TRUMP’S “DEAN SCREAM”: The Donald Loses His Cool On CNBC (This is the end of his candidacy)
Posted on Friday, May 13, 2011 11:59:54 AM by SeekAndFind
Donald Trump was just on CNBC responding to allegations over his property dealings made by the New York Times. He blasted the paper for its report, and its reporter for refusing to appear on TV to defend his claims.
The article reports that more than 300 people are suing Trump after he removed his name from properties they purchased. Those involved in the lawsuit allege there was no disclaimer that Trump was not the developer of the properties, but rather just “rented his name” to the actual developers.
Trump ended up going on a multi-minute rant in which he insulted CNBC anchor Simon Hobbs and slammed the New York Times.
Watch the video here. It may be remembered as Trump’s “Dean Scream,” the on-air event that ended Howard Dean‘s presidential campaign in 2004.
0:10 Trump says Mr. Barber (the New York Times reporter) “didn’t have the guts to go on” CNBC.
0:55 Mark Haines, CNBC, points out where the article says “my latest development” is mentioned in promotional materials. Trump rebuffs, saying the document people signed points out that he licensed his name, not that he developed the properties.
3:10 Trump says, “Hello Simon, whoever you are Simon. Simon, the market collapsed, you may not have heard about that. So thousands of buildings all over the United States had difficulties, so you probably heard about that somewhere along the line. That’s what happened Simon.”
4:30 Trump says he did investors “a favor.”
