Dinner, V.P Talk, Super PACS — My, Donald Trump Is Busy

Reality TV Mogul Donald Trump’s gambit for a speaking slot at the Republican National Convention appears to have just been the icebreaker. Now that the businessman and former presidential player has started talking, it’s hard to get him to stop.

Lucky for likely nominee Mitt Romney, Trump is putting his money where his mouth is.

First, Trump is offering to be Romney’s “Clooney,” allowing those who send Romney donations a chance to win a dinner with The Donald. President Barack Obama recently did the same fundraising tactic, offering a meal with actor George Clooney, and Trump and Romney’s staff must believe he has the same cachet and popularity.

Trump will also be hosting a Las Vegas fundraiser for Romney, and is considering pulling together his own super PAC, too. His goal is to show American Crossroads how it should be done, after accusing them of making Obama look too good in one of their commercials. “‘I thought it was one of the worst commercials, in terms of what they were trying to do, that Ive ever seen,’ said Trump in April. ‘They are making Obama look great.’

That’s a lot of talk, and a lot of potential money being thrown around. Could it have something to do with Trump believing that he’s “the best choice” for a Romney running mate?

That’s a joke, right? Right?

Romney and Trump - a match made in heaven. What a wonderful combination. Two super rich arrogant white guys representing the US.

While I do not believe Romney is fool enough to have Trump as his running mate with all the antipathy that Trump creates wherever he goes, he certainly likes the colour of his money. Romney with his dog story and Trump with his sons' shooting skills and Scottish golf courses would turn most decent people off. Besides Trump can't shake hands with people, I'm told. Some sort of phobia? Might catch something like humanity or get his hands dirty.
Just goes to prove that anyone can run for president in the US provided he/she has the money.

Just when I thought he'd thought better of pulling stunts to bash Obama....

Donald Trump made is money the old fashioned way. He inherited it. He was borm with a silver foot in his mouth. Regarding his business acumen and leadershio skills frankly he could not lead a starving man to a fast food restaurant. He will never run for office because then he would have to release his financial records and people would see how over hyped his wealth and influence really are. He is such a large gasbag that they should mount a camera to his gut and use him for aerial shots at stadiums, It is time to dump Trump.

Dinner with the Donald. I'll pass. Shouldn't he be hard at work on his comb over and planning another season of his Washed Up and Forgotten Celebrity B-Listers on a Good Day and They Haven't Seen that Many Good Days since the 1970's Apprentice. He has almost perfected that angry perpetually constipated look he gets when he is judging one of his contestants. Personally, I preferred the TV comercial when he jumped into the trash dumpster to recover his credit card which is probably over the limit. The man has declared bankruptcy more times than Sly of the Family Stone who I hear is living in a cardboard box. Trump is a winner like Pee Wee Herman is a body builder.

"Donald Trump Is Busy"....

And..... Robin Marty - your problem is???? You don't like "busy people" maybe?

Might not be such a "joke" if he IS picked for VP.

I rather relish the prospect of SUCCESSFUL people running the country....

And for the benefit of the moaners that are bleating about Trump's bankruptcies - get over it. Bankruptcy laws exist - and if you don't make use of them when necessary - who's the fool?

That's why Trump is still worth more than $2 billion.....

Just another example of a bored 1%er. This one just happens to love being in front of the camera where as others enjoy golfing around the world, sailing in a yacht, or as in w and cheney's case, torturing and killing people. They do it because they can.
