Trump’s ShamWow Infomercial ‘Press Conference’ Full of Lies and Deception

Note: Above is a photoshopped image for comedic purposes. It is not actually Donald Trump doing a ShamWow commercial and is not Donald Trump at a press conference.

Networks gave Donald Trump more millions in free campaign ads on Tuesday night, playing his nearly one-hour long product pitch for his various failed products that the thin-skinned bloviating billionaire and reality TV star felt the need to try to resurrect in the minds of his supporters.

Sounding like a 60-minute discombobulated “ShamWow” infomercial, Trump attempted to defend his many failed ventures, which were highlighted in a recent speech by 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, claiming that they all still exist and either are still thriving or, in the case of Trump Airlines, he sold them for a profit.

For example, Trump claimed that Trump Steaks still exist. Well, just try to order one. Go on and type in “Trump Steaks,” and you’ll see links to Omaha Steaks, etc., but nothing of Trump Steaks.

But wait! Trump actually showed the “Trump Steaks” at his “press conference,” so they must exist, right? Trump, who is already under fire for being a con man, wouldn’t be lying to our faces, would he?

Mitt Romney, an establishment icon whose motives for bashing Trump may not be pure (some have understandably speculated that he’s setting himself up to be the GOP nominee at a brokered Republican convention), mentioned Trump companies’ numerous bankruptcies that have “crushed small businesses and the men and women who work for them.”

Nevertheless, objectively, truth is truth, and good questions are good questions, even when spoken by a RINO who may have ulterior motives.

“He inherited his business, he didn’t create it,” Romney contended. “And whatever happened to Trump Airlines? How about Trump University? And then there’s Trump Magazine and Trump Vodka and Trump Steaks and Trump Mortgage. A business genius he is not,” Romney claimed.

You will notice that in the laundry list of alleged Trump failures Mitt Romney rattled off, “Trump Water” is not one mentioned. However, that didn’t stop Trump from defending his “water company,” even though apparently, upon further review, “Trump Water,” is nothing more than a label slapped on another company’s product.

Trump, the only “Christian” in world history to have never asked God for forgiveness of sins, also defended another Trump brand that Romney did not mention, Trump Winery, “which is not owned, managed or affiliated with Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization or any of their affiliates,” according to the Trump Winery website’s legal section.

Trump didn’t mention Trump Vodka, which Romney did mention as a list of Trump failures. Trump Vodka was discontinued in 2011, and as the Wall Street Journal reported, one can still buy the empty bottles on eBay.

Perhaps Trump, who claims that he could shoot somebody in the middle of Fifth Avenue in Time Square and still not lose supporters (Unfortunately, this is probably true), thinks that his supporters — and the media — are too stupid or sycophantic to know the difference between vodka, wine or kool-aid for that matter.

Trump told the outlandish lie that Trump Magazine, which died in 2009, still exists, by holding up a different publication — unrelated to the failed Trump Magazine — that is available to guests at his Mar-a-Lago Club.

It turns out that the magazine Trump held up last night at his phony press conference was “The Jewel of Palm Beach,” which is no more than a fancy brochure that is published about once a year. It wasn’t and isn’t Trump Magazine, nor was it its replacement.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) revealed that Trump was lying when he claimed that the organization faxed the Trump campaign during the GOP debate last Thursday to correct the record of Trump University, which is currently being sued in a 5,000 member class-action lawsuit as a scam operation.

BBB said in their statement on Tuesday that Trump University had a D- rating in 2010, while it was still in business, but that the rating “improved” after the organization folded and, therefore, no new complaints came in, and as old complaints fell off the chart.

But do you think Trump supporters will care? Nope. They LOVE IT when Trump lies to them, and bamboozles them, even the so-called evangelical voters.
