You're right, posting a publicly available photo of his home taken from the street IS exactly the same as being the "never before heard inside voice" on a documentary expose of the family.

Why do you guys think he came from nothing? His father owned a brokerage firm and was a congressman and his grandparents owned a grocery business.

But yea the way he treats his family IMO is brutal

I should have been more careful with my words - it's not that his family didn't have any money, it's that he wasn't given a bunch of it - he started out with his own money from his own odd jobs, then started raising money from his friends, then acquaintances, etc.

The man is brilliant. There is no denying that. Whether you like him or not is a matter of opinion.
