    LOL @ Deb…

    Those claiming that Snopes is a liberal/left-wing couple who prefer to err on the side of Liberal beliefs are only saying so because someone posted a link to Snopes that doesn’t agree with their own beliefs. They will also attempt to talk about their consistency saying something is false or true about unverifiable information in an attempt to pivot and dismiss the content of said Snopes reference.

    “Even if only two or so are true, that’s more than a lot of wealthy people do.” – Also so completely false.

    Also blaming every media outlet that isn’t openly conservatively biased as being biased and corrupt with an HRC agenda is another perfect scapegoat for the failing of their own nominee and candidate, and the perhaps the most successful lie put forth by conservative media. You want to know why the media doesn’t talk about this? How about you ask why the Trump campaign themselves doesn’t talk about this? It’s because they can’t backup any of this BS, which could easily be backed up if they were in fact true. Think about it.

    Those citing Snopes need to understand that Snopes is a site owned by a liberal/left-wing couple who prefer to err on the side of Liberal beliefs. IOW, if they can’t verify a positive conservative/Republican story, they label it as False. It it’s a positive liberal/Democrat story, even if it can’t be verified, it isn’t False. It’s merely unverified. There are lots of stories/reports about Trump helping people. The sheer number of stories would indicate truth in at least some of them. Even if only two or so are true, that’s more than a lot of wealthy people do.

    If it looks like BS, and sounds like BS, it’s probably BS… http://www.snopes.com/luck/trump.asp

    I personally recal hearing this story. When I heard it, my best recollection was prior to May 1994. I heard it at work from a coworker. Basically this limo was on side of road, I believe it was a flat tire. And the limo did not have a jack, or the appropriate jack. I believe it was in Chicago because the person relaying the story seemed to be telling it to me from the standpoint that it was someone that she knew. As best as I can recall it was a personal story and not heard on the radio, for if it was on the radio, this would be much easier to verify, along with several thousand other listeners, albeit some time ago. Additionally at the time time Trump was investing or building casinos around that time in Joliett or Gary Ind, etc. Anyway after the flat tire was changed the driver wanted to know if the tire changer wanted to meet the limo passenger, and so he did. Trump wanted to know if there was anything he could do for him. I recall that the tire changers wife’s birthday was approaching and that she’d get a kick out of it if you’d send her some flowers. The birthday came and went, no flowers. Some time later, the paid off mortgage, deed, etc showed up in the mail. I can verify two things with absolute certainty. First, I recall hearing the story with all the above details, and secondly it happened sometime prior to May 1994, but no earlier than 1993, but not 1995 as many internet websites have said. Additionally, as far as I recall hearing, the tire changer was alone, his wife was not with him in the car, etc. the more I think about it, the jack for the car was the problem and the tire changer had a jack. The tire changer stopped just to help out.

    A few years ago we had the former US Marine who accidentally crossed into Mexico with a gun in his car, and ended up getting tossed in jail down there where he sat for quite a while – months, I believe. Greta Van Susteren of Fox and Donald Trump worked to get him freed from the jail (what did Obama / Hillary / Kerry do??) and once he was back in the US, Trump gave him a cash gift to help him get his life back in order. I doubt it was a small amount; Greta Van Susteren confirmed the story on her show several months ago and again a few days ago- I saw when she did it. So you can not say he’s a terrible person. He is just another angry American who is sickened by the corruption we have in DC now Trump 2016 all the way to the White House!!!

    @Delbert: If you need proof that Mr. Trump is capable of being a kind-hearted person, then watch this video from an episode of Maury that initially aired in 2000.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6PtMGsaKno&feature=youtu.be There’s mention of this act-of-kindness in the comments there too and a few other examples.
    I’m sure Donald knows enough people to easily find out the name of the mortgage company and the payoff amount for this couple too.

  8. Delbert says:

    Can this story be verified ?
    How would Donald Trump, know the Name of the mortgage company and the payoff amount ?

    1. Hugh says:

      @Delbert! Dear Mr. Skeptic, I am probably the best third party verification of the mortgage payoff you will find. Five days before this story was printed I had posted a thread on Facebook after meeting someone outside of any internet social media and hence came this article about five days later. Like anything else concerning Mr. Trump I initially received great abuse and interrogation over my comment. I do not know or have I ever met Mr. Trump but at the time I was talking about Mr. Trump to someone and was told his friend was on his way who knew a lot about Mr. Trump. When he arrived he told me about this as well as other things like Mr. Trump being the kind of boss who took advise from lower tier employees over actual engineers. I believe the dispute had been over getting paint to stick to the sealing of one his buildings. He even made comment to Mr. Trump having paper tuxedos made for the painters and buying lunch for the workers Also that his boss had an open door policy with Mr. Trump. I believe the payoff on the mortgage was somewhere in the neighborhood of $284,000.00. In any event, if it would have only been a thousand it’s the thought that counts. It is the way I feel Mr. Trump handles things. He did not need to do it but he did. If he likes you he will go out of his way to help you and others and this is my fix on the man.
      Hope this has been helpful. I only came across your question as a result of coming back to view the article again myself. You may wish to email Donald J. Trump and ask him yourself.

    Hillary would have told them to ‘FU^K OFF’ just like she does her Secret Service detail. You don’t hear anything about this side of the guy.
    Paid off their mortgage…………. that’s pretty nice, even for a rich guy.

  11. Marilyn says:

    I like Trump because he is different – we need someone different from what we have had in Washington for so long. If anyone can save our country it is him.

  12. s says:

    thats a wonderful gesture, but i wonder why the driver or trump couldnt change the tire? no jack or wrench in the limo?! odd that.

  13. Tina says:

    he is a good Christian man.. we need change, we need a leader that will stand up for this country not continually say sorry.. we need real leadership, our allies need to know we got their backs especially Israel.. Obama needs to go sooner the better !!! I SAY A TRUMP /PALIN TICKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Brian says:

    Trump also helped a widow in Georgia pay off her farm land that was to be confiscate. The husband who was a 4th generation planter on his land committed suicide in hopes the insurance money would help his wife secure their land for future generations… Trump stepped in and saved her by threatening the banks with news coverage and with the help of others financially secured her land.

  15. Carole says:

    I wear a tee shirt supporting trump and I get told whenever I am out how much people like my shirt and then we discuss why we support Trump. It starts out he is no politician then segues into we need someone who understands business and deal making. We also agree he knows how to delegate to the most effective people the work needing done. And that when he wants advice he will find the most qualified military people he can and listen to their advice.

  16. Michael says:

    I’m voting for Trump, We need a leader, not more spineless career politicians. TERM LIMITS FOR ALL PUBLIC OFFICES!!!!!!!!!

  17. Pat says:

    I’d change his tire… anytime. I hope he does win! I think the best America could do at this point in the game is to NOT have a politician but a businessman.

  18. George says:

    Hell yes I’m sick and tired of the same old politics, where nothing gets done.

  19. Perley J says:

    The Donald seems far and away the best choice for president so far.

  20. Jack says:

    That is a true story it happened on the GSP but it was not a couple that stopped the guy that stopped was one of the cb ers that traveled the GSP every day he changed the flat and would not take anything from the driver . He told Trump that the next week was his wedding anniversary and to send his wife some flowers

    1. Peter says:

      I do remember that day it was only the guy that helped out

  21. Nik says:

    Class act, The Don is.

  22. Eugenie says:

    Sorry, an urban legend.

    1. David says:

      And you know this how?

  23. Carol says:

    Trump has my vote, plus the rest of the family. I know he can make America great again.

  24. Cheryl says:

    I Absolutely do support him !! He will make America great again !
