  1. What?

    The news just said Donald Trump endorsed Newt Gingrich. In any case I can't imagine a Trump endorsement being worth anything. It's right up there with a Warren Jeffs Mitt Romney endorsement.

    And we should care because why? Trump is a nobody trying to be a somebody in politics.

    As long as he has no interest in seeing a Palestinian State and he wants to go to war with Iran, Trump and his AIPAC NEO-CON friends will support Romney.

    If Gingrich was in the lead right now, Trump would back him. Trump is in this for Trump....what can he gain from backing a looser?

    I think he went for Romney because for the first time in his life, Trump was jealous of someone else's hair.

    A business looney trying to increase ratings on his anti-popular TV show with ungodly amounts of money wanting a guy as president who is a business man that has ungodly amounts of money that hides all his money in over seas accounts? Now why in the world would Trump endorse Romney I just can't place my finger on it....
