Politico, April 17
Quote:
"Well, Mitt Romney is a basically small-business guy, if you really think about it," Trump said in an interview aired [last] Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "He was a hedge fund. He was a funds guy. He walked away with some money from a very good company that he didn't create. He worked there. He didn't create it."

Informed by host Candy Crowley that Romney did create companies, Trump said: "He'd buy companies, he'd close companies, he'd get rid of the jobs, OK? I've built a great company. And one of the beauties of, frankly, if and when I announce, some time prior to June, you will see how big my company is, because it's much bigger and much more powerful and much stronger than anyone really knows. So you're going to see how good it is. You're going to see how strong it is."

Trump, who is weighing a run for the Republican presidential nomination, said he's "much bigger than this man and have a much, much bigger net worth. I mean my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney." Asked what percentage of his income he pays in taxes, Trump said: "I'd really have to check."

But is his..bigger than Romney's? Geez..

Trump is actually right about that-when Romney ran Bain Capital they bought this company called Ampad. He, along with his investors, allegedly made more than 100 million by bleeding it dry and charging Ampad all of these questionable fees. Ampad went bankrupt and hundreds of people lost their jobs.

The Marriage Ref WAS absolutely terrible


(CBS) Just in time for the weekend, there's a new Donald Trump feud. This time it's Trump vs. Jerry Seinfeld. (Our money's on Seinfeld.)

Here's what happened. According to the NY Post, Seinfeld was supposed to appear at a benefit for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital hosted by the Eric Trump Foundation on Sept. 13. Seinfeld pulled out of the event because he disagrees with Donald Trump's views on President Barack Obama's citizenship.

And then Trump to lashed out. The Post quotes a letter from Trump to Seinfeld, in which Trumps rants, "I just learned you canceled a show for my son's charity, because of the fact that I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader."

Trump writes that he didn't care that Seinfeld broke his commitment, but that the children of St. Jude's would be disappointed.

Then this, according to the Post: "What I do feel badly about is that I agreed to do, and did, your failed show, 'The Marriage Ref,' even though I thought it was absolutely terrible...Despite its poor ratings, I didn't cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did."

A Seinfeld representative said the comedian had agreed to the appearance at the benefit in January before Trump said he may run for president. The birther talk has made Seinfeld uncomfortable but he will make a donation to the Eric Trump Foundation and to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Apparently net worth is the best test of presidential ability.

Presidential ability, pffft. He's "much bigger than this man" (hear that, Mitt?!) and that's what counts.

Most of the third-party dreams out there seem like escapism to me. Any party that doesn't have strong representation in Congress and the state legislatures won't be able to achieve major reforms. And with that kind of representation would come vulnerability to the same corruption by monied interests that afflicts both major parties now.

And unfortunately no party will have strong representation in Congress without first being established through the big seat.

I have to read that whole transcript-then I have to stab my eye with a fork

gawker.com

We here at Gawker have been too giddy ever since chief Daily Beast wordsmith Meghan McCain mentioned that she'd be interviewing Donald Trump. What nutty and awkward and flirtatious turns would this clash of egos take?

Well, the transcript is up now! Here are some memorable moments:

Trump has no idea what's happening right off the bat:

Donald Trump: So are we doing a radio show?

Meghan McCain: No, this is an interview for The Daily Beast.

Donald: Oh, OK, good. I like you. I see you a lot on television. I like you and I like your father, I'll tell you. And I like your mother. I like your whole family. Hey look, I supported your family, right?

Things heat up:

Meghan: What's interesting about you and your candidacy, I think that some people think it's some sort of joke or publicity stunt. But even at dinner last night I was sitting with my friends, and it's like the more people talk about it the more interested they are and the more convinced they are that you could be a nominee for the Republican Party. What I'm looking for is someone who's not going to take bullshit, not going to let the media run them around, and who is going to give it back to Obama. And you seem to be the only person who's really doing it right now.

Donald: I love your attitude. And I've seen your attitude, and that's why I'm doing this interview

McCain demands employment:

Meghan: If you run for president, will you hire me for your campaign?

Donald: I like the idea! I love it! Will you do me a favor? See how I do, and you call me at the right time. I'm serious about it.

Eventually they stop caring about readers' interests entirely:

Meghan: Have you hired any advisers yet?

Donald: I'm thinking about it. Tell me, who do you like? Do you like Tony Fabrizio?

Meghan: Yeah, maybe.

Donald: How do you like McLaughlin? You know, the McLaughlin brothers?

Meghan: I'd say stay away from Steve Schmidt, who ran my father's campaign.

Donald: So you like McLaughlin better than Fabrizio, between you and I?

[...]

Donald: Can you do me a favor, 'cause that's very important. Those first three states are going to be very, very important. If you have some recommendations for those first three, I'd love it.

He'll never let you down, Megs:

Meghan: Are you really ready for this?

Donald: If I do it, Meghan, I'm ready. You have my word. If I do it, you will not be disappointed in my performance. That I can tell you. I won't be lazy sitting home watching television. I'm a worker.


They need to take this act on the road.
