Trump's f-bomb tirade

(CNN) – Real estate mogul Donald Trump served up a profanity laced speech to Republican supporters in Las Vegas Thursday night, attacking American policies and continuing his flirtation with a run for the GOP presidential nomination.

At a reception hosted by two Republican women's groups at the Treasure Island Casino, Trump acknowledged he is not the typical candidate for president, and may lose in 2012, but is still serious about a bid for the White House.

"I'll think about it," Trump said when an audience member asked him to run. "You probably won't be disappointed."

Trump, who has said he will decide by June whether to run for president, also criticized the price of oil in his remarks, one of the mantras adopted by the reality TV star of late.

"They (OPEC) want to go in and raise the price of oil because we have nobody in Washington that sits back and says you're not going to raise that f-ing price, you understand me?" Trump said.

He also boiled down the war in Iraq for the conservative crowd.

"We build a school, we build a road. They blow up the road. They blow up the school. We build another school, we build another road, they blow them up," Trump said. "We build again, in the meantime we can't get a f-king school built in Brooklyn."

Trump, who was in the Silver State to attend the wedding of billionaire casino owner Steve Wynn, has spent the last two months questioning the president's birth place, an issue largely put to rest Wednesday when President Obama released the long-form version of the certificate.

Nevada may have an influential role in shaping the race for the GOP presidential nomination, with its caucus scheduled third in the primary and caucus calendar.

    Trump was right. Our media is over protective of Pres. Obama. They treat him like a small child unable to take care of himself. Pres. Obama blinks but that does not stop our media from spinning it.

    This very strange and repugnant man does not stand even a long-shot chance of getting on the ballot. All his posturing and posing is nothing more than an attempt at free publicity for another one of his bankrupt schemes, his TV show.

    Donald Trump, Really? This man is....I am speechless. Who would entertain having him as the nations president? So what he has money and knows how to make it. So do pimps, mobsters and drug dealers. Does that make him capable of running the country....NOT.

    If Trump were a smarter person, I'd think this was all a big prank to make fools of Republicans by getting them to destroy their credibility by embracing an obviously ignorant, no-class, multiple-bankruptcy clown as a serious contendor. But, since Trump is well-established as a narcissist, I don't think he's trying to punk them.

    But that's okay – the end result is the same, because Republicans are looking pretty hilarious now because of the figureheads they've been gathering around. Palin, Glenn Beck, and now this complete joke. They lose more legitimacy every day. That's good, though – whatever's bad for the Republican party is good for America. You need look no further than the results the deeply-red Southern states have gotten for their decades of electing Republicans to know their policies don't work.

    So what if he said f***?? This is not 1950! Some people get pissed off at the fact that there is no regulation on these ABSURD gas prices!! It's all so true! Trump would be a good candidate because he can't be corrupted. What else do we have to lose?? Not jobs, houses, or money because George W took that off everybody's hands. Obviously Obama can't do anything. He's had long enough. He made all these promises when running for office, but has done NOTHING!! I have never liked Republican's or Donald Trump, but why not give him a shot? He's had some very good points and ideas so far! Something has to be done before there ends up being another civil war in this country. Only this time it won't just be the south rising up, it will be all 50 states!!

    Put these two old toads (Wynn & Trump) and their money on a remote island, with no help from anybody, and see how well they do by themselves. . . . That is the true test of what makes real survivors and leaders.

    Big F ing surprise! And Trump is going have control of the oil market? As a business tycoon he SHOULD understand that the market on oil is driven up by the futures speculators not the F ing white house.

    After the wedding Trump trampted back to his penthouse suite, kicked off his clown shoes, put away his wig, and wallowed around in a sty filled w/ fresh hay and $100 bills.

    Well, he is right about the schools being blown up and rebuilt, roads built and blown up....but that's about it. He might have money, but not an ounce of class or intelligence. He has money. Nothing else.

    Why wait, Mr. Trump. Are you planning to grow a pair between now and June? Why don't you back up all your big mouth talk and jump in the mix right now....today! Otherwise, go sit down and shut up, you moron.

    I don't believe his bid for the White House is to help the American people, but only to help himself. Think about it... this man strongly opposes raises taxes on the rich. I wonder why?

    If he were to become president, he work hard to fleece the rest of America for own best interests.

    Personally, I think Trump is the PERFECT candidate for the republican party. He embodies all the traits of the republican party and what it has become.

    He's never going to get the Republican nomination by giving speeches with the f-bomb. I agree with him about the price of oil, but we just can't go to OPEC and scream at them not to raise the prices. He is just looking for publicity.

    Donald Chump is lame excuse for "news" – he is an inarticulate media hog oblivious to his own ridiculous appearance and he is purposefully filling the gap for the GOP congressional do nothings who are still serious contenders for a run but who remain afraid to announce. Donald loves the press coverage, especially as his show tanks due to the idiots he decided to showcase. He is a joke and would never survive the release of his financials..

    Pure Entertainment!!! "ORANGE JULIUS" is a disgrace to everything he has been, is, and could ever be. The filthy "F-Bombs" are a marvelous icing on the walking septic tank, which is Donald Trump.

    "Run, Orange Julius, Run!!!"
