Where ever there is a stage, a camera, and a crowd, you can expect to find reality tv mogul and presidential candidate tease Donald Trump. Trump, with his on again, off again, “maybe I will, maybe I won’t” president gambit, mostly disappeared from the media after no one wanted to show up to the presidential debate he would be hosting.
Now, since the primary is over and the Republican National Convention is planning its agenda, he wants back in.
He wants a speaker slot. And he’s asking his twitter folk to make a push. According to BuzzFeed, “Donald Trump is beginning to campaign for a big speaking slot at the Republican National Convention in Tampa this year, asking his Twitter followers to ‘imagine him speaking at the RNC Convention’ today. One of Trump’s advisors told the Daily Caller that Trump’s ‘massive popularity is just one of the many reasons he is being sought as a keynote speaker at the Tampa RNC Convention.’”
Considering all of the work that Texas Congressman Ron Paul has put into getting a slot, including taking over numerous state conventions, you would think Trump would try a little more finesse to get a gig. But maybe he can just offer them a bunch of money in exchange for a speaking role.
After all, that seems to be his gig.
