Tax evasion, as I had mentioned before. Campaign contributions in his "oh, I totally don't need your money bro" campaign would also be a scandalous thing he'd like to hide.

I never said that.

Than that tells me more about the kind of person you are. If you for a second think Donald Trump is any sort of a decent human being, there'll be a problem.
I call it rational to use the same criteria for judging what makes a good businessman from one person to the other. Also, businessman is not a synonym for good person.

Him being in the upper class though, he can get away with it. Sounds fair to me.

Are we not talking about the debate?

So, you're telling me a business man with no bankruptcies and a successful business plan is in the same realm as Donald Trump?

Please inform us of the businessmen you are comparing Trump to and their business records.

I am talking about the media coverage in general.

I've no idea what you're on about so I'll put my main point forward: I'm saying that I have one set of rules to decide what makes someone a good or a bad businessman. I don't have general rules and then a separate list of Donald Trump rules because that is irrational. I try not to consciously skirt being as objective as I can.

I'm...not comparing anybody? You're quoting the wrong person.

Sarcasm isn't a good look for you.

Fair enough. I misinterpreted your initial response then.

It may be irrational, but you can't put Donald Trump in the same list as someone who has grown a successful business from the ground up with no money to their name prior to starting their business. Donald Trump was born and raised into upper class.

You yourself brought up Bill Gates, which to my knowledge has only filed for bankruptcy once or twice.

Donald Trump
Bill Gates

They are now on the same list.

But seriously, my point was judge them by the same standards, not that they are the same person.
