    I wonder if the plaintiffs‘ attorneys have been engaged on a contingency basis. That would be very telling about the true merits of the buyers‘ decision to sue where they would have virtually nothing to lose, as in nothing invested, while they hope and dream of a big payday from one of America‘s most preeminent developers. The point is that if they moronically relied on Donald Trump being the "Developer" or "Sponsor" when it was clear from all documentation that he was merely a licensor and not the Developer, they are evidently not fluent in the English language. As a luxury condominium high-rise Developer, I have developed or converted over 5,000 units in South Florida. I can tell you that there is no shortage of buyers‘ remorse claims that are concocted by disillusioned condo buyers, supported by their all-too-willing-to-sue-attorneys in an attempt to rely on fiction to press their delusional claims and feckless bases to overcome their own flawed purchase decisions.
    That‘s my story and I‘m sticking to it.
