Władziu Valentino Liberace died on February 4, 1987, from a strain of pneumonia brought on by AIDS. However, six weeks before the legendary pianist’s passing, he revealed to Oprah Winfrey what Donald Trump did during one of their shopping trips together. This is one video the liberal mainstream media does not want you to see!
“I went shopping with Donald Trump in the Trump Tower,” recounted Liberace to Oprah in the weeks before his death. “I had a nice fur coat on, and we went up to this furrier, and Donald saw this coat and he said, ‘Why don’t you try that on? That kind of looks like you,'” the famed pianist recalled at the time.
“And I tried it on,” continued Liberace. “I said, ‘Do you really think it looks like me?’ He says, ‘I like it better than the one you’re wearing.’ So I say, ‘Well maybe I should get it then.’ He said, ‘No, wait, wait,'” Liberace continued to reminisce.
“So we left, and I said, ‘Why wouldn’t you let me buy that coat?'” Liberace asked. “Because, he said, ‘I can get a better price for you,'” as he and the audience both chuckled.
Long before Donald Trump became the President of the United States, he was putting his deal-making skills to good use, according to The Western Journal. Trump outlined his methodology in “Trump: The Art of the Deal,” a best-selling book that included 11 steps for business success:
- Think big
- Protect the downside and the upside will take care of itself
- Maximize your options
- Know your market
- Use your leverage
- Enhance your location
- Get the word out
- Fight back
- Deliver the goods
- Contain the costs
- Have fun
You can view the entirety of Liberace’s performance on Oprah below. It was his final performance, so it is definitely worth the view. It also just so happens to be the iconic musician’s medley of several classic songs.
Of course, it is unknown what Liberace would think about his friend Donald Trump’s presidency were the musician still alive. Although, some might argue that he’d be in support of it, given the many personality traits which the two men shared.
A British news outlet noted the comparison between the two men shortly after Trump was elected:
Liberace died of Aids in 1987 at the age of 67, having achieved all the fame and riches he wanted. But perhaps, if he were still alive today, he might have aspired to an even higher peak of celebrity, the presidency of the United States. As a conservative with a fervent belief in capitalism, he might even have had a chance of success. For somebody very similar to him has just shown that such an implausible thing can be achieved. It has only just occurred to me, but Liberace and Donald Trump have a lot in common.
The most obvious thing is their taste for flamboyant luxury. ‘Too much of a good thing is wonderful,’ was Liberace’s motto, but it could just as well be Trump’s. Donald’s triplex home in Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue may reflect his greater wealth in its grandiosity, but its décor and furnishings are strikingly similar to those of Liberace’s former house in Las Vegas. In both there is a proliferation of gold paint, chandeliers, candelabra, swirling frescoes and classical motifs… [Source: The Spectator]
Indeed, it is likely that Liberace would have been very much in support of Trump’s presidency if he were still alive today, and who could blame him? President Trump is now putting the same business principals he shared with the late pianist to use for the American people. For that, we can all be grateful.
