Former Forbes Reporter Says Donald Trump Once Posed As A Trump Organization Official & Lied About His Own Wealth!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpSad SadBusiness Blitz

no title

Donald Trump was always desperate for prestige and had no problem lying to get it. This was confirmed by a former Forbes reporter who claimed that Trump actually posted as a Trump Organization executive in a phone interview and lied about his fortune to crack the Forbes 400 list.

In a Washington Post story, Jonathan Greenberg alleged that Trump called him in the '80s pretending to be "John Barron," a purported executive with The Trump Organization. (OMG, is that where Barron Trump got his name from!?)

Greenberg said that despite Trump's actual net worth as a real estate developer being less than $5 million in 1982, the magazine had listed it as $100 million for its first ever Forbes 400 list.

Two years later, Greenberg received a phone call from "Barron" after Forbes listed Trump's holdings at $200 million in its previous edition. The reporter said that Trump, as Barron, "lied" in saying Trump owned all of his father Fred Trump's assets, which he did not until his father died in 1999.

Oh Lordy, we hope there are tapes… oh wait — there are!

In the audio published by The Post, "Barron" can be heard telling Greenberg:

Forbes Writer Calls Black Panther 'Hollywood's Worst Nightmare' — And Gets Into It With Black Twitter!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry PotterTwitterStar WarsGIFsViral: News

no title

We think Scott Mendelson probably meant well. But man oh man did he step in it on Tuesday!

The film writer for Forbes wrote an article with the headline "'Black Panther' Has Become Hollywood's Worst Nightmare: An Event Movie That Hurts Or Kills Other Event Movies…." and folks had some thoughts.

The basic premise was that Black Panther is so successful, it's ruining all the other movies coming out after it that should be big hits. He mentions Red Sparrow, A Wrinkle In Time, and Tomb Raider by name. You know, that big event film, Red Sparrow.

The whole thing pretty much makes no sense — no one is being held hostage and told to see BP for the third time. If anything, it's keeping people going to the movies during a season that otherwise would be a disastrous Hollywood drought!

Black Twitter couldn't help but wonder what it was about this particular blockbuster that would inspire such a hot take…

Vin Diesel Is Forbes' Top Grossing Actor Of 2017! See The Full List!

no title

It's been a bang up year for Vin Diesel!

Forbes just named the action star the top grossing actor of 2017, listing his salary as $1.6 billion.

Diesel's high-octane earnings were largely due to being the face of the Fast and the Furious franchise — the latest entry of which, Fate of the Furious, topped $1.2 billion at the international box office.

The film also towed Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to the no. 2 spot on the list, with a salary of $1.5 billion. Now we know why the franchise leads weren't in any hurry to crank out the next Fast film like their broke costar Tyrese Gibson!

Last year's top earner Scarlett Johansson didn't place at all, but quite a few kick ass ladies — including Gal Gadot and Emma Watson — earned just a few mil shy of 2017's top earners.

See the full list, which is calculated by adding up 2017 global ticket sales of major films as of Dec. 26, 2017 (animated movies not included), below:

Donald Trump Has Lost $600 MILLION Since Running For President!

no title

From what we've heard, nothing hurts Donald Trump the way losing money does.

His bankruptcy was the one thing he told Seth MacFarlane not to mention in his Comedy Central Roast, his entire feud with Rosie O'Donnell began because she once mentioned it on The View, and he broke tradition and refused to reveal his tax returns to the American people.

So we're guessing he's not going to be too happy with Forbes. The mag, which ranks personal fortunes annually, has assessed President Trump's net worth to have fallen from #156 in 2016 to #248 today.

After a thorough investigation, they estimate he has gone from $3.7 billion to $3.1 billion. So where did that $600 mil go??

Only $66 mil was spent on his campaign, presumably buying off-the-book things like fake crowds at his announcement speech. $25 mil was lost settling that Trump University lawsuit — you know, because it was a huge scam.

But the bulk of the loss was an estimated $400 million in real estate dips as the Goon-in-Chief single-handedly tarnishes his own brand every single day. Apparently far fewer people want to stay at Trump hotels and resorts or play at Trump golf courses both in the U.S. and abroad in Scotland and Ireland knowing the name Trump is synonymous with racism, misogyny, incompetence, and unethical behavior.

Funny how that works.

Amy Schumer Is Once Again The Only Female On Forbes' List Of The World's Highest Paid Comedians

amy schumer only female on forbes highest paid comedians list

There's no denying that the comedy world is a male-dominated industry.

Thankfully, Amy Schumer's success has shaken up this reality a bit as she's (once again) the only female comedienne listed on Forbes' annual ranking of the highest earning comedians worldwide.

In fact, it was only last year that Miz Schumer made history by becoming the first woman ever to make the list. In case you forgot, the Trainwreck actress came in fourth with an estimated annual income of $17 million.

On Thursday, Forbes dropped their list once more — only this time the Inside Amy Schumer creator dropped down a ranking. Although, don't feel too badly for the 36-year-old as her annual income increased by $20 million. The funny lady was beat out by icons like Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Louis C.K.

Fingers crossed she jumps up to the number one spot in 2018!

Donald Trump Plummets Over 200 Spots On Forbes' Billionaires List!

no title

It's all going downhill for Donald Trump.

The president's fortune has dropped by approximately $1 billion since last year (roughly the price of one election), which caused him to sink DEEP in Forbes' latest ranking of the world's billionaires!

Last year, the real estate mogul landed at the No. 324 spot, but now comes in as the world's 544th richest person.

While Trump's actual net worth is unknown due to his notorious refusal to reveal his tax returns, but has claimed it's "in excess" of $10 billion.

The decline in the Big Cheeto's net worth is due, according to Forbes, to a drop in the value of office space in Midtown Manhattan — and we're sure letting his sons Harry and Lloyd Donald Jr. and Eric run the "show" at Trump Tower isn't helping.

The rest of the list is pretty typical: Bill Gates once again tops the financial titans with a fortune of
