    Donald Trump Thinks America Is About To Fail

    When Donald Trump launched a mortgage company a couple of years back it was a sure sign that the mortgage business was heading for serious trouble. Now that he says that America is doomed by $125 oil, we’re thinking that’s a powerful contrary indicator. Maybe the worst really is behind us? (By the way, our […]

    Act Now

    Deny it all you want but I know it’s been a longstanding fantasy for many of you to be the son (by marriage) of a bankrupt, overly tanned businessman who’d fuck you for a nickel, steals coins that spill out from the one-armed bandits when the blue hairs hit the jackpot in AC, requests gold […]

    Donald Trump: Kicking Ass And Handing Out Money

    Donald Trump couldn’t make money with his now defunct mortgage business, and now it seems he’s just decided to give money away instead of bothering to lend it out. We’re thinking of it as the ultimate subprime loan. According to the Observer’s Media Mob column, Trump’s people are giving out free money at this very […]

    Trump Fires His Own Mortgage Company

    Donald Trump is shutting down Trump Mortgage, the mortgage lending company he launched with an audacious press conference in the atrium at Trump Tower. This is a very special moment for DealBreaker because we covered the launch back in April. It was one of those burning, shining moments that mark market manias. A half dozen […]
