One of the Greatest
One summer when I nearing the end of my teenage years, I played poker occasionally with my friends, Robert, Kenneth, and Peter, who were brothers. They had an impressive house overlooking Huntington Bay on Long Island. Their father had made a lot of money. At one of these sessions, as one of them, after successful bluffing, raked in the chips, he said, “As dad says, ‘Play ‘em as if you got ‘em’.”
That’s Trump’s way of operating, in spades. He’s one of the greatest bluffers of all time. It’s his only talent, but it’s taken him a long way.
