The Donald and The Boss

How else could it end but with a shout-out to The Boss? Let’s just hope YF’s MLB predictions are as prescient as his picks for The Apprentice…..

Congratulations Bill! Go Yanks!

  • Instead of Jessica Simpson, for a real test Trump should have had Kwame manage a “meet and greet” with Kenny Lofton.

  • One other thing, a bit off-topic. I noticed that Trump claimed that rebuilding the three holes that slid into the Pacific at Trump National in Palos Verdes cost over $200M. If that is the case, then Trump is the worst speculator in the history of golf course speculating. Typical 18-hole golf courses cost about 1/8 to 1/10 that much, and that’s for the entire course, including a club house. Even factoring in his degree of so-called “luxury”, if he’s invested that much in re-constructing 3 holes then he’s either stupid or, worse, a liar. I won’t speculate about Trump, but as for his shout-out to the Boss, you know what they say about the company you keep…

  • Happily, the web offers tons of trivial but needed information to clarify the Donald’s ludicrous comments last night. He didn’t spend much of anything on this course, nor did he spend 200M to reconstruct it. He’s as trustworthy as a Peter Gammons trade rumor…
    “Trump National certain qualifies as the most expensive course in history. The total cost of buying the land and overhauling Ocean Trails clocks in at $261 million, including $61 million to rebuild the final hole — which slid into the Pacific a few years ago after leaking water lines beneath the course weakened the soil, causing it to give way. “It’s the most expensive course built by far,” Trump says. “Happily it wasn’t with my money for the most part.””
    Lastly, did I hear Trump channeling Wade Boggs last night and refer to himself in the third person, and prepositionally, at that?
