Rump Trump Dumps "Campaign"
Egomaniac plutocrat and birth certificate expert Donald "Rump" Trump announced today he's abandoning his "campaign" for the Rethug presidential nomination -- even though he hadn't officially entered the race . After making himself a laughing stock by playing the birfer game, then getting humiliated at the White House Correspondents Dinner, then cratering in the polls, it seems the final straw to pulling the plug was NBC's letting him know they'd be doing his reality tee-vee show, "Celebrity Apprentice," without him if he ran.
Pity. Having Trump's massive ego in the race would have made a nice statement about what the Rethuglican Party was all about: selfishness, racism, stupidity and a blustering lack of awareness.
