Donald Trump

Holds (Shaky) Ground

During NYC Earthquake

8/23/2011 1:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump
was working away on the 26th floor of Trump Tower in New York when this afternoon's earthquake struck the East Coast -- and we're told, the Donald stood his ground like a boss.

According to sources close to DT, the earthquake shook the 58-story building -- but Don kept working away like nothing happened ... despite several workers abandoning ship.

Sources tell us, Donald "would never leave his building. He designed these from scratch. If he ever did leave during something disastrous, he'd be the last one out."

Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Who cares? The real reason is because he didn't want to be out in the streets mingling with "normal" people. He's too good for that.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

"How much money am I gonna lose during this whole process, from leaving the desks to returning? How much?!? Screw it! Everyone back to work!"

Seriously, who really cares? If the building he built had structural damage after a pedestrian 5.8 earthquake then he would have a lot of explaining to do. The earthquake wasn't even centered in NY so the effects were even less.

TRUMP STAYS PUT

Donald stays put...not gonna go

A guy with clout and plenty of dough,

The rest can run and hide if they must

Trump doesn't understand what's all this fuss?

I think the real reason he stayed put was because his hair shifted and he was not going out without his stylish "do" being in place.

Unless you're near central park, there is no point in running. If those tall buildings collapse there's nowhere to run to get away from it uness you can make a mad sprint to central park.
