The former grifter-in-chief has been skating around the Teflon rink of stiffing people for nearly all of his 75 years. Take Donald Trump’s fake Taj Mahal, The Chicago Tribune reported. No one fails in the casino business, because the house always wins. But The Donald managed to do so, even after he hauled in a real boxing ring and boxers and briefs. Oh wait, make that wrestlers. After all, this is the guy who paid his son’s Boy Scouts dues out of his nonprofit foundation. Check this out.
For 15 years, Trump implemented a tax fraud scheme that has his Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Allen Weisselberg indicted and probably headed to prison. Now that the Supreme Court turned corporations into people, maybe the Trump Organization, also indicted on 15 charges, will have to go, too. The country’s ex does not even pay his attorneys’ fees, so he had to reach down in the barrel of despair and pull out with the only attorney who would represent him. He was 84-year-old Ron Fischetti, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The Daily Show’s Jordan Klepper had fun with Albuquerque, New Mexico’s Mayor Tim Keller. The mayor was so frustrated with the deadbeat president, he mailed the bill directly to Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s primary resident. No luck there, so he has turned it over to a debt collection agency. Imagine what those annoying phone calls in the middle of the night would sound like.
‘Hello, is this the former president of the United States?’
‘No. I’m the current president.’
‘Mr. Current, I am calling in reference to an unpaid bill for Albuquerque.’
Trump then tried to disguise his voice in a bad imitation of an elderly woman:
‘This is Mr. President’s great-great-great-grandmother. No wait. Scratch that. I’m Mrs. Barron, And I can’t hear you.’
‘Can you hear me now?’
Albuquerque did not want him to come in the first place. For the past 18 months, the city has been trying to collect the $211,000 for costs related to a 2019 rally. that the Trump Campaign owed. Kelly said, according to The Huffington Post:
“He [Trump] should be getting these annoying voicemails that we get from scam companies where it’s like, ‘You owe debts.’
‘think Mar-a-Lago is now getting those calls.’
The mayor complained:
‘“In my mind, [Trump] owes us a lot more” than what the campaign was even charged “because there was about a day and a half where we couldn’t even function as a city.”’
‘Our resources for law enforcement are critical and limited.’
Klepper joked around saying that Trump virtually helped “defund the police,” because much of the funds would have gone to the police department.
But the New Mexico city should consider itself lucky. Trump stiffed El Paso, Texas for $570,000, according to the Huffington Post.
The Daily Show tweeted:
