Trump Picks Up Crucial Dennis Rodman Endorsement

I thought it was huge during the 2012 election when Gary Busey endorsed Newt Gingrich for president and when Dave Mustaine came out in favor of Rick Santorum. But Donald Trump has picked up the greatest endorsement ever, from NBA hall of famer Dennis Rodman.

If Trump does get elected, that would make two world leaders that Dennis Rodman fawns over — Trump and Kim Jung-Un of North Korea. This seems appropriate. The two of them have a lot in common, most obviously their penchant for vastly overstating their accomplishments while everyone around them tries not to roll their eyes lest Dear Leader has them put to death. Trump, of course, is happy about the endorsement:

It goes without saying that if Trump had played in the NBA, he would have been the greatest and classiest basketball player in the history of the world. And his shoes would have been gold-plated (not actually gold, mind you, just gold-plated to give the illusion of great value, just like Trump).

    I wonder what level of inebriation Dennis Rodman was at when he tweeted his support for Donald Trump.

  • Phillip Hallam-Baker

    It is actually the most significant endorsement of the campaign to date by far.

    Having one politician endorse another actually means nothing at all. The only reason politicians do the endorsements is to get media attention.

    Every day Trump can keep himself at the front of the parade is a win for him. The experts have been consistently and predictably wrong about him. Far from sinking his campaign, the attack on McCain boosted him – just as I said it would.

    The people making the choice here are not normal people. They are unthinking, bigoted, racist louts who really don’t think the government or the office of president actually matters except as a trophy to be won by ‘their’ tribe. The Presidential election is no more important to them than a NASCAR race or an NBA playoff.

    Unless the GOP can get its act together in the next month, Trump will win the nomination. And if they do he will likely run as a third party candidate and sink them anyway.

    Laugh it up. A poll taken after Trump stuck his foot in a potful of crap over his remarks about John McCarn, he still leads the Rethuglican pack.

    I can’t wait for him to win all the primaries (including the Democrat party primary) and also the election. It will be nice to have a winner in the White House again. He’ll probably win all the Senate and House seats, too.

  • dingojack

    The point is: early Primary polls aren’t necessarily good indications of Presidential candidates or of Presidential victors. I wouldn’t get too concerned — yet.

    North Korean State media aren’t like to report the Donster calling Koreans puppy-eating monsters who like beating gnomes with zucchini (or whatever) during a stump-speech in Frogspit, North Carolina (or where ever) anyway. So no furious foreign reaction and no downside for his campaign!

    I think the real question is who will endorse the Trumpster next. Ted Nugent? Kid Rock? Joe Perry? Tom Selleck? Janine Turner? Angie Harmon? Patricia Heaton?

    Back in the 1980s Mondale and Gore secretly conspired to sell the Soviets a VAX 11/780 . The KGB promised Mondale victory in 1984 in return, but failed to deliver. Nonetheless – the machine got an interet connection and began communicating with the world under the name Kremvax

    Unfortunately things did not stop there. CERN, or Communist European Revolutionary Nucleophycists, soon got involved in the internet. In fact … and you should be terrified to learn this – it was CERN which created the HTML standard and the first web browsers upon which the World Wide Web is founded! Explains a great deal, doesn’t it?

    @16. eoraptor : “Phillip Hallam-Baker@1 I think you forgot treasonous.”

    Huh? Michael Heath was #1, Phillip Hallam-Baker was #2 and Im not quite sure where the “treasonous ” is meant to go in either post – please could you elaborate?

    @15. caseloweraz : Bozo the clown?

    @12. dingojack : “The point is: early Primary polls aren’t necessarily good indications of Presidential candidates or of Presidential victors. I wouldn’t get too concerned — yet.”

    Agreed. Given the adage that “a week is a long time in politics”, 2016 – November (even November this year!) is a political near-eternity away still. The endless US election makes me glad our Aussie campaign’s which seem more than long enough are just a few months.* At this stage, it’s really not worth worrying too much and I fully expect the Trump phenomenon to be as transient as the Herman Cain(e) & Michelle Bachman(n) manias that were in full if ugly blooms back at the start of their last one.

    Sad thing is for all the sound and fury, unless I’m very much mistaken (which can happen), the outcome of another Bush vs Clinton contest seems pretty inevitable.

    * Is there any mood or proposals in the US of A to have limits ontehlength of political campaigns? Think we’ve got that here -limited campaign lengths taht is. Might not be abad idea and enable alot of money tobe put tobetetr uses

    Stevo – try: “The people making the choice here are not normal people. They are unthinking, treasonous, bigoted, racist louts who really don’t think the government or the office of president actually matters except as a trophy to be won by ‘their’ tribe. The Presidential election is no more important to them than a NASCAR race or an NBA playoff.” [‘treasonous’ added]

    Although I doubt they’ve waged war or supported those waging war with the US (unless Phillip Hallam-Baker knows something I am not privy to…)

    llewelly @19, yes, most non-Americans are well aware that Englishman Tim Berners Lee invented the World Wide Web while at CERN in Switzerland. That’s the underlying irony of my point @10. I confess that I have enjoyed watching ‘exceptional’ Americans’ heads ‘splode when they’re told that it was not an American invention.

    Why be concerned at all? If Trump gets the nomination, the Democrat wins at least 44 states. Trump is unelectable.

    Kenn: “Why be concerned at all? If Trump gets the nomination, the Democrat wins at least 44 states. Trump is unelectable.”

    I think you overestimate Trump’s chances.

    Way overestimate.
