Trump Is a Clown Who Hurts Romney
Before his meeting with Romney, Trump repeated to CNN his nonsense that President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. and, therefore, is not legally president.
That’s an attention-getting claim Trump first made months ago when he was flirting with a presidential bid of his own. Although officials of the state of Hawaii have made public Obama’s U.S. birth certificate, The Donald keeps repeating his phony charge.
Trump is a smart guy in some ways. But he’s a clown who loves doing or saying things, no matter how ridiculous they might be. Most of you know of The Donald because of his TV role in the popular “The Apprentice” — now “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
I’ve known him since long before that. We first met in the George Steinbrenner suite in the old Yankee Stadium more than 20 years ago. Now we still see each other in the Steinbrenner family suite in the new House The Boss Built — at season openers, playoffs or the World Series.
No matter the score, Trump leaves almost every game about the fifth inning. Not exactly a dedicated Yankee fan.
