Forget The Donald as Quickly as Possible

New Yorkers have long know that Donald Trump is an egomaniacal clown with serious delusions of grandeur. So I’m alarmed at hearing various nice noises on my Twitter (@dkahanerules) and Facebook (David Kahane) feeds emanating from the right side of the aisle regarding The Donald’s latest fan dance. Just because he’s showing a little more skin this time doesn’t mean he should be taken seriously. Case in point:

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday that former President Bill Clinton was the best of the last four presidents – and former President George W. Bush was the worst.

“I would really say Clinton, probably. I would have to say Clinton,” because “there was a little spirit,” Trump said. “Frankly, he would have been – had he not met Monica [Lewinsky], had he not met Paula [Jones], had he not met various and sundry semi-beautiful women, he would have had a much better deal going. He was destroyed by that. He was really hurt very badly by that, but he’s Teflon,” Trump said.

Takes one to know one, I guess. Meanwhile:

Trump said Bush was the worst because of the Iraq war. “I’m not a fan of Bush, and a lot of people are surprised, but he got us into Iraq, and if you look … in Reuters in ’04 … I said, ‘Don’t go into Iraq. You’re going to destabilize the Middle East, and the worst elements are going to take over the oil,’ and that’s what happened,” said Trump.

Remember, The Donald is always right. And he’s, very, very rich — or so he says.
