    Trump will provide some much appreciated comedic relief.

    I like Trump being in there , he has already shown his disain for the 'boosh' and I like that , also think that he has no use for 'roobio' or other 'rinos' . Don't know if he has a chance or is even really serious of running . Ihope that he does a perot on any moderate rino that runs .

    yeah , think that Trump may shake things up for the moderate repub / rinos and I see that as a good thing . Only thing worse than a liberal , dem , or progressive is a moderate republican / gop'er in my opinion Flanders !!

    It's being reported Trump paid people to be present at his announcement but I think he might keep some of them honest

    The Donald has become a media target on television and in print:

    Donald Trump Is a Stain on the Republican Party
    Peter Wehner
    06.21.2015 - 9:00 AM

    Donald Trump Hurts the Republican Party

    First off, I cannot see how Trump can stain a turd!

    Secondly, if the media is out to destroy Trump with their usual tactics, I’ll give him a lot more consideration than I give to media choices —— which is none.

    Frankly, television is at least responsible for most the trouble this country is in. To me, I was never sure which one was guilty, television or the federal government.

    Before you take the word of media seers, let me remind you of the garbage they loved to pieces. You need go no further than the late Ted Kennedy, the Clintons, and the Chicago sewer rat if you are interested in learning exactly what the media did to this country.

    The Donald will not lose any support for saying:

    "He's a war hero because he was captured," Trump said.

    In an interview with reporters after his remarks, Trump doubled down on his remarks attacking McCain.

    "I think John McCain has done very little for veterans," Trump said. "I didn't pick a fight with John McCain; John McCain picked a fight with me."

    Donald Trump: John McCain is only a war hero 'because he was captured'
    By Ryan Lovelace • 7/18/15 1:45 PM

    Donald Trump John McCain is only a war hero because he was captured Washington Examiner

    He should have said McCain is a loser because he was shot down. He should have acknowledged McCain’s unique heroism in that he refused to accept early release from brutal captivity.

    So you are voting for Hillary, perhaps not directly. A vote for Trump running as an independent will be a vote for democrat nominee.

    hey JOEMOMA , no , I'll vote directly for Hilary so as to hurt moderate republicans that have brought about pizz poor socalled conservatives like the bush , Christy , roobio , and most of the rest of the rino crew . Only one I will support with my vote will be a Cruz , Trump or similar .

    It looks like I am right:

    Poll: Trump surges to big lead in GOP presidential race
    By Dan Balz and Peyton M. Craighill July 20 at 5:16 PM

    Poll Trump surges to big lead in GOP presidential race - The Washington Post

    In fact, it looks like voters in Arizona will finally wise up to John McCain’s concern for POWs:
