A while ago, a doorman at one of Donald Trump’s New York City buildings was allegedly paid $30,000 by the National Enquirer's parent company for a rumor that the President of the United States once fathered a child with an employee at Trump World Tower. The contract forbade the doorman from talking about this, saying he’d have to pay $1 million if he shared the rumor or terms of the deal with anyone. But then … nothing. Nobody ran with the doorman’s story, despite the fact that the Associated Press admitted to having it last August, but deciding not to publish. So basically, this man just got a whole bunch of money for telling a tale that nobody could confirm. Doesn’t everyone else do that every day? We’re still waiting on our paychecks.
