I think it was Cleopatra who said, “no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American People”.
How right she was. In case there was anyone left who thought Donald Trump was ever actually seriously considering running for president there is this from Wednesday’s New York Post (sorry, I don’t link to the Post):
NBC Universal, which was acquired by cable-TV giant Comcast this year, agreed to pay Trump and co-producer Mark Burnett an estimated $160 million over two years, according to sources familiar with the contract.
Trump, who was in Scotland yesterday touting his plan to build a new golf course, couldn’t be reached for comment. But sources said he will personally pocket $65 million a year, a substantial increase on his previous deal with the Peacock Network.Advertisements
