Trump brings celebrity pop culture to the GOP

The only thing 'pop culture' about Trump is a bad unreality TV show.

They're right. Just like how when I go to the bar to pick up some ladies I always make sure to bring along my 4'6", 435-pound friend who stopped showering the day "Boy Meets World" got cancelled and whose head is fully encased in STD warts he got while vacationing on a Haitian fishing boat's text-based-adventures cruise.

As a 4'11", 389-pounder who has a Paas-style dipping device to lower me into a vat of Drakkar Noir, by comparison I'm usually neck-goiter-deep in hot-and-cold running poon.

I'm pleasantly surprised that the comments on TFA are near-unanimous on how this is a stupid idea.

I absolutely agree that this is a stupid idea, but don't discount name recognition and the novelty factor. People laughed when Ahhnold announced he was running for Governor of California too. I could totally see an organized movement of trolls pushing a Trump for President bid just for the lulz.

Trump cannot handle the scrutiny and criticism a serious Presidential campaign would bring on him.  If anyone really gets to him, he just lashes out with bile and personal attacks.  For example, here's what he said about Seth Meyers after he roasted him at that White House Correspondent's Dinner:

"I thought Seth Meyers -- his delivery frankly was not good," Trump says. "He's a stutterer."

This guy would melt down into a pool of incoherent rage in 2 weeks if the full force of what anyone who runs for President goes through fell on him.

Um...are Republicans so clueless as to be unaware that some people are "celebrities" largely due to how mocked and hated they are?

/ yes...yes, they are

Trump isn't particularly good at a lot of things.  Like him or not he is excellent at self promotion.  He has failed miserably at multiple businesses yet he has used that to make his name a very valuable asset.  He doesn't want to be president, he watched Palin use politics to make her name into a multi million dollar brand and figured out he could do it so much better than she did.  Thats all.  Look forward to him 'contemplating' running on 2016 to back out at the last minute, then to repeat in 2020.

It so reminds me of a Justice League episode.


[Luthor has beaten up The Question, who came to his office to kill him, believing that Superman would do it if Luthor became President]

Lex Luthor: [laughing] President? Foolish faceless man. My campaign is a farce. A small part of a much grander scheme. President?

[grabs Question by the throat and slaps him twice]

Lex Luthor: Do you know how much power I'd have to give up to be president?

[throws The Question across the room]

Lex Luthor: That's right, conspiracy buff. I spent $75 million on a fake presidential campaign all just to tick Superman off.


Except Trump is neither smart, nor powerful, nor scary.

The important thing is that he is a pop culture celebrity!

Remember when Republicans mocked pop culture and celebrities.  I guess it's only bad when libtardos do it.

As a Democrat, if Donald Trump is the GOP choice for President, I promise to vote for him.  Really, I promise.  Please select Donald.  He has my vote.  Yessiree bob.  I'd be there voting for him.

Of course, "how he sees it" is in no way related to how any other person on the planet "sees it".

Crazy people are ALWAYS willing to tell you about the aliens that probe them in the wee hours of the night.

And yeah, I'd probably vote in Manson over Trump, too... Hell, I'd give DUbya some serious consideration if he found a way to run a 3rd term, if it was between him and the Donald...

I hear Miley Cyrus brings both youth and pop culture.  As a bonus you could raise money by airing uncensored debates on pay-per-view or cinamax.

He went to U Penn's graduation to give the commencement speech and insulted Asians right out of the gate. Not sure if you have ever seen U Penn's population but has a large population of Asians.

Just another example of how detached from reality the modern conservative has become.  Politics is just a game.  A venue of entertainment.  And I say that not only because of who the author picked here, but the reasons listed.

Trump brings celebrity pop culture to the GOP.

No, he doesn't.

Trump is not afraid to call it like he sees it.

Unless one has an incredibly coherent view of a situation, calling it like 'ya see it', is a detriment to a candidate.

Trump's "kick ass" and "can do" winning attitude is appealing to the Republican base.

Except he doesn't 'do' much, he has never really kicked ass, and that his attitude is popular with anyone showcases a serious issue with the Republican base and is 'not' a good thing.

Trump would not have to waste all his time fundraising.

Yes, he would.  Even Romney did the fund-raising bit.  Just being gloriously wealthy doesn't mean this sort are at all intending to blow their established wealth on the crap shoot that is the 'GOP Primary'.

Trump describes what it will take to run against Hillary Clinton.

Someone with a solid couple of decades of service, a more coherent awareness of governance and system, versus a man who hasn't yet come to terms with the 'hair' situation.

if that's all he's doing, using the suggestion to get free air time & sell his new show then that's all i can ever expect from him.
