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.'

"At the same time, Trump vowed to be 'the greatest jobs president that God ever created' -- the opposite, he implied, of President Obama, whom Trump called 'a bad negotiator.'

"Trump also addressed his own wealth and success, citing them as proof of his ability as a leader.

"'I don't need anybody's money ... I'm really rich,' he said. A team of accountants has calculated his total net worth to be more than $8 billion, he added, with assets of more than $9.2 billion.

"'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.'"

Oh that's it, we need more corporate control over our lives! Why didn't we think of it before? Let the really wealthy people take charge, instead of the losers. Because, y'know, rich people have never had any power or influence in government before. What a pile of Dippity Doo.

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

Aqua Net.

(Just kidding)

Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few (more...)
