It’s not who is in as possible GOP presidential candidates in 2012 —- it’s who is out.
Donald Trump, the buffoon tycoon, fired himself Monday from running for president.
The self-proclaimed economic wizard figured more Americans were more concerned about who will win on “Celebrity Apprentice” than it is if they’ll have a job next week.
Let’s see…. a chance to be leader of the free world, or have a hit network TV show.
That’s a no-brainer. Especially if you’re The Donald.
What a mook.
It’s easier to criticize than it is to lead.
Just ask Sarah Palin.
It’s harder to achieve power in this country when you have to work for it, lump.
Donald Trump: Hair today, gone tomorrow.
The hairpiece as mouthpiece got that thing on his head handed to him a few weeks ago by President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where the prez gets to poke fun at himself, his opponents, his own party and the media.
Obama took The Donald down with humor, still the best defense against an offense that is all style and no substance.
Trump was at the dinner, and cut-away shots of his reaction to the jokes at his expense showed one obvious fact: He has no sense of humor about himself.
Obama also landed a major blow to the blowhard when he released the long form of his birth certificate, suggesting that there are more important things to do than listen to the inane rantings of a “carnival barker.”
And there’s none better at being the ringmaster of a media circus than The Donald.
When making his decision public on Monday that he wasn’t going to be a candidate, Trump, not surprisingly, said he would’ve won the Republican nomination for president and then the general election in 2012.
Right. No delusion of grandeur there. Just delusional. Heck, if The Donald would play college football this year he’d win the Heisman. And he’d surely win an Oscar for playing himself in his film biography. Around the same time he would be accepting the Nobel Prize on behalf of the private sector.
Obama also stuck a fork in this ham by getting bin Laden.
Believe it or not, it took that to get the media to stop taking Trump seriously.
Truth of the matter is, Trump is a big mouth bass in the pond of the business world, but he soon discovered what everybody has really known all along, he’s just a minnow going up against the bully pulpit where the guy with the teleprompter reels his opponents in hook, line and sinker.
And there was no sea change available to the lump.
The Donald just got in water that was over his head is all.
To his surprise, he couldn’t walk on it.
