INSIDE “THE DONALD’S” $100 MILLION PRIVATE JET …
|| By FITSNEWS || The jury is still out on real estate mogul Donald Trump‘s presidential ambitions, but one thing is for certain … the man knows how to make an entrance.
Trump held a media availability aboard his custom Boeing 757 shortly after landing in Myrtle Beach, S.C. – where he delivered the keynote address at the 2015 S.C. Tea Party Coalition convention.
After offering the assembled media some appropriately punchy remarks (which we covered HERE), “The Donald” showed off his $100 million jet, which he purchased in 2011 from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
“Take a look around,” he told a crowd of roughly two dozen reporters. “Enjoy yourselves.”
The plane is every bit as glam as advertised – featuring polished wood tables and posh white leather seats with the Trump logo emblazoned in gold lettering. And yes, the seat belts are plated in 24-carat gold – as are the audio hook-ups for your iPod.
Take a look …

Super pimp, right?
Trump is protective of his pride and joy, too. While he was eminently affable and gregarious with his media visitors (“The Donald” posed for pictures with every member of the mainstream media who boarded his jet), he did frequently remind the photographers traipsing through the cabin to “mind the wood.”
If he’s elected will he use is own “ride” in place of Air-force One? God knows it needs a break after 8 years of Obama Abuse.
“Mind the wood”. I’ll be telling that to the girlfriend tonight.
The balsa you mean. Probably hasn’t had one since 1999.
I’m sure this 1 percenter will solve all of the rest of the 99 percent’s problems. This group has gotten richer while everyone else has stayed even or lost ground.
Aw hell man, it doesn’t matter who’s elected/selected. The 95% is gonna take a red, white & blue dick up the ass no matter what suit occupies the Oval office.
Trump moves us closer to President Camacho, so given that we are screwed no matter what I might down with that. I can take my anal rape a little easier if I get to see a President doing WWE style commentary or selling the next bill like Crazy Eddie the electronics guy….laughing makes the pain go away for a bit.
Given that…perhaps Socialism isn’t sounding too bad eh?
You really for Socialism dawg? That seems so 50’s/60’s.
Seems like Socialist leaders kill a lot of people. Not that democracies don’t, but usually it’s people outside the democracy. Socialist seem to like killing their own people. Pol Pot, Mao, & Stalin piled up the skulls of their own people.
There is a difference b/w despotism, Communism and Socialism.
Google the top 10 countries in the world by per capita GDP and then cross reference that with the top 10 best countries to live in. They are pretty much all socialist Western democracies.
Ok, here’s what I got by this:
Australia: Constitutional Monarchy
Canada: Constitutional Monarchy
San Marino: “parliamentary representative democratic republic”
Switzerland: Direct Democracy(with social democrats holding 2 of 7 Federal seats)
US: Constitutional Republic/Representative Democracy
Brunei: Constitutional Monarchy
Norway: Constitutional Monarchy
Singapore: Parliamentary/Representative Democracy
Luxembourg: Constitutional Monarchy/ Representative Democracy via Parliament
Qatar: Absolute Monarchy
So your statement doesn’t seem to reflect the reality.
In fact, if I was being generous and gave you Switzerland(which really a hybrid Republic/Democracy) and Singapore(which is anything but Liberal)….you’d still have the incontrovertible truth that having a Monarch clearly yields the best GDP per capita of the current systems of governance in the world.
Do you know what a constitutional monarchy is? It’s a figurehead. Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, Canada and the UK are as socialist as they come. They have elected members of parliament. Nice try though.
“Do you know what a constitutional monarchy is? It’s a figurehead. ”
Yes, I do. They are quite different from being “socialist”. Socialist policies are passed, but as a concept they are not “endorsed” as a system of gov’t because it would cause an immediate flight of wealth from the country.
If any these mentioned countries actually renamed themselves and structure their gov’t to promote socialism, like the USSR was formerly named, there would be an immediate outcry and loss of wealth.
You are also mistaken on this “figurehead” notion mentioned above, there hasn’t been a “constitutional crisis” recently in any of these countries above, but all of the Monarch’s have real power…and some might say that is a check(a la our President) against a severe violation of natural or common law.
USSR was a communist system of unelected and appointed political heads that forcibly redistributed goods and services without any real capitalist input.
The countries I mentioned of Denmark, Sweden, Australia, the UK, Norway, and even Luxembourg and Switzerland have elected parliamentarians who represent voters. If they have a monarch it’s only a figurehead. The Queen of England for example has very limited and largely symbolic powers. That’s why you never hear of the Queen “declaring war on Iraq” or “passing a health care law”.
Lastly, those same countries have socialist policies. If you do your research and swallow some pride you’ll see that the tax rates they have on the rich are well beyond anything here in the US. Most of them have a GST or VAT that is at least 10% and sometimes close to 20%. They all have universal health care and robust social safety nets from cradle to grave. The stuff that would make Fox News puke.
Yet, despite all that…they are (per capita) the most prosperous and happiest places on earth to live. Just the facts bro…just the facts.
“The countries I mentioned of Denmark, Sweden, Australia, the UK, Norway,
and even Luxembourg and Switzerland have elected parliamentarians who
Do you understand the difference between a representative government and a social democracy? “Social democracy”, aka, as “direct democracy”, rejects “parliamentarians”!
Per wiki on Soviet elections:
“thereby accurately translate the people’s decisions into
legislation, and be more responsive than a centralized parliamentary
democracy. Ultimately soviet democracy is based on direct democracy”
Additionally, all the Monarch’s in question have executive power. That they are only “symbolic” is myth- they just don’t go out of their way to rock the boat.
“USSR was a communist system of unelected and appointed political heads”
As I demonstrated above, that is patently false. There was a time under Lenin & Stalin where elections were manipulated, but once the Marxists got full control it was “direct democracy” all the way.
“that forcibly redistributed goods and services without any real
THAT, my friend, is what binds ALL forms of socialism together. Whether is Marxist, Lenin/Stalinist, etc.
You can not have socialism without taking from capitalist without their input. To redistributed, which is the fundamental quality of socialism under any guise, you do so forcibly.
Just the facts bro.
So to recap, you’re suggesting the USSR was a functioning democracy of full and free elections where reps where accountable to the voters and goods and services were freely flowing in the marketplace?
You’re suggesting that figurehead sovereigns in Europe are the real ones in power and that the elected members of their respective parliaments are just for show?
You’re suggesting that socialist leaning governments in literally the best countries in the world to live in are forcibly redistributing wealth by way of politburo’s and gulags and are not accountable to the voters that elected them?
“So to recap, you’re suggesting the USSR was a functioning democracy of
full and free elections where reps where accountable to the voters and
goods and services were freely flowing in the marketplace?”
No. I’m telling you the wiki quotes say it was a functioning democracy. I never suggested or implied or quoted that “goods were free flowing”…I have no idea where you got that.
“You’re suggesting that figurehead sovereigns in Europe are the real ones
in power and that the elected members of their respective parliaments
are just for show?”
No, re-read it. I said they have executive power but they don’t use it.
“You’re suggesting that socialist leaning governments in literally the
best countries in the world to live in are forcibly redistributing
wealth by way of politburo’s and gulags and are not accountable to the
voters that elected them?”
No, but I can’t help your reading comprehension beyond anymore after this because it’s too exhausting.
I said that Monarchy’s(most of which in the list are parliamentary hybrid) occasionally pass socialist policies.
You added all the “gulag and politburo” nonsense.
One other note:
“There is a difference b/w despotism, Communism and Socialism.”
The difference is only one of degrees for the most part, as the latter two especially specifically attack the concept of property rights…as least a “despot” could say, “I’ll allow you to own stuff”.
And when Hillary and Bill return to Pennsy Ave – Trump will become a Democrat again, and begin flying Barack and Michele around all the time in it, until of course it’s seized to pay off his huge debts. Ever notice in the picks, he only colors like a little of the hair, which he drags atop the rest. He’s the kind of guy you don’t let around your daughter.
From what I’ve seen, if your daughter is below knockout status there’s not much to worry about.
Ha! I knew it. He’s definitively got a 24k shiiter.
Light one up for us Snoop Lion while your on “da plane”.
“The jury is still out on real estate mogul Donald Trump‘s presidential ambitions…” Really? In which la-la universe is the jury still out?
Same one in which Ravenel was “gaining momentum” there for a long while…
I beat you to solving the hacking probe. See comment above.
Automatic AXE body sprayers as you come on board..for the full douche experience.
Gold plated of course…

Happy Ending of course.

It’s so obvious (and laughable) when one has never been there before….
Guess who didn’t get an invite… the dipshit who thinks he’s got SC’s #1 political blog.
Checked it just for shits and giggles, last post December 17th, 0 comments.
His blog is so wildly successful he can’t keep up with it anymore.
My guess GT has ‘several’ projects he works on and can’t cheat his employer/taxpayers by blogging from 8:00-5:00 (longer if overtime and weekends required) like some. :-)
So GT, tell us about the time you interviewed,,, ah, errr, ah… have you interviewed anyone we’ve heard of?
How much makeup did the Trumpster have on? He looks like he’s had a whole-head makeover. And who else dangles their tie down below their crotch?
Was Sic a little dazzled by The Donald? Sounds like it.
I think it may have been Will saying, “Mind the wood”.
Is it just me or does The Donald look like he’s hired Tammy Faye Baker’s makeup artist.
Her hair stylist too.
Fits…do try and get up off your knees and wipe your mouth please. Have some dignity man!!
Move over TRav!
Fits has a new man crush!
A liberal Oba-mite accusing another of blind man worship…LMAO…now that’s RICH….Talk about irony…Hahahaha…
Yen? Pound? Euro? Git yer soshulizums out our murika!!!
Wipe your nose.
But when you do it to Obama, it’s a sacrament of the Democrat Party and the religion of liberalism…right?
Wow, where did he get those neat Lincoln Town Cars? … Smooth!
Which finance company holds the paper on this “phallic” substitute?

didn’t even take you for a ride – chump. :)
Quotes from various authorities on the question, “Why did the chicken cross the road?”
Donald Trump: “Chicken? Chicken? That reminds me, I have to start working on my comb-over.”
Who’s hacking Who?
We know the DPRK was the dastardly vile villain that hacked Sony. How do we know? Well, the USA, and ROK cooperated to hack the very North Korean computers used to hack Sony. So why couldn’t we prevent the attack?
I’m going to says it before Goober Folks, “FALSE FLAG! FALSE FLAG!”
The USA launched the attack against Sony from DPRK computers so that we could cleverly catch them after the fact, as a way to justify our perpetual war to benefit the MIC and so Democrats could occupy.the Republicans neo-con war monger voter base.
I know Will is kicking himself because I figured it out first. I’m a frigging genius. ARE YOU JEALOUS, MIKE AT THE BEACH?
Sorry…it took me a bit to figure where his comment was (“above” doesn’t stay relevant for long on a post). First, I didn’t realize we were working the case! Cyber stuff is a bit outside of my wheelhouse. Second, I don’t really consider the NYT an investigative source for much of anything other than movie times. DPRK may well be involved, but I won’t believe it simply because our gov’t says so. I’m not quite conspiratorial enough for false flag stuff, but if you have cracked the case, congrats! I hope Sony cuts you a check!
“won’t believe it simply because our gov’t says so.”
Fits believes the government is lying if it could lead to more US foreign involvement. In other words for fits the truth is not important. What is important is to believe what supports his positions and to disbelief whatever weakens his positions.
Most recent data supports North Korean involvement in hacking Sony and Russian involvement in shooting down the jet and trying to fabricate false evidence that a Ukrainian jet shot it down.
I may not like Obama’s policies, but I try to look at economic data fairly. Recently fits published data showing more business failures than business creation. His claim was that this indicated there was no recovery. First, it was old 2011 data. Second, the 2012 data was available and showed the reverse. Thirdly, it is cherry picking of data. This particular stat has never been shown to be a reliable economic indicator.
OK, I’m tracking ya now…
FITS is very much into whatever they’re saying on Zerohedge.com, which is just about the biggest bunch of glass-half-empty crybabies you’ll read on the interwebs. Of course, they’re so notoriously wrong in their perpetually incorrect economic predictions that some of the investor sites to which I subscribe actually track their failure rate as comic relief…
It was first published by Jim Clifton, the CEO of Gallop, republished on Zero Hedge and several other sites. Haven’t seen any one challenge the story.
Waht a colossal suck up!!!!!!
Trump is exhibit A for why the tax code needs to be changed in the manner Obama will suggest this evening.
Did you suck his dick while on board?
Tiny, tiny penis.
