First, let’s recall the mass fellating that local Republicans gave Donald Trump when he pretended to be interested in running for governor, and then again when he pretended to be in interested in buying the Bills. 

Shorthand: back when Donald Trump pretended to give two shits about our fair backwater. 

The Pegulas, on the other hand, have taken a billion and a half of the money they made fracking Pennsylvania and bought the Sabres, and then the Bills. In just a couple of months, the Bills went from likely departure to an indefinite Buffalo domicile. 

Trump sharted this on his Twitter machine Friday: 

Quite possibly the best response came from one of the Pegula daughters, Jessie. I’m sure being a billionaire is awesome in many ways, but here’s the difference between a sociopathic narcissist and a real human being: 

Indeed, it isn’t. Meanwhile, Trump should probably concentrate on his gaming business, which is facing its fourth (maybe fifth?) bankruptcy. Stop idolizing this guy. He’s not emblematic of how rich people should act.  Quite the opposite.

    Obviously Trump is a horrible person who should not be idolized but it’d be nice if Buffalo took it’s foot off the gas on the Pegula worship as well.

    Buying a couple of sports franchises shouldn’t get to excuse the fact the man made his billions in one of the shadiest industries on the planet. Watching the Bills lose football games isn’t going to cure all the cancers fracking puts into Pennslyvania drinking water.

    Maybe, just maybe, we shouldn’t ANYONE based on their bank account.

    What’s amazing is that the News bothers to print everything DT tweets as though he was some sort of Delphic oracle.

        That’s like saying chicken aren’t fowl. Of course if you Twitter you are twits

    Your purposeful disconnect from anything having to do with sports may have done you a disservice here. Nobody in WNY – Republican or Democrat – did anything to The Donald but laugh at him over his fake bid for the Bills.
