Trump is a giant cartoon. I don't think he's actually trying to win. So what the hell is he up to?

2. He may be attampting to dodge some type of criminal charge?

With his taxes or something else? No better place to be protected than the Oval Office.

4. Thank you! This denial that Donald Trump really, truly wants to be president is absurd.

Dude thinks of himself as a master of the universe, of course he wants to run the country.

5. He is trying to win. He may not have a plan for how to run the country, but he has a plan

on how to win the election. His ego needs to win.

7. Some have said it is a conspiracy, that he is secretly helping the Clintons in some kind

of behind the scenes deal...I don't believe that, however. Just seems too kooky for me.

8. Helping Hillary win.

They're long-time friends. Trump does NOT want to be president...that means real work. He does not want to work. He has never worked a day in his life, and President'n is way beneath his imagined pay grade.

10. Trump is the LAST guy to sacrifice himself for someone else

In his world, running and not winning makes you a LOSER--like McCain and Romney.

13. No, Trump is a salesman looking to close a deal.

Maybe he gets a cabinet position for himself and/or his entire twisted family.

Trump's shame stops at his bank account ledger. He will say or do anything if it means he makes money and can promote himself in order to make even more money.

11. at this point, whether he's trying to win or not, plenty of other people will try to make him win

and many of those people are very powerful and used to having considerable influence in government through the Republican party. it bums them out and pisses them off if he shits the bed, so they're going to do whatever they can to get a win for him whether he wants the job or not.

hell, if he came right out and said he didn't want to be president now, they'd probably leave a severed horse head in his bed or something. even if he doesn't want the gig, he'd damn well better act like he does or there will be consequences -- small warning stuff at first, and then they'd start with the big hits. you don't go this far just to drop out, the power brokers won't allow it. doubtless some of this came up in the very special meeting he just had with the party bosses.

12. Maybe he is tired of the same things we are and his way of

getting rid of it is to make a mockery of it. And IMO he is succeeding.

as STUPID as he thinks they are.

15. Napoleon could be called a cartoon. Just not a giant one. Trump is a giant asshole, not a cartoon.

He's more like a caricature of himself come to life, ... maybe the Alzheimer's is to blame.

What do you get when a billionaire egomaniac begins to slip into dementia?
A candidate for President.

Trump 2016. Make the White House forgetful again!
