From Donald Trump to the Son of God

Friday, March 07, 2014

Mark Burnett pretty much invented reality TV as we know it: Survivor, The Apprentice, The Voice. But his latest hit was the 10-hour miniseries The Bible — out of which he's carved a feature film on the life of Jesus.

The New York Times publishes its profile of David Weprin

Friday, September 09, 2011

Colby Hamilton / WNYC

The Times published its follow-up candidate profile of David Weprin in the race for congress out in Queens today. (I'm guessing Chris Hoeppner's not getting his piece in before Tuesday.)

As we did with Turner's piece yesterday, here's the money section that sort of speaks to the big issue for the Weprin campaign right now:

Among his worst setbacks, he said, was finishing last in the 2009 Democratic primary for comptroller, which he attributed to a lack of support from the Democratic Party machine.

But political operatives who worked with him in that race said he had proved to be a sometimes temperamental candidate.

They said he would miss scheduled meetings with black and Latino groups, only to be discovered spending time with Orthodox Jewish constituents. While he was very skilled at raising money, they said he was also absent-minded.

The Weprin campaign's missteps might be more of trait following the candidate from race to race than any sort of bad luck. And they seem to be taking their toll: Siena came out with their poll this morning showing Turner capturing the majority of the support of those polled, leading the former frontrunner Weprin by 6 points.

The big question will be how the Weprin camp responds this weekend. Mobilizing support from endorsers in labor and elected office, hitting the pavement in the district, using the poll for a last-minute fundraising push--all of these things would indicate a campaign that was still going for the gold.

If today's event today was any indication, things don't look good for Weprin. After the poll was released showing Weprin sliding into second place, the campaign held a "protest" against Donald Trump's endorsement of Bob Turner. In Midtown. Far, far away from the district that could be slipping through his fingers.

Donald Trump robocalls for Turner campaign

Thursday, September 08, 2011

The Donald has spoken and he's for Republican Bob Turner in the race to fill the vacant 9th Congressional District seat, according to a robocall the Turner campaign released today. Take a listen to the actual call below the transcript:

This is Donald Trump, and I'm not calling to fire you, as we say on The Apprentice. I'm calling to fire you up!

Because there's an important election in Queens and Brooklyn on Tuesday, and we need to elect businessman Bob Turner to Congress.

If you don't like what's going on in Washington, if you don't like what's happening with Israel, because Israel is being treated very badly and very unfairly by the Obama administration, vote for Bob Turner.

Trust me, they'll notice. Electing Bob Turner on Tuesday will be a shot heard 'round the country.

Everybody is talking about this election, and everybody is looking to see what's going to happen.

President Obama and Congress will know that you had a lot to do with it.

It's enough with the game-playing. It's enough with all of the nonsense.

Protect Israel. Join me, Donald Trump, in supporting Bob Turner for Congress on Tuesday, September 13th.

Thank you.

Mixed Feelings about Trump's End

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

There has been a swirl of reaction to Donald Trump's announcement that he won't run for president after all. Many aren't surprised. After all, he never really established a formal exploratory committee. He did say he was serious, though. "I have never been so serious as I am now," he told ABC's Good Morning America from a seat on his private plane back in March.

Are 'Birthers' Bad for the Republican Party?

Friday, April 22, 2011

Forty-five percent of Republicans still believe Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States, even though there's no question to the veracity of his citizenship. Thanks in particular to potential GOP 2012 presidential candidate Donald Trump, the "birther" issue has resurfaced. As the Republican party gears up for the 2012 presidential election — and as a number of states legislatures consider their own "birther" bills — how will this issue play for potential Republican candidates?

Donald Trump will not be our next President - so the longer he dominates the news cycles, the more Democrats should be thrilled. It heightens the circus-like quality of their opponents' primary, hints at the desperation felt by many Republicans, and showcases a few of the wedge issues that split the conservative movement.

Trump’s Business Troubles and Triumphs: Will They Matter?

Thursday, April 21, 2011

WNYC

Like in business, politics can be a shell game, where bluster and feigned disgust commingle with truth. In the private sector, precisely worded contracts and tinkered corporate structures are deployed to contain liability and responsibility. In presidential politics, Trump may not be able to insulate himself in the same way from proximity to trouble, particularly when problem projects share his name.
