A Special Correspondent alerted me to a couple of recently published articles about Dear Leader.
I personally do not believe they are accurate as I think he is smarter than accumulating this sort of personal wealth. Why get the money and leave yourself open to attack, when you can control the money and be completely protected?
If he whispers the word that money need be spent on something, it IS spent.
He has a team of personal sycophants that take care of his every need. If he decides he must only eat beluga caviar and white truffles at $2000 per meal, rest assured, it will be done, and it will not come out of his pocket.
New bespoke suits? “How many would you like Sir, we know it is important that you not wear the same thing twice?”
Flying to Telluride for a weekend getaway? Of course, the G5 will be on standby.
New car? BMW? Mercedes? Bentley? “Yes, Sir, we will never mention a Bentley again as it is too conspicuous.”
He lives the lifestyle of the rich and (in)famous, but his personal wealthy is likely less than $10 million.
It is an elaborate set up to protect him, and these articles must be his worst nightmare (but on the other hand, they recognize him as someone important, so while he is screaming at someone for “allowing” them to be published, he is secretly happy with himself for having “made it.”)
