So…Donald Trump has thrown his hat in the ring for president in 2016. Why am I mistrustful that this is real?

I mean, didn’t he hype up running in both 2000 and 2012 only to not do it? It’s possible he was serious and merely decided against it then, but it’s also possible he was just messing with us. He might be serious now and wasn’t then, or he could be just more committed to messing with us this time.

I can’t be sure.

After all, there are so many ways he could be messing with us. He could be doing this to get publicity for his shows or other endeavors. He could be putting pressure on other candidates. He could simply like fooling portions of the populace.

It’s just too hard to say right now. Trump is Trump, and I don’t always know what that means. Regardless, I’m skeptical that things are as plain as he is putting them forth. Trump is a crafty man.
