I grew up with him living and doing his thing not that far from me in the 1980s.
By 1993, my opinion of him as a human being was solidified and has remained unchanged.
So, whatever he did in 1995, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2015, 2019 is through that lens.
I won’t be an unbiased witness. So, enjoy.
My opinion wavered a bit but this is when it solidified. So, this is who I’ve seen anytime I’ve seen him since in the past (2019-1993 = 26)
For the record, I was/am pro-Indian Casino. My bias is partially from knowing classmates from town that got ripped off by him during the Taj Mahal construction in Atlantic City, NJ.
So, there ya go.
Merv Griffin was behind Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. So, he was a TV God to me and anybody fighting Merv Griffin? I wasn’t going to like.
So, that’s my entry point with Trump. Ended with watching Indian Casino hearings on TV. In the middle was knowing folks ripped off by him. 1987-1993.
Oh, and his interview with Robin Leech and that book of his which was a joke at the time. I couldn’t take seriously anybody who took that book seriously.
Guy was a rich idiot. It wasn’t rocket science, even for me as a teenager to figure that out.
So, I can’t answer your questions and this is why.
