Władziu Valentino Liberace died in 1987 from a strain of pneumonia and AIDS. However, almost two months before his death, Liberace told Oprah Winfrey what Donald Trump did at the time. You can bet that liberals would never want you to see this video.
“I went shopping with Donald Trump in the Trump Tower. I had a nice fur coat on, and we went up to this furrier, and Donald saw this coat and he said, ‘Why don’t you try that on? That kind of looks like you,’” Liberace told Oprah.
“And I tried it on. I said, ‘Do you really think it looks like me?’ He says, ‘I like it better than the one you’re wearing.’ So I say, ‘Well maybe I should get it then.’ He said, ‘No, wait, wait,’” Liberace added..
“So we left, and I said, ‘Why wouldn’t you let me buy that coat?’ Because, he said, ‘I can get a better price for you,’” he said and the audience laughed.
Long before President Trump took oath in office, he was making great deals. He discussed the methodology in “Trump: The Art of the Deal.” This was his best-selling book, including 11 steps of becoming great businessman.

We cannot really tell how would Liberace interpret President Donald Trump’s attitude these days. Would he approve his presidency? Who knows… Maybe Liberace would have been the President’s greatest supporter.
“Liberace died of Aids in 1987 at the age of 67, having achieved all the fame and riches he wanted. But perhaps, if he were still alive today, he might have aspired to an even higher peak of celebrity, the presidency of the United States. As a conservative with a fervent belief in capitalism, he might even have had a chance of success. For somebody very similar to him has just shown that such an implausible thing can be achieved. It has only just occurred to me, but Liberace and Donald Trump have a lot in common.
The most obvious thing is their taste for flamboyant luxury. ‘Too much of a good thing is wonderful,’ was Liberace’s motto, but it could just as well be Trump’s. Donald’s triplex home in Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue may reflect his greater wealth in its grandiosity, but its décor and furnishings are strikingly similar to those of Liberace’s former house in Las Vegas. In both there is a proliferation of gold paint, chandeliers, candelabra, swirling frescoes and classical motifs…” as reported by The Spectator.
