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.]
I’ve been running this love fest with presidential candidate Donald Trump for over six weeks with no idea where it’s heading. Now I find I will be able to post a new item every day from now until November without repeating myself. Thank you, Mr. Trump. It’s the nicest thing anybody’s ever done for me.Thank you very, very, very much!
Self-obsessed 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. It turns out that of all the candidates who showed up for the race this year, Donald Trump is the one who takes the contest most seriously:
The New York Times reported Wednesday that multiple Donald Trump advisors say that they tried to prepare the Republican presidential candidate for the first debate Monday night, but Trump lost interest and just started chatting about other topics.
“Mr. Trump’s debate preparation was unconventional,” The Times reported. “Aides have introduced a podium and encouraged him to participate in mock debates, but he has not embraced them, focusing mostly on conversations and discussions with advisers.”
“There were early efforts to run a more standard form of general election debate-prep camp, led by Roger Ailes, the ousted Fox News chief, at Mr. Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, N.J,” they report. “But Mr. Trump found it hard to focus during those meetings, according to multiple people briefed on the process who requested anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.”
When Trump showed obvious disinterest, Ailes responded not by pushing Trump, but “by discussing his own problems, as well as recounting political war stories, according to two people present for the sessions.”
Yeah, man. This guy has it nailed. I can hardly wait for the first time he faces the Joint Chiefs of Staff with a plan for handling a major military crisis. “Hey, can we talk about something else for a while? How about them Cowboys?”
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.
