Trump Kicks Biographer Off Golf Course

Electorally winning the most powerful job on the planet hasn't changed the vindictive and vulgar, Donald J. Trump, or filled the bottomless pit of insecurity he carries around in his bloated body. 

Trump hasn't an ounce of graciousness or human decency in him, and he proved it once again this New Year's weekend when he kicked biographer, Harry Hurt III, and David Koch off his golf course out of malevolent pettiness.

In a display of embarrassingly childish revenge, Trump once again showed America that he's unfit to be president. Be prepared for more of his "psycho-sociopathic disintegration."

From Henry Hurt III's facebook page:


Donald Trump personally booted the author of an unflattering biography off Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach on Friday. 

Harry Hurt III, who penned the 1993 biography, Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, had come to play with billionaire industrialist David. H. Koch, a Trump club member, and two other golfers. Hurt, who has a scratch handicap and plays in colorful knickers, walked over to Trump on the practice range prior to his group’s assigned tee time, only to suffer a tongue lashing from the president-elect. 

“I said, ‘Congratulations, sir,’ and shook his hand,” Hurt recalls. “Trump said, ‘You were rough on me, Harry. Really rough. That shit you wrote.’” 

Hurt says he looked Trump in the eye, and said, “It’s all true,” to which Trump rejoined, “Not in the way you wrote it.” 

Among the juicy tidbits in Hurt’s tome was Ivana Trump’s allegation in a sworn deposition that Trump had “raped” her during their divorce battle. Trump told Hurt it was “inappropriate” for him to play at the club, and had his security detail escort Hurt, Koch, and their playing partners to the parking lot. 

“David [Koch] was appalled,” says Hurt. “He branded Trump ‘petty’ and vulgar.’ 

We played Emerald Dunes instead, which is a much, much better golf course than Trump International.”

My wife knows a person who has had many dealings with Trump. This gentleman told my wife he is without principles and would have sold his own mother if it would have made him a buck.

Trump is without a doubt a vile pathetic narcissist. How so many in our country were and remain duped by this POS is beyond the ability of rational folks to understand.

Jerry Critter said...

He's just a classless ass, like many of his supporters.

It's tribalism, Les, that excuses the most repugnant behavior in Trump because he put an "R" after his name, only recently. Trump is everything the right -- especially the religious right -- detests in a human being. But even they have abandoned their values and principles and religion in service to ideology.

Imagine the anger and hatred Trump must carry around in his bloated body for everyone he imagines has offended him. In 70 years on this Earth and because of his nasty, narcissistic belligerence, those numbers must be legion.

Happy New Year! And welcome to the Grifter-elect:'

"Trump spoke to reporters for four minutes before entering the New Year’s party, where guests included Sylvester Stallone and the model Fabio and for which invites had been sold at prices reported to be up to $575.

Aides rejected claims that the sale of tickets could constitute the sale of access to the president-elect and his family."


Shaw Kenawe said...

Jerry, we shudder to think of how he'll behave when he has the awesome powers of the presidency in his little hands. What he's been all his life and recently in his role as President-elect is what we'll see in his presidency: A vindictive, petty, vulgar narcissist, unable to rise above any perceived slights.

62 million Americans voted a very small man into a very large job. My prediction is that Trump will surprise us -- with the type of contemptible behavior we Americans have never seen in a US president.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Ivana Maples,

Right. The Trump Empire is not going to grift all they can from a Trump presidency? Yeah. Right.

skudrunner said...

Golf Course was his and like blags, if it is yours it is your rules. You don't fine it strange that no MSM has reported this incident.

It is to early to say how he will act as president but we should all hope he acts in the best interest of All the country.

Happy New Year to all. Hope 2017 is safe and you indeed smile sometimes.

Dave Miller said...

Meanwhile, word out today from Press Sec Sean Spicer is that Trump will reveal on Tuesday or Wednesday who hacked the DNC...

That should be a fun few minutes.

What a fool he was to run for President when he handles criticism so badly. Think of all the absurd personal attacks Obama has suffered in office. He couldn't have functioned at all if he'd constantly reacted like Trump does.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Skud,, no rules were broken. Trumps fragile ego was broken. Any other real man who doesn't carry the insecurities Trump drags around would have acted like a president and let bygones be bygones. Trump is no such man. He's a petulant little child always looking to get even with anyone who slights him. A terrible character trait in any individual and a tragedy in a world leader. Nothing good will come of it.

skudrunner said...

All the hysteria over DJT is probably unfounded. Remember the clamor when BHO was elected. He has no experience, he was a lemonade stand manager, he will turn us into a socialist country, he will ruin us, he will take from the rich and give to the poor.

None of these things happened. Obama did not turn us socialist, he took from the middle class to give to the poor but the rich did just fine and we survived Jimmy Carter so that shows how resilient we are a a nation. The pendulum swung left and that didn't work so now it will swing right.

As to thin skin don't ask Gen Crystal if bho has thin skin.

Just as @Rational Nations USA points out - after a campaign of disgusting, abhorrent, and juvenile behavior, it defies all logic that anyone who wasn't an active member of the KKK, neo-Nazi's, alt-Right, etc. would even vote for him.

But; what's even more puzzling is the continued support from those who did in fact place a narcissistic buffoon in the Oval Office.

I know the vast majority of Americans base their election decisions on perhaps five minutes (at most) worth of research by watching either Fox News or MSNBC, or simply vote party line. But; what do they continue to see in this despotic slime ball?

What in their alternative universe could possibly be influencing such idiotic, blind support?

Is it pride, in which they refuse to accept the fact that they screwed up royally? Is it the psychological blind devotion to “team”? Or, is it that we’ve placed more credence on the human race than we should have; precipitously assuming we’ve advanced beyond racism and bigotry?

I typically try to avoid using the following comparison, as many childish commenters use it as a means of denigration against those they don't like (including the writer(s)); they use it like a child uses "booger-eater", or "four-eyes" as a juvenile attempt to insult.

However; there are so many frightening parallels to this election and the rise of Adolph Hitler, it's indeed an appropriate, however terrifying, term to use now. He most certainly manifests many of the same despicable character/mental deficiencies as did Hitler; extreme narcissism, paranoia, distrust for the media, racism, bigotry, intolerance, etc………….

We’ve seen many disagreeable characters in the Oval Office, but I never thought we'd personally witness such a despotic idiot find his/her way to the front of the building, much less filling office.

Rational Nation USA said...

Indeed Infidel. When the time arrives that Trump faces the intense scrutiny President Obama has, and it will, Trump will simply become unhinged. A rather disturbing thought.

Jerry Critter said...

CNN is reporting on it.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Bob Connor: "What in their alternative universe could possibly be influencing such idiotic, blind support?"

It's tribalism, Bob, pure and simple. The Goopers and especially the "religious" right glommed onto Trump because he wasn't Hillary.

Trump is a sexual pervert, a serial adulterer, a championship liar, a misogynist, anti-Muslim, anti-POW, anti-Hispanic/Latino, mocker of disabled people and an insecure narcissistic bully. He knows nothing about the Bible -- what the religious right considers essential for an American president, and he knows even less about the Constitution, what any thinking American would hope a president would have a working knowledge of.

He had to pay $25 million to settle a law suit for fraud over his Trump University scam, and he has at least 70 other outstanding law suits for fraud outstanding against him.

Yet we have people like skudrunner coming here to defend this walking disaster because he's not Hillary or any other Democrat. People like skudrunner are willing to accept Trump and "give him a chance," when any other sane person would reject this repulsive demagogue.

That's how sick the right has become.

Jerry Critter said...

skud has to defend Trump. He has no where else to go. He stands for nothing. He has no positive core beliefs. He is anti-this and anti-that, just like Trump. In virtually every one of his posts, he demonstrates what is wrong with the Trump world.

Shaw Kenawe said...

"Indeed Infidel. When the time arrives that Trump faces the intense scrutiny President Obama has,"

Trump has already whined that the press has too much freedom and that he'd like to loosen the libel laws so people (Trump)can more easily sue the press.

Remember when the nuts on the right warned America that Mr. Obama was coming for their guns? They fell for that line of b.s. because it played into their Obama Derangement Syndrome. Obama never said he was coming after anyone's 2nd Amendment rights.

America now has a P-Grabber-elect who actually has talked about fundamentally changing the 1st Amendment, and not a peep out the mobs who supported him (Trump is white/orange, y'know, and rich), and the Goopers actually are talking about coming after Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

The silence from Trump's mobs is amazing, isn't it.

Dave Miller said...

Jerry... positive beliefs? Does Trump have any beliefs? What core principles that will guide him can anyone point to?

Not stances on individual issues, rather, overall views that consistently inform those individual stances...

I've not seen any.

Jerry Critter said...

Dave, neither have I. Trumps only belief is profit, and he will do anything to make himself a profit no matter the cost to people, country, or world.

skudrunner said...

JC, I didn't vote for DJT but am I glad -H- didn't win, you bet. Unfortunately the alternative to DJT was an admitted liar who is above the law in everything she does.

Profit is horrible. It helps employ people, is the reason companies expand and helps build for a retirement, yep profit is evil and has no good qualities. I doubt DJT will aid big business more than BHO who has been great for the richest and devastating for the poorest and middle class. Are you sure you are not RN because both of you just sling arrows.

Ms Shaw, Do you believe Medicare and SS should be altered? This has been talked about for decades, along with tax reform, and nothing has been accomplished.

Just so you know, and of course Ms Shaw. BHO is not a bad person just unqualified for the job. I hope for all of us DJT does a better job.
Are the poor and millde class better off than they were five years ago, nope, are the RICH very much so. Is it because you have prospered under BHO at the peril of millions.

Rational Nation USA said...

skuddy ole man, what's up? You seem more incoherent and illogical in your statements today.

Perhas you could cite some specific examples of your assertions, preferably with links to credible sources.

Jerry Critter said...

Where did I say profit was bad? Are you that bad at understanding the written word, or are you simply twisting it, once again, so that you can be critical of what someone else wrote?

skudrunner said...

JC, From your own words "Trumps only belief is profit"

You inference is profit is bad.

RN, Google poverty, black youth unemployment, wage growth since 2008, stock market since 2008, number of millionaires in 2008 and in 2016.
I think you will find all the proof you need. The the coasters and rich Colonists have done very well under bho so it is no wonder they give him high marks

Jerry Critter said...

skud - "You inference is profit is bad."

No skud. My statement was about Trump, not profit. The only inference about profit is yours. Look at the statement. What is the subject? Remember your English classes.
