Vanity: Is Trump gone for good?

Posted on 05/09/2011 6:58:50 AM PDT by Maverick68

A simple question: Do you think Trump has quit or is he waiting for obumble to finish his "victory lap" before returning to throw bombs?

Personally, I believe he's doing the smart thing and laying low for a week or so....

Trump is probably looking for the next property he can persuade the state to condemn so he can build another casino.

I think maybe Trump realizes he’s better off in an environment he can strictly control.

Hopefully gone for good.

He’ll not be the candidate, he’s not conservative, he doesn’t know what it is, he lacks class and we don’t need another I, me, my, mine guy in the white house.

The man with the gold makes the rule. Trump picks his fights. He will swoop in at the next opportunity.

Didn't his tv show wrap up last night?

He'll be relatively quiet until next season.

Agree. Trump is far from stupid and knows exactly how to the play the media. I believe he will start back up again next week. The Bin Laden story will evaporate and the media hounds will be looking for something new and Trump will be their ticket.

The Obama trolls would be happy if Donald was gone . I see that Soros Axelrod media and minions have reimplemented the AstroTurf here to post over and over the GOP can not win, it’s over, don’t bother !

Barry is too strong. Donald showed how weak and easy he was to attack so he needed to be shut up!

He may not run but he certainly isn’t going to stop attacking Obie’s policies.

Whatever you think of his personality and politics, the man used his celebrity and a good portion of his reputation to force the world’s greatest fraud to show his hand.

If this birth certificate is indeed altered as many suggest, he’s forced a felony!

I'll give Trump credit for forcing the issue now. Had Obama let the eligibility issue fester and grow into a fever pitch through the election season only to release his LFBC next year as an "October Surprise" the results could have been devastating to Republicans.

Now that the eligibility issue is politically dead, hopefully the media will stop asking every single potential Republican candidate to go on the record about where they think Obama was born.

I've been wondering why Trump seems to have backed down since Zero produced yet another fake BC. It is not like Trump to accept the fake, just like none of us are accepting it.

So, the only conclusion I can come to is, that Trump forced Zero to produce "something" and that "something" is fake, I'm sure Trump has had experts all over that document & my feeling is that he will pounce with the proof when the time is right!

I don't believe for one minute that Trump is stupid & that he would have gone thru all that media hype & then just sit back quietly now. I think Zero should fear the fact that The Donald is being so quiet!!

Your guess is as good as mine.

Like the cretin in the WH today, Trump is an arrogant pompous narcissist. Its all about Obama and its all about Trump.

Trump is quiet because you are correct. He is not at all stupid and he reads the MSM like it was “Dick & Jane Goes Up A Hill”.

The whole reason Trump is so quiet is, the fact that Bin Laden has been sleeping with the crabs lately. Wait till another Obama caused “crisis” surfaces that preoccupies Obama’s flying monkeys in the Press again.

That is when we will start hearing from the Donald.

He was on F&F this AM. He sounded shocked at the attack on him by Zero and the comedian specifically directed at him..

He said he was use to criticism, but not direct attacks.

He may want to go back to his business life. Politics may be to rough for him.

Trump is smart enough to know that now is the right time to keep quiet for a bit. Obama will be back to making an ass of himself soon enough.

As to the "forgery", calling the issue politically dead isn't the half of it. Trump's avoiding it because he knows a trap when he sees one. The President of the United States can produce a flawless forgery. He's had years to prepare, millions to spend, legions to do his bidding.

For Obama to release an "OBVIUS FORGERIE!!1!" with issues that any wide eyed amateur with an internet connection detect in 5 minutes is no cause to celebrate. It means Obama doesn't want the issue to die, and needs some useful idiots around to keep the "crazy Birther" meme rolling forever.

As far as training people to fetch his stick, Obama's way smarter than the Birthers. He's living rent free inside your OODA loop.

Except to the most deeply-entrenched birthers (who would've never accepted any document Obama released as legitimate), the eligibility issue is dead and Trump knows it. Obama took the wind out of his sails. If you think Trump is going to champion the "BC is fake" issue, prepare to be disappointed. It's a political loser.

We heard from Trump this morning on Fox and Friends in a phone interview.

Yes, his tone at this point has changed a litle. He praised Obama for the raid and his concentration was on Pakistan.

He said no more money to Pakisan until they fully cooperate with the US. HE WENT ON TO SAY THAT PAKISTAN MUST GIVE UP THEIR NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THIS IS A NEW ARGUMENT BUT A WORTHWHILE ONE.

He was not asked any questions about the BC. He did say that the fact that he was the total show at the Press dinner showed him that the WH was taking him very seriously.

Not at all right. Trump will counter direct attacks on him with harder hits back. He makes it hurt and sets the level at how hard they hit him first. He is nobody to be underestimated. That is why he is where he is.

“Personally, I believe he’s doing the smart thing and laying low for a week or so”

Is this like how he smartly won the birther issue by wasting everyone’s time in forcing Obama to prove it was a non-issue? What a wily fox that Trump is. Everything he does, he wins. Even when he very clearly loses.

“to show his hand”

Yes, to show his winning hand. Since when was it good gameplay to lose a hand?

“If this birth certificate is indeed altered as many suggest, he’s forced a felony!”

I’m sure that’ll be proven, and Obama impeached and thrown in jail. Also, a flotilla of clouds will carry you off to Shangra-la, where you’ll live out your days in perfect contentment.

Interesting. Means no more money to Pakistan—and I’m okay with that.

“He was not asked any questions about the BC”

Like he needs prompting to blahblahblah about whatever he wants. Him not talking about it means Obama won, which means it was a waste of time all along.

Do they never figure out that this does not affect us the same way it does them?

When told, "It's over, you can't win," they believe it and fold, because to them, words are gods--words must be believed, the dogma being "If it's in print and on TV, it's true--especially if we say it!" When I (and, I suspect, most on FR) hear, "You can't win," that's when it becomes the most imperative to get out and work for your candidate and vote.

At least, I hope that's the general sentiment.

I think the most dangerously effective thing they could tell us is, "Well, we ain't got a chance against you guys this year--may as well pack it in and concede the White House!"

But I'd still get out and vote. I don't want just a victory, but a landslide of terraforming proportions.

Trump is just biden his time. Remember, he wrote "The Art of the Deal". Timing plays a big part in the "Art".

He's playing the media right now. Pretty soon we'll be seeing headlines deperately reading "Is Trump Gone For Good?"

Oh, wait a minute.......

I would be happy to see Trump gone. The last thing we need is another demagogue beating the populist drum, and laughingly calling himself a Republican, running for president.

You seem to have a real hate for Trump. He hasn't done anything but stand up to Zero & that is a good thing. About time someone does, our weak pubbies in Washington sure won't!

If he "wasted your time" then you might have a beef, but you say he "wasted everyones time" well I still continued to go about what I do daily, his fight with Zero didn't waste my time, maybe his, but surely not "everyones"!!!

I think Trump has done a great service for this country.
He has shown that you have to play hardball with the facists in the White House and hopefully, a GOP candidate will “get it”.
I don’t want Trump as the GOP nominee, but would vote for him in a heartbeat over the obamachrist....

I have to agree. It does not make sense that a guy as smart as Donald Trump would squander his reputation for no good reason. If he didn’t intend to really run for President I doubt he would have made such a big splash. I could be really wrong but I think Donald is laying low for a few weeks til the last episode of Apprentice airs and then I think he will announce he is running. Lets face it the GOP field at this point is not exactly overwhelming.
