Donald Trump 2016: What 5 Liberal Pundits Say About GOP Presidential Hopeful

By    |   Monday, 29 Dec 2014 07:37 PM

Donald Trump might be too rich or not as rich as everyone thinks, according to some liberal pundits. He just might be an egomaniac who has no plans to run for president in 2016.

Here are views about "the Donald” from five political observers.

1. Trump would be a terrible candidate for any office he seeks, according to Philip Bump in The Wire. The outspoken entrepreneur “pretends he will run for office all the time because he likes people to tell him he is great,” Bump stated.

Bump maintained that Trump would never run for president or other high office because of the financial disclosure requirements. “Trump’s entire persona is built on the idea that he’s a genius businessman worth gobs of money, which only he and people on his payroll know for sure,” Bump wrote.

2.
Trump is known for his weird hair, as a namesake of failed hotels and for being a “noted bankruptcy aficionado,” according to Tim Herrera in The Washington Post. Herrera said the upcoming 2016 campaign means it is time for Trump’s “Not Really Running For President But Pay Attention To Me Please” campaign.


3. Jill Bond, contributing editor for Blue Nation Review, pointed out that Trump is suggesting he can strengthen the economy and put people back to work through a 2016 presidential campaign, even though four of his companies filed for bankruptcy.

Bond added, “Trump has threatened our nation with a run for the presidency several times before; and I believe he will again, though as before, he won’t make it official.”

4. Rosie O’Donnell has been known for her liberal views as a co-host on “The View,” as well as for her widely publicized feud with Trump. The two exchanged fiery insults on TV shows and through interviews.

“Probably the Trump stuff was the most bullying I ever experienced in my life, including as a child,” O’Donnell told People. “It was national, and it was sanctioned societally. Whether I deserved it is up to your own interpretation.”


5. Liberal columnist and Fox commentator Juan Williams accused Trump of using race when attacking President Obama, which included Trump’s demand that Obama publicly display his long-form birth certificate in 2011.

Trump also questioned “whether the president was smart enough to write a best-selling book,” if he was “too busy playing basketball to handle the economy,” and “whether Obama had the grades” to get into Harvard Law School, suggesting affirmative action was involved, Williams wrote.
