Breaking: CNN, ABC report Trump to endorse Ö Romney; Update: WaPo confirms itís Romney
Hot Air ^ | February 2, 2012 | Ed Morrissey

Say, isn’t this starting to resemble a certain reality-game show on television? Or would I be fired for pointing that out? Last night, reports surfaced that casino and real-estate tycoon Donald Trump would endorse Newt Gingrich in Nevada today, just two days before the binding caucuses. This morning, both CNN and ABC say that Trump will now endorse … Mitt Romney:

Mitt Romney will receive Donald Trump’s presidential endorsement Thursday, sources with knowledge of the endorsement told CNN.

Trump will make the announcement in Las Vegas, two days before the Nevada caucuses.

ABC is a little more specific about its sourcing:

Donald Trump will endorse Mitt Romney in Las Vegas on Thursday, sources familiar with the decision tell ABC News.

A political aide in Trump’s office spoke directly with Mitt Romney by phone last night before Trump’s private plane took off from New York City to Las Vegas.

The call, sources say, was to inform Romney of Thursday’s endorsement, which will take place at a 12:30 p.m. event at the Trump International Hotel on the Las Vegas strip.

A contracting company used by the Romney campaign has been setting up for the event since Wednesday night.

I’m not surprised. Trump goes with what’s a sure thing in his eyes. He doesn’t really have any core values.

I have never considered Trump as a conservative, so this just confirms what I already believed.

Unfortunately, I suspect this will help Mitt-“I’m not concerned about the very poor”-Romney.

The media has painted Trump as a blowhard nut, which would be a perfect endorsement for Romney.

Crazy man with funny hair supports stuffy man with magic undies.

Agree. Even DeMint is calling Romeny a "conservative" with "character", now :(

Pathetic.

Not surprising. Trump has a record of donating to Democrats and to a few RINOs. After all, he is a crony capitalist, who speculates in real estate and gambling casinos, and you need the pols on your side for that.

Quite early, I speculated that Trump “attacked” Obama on the birther issue in order to put it to rest, and that worked pretty well. Obama needed an excuse to produce a new long-form COLB about three years late, and Trump gave him that excuse. And he timed it to come right before the bin Ladin raid. And then Trump dropped it—even though the new long-form COLB is an obvious forgery.

That also explains why the left-wing talking heads on TV gave Trump so much air time to do it. The White House gave them a little nudge, saying that would be OK.

Trump is anything but a conservative.

So it seems Trump was worried that a conservative might get nominated...that's why he was holding out the third party threat?

And just a small "I told ya' so" from those of us who kept saying Trump was no conservative.

Good. Romney is the perfect candidate for Trump to endorse. They’re both complete and total phonies.

Soros directed Trump to endorse Romney as payback for a bailout in 2008 and 2009. Trump was just following orders.
