Trump Does Not Actually Want To 'Be' President, Just Brand It
Donald Trump, The Fragrance, is a thing.
July 20, 2016

Today brought this unbelievable golden gem from The New York Times. Turns out Donald Trump, Jr. had a negotiation session with someone from the Kasich campaign, in an attempt to stop Ted Cruz before the Indiana primary, Emphasis added:

Donald Jr. wanted to make him an offer nonetheless: Did he [Kasich] have any interest in being the most powerful vice president in history?

When Kasich’s adviser asked how this would be the case, Donald Jr. explained that his father’s vice president would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy.

Then what, the adviser asked, would Trump be in charge of?

“Making America great again” was the casual reply.

As I read that, I thought of Dick Cheney ...and George W. Bush.


And Dick Cheney ...and George H.W. Bush.


And Dick Cheney ...and Ronald Reagan.


Hell, there's a write up of Cheney and Nixon.

Republicans have long had figurehead Presidents. But this time the racist base, rather than a selection committee made up of Dick Cheney, got to pick.

And they picked a narcissist self-promoter who just wants his name on the building again.


Still, it makes you realize why the base doesn't give a rat's butt whether Donald is telling them the truth or not. They know he won't "really" be President.

Wonder who will be President? Neither do I.

Can you help us out?
