Ladies and gentleman…the new Ross Perot? Only with better hair, more charisma and worldwide fame?
Real estate mogul and reality show star Donald Trump is mulling a presidential bid and says he’d be willing to spend $600 million of his own money to make it happen.
“I have much more than that,” Trump, a Republican, told ABC News’ Ashleigh Banfield in an interview that aired today on “Good Morning America.” “That’s one of the nice things. I mean, part of the beauty of me is that I’m very rich. So if I need $600 million, I can put $600 million myself. That’s a huge advantage. I must tell you, that’s a huge advantage over the other candidates.”
So the idea here is that Trump is a Republican and he’s saying he would run as one in the primaries. And if he doesn’t win the nomination, he would consider an independent run.
Excuse me…what? How could The Donald be so dumb?
If he loses the Republican nod, he’s done. And he has to compete against all the other Republican nominees. Why even do that? Go independent, avoid the primary mess and attack everybody and make them all unelectable. How he doesn’t see this is baffling.
Either way, if he really does decide to run the presidential race will turn into a three ring circus of epic proportions with Trump and Palin being the show ponies. Honestly, I think this benefits Obama more than hurts him because on one hand you have the serious candidate and on the other you have the party that can’t seem to get their s**t together and find a leader.
