Imagine Our Surprise
When We Discovered
We've Ignored Trump
We were horrified the other day, when coming across a great item on Donald Trump, to realize that in three years, Working With Words has never once mentioned The Donald. We hereby apologize for this terrible oversight. How, you ask, could we have ignored such a seminal figure in American culture? Alas, we have no good excuse. So we thought we'd make up for that lapse today.
The item which brought him to our attention anew was from Jason Kottke:
"Donald Trump is getting $1.5 million for an hour-long keynote speech at a Los Angeles real estate expo. Prediction: He will say nothing revelatory or interesting. Another prediction: The type of audience that attends real estate expos that headline Donald Trump won't notice."
No word yet on how Trump's silly $5-billion lawsuit against a myth-piercing book is progressing. But if he were even 10% as smart as he'd have you believe, he might have figured out by now that his suit will only accomplish one thing: bringing even more attention to a book that nicely documents how he's mostly full of hot air, and not even close to a billionaire to boot. You can read the first chapter here.
