‘How will he pay?’ and other reactions to that $355 million verdict against Trump

‘How will he pay?’ and other reactions to that $355 million verdict against Trump

On Friday, Judge Arthur Engoron put an exclamation point at the end of Donald Trump’s New York civil fraud case, ordering him to pay $355 million, plus interest payments that could bump the bill up to $450 mill or more.

So the obvious question now is, “How the fuck is he going to pay that?” His devotees’ GoFundMes—that’s not a joke; there are at least two—have so far barely raised enough to cover ketchup stain removal. And he’d need to come up with all that cash before he can appeal the verdict, it’s unclear whether he has it, or whom he might convince to give it to him. After all, if you have $355 million and loan it to Donald Trump, you need to have your head examined, because Dr. Ben Carson clearly left a sponge in there.

In the final weeks of his 2020 presidential campaign, Trump claimed a Joe Biden victory would unleash an economic disaster of epic proportions” and cause a severe depression. Hardly anyone took him seriously at the time, but for once his prediction was spot-on. What our fave unseemly solipsist neglected to mention, of course, was that the crash would be narrowly focused, affecting only Trump’s businesses and the MAGA fools who send him money.
