    Say, isn’t this starting to resemble a certain reality-game show on television? Or would I be fired for pointing that out? Last night, reports surfaced that casino and real-estate tycoon Donald Trump would endorse Newt Gingrich in Nevada today, just two days before the binding caucuses. This morning, both CNN and ABC say that Trump will now endorse … Mitt Romney: Mitt Romney will receive Donald Trump’s presidential endorsement Thursday, sources with knowledge of the endorsement told CNN.

    Trump Is Still Not Ruling Out a Run at the White House By Peter Gorenstein | Daily Ticker – 17 hours ago Donald Trump is still not ruling out a run for the White House in 2012. The outspoken critic of President Obama may decide to throw his hat back in the ring, after toying with the idea earlier this year, he tells The Daily Ticker in the accompanying interview. This time though, he'd look to run as a third-party candidate, rather than as a Republican. "I will tell you if the wrong candidate is chosen and if the economy...

    The only thing quicker than Donald Trump’s maybe-run as the GOP presidential candidate will be the time spent wondering why he bowed out... Political insiders [said] The Donald’s biggest obstacle was not how serious he might actually be, but how to attract the talent needed for a serious run. “For him to be taken seriously he probably has to come up with somebody with some credibility,” said one long-time Republican strategist. “I don’t think he can run this thing with his internal Trump organization. Not that those people may not be capable, but to be taken seriously he’s gonna have...

    “That is very good,” Cain said this afternoon of Trump’s exit from the political stage. “…I’m very proud that I have never held public office because most of the people in Washington, D.C., they have held public office.”… “I was never threatened or concerned about Donald Trump in the first place, to be perfectly honest, because bullying, being a bully is not a leadership strategy, not if you want to lead the United States of America,” Cain told a group of Iowa reporters this afternoon. “And so I was not surprised he is not running.”

    Does this mean that Donald Trump’s media tour was nothing more than a self-serving publicity stunt? Perish the thought: Donald Trump announced Monday that he will not run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Despite months of speculation and a brief pop in the polls, Trump said in a statement that he was “not ready to leave the private sector.” Nothing proved that more than his oxygen-sucking clown act in pandering to conspiracy theorists. Did anyone seriously think that Trump was serious about running for the nomination? Hardest hit — Charles Krauthammer?

    Donald Trump’s support among Republicans has collapsed in the wake of President Obama’s release of his long form birth certificate, according to a new survey by the Public Policy Polling. PPP, which in April gave Trump sole possession of first place among Republican voters, now has him back in the pack with the support of just just eight percent, tied with Ron Paul. According to the new poll, which was performed May 5-8, Mike Huckabee now leads among potential GOP candidates with 19 percent, narrowly ahead of Mitt Romney, who has 18 percent. Newt Gingrich is at 13 percent, Sarah...

    Business Insider ^ | 05/10/2011 | Joe Weisenthal
    We're thinking the odds that Trump never runs for the GOP nomination are fading. A new poll of Republican primary voters from PPP found that his support plunged from 26% last time to just 8% this time. That puts him tied with Ron Paul. Perhaps "winning" the birth certificate fight has undermined his only point of relevance in this race, although his negatives have always been sky high, with a huge block of voters always saying they'd never support him. Trump is one point ahead of Michelle Bachmann.

    American commandos eliminated Osama bin Laden this week. Did they also liquidate Donald Trump's presidential run? A week ago, Trump was riding high. President Obama had been forced to go on television to confirm for the world what most of it already knew: that he had been born in the United States. True to his nature, Trump claimed credit -- and immediately embarked on a tour of New Hampshire in what seemed like a victory lap, as he talked incessantly about running for president. But there's an old axiom in Washington: The more time the media -- and everyone else...

    “As President Obama continued his nine-minute address in front of just one main network camera, the photographers were held outside the room by staff and asked to remain completely silent. Once Obama was off the air, we were escorted in front of that teleprompter and the President then re-enacted the walk-out and first 30 seconds of the statement for us.”

    The greatest president in my lifetime was Ronald Reagan. I proudly voted for him twice. In 1980 and 1984, as just about 99% of those who voted for him, I was unaware he had been a Democrat (as I had been). I was also unaware Reagan had been a union president, or as Governor of California, he signed the Therapeutic Abortion Act of 1967 and had contributed to Democrats. But so what? By today’s standards, the SIX time union president Reagan would be a Democrat union “thug.” But who cares? None of this would have made the slightest bit of...
  • Medical Deferment Allowed Trump to Avoid Vietnam War

    After taking credit for President Obama releasing his long-form birth certificate to quell doubts about his citizenship, real estate developer Donald Trump may have to release his own records to address questions about his past. Donald Trump, who claimed this week that a high draft number kept him from fighting for his country in Vietnam, actually received a series of student deferments while in college and a medical deferment after graduation, according to Selective Service records. The Smoking Gun first reported the revelation after obtaining the paperwork from the National Archives and Records Administration. But it's still not known what...
  • The Trump Rule: His History of Sexism

    Fresh off the allegations that Donald Trump's various "birther" and affirmative action conspiracies about President Obama were racist, now the spotlight is being shone on Trump's long history of sexist, if not downright sleazy, comments about women. In a column for the Washington Post, Anna Holmes brings up the "Trump Rule," as described by beauty queen Carrie Prejean, in her book about the Miss USA pageant. According to Prejean, the Miss USA pageant had a requirement that contestants parade in front of pageant owner Donald Trump so he could separate out those he found sexually appealing from those he did...

    Someone please explain. Name me one conservative principle he stands for and has stood for through the years. I get that people like seeing him slap around Obama and push the birther issue. But why make excuses for the fact that he's moderate to liberal? He's given lots of money to Democrats, called George Bush evil and said Nancy Pelosi should have impeached him. He's advocated for universal healthcare and supported a wealth tax. He's trashed Paul Ryan's budget and thinks slapping a tariff on China will solve our entitlement problems. The guy is not a conservative. Why are so...

    Today on the view, Whoopi Goldberg criticized the “birther” conspiracy theory (and Donald Trump continually bringing it up) as racist: “I’m getting tired to trying not to find things slightly racist. It is very difficult, on a daily basis, to see this stuff and not say, you know, this is what it is. I have been raised to think, ‘Well, maybe that’s not what they mean. Let me figure it out.’ But, being black, when you say, ‘Y’know, this is racist,’ 9,000 people say, ‘Oh, you’re just playing the race card.’ Well, you know, I’m playing the damn card now.”

    Real estate mogul and TV personality Donald Trump says he’ll announce whether he is running for president after the May 22 final installment of his hit show "The Celebrity Apprentice," but in the meantime, it’s all about location, location, location – and that location for Trump is Iowa. "Iowa is very, very important to me," he tells The Des Moines Register. "I love what Iowa represents. It represents to me a work ethic that a lot of other places don't have. And I think I'll do well in Iowa because, you know, my ethic is very much like the people...
