Skip to comments.TRUMP'S "DEAN SCREAM": The Donald Loses His Cool On CNBC (This is the end of his candidacy)
Posted on 05/13/2011 8:59:54 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Donald Trump was just on CNBC responding to allegations over his property dealings made by the New York Times. He blasted the paper for its report, and its reporter for refusing to appear on TV to defend his claims.
The article reports that more than 300 people are suing Trump after he removed his name from properties they purchased. Those involved in the lawsuit allege there was no disclaimer that Trump was not the developer of the properties, but rather just "rented his name" to the actual developers.
Trump ended up going on a multi-minute rant in which he insulted CNBC anchor Simon Hobbs and slammed the New York Times.
Watch the video here. It may be remembered as Trump's "Dean Scream," the on-air event that ended Howard Dean's presidential campaign in 2004.
0:10 Trump says Mr. Barber (the New York Times reporter) "didn't have the guts to go on" CNBC.
0:55 Mark Haines, CNBC, points out where the article says "my latest development" is mentioned in promotional materials. Trump rebuffs, saying the document people signed points out that he licensed his name, not that he developed the properties.
3:10 Trump says, "Hello Simon, whoever you are Simon. Simon, the market collapsed, you may not have heard about that. So thousands of buildings all over the United States had difficulties, so you probably heard about that somewhere along the line. That's what happened Simon."
4:30 Trump says he did investors "a favor."

Based on this? Pls. explain.
LOL, so he called out the NY SLIMES and some bozo who is looking to recoup what he thought was a “sure thing”
Gee, where have I seen this before. Whats’ wrong with calling a spade a spade? If the Slimes lied ( I totally believe it) then why shouldn’t they be called on it.
It’s all about the whiners and the “deep pockets” of Trump and others like him.
Never considered him to be a serious candidate but I do hope he keeps trashing the democrats and pushing hard to support real conservatives. We still need someone who isn’t afraid to shove it back up the democrat’s arses.
FUBO & FAD
And it’s a bad thing to insult the NYTimes and their reporter ???
I listened to it...didn’t seem so bad to me, and I’m no fan of Trump. In fact, getting tough with the press, like Trump and Christie do is what it’s going to take to win the next election.
He was never a serious candidate and never would have been able to stand up to the fact he has heaped a lot of money on Democrats in past elections and made many derogatory statements about republicans (”GWB is the worst president ever”)
This in and of itself if nothing nut he never had a chance to be president nor do I think he was ever serious. He is one of the greatest self promoters ever.
What NONSENSE! I listened to the entire thing. Trump was rational and thoughtful throughout, and this was in the face of being questioned by imbeciles.
Whatever they think they have over the Donald is nothing compared to what he has over the liberals.
HOw can they compare this to the Dean Screamz? I don’t want Trump for president but the liberals are really doing their best to ‘destroy’ him. Big Surprise.
What do you mean ‘THE END of his candidacy”? LOL
He just explained (in an arrogant manner) that the investors on the Trump properties got “lucky” and he did them a “favor” as the market collapsed and that investors “supposedlY’ LOST a minimal amount on their investment. He’s a slimy weasel as a human being BUT he was quite right that if you invest, you better read the fine print and know exactly who you are dealing with and what you are getting yourself into.
Any assertion that this was some kind of Howard Dean moment for Trump is just plain stupid.
That said I would like to hear his story on how he leveraged an Atlantic City Casino property into bankruptcy.
I guess I would not vote for him in the primaries. But giving money to Democrats? Any good business man does that to protect his businesses.
Quite frankly, I would like to see a president that will NOT be pushed around. Unlike the Oblowme who is bowing to every 3rd world punk and giving them a hand mob to boot.
Trump is for Trump.
That said, he has balls unlike the current GOP leadership.
This was no Dean moment.
Clue to lib writer: Blasting the NY Times and MSNBC is a good thing. For a Repub.
Renting out your name. Presidential? Not hardly.
And anyone out there still thinking he is serious about a candidacy rather than just using this in a tawdry attempt to up his name recognition - so he can whore out his name at a higher price?
Congrats to knee-jerk SeekandFind freeper for his knee-jerk reaction that this thread is anti-Trump.
As an investor, he probably has no grasp on the intricacies of the properties investment market. Trump explained it explicitly that you should know what you are getting into when you invest in stock, properties etc. Nothing wrong with that. This is business management 101 old-school.
Some of us told you Freepers that these types of stories would happen based on our own real estate experience. I’m no Trump hater, but his skeletons are too many to be able to run a campaign.
Everyone who lives in the New York area knows that this guy is a blowhard who is only successful at marketing himself. He will never run for President, because he would have to reveal his financials - which he can’t ever let happen.
Once it’s revealed that he’s worth about 10% of what he claims, his name is worth nothing. Even this piece indicates that he is selling his *name* - just as he is on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Trump will be in jail in a cell next to Bernie Madoff before he ever occupies the Oval Office.

Frederick Christ Trump, born October 11, 1905 in Queens, NY, died June 1999 in Queens, NY
Mary Ann MacLeod, born May 10, 1912 in SCOTLAND, died August 7, 2000 in Queens, NY. Arrived in US October 5, 1935. Naturalized as a US Citizen March 10, 1942.
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Donald Trump is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN unlike Comrade Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama.
Trump must really be getting under their thin skin, I think that is obvious. For whatever reason, the best they could come up with to try and “get him” was this?
And then to run out and say this is Trump’s “Dean Moment” is pathetic. Trump is nothing like Dean, no matter how people view him, on his worst day he is never as low as Dean. This shows how petty they really are.
There are some things I like about Trump and some things I don’t like about him.
This gotcha interview wasn’t detrimental to him unless you didn’t like him in the first place.
People lose money every day in real estate. It’s an ugly little secret, but it’s true. He lent his name to the properties to help move them. Would it be better to see the whole property implode, remain empty in perpetuity, the developers and all investors losing their investments? Where are the bleeding heart liberals when it comes to their losses?
If buyers had finalized their purchases, everyone would have been happy. Granted the property values would have plummeted, but property values have plummeted all over the U.S. That’s the economy we’re in. In a few years the property values will rise again. Who knew?
You do what you can to make everyone happy, and even then sometimes things still go south. Who knew?
Is Trump presidential material. I don’t think so. With the moron we have in there now, he’d be ten times better. It’s all relative.
Nobody is more critical of Trump then me.
I think he came off very well here.
No scream here. Simply the MSM running interference for their Gods in the Democratic Party. I’m no fan of Trump but the CNBC’s pathetic attempt at character assassination shows me they deserve even less of my respect. Pathetic
In this total Trump thing..I am most angry at CPAC for giving him a speaking gig. That's what started it all.Trump is NOT a conservative, and he never should have been invited. CPAC needs to change, BIG TIME
What? I hear Trump defending himself...not screaming like Dean...jeesh.
Thanks for saving me the time to watch it.
I’d rather him stay in the private sector and rent out his name than to have him in the White House where he might rent out the Lincoln bedroom or something crazy like that.
Donald Trump demanding a New York Times reporter publicly defend his work face to face falls into the “plus” column for any conservative voter.
The Times has been able to hide behind their first amendment moat for too long, without having to worry about serious counter attacks.
This doesn't make the Donald a conservative, but in this case, it doesn't hurt him politically.
Uh, no. Clinton was the one that rented out the Lincoln bedroom.
I'm no fan of Trump. But your reciting eulogy over his campaign seems a bit premature.
After the Obama branding effort, any Democrat criticism of Trump branding is hypocrisy.
Reminds me of a quote....
“I’d rather have him inside the tent pissing out, than outside the tent pissing in.”
Uh, I know. I didn't think my post needed a < sarc> tag.
Anyone have a clue why it's that way?
Watch for the rental sign now on the WH.
Wheres the career ending Dean scream? In fact everything he said is 100 percent true. Yes NY Times there actually was a real estate market collapse, we are still in a market collapse. Millions of people lost their property, 401K’s, filed bankruptcy, went underwater in their investments, lost their jobs, went on unemployment for the first time in their lives, etc. Anybody who did not buy real estate or commercial property between around 2004 and 2008 got lucky and dodged a bullet. Trump indeed did them a favor because they would have lost millions instead of thousands.
Anything "NBC" is in the pants of Obama...they'll do whatever it takes(even if it's made-up)to destroy anyone questioning/pressuring "The One".
This goes back to the old “if a tree falls in the forest” paradigm. Who listens to this network anyway?
“Hey,Simon, whoever you are”.....That was good. Put those fools in their place.
A Dean moment? I don’t think so. I think he comes off just fine. I wish we had someone else in the GOP that would actually get in reporter’s faces and correct them.
This was NO Dean moment. Pretty disgusting of the media, but that is their standard MO. What the heck is the problem with the “conservatives” who are supporting the media’s contention? Pathetic.
Definitely not a dean moment. I watched the Dean Scream live and called people into the room to show them. It looked like he literally lost his mind on national tv. He was gyrating around, yelling out all the cities his shriveling campaign was still going to win, and then his mouth opened up into a creepy scream. Only a strait jacket was missing.
Did they write the headline before or after they listened to this. Trump destroyed these two commie libs.
Pray for America
