Trump and his hair certainly make politics interesting

When Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he will run for President, David Letterman also announced that he’s coming out of retirement – just for the Trump jokes.

That’s not true, but there are many comics licking their chops right now, particularly after Trump’s announcement speech in which he took credit for just about everything, referring to himself (I’m paraphrasing here) as God’s gift to America.

Is this year’s presidential campaign going to be interesting? It is now that Trumps in.  The guys been torturing us for years, threatening to run for president then bowing out at the last minute. This time it’s apparently for real. He did drop a few celebrity names, including God’s, when he said: “I will be the greatest jobs president God ever created.”

Pope Francis, move over. You’re no longer infallible, but The Donald is.

Some other witticisms from the next President of the United States:

“I’m really rich.”

“I’m proud of my net worth. I’ve done an amazing job.”

 “I’m really proud of my success. I really am.”

 “One of the big banks came to me and said, ‘Donald, you don’t have enough borrowings. Could we loan you $4 billion?’ I said, ‘I don’t need it.’ ”

“I beat China all the time — all the time.”

 “I just sold an apartment for $15 million to somebody from China.”

“We’re building on Pennsylvania Avenue, the Old Post Office. . . . It’s going to be the best hotel in Washington.”

“I have lobbyists that can produce anything for me. They’re great.”

“We need a truly great leader now. We need a leader that wrote ‘The Art of the Deal.’ ”

“I give a lot of money away to charities and other things. I think I’m actually a very nice person.”

 “I love the Saudis. Many are in this building.”

“I love China. The biggest bank in the world is from China. You know where their United States headquarters is located? In this building, in Trump Tower.”

“I have the best golf courses in the world . . . I have one right next to the White House.”

“Nobody would be tougher on ISIS than Donald Trump. Nobody.”

“Rebuild the country’s infrastructure? Nobody can do that like me.”

“I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me . . . on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay.”

“I know the smartest negotiators in the world. . . . Believe me, folks, we will do very, very well, very, very well.”
