Trump plays peek-a-boo with Gingrich, endorses Romney

What a card that Trump is.

First he says he’s running for president, then indicates he’s going to endorse Gingrich and … surprise!

Trump loves Romney and endorsed him for president. Oh, that sneaky comb-over disaster The Donald. What’s his game? I know it’s publicity, but I’m talking about this latest installment of “As The Trump Turns.”

“Donald Trump formally endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Thursday, describing the former Massachusetts governor as "tough" and "smart" and the best pick in the GOP primary. It is a real honor and privilege to endorse Mitt Romney," Trump said in brief remarks. "Mitt is tough, he's smart, he's sharp. He's not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country we all love."

Romney said in response: "There are some things that you just can't imagine in your life. This is one of them," adding that it means a "great deal" to have the billionaire's support.”


Excuse me for a moment! Romney can’t imagine getting the support of a billionaire??? Who could possible buy that bull shit story? It’s a 10 on the gag meter.


“The endorsement follows a bizarre period of time in which several major news outlets -- including the New York Times and Associated Press -- had initially reported that Trump had been planning to endorse Newt Gingrich. The former House Speaker had been one of only two candidates to agree appearing at a debate the "Apprentice" host had planned, but which never came to pass. Romney declined attendance.”


As a matter of fact, Romney and wife don’t look too comfortable getting The Donald’s endorsement. After all, Romney declined to attend the debate Trump tried to set up last year.


“It really wouldn't be surprising if Donald Trump endorses Mitt Romney, because they both like firing people, and they both made millions doing it,"

Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, said on msnbc.

"Donald Trump is such a cartoon character, no matter who he chooses, it's like Bugs Bunny endorsing ... It's really kind of a non-news event."

It's reflective of the media whirlwind to have surrounded Trump's game of footsie with Republican politics over the past year.

One of the most intensely covered media events of 2011 came when former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin went out for pizza with Trump in Manhattan during a stop on her bus tour of the Northeast, a journey meant to stoke speculation about her own presidential aspirations. When Romney visited Trump, he snuck in and out of the billionaire's headquarters without being captured by staked-out cameras.”
