Do you feel a little embarrassed when you watch Donald Trump?
By Elspeth Reeve
A little ashamed? I do. And I think that’s why so many critics, mostly haters and losers, argue that Donald Trump should be ignored, that he is a fake presidential candidate who cares about nothing but his own vanity, that there are fringe candidates with better credentials who can add more to our political discourse. That’s probably all true, but Trump still deserves to be showered with the attention he craves. Because Donald Trump is an artist. And his masterpiece is the way he brilliantly skewers the American political system and exposes just how easy it is to make your way through a presidential campaign on bullshit alone.
THIS IS YOOGE!

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed my story and obtained documentation to that effect.
“I am officially running for president of the United States and we are going to make our country great again,” proclaimed Donald Trump in the lobby of Trump Tower. And with that, Trump ended his decades long flirtation with running for president by, according to him, officially entering the race to become the Republican party’s 2016 nominee.
Twitter widely mocked the meandering speech. Some conservatives heralded Trump’s announcement with great fanfare, others received the news with skepticism and derision. Pundits, prognosticators and journalists were mixed. In one analysis, Halperin noted Trump’s ability to draw crowds as an asset.
Trumps "ability to draw crowds" as long as he pays them to show up? LOL! What a dupe Halperin is. Trump is as phony as the dead animal he wears on his head that passes as a toupee! We LOVE THE DONALD! He has turned the GOP field of candidates into comedy gold! And here I thought John Bush! would be the funniest candidate!
