Which Of These Things Is Not Like The Others?

"It's My Honor And Privilege To Endorse Mitt Romney"

BREAKING: Trump To Make A Presidential Endorsement

The media hounds are breathlessly awaiting an official endorsement from The Donald.

First indications were that the (for some strange reason) coveted endorsement would go to former Speaker Newt Gingrich. Now, it seems that Mitt Romney may be the recipient of The Donald's political blessing.

Only the King of Atlantic City knows.

Either way, we'll bring you the announcement when it happens.

"Holy Shit! What Happened?"

That is quite a fall:

Donald Trump has had one of the quickest rises and falls in the history of Presidential politics. Last month we found him leading the Republican field with 26%. In the space of just four weeks he's dropped all the way down to 8%, putting him in a tie for fifth place with Ron Paul.

Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney are at the top of the GOP race with 19% and 18% respectively. Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin are further back at 13% and 12%, followed by Trump and Paul at 8%, Michele Bachmann at 7%, and Tim Pawlenty at 5%.

As Trump got more and more exposure over the last month Republicans didn't just decide they weren't interested in having him as their nominee- they also decided they flat don't like him. Only 34% of GOP voters now have a favorable opinion of Trump to 53% who view him in a negative light.

Trump really made hay out of the 'birther' issue and as the resonance of that has declined, so has his standing. In February we found that 51% of Republican primary voters thought Barack Obama was not born in the United States. Now with the release of his birth certificate only 34% of GOP partisans fall into that camp, and Trump's only in fifth place with that now smaller group of the electorate at 9%.

"I'm Not Racist."

"Well, you know, when it comes to racism and racists, I am the least racist person there is. And I think most people who know me would tell you that. I am the least racist, I’ve had great relationships. In fact, Randal Pinkett won, as you know, on The Apprentice a little while ago, a couple of years ago. And Randall’s been outstanding in every way. So I am the least racist person." -Donald Trump this morning on Fox & Friends.

Shorter Trump: "I'm not racist, just ask my black friend."

"Gay Marriage Is Like Those Long Putters."

Metaphor of the week:

During a lengthy conversation in his 61st-floor suite at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, amid the Trump-branded room service menus and bottles of Trump Ice water, Mr. Trump provided ample fodder for supporters and skeptics — waxing about foreign policy and his TV ratings, displaying a detailed understanding of the political landscape and a curious insensitivity toward potential voters.

At one point, he compared his opposition to the legalization of same-sex marriage to his reluctance to use a new kind of putter.

“It’s like in golf,” he said. “A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive,” said Mr. Trump, a Republican. “It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”

He said that, should he run, he would offer himself as a “conservative with a big heart.”
Really Donald? 'These really long putters'?

"We Can't Get A F**king School In Brooklyn." (UPDATED)

Classic Trump:

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) - Real estate mogul Donald Trump may, or may not run for president. But Thursday in Las Vegas, he was sure sounding like a someone who's ready to jump into the race with both feet. He did it with enough explicitives to call it a Rated R speech.

Once while discussing Iraq.

"We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can't get a f***ing school in Brooklyn," Trump says.

To the audiences [sic] approval, while talking oil.

"We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you're not going to raise that f****ing [sic] price," he says.

And finally, while speaking about taxing Chinese goods.

"Listen you mother f***ers we're going to tax you 25 percent," Trump says.
