‘Feels Very Naked Gun’: Twitter Mocks Donald Trump And His Hairpiece Over 2016 Run (SCREENSHOTS)

Rachel Dolezal recently announced that she, a Caucasian female, identifies as a black woman. Hearing her attempts to justify essentially living in blackface for years almost seemed like the most ridiculous thing we might hear for a long time — and then Donald Trump announced that he thinks he would be a viable candidate for President:

“So, ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again,” Trump told the crowd in a lengthy and meandering 45-minute speech that hit on his signature issues like currency manipulation from China and job creation, while also taking shots at the president and his competitors on the Republican side.

“Sadly the American dream is dead,” Trump said at the end of his speech. “But if I get elected president I will bring it back bigger and better and stronger than ever before.”

Trump promised that he will be “the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” adding that he’s “really rich” — something that sets him apart from the “losers” who have previously run the country.

Trump’s announcement was almost magical in its glorious farcicality. In fact, it was so wonderful that the Democratic National Committee could barely contain its mirth. In a statement released on Twitter, DNC National Press Secretary Holly Shulman wrote that Trump “adds some much-needed seriousness that has previously been lacking from the GOP field.”

While it is easy to laugh at Trump forcing himself into the clown car that is the GOP presidential field, it’s important to remember that if Americans as a whole prove stupid enough to vote him into any elected office whatsoever, he’s always going to be the guy who thinks that cold weather in July of 2014 disproves global warming.

Trump will never not be the person who thinks that he is “right” about vaccinations causing autism. Trump and his hairpiece have been responsible for some terrible logical failures — like when he blamed President Obama for the unrest in Baltimore after police murdered Freddie Gray, or when he helped push the moronic narrative that the President is a ‘Manchurian candidate’ who was born in Kenya and has illegally usurped power in America because something, something, dark side.

Trump believes that global warming is a concept “created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive,” and that “our planet is freezing.”

He also very strongly believes that a black man’s win on one season of the Apprentice makes him “the least racist person there is.” After all, he has “always had a great relationship with the blacks” — even when Trump Management refused to rent or negotiate rentals “because of race or color,” and even told black people that apartments were not available (Trump complained that the government was trying to force him to rent to welfare recipients).

Sure, he’s crazy, but his presence in the GOP field will certainly add some fun to the 2016 election.
