– Blogger also ends long-term, unofficial sponsorship –
New York, March 10, 2016 — The blogger known as RepMan today announced he would be returning a 2004 book, entitled, “The best business advice I’ve ever received.”
The book was “written” by Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, (@) and contained anecdotes from some 100 leading executives.
RepMan also announced his blog would no longer be an unofficial sponsor of any of Trump’s 7,581 brands (Note to readers: RepMan earned his MBA at Trump University and routinely catered personal and professional parties with Trump steaks).
“I do my best to avoid endorsing any political candidate and, in fact, today’s decisions have nothing to do with Mr. Trump’s controversial pronouncements,” said RepMan. “Rather, it’s a statement about my blog’s ethical and moral beliefs.”
He continued, “While our sponsorship standards are unbelievably low, we felt we had to draw a line in the sand at some point.”
Rep was quick to point out that RepMan has a consistent record of ending sponsorships with controversial public figures including Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds and Anthony Weiner.
“It’s important to note that none of the individuals named above, including Mr. Trump, had any inkling we’d even been sponsoring them in the first place, added RepMan.
A typical RepMan sponsorship includes an occasional mention in a blog or link to a pertinent article. It can also include absolutely no mention whatsoever of the high-profile figure.
In closing, RepMan likened his sending Trump’s book back to Trump to John Lennon’s returning his Knight of the British Empire (KBE) medal to Buckingham Palace in the midst of the Vietnam War. “Plus, ‘Instant Karma’ is one of my all-time favorite tunes,” he added.
