Donald Trump said something like “That’s a little rich,” and Sinatra took issue with it, told his then manager Elliot Weissman “either you tell him that I said ‘Go f— yourself’ or give me his phone number and I’ll do it.” Weissman went back to Trump’s office and said– quote– “Sinatra says Go F— yourself.” And Frank ended up playing at the Sands in Las Vegas instead, which is where he did the famous recording Live From the Sands.
