Don’t Bump The Trump

Politics-TrumpDropOut

A warning for those who chance to meet a wild Trump coming home late at night, past a graveyard, all alone in a storm: Don’t bump the Trump. [With apologies to Shel Silverstein.]

It’s game on. Self-professed billionaire Donald Trump earlier snatched the campaign torch from the Republican Party by scooping up conservative America’s low-hanging fruit. Full disclosure: it’s something I proclaimed over a year ago could not be done. I was wrong! How wrong? Very wrong. I completely failed to take into account Donald Trump’s commitment to the electoral process:

(CNN) — Donald Trump loves being unpredictable — it’s a valuable card in any good negotiator’s hands, he insists.

But now the presumptive Republican nominee is seemingly joking about the latest political speculation that a victory in November doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll take the oath of office to become president of the United States.

“I’ll let you know how I feel about it after it happens,” Trump told The New York Times in a story published Thursday while flashing what the newspaper described as a “mischievous smile.” The paper said Trump was responding in an interview when presented with the scenario that he may win and decide not to serve.

Of course, the meme at the top of this post is completely misleading. Donald Trump spoke those words last year during the time the primary contest was just getting warmed up. He was saying he would drop out of the primaries if his poll numbers started going south.

As it is, his poll numbers did not go south, and he is now the Republican nominee. And about deciding whether to actually serve if elected, what do you think?

Yeah, it’s game on. We are going to have more fun between now and November. We can be assured Donald Trump will never fail to entertain us.

Continue reading. And may Jesus have mercy on your soul.
