    The most anticlimatic item in today’s news: The Donald says that he’s running for Prexy. Big whoop, except that the Klown Kar just got a bit funnier, since DT doesn’t say anything except really stupid shit.

    I wonder who he would choose as his running mate, maybe his hair?

    Donald Trump announces 2016 GOP presidential run — Twitter launches impromptu celebrity roast

    “SFK @stephenkruiser

    Now that Trump has given the ’16 GOP field its Rip Taylor, we can get back to the business of destroying Chairwoman Mao Tse Hillary.
    9:11 AM – 16 Jun 2015”

    “Jon Ralston @RalstonReports

    Trump using “stupid” a lot in speech. Know what’s stupid? Using “Rockin’ in the Free World” as your anthem and not knowing what it’s about.
    8:27 AM – 16 Jun 2015″

    Sadly, most people do not understand or appreciate the use of irony in song lyrics. The content and delivery of the chorus “Keep on rockin’ in the free world” makes people assume that this is a song that celebrates freedom and democracy, rather than a protest song. This song became the unofficial anthem of the demolition of the Berlin Wall–and by extension the reunification of Germany and the collapse of the Soviet Union. It was a poor choice.

    Here are the lyrics:

    There’s colors on the street
    Red, white and blue
    People shufflin’ their feet
    People sleepin’ in their shoes
    But there’s a warnin’ sign on the road ahead
    There’s a lot of people sayin’ we’d be better off dead
    Don’t feel like Satan, but I am to them
    So I try to forget it, any way I can.

    Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

    I see a woman in the night
    With a baby in her hand
    Under an old street light
    Near a garbage can
    Now she puts the kid away, and she’s gone to get a hit
    She hates her life, and what she’s done to it
    There’s one more kid that will never go to school
    Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.

    Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

    We got a thousand points of light
    For the homeless man
    We got a kinder, gentler,
    Machine gun hand
    We got department stores and toilet paper
    Got styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer
    Got a man of the people, says keep hope alive
    Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive.

    Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
    Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

    Still waiting for the report from that team he sent to Hawaii.

    Watching the clown bus rather than car fill up is getting more and more interesting. No wonder Jeb Bush wants to stay out of the fallout as much as possible. The GOP could have as many as 20 in the race. I wonder how many will make the FOX debates?

    And New Hampshire has rejected the whole idea of FOX picking who is who, and just invited everybody!

    Good times coming political-entertainment wise.

    But we need Herman Cain. Seriously.

    Isn’t Ben Carson filling the “Step-N-Fetchit” role this time around?

    Yes, but he is not even in the same class of communicator that Cain is.

    The Donald gets dumped.

    NBC is ending its business relationship with Donald Trump over his recent comments about Mexican immigrants.

    “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” NBC said in a statement. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”

    The network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump, the statement added. Its relationship with “Celebrity Apprentice” will continue, as Trump ceased his involvement with the reality show during his presidential bid.

    The real estate mogul and 2016 presidential candidate has faced criticism for comments he made during his announcement speech earlier this month.

    “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” he said. “They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

    Univison previously announced that it would cease its relationship with the Miss Universe Organization over the comments. Trump has said he will sue that network for breach of contract and defamation.

    Trump might spend or cost himself more than Romney.

    Macy’s is the latest to cut ties with Trump following his controversial comments about Mexico and Mexicans during his announcement that he was running for president.
