Letterman doesn’t drool over anyone, and if anyone can see thru Trump, it’s Letterman.

Don't remember that at all.

What Stern & Letterman and other talk show hosts loved was the stupid things he said...he was always a good guest to have -- not because he was a nice guy but because he said such ridiculous things.

Too funny.
And yet so true in many cases.

No one has ever been jealous of Trump. He’s probably the only silver spooner that has never made anyone envious or jealous.

At one time, I remember thinking that the guy had something going for himself, but once I saw Trump Shuttle, Trump Steaks, Trump Ties, and Trump University, I knew the guy’s chandelier was missing half its bulbs.

Even Donald's teeth try to escape when he talks.

He was well liked, and respected as a private citizen, and I might add, envied by many.


Bob.

I'm afraid you are completely wrong and I find your original hypothesis wrong as well. Trump has been disliked and often featured in the tabloids in NY for decades.

The mainstream sheeple just didn't know this.

Donald Trump has been a running joke in NYC for years.

Anybody who listened to him for more than 5 minutes knew he was a blowhard.

How any American could have respect for, much less be jealous of a man who told Howard Stern calling 'Ivanka was a good piece of ass' was ok is a mystery to me.

And he is our POTUS. G-d help us.
