Trump -- Hero to Heyyyyyy-O

8/14/2008 9:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With all the money he's saved from firing people, Donald Trump may be bailing out Ed McMahon.

Trump has agreed to buy Ed's Bev Hills mansion, which McMahon is about to lose, and lease it back to him so Ed has a place to stay -- according to the L.A. Times.

We've confirmed Alex Davis of Hilton & Hyland, a top Bev Hills real estate firm, flew to NYC and made the appeal to The Donald.

According to the newspaper, Trump said, "When I was at the Wharton School of Business...I'd watch him every night. How could this happen?"

Unclear how much Donald will plunk down. The house was listed a while back for $7 mil but the asking price fell like a rock -- this weekend it was listed for $4.6 mil.

Well you know what, I think it's great that Mr. Trump came through for him. None of the Ed's other rich friends came to help him. Where is Jerry Lewis or Johnny Carson's widows, where are all of his rich producer friends at. When your down, you really know who your friends truly are.

Hmmm whole array of comments, Trump is Trump, as much as he is a super ego maniac he gets things done! Wish he was president for the simple fact he knows what he is doing. For some reason we hate the trait in people who become successful.
You kinda hate him but I wish I knew what he knows about finance and had a tenth of his cash. We have two politicians who know nothing about finance making statements ab out nothing with no history trying to fix the biggest financial mess in history.
I hope Trump can advise who ever wins...Ed Mcbrokenstupor? I dont know his is an old guy part of America, bonehead move on his part, but we as a nation are better then throwing a guy on the street. I mean everyone, not just the famous boneheads but all boneheads. With one exception kick the current pres to the curb!
