Trump Bus Lines Run Over A-Rod

Seriously, can't anybody give this guy a break? The latest bus-throwing incident comes from legendary baseball afficianado and great thinker Donald Trump:
Trump was in Arkansas on Thursday to speak at the Economics Arkansas luncheon. According to, Trump talked about Rodriguez, three-time AL MVP who has been criticized for his perceived inability to come through in important situations.

“He always plays bad under pressure,” Trump was quoted as saying. “Derek Jeter, he’s the greatest. People love Derek Jeter. Are those cameras on? This is going to get broadcast back home. Oh, now he’ll leave my building.”

A company controlled by a corporation controlled by Rodriguez bought an apartment at Trump Park Avenue in Manhattan for $7.4 million in July 2005.

Jeter bought an apartment in Trump World Tower, another Manhattan building, in 2001.

This really has to be a joke. When has Trump ever faced real pressure? The guy was born into money, and used that to invest it into even more money.

Didn't Trump face bankruptcy in the early 90s? I'd say that's some real pressure.

The question is when has AROD faced real pressure? Getting paid around 25M a year to play a game isn't my idea of "real" pressure.
