Donald Trump threatens to run for President

Donald Trump, tycoon, property developer bankruptcy expert, became officially entitled to use the title “Doctor” on October 8, when he was presented with a degree in business administration by Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland in honor of his “business acumen”.

After picking up the honorary title, Mr/Dr Trump, whose company is controversially building a golf course on the Menie dunes in Aberdeenshire, went outside and waved the scroll around.

However, despite saying what a great honour it was to have the title of Doctor bestowed upon him, he was soon suggesting that a somewhat more prestigious honorific would perhaps be more fitting.

“A lot of people have asked me to run for President,” he said, “and until recently I would have no interest but someone has to do something. Obama is having a hard time. The US is a great country but it’s not doing very well. It should be doing much better and with proper leadership it would do unbelievably well.”

David Kennedy, a former head of the university, said that Trump ignored the local planning committee to build the golf resort near the residential Menie Estate north of Aberdeen.

“That is not the work of an honorable businessman,” Kennedy said. “The university should be bestowing honorary degrees to people who are honorable, respected for their contribution to society and most importantly a role model for the students. Donald Trump is none of these.”

    Maybe because you don’t often see a broad smile but that picture doesn’t look like “The Donald.” Maybe younger days?

        It sure looks fake! He’s admitted he works to get it to look a certain way, THAT way, in fact… Why would you want to strive to make your hair look so bizarre?

    What makes me sick is that Trump has filed bankruptcy on his Atlantic Casinos what, THREE times? How can one file bankruptcy THREE times when one is worth BILLIONS? Yeah, yeah, I know, the bankruptcy laws are different for corporations than for individuals, but WAIT! Don’t corporations have the same status and rights as individual citizens per the Supreme Court? I believe they DO. So, if corporations have the same rights and status as an individual citizen, then shouldn’t they also have the same RESPONSIBILITIES? I mean, WHY would Trump be allowed to file for bankruptcy THREE times when he is a BILLIONAIRE???

      He has to be the richest bankrupt in the world. I have come to the decision I don’t know what the word ‘bankrupt’ means.

    I’ll give him an honorary title. How about, “Sir Douchebag, he of the squirrel toupee”?

    Wait, think about it. A new TV show. each week he could have cabinet secretaries on and fire one that isn’t doing well/ Maybe he can even include members of congress. This could become a new way of running the government. If he had been president this time there would be no Republicans or Blue Dog Democrats left. He is know for one thing, you don’t go against the “Donald.”
