Trumps Dumps GOP, Again

Human-sized pile of shit and shameless businessman who couldn’t even manage casinos without bankrupting them, Donald Trump, has quit the GOP. This would give him the option—kinda—of launching another PR presidential campaign in 2012 as an Independent. One of his aides said the reality show star is “disgusted with the way Republicans are handling” the payroll tax cut extensions, although it’s unclear if that’s because they helped poor people by passing it. This is not the first time Trump has switched teams. In the late 80s, he was a registered Republican. Then in 2001 he changed his affiliation to Independent and slunk back to the GOP in 2009.
