Donald Trump ended his months-long public flirtation with a 2012 presidential run Monday, saying that he will not seek the Republican nomination -- even though he could have won the election.
Did anyone really think Trump was running anything other than his mouth?
Trump was probably gonna stretch this running for president hoax as long as he could. It got him free press. It fed his Empire State ego.
So, why stop now?
'If you don't like the heat, get out of the kitchen'.
Obviously, after that triple smack down:
First President Obama at the correspondence dinner:
"No one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald," Obama said at the swanky black tie event. "And that's because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter - like did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?"
Then, SNL's Seth Meyers:
"Donald Trump said that he was running for president as a Republican. That's funny, because I thought he was running as a joke."
Finally, when Obama got Osama, the breaking news preempted Trump's Apprentice show.
Hence, Trump left the hot kitchen.
