|"I'm serious this time dammit! Why won't anybody take me seriously?"|
Donald Trump will launch a presidential exploratory committee Wednesday, the eve of the business mogul’s return to New Hampshire.
A senior adviser tells the New Hampshire Union Leader that Trump will not be renewing his contract with NBC for the reality television “Apprentice” series.
Combined with staff hires, Trump’s announcement that he will form an exploratory committee for the first time is a sign the billionaire is seriously considering running for the Republican nomination.
Yeah, no he's not. But he will play this thing out once again in order to attract some media attention and keep his name in the headlines.
Here is Trump's announcement. (You might want to wear hip waders for this):
I have a great love for our country, but it is a country that is in serious trouble. We have lost the respect of the entire world. Americans deserve better than what they get from their politicians – who are all talk and no action! I have built a great company, created thousands of jobs and built a tremendous net worth with some of the finest and most prestigious assets in the world – and very little debt! All Americans deserve the same opportunity. Our real unemployment rate is staggering while our manufacturing base is eroding on a daily basis. We must rebuild our infrastructure, control our borders, support local control of education, greatly strengthen our military, care for our veterans and put Americans back to work! We must stop other countries from totally taking advantage of our representatives who are being out-negotiated at every turn. I am the only one who can make America truly great again!"
Now I don't know about the rest of you, but I am simply incapable of imagining any scenario where Donald "Yes dammit that's my hair" Trump would be our only hope of saving America.
As for what he brings to the table as a candidate, I think that our President did a great job or outlining that during the Correspondent's Dinner back in 2011.
Yep, that about sums him up.
Look I am going to go ahead and count all of the little red noses as each of the buffoons climbs into the clown car, Just like I did when Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee started making serious noise that they were exploring the possibility of running.
But we already know that the final two will be Hillary and Jeb Bush, so all of this is just a silly distraction from the real contest to come. (P.S. This of course holds true if there is nothing super serious that derails one or both of these campaigns. And I mean dead hooker in the trunk serious, not used private e-mails serious.)
