Horndog Donald Trump Gets Edited in His Way To Wealth Infomercial

In an earlier post I wrote about the infomercial for the Donald Trump Way to Wealth Seminar. I included a video clip in which Trump hits on his female host, makes a strange comment about “beautiful or good looking” people attending his seminar, and then gets bleeped.

I caught this same infomercial again over the weekend and I noticed that part of this scene had been edited. Donald Trump still tries to flirt with hostess Anne Marie Howard and he still gets bleeped, but the line “In some cases they’re beautiful or good looking” has been taken out.

Here is the original version (the line in question takes place at 0:20):

And here is the same scene in the current version of the infomercial:

Why would they remove that line? Perhaps upon seeing a crowd of nothing but the frumpy and middle-aged, many attendees of the Trump Way to Wealth Seminar angrily complained about the paucity of either beautiful or good looking people in attendance. The producers may then have been forced to cut the line from the infomercial simply to avoid charges of false advertising.

  • I would guess it’s due to the psychology of the people that would fall for this tripe. Many of them might be intimidated by having to hang out with beautiful people in order to “network”. Or it could simply be a time issue. But I bet they test the hell out of different versions and for whatever reason, trump and his insanely pretentious hair (that special area of his male body) just turned people off with that part of his spiel.

  • Fast forward to 2017 and this specimen is now President of the United States of America. There is something deeply flawed in the method used to select a president.
