Behind the Curtain - Donald Trump's Raping of Atlantic City

It is this year's version of Mitt Romney's Achilles heel. But instead of Bain Capital it should be denominated as Vain Capital. 

Mr. Trump's systematic rape and pillaging of Atlantic City left everything and everyone he touched in ruins. Jobs lost, businesses collapsed, bondholders and shareholders without revenue or recourse, while Mr. Trump walked away with millions, proclaiming his business acumen fully intact.

The crumbling casinos are but physical evidence of his failures. The Times pointed chronicling of Mr. Trump's exploitations, misrepresentations, miscalculations reeks of the worst abuse of those who put their faith, their money, their careers in the hands of a charlatan. 

Mitt Romney was a man of faith, who sought to convey an image of moral integrity but Bain Capital proved a jarring and damaging blow to him. Donald Trump has none of the qualities that one could admire in the last Republican nominee, and Vain Capital merely reinforces what we know to be true.

Behind the curtain, the Donald is no Wizard, but merely a greedy, selfish, self absorbed manipulator of facts and truth dedicated to no one other than himself.

The Clinton's with their foundation are "merely greedy, selfish, self absorbed manipulators of facts and truth dedicated to no one other than themselves."

Show me how the Clintons did no good with their foundation and that the purpose and end result of the work that they did was of no benefit to others. Show me

Your answer to the first response to your blog was spot on. And why did he/she put the comments in quotation marks?
The Times article highlighted that trump has no regard for others, just his personal wallet. He leaves behind a swath of destruction., not caring about the employees, left high and dry. I'm not concerned about the banks that he robbed, they should have known better.
But he makes a typical GOP person, as he has no social conscience.

Wake up you fools on the left. The Clinton Foundation is their hedge fund for the sole purpose of self enrichment. Donors to the Clinton Foundation who over the years have transferred hundreds of millions of dollars to the "charitable organization", bought political favors with the Clintons in exchange for their generosity. That has now been confirmed thanks to an ABC report which reveals how a major foundation donor - one who previously had practically no experience on intellgience matters - mysteriously ended up as a nuclear weapons advisor to Hillary during her tenure as Secretary of State.
All your sophistry will not change the facts. Less than 10% of so-called charitable funds go to good works.

Go to Fact check.org and learn that 89% of the money donated goes to charitable work. And don't call me fool. It is the Trump method of attack by character assault.

Between 2009 and 2012, the Clinton Foundation raised over $500 million dollars according to a review of IRS documents by The Federalist (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008). A measly 15 percent of that, or $75 million, went towards programmatic grants. More than $25 million went to fund travel expenses. Nearly $110 million went toward employee salaries and benefits. And a whopping $290 million during that period — nearly 60 percent of all money raised — was classified merely as “other expenses.” ...The Clinton Foundation may well be saving lives, but it seems odd that the costs of so many life-saving activities would be classified by the organization itself as just random, miscellaneous expenses.

thank you for merely reciting the Steve Murch comment regarding the Federalist allegations -

these misstatements were thoroughly rebutted by factcheck.org, which I would take as a given you did not read

it chronicles the good that was actually done with the monies received and the % that went towards good works - and the figure cited in the Federalist treats this Foundation as if it is a mere conduit that hands out charitable funds and not an operating enterprise that does the hard work of putting the $ to good purposes - read factcheck.org to find out the causes served and the $ directed to them

I also should mention that this is classic Trump style misdirection. Accuse the accuser, and turn defense of your deficiency into offense by turning focus away from your shortcoming.

Way to go Robert! Identifying and labeling Trump's verbal strategies for all to see, lets a lot of the hot air out of them....!
