HOLLYWOOD — As reported in yesterday’s Politico by Henry C. Jackson, Donald Trump’s star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame is the frequent recipient of dog poop, spit, and other forms of attempted mutilations, resulting in a petition by website Care2 to have it removed (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/05/trump-a-star-is-scorned-223661). Unfortunately, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce won’t remove it because Trump, like other so-called stars, paid $30,000 to have his star there, and that grandiose fee includes necessary cleanup. No Hollywood Walk of Fame star has ever been removed after protests. Similar protests were lodged against Bill Cosby’s star, but that one is still there, too.
Discussing the Golden State’s upcoming June 7 primary with a solitary reporter, Gov. Jerry Brown, a good Democrat, said, “It’s neck and neck between Hillary and Bernie, but a lot of my Republican friends would really like it if Schwarzenegger were running for president instead of Trump.”
“It’s been a long time since Arnold left office under a cloud, but don’t forget, SR, this is California, which is supposed to be the centerpiece of the American Dream."
“Too bad I have to tell them that Arnold was born in Austria, so he’s not eligible.”
Interviewed by CNN’s Ana Cabrera, former Kansas senator and 1996 Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole, 92, said that Trump should apologize to the GOP’s 2008 presidential standard-bearer, Sen. John McCain, for dissing him for having been captured by the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam war. And Dole suggested that Trump pick Newt Gingrich as his running mate.
Our associate solitary reporter, John Jones, asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about Dole’s recommendation of Gingrich for vice president. McConnell, immediately remembering how his Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives forced Gingrich to resign his Speakership in 1998 because of Gingrich’s flagrant ethics violations, waddled as rapidly as he could to his bar, which is stocked with nothing but the best Kentucky bourbon. After taking his first desperate gulp, McConnell immediately called Dole and told him to cool it. The Bluegrass State’s senior senator then called Trump and said, “Donald, remember how Dick Cheney was the greatest vice president in the history of our nation?”
“Donny, I will be your Dick Cheney.”
“It’s our only best hope after you ran roughshod over Ted, Kasich, Marco, Chris, Carly, Jeb, Rand, and even, for a moment or two, Ben."
