Bachmann to have 4th meeting with Donald Trump on Monday in New York

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann will meet with real estate mogul Donald Trump on Monday in New York City, her spokeswoman said Sunday.

The meeting will happen at Trump Tower. It will be the fourth meeting between the Minnesota congresswoman and the reality TV star.

"He called the other day ... and she'd mentioned she was going to be in New York," Bachmann Communications Director Alice Stewart told CNN. "It should last about an hour or so."

Bachmann will also tape a show for NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," Stewart said.

Bachmann and Trump last met October 13 in New York.

Earlier this year Trump announced he would not mount a run for the White House, but only after gaining much attention for flirting with a bid, harshly criticizing President Obama and stoking "birther" theories by calling for the release of the president's birth certificate.

Since then, many GOP candidates have paid visits to Trump.

    This is my version of what the two will discuss;
    Trumph: Michelle, what you need to do is develop a gimmick that will help bring your poll numbers up.
    Michelle: That sounds good Donnie, maybe like the birther thing, right?
    Trumph: You are on the right track. I was thinking of something everybody would likely believe.
    Michelle: What exactly are you talking about Donnie?
    Trumph: I'll have something for you in a few weeks. My operatives are working on something that will bring Obama to his Knees.
    Michelle: Okay Donnie but hurry, time is running out.
    Trumph: Just keep criticizing him, some of that stuff is sure to sink in the minds of the voters.

    Two of the most hated people in America are going to have a pow wow, and are they going to compare notes on how to take government funding while telling all others that is wrong to take government hand outs. Trump is nothing more then a goofball TV reality celebrity and knows nothing about how a government is run, and Bachmann is good a doing anything but doing her job, she recieves a goverment pay check for touring the country putting down the President of the United States of America .

    I'm sure the only topic will be the President's birth certificate which I am sure will create at least a million jobs. Two jokes having a meeting.

    So is she pushing for a spot on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice? After all, she spent just about every day since her last election running for President instead of doing the job her constituents elected her to do, so it is likely that she will have to find something to augment her Government Pension, the Farm Subsidies she receives and the Federal Health subsidies her husband receives.

    Why? Does she need advice on how to stick investors with debt and bankruptcy, while walking away with millions?

    She has lost her chance to win the nomination. Rick Perry stole her thunder. I don't think that Donald Trump will really help her at all.

    What in the world could these two have to talk about in 4 meetings? I mean, Obama's birth certificate, border fence, and Marcus' gay curing clinic. That's 15 minutes of ignorance......
