Real New Yorkers Knew A Fake When They Saw It, Fuhgeddaboudit.

To maintain a smokescreen of wealth, business savvy, intelligence, and know-how, Donald J Trump designed a devious strategy. If you can’t make it, fake it.
That strategy has been a strategy, not novel to Trump. It is a strategy that has been used by every cheap hustler, pimp, and drug-dealer.

Donald Trump report­ed­ly paid some­one to take his SATs. There are reports he did not actu­al­ly earn the degree he brags about from the Wharton School of Business. His ardent fight to keep his tran­scripts pri­vate feeds the nar­ra­tive that the man we know to be an actu­al dunce, is in fact a ver­i­fi­ably a dunce.
He antic­i­pates well, the ques­tions that will be asked about him, and so he assigns the things he is guilty of to whomev­er he deems as his ene­my at any giv­en time.
He demand­ed to see the col­lege tran­scripts of the immi­nent­ly qual­i­fied Barack Obama, even as he moved heav­en and earth to hide his. But there was nev­er any doubt about Trump’s ignorance.
Trump loves to talk about his Generals, until, of course, he real­izes that [his gen­er­als] can­not, and will not, sup­port a coup to keep him in pow­er against the Constitution’s dictates.
When it came time to serve in the mil­i­tary, Donald Trump, like so many of the priv­i­leged young men of his era, opt­ed to lie about his health to avoid mil­i­tary ser­vice. He claimed that he had bone-spurs. He was giv­en defer­ment after defer­ment, while prin­ci­pled patri­ots like Mohammed Ali went to prison.
As a sup­posed busi­ness­man, Trump has been an abject fail­ure, declar­ing a report­ed six (6) busi­ness bankruptcies.
In the decades that pre­ced­ed his ascen­den­cy to the US Presidency, Donald Trump posi­tioned him­self as a suc­cess­ful busi­ness tycoon in the cen­ter of New York’s Manhattan. The media played along with Trump’s gold­en ‑boy per­sona, even as peo­ple he did busi­ness with were left hold­ing the bag of their own bank­rupt­cies as he avoid­ed pay­ing them for work done on his behalf.

In the high soci­ety of Manhattan’s busi­ness and social cir­cles, Donald Trump’s fraud­u­lent gold­en-boy, mis­ter won­der­ful, car­ni­val-show was not lost on the real blue blood.
USA Today once said this of Trump, “Though he is the scion of a wealthy real estate fam­i­ly, the city’s old aris­toc­ra­cy nev­er quite accept­ed Trump. In a trib­al city, Donald Trump has no real tribe”.
The American Prospect writes, “Trump knows only too well that New York’s aris­to­crats have always looked down on him as crass and vul­gar, and he respond­ed to their con­tempt by becom­ing more crass and vul­gar than any­one could have imagined.
The blue blood nev­er accept­ed Donald J Trump, chalk it up to snob­bery, chalk it up to the idea that they know a fake gold coin when they see one.
Even then, the gullible main­stream media fawned over the wannabe emper­or who con­vinced him­self that the fake fin­ery he spun for him­self was enough to cov­er up his nakedness.
It did not!
“In the end, at least 73% of New Yorkers city­wide vot­ed against their home­town can­di­date in elec­tion 2020.
In Manhattan, where Trump lived before becom­ing pres­i­dent, every sin­gle vot­ing dis­trict went for Joe Biden.
Real New Yorkers have no prob­lem see­ing through a fake pimp or a fake gang­land wannabe.
One thing about real New Yorkers, they know the real deal.
