With All Seriousness, I Must Address Donald Trump’s Presidential Candidacy

TrumpI feel this is a time that I must be absolutely serious, because for far too long many progressives such as myself have called the current crop of Republican presidential candidates “clowns” who are part of a “circus.” And for a while, that made sense. After all, when you have a group comprised of the likes of Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush and Rick Santorum (just to name a few), you feel confident in the fact that you can call that group of people “clowns” performing in a “circus” – because that’s exactly what the Republican presidential race has been.


Or at least, that’s what we all thought it had been.

But that’s all changed. Never again can people like myself so carelessly and thoughtlessly describe what has now become a legitimate field of GOP candidates. From this day on, those words carry with them a completely different importance and emphasis. The truth is, all this time people like myself have been underestimating the GOP field, we clearly had no idea what we were talking about. Until now, we were all just children throwing around words while failing to grasp the meanings.

However, that’s all changed. Because now we have a true circus as the king of all clowns, one of the biggest self-serving jackasses of them all, Donald Trump, is expected to announce he’s seeking a whole lot of attention to feed his massive ego he’s running for president.

So, with that being said, as I try to compose myself, I feel I must give this pending announcement the serious and immediate attention it so rightfully deserves.

Alright.

Deep breath…

Must keep it together…

This is the time to be absolutely serious – I’m not kidding.

Mr. Trump deserves all of our respect.

He’s a serious candidate, after all.

Alright, I think I’m ready.

Here. We. Go…

    A whole piece just to write “haha” over Trump running for president? Is there no other topic of interest than mocking Republican hopefuls that don’t have an ice cream bar’s chance in hell?

      I’m not sure what’s more sad, the fact your wrote this or that you actually believe it.

      • Flat Banana

        The man behind the nonsense speaks, your sentence should read: “the fact you* wrote…”

      • OMGface

      Well, with that level of intelligent, informed discourse, it’s no wonder Allen Clifton doesn’t pop out more often.

  • OMGface

    After my head stopped exploding at, ‘yep, this time, he’s doing it,”…..I was stunned to feel the boor/cartoon is bringing something I suddenly felt we are all starved for, however unwittingly: stump speeches/comments which are not canned, scripted, Photoshopped. You don’t know what new norm has become the default, and at what cost…until its polar opposite presents and provides contrast.

    Nice thing… He doesn’t kiss anybody’s a$$.
