I'm loving the way Trump's election is torturing Gruber. I have my popcorn ready for the next 4 years.

>They make Macs.

They used to... now they make iPhones and iPhone accessories (which includes Macs).

Macs are now toy computers. They're just fancy facebook machines.

Macs are not accessories to iPhones, you need to buy a dongle to connect both. Now if you have an Android ...

Fucking duh, once he resigns from the LLC that leases the building he will play no role.


Fucking reporters and Gruber are fucking stupid.

So the contract includes a clause that is to be construed against the tenant, and Trump is the owner of the building? The provision doesn't apply to him; he owns the place. Dynamite story, Gruber!

Hey dipshit, Trump does own the building. See:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Post_Office_Pavilion

Also, from the fucking article Gruber posted that you're commenting on:

"Donald Trump would, in effect, be both landlord and tenant"

did you even read the article you linked?

> On June 4, GSA reached a final agreement with The Trump Organization regarding redevelopment of the Old Post Office Building.[130] The Trump Organization negotiated a 60-year lease

60 year lease. 60 YEAR LEASE. that seems like a lease to me.

and as for the "Donald Trump would, in effect, be both landlord and tenant," the "in effect" part is crucial. it's "in effect" because trump, as the president, would appoint the head of the GSA, who would set the terms of the lease.
