When he was a kid, did Trump spend a lot of time watching Arthur Godfrey?


I was wondering if the Lipton ad gave him the idea for a Goya ad.

    Wow. Thanks for the blast from the past.

    Trump was almost certainly exposed to Arthur Godfrey. He was a GIANT in radio and TC. Only Godfrey could keep an audience through a ten minute soup commercial,.

    Probably.  Most people did. He had a very popular morning radio program before TV.  It is a pretty good bet his mother listened while she took care of the kids.  One time he fired somebody on the air for something.  It was a big deal.
