Trump's Presidential Run Is a Joke

Really. I'm surprised I hadn't realized this before, Donald Trump's presidential campaign is just a ratings gimmick.
It's been done before, way better.
In a synergy move, NBC's news programs have been interviewing Trump endlessly. That they make him look like a buffoon isn't important. It's the publicity that matters. Look for the Trump campaign to end in June when the May ratings sweeps month is over.
Way, way better.
Gracie Allen's presidential campaign in 1940.
Way, way, way better.
Will Rogers ran for President with the Anti-Bunk Party in 1928 and was actually nominated at the Democrat's 1932 convention. FDR beat him for the nomination.

I always thought it was self-evident. After all, in what universe would you want national fiscal policy designed by a guy whose companies have filed for bankruptcy 4 times in 20 years, using bankruptcy law to create cash and evade responsibility for debt?

He is obviously un-electable, so it is just schtick for ego and money.
