The Man with the Famously Bad Hair, Splitting Hairs?

Trump keeps saying he’s going to sue Rosie O’Donnell because he has never declared bankruptcy. I gather he is saying he never claimed “personal” bankruptcy, because as far as I’ve read his casinos filed Chapter 11 a few times..

Is The Donald just following in the footsteps of our government (manipulating language to say something that is true but not really – like when we were kids and with pure juvenile logic swore we didn’t eat “all the cookies” because, well, we left one)? Maybe this Donald quote when interviewed about the 2004 Chapter 11 filing will shed some light:

“I don’t think it’s a failure, it’s a success,” he said in the interview. “In this case, it was just something that worked better than other alternatives. It’s really just a technical thing, but it came together.”

Then again, Rosie said four times and I can only find three – 1990, 1992, 1993. Now, these were his businesses, not him – haha. “Hundreds of millions of dollars” were lost by banks and bond holders in the 1990/1 bankruptcy, but poor Donald had to give up 50% ownership to the bondholders.
