From the Washington Post:
Donald Trump says he won’t run for president in 2012
Surprise, surprise. Well, maybe not for me. Looks like the sideshow is over, at least for now. “After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the presidency,” Trump announced in a statement on Monday. Of course, being Donald Trump, he continued: “I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and, ultimately, the general election.”
I know that the only time I ever decide not to run for president is when I would win.
It was good while it lasted, though. I never really considered The Donald to be anything other than a megalomaniac fattening at the trough of the media, but I did enjoy his self-centered non-conformist style. If only all politicians would at least be honest about their love for themselves.
See you later, Donald! I guess we just have to wait until your next self promotion opportunity?
