Donald Trump To Be Named 'Statesman Of The Year' By GOP Group Before Convention
You know, just like George Washington was always claiming that John Adams was a British operative. And remember how Thomas Jefferson never shut up about how Monticello was the finest, most luxurious plantation in the entire world. Then hosted a shitty game show.
When in the course of human events, you are indeed fired!
Sarasota GOP chairman Joe Gruters called Trump a "wise, skillful and respectful political leader," pointing to public polling last year that showed Trump narrowly trailing President Barack Obama in a hypothetical match-up.
That's quite a generous description considering that Trump has never led anything political. Nor has he ever been respectful of anyone. Nor wise or skillful. Saying that Trump is a skillful political leader makes as much sense as saying that he is a skillful football coach. There's no indication that he would be any good at either.
So, since he's going to be in Florida anyway, is Trump going to be at the GOP convention?

Trump to Have ‘Major Role’ at GOP Convention, Aide Claims
“While I am not at liberty to disclose the specifics of Mr. Trump’s time at the RNC, I can say he will be playing a major role and was happy to honor Gov. Romney’s request to participate in convention events in Tampa,” Trump Executive Vice President and Special Counsel Michael Cohen told ABC News.
The RNC has been rolling out its list of speakers and VIP guests at the convention this week, but Trump’s name and any official role have not been mentioned. Cohen said Trump’s role at the convention will be detailed in a matter of days.
Of course Trump's name has not come up. There's no way in hell they want him speaking at the convention. The primaries are over, Romney has to start pretending to be a reasonable capable leader, not a drooling, right-wing fucktard.
I still want to see more birth certificates!
Donald Trump 'Declines' Big Speech Offer At RNC: Report
According to Newsmax's source, convention-goers can expect a big “surprise” from the billionaire, who will already be in Florida accepting his "Statesman of the Year" award from the Republican Party of Sarasota County.
Yes, it will be a "surprise" if security doesn't stop him at the door.
By the way, who is Newsmax's "source" for this?
“While I am not at liberty to disclose the specifics of Mr. Trump’s time at the RNC, I can say he will be playing a major role and was happy to honor Gov. Romney’s request to participate in convention events in Tampa,” he said.
So, if I'm getting this right, Trump has enough time to show up at the convention with a big "surprise" and play a major role, but not enough time to give a speech, because you know, business?
