In our clown car coverage for this morning, Donald Trump has thrown his ego into 2016 presidential ring. Comedians everywhere drop to their knees to give thanks.

"I'm serious this time dammit! Why won't anybody take me seriously?"
Courtesy of the New Hampshire Union Leader:  

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.)

    No more "celebrity" Apprentice? Now where will the Palin's go to show their expert leadership and fiscal skills? Apprentice ratings must have dropped this last season.

    Off topic, Bristol posted on her Instagram the wedding is in two months! knew it would be a quicky

      Before it begins to show. Question: when you're on your 4th or 5th or is it 6th pregnancy, does it show sooner ?

    2. Anonymous9:55 AM

      In Palin Land, a Bristol engagement lasting two months is an eternity. In Bristol's mind, one month is equal to 2 years. If it only takes a wine cooler and 10 minutes to get pregnant, why should it take longer than two months to get some poor fool to the alter?

      Yes, it does.

    4. Probably to explain the 10 lb preemie with fingernails and a full head of hair.

      You'd think if she was going to fast track the wedding she'd at least have it in JUNE.

      Good luck getting a dress, honey. She'll end up with a bargain rack discount dress. Unless she's had one in the closet all along and just needs to fit into it before she starts to show.

    Never in a million years would Trump make a bad decision like hiring Sarah Palin to do the The Apprentice.

    He would be thrilled to pay Palin millions to be his running mate. PLEASE let the dream ticket happen.

    How many times has Mr. business filed bankruptcy?

    I hope somebody is dusting off the videos of this reject when he was trying to build his world class golf course in Scotland. The way he talked about the people that lived there was so disgusting. I'm surprised those Scots didn't take a shot at that thing on his head.
    He is such a legend in his own mind. The first word that always pops up immediately when I hear the name or see the face is icky.

    2. Didn't he just lose the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City?

      And I seem to recall a foreclosure or fire sale in Florida too.

      He's filed chapter 11 more than once.

    3. Anonymous11:48 AM

      Yes, and others too. Those 4 casinos in Atlantic City should be turned into towering greenhouses.

    New Hampshire Focus Groups Reveal Possible Problems for Bush, Clinton

    O/T TMZ on the case...

    Now that Bristol Palin's got a man ... she has no need for a house -- at least not the one she's been living in because she unloading her half a million dollar home near Sarah Palin.

    Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Bristol is rarely home now that she's all hooked up with her new fiance, Medal of Honor winner Sgt. Dakota Meyer -- so she doesn't need the 3-bed, 3.5-bath 3,200 sq. ft. pad anymore.

    She snagged the lakeside digs in Wasilla back in 2011 for $388k, but now wants $549k for it. We're told she completely remodeled it -- plus, it's got sweet mountain and lake views from the master bedroom.

    As for where Bristol and her man are moving -- we're not sure yet, but we'd be shocked if she ended up in the Lower 48.

    Leaving Mama Bear ... always risky.

      Have they (TMZ) contacted Marina? She is loyal but would be glad to pass on the Palin version, if that is not already one of her jobs. Maybe The Enquirer can get the scoops.

      Has Marina started mentoring Piper yet?

      Happy birthday to my main chick @piper.p my baby forever, light of my life, love you toooo much #babygirl

      piper.p all I want is marinas hair.

      At the office with Palin's dead dog.

      HAS ANYONE SEEN TRACK? Oh, the sweet prop days when he was a star. How quick Sarah can throw a kid under the bus.

    Maybe her daddy's building a brand-new house for the honeymoon couple.
    This time, however, he'll have to get building permits from the city.
    Anyways, no biggie. Just ask a couple of his pals over on a weekend, provide some cold kegs, nails, some boards, and, voila, a castle fit for his Princess and her Prince Charmless.

    Bit OT-Can you say "Running scared shitlis" Why do you think the GOP can't decide who they want as AG. Holder or Lynch.

    My guess is he's looking for more money for doing his lame show......bluff

    America I regret to announce that mama won't be running for POTUS again. She regrets not running for 2016 POTUS because she needs to prepare for my wedding. Mama said she'll try again in 2020.

  14. For an astute businessman I find it hard to believe Trump is so stupid as to believe he could be elected. Or even voted on to the ticket. Or elected to any public office for that matter. You'd think he'd be aware the only P.R. he's going to get will be negative.

    I think it's more likely he is following the Palin model and using this as an unaccountable cash cow.

    You form a PAC. Then a SuperPac. Then you can gather all the money you want, don't have to disclose your donors and pretty much spend it as you like.

    I think Trump considers this a way to get free money.

    Hahahahahahahahaha and...ha!

  16. That excerpt from the 2011 Correspondents Dinner is even more astounding when you realise that Obama and his crew were at that point making the decision to go after Bin Laden in Abbotabad, THAT night, as he was cutting Trump's throat on stage. Now, that's class and cool...

    Democrats' support is softening for Hillary Clinton, their party's presumed 2016 presidential front-runner, with many favoring an independent review of her personal email use when she was secretary of state.

    Support for Clinton's candidacy has dropped about 15 percentage points since mid-February among Democrats, with as few as 45 percent saying they would support her in the last week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll. Support from Democrats likely to vote in the party nominating contests has dropped only slightly less, to a low in the mid-50s over the same period.

    Even Democrats who said they were not personally swayed one way or another by the email flap said that Clinton could fare worse because of it, if and when she launches her presidential campaign, a separate Reuters/Ipsos poll showed.

    The polling showed that nearly half of Democratic respondents - 46 percent - agreed there should be an independent review of all of Clinton's emails to ensure she turned over everything that is work-related.

    There was also sizable support among Democrats for the Republican-controlled congressional committee's effort to require Clinton to testify about the emails. Forty-one percent said they backed its efforts to force Clinton's testimony.
