Guy With 11% of the Vote Of One Party Loses Support Of Wealthier Billionaire

Forbes reports that Mexican telecom billionaire, Carlos Slim, one of the world’s several richest men, severed ties with Donald Trump related to some undisclosed Mexican TV show.

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

1. How did the Trump name become a “luxury” brand? From bankrupt faux-Taj-Mahal-replica and other casinos bearing the Trump name, to made-in-China ties also bearing said name, we think we have a different definition of luxury: the other stuff for sale on Fifth Avenue… or Fourth Avenue, wherever that is….

2. How will the Donald react to someone richer than him dropping him? Trump reportedly said he had a Gucci store worth more than Mitt Romney. Of course that means nothing, except we hope for the day when Gucci dumps trump. Perhaps Gucci can remodel and move into the Abercrombie & Fitch store across the street. It’s not like A&F is going in any direction, other than “at least we’re not Trump.”

3. With some polls saying Trump has 11% of support of Republicans primary voters, which we equate to a minimal support of Americans, why is he still part of the media cycle? Oh right, to show us what an awesome business man he is by devaluating his last-name brand.  By the way, insulting Mexico, when you have a business deal to do a show in Mexico supported by Mexico’s wealthiest man = a poor business idea. C-List celebs have been fired for selling too little lemonade to their celebrity friends, to put things in context.
