People run for president for a lot of different reasons. Some want power, some want the opportunity to get rich in back room deals, some want to advance their party’s position, some even want to do good (though this is probably true of the fewest in number of actual candidates). However, I thought of a whole different reason when I noticed Donald Trump was running for president.
Yes, that’s right, Donald Trump is probably running for president. You probably already knew that, though. I can be a bit slow on some current news as I tend to avoid it for my health. Still, though I’d rather vote for the guy who wanders around the 16th street mall in Denver screaming things at apparently no one visible in particular that may and/or may not be biblically related, Donald Trump is running.
And it occurred to me that Mr. Trump may have a reason for running that is truly unique as a candidate. Well, maybe not. Still, it might be the reason he wants to run. For the purposes of pure, unsupported speculation, I thought I would throw it out there.
Reality show possibilities. That’s right. Remember the various versions of The Apprentice? Well, that’s getting kind of old. If Trump got elected president, though, we’d have a plethora of new reality show possibilities. Just think:
– Who Wants to be a Cabinet Member?
– Who Wants a Federal Judicial Nomination?
– Who Wants to be on the Supreme Court?
– Who Wants a Favored Nation Trade Status?
– Who Wants Us to Stop Invading their Country?
– Who Wants a Pardon?
The possibilities go on and on. I would as well, but I can’t remember half the things that the president is responsible for. Rest assured, though, if Trump is elected he could turn each into a reality show. Hell, we might even be able to finance the country that way (with some decent corporate sponsorship- the presidential education plan, brought to you by Coca Cola®).
Regardless whether this is Trump’s real reason for running, I want people to think about this possibility. Sure, he might not do such a thing if he was elected, but he just might. Ask yourself, could you stomach having to watch Trump on TV even more than you already have to?
