    Two rich peas in the same pod. Too bad most Americans do not eat peas.
    Obama will be re-elected without a doubt.

    Don't give a hoot who Trump wants to back. He's an idiot.

  4. American Greed

    Donald Trump is a villain. His endorsement will hurt Romney more than help. American Greed should use Trump's face as its logo.
    I hope Romney has the guts to stand up and tell Trump to get lost. He'd probably get more supporters than lose if he did that.

    I just read last night on Yahoo, that Trump was endorsing Gingrich.. HUH???? Good call, Donald!!! Romney is going to fix this country. Maybe you could be the Labor Secretary or Treasurer.

    Why does every other news agency say he is going to support Gingrich? Is everyone else wrong or is this what CNN was hoping for?

    Who cares about tupee boy these days anyway. This is not worth the time to read it on CNN

    Romney should call Trump and say, "please don't!" Trump has no credibility. I'll vote against Romney just because Trump supports him.

    Donald Trump is not running for president. This is devastating news for Trump's supporters — all of whom are late night comedians.

    The good news is, President Obama was born in America. The bad news is, so was Donald Trump.

    If Trump is backing Romney then I think I might back Gingrich.

    What I really want to know is who The Donald's hair is going to endorse.

  23. nooneknows

    but his hair is backing Santorum, and his ego backs Gingrich

    Donald Trump said he still wants to look more closely at Obama's birth certificate to make sure that it's real. Incidentally, President Obama said the same exact thing about Donald Trump's hair.

  25. Stopthemadness

    Well looks like it's going to be between santorum and the grinch now. Trump just killed Romney's chances lmao.
