 2B using everyone else
in a relentless drive 4 power."
Time 4 detour.

Let's talk
Czechoslovakia’s Státní bezpečnost (StB)
4 quick sec.

"Czechoslovakia’s Státní bezpečnost (StB)
carried out long-term spying mission
against tRUmp following his marriage
in 1977 2 wife, Ivana Zelníčková.

Operation run out of Zlín,
provincial town
in south-west Czechoslovakia
where Zelníčková was born."
"Donald [tRUmp's]
wknd guests were
4 he trusted few people.

Invited 1 of his construction execs,
mayor of West Palm Beach+
frmr governor of NY,
▪️Hugh Carey,
"Society Carey",
boosted by HUGE
tRUmp *donations,
had been crucial 2
tRUmp's early *success[fraud|failures]."
Hugh Carey
rose 2 power as Democrat
outside his party’s machine.
Began 1974 campaign
4 governor as
recently widowed congressman
from Brooklyn,
long shot who was not taken seriously,
yet he cruised 2
1 of the most resounding victories
in state’s history.
"Ivana's imperial-couple syndrome."
"they knew Ivana,
like Donald,
inventing + reinventing
herself all the time."📌

"When she had 1st come 2 NY
she wore helmet hairdos +
bouffant satin dresses."

"[Ivana] had never seemd 2 lrn
real way of truly rich,
the art of understatement."
"Dozens of silver frames
on the many end tables.

The frames did not contain
family photos, but magazine covers.
Each cover featured face of
Donald tRUmp."🤣

"In 50 yrs Donald + I
will be considered
old money
like the Vanderbilts,"
she once told Dominick Dunne.

[In dreams]
"This past April,
when [tRUmp's]
empire was in danger of collapse,
tRUmp isolated himself in
small apt on lwr flr of TT"

tRUmps had separated.
Ivana remained upstairs
in family triplex w
its beige onyx floors +
low ceilings w busy murals.

"Ivana had been completely humiliated"
Donald humiliated Ivana
thru his public *association
w Marla Maples.
[A five-six-seven-eight!]
Talent, she was NOT.

Don Jr. Tears.

"How can u say u love us?
U don't even love urself.
U just love ur money."
12yo Jr. tot said
w tears running down
his ugly chinless face.
"Ivana now considered tabloid heroine
+ popularity seemed in inverse 2 [Blob's]."


"Ivana tRUmp negotiated
4 marital property agreements
over 14 yrs,
she was suing her husband for half."
Donald J. tRUmp:
"When man leaves woman,
especially when it is perceived
he has left 4 piece of ass
- a good 1! -
there R 50% of population
who will love woman who was left."

Ivana's PR guy:
"This is all very calculated.
Ivana is very shrewd.
She's playing it
2 the hilt."
"4 days,
Mob Blob
rarely left his bldg.
Hamburgers + French fries
sent up 2 him."

"tRUmp had millions of dollars
signed away in personal guarantees.
Personal debt on tRUmp Shuttle alone $135M.

Bear Stearns📌
had been guaranteed
$56M 4 tRUmp's
Alexander's + Amer Air positions."
"Taj Mahal casino
had a complicated
set of provisions
which made tRUmp
responsible 4 $35M📌

tRUmp personally guaranteed
$125M 4 Plaza hotel.📌

In West Palm Bch,
tRUmp Plaza so empty
it was nicknamed
"the tRUmp See-Through."
$14M debt.📌
tRUmp's mansions in
Greenwich + Palm Beach,

$40M in outstanding loans.
[That seems low value 4 assets]

WSJ rpts tRUmp guarantees
could exceed $600M📌
A History of Donald Trump's

His boasts👈

range from $150M - $7B.

Now, that's what we call a spread.
Autumn 1980
"Did u see
NY Times
said I looked like
Robert Redford?"

"tRUmp is a
head swiveler,
always looking around
2 see who else is in room."

"Donald was child
who'd throw cake
at BD parties,"
brother Robert says.
"D would come +
glue all my bricks"
"tRUmp was all ready married 2 Ivana,
former *model + *athelete
from Czechoslovakia."

"1 night in 1976,
tRUmp had been at bar
Maxwell's Plum.📌
The very name
evokes era of frantic singles
underneath the Art Nouveau ceiling"


Maxwell's Plum
More like Caligula's Bath House.

The Romantic Encounter
"MP was a place where flight attendants hoped 2 find bankers, + models looked 4 dates.

Donald met his model,
Ivana Zelnickova,
visiting from Montreal."📌📌📌

tRUmp + Ivana
were married in NY
[April 7,] 1977.📌

Mayor Beame

Roy Cohn,
tRUmp's longtime
mob lawyer + mentor,
had prepared paper 4 Ivana.

"U have 2 sign this agreement."

Cohn offered 2 find Ivana a lawyer.

Friends said
"[Ivana] was terrified of Cohn."📌
"Ivana was terrified of Cohn
+ his power over Donald.
1st [prenup]agreement
gave Ivana $20K/yr."

2 yrs later, Cohn says
"U better redo agreement, Donald,
or ur gonna look hard + greedy."

Ivana resisted.

"I want 5 children,
like in my own family,
bc w 5,
then I will know 1
will be guaranteed 2 turn out like me."

"tRUmps + their baby,
Donald junior,
lived in a Fifth Ave apt"
w furnishings from
"Casa Bella"

"tRUmp just completed
Grand Hyatt
on E 42nd St,
+ considered a comer."
"He'd put together
Fifth Avenue parcel
that would become tRUmp Tower
+ had enraged city estab w demolition of
Art Deco friezes
that had decorated
Bonwit Teller bldg."

"Who cares?" he said.

"Even then,
tRUmp's style
was 2 turn on his audience."📌
"He tooled around in a
silver Cadillac w "DJT" plates
+ tinted windows
and had a former city cop
4 his driver."📌

At lunch that day,
"He had invited
▪️Stanley Friedman
2 join us.

Friedman Roy Cohn partner,
Part of Bronx *political machine,"
who would later go 2 jail.
tRUmp + Friedman
spent most of lunch
swapping stories about
Roy Cohn.💃

"Roy Cohn could
*fix anyone in the city."

"He's a lousy lawyer,
but [Roy Cohn's] a genius,"
tRUmp said.

"Get me the

on the phone,"
after lawyer tells
"Plaza hotel might
never bring $400M
he paid 4 it."

"I have a personal guarantee
the Sultan of Brunei
will take me out of Plaza
at immense profit."
"Bankers + lawyers
in conference room
looked at tRUmp
w combo of awe + disbelief.

The line between a con man
+ an entrepreneur is often fuzzy.

"They say Plaza worth $400M?
tRUmp says it's worth $800M."

The convention center plan

"Someone finally read contract.

[tRUmp] wasn't entitled

It was unbelievable.
He almost got us

[MOB "what's n it 4 me?"]
"tRUmp's 1st

FT followed suit.
Had Bunny Lindenbaum

Deep political corruption
w Fred tRUmp.
In 1966,
Donald was entering
Wharton Business School.

Fred tRUmp + Bunny Lindenbaum
were investigated
4 their role in $60M
Mitchell-Lama mortgage.

"Is there any way of preventing a man who does business in that way from getting another contract w the state?", Com Chair asks.
"Donald told rptrs
tRUmp Village
had 22,000 units.
Only had 11,000 units.

Speaking of units.🍄

Sorry. *It's distracting.

tRUmp's cousin
▪️John Walter
once wrote an elaborate
Family Tree.
"We shared same grandfather,
and he was German.
So what?"
Family members say
Fred tRUmp
felt compelled 2 hide his German bg
bc most of his tenants were Jewish."

"After war,
he thought Jews
would never rent from him
if they knew his lineage,"
says Ivana.

"My father wasn't German;
my father's
were German,"
says Donald.🤦‍♂️
Donald's cousin

"wrks 4 tRUmp Org,

including history.
So do RUssians.]
Ivana tRUmp
told her lawyer
▪️Michael Kennedy
"[tRUmp] reads book
of Hitler's collected speeches,
'My New Order'
in a closet at his office,
as if it were a grenade.
Hitler's speeches,
from his earliest days up thru the
Phony War of 1939📌
reveal Hitler was
master propagandist."
it was my friend
▪️Marty Davis
from Paramount
who gave me a copy of
'Mein Kampf',
and he's a Jew."

Davis gave tRUmp 'My New Order'.
Davis is friends w tRUmp.
Davis is NOT Jewish.

I had these speeches
+ I'm not saying I do,
I would never read them."
says DT
"Perhaps [tRUmp's] possession of
Hitler's speeches merely indicates
an interest in Hitler's genius
at propaganda."

“There’s nobody that has
the cash flow I have,”
tRUmp told WSJ
long after he knew better.

“I want to be king of cash.”

More like King of lies!
King of Phony.
"My mother had
sense of the grand.
I can remember
her watching
coronation of
Queen Elizabeth📌
+ being so fascinated by it.

My father had no interest
in that kind of thing at all."

Oh look,
Donny persuades Fred
2 put him in chrg of his
3 siblings' trust funds.

Wouldn't U?🤦‍♂️
tRUmp Mentality

Donald became more forceful
+ grew even closer 2
his mobbed up father, Fred.

"I had 2 fight back all the time."

"These guys like my father R tough.
U have 2 be hitting back!
Otherwise they don't respect u!"

And, some things NEVER change.

When Don exploded,

He + Blaine went 2 her family."
Fred tRUmp had

It wasn't necessary
2 exchange money 4 such favors.
This was a classic marker";

Same Story:📌
“NY City is a very tough place,”
Ivana tRUmp told me yrs ago.
“I’m tough, too.
When people give me
a punch in the nose,
I react by getting even tougher.”

And when Ivana says *tough,
she just means,
she's a fuqqing screamer.

Screaming at her employees
had become part of her hallmark,
perhaps her way of feeling power.

Later, in Atlantic City,
she would become known 4
her obsession w cleanliness.👈
Oh dear. Not good *sign.📌
“Stockholm syndrome”📌
now used by Ivana’s lawyer
Michael Kennedy
2 describe her relationship w Donald.
“She had mentality of captive.
After a while
she couldn’t fight her captor anymore,
+ she began to identify w him.
Ivana is deaf, dumb + blind
when it comes 2 Donald.”
Here's a New York Magazine
article, tRUmp: The Soap

Dysfunction alert.

Lotta mob.

Ivana is cold Czech woman.

"Determined 2 bring glamour 2 tRUmp Castle,
she became famous 4 her attention 2 appearances,
once moving pregnant waitress
off floor + N2 clown's suit
2 disguise her condition."
What is this?”

“It is our new nuptial agreement.
U get $10M. Sign it!”

“But I can’t look at this now, it’s Christmas”

Trump seemed extra concerned
she sign papers,
perhaps bc an AC photographer
was threatening 2 blackmail him
w photos he had taken of
[tRUmp] + Marla Maples.
She signed papers
$10M + mansion in Greenwich, CN.

Later, tRUmp would tell reporters,
“Ivana has $25 million.”


"tactics he used in business
he now brought home.
“Donald began calling Ivana
+ screaming all the time:
‘Don’t know what UR doing!’”
tRUmp speaking 2 his wife Ivana:

He began belittling her:

“That dress is terrible.”
“You’re showing too much cleavage.”
“You never spend enough time w the children.”
“Who would touch those plastic breasts?”
“I think it was Donald’s master plan
2 get rid of Ivana in Atlantic City,”
1 of her assists told me.

“By then,
Marla Maples
was in a suite at
Trump Regency.

Atlantic City was 2B
