Attention Whore CEO vs. Attention Whore CEO......all we need is to add in Mark Cuban and that creep from the Buy.com commercials** and we could make this a Fatal Fourway match for the ages.
I know being in the public eye is a part of Donald Trump's deal, but I'm seriously sick of this guy. I'm not going to go into a Rosie O'Donnell rant (I'm straight, not a woman, and borderline funny, all things she isn't) but seriously this guy needs to get off of my television soon.
** I was going to make a new post for the Buy.com guy, but I don't want to be the Guy Who Posts Too Much, so I'll just add some commentary here. If I was an investor in Buy.com, I'd be selling my stock as fast as Piazza could process the Sell order. His goofy Generation X appearance is so calculated it is ridiculous. I guess he is trying to make his company appear like the hip alternative to Amazon.com, but this is such a losing strategy. Amazon isn't necessarily cool, but why should it be? If I'm ordering books, CDs and the occasional Olsen Twin DVD, I just want the site to be functional, not trendy. A CEO with a faux-hawk, t-shirt and jeans doesn't inspire confidence in me, it inspires laughter.
And he is way WAY too proud of his non-descript office building. Is that your empire? At least fake it and make it look like you are based out of a major city, not an office park in Woodbridge, NJ.
