Trumped


"I have made Fox and CNN so much money." Donald Trump

I think the end of the Trump circus may be quickly approaching. Not because he couldn't get the GOP nod if he wanted to, obviously he could. But the reality is that this has all been theater for him and I think he might be freaked out by the possibility of actually being president. Might not be as good as his present gig and there's all that learning about people's names one has to do.

He grabbed the tiger by the tail and now he doesn't know what to do with it.

The signs are obvious, the announcement the other day that he would drop out if his poll numbers dropped, why would a frontrunner, a man with such a sizable lead, be so scared of footsteps if he really wanted the position?

Trump has been refreshing, not because I agree with his take on the issues, although I occasionally do, but because it is so rare for a politician to say what he actually thinks and believes. But there is such a carney feel to the guy, he is all blarney and bullshit and seems to think that this is all a big farcical television show.
 "I believe in polls. How many elections do you see where the polls were wrong? Not that many. OK, you see them but not that many. If I were doing poorly, if I saw myself going down, if you would stop calling me 'cause you no longer have any interest in Trump because 'he has no chance,' I'd go back to my business. I have no problem with that."
He told the New York Times in an interview published Monday there would be "a major collapse of the race, and there'd be a major collapse of television ratings" if he dropped out. He added that, "It would become a depression in television."
He said his appearances on TV generate huge numbers of viewers, and if he wasn't in the race it would become so "boring" that he "wouldn't even be watching it probably, and neither would anybody else."
Today he said that he's not going anywhere, that he is in it to win it, but I say the end is near. First chance he gets, he is gone.
