DAILY BEAST TUMBLRS

5:52 PM, October 24th, 2012
Effective immediately, in light of your latest foolish attempt at seeming important, we [at Newsweek & The The Daily Beast] will ignore you and your hot air for the foreseeable future—or, at the very least, until after the Nov. 6 election.

A letter to Donald Trump. Reblog if you’ll join our Trump-cott. (via newsweek)

Sorry Donald.

At the Trump/Palin pizza summit, both ate their slices with a fork. Just FYI.

More from Meghan McCain's interview with The Donald

Meghan: Have you hired any advisers yet?
Donald: I’m thinking about it. Tell me, who do you like? Do you like Tony Fabrizio?
Meghan: Yeah, maybe.
Donald: How do you like McLaughlin? You know, the McLaughlin brothers?
Meghan: I’d say stay away from Steve Schmidt, who ran my father’s campaign.
Donald: So you like McLaughlin better than Fabrizio, between you and I?
Meghan: I do.

Donald Trump: So are we doing a radio show?

Meghan McCain: No, this is an interview for The Daily Beast.

Donald: Oh, OK, good. I like you. I see you a lot on television. I like you and I like your father, I’ll tell you. And I like your mother. I like your whole family. Hey look, I supported your family, right? 

It gets better.

This. Right here. Is your. Donald Trump.

Many years ago, I attended a social event at Donald Trump’s Mad King Ludwig digs, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach. (Trump rents it out to anyone with enough cash.) Donald wasn’t there (I think this was during the Ivana divorce, so he was a bit distracted). But he was there in … oils. Right off the main bar, there’s a huge portrait of Trump. Thought you’d get a kick out of seeing how he sees himself.  I swear I am not making this up.

No joke.

[I]n 2008 alone, Bloomberg’s charitable contributions totaled $235 million. In 2009, Ellison gave his medical foundation stock worth $73.2 million, according to IRS records. Newhouse’s foundation reported making donations totaling $11.8 million on its 2009 IRS return. And a tax return filed last year revealed that the late entertainer Johnny Carson even left his charitable foundation $156 million.

Compare: In the past two decades, the Trump foundation’s total charitable contributions have totaled $6.7 million.

Of course we’re already thinking ahead to 2012, so we polled some voters. Obama vs. Romney is a close race. Obama vs. Palin, not so much. But look what happens when you throw Donald Trump into the mix. Check out how an independent candidate could disrupt the 2012 race.
