Donald Trump posed as a fictional spokesman for the Trump organization in the 80’s — fast forward to 2017 Trump’s facade now residing in the Oval.
The Washington Post has reposted a transcript of conversations between what is in all likelihood Donald Trump posing as a fictitious character known as “John Barron” and a Post reporter Sue Carswell from the 1980s during the Trump – Maples scandal. It’s now 2017 and Trump’s facade appears to be on full display for the American public in the Oval Office, being torn apart bit by bit by his detractors and with each failure as time goes by.
During the 1980s, Donald Trump was known to return reporters’ phone calls posing as a fictional spokesman for the Trump organization. The name Trump assumed varied slightly — “John Miller,” John Barron,” and “John Baron” — but the goal didn’t: Tout Trump as a hyper-cool, brilliant playboy. The Post got hold of one conversation between “Miller” and a reporter named Sue Carswell from 1991. The transcript is below, and it is amazing. Using Genius, I annotated it. You can too!
