There’s Something About The Donald

This week, Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney for president of the United States.

So, I’m sure you’re wondering, exactly what does it mean to be endorsed by the Donald? Does Romney now have a secure path to the White House, all because Trump gave him his blessing? Could the pope’s blessing be not far behind?

Who's he going to endorse next? Pick me, pick me!

Well, the way the media gets their undies twisted into a knot every time Trump announces that he’s going to make an announcement, you’d think that would be the case. I guess it means, Romney should start packing his bags and head on over to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

After all, getting an endorsement from Trump must be akin to receiving a knighthood from the queen, a sainthood from the pope, or being crowned Miss Universe.

As abrasive as The Donald sometimes can be, he must have done something right to warrant all the media attention he gets whenever he decides to thrust himself upon the political arena. Perhaps he once did the man upstairs a favor and is now calling in his chips. On the other hand, this does have the markings of a pact made with the devil. Which would explain why Trump has been elevated to sage extraordinaire.

Why else would we the media keep falling for covering his press conferences as if he’s about to announce the cure for what ails us? Reminds me of the old TV commercial adage, “When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen.” Of course, E.F. Hutton went defunct years ago, no doubt because people were no longer listening. Yet, somehow we keep listening to Señor Trump.

Got to hand it to the man:  He sure is savvy.

Which is why I’m going to ask Trump to endorse me. So, when I sign up for match.com, my profile will include an endorsement message from Trump himself. That should make me date-worthy!

When my daughter graduates from college next year, I’ll make sure Trump endorses her to prospective employers. Heck, I’ll even ask him to introduce her when she gives the valedictorian speech. He’s that good. (Note: As her mother, I can only assume she’ll be giving the valedictorian speech, so please do not try to burst my bubble)

Whenever we fly cross-country, Trump will be there to christen the plane.

If someone annoys my son at work, Trump will be there to tell him he’s fired. If the IRS ever calls me in for an audit, Trump will be there to bully them into being nice to me.

I don’t know what draws the press to him, so that they’re hanging on his every word, but I’m hoping some of Trump’s brilliance rubs off on me. Maybe with his endorsement, I’ll become a more scintillating writer. I’ll even remember to take out the trash Sunday evenings, and say cool things like, “Donald dahling, where’s the crown you lent me?” Maybe I, too, will become so full of myself I start believing my own, er, dribble.

Seems to me, now that Trump has endorsed Romney we should be calling the candidate, Sir Romney. Might as well start calling me, Lady Monica. That’s how good he is.

On the other hand, maybe this has nothing to do with The Donald, per se, and all to do with the Donald name. So here are a few other Donald’s I’m anticipating will give an endorsement to Mitt, Newt, or even, Ron Paul.

  • Donald Duck
  • Don King
  • Donald Sutherland

Whad’ya say, boys? You’re not going to let The Donald steal your thunder. Time to get off your derrières and endorse, endorse, endorse!

So, tell me, whose endorsement are you waiting for?

  1. The Trump is a very entertaining man, must see TV. But sometimes he takes a serious issue and make a joke out of it in a political way that can be distasteful at times. But he’s a great man according to news articles.

  2. Funny post! I love to laugh at The Donald. I’ve even watched his Celeb Apprentice. Who would I want to endorse me. Hmmm. Nancy Werlin’s endorsement would be cool. She writes YA thrillers, and I just published one.

  3. Monica, I think the Donald should endorse our blogs. Maybe then I could buy the DSLR and a laptop for the Son! That would be the day! However, I’m sure there would be some caveat. Maybe the Donald would make us write weekly blog posts about him, or worse, date him. Shudder! I take that back. I don’t think the Donald should endorse our blogs. We’ll have to figure out another way to get together any extra cash we might need. Sigh.

    • Oh, Bella, can you imagine the insanity if our blogs become The Donald themed 24/7?? We’d lose readers hand over fist! I couldn’t take it! You’re right, we have to come up with another cash cow. The Anti-Donald.

  4. Maybe Don Knotts.. I really want to know why Donald is allowed in public with that hair. I’m sure he has a team of make-up team, surly they think it every time the dull the glow of his shiny face. ( I know, I am off topic, but his hair is hideous). Aside from that, great post. Perfect for my Sunday cup of java..

    • Thank you, Brenda! I’m glad I could add to your Sunday morning enjoyment. 😉

      La Donald should be arrested for carrying hair like that in public. It’s assault with a deadly weapon or something similar, if you ask me. Too ridiculous, it’s funny.

  5. Funny stuff, Monica! I, too, can’t understand The Donald’s power and prestige, but hey, if it works for him…. Since you’ll be so chummy with him, would you put in a good word for my son, that he finds suitable employment this summer?!!

    • Thank you, Jodi. I’m just as baffled as everyone else as to why he gets so much attention. He’s annoying, a gnat on our cultural landscape and I wish NBC would cancel his show once and for all. Let’s not give him any more power than he already has. It’s going to his head, that’s for sure. 😉

  6. I’m not sure it really matters who he endorses, I have my doubts that anybody is going to be able to get us out of this mess. Unless of course the RIGHT WOMAN applies for the job. Seems like we women have gotten pretty darn good at cleaning up everyone else’s messes.

    • Debra,
      Your last sentence makes such sense, as I have just finished cleaning up the bathroom after my husband used it. I know, I know – TMI and gross! Sorry. However, in the sense and context in which you wrote it, I wholeheartedly agree.
      Thanks for sharing your insights.

    • Let’s here it for the RIGHT WOMAN! Now, where do we find her? It’s going to take a lot of work to fix this mess we’re in, so I hope she brings a lot of cleansers, mop, broom and whatnot. 😉

  7. Trump gets our attention because the media ram him down the public’s throat. Also, he’s a billionaire. People should just stop writing about him.Maybe then he’ll go away. I find the guy totally uninteresting. Just another airhead moron that’s thrust into the limelight because the media and (some of) the public are full of airhead morons.

  8. ~~~~Monica,
    Looove it!
    I wonder if THE DONALD would endorse my blog? Hee
    I wonder if he has a son you could date or a very Rich friend?

    I def want his endorsement.

    ….But I sure as hell wouldn’t want him near the White House! Nope Xxx

    • Kim, when I get The Donald to endorse me, I’m make sure you’re covered too. I think it’s a fabulous idea to get him to endorse both our blogs!! 🙂 Maybe he can write a forward?

  9. Ha! ha! ha! 🙂 Monica, love your post. I shouldn’t get started on this topic because I have so many things to say… I think Donald’s endorsement of Romney is just hilarious, how can anyone and I mean anyone take the man seriously?? oh but then again there are people that do- insane. I bet you Romney is cringing over this endorsement right about now 🙂

    • I’m not sure that he is cringing. First of all, the endorsement was made at Romney’s rally. Second, Romney seems to have won Nevada, and clearly that was because of the Trump Bump. Trump is a Tea Party favorite and according to CNN, the Tea Party was out in full force today. Ergo, Trump brought them out to caucus. So, success!

      • I guess I missed that. I read an article that said Romney wanted to put some distance between Trump and himself, just because there was some pressure from the Party to do so. I guess that’s changed now, esp. if the endorsement came at Romney’s rally. Trump is hugely popular in Nevada, so I shouldn’t be surprised, it still irks me beyond words

  10. His opinions or endorsements mean nothing to me or anyone I know. I would rather have Yogi Berra’s endorsement. He has been artful in projecting himself as a king maker and the press has so projected as well without basis in fact.

    • I always get Yogi Berra and Yogi the Bear confused. But just to be clear, you mean the baseball player? In which case, I’d like Reggie Jackson. Or maybe Joe DiMaggio. Nah, Kevin Costner for his role in that baseball movie. And, I so agree. Trump has been triumphant in convincing the press he’s a king maker. Which is kind of scary how easy they can be duped.

  11. Donald’s endorsement wouldn’t make me more or less likely to vote for someone since that’s not the candidate’s fault. But the candidate taking the endorsement seriously and kissing Donald’s ring, does make me less likely to vote for that candidate.
