I’ve said it before. I’ve said it again. And now I’ll say it yet again. I’m sickened by the attention the GOP candidates–and therefore, the media–have been giving reality show clown, Donald Trump. And, today, the clownfest side show continued, with Trump’s endorsement of Mitt Romney, after he was first going to endorse Newt Gingrich. Talk about sloppy seconds. I’m more interested in which florescent orange Oompa Loompa hair-coloring he endorses for next Halloween. I don’t care that it’s just one rich kid born rich who’s had as many wives as Newt Gingrich endorsing another rich kid born rich. It’s just that I don’t care what a mega-ringmaster thinks, period. To me, he will always be what he is: a shamelessly self-promoting ringmaster. If you think otherwise, you ain’t been payin’ attention. And that’s not to mention his shameless pandering to the Islamic world by orchestrating the Miss USA win by a Hezbollah Muslim, Rima Fakih, along with a sponsorship of his pageants by his good friend, Jew-hater and Palestinian pogrom supporter, Farouk Shami.
I’m not sure why anyone on earth would care who Donald Trump endorses. I care about his endorsement as much as I care about the endorsement of Snooki, J-Wow, the Situation, and whoever the doofus-esque, desperately fame-seeking “The Bachelor” is this season. And I care about his endorsement as much as I care about the Kartrashians’ endorsement or the endorsement of the cast of “Celebrity Wife Swap,” but less than I care about the little people’s endorsement and that of the men who catch catfish with their hands and the “American Pickers.” At least, they are doing something semi-worthy. . . far more worthy than business fraud Trump. Hearing Romney thank “Mr. Trump,” as if he’s a contestant on “The Apprentice,” rather than a candidate for President of the United States, is embarrassing.
In fact, Trump doesn’t even care about who Trump endorses. He cares about the attention that Trump’s endorsement will get for Trump. That’s it. He probably picked lots to decide whom to endorse. He just doesn’t care. He simply wants attention . . . attention that has dissipated of late on him until his sideshow endorsement gag today. He needs to get those ratings back up for the new season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” because, after all, watching Arsenio Hall fight with Clay Aiken ain’t exactly the stuff that beats out watching paint dry or going to the dentist.
Frankly, anyone who cares a whit about who Donald Trump endorses–anyone who uses that endorsement to affect their vote–should be legally barred from a voting both . . . forever.
And one more thing: I view whomever Trump endorses akin to Trump endorsing a barber shop or hairstylist. Don’t go there. Or, rather, run the opposite way.
In any event, I will know America is winning the culture–and common sense wars when we finally say to Donald Trump, you’re fired.
