Every day is a bad hair day for The Donald

Donald Trump Roasted, Upstaged and Then Fired By Indy 500

The last two weeks have been eventful for The Donald. There was the Trump Triumph of prodding Obama into producing his long-form birth certificate. Sure, Obama was tactically brilliant. The percentage of Americans believing the birther conspiracy fell to 10%. But Obama's action also could be viewed as elevating Trump to national standing as a potential candidate, which may have been Obama's intention.
The next day he swore repeatedly in a speech in Las Vegas, embarrassing Republicans including Lindsey Graham of South Carolina who called it “unpresidential”. The theme of the speech was his criticism of Obama’s policies, mostly in foreign affairs. The level of his critical thinking is best demonstrated by his comment, “Our leaders are stupid.”
That same week, last Saturday, our favourite cartoon candidate was roasted by comedian Seth Meyers and, of course, President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Meyers’ routine seems to have been an ordeal for him as Trump did not smile once during Meyers’ onslaught. Trump later lambasted Meyers as having “no talent” and being a “stutterer”.
The following night we discovered that Obama had ordered the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, which gave an extra dimension to the words he used to mock Trump’s firing decisions in ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’, "These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir."
Obama also said:
“Donald Trump ... he’s taken some flak lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate to rest than The Donald. Now he can get to focusing on the issues that matter. Like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened at Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?”
The audience laughed and applauded while The Donald fumed.
The next day, Obama’s speech announcing the killing of Bin Laden pre-empted ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and drew the biggest TV audience for any Obama speech.  Many have remarked on the irony.
Trump was recently selected to be the driver of the pace car for the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500. Now, he has cancelled citing “time and business constraints”. Not everyone is convinced. Some believe that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway withdrew the invite as Trump is seen as a divisive character due to his birther speeches.
The Wig Trumpet has said he would announce whether or not he would run for the presidential nomination after the current season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ ends on May 22. Most likely, we will have to wait until June to find out if Don-Don will take on the fight.
