“All I Know Is What’s On the Internet”

    What’s truly bizarre is that even as a trust fund baby/family fortune inheritor surrounded by yes men, surely even DJ Trump – especially given the ups and downs of his businesses – would understand that information needs to be vetted before actions are taken … presumably he would not make a business decision absent due dilgence on the deal, contracts review, legal and title research, business case, P/L analysis, etc; how can a man in his seventh decade make this sort of statement?

    “All I Know Is What’s On the Internet” Sounds something like the average college student’s research philosophy these days.

    I am saying a prayer to Saints Patrick and Brigid that we are delivered from the invincible ignorance of this man.
