Presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to rub people the wrong way …
On top of slamming Mexicans, flaunting his wealth and most recently, claiming that Sen. John McCain, universally regarded as a war hero, is “not a war hero,” America’s current resident bad guy throws CNN anchor Anderson Cooper under the bus — in fact, he slams the media altogether.
On Wednesday, a combative Trump responded to Cooper’s inquiry about his negative poll numbers in several states by saying, “Let me tell you, the people don’t trust you, and the people don’t trust the media. And I understand why,” he said. “Some of the political media is great and really honest. Even if they don’t want to be, they’re really honest. But I find that 60 percent, 70 percent of the political media is really, really dishonest.”
Before Cooper could get a word in, Trump continued, “I just think it’s really unfair. You’re talking about a poll I never even saw. It’s not even a poll,” Trump added. “You started off the interview with that. You don’t say I led in the Fox poll. I’m leading in the ABC/Washington Post poll. I’m leading across the board.”
It’s no surprise that Trump was so interested in making his point, that he didn’t initially hear Cooper open the conversation by questioning him about “positive polls.”
It’s safe to say that Trump was irritated for a variety of reasons: 1. He knows he’s screwed up in more ways than one, but is too proud to admit it or apologize. 2. The polls Cooper is referring to are a true glimpse at his weak campaign. 3. He’s a grown child used to getting his way and unable to handle criticism.
At this rate, we wouldn’t be surprised if Trump dropped the N-word, disparaged minorities altogether or made a run for Anderson Cooper’s job, seeing as he was recently kicked off the board of “Celebrity Apprentice.”
After all, he’s done everything from offered a wink-and-nod endorsement of incest, “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her,” he revealed on “The View,” to suggesting that beautiful women aren’t all that smart. “I go out with the most beautiful women in the world,” Trump said in 1999. “Certain guys tell me they want women of substance, not beautiful models. It just means they can’t get beautiful models.”
After all is said and done, Trump is a billionaire. His election filings to the Office of Government Ethics was released by the Federal Elections Commission and it’s 92 pages long. He disclosed his net worth is at least $1.4 billion. The Daily News outlines his earnings. Trump claimed ownership in 515 separate entities, he made millions off golf courses ($1.9 million from his new Ferry Point golf course, built by the city in the Bronx, plus $8.6 million to run Wollman Rink in Central Park and $588,000 in “admissions” from the Central Park Carousel) and luxury condos, plus a $14,000 salary from “The Apprentice.” Trump also earns between $50,000 and $450,000 per speech and receives a pension from the Screen Actors Guild worth $110,000. Book royalties: Time to Get Tough (2011) netted up to $100,000 and The Art of the Deal (1987) generated $50,000. He conservatively takes in $250 million annually, the report reveals.
His wife Melania receives $1 million annually for her cosmetics line. His daughter Ivanka, according to Forbes, has a net worth of $150 million. “Real Housewives of Atlanta” veteran reality star NeNe Leakes was cashing “Trump checks” and is a rich b––––!
