Donald Trump Says Public Scorn Greater Than He Expected

What the heck did Donald Trump think, that his “poll numbers” which he referred to at every opportunity, would stay high after:

1) The POTUS revealed his long form birth certificate?

2) After the smack down that President  Obama and Seth Meyer gave him at the WHCD?

3) After the POTUS’ spectacular announcement about capturing/killing Osama bin Laden?

NASHUA, New Hampshire (Reuters) – Real estate magnate Donald Trump suggested Wednesday it’s not much fun flirting with the idea of running for president in the face of relentless attacks and ridicule.

“Nobody said it was going to be easy, but I had no idea I would get hammered in the way I’ve been hammered the past few weeks,” Trump said in Nashua, New Hampshire.

The billionaire host of NBC-TV’s “Celebrity Apprentice” has hinted for months that he will run for the 2012 Republican nomination for a chance to take on President Barack Obama.

But Trump has slipped badly in surveys taken since Obama released his birth certificate confirming he was born in the United States.

The so-called “birther” issue had been a major issue of Trump’s nascent campaign.

Public Policy Polling, which in April showed Trump leading the Republican field with 26 percent support, this week showed him with just 8 percent support.

Still, 700 businesspeople turned out for a sold-out Nashua Chamber of Commerce event. Trump delivered a speech heavy on his post-birther themes: high gas prices, Obama’s healthcare reforms, and U.S. dealings with China and OPEC.

“If Obama gets re-elected, I think your taxes are going to go through the roof,” Trump warned.

Still no word on whether a White House bid is for real, especially now that The Donald’s political star is dimming.

“I’m thinking about running,” he said.

Trump referred to the April 30 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, during which Obama and comedian Seth Myers mocked the tycoon mercilessly while Trump sat in the audience, stone-faced.

Even Republicans have been taking shots, he noted.

“I haven’t done anything, in all fairness,” he said. “I haven’t even announced whether or not I’m running.”

  1. Trump knows that he wouldn’t last very long in the primaries. That’s why he decided to talk all this birther and education shit, which none of it worked.

    What goes around, comes around!


  2. “If Obama gets re-elected, I think your taxes are going to go through the roof,” Trump warned.
    Of course, he was speaking to some very well-heeled individuals, and damn right, their taxes SHOULD be raised!


    1. As well they should go up! This country needs more revenue, not give-aways to be paid for on the backs of the middle-class and the poor.
