During a speech in Utah last week, Mitt Romney blasted Donald Trump over several of his failed business ventures, including Trump Steaks.
Earlier this week, in what looked more like a QVC infomercial than a campaign speech, The Donald trotted out Trump Water, Trump Wine and, yes, Trump Steaks — as part of an effort to refute Romney’s charges.
Wednesday night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper caught up with The Donald and grilled him (pun intended) over those steaks.
While he insisted that the steaks were Trump Steaks, a meat supplier confirmed that they were, in fact, purchased locally.
He argued that the steaks were Trump steaks (lower-case “s” intended), because steak is a menu item at his hotels and clubs. Still with me?
Now, for the rest of the story:
“We literally sold almost no steaks. If we sold $50,000 of steaks grand total, I’d be surprised.”
Oh, I almost forgot. The name of that local supplier? Bush Brothers Provisional Company.
