I doubt this happened. If it did, I'm sure Trump would have a statue of it in the lobby of one of his hotels. And we'd have heard about it a couple thousand times.


It happened.
It doesn't matter if you think it didn't.

But that is the way of people who hate Trump.


Someone says it happened. That isn't quite the same thing.


Well, that is kind of the way the world works, isn't it?

We can't all be there to see everything, so we rely on people who were there.


It's kind of funny how the link in the OP just goes to a 404'd page, and no one seems to notice.

this is a total lie. everyone knew trump was a gigantic douchebag even back then. anyone from new york knows about his shady real estate/construction/mafia dealings, support against the central park 5, racist housing policies at his slums, sleazy interviews on howard stern etc etc.

i find it hilarious that the party of family values picked this several times divorced "playboy" as the leader of their party but hey nowadays the right would elect the devil incarnate if it meant holding on to power. they have signed their deal with the orange tinged kitty grabber and given him their blind allegiance. you are doing exactly what you accused obamas followers of doing for the last 8 years.



Obama is still a douchebag.

Only thing he's grabbed is our money and rights.

8 yrs as POTUS, not bad for a substitute teacher and terrorist groupie.

Somebody even posted a newspaper, and there are multiple sites to confirm what people saw. Or didn't see.

I don't believe for a second that you would have seen Donald Trump in the Vietnam jungle carrying around a gun risking his life. He had way too much money to be reduced to a role of the common citizen fighting a bogus war.

Who reads links? As long as it confirms ones biases the title is all that counts.


I didn't click the link either so I don't have much room to talk but I honestly don't care because Trump has shown himself to be a scumbag on numerous occasions over the decades.

Yeah, he'd be on a swift boat collecting purple hearts or in a tiger cage after blowing up his carrier and getting shot down with chinese lanterns.

lol..

You guys...

I can't explain how beautiful your words are enlightened1.. mmmmmm.. the accidental hypocrisy
unmasking.. the honest low information gathering person saying others are dumb and one sentence later confirming herd status platinum.

Enlightened...

hahaha.



The Next Time any of you see a link or title... Shut up and read.. Read it all and hopefully find many sources.. This is all BEFORE you decide how you feel about a title.

Learning doesnt stop in school.

Keep your head in the game. Many have money on you won't last past the next commercial, and they will get return on that investment.

Reading has a good effect on attention span, not to mention you get to see data on your own closer to the source without somone else bottle feeding you.

In no way on any of those site is there proof that this actually happened. If it did happen then good job Trump for a selfless act. But to be honest since this story is only on hard right leaning websites and nowhere else should indicate something to you.

It indicates that most news outlets don't like to report positive things about Trump or that only a few websites decided this old story was important enough to be rehashed, it does not indicate this never happened because there's a plethora of evidence suggesting it did happen. Also just because a news source leans to the right doesn't mean everything they report is false. Thinking like that is a perfect example of how political bias can cause one to deny truths simply because it doesn't jive with their belief system. If you think you're getting reliable truth from leftist MSM sources you are delusional.

One incident 27 years ago hardly makes up for the countless other times he's proven to be a sleazeball. You can't do numerous shady things over the years then somehow be absolved because of one thing that happened before the shady stuff took place. That's like a judge pardoning a thief because he gave a homeless person $10 decades ago.

I seem to recall the event, I think it is true, at least as reported. However the motives at the time along with the risk at the time make an interesting case for supposition, or conspiracy thinking.

A young Trump on his way to a concert ,,,in his limo,,,,,. Was he driving, likely not. Was the chauffeur also a body guard?
Might we also consider that as a rich man at the time he had other body guards at close call? Wern't there stories at the time about his law suits as a land lord? At least the driver and likely one more could easily have been enough to spur him to demonstrate and action of mercy? He says the bad guy just ran away. Possibly because the fame of Trump scared him and possibly because of the two big brutes standing behind him.

There is every possibility that at that time Trump needed to bolster a sagging public image and pulled this as a stunt to repair that image. Easily a scenario that fits with how many of us see the man now

a reply to: ChaoticOrder Well I guess its a good thing I don’t resort to the MSM for my information. Using the information available to me is what makes me money. Thank you for assuming that I only read crap like CNN or FOX for my news. Looking for the original source then looking at those involved with making that story is doing real investigating into a story. And in this story I did just that. Not a single piece of a verified source came up. Just those saying reported. In no way does that mean fact.

What is a "verified source"? What sources do you consider to be completely trustworthy? I'd say a scan from an old newspaper is quite strong proof the story was real... there is a difference between being careful and being dismissive.

a reply to: ChaoticOrder Oh my, so if I were to present a old newspaper article about some story being presented as fact you would believe it? Even if that was the only article about said story? I only ask ask is because that is what seems to be what you are suggesting.

a reply to: Allaroundyou And in my mind a verified source is what I deem verified. In that logic you and I are obviously going to have differing views on a verified source.

If you're asking whether I believe the story as it was reported, well based on witness reports I'd say Trump did get out of the limo and say something to the guy, but I don't really find that impressive at all, if he ran over and scared the guy away it might be a bit more impressive. If you're asking whether I always automatically believe a picture of an old newspaper is real, obviously it takes more than a simple picture. However the scan posted on the first page looks very real to me, you can see the wear on the paper and the deterioration it has undergone, some of the edges are folded, the text looks very natural and not like it has been overlaid onto the paper at all, and the reporting style feels authentic for the times. If it's fake, it would have taken quite some effort to make it look so real and quite frankly I don't think anyone would bother doing that for a story like this. Just apply some simple logic and it's obvious this was a real story, but if you want to believe it's fake for whatever dumb reason you have then be my guest.
