As Carly Fiorina checkmated Donald Trump’s “you have a pretty face” gaffe/apology and challenged the 11-strong GOP “boys’ club” presidential candidate lineup at the September 16 presidential Olympiad at the Ronald Reagan Memorial Library, I recalled Fiorina’s address at the October 1, 2002 Appeal of Conscience Foundation Awards Dinner at which she was an honoree.
As Donald Trump is being credited for Fox News’s kvelling at the largest-ever viewership of the August 6th GOP primary debate, I thought back to my first Trump encounter at the June 1990 American Booksellers Association Convention in Las Vegas where the hottest ticket was the by-invitation-only reception launch of his book “Staying on Top” (Random House).
In honor of The Donald’s candidacy for the Republican nomination, Vanity Fair has re-published a 1990 profile of Donald Trump, written by Marie Brenner. Remember, this was back before his hair (can we even call it that?) was fodder for every comic ever. Instead, they had to settle for his blatant sexism, racism, and overinflated ego.
