Donald Trump & The All-Important Reality Show Ringmaster GOP Endorsement

By Debbie Schlussel

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.


Why Would You Care Whom Either of These Clowns Endorses?

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.

Who cares?

In Egypt, soccer fans can’t get along.

Its just a matter of time before the Muslim Brotherhood diverts their bloodlust elsewhere.

Will a Donald Trump endorsement stop it? Only if you’re a moron.

Yup, America’s culture wars are not serious – its not even reality TV! 9/11 is so yesterday.

I am totally disconnected of reality tv and tv in general,so I ve never watched the shows you alluded to,I ve heard of some but I try to stay away from the tube.
Anyway I guess Trump’s endorsement matters to the candidates because they want to convey an image of being hip and cool,I am like you Debbie Trump s endorsement means nothing to me,but both Romney and Gingrich wanted it,Trump is all talk and in practice is highly liberal,self promoting and so that s that.
Unfortunatly that s where our culture is at the moment,ill informed people voting bc they heard an emotional crappy speech…if I had it my way people wouldn t get to vote unless they had a savings account or some assets to protect from the thieves in DC,but the way it is now,people vote for whoever promises the most “freebies”,but that s another story,well I hope Romney loses for the nomination.

Count me as another person who doesn’t care what Donald Trump thinks.

JeffE on February 3, 2012 at 12:30 am

If we had real Conservatives backing Romney this would be the kiss of Judas for him. Neither him or Trump are real conservatives, not even close. They’re more like Democrat lite. Unfortunatelly none of Mittens backers see this.
I stated before, with either Mitt or Obama at the helm the oil rich Arabs can’t lose, since, as usual, they’re the ones running this election, on both sides.
As TINSC says, “just follow the money”.

Well, I hope good Conservatives and traditional Americans are watching closely what the hell is going on in the GOP in 2012. In a year where it SHOULD be conventional wisdom (CW) that we are kicking that crypto-commies ass all over the nation, the trajectory of the the Republican side has all the steadiness and seriousness of a demolition clown car. Something stinks.

Obama’s policies and clandestine yet canny pre-dictator stances are steadily eroding INDIVIDUAL liberties. And yet the GOP has made it look like a cake-walk for MaObama to grab 4 more years.

And it’s all he needs. 4 more years and we are done. He will be swift and he will not care what he implements IF re-elected.

Look at the long and coquettish dance Congress is doing with Eric Holder and Fast and Furious. How is it that they can’t throw his damn ass in jail? I don’t think Issa is gonna do jack. He’s been “acting busy” for over a year now. Holder and Obama are gonna get away with it with at least 2 Americans dead and over 200 Mexicans dead. All so they could erode OUR 2nd amendment rights.

And we get this Donald Trump freak-show. Get your red noses ready. This is ridiculous!!!

Debbie, The Donald does a lot of mishegas (craziness) but the good
news is his Ivanka is now a shomer Shabbes Jew (a Jew who observes the Sabbath). B’H (blessed be G-d) she and her billionaire chasan (groom) should move to Hevron (a town near Jerusalem), have 15 kids and together they should liberate the Cave of the Patriarchs (an ancient Jewish burial site in Hevron which Abraham purchased in perpetuity thousands of years ago, as documented in Genesis).

Ron Paul would have been the perfect guy for Trump to endorse. In any case, I’ll believe this if I see Trump supporting Romney against Obama.

Infidel on February 3, 2012 at 2:50 am

It is a zero endorsing a zero. I have no doubt that Barack Obama will win now. Donald Trump has no clout. If getting others to swallow your losses is good business, Mr. Trump is indeed an entrepreneur.

Worry01 on February 3, 2012 at 3:05 am

This is just so typical of what is wrong with this country. Too many people care about what “the Donald” thinks. I certainly don’t. I’m in your camp, Debbie.

Road Warrior on February 3, 2012 at 7:03 am

I guess that an epoch-making political event would be a televised discussion between the two political sages, Trump & Oprah.

Little Al on February 3, 2012 at 8:23 am

I’m waiting for you to tell us how you really feel….ha

Mike C on February 3, 2012 at 9:10 am

I want to know who Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton endorse.

bobguzzardi on February 3, 2012 at 9:18 am

I think Trump’s hair is an alien parasite that is controlling what’s left of his brain.

Tanstaafl on February 3, 2012 at 10:04 am

So that’s other good endorsement willard. The other ones being juan mcamnesty and rino cristy. Debbie you are right as usual. The donald is nothing more than a rich side show phony. Why anyone takes him or his tv show seriously is beyond me. People forget that this is the same man who fixed it so that a hezbo-bimbo won Miss USA. Certain “conservatives” who give this clown the time of day on their talk shows need to be called out and asked why. I have news for you donald. You just better hope and pray that if the guy that you just endorsed becomes the nominee (God forbid) that he will be ready for bho. Because we can’t survive another 4 years of the obamanation.

As dorky as Trump’s comb-over looks I wish I could make mine like that. Then I wouldn’t always have to wear a hat to prevent a sunburn when I go outdoors.

As for endorsing someone I’d be more interested in who Homer Simpson or Bevis & Butthead endorse.

CornCoLeo on February 3, 2012 at 10:59 am

Hey Ms. Schlussel & Fellow Readers? I have a question. Do y’all think that if Mittens wins, he’ll take The Donlad’s “tupe” with him as a good luck charm?

I keep replaying that Cheech & Chong scene back & forth in my head where Cheech is the Arab talking about his “hairpiece” after getting a hair transplant & what he’s going to to with it now that he doesn’t need it.

Here it is:

Why would I care who anyone endorses, be they Trump, the NY Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the priests, rabbis, etc.? I have never like endorsements.

I have my own brain, and I just hope other voters use theirs.

Jonathan E. Grant on February 3, 2012 at 1:24 pm

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when all this “celebrity endorsement” business began, but most people point to 1960 when Frank Sinatra released this goofy parody of his hit from the previous year:


Of course, by 1968, he had switched allegiances. The question is, does anybody out there actually decide who to vote for based on whomever their favorite television personality, movie actor or rock star says they should vote for? If so, I’d like to get a glimpse of the person who would openly admit to that. “Well, Snookie, Lady Gaga and Andy Dick are all voting for such and such, so I guess I will to.” As Jerry Seinfeld would say, “Who are these people?”

Trump might have done some good for the country when he questioned Obama’s phony birth certificate. He supposedly sent an investigative team to Hawaii to determine the truth of Obama’s birth. Then what happened. Nothing. What did his team find. We don’t know. It was a great publicity stunt even creating momentum for Trump’s nomination as a presidential candidate. But in the end the whole episode was as phony as the birth certificate that Trump was supposed to have investigated.

Jerry on February 3, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Such a narcissist. Wouldn’t dare endorse a candidate when he might be wrong, so he waits until his chances of being on the winning side are in his favor. Come on, Rick Santorum, you’re still the best choice out there!

RaymondofCanada on February 3, 2012 at 3:08 pm

Rick Santorum has my vote and I cannot understand why the media has marginalized him so. Seems like a man with values who is genuine, honest, and trustworthy. Oh that’s right, it’s politics.

CJ on February 3, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Trump has been sidelined! Mission accomplished. No more talk about his running third party. His endorsement hurts Romney.

Poncho on February 3, 2012 at 6:49 pm

Seeds of Peace should organize a Lunar Space Colony
