Donald Trump fires Carolyn for excessive self promotion: Not as hypocritical as you'd think
Only, I’m not sure Trump is as big of a hypocrite as he at first appears.
The New York Post story that broke the news, quotes an unnamed source saying that Trump couldn’t reach Carolyn because she was off making $25,000 appearance speeches. Look, Trump called me out of the blue once to argue (very politely) that his Trump National LA should have been included in TravelGolf.com’s Top 10 SoCal courses. Trump is so hands on and into every aspect of his business empire that he’s taking the time to seek out golf writers. That tells you all you need to know about his work ethic and zeal. The man’s going nonstop.
Come to think of it, Carolyn Kepcher - who was actually in charge of Trump’s golf division - probably should have made calls like that before Trump himself ever even thought of them. Though I’m not sure if Carolyn even knows who Golf Digest’s Ron Whitten is, let alone anyone from an online media outlet. Even one that draws almost three million reader hits per month.
The New York Post also reported a source saying that Carolyn did not seem to know any of the merchandise prices at one of Trump’s high-end clubhouses.
I actually did interview Carolyn Kepcher at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe recently. It turns out this might have been one of her last interviews as a Trump employee. In that light, what she said about The Donald himself is even more interesting.
Stay tuned to TravelGolf.com for the complete Carolyn interview soon.
