That walking hair flap has announced his candidacy. And typical of all things Trump, his speech was one part lunatic and two parts PT Barnum.

The Christian Science Monitor has the highlights:

"Following a grand entrance via escalator, Mr. Trump introduced his campaign slogan, 'Make America great again,' then launched into an unusual, 40-minute speech about his plans for facing the nation's most hot-button issues.

"Take immigration. 'I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have Mexico pay for that wall,' he told his audience, who filled three floors of the building. 'Mark my words.'

"And, of course, he took on 'the big lie' that is Obamacare and its $5 billion website: 'It's a disaster ... To this day it doesn't work,' Trump said, adding, 'I have so many websites all over the place. I hire people, they do a website, it costs $3.'

"'That's the kind of mindset you need for this country,' Trump said. 'We have the opposite thinking. We have losers ... We have people that are morally corrupt.'"

Lets hope the GOP voters have the sense to remember two of The Donald's favorite words...

Aqua Net.

(Just kidding)
