Interesting that flashy billionaire Donald Trump, the thrice-married womanizer whose swinging lifestyle has been documented for all of his career, is the leader of virtually all polls of the current crop of Republican candidates for President.
Yep, the party of family values, claimed straight-laced behavior and purity is lining up behind the candidate who likes screwing women as much as he likes screwing his business partners.
Trump is married to wife number three, Melania, since 2005. His second spouse, Marla Maples (1993-99) showed up cavorting naked in paparazzi photos earlier this year. Ivana (1977-1992) is the current record holder in length of marriage to “The Donald” and is, like the other two spouses, a looker,
Marla, snapped in photos in March of this year, is still looking good at 46. Trump, who was singled from 1999 until 2005, managed to add a new notches to his bedpost before settling down, he claims, with Malania.
One has to wonder how a tail chaser who also owns Casinos fits into the family values bunch at the GOP. Maybe they consider his one-liners about immigration or Obama’s birthright more important than vaunted claims of morality.
I worked as a political operative for the national Republican Party in the 1970s and learned the party of the elephant should have used an oversexed jackrabbit for its symbol. Morality ranting Republican Congressmen like Henry Hyde of Illinois and Dan Burton of Indiana ended up in disgrace after they were caught fathering children out of wedlock. Right-wing darling Larry Craig got caught by police in an homosexual fling in an airport restroom.
Tea Party poster girl Sarah Palin had flings with basketball players while working as a TV sportscaster, bedded her husband’s business partner and snorted cocaine at parties in Alaska.
So maybe a bed swapping womanizer like Donald Trump is a good fit for Republicans. His sexist attitudes towards women are
Quotes from The Donald about women:
Beauty and elegance, whether in a woman, a building, or a work of art is not just superficial or something pretty to see.
When he was on The Apprentice “reality” show, Trump said he looked for three things in a woman: “Young, hot and open for business.”
Answering a question on whether or not his daugher, Ivanka, might pose nude for Playboy: “I don’t think Ivanka would do that, although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
His snide comment about his daughter makes one wonder: Is he advocating incest or just pursuit of younger women?
Trump is 69. Current wife Melania is 45. Ex-wife Marla Maples is 46. First wife Ivana is 66, closer to his age.
Although Forbes reports Trump’s financial worth is about $2 billion he also gone bankrupt four times: 1991, 1992, 2004 and 2009. Each of the financial failures were corporate bankruptcies from over-leveraged casinos and hotel properties in Atlantic City. He claims his wealth is far greater than what Forbes reports.
His questionable business deals often involve even more questionable business partners. For example, his Trump Hotel and Tower in Baku, the capital of oil-rich Azerbaijan is Anar Mammadov, the 34-year-old billionaire playboy. Father is a powerful and influential official int the country’s president, Ilham Aliyev and is involved in inside deals that loot the national treasury and were documented in an article, “The Corleones of the Caspian,” in Foreign Policy magazine.
Donald Trump is not your typical billionaire. He is the Paris Hilton of the business world: famous for being rich and famous. And he has proved again and again that he will go to extraordinary lengths to buff the public perception that he is a billionaire many times over and, despite what you may or may not think, one of the savviest businessmen around.
And Trump is, at the time of this writing, far and away the leading candidate in polls for the GOP nomination for President of the United States.
