Astonishing isn't it?
The psycho trump is actually being discussed semi-seriously as a candidate for President. This insane meglomaniacal freak actually makes Michelle Bachman look like a heavyweight.

Is it possible that this 4 times married mob connected stupid fuck could actually be nominated as the puke presidential candidate?

Never say never.

1. it really is. But it was also astonishing to me that Palin was ever on the ticket,
and that she continues to be such an idol for many people.

:shrug:

Didn't Trump go bankrupt at least once?

4. He went bankrupt and I believe that he still doesn't own all of "his properties".
I recently read that he gets paid to be the front man by real estate developers and they brand their buildings "Trump".

2. I've always wondered what teabaggers think about Trump...


They'll have to make up their minds soon... Will they buy his "smarty millionaire" narrative or will they, for once, recognize the scam?

IMO Trump is on par with Palin and Bachmann - very dangerous to this country but very, very hard to take seriously for anyone who thinks for himself.

13. You gotta admit, though, it takes real Manly-Man Business Talent ((c), Trump Enterprises)...
...to go bankrupt with a @#$%^&* CASINO!!! No doubt this was a shrewd multi-dimensional-chess-type business move (a move so staggeringly brilliant that we mortals can only stand in awe of his wonderfulness) on his part.

He's a good promoter, though. So was the guy who made a living selling snake oil door-to-door.

14. i just wish he would go the hell away. i mean, that apprentice show....
how many times have i thought it was finally going to get cancelled. so they just make it more sleazy trailer trash bs. uggh. but you are right... he is a good promoter. and i guess it takes that kind of ego he has to pull off some of the shit he does. 'polishing a turd' so to speak.

18. I've never see the show. I've seen enough on the promos to know that I wouldn't like it.
I think most normal people cringe a bit when they hear "You're fired!" -- and I truly think most small businesspeople don't care to have to utter it, either. But I get the feeling that The Donald almost enjoys it. Maybe soft-sore sadism is what sells amongst the teabaggers these days.

I keep hearing from the right-wingers that "the government needs to be run like a business." Outside of the fact that I don't agree with that sentiment, surely they're not thinking that the government needs to be run like one of Donald Trump's businesses!

20. I admire you for never having seen it.

I once did - with GERMAN dubbing (fittingly: SIE SIND GEFEUERT!!!!) and I wish I hadn't.

It's one of those cultural artifacts that sends me the message that I really don't belong.

10. Which boggles my mind.
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 08:04 AM by Democracyinkind
Conceptually, isn't Trump the very thing they hate? Wouldn't he be clasified as a "moocher" in Ayn Rand's terminology?

Not that obvious cognitive dissonances have ever posed a problem for teabaggers, but this still baffles me. Is Trump generally considered a "self made man"? I've never thought of him as such, but then again, I haven't lived in the US for ages.

3. my 18 month old loves to turn the tv on. she turned it on and there was trump
talking about how he is the best and would be the best because he is the best. yech. luckily she turned the channel... a blue screen is certainly preferable to that windbag. just remember fred thompson. he was the greatest and everyone wanted him to run. as soon as he did, his numbers went through the floor and he was a joke. i see the same happening with windbag

9. Maybe the R's plan is to keep shoving "prospective" nominees
out into the public light, and whoever gets the least negative public reaction becomes the de facto nominee.

7. I really wish he would shutup
I see people I like, even liberals, watching his stupid show (the Apprentice, I think it's called). I really wish he would shut the hell up. I really wish I didn't have to overhear his moronic, annoying voice every time I go near a TV.

The man is just sick. Ugh.

11. As soon as he has to file a financial disclosure form . . .
Mr. Trump will suddenly remember that he has to wash his hair next year (or some similarly lame excuse), and he couldn't possibly find time to run for president. Bet on it.

12. Very interesting comment.


Any reasonable degree of disclosure would defeat the "self made" narrative, wouldn't it?

16. No, not at all.
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 08:23 AM by GoCubsGo
Let's see: A) Mob-connected stupid fuck who bankrupted a casino.
B) Corporate Mob-connected stupid fuck couldn't find oil in Texas, and bankrupted 3 businesses.

Not only "Never say never", but also, "Been there, done that".

That being said, I think this is just a publicity stunt for his TV show.
