Its going on too long on and Meredith is just letting him talk and score his little points.

Frankly I can see my relatives falling in love with this guy - he has everything they like. Snappy one liner answers, braggadocio, bully boy attitude, etc.

1. He's getting free air time because the owners of the news networks want to distract us all.
If they could get us all to vote for another corporate stooge into the White House, then that plays to their interests, but it won't do a damn for our working class interests, which are being beaten down hard.

3. So we can have a good laugh? The guy is whack and insufferable and the majority
of people will not take him seriously.

4. He is an empty suit
His answer, "I will be the best President", why? Because I just will".

This guy is a cheater, he has had several bankrupcies yet the Teabaggers fall all over him.

When Meridith asked him what he would do with the budget deal, he said, "I would get them in a room to get a budget". Meridith said, "President Obama has done that several times". He says, "Well he is not a good leader"! WTF....

Donald Trump thinks that he would be a King instead of the 3rd branch of government. He even had the nerve to say that because he is a deal maker he could get things done because he is a business man.

Sorry this is racism and they just keep attacking with this bullshit.

5. The Show Must Go On
the presidential campaigns are big business to the corporate media, that's why there will never be campaign funding reform, they're making too much money.

10. If only someone would have tweeted the directions to Trump Tower
to the Bronx cobra when it was on the loose. It asked for directions. It was going to do the world a favor.

*sigh*

"Donald Trump is thinking about running for president?! Don't worry, I'll handle this. Where is Trump Tower exactly?"

12. I think he's getting the airtime because like many "news stories", they're getting paid.

16. Do you have any fucking idea how much of a goldmine a Trump run would be?
The MSM wants him to run so bad that they are creating the narrative, possibly even trying to convince him to run.
