Which 'Very Powerful, Highly Respected Banker' Did Donald Trump Allegedly Have To Carry Out Of The Waldorf Because He Was So Hammered?

Here's what the Don said last night on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" when asked about mingling with sauced up members of the business community:

"There's a banker -- and obviously I'm not going to mention names...I'll never forget a very respected banker, highly respected. And he was making a speech at the Waldorf Astoria. And he was very tipsy, very -- and shortly thereafter, he was just totally stone cold drunk. There were probably 2,000 people, 1,500 people at this dinner. It was a very big event. And we carried him out on his back. We carried him out literally on his back and -- And I never felt the same way about him.

Trump went on to say he can't even look at the guy anymore and that he's "lost all respect" for him. Choking back tears**, Trump wouldn't say who his fallen hero is or if he had to hold the guy's hair back as he vomited on the street corner but he did offer one more clue.

"He just retired. But he was a very powerful banker, one of the biggest."

So! Any guesses? A few things to think about: it's someone who's highly respected by the reality TV host and noted bankruptcy, not necessarily Wall Street at large, 'biggest' could be a physical description, and "just" retired could cover the period from now through 2-3 years back (making Jimmy Cayne, Dick Fuld, Ken Lewis and Stan O'Neal all suspects).
