Now Trump?

Are the Republicans going to come up with any candidate who isn't a reality TV personality?

 Here's "FOXNation's" take on Trump's CPAC appearance:

If CPAC is a primary for self-confidence, Donald Trump won hands down.
The real-estate mogul with a genius for self-promotion gave the most-acclaimed - and most colorful - speech at the conservative gathering this afternoon, from the moment he took the stage to the song "Money, Money, Money."

By the way, that "Continue Reading," that's not a link. You don't have to click on that text to get the rest of the article. That's apparently just a reminder to FOXNation readers to continue sounding out all the letters to make words.  Look:

With no visible sense of irony, he slammed libertarian Ron Paul as a losing hopeful who can't capture the brass ring and got booed by some for it, said our current president came 'out of nowhere," and quoted a business magazine's story about what a terrific entrepreneur he himself is.

See? "Continue Reading" is just sitting there like they thought that they needed something to fill in the empty space between paragraphs.


But anyway. . . .

Yet he was by far the best-received speaker and the audience lapped up his act, as he read some of a prepared speech and used his hands to punctuate his words.

Ooh, him use hands! Hands make words easier to understand.  Me lap up act!

Here's more from POLITICO:


CPAC to Trump: You're hired!

(honestly, who still writes headlines like that?)

"It's a wonderful forum and an honor to be here," he said. "While I'm not at this time a candidate for the presidency, I will decide by June whether or not I will become one and I will tell you the reason that I'm thinking about it is the US has become a whipping post for the rest of the world. The world is treating us without respect, they are not treating us properly."

Hmm, what could the hair-troll's suggestion be for getting a little respect back for the US?
Hmm,  I wonder. . .

". . . if I run and if I win this country will be respected again":

Thank You! I'll be here all week! 

You know, it's hard to decide what is the most respect-garnering aspect of the Trump legacy. Maybe the multiple bankruptcies? The public pissing match with Rosie O'Donnell? The second career as a poor man's Jeff Probst? The menagerie of classy drag-queen-resembling women?


Donald Trump didn't have as much success in his personal life as he did in his business life. 


Either way, it all adds up to one word: Presidential
