In Effort to Finally Destroy Themselves, Republicans Ask Trump to Run for President

Either Republicans hate themselves, or Donald Trump is an attention whore. Perhaps it’s both! Because according to The New York Post, Republicans are getting excited about Trump possibly running for president in 2016.

“Everybody tells me, ‘Please run for president. Please run for president,” Trump told Republicans at an event. “I would be much happier if a great and competent person came along. I’d be happy if President Obama did a great job. I’m a Republican, but before anything, I love this country. I would love to see somebody come in who is going to be great.”

Trump’s desire for a president who is going to be great automatically rules him out, but apparently no one has told him that. He has already spent $1 million researching a run at the country’s top spot.

We’re sure Republicans know what they’re doing, but look, if you know one, give them a hug. Look that conservative in the eyes and ask them how they’re doing. It might help them. Sometimes just knowing someone cares is all it takes to stop spiraling.
