Donald Trump’s Tenants Now Welcome To Pay Rent In The Form Of Idiotic Publicity Stunts

On Thursday, the newest tenant in Donald Trump’s 40 Wall Street, a 70-story skyscraper in Manhattan’s Financial District, will hand Mr. Trump a security deposit worth about $176,000. No money will change hands—just three 32-ounce bars of gold, each about the size of a television remote control. … “It’s a sad day when a large property owner starts accepting gold instead of the dollar,” Mr. Trump said in an interview. “The economy is bad, and Obama’s not protecting the dollar at all….If I do this, other people are going to start doing it, and maybe we’ll see some changes.” [WSJ via BI]

    When is he going to start accepting canned food as payment, like the zero hedge readers?

    I'd like to deposit my 32-ounce (size of remote control) bar with his daughter.

    Jesus dude, just release a sex tape already.

    Considering that all commercial lease security deposits must be maintained in an interest bearing account, I doubt this will be the final form of payment.

    I’m starting to think it’s all a ruse. Bess never went anywhere and she’s posting under Matt’s name to see if we give her posts the same shit.

    Why not beads or tulip bulbs. Both were used in the past, with mixed results
