Magazine death pool notes the demise of Trump – a quarterly glossy magazine for affluent Americans.
It carried advertising for overpriced luxury items. No doubt the magazine folded because there aren’t so many affluent Americans these days. Nor are there so many companies selling the yachts and limousines that featured in the ads. Its, er, successful launch was covered in Trump’s Luxury Magazine Off To A Good Start.
Although it carries his name, Trump isn’t the magazine devoted to all things Donald. There was such a monstrosity, but it closed years ago. By all accounts it was a horrible journal.
While it could be argued there’s a satirical aspect to the recently departed publication, Trump magazine is not the same as the Hugh Hefner magazine with the same name that only survived two issues in the 1950s.
