Trump demands apology from Forbes for being cut from wealthiest list again

Donald Trump “demanded” an apology from Forbes magazine after it dropped him from its list of the 400 wealthiest people in the US for the second time in three years.

“I hereby demand a full apology from the failing Forbes magazine,” the former president wrote on Wednesday on Truth Social, the reportedly struggling social media platform he set up after being expelled from mainstream platforms over the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

Forbes released its Trump-free list last week, saying the his net worth was down $600m from a year before. Trump has been on the list since the 1990s, other than in 2021.

In response, Trump complained about “really dumb writers assigned to hit me hard” and bragged about huge leads in Republican presidential polling he holds despite facing 91 criminal charges and assorted civil threats.

would occupy the top 5 spots in perpetuity.

We all know who number one would be. The other four spots would be a revolving clusterfuck of incompetence and dumbfuckery.

Donald's ego is so outrageous he'd actually be proud to be numero uno.

Already can't afford the lawyers he has and is in need of more just for the criminal cases against him. And nobody is taking his I'll sue you threats seriously anymore. He has used empty bully threats one time too many. Everybody knows, even if he manages getting a lawyer to file suit, he will drop it before required to provide discovery.

And Michael Cohen just laughs and laughs and...

If you want to drive him nuts, hit him in the ( imaginary) pocketbook. He’s all fluff, from his hair down, and with the slightest breeze he rolls away. His fake fortune will be completely exposed when he finally has to write a check for a major fine.
