Is Trump For Real? Comments (0)


Esquire's new cover story on Donald Trump—great cover and cover line—is preceded by a letter from the EIC, who thinks Trump is just playing a game:

It was business as usual inside Trump Tower, and he broke off the interview right in the middle to give me a call.

After he bragged that he had "destroyed" Ben Carson ("I had to do it"), he was off on a conversation very much like the one I wrote about in my editor's letter two months ago. Here's how it ended this time:

"Yeah. So good to talk to you, man. So good. Hey, call me, like, in Florida or something; we'll play. You know, I have Doral, I have Palm Beach, so whenever you're down there, call me and we'll play, okay? Or you'll play with some friends. But call me, okay? You take care of yourself, David. Have a good time, thanks."

This is not a man who is planning to occupy the White House. This is not the man who personifies the rage that is rippling through our culture. When you talk with Donald, you get the distinct impression that he's enjoying this other person, this fellow named Donald Trump, out there tuning up the rubes.

I think this outlook is dangerous because Trump could very well win the nomination and the presidency. It is not out of the question. And if he does, it will not matter if he was just having fun and ginning people up—he will be the most powerful dude on Earth, for real.

Balls To The Wall: Tom Hardy For ESQUIRE Comments (0)

Tom Hardy is looking unbelievably hot on and in Esquire (May 2014). The magazine identifies him as genuinely dangerous and possibly the greatest actor of his generation. For some reason, they asked him to shave off his beard:

“We asked Hardy to shave his beard. His response: 'I ain't shaving my beard for you. To shave my beard off would be to cut my fking [sic] nuts off...and give them to you to sell.'”

I wouldn't sell them.

Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Asshole Comments (5)

My main man James Franco looks dapper on Esquire (September 2010). Inside, he says that when he showed one of his student films at NYU:

"It got a little ugly. One faculty member—she's always tough on me, but she flat-out called me an asshole. She jumped me. She was muttering it the whole time: What an asshole. What an asshole."

Several more pix of this gorgeous, artsy-fartsy (in the best sense) asshole after the jump...

Please Do As I Say & I'll Do As I Please Comments (2)


Newt Deep within Esquire's eye-popping (as opposed to eye-rolling, though there is plenty of that, too) profile on sure-to-be 2012 presidential contender Newt Gingrich is a fascinating, honest and insightful exchange he had with his second wife after she found out he intended to repeat history and divorce her for a newer model.

He'd just given a high-profile speech touting family values when second wife Marianne Ginther asked him point-blank how he could give that kind of speech in light of what he was actually doing in private. Gingrich, she remembers, said:

"It doesn't matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There's no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn't matter what I live."

Wow...that completely sums up all the hypocrisy of our leaders (not exclusively, but especially, the right-wing ones) both political and religious who do as they please while asking us to do as they say.

And this clown is back to haunt us a legitimate potential candidate for the presidency.
