LOL, you gotta love it when someone can embarrass the Donster.
Yes, what a sleaze! Being up front from the beginning by saying he didn't know where they were made. Talking about how difficult it is to find things not made in China (try this out and you'll see he's right). Don't want him in public office! Oh wait...he's not running. smh
Hmmmm imagine that... the Donald promoting something he has no idea about. Yea, right!!!
No different than P Diddy and his sweatshops.
Which is worse?
I thought deflecting and blaming someone else were only traits of a liberal....
Blaming whom for what?
All sorts of big names promote clothing lines that they either have little to do with (other than their name) or are only approving designs. They have little to do with the actual manufacturing of the clothing (or goods). Even those who are heavy into the design end.
True. Other celebrities have clothing lines. And more than likely many of their manufacturing sites are in China. We saw that even with the US Olympics uniforms.
But, here's the difference.
How many of them go on the David Letterman show specifically to tout Romney's China policy and get zapped by Letterman for their hypocrisy?
Right. Only Trump.
Oh come on, you could see from his expression that he knew what was going to happen when Letterman went looking for the "Made in China" tag.
Besides, if he cares where they are made, he should know where they are made.
It may be hard to find stuff not made in China, but it's not hard not to have your stuff made in China.
This is not his store. It is a joint venture with Macy's. Do you really believe he decided where they were manufactured? So, unlike every other celebrity out there who's come out with a clothing line, you expect Trump to design, build and staff a manufacturing plant to make his? Unlike everyone else? Really?
He was asked if he knew where they were made before Letterman went checking tags. He had already stated he did not know.
oh, he knew where they were made. he just didn't want to make himself look like more of a sleaze than he already is. right when he noticed Letterman eyeing the tag you can see Trump sort of "panic" a little. he said "i don't know, but..." basically trying to divert the convo before an ass is made of him.
Trump will advocate and argue until he's blue in the face if anyone worth noting, such as a politician he doesn't like or just another individual not in his favor, outsources their jobs and he'll promote Romney for his China policy, but Trump himself is allowed to do otherwise? ha.
besides, materials may be found in China that are harder to get in other places, but it won't kill his pocketbooks to have the materials shipped to the US.
EDIT: "You expect Trump to design, build, and staff . . . Unlike everyone else? Really?"
if he can do that for his line of stupid overpriced bottled water, then i don't see why he should have a problem with some (most likely not very good quality) ties.
