Trump won't speak at Republican convention

Source: UPI

NEW YORK, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Real estate mogul and television star Donald Trump said Friday he wouldn't address the Republican National Convention, this month in Tampa, Fla.

He will, however, be doing something at the convention but declined to elaborate.

Using Twitter to contact the New York Daily News, Trump said, "I was asked to speak at the RNC but said no, because I will be doing something much bigger -- just watch!"

4. "Something much bigger"?

Donald, nothing is bigger than your ego. So I have to assume that this much bigger event involves filling your own head with helium and drifting over Tampa towing a banner that says "TRUMP > ROMNEY."

7. Shoot himself out of a cannon?

Sword swallowing?
Knife throwing?

I dunno. It's a circus. There are a lot of things he could do that don't require speaking. Maybe he's selling cotton candy!!! Ooooooh...I love cotton candy.

10. That may be the first thing to go right for the Republicans in a week.

Now, it they can just limit Mitt from giving a brief sppech to the convention (like I accept your nomination to be president of the United States), they'll probably feel like they're really on a roll.

12. Maybe he will be an anchor for Comedy Central Convention coverage

I think that the Daily Show and The Colbert Report could find room for him to be a guest anchor for their convention coverage

20. Or checking birth certificates at the entrance?

Trump will ensure no GOPers are allowed inside without the correct documentation.

25. Is that a promise?

Not that I care, I won't be watching the Rand-aplooza. I just can't stand the breathless publicity of whatever chunks of manure drop out his mouth.

26. That's right. He is going to polish delegates shoes.

Trust me, it's a very big and important job.

It was the only thing they could figure out that wouldn't hurt them.

Well, they may be crazy, but they're not dumb... Well, most of them...
