Chapter 6 - Donald Trump
Do we really even have to bother with this one?
Donald Trump is not going to run for President.
Oh, sure, he may form an exploratory committee, he may hire a campaign manager, some staffers, maybe even run some ads. But he'll be out of the race before the first primary. Because he loves talking about how he "would have won easily" had he decided to enter the race and he's not going to actually run so that the three people who still take him seriously can see how ridiculous that claim is.
And yes, he's shut down "The Apprentice" in order to pursue this pipe dream, but I gotta think that's probably because someone told him that the writing was on the wall, that people were finally sick of this stupid stupid program and he didn't want the embarrassment of being cancelled, so this way he can say that he walked away of his own volition in order to spend more time pretending to run for President.
But even if he did run, who the hell would vote for this guy? His only supposed qualification is that he's supposed to be this great businessman and how many times has this twit had to declare bankruptcy? Three? Four? I can't keep track.
I don't understand Donald Trump at all. Here's a guy who said to himself "I'm going to be remembered, undeservedly, as a great businessman, a titan of industry. What kind of bullshit legacy is that? When I'm gone, I want to be remembered as the buffoonish blowhard who threw in his lot with Orly Taitz and Jenny McCarthy and spouted absurdly stupid conspiracy theories at any microphone I could find.
I want to be looked back upon as a man with absolutely no dignity or sense of shame. A man who would boast about what his investigators were supposedly unearthing in Hawaii and then never revealed what that supposedly was because it was obviously nothing and got angry when asked about it. When people think of the name Donald Trump I want them to think of the pathetic clown with the most childish approach to foreign policy since. . . um. . . ever, I guess.
But anyway, whether he runs or not, Donald Trump will never ever ever ever be president.
Ted Cruz is Going on Obamacare as Wife Takes Goldman Sachs Leave
With his wife Heidi taking leave to help her husband campaign for president, the Cruzes are leaving the $20,000 per year coverage she enjoyed at Goldman. "We will presumably go on the exchange and sign up for health care and we're in the process of transitioning over to do that," Cruz told the Des Moines Register's Jennifer Jacobs.
