Donald Trump Will Not Run For President

The Don has announced the lure of the White House is not great enough to make him give up his biggest passion just yet (but watch out 2016). Read more »

As you may have heard, because he’s said it a bunch of times, were Donald Trump to be elected President of the United States, his first order of business would be to “deal” with this China situation. Specifically, Trump has said he’d tell the Chinese that “If you don’t stop manipulating your currency, we’re going to put a 25 percent tax on your products that come into the US.” The Don has made the case that he’s uniquely qualified to run this country because unlike our pussy diplomats (who “went to school to learn how to be nice”), he’d “deliver to the message” to to China in away that would get them to take the threat seriously. Today during a town hall, Trump workshopped some lines and so far here’s what he’s got: “Listen you motherfuckers, we’re going to tax you 25 percent.” Read more »

“I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully, getting rid of this issue,” Trump told reporters, his helicopter sitting behind him. He said he still wants to see the birth certificate, released while he was en route to New Hampshire, but now wants to talk about weightier issues such as oil prices. [ABC]

We’d like to think so. Read more »

Earlier this evening, I had the opportunity to get the unvarnished thoughts of a former Deutsche Bank employee familiar with Trump from this $640-million deal gone awry on the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago. Trump was sued to collect on a $40-million personal guarantee that was part of the deal. Suffice it to say, the banker held a dim view of the Donald. “[The Chicago deal] was pretty minor given all the other things going on at the time. Real estate developers do default from time to time,” he said. “But this guy has been doing it for 20 years, failing. Remember the Trump Shuttle? That’s why he’ll never run. His finances just won’t hold up to scrutiny. It’s pretty well known in financial circles that this guy is a deadbeat.” [The Atlantic]

Gary Busey Endorses Donald Trump

Unlike the current administration, Busey says, Donald Trump cares about the deficit and will turn our reckless spending around. Not only did The Buse endorse The Don, but he’s announced he’ll campaign for him as well, having already come up with a acronym/slogan/Buseyism: T(aking) R(edirection), U(nderstanding) M(assive) P(ower).

As Donald Trump has stated previously, were he to run for President (and he says he doesn’t want to but might have to because “the world laughs at us and they won’t be laughing at us if I’m president”), the first issued he’d tackle is “this business” with China. The Don says he’s uniquely to do so because 1) he “buys a lot of products from China” and 2) he knows how to “knows how to say things,” unlike our diplomats. Trump has said he’d put a 25 percent tax on China’s products that come into the United States and this morning on the Today show, he laid out the vicious rhetoric he’d use to make sure everyone knew to take him seriously.

“I would tell China very nicely, ‘Fellows, you’re my friend, I like you very much — and I have made a lot of money with China.’ I would say ‘We are going to put a 25% tax on all your products coming in’ and that’s going to do a number of things. Number one, as soon as they believe it will happen they will behave so nicely because it would destroy their economy.”

As for anyone who doesn’t think Donald is deadly serious about maybe running, he’d like you to know that 1) “This is very serious- I always take things seriously but never like this” and 2) You can go fuck yourself, just like Bill Cosby. Read more »
