In a newly released civil trial deposition, Donald Trump reportedly bragged about how much money he could sell his remaining properties for if he wanted to. It sure sounds like his babysitters have prepped him for the eventuality of his holdings getting liquidated in the Letitia James civil trial.
This way, when multiple Trump properties are seized and/or sold off as a result of the trial, Trump’s babysitters can lead him to believe that he sold them off for a profit. They’re prepping him for it already. And he’s so far gone, he’ll just accept that story as being real.
As always, the key part of the story is just how far gone Trump is cognitively. Based on how he now comes off in his public appearances, he seems to be at a point where his babysitters could probably convince him of anything. That now apparently includes convincing him that his properties aren’t being forcibly sold off as part of liquidation, but are instead being sold off because he’s a financial genius. Anything to soften the blow on his way down.
