    Trump blows his own horn a lot, but it's not as if he's a self-made man.

    Don't you think the 400 MILLION dollars AND the network of contacts he inherited from his father might have had a little something to do with his financial success?

    Plus, Trump single-handedly DESTROYED the USFL . . . And I liked the USFL.

    He sounds like nothing but trouble to me . . . El Destructo . . . In other words, a typical Republican politician.

    He'll get the latino vote with...
    "The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems," Trump said. "It's true. And these aren't the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime; they're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

    Why do we care anymore. This is not national news, and barely local news. The guy is just wants a platform to tell people he is still valid, that what he says and what he does still matters. He is a consummate car salesman, and will continue to use whatever tools he has in front of him to further his own name brand.

    He does not care about the Presidency of the USA at all. He only cares about himself and his name. He has no grasp of international politics nor even local politics. He is so removed from basic understandings of what main street people want or need. Donald Trump needs to go away and fade like his namesake in Atlantic City, hot in the 80s a VH-1 tribute in the 2000s and a sad afterthought in 2015.

    Please, Donald. leave, just leave. Stop wasting my time.

    Aggrevates the left? Sure he's got an ego the size of the Trump tower but the left was celebrating yesterday because Trump is the most disliked candidate in recent history (favorable minus unfavorable). Him on a debate stage with Jeb Bush and others will make a joke of the whole thing. Jon Stewart's going to have a fun last 6 weeks at the Daily Show.

    Obama came in without a birth certificate, was a failure of a community organizer, wouldn't explain how he funded his way through college, and forfeited his lawyers license.

    Why are people hitting on Donald Trump who has a proven record of success?

    I heard that Roseann Barr and Andrew Dice Clay are also joining the race.

    Keep on "Rockin' in the free world" Trump!, wait did you listen to the lyrics?
    This just keeps getting funnier, a true plutocrat to lead the GOP's a living mascot.

    The GOP presidential bid has turned into, year long try outs for Faux News Opinuendo Hour.

    What a contradiction! Trump promises to be the greatest job creating President ever and Obama has been the greatest welfare dependency President ever and Hillary will challenge Obama for that title! What a choice!

    Trump made a lot of sense today. I especially appreciate his candor.

    And I LOVE the way he aggravates the lefties.

    Alas, he doesn't understand that you cannot just tax imports from China and Mexico in an effort to bring jobs back. Too many politicians are already in the Chamber's pocket to allow that. Trump's success is his downfall. Barking orders and taking action don't work in DC. If you think Obama can overreach, imagine what Donald would do?

    Sadly, candor disqualifies a candidate.

    But we swallow whole the promises of free cheese from the other candidates. [sigh]

    Wow:

    * someone who doesn't have to be politically correct
    * a person who knows how to budget
    * speaks his mind without trying to deceive the citizens
    * puts America first, rather than scoring political points.

    This is sooooo refreshing.

    Finally. I've waited so long for a real 'out there' entertainer candidate on the GOP side, and we got no less than Don himself! This should elevate the discussion no end.
