It must be a slow news week for Donald Trump and he just isn’t getting enough attention, so he’s once again talking about running for president. But of course, it’s purely out of his heartfelt concern for the country, not out of any possible selfish motive whatsoever.
Donald Trump has spent more than $1 million exploring a run for president in 2016.
Michael Cohen, executive vice president and special counsel to Trump, told the New York Post, “The electoral research was commissioned. We did not spend $1 million on this research for it just to sit on my bookshelf.”
Trump insists he’s not really interested in running for president, but people are urging him to run.
“Everybody tells me, ‘Please run for president. Please run for president.’ I would be much happier if a great and competent person came along,” Trump reportedly said last week at the Oakland County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner in Novi, Mich.
Really, Donald? Everybody tells you that? You mean all those people on your payroll or who are sucking up to you tell you you’d make a great president? How surprising. I’m sure as hell not going to tell you to run for president. I’m going to tell you that you’re a ridiculous buffoon and you really ought to shut the hell up and go away.
