TRUMP DEAD.

Unfortunately, it is the wrong one.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/15/politics/robert-trump-dead/index.html

(CNN)Robert Trump, 72, the younger brother of President Donald Trump, died Saturday at a New York hospital, Donald Trump announced in a statement.

"It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight. He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again. His memory will live on in my heart forever. Robert, I love you. Rest in peace," the President said.


Donald Trump made a last minute decision to go to New York Friday to visit his brother as he headed to New Jersey for the weekend.
Robert Trump had been admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan.
Details of Robert Trump's illness have not been released. He had been sick for several months, a person familiar with knowledge of the matter told CNN.


Yeah. Donnie wrote that statement, and my neighbor's dog wrote War and Peace.

10. No way tRump wrote that.


First, it has some punctuation and isn’t laced with all caps.

Second, it exhibits a show of normal feelings of grief. The man is devoid of feelings except rage/anger. Normally, he’d be mad at his brother for taking the attention away from him. Imagine the nerve of that guy to die and divert our eyes to someone else.

29. Well, he likely knew his brother was dying when he used him for the lawsuit to

try and stop Mary's book. Lawsuit flopped, so what use did he have for Robert? None. Sitting by your dying brother's bed? BORING. Much more satisfying and fun to go play some rounds with a line of chumps just salivating, waiting to tell him how clever and exactly right he always is.

15. This is the brother he loved so much

and was such a best friend that when Fred Trump had Alzheimer’s Disease, Donald Trump tried to get Fred to change his will, cut all the siblings out, and leave everything to Donald.

This sad story is in Mary Trump’s book.

He is functionally illiterate and completely lacking empathy, the latter consistent with his personality disorder.

23. How to tell the statement was not prepared by Fat Donnie:

There is no mention of how Robert had predicted his brother would one day be one of the greatest -- if not the greatest -- presidents.

There is no mention of how much Robert admired his brother.

He doesn't offer sympathy to Robert's wife, Ann Marie Pallan.

He doesn't call Robert a cute name, like "Dumbo-Bob."

Here's what Mary Trump wrote in her book about the relationship between the two brothers:

“Donald had discovered early on how easy it was to get under Robert’s pale skin and push him past his limits; it was a game he never tired of playing,” Mary Trump wrote. “Nobody else would have bothered — Robert was so skinny and quiet that there was no sport in tormenting him.”

Robert's lucky that his hospital was located between the WH and the golf club, so Trump could drop by enroute the the country club mini-rally and say goodbye.

Of course, knowing Trump that last statement could be a lie to make himself look good.

30. Also, can you honestly imagine Trump saying "...we will meet again."

I really can't. Trump thinks of himself as immortal and would never say something like that.

Of course, when I read that line, all I could think of was "Hopefully soon!"
