PGH Quick Take – Trump Says He Isn’t Running for President – No One Cares

Stop the Presses!!!!  Donald Trump says he will not run for President.

Oh right.  We already knew that.

In an announcement that I’m sure will be important to someone (Trump himself), Trump breathlessly exclaimed:

“I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election.  I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.”

Whatever.  Seriously, the guy is a parody of himself.  Which proves just how gullible can be a certain brand of voters. [Hint, think beverages served either steaming hot or icy cold, but never trustworthy]
