    "Rich people only like being around rich people," he said. "Nobody likes being around poor people, especially poor people."

    that one line is the sound bite that will come out of it, but the entire context paints a different picture.

    he's right of course about the sentiment, but nobody will be able to get past his choice of words to see that.

    no, that's not his point at all.

    people want to go to a nice hotel that has a reputation of catering to rich people and it makes them feel rich even if they aren't.

    nobody wants to go to a slum hotel with poor people. even the poor people who are there wish they could go somewhere nicer.

    I feel like Wynn has said something that is part of the core belief of Vegas, but he said it really inartfully. He said it like an asshole. But part of what Vegas sells -- and part of its huge appeal -- is a fantasy. An escape. Being/doing/living things you never would do in your "real" life. And a big part of that now? A celebrity or rich experience ... see how the other half lives. It's an exceptional escape, but I feel like Steve had a bit of a "Trump" moment where he said things without the proper varnish on them.

    Really? You can't have fun being around people with just twice as much money as you?
    Are you that insecure?

    It's refreshing to hear somebody speaking their mind and not sugar-coating every word. This is why Trump is so popular, no filter.

    I only have fun being around people with at least ten times as much money as me.:D My grandfather always said "you are judged by the company you keep". I like to be in good company.

    Trump is popular because America is full of trailer-dwelling crackers. ;)

    Fuck, I'm a writer, EVERYONE has more money than me.

    In a couple of weeks I am going to be around people who, I say probably as I do not know for sure, have way more money than I do or may ever have, and I plan to have one hell of a time with them. A-holes come in every financial level, as do fun and inviting people.
