“I’m the king of debt. I’m great with debt, nobody knows debt better than me. I made a fortune by using debt. And if things don’t work out I renegotiate the debt, I mean that’s a smart thing not a stupid thing. And I made a fortune.
” So say’s Donald Trump.
Now I don’t know about you but making a fortune off debt means you had to cheat someone out of the money you owed them. And Donald’s right. That’s exactly what he does with everyone he works with. That’s why banks in NY lock their doors when they see him coming.
But never mind. When asked by Noral O’Donnell on CBS Donald said that he would handle America’s crushing debt, by using the same methods he used in business. He’ll “renegotiate the debt.” In other words, walk America through a form of national bankruptcy. When pressed by O’Donnell he did what he always does and changed his statement saying, “I wouldn’t renegotiate the debt.”
O’Donnell then pressed him for an answer. “The current plan that you’ve put forward, would according to independent economic analysts add 30 trillion to the deficit, because you’re going to reduce taxes, cut entitlements, and sell property.”
His answer–“I’m going to bring back jobs. I’m going to bring back businesses. We’re going to have people come into our country.” How he plans to do that remains a mystery. Well, not the part about bring people to come into the country. We know how that works.
Janet Yellen, Chairman of the federal Reserve, blasted you saying that there would be very sever consequences if an elected president tried to renegotiate the nation’s debt.
Trump looked directly at O’Donnell and said, “I wouldn’t renegotiate the debt.”
Now I’ve discovered the reason for this flip flop. It’s his memory. Yes, he and his surrogates have said on just about every network in the world that Trump has one of the greatest memories in the world. Odd thing though. During his deposition in the Trump U case, he was asked by the lawyer for the plaintiff if he hadn’t said not once but several times that he has one of the all-time great memories in the world. “Yes, I said that,” said Donald. The Lawyer–And do you believe that’s true? that you have one of the all-time great memories?” Trump–That I can’t tell you. I can’t tell for other people, but I have a good memory. Lawyer–You’ve stated, though, that you have one of the best memories in the world. Trump–I don’t know. Did I use that expression?
Well, when the dust settled Charlie Gile for NBC research counted 59 times that Trump claimed to not recall something. Now how can that be. This sworn testimony was given just three weeks after he told us about his amazing memory.
And guess what else he can’t remember. He can’t remember where he found evidence for Clinton’s server hack claim. You see, when he makes a claim but can’t produce the evidence, he cites his awesome memory as proof that it happened. When he’s evading a claim made by someone else, he can’t even remember how awesome he is at remembering. Isn’t that great?
But wait, there was something else I wanted to tell you but I can’t remember what it is! Oh I remember. I heard one time he thought he was wrong, but it turned out he was wrong about that.
