It’s bad enough that we have to endure some untold number of campaign ads in the two weeks to go before Election Day. It’s bad enough that we’ve had to sludge through three presidential debates filled with rehearsed answers and more one-liners than substance.
Now we have more abomination to look forward to:
Donald Trump, who once claimed viability as a presidential candidate, promises a “bombshell” announcement Wednesday, Oct. 24, that will rock the electorate prior to the Nov. 6 election. In fact, his announcement promises to be so cataclysmic as to virtually hand the presidency over to Mitt Romney.
Alas. If only we could get rid of this utter gasbag in a hairpiece wrapped around an ego the size of Jupiter.
Of course, the most likely announcement “The Donald” could make is that he has uncovered conclusive evidence that President Barack Obama is not an “American” by birth — a fact that a more-than-you-think number of people hold dear as an article of faith.
But I digress.
Speculation on the announcement’s content is rampant, and indeed my guess is that anyone with Internet access is laughing at all the comments coursing through the Twitterverse ripping the piss out of this blowhard’s actions. Except, of course, anyone associated with the Romney campaign, who can’t get away from this guy fast enough.
But I digress again.
What do I think Mr. Trump might announce? I have a few theories:
OK, probably not.
Wake me when this is over.
