Donald Trump: Goldbug

Sure, this makes sense.

Venal New York City-based contractor - and Screen Actors Guild member - Donald Juarez Trump released his financials today, because that is what inevitable President-Elects do.

The 92-page omnibus of vagaries filed by Trump and his Trumpeters, and released by the FEC is chock full of fun little facts.

For instance, did you guys know that the aggressively teetotaling Trump makes between $50,000 and $100,000 a year selling Trump Vodka through his Trump Drinks Israel subsidiary?

Or that he collects a pension from a union? That's right, thanks to The Apprentice, El Donaldo collects a few grand from the Screen Actor's Guild.

But perhaps the most humorous revelation is that Donald is an honest-to-god goldbug.

According to his filings, the man with flaxen hair is holding between $100,000 and $250,000 in actual, physical gold.

While the actual monetary value for a guy like Trump is pretty insignificant, the ability to check "goldbug" off of his "crazy conservative bona fides" list is almost priceless.
