The Donald Does Good

| Filed under: Donald TrumpEd McMahon

Surprise!

Donald Trump has followed through on his early, big-mouth claims of wanting to help out the money-troubled Ed McMahon.

On Thursday, the Donald announced that he'd 'save' Ed's Beverly Hills mansion from foreclosure by buying it for an undisclosed amount and leasing it to McMahon.

The McMahon home was listed at $4.6 million last weekend — down from a peak price of $7 million.

Donald told the Los Angeles Times he doesn't know McMahon personally but acted out of compassion because helping out "would be an honor." He also went on to say, "When I was at the Wharton School of Business I'd watch him every night. How could this happen?"

The former Carson sidekick's spokesman said that paperwork on the sale had not been completed but that McMahon was "very optimistic" the deal would go through.

It's good to see that the Donald's latest publicity stunt is going to help someone other than himself!

    Gross! - it makes me sick the way rich people never suffer consequences from anything. Well looks like Donald trump will be claiming a "loss" on this buisness venture next tax season- McMahons got 1 foot in the grave and not long to make more $$- So Lame

    Don't get it twisted Perz, he is not buying the house for Ed, he is leasing it out to him after buying it…that is benefiting Donald NOT Ed. He still lost his house. This is just another ploy the Donald is doing to make himself look good!

    Way to make humanitarian points. not your best call, perez.

    i love the Donald
    i love the Donald
    i love the Donald…what a kind fucking man he is!!!



  10. 10

    This is old news. Heard about it yesterday.



  11. 11

    Maybe Trump can take Ed's wife off his hands so he can regroup. Then she can blow through the Donald's $$$$.



  12. 12

    i'd love a hand out also please !! why help someone who's had the opportunity to be financially successful and then just pissed on it? why don't you help people who really need it? so what if he has to go live in a smaller house. it's called downsizing when you get laid off !! pay your bills moron and don't have drivers and mansions you fucking retarded idiot



  13. 13

    1/2 way there only!
    Give ED the house Donald!!!



  14. 14

    Dont know if I would consider this a publicity stunt. I think its awesome that Trump is helping out but if Ed is broke… how can he afford to lease?!?!



  15. 15

    Re: WakeUpPeople – so i guess when the fucking drunk Ed doesnt have to move all is shit into storage and fing a fuckin rental thats not helping him, u douche nozzle

    Finally he did something half way good, well I say half way cause if it where something totally good he would have gotten the mortgage up to date and let Ed have the house.



  17. 17

    obviously donald is getting a tax break from this!



  18. 18

    very nice of the don. he gets brownie pts from me



  19. 19

    Why bail out Ed McMahon who admittedly never paid attention to his finances or wrote a check most of his life? Anyone who blows millions like he has doesn't deserve help. If Trump really wanted to do a good turn, he should have done it for someone deserving, but he just follows the publicity.



  20. 20

    Trump knows a good DEAL when he sees one…
    and he'll only do a good DEED if it's a good DEAL



  21. 21

    What a nice thing to do! I always thought Donald has this mean, nasty image to him,but perhaps not; maybe he just want to *appear* brash and heartless as a businessman, but in real life maybe he does have a hidden "soft side" afterall? This was a kind gesture,and it shows a more kinder, human side to him.Maybe he's really NOT so bad,afterall? :)



  22. 22

    WOW, HE ACTUALLY HAS A SOUL! I'M IMPRESSED….THAT WAS VERY NICE OF HIM!

    Boy, it sure is a relief to know that Donald Trump is using his wealth to save — the wealthy.

    Yup, kids in Haiti eat dirt cookies to survive and this guy shits on a gold toilet and his charity of choice is Ed McMahon's mansion.



  24. 24

    That is a nice thing that Trump did, but does he have to lease it to him? If Trump is so rich he should gift the home to McMahon.



  25. 25

    That's awesome!!



  26. 26

    I would be more leary of donald than I would the bank trying to foreclose on me. I promise you this man has something up his sleeve. He is NOT a nice man. Watch out, Ed, you may have just bought himself much more trouble!



  27. 27

    I feel sorry for Ed, now he's gonna be Donald's slave in his last years.



  28. 28

    Old Ed should have down sized years ago.



  29. 29

    Good for Donald. Good for Ed. This is nice news to read Perez, thanks ;-)

    xoxo, Isa

    This definitely helps Ed out, but it also helps Donald out - what a great deal, being known as the guy who did something great for an entertainment icon having hard times.



  31. 31

    It took someone across the country to step up and help Ed McMahon? What about all the big shots in Hollywood who used to be regulars on the Tonight Show? I say kudos for Donald Trump being the only one who remembered how great the Tonight show was, how entertained Ed and Johnny Carson kept us five nights a week and I say good for him.



  32. 32

    Perez,

    Lay off the donuts fat fuck! TMZ posted this story yesterday



  33. 33

    Re: krazihottkelli/bitchygrl – Wow. Your name really does suit you. Grammar school much?

    Good for Trump. He's doing a good deed. We'll all wait with baited breath to see whether he follows up that act with another kind gesture! Hope he continues to do so! And lucky for McMahon that he has good fans. lol :)



  34. 34

    Donald will steal it from the bank. He will lease it to Ed and when Ed passes, Donald will sell the mansion and make a fortune. This is not out of the goodness of his heart. It is a publicity stunt and future profit deal for Donald. This is an extremely LOW risk real estate investment due to the deal he gets from the bank and Ed's age.THERE IS NO GOOD DEED GOING DOWN HERE.



  35. 35

    THE AMERICAN CULTURE IS REALLY, REALLY, REALLY SCREWED UP. HOLLYWOOD CHARITY??? SPENDING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO BAIL OUT A HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITY, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO FOOD TO EAT….OOPS WAIT A MINUTE….SO THEY CAN CONTINUE TO LIVE IN A HOME WORTH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS; WHICH THEY CANNOT EVEN AFFORD IT. IT WOULD BE TOO LAUGH; IF IT WASN'T SO PATHETIC.
    :l
    I'M SURE THAT DONALD TRUMP GIVES MONEY TO CHARITIES, AND I'M SURE HE BRAGS ABOUT IT; BUT IMAGINE IF HE PUT ALL OF THOSE MILLIONS INTO PROGRAMS, THE AMOUNT OF DESPERATE PEOPLE WHO COULD BE TOUCHED BY IT, AND ED McMAHON COULD LIVE IN MORE MODEST ACCOMODATIONS LIKE THE REST OF THE PEOPLE, WHO ONLY TAKE WHAT THEY CAN AFFORD.
    :l



  36. 36

    YEAH, HE IS LEASING IT BACK TO McMAHON; SO HE IS REALLY NOT SPENDING ANY MONEY, BECAUSE HE OWNS THE PROPERTY; BUY MY POINT IS, HE COULD STILL OWN THE PROPERTY IF HE BOUGHT IT AND LEASED IT TO A HOMELESS SHELTER.
    :l



  37. 37

    See, he's not all bad, just mostly.



  38. 38

    Why not do this privately? Why did Trump need to announce this?

    Because he is a whore and did this for the publicity, thats why. I can't stand when celebrities make there so called good deeds known publicly. Shit, why not just call a press conference, drag Ed down there and hand him a over sized check. Maybe even make a commercial out of it. I think I just threw up a bit in my mouth.



  39. 39

    Why you take for granted that is a publicity stunt? In your eyes noone can have a good heart and good reasons to help other huh? You think you are better than him? Or maybe you think you are better than D Trump because you pay your mom to clean your plain white tiny appartment???
