Donald Trump, the metrosexual celebrity billionaire running for the Republican presidential nomination, announced today that he would sign an RNC oath of loyalty to the Republican Party wherein he pledges not to run as an independent third party presidential candidate during the 2016 race. Trump had indicated earlier that he would not sign such a pledge but powerful elite insider influence cronies in Washington have evidently persuaded him otherwise.
By kneeling before the forces of political correctness -- manifest in one of the most famous political correctness edicts of all time: Ronald Reagan's 11th Commandment "thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican" (which wasn't really Ronald Reagan's, some guy named Gaylord Parkinson made it up, but in any case) -- Trump has allowed himself to be shackled to the political correctness ball and chain.
CNN: Priebus asked the real estate magnate to tone down his fiery rhetoric on immigration, as establishment Republicans grew increasingly worried that Trump was angering the Hispanic community.
After a fifteen minute "sitdown" with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Trump placed his name upon the sacred politically correct document thereby sealing his appeasment in writing and agreeing to his overseer's demands like a Mexican yard worker in a day labor line. "Si Senor Preebis."
"I, Donald J. Trump, affirm that if I do not win the 2016 Republican nomination for President of the United States I will endorse the 2016 Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is," it reads. I further pledge that I will not seek to run as an independent or write-in candidate nor will I seek or accept the nomination for president of any other party."
Trump, for his part, appeared pleased with The Deal. What did he get in exchange for his surrender?:
ABC NEWS: "Absolutely nothing," Trump said. "Just the assurance that I’ll be treated fairly.”
Trump: "I will be totally pledging my allegiance to the Republican Party and for the conservative principles for which it stands."
Sigh. George Washington would never have cowered and bowed in the face of such adversity. Can you imagine George Washington toning down his revolutionary rhetoric or pledging fealty to the Crown just because some sniveling little Tory loyalist functionary demanded it?
Donald Trump however... he'll never make it up the Potomac in his great, tacky, noisy, now politically neutered pirate ship of pomposity - never happen.
What a TOTAL LOSER!
It's Munich all over again.
