I don’t think Donald Trump wanted to be President.
I think he ran to increase his profile and make more money. The ego side of his loves being the President, but the practical side hates that it is a hard job and he has to do real work.
Case in point.
According to Dana White, Trump REALLY wanted to see UFC 226 — Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic — and ponied up the $65 to order the pay-per-view on DirecTV.
But, Dana says some “Presidential stuff” went down during the July 7 event, and Trump had to step away from his TV.
A few days later, when Trump finally got some free time to finish the fight — White says the fight was already gone from his DVR … and he couldn’t watch the end on demand.
“So, he said, ‘If I paid for the fight, shouldn’t I get to watch the rest of the fight whenever I’m ready to watch it again?'”
I hate when Presidential stuff gets in the way of my work day. UFC 232 is tonight, wonder if Donny will be watching.
