Trump’s Problem With Women

I’ve lost the pointer to where I found the link that sent me here…

May 18, 2016

The New York Times’ front-page article last Saturday on Donald J. Trump’s dealings with women forced me into a weekend of self-examination. As much as I support Trump, this isn’t a cult of personality. He’s not Mao, Kim Jong-un or L. Ron Hubbard. We can like our candidates, but still acknowledge their flaws. No one’s perfect.

I admit there are some things about Trump that give me pause. I’m sure these will come out eventually, so I’m just going to list them.

First — and this is corroborated by five contemporaneous witnesses — in 1978, Trump violently raped Juanita Broaddrick in a Little Rock, Arkansas, hotel room, then, as he was leaving, looked at her bloody lip and said, “Better put some ice on that” — oh wait, I’m terribly sorry. Did I say Trump? I didn’t mean Trump, I meant Bill Clinton.

Hang on — here we go! Knowing full well about Bill Clinton’s proclivity to sexually assault women, about three weeks after that rape, Trump cornered Broaddrick at a party and said, pointedly, “I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate the things you do for him. Do you understand? Everything you do.”

No! My mistake! That wasn’t Trump either. That was Hillary Clinton. … But this next one I’m sure was Trump.

Hit the link to read it all… well worth it to “remind” all the FUBARs done by Billy Boy while being Molester In Chief…

Then ponder him hanging around the White House with nothing to do but “help” the interns…

Madam Hillary has BIG problems in Bill, and saying she would delegate some of her responsibilities to an unelected / retired old goat does not improve them…

    Hey, Us women really really LIKE a handsome wealthy ALPHA MALE! (And I am not tallking about that old goat named Clinton.)

    William Clinton Photo March 2015
    Born: August 19, 1946 (age 69)

    Donald Trump
    Born: June 14, 1946 (age 69)

    I took that photo from Red State and the drivel and outright lies in the article about Donald Trump was incredible. No wonder they banned me and the rest of the people at Conservative Treehouse!

    I went out and bought copies of Trump’s books. His basic message has not changed in 20 years. He understands that a strong healthy economy is good for ALL businesses. His businesses are rooted in the soil of the USA and can not be pulled up and transferred to China or India. If the US economy fails he loses money and he has had that driven home.

    Trump’s four bankruptcies were Chapter 11 reorganizations (named for its location in federal bankruptcy code), which are designed to restructure businesses without shutting them down completely. The purpose is to “save” the business, as opposed to other forms of bankruptcy which would liquidate the company… [so Trump did what he could to save the jobs of his people.]
    Bankruptcy 1: The Trump Taj Mahal, 1991

    Bankruptcy 2: Trump Plaza Hotel, 1992

    Bankruptcy 3: Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts, 2004

    Bankruptcy 4: Trump Entertainment Resorts, 2009

    Trump’s bankruptcies line up fairly well with US recessions.

    @Gail – Bankruptices are not an end. They are a way to preserve a company that runs into a cash flow problem (some are an end). As such, it protects not only the investors, but the vendors so that one vendor cannot grab all the assets of a company and leave the others with nothing.

    There is chapter 7 – which is the liquidation of a company. ANd that is used sometimes. But again, that merely allocates the assets equitably to all claimants.

    GM was never allowed to go that route, so some people were illegally robbed. GM was not saved. The cancer that caused them to get into that position was the only thing saved.

    Phil Jourdan, I am aware of that.

    It is why I posted the fact Trump used chapter 11, reorganization that helps save people’s jobs instead of chapter 7 liquidation which kills jobs and the company. Remember the Progressives are trying to use the bankruptices against Trump so the difference between chapter 11, reorganization – save (some) jobs vs chapter 7 liquidation – kills jobs and pays claimants, (the HATED Capitalists) needs to be emphasized.

    Sorry I did not do a better job of that.

    I am trying to contrast Trump with Romney. This is how Romney is portrayed.

    …Bain Capital’s purpose was to make money for its investors, and it did so hand over fist….. Along the way, it purchased at least five companies that subsequently ended up in bankruptcy even as Bain walked away with eye-popping profits:

    American Pad & Paper: Bain invested $5 million in the small paper company in 1992, and reportedly collected $100 million in dividends on that investment. AMPAD went bankrupt in 2000, laying off 385 employees.

    Dade Behring: Bain Capital invested $415 million in a leveraged buyout in 1994, borrowed an additional $421 million and ultimately walked away with $1.78 billion. Dade filed for bankruptcy in 2002, and 2,000 workers lost their jobs.

    DDI Corporation: Bain Capital reportedly invested $46.3 million in 1997, reaping $85.5 million in profits and an additional $10 million in management fees. When the company later went bankrupt, 2,100 workers were let go.

    GS International: In a somewhat less profitable transaction, Bain Capital invested $60 million in 1993 and received $65 million in dividends. This company, too, went bankrupt in 2002, and 750 workers lost their jobs.

    Stage Stores: Bain invested $5 million to purchase the company and took it public in the mid-’90s, reaping $100 million from stock offerings. Stage filed for bankruptcy in 2000, and 5,795 workers reportedly were let go.

    Romney himself profited handsomely from his time at Bain Capital. Although the exact details of his personal financials are not available, news reports estimate his net worth at somewhere between $190 and $250 million, much of it derived from his Bain Capital days. Very rough math might suggest that Romney made as much as $20,000 per job lost.….

    American Pad & Paper: Chapter 7

    2002: Dade Behring reorganizes under Chapter 11 and becomes a public company, Dade Behring Corporation.

    Out of Court Workouts & Assignments for the Benefit of Creditors
    “Represented DDi Corporation, a control board manufacturer, as a debtor-in-possession in a pre-arranged Chapter 11. Negotiated complex negotiations with the company’s major creditors that allowed the company to file a pre-arranged bankruptcy case…”

    GS International = Group Simon International??? There seems to be no information on the net on this bankrupcy.

    Stage Stores, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2000

    So only one of Mitt Romney’s/Bain Capital’s was a chapter 7 from what I can see. Big difference is in each case Romney made money while Trump did not. The spin miesters will of course ignore that.

    Gail and Phil.
    In business not all decisions work out so companies crash and burn. That is a healthy thing which ensures that bad ideas die. So who cares if some of Trump’s companies failed?

    In government bad ideas just get more funding. Thus you get monstrosities like the EPA, the TSA, the VA, the DoEd, the DoE and on and on. These “Services” can’t go bankrupt because there is no “Market Test”.

    Liberals say that closing these government departments would not save much money which is true if you look only at their budgets. However the real benefit of shuttering these organization is that they will no longer be able to smother the creativity of wealth creators.
