Carnival barker Donald Trump is reportedly eyeing a 2016 presidential run. Lord, please let him run and become the GOP nominee with Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann or Allen West as his running mate. The Democrats would be certain of another four years in the White House. This is precisely the kind of madness Bob Dole referred to when he said the RNC should hang a “closed for repairs” sign on its doors as the party seeks to rehabilitate itself. Um, The Donald and his ego aren’t finished flirting with the presidency.
Donald Trump has spent more than $1 million on electoral research for a potential presidential run in 2016.
Sources said the tough-talking “Celebrity Apprentice” host is increasingly being asked to speak at Republican events, and he appeared at the Oakland County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner in Novi, Mich., last week to a record crowd of 2,300.
“Everybody tells me, ‘Please run for president. Please run for president.’ I would be much happier if a great and competent person came along,” Trump reportedly told attendees. “I’d be happy if President Obama did a great job. I’m a Republican, but before anything, I love this country. I would love to see somebody come in who is going to be great.”
Here’s my question, whose money did he use on his so-called electoral research? Personal or corporate funds? If he used the latter, it’s illegal. Um, his ego is so big, he thinks he can beat Hillary Clinton in 2016 if she chooses to run. Nothing more than another vanity run for Trump. Can you say Seth Meyers?
