During the last GOP Presidential debate, Donald Trump, when asked what his biggest weakness was, answered, “I trust people too much.”
I’m too trusting and when they let me down, if they let me down, I never forgive.
Well if that’s the case, then radio host Bobby Estell a.k.a. Bobby Bones, better watch his back. Estell seized the opportunity to trademark Trump’s campaign slogan, ‘Make America Great Again,’ then turned around and offered to sell it back to Trump for a face-to-face meet and a $100,000 donation to charity.
We’re not sure on the meet-and-greet, but Trump ponied up an undisclosed amount and now owns his own inane campaign slogan. Bones tweeted
can’t say how much the check was for. but thanks Donald Trump. This check goes to St Jude. have your slogan back
Trump spokewoman Hope Hicks stated,
We simply reimbursed him the money he had paid to try and register the trademark and allowed him to donate it to St. Jude’s Hospital for which Mr. Trump’s son Eric has helped raise millions of dollars toward cancer research.
Yeah, that’s how it looks on paper. But the fact is ‘The Donald’ was beaten at his own game, and made to look the fool (apparently something that is not hard to do).
Well done, Bobby Bones!
