Branding!

Trump Tower Moscow?

The WaPo is only asking the questions, folks:

“Some of Trump’s businesses are now in crisis, facing sharp drops in revenue and an exodus of clients, lenders, lawyers and business partners. Now, sharks are circling.”

“The Washington Post spoke with four investors who said they are exploring efforts to buy Trump’s properties or the loans he has taken out on them. They believe Trump has fatally wounded his brand — a view shared by some independent analysts — and they are hoping he will cut his losses by selling them luxe properties for cheap.”

Well, the brand wasn’t exactly solid gold before, but now it is worthless to its target demographic of rich people (in NYC, for sure) who might aspire to plunk down a million+ ameros for a poorly built but gaudy trash palace in the sky.

Said one investor: “The first thing you do is you take the Trump name off them — which, by the way, could be a multiple-week effort, because it’s on everything. Once it’s gone, it’s a competitive asset.”

I dunno if that stink can ever be removed.

    “I dunno if that stink can ever be removed.” You may be right about the stink. It’s quite offensive, but the predators see profit. I tend to see the Trump empire in final stage Jenga mode, with the sharks (possible investors) smelling blood. Just a question of which critical piece is removed before the whole thing comes crashing down. Popcorn may be a good investment…

    My great grandchildren will marvel that we ever named hotels after Trump and schools after Lee.

    Here’s hoping that Deutsche bank or some other entity comes along and starts the removal of fat nixon’s name off of the third tallest structure in downtown Chicago.

      One time when I was in Chicago on bidness, I opened the blinds to my room, and lo! The TRUMP sign was in my direct view on the other side of the river. I closed the shades for the remainder of the trip.

      royally pissed me off.

    All it had to do was keep its head down, its mouth shut.

    Outlaws throughout time are laughing uproariously.

    Trump is notorious for building death traps with no sprinkler systems. The Trump casino in Atlantic City that was recently imploded had glass falling from the windows. Nobody is going to pay full price for these trash palaces.

    Maybe Mitt will scoop them up for pennies on the dollar.

      That former guy’s Manhattan tower was built before NYC required sprinkler systems. When that requirement was passed, that former guy avoided a retrofit by saying sprinklers were too expensive. Then a resident died in a fire there in 2017. That former guy handled his grief well.

    Y’know it would be cool to see what would happen if someone discovered a Biden hotel or restaurant somewhere within 90 miles of the Whitehouse.

    Especially if the Trump sign is still on the Post Office.

    Trump Stank – a heady combination of old man’s pants and brasso. Good luck getting the taint 😉 of trump stank out.

  10. The stank is just the tip of the fatberg. Fumigating thirty-six stories for bedbugs isn’t going to be cheap.

      How much is the real estate beneath the building worth? Deduct the cost of removing the trash to get the actual target cost the sharks are looking for.
