Rudy Ghouliani and the art of the American comeback | Financial Times
Trump: The Art of The Comeback opens with his “Top Ten Comeback Tips”. These range from “Play Golf” to “Always have a prenuptial agreement”. Here they are — reduplicated — and in no way tampered with by yours truly.

Number one: Play Golf. Every mulligan is a mini comeback.

Number two: Stay Focused. Especially when tweeting. Covfefe.

Number three: Be Paranoid. No one will be able to tell if you’re crazy like a fox, or crazy like a Fox TV show.

Number four: Be Passionate. Stormy, even.

Number five: Go Against the Tide. Or just command it to halt. Like King Canute. Great guy, Canute. Did an AMAZING job on the tide. Total winner.

Number six: Go With Your Gut. I have the best gut. It’s because I refuse to eat crow. Or dirt.

Number seven: Work With People You Like. Why else would I hire my family?

Number eight: Be lucky. Not to be confused with Get Lucky. (See four).

Number nine: Get Even. With China.

Number ten: Always have a prenuptial agreement. Ivana my money back!

Trump: The Art of The Comeback was published in 1997. Two decades later Trump’s blond ambition — and Giuliani’s bald ambition — have embraced a new vision of the American comeback.
