Trump Fulfills My Prediction

As recently as in this post on May 3 I reiterated my prediction that Donald Trump would not run for the GOP nomination for president.

As of Monday evening, I was proven correct.

Despite his claim that his business career is too important to him, I think Trump was shaken by the rough treatment he received by Wonderboy and the event's host at the White House correspondents' dinner a few weeks ago.

It's no secret that Trump is used to owning the microphone and dictating the nature of his public persona. So being roundly lampooned by talk show hosts and the press must have really stung.

And that was only the beginning. He hadn't even officially announced yet.

Trump probably realizes that his puffed up claims of business genius would evaporate upon close scrutiny. The multiple corporate bankruptcies, the multiple marriages and cheating with the wife-to-be while still married. All things that would become sore points and possible deal-breakers among voters.

As at least one pundit declared, Wonderboy and his handlers must be cursing their bad fortune that Trump didn't actually decide to run.

Dear c, You were right! And so quickly, too.

Now I am hoping you are right about Newt destructing. We dont need another 70 year old goof ball.
