From a recent interview:
- Lamented how the charges had deprived him of being listed by Forbes as the 405th wealthiest person in the world
- Complained about being forced to fly commercial after the government seized his fleet of private jets ("They make you take your shoes off and everything, it's terrible")
- "I always lived very frugally. I flew around on a private jet. I had a boat. But I always lived very frugally."
- Quoth: "I'm the maverick rich Texan where they can put the moose head on the wall. And that's the only reason they went after me."
Because rich Texans always get a raw deal in America.
