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.

Donald Trump Continues to Bash New York

It’s Friday, so why not discuss a moron? A little over a month ago Donald Trump ranted that New York was “boring” and “will die in the near future” and now he’s back at it again. Only this time, he added New York columnist Jonathan Chait to his list.

The problem here (well, one of the problems) is that to be a hack, you sort of have to be literate. But hey, it was a nice try.

Donald Trump Blasts New York in Twitter Rant

Let the record show that if you publish slightly critical commentary about Donald Trump, he will blast back on Twitter and it will be fun for everyone involved. When New York’s Daily Intelligencer posted about Trump’s appearance on David Letterman, Trump responded by firing off a series of hilarious tweets. Here they are, for our enjoyment.

A vague insult followed by an odd prediction backed by no evidence whatsoever is a great start.

People Praised by The Observer Love The Observer

The New York Observer’s latest issue featured a list of “The Most Influential New Yorkers of the Past 25 Years.” New York’s Daily Intelligencer caught up with Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump  who both made the list — and surprise! They both spoke glowlingly about the paper.

The Donald wanted everyone to know that he not only loved the Observer, he just learned the word ”vibrant:”

I picked up the paper. I read the most vibrant paper and I called Jared [Kushner]. I said, ‘This paper is vibrant.’ The last issue was so great. Not because I was in it, by the way. It was just so great. And I said, ‘You’ve really done a great job, because it was so vibrant.’

Ivanka echoed those sentiments, but failed to use the word of the day:

Pretty Much Everyone is Rumored to Buy The Boston Globe

Ever since the New York Times Company announced that it was selling the Boston Globe, people have been speculating about who/what will purchase the paper.

Because the media is nothing but precise, that list has now been narrowed down to about 834 potential buyers. Below are all the ones we found mentioned, but we’ve surely missed one or 500.

Let’s Guess Who is Buying Time Inc.

Alright people, the rumor of the day is that Time Warner is currently in talks with a “serious buyer” who will purchase Time Inc., yet allow Time Warner to retain at least three magazines, including Time, Sports Illustrated and Fortune. According (oddly enough) to Fortune, “A meeting of the buyer’s representatives” is happening today.

A couple questions arise from this rumor. For starters, why would Time Warner not want to keep People, the most financially robust Time Inc. title? The second — and most important  — question: Who is buying? Below are just a few guesses. Feel free to add any in the comments/hate mail.

Trump Isn’t Going to Buy The New York Times, But It’s Still Fun to Talk About [Update]

Donald Trump is maybe considering buying The New York Times. That’s according to Daily Intelligencer, which cited “sources familiar with the situation” as saying that “Trump has engaged in more than one meeting to discuss how he might buy the Grey Lady. Details of Trump’s strategy remain scant.”

Right. So here’s what we know: Nothing. In fact, those sources don’t seem familiar with the situation at all. There really isn’t much to go on here, other than yet another opportunity to make fun of Trump.

As even Daily Intelligencer notes, there is no shot that the paper is sold to him. But hey, might as well break out some Times/Trump jokes while you can.

Update (3:28 pm):
Get ready to be shocked: Trump has decided to speak up about the matter.

Bogus TMZ Drone Mention Takes Flight in Major Media Outlets

This morning’s allegations on E! News and other outlets that the New York Daily News made up a story about Donald Trump’s kids staging a pre-election Twitter “Obama-vention” with dad is pretty good. But media misdirect honors of the week (so far) still have to go to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The paper’s story by Washington reporter Gary Martin and Center for Responsive Politics editorial director Viveca Novak got the benefit late Tuesday afternoon of the following update:

Editor’s note: This story has been changed to remove a reference to the celebrity web site TMZ applying for a permit to operate a drone. On Tuesday, TMZ denied that it has asked to operate a drone and the FAA issued the following statement: “TMZ does not have FAA authorization to fly an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), and we have no record that TMZ ever requested or inquired about an authorization. The FAA does not currently allow commercial UAS operations in the nation’s airspace, although UAS manufacturers may apply for an experimental certificate for research and development, flight and sales demonstrations, and crew training.”
