Donald Trump is dueling it up with activist investor Carl Icahn over Atlantic City’s Trump Entertainment Resorts. Specifically, the two are fighting for ownership of the property, which Trump does not currently own. Don’s argument is that the casinos “would be hurt if Icahn won because it would take the Trump name off them.”
Cityfile reports that you now have the opportunity to sit your ass in the Don’s cockpit. Trump put his Boeing 727 up for sale yesterday. No word on the asking price but it’ll probably cost you considering that you’re getting three bathrooms with “gold plated sinks,” “abundant storage for fine china and crystal” and a “circular shower.” Make him an offer.

Could it be? Is the Donald about to fire bankruptcy? That’s what our totally unfounded (and usually spot on) sources claim. I have to say, looking at that monstrosity of a tower on the river in Chicago, I am unsurprised. (Let’s not even start on the Atlantic City casinos). We’d love to say Donald is everything that’s wrong with this country, but at least the guy tries to pay off his debts in bankruptcy (all of which so far have been limited to corporate bankruptcy though he had a close shave in the ’90s) and he’s certainly had a lot of experience in the field, so things are looking up for his creditors (maybe). So really, when you think about it, it’s actually Donald’s hair that is everything that is wrong with this country.
