    That Trump sprinkler story seems like the perfect distillation of just what a lousy, brain-dead business mind Mr. Art-of-the-Deal really is. The cost of installing sprinklers is a rounding error compared to the possible knock-on effects of not installing them. After the Deepwater Horizon blew it emerged that an engineering contractor saved a bit of money by using cheaper concrete in the well shaft. Of course, those “savings” were swamped about a million-fold (literally) by the ensuing costs of that decision. But President Shithead seems to believe that kind of thinking is wise.

    Seems like when you’re building a billion-dollar structure, skimping on elementary safety investments is pretty stupid. But to “bottom line” clowns, it’s the essence of sound judgement.
