Donald Trump punk’d America

Donald Trump has played the American public for the chump. The thought of this blowhard as president of the United States was always — and completely — preposterous. Nonetheless, countless words were written, uttered, blogged and tweeted about the possibility.

That he opted today to make official what everyone knew all along — no way would he be a candidate for America’s highest office; it was all a big publicity stunt for his stupid television show — should make official our shame for giving him so much attention. And, there can only be one penance: Boycott “Celebrity Apprentice” and make America totally free of the Donald.
