Does Joan Rivers know something about our future possible President?
Back on January 28, I spoke to Joan at length about her new WEtv show with daughter Melissa, and at the end of the interview, she told me she wanted The Donald to be The Commander-in-Chief.
Transcript from the exclusive interview:
Monsters and Critics: Well... Will we see you on the Celebrity Apprentice? I love how Donald Trump brings you in as sort of like the wild card to kind of juice up the action. Will you be on?
Joan Rivers: Well, I love the Apprentice and I love Donald. He calls me in, I'm there.
Joan Rivers: I think he should be president. I think he is president, Bloomberg is vice president, and they clean up this country.
M&C: Interesting. Well, on that note, Joan, thank you so much for your time.
And now, here's Donald Trump, who today says it's a possibility. Trump was at CPAC on Thursday, and despite booing from Ron Paul supporters, frosted at his wake up call to them about Paul's ballot box stink, he is considering a run for POTUS.
CPAC is the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, where the right in every stripe, from Barry Goldwater-esque fiscal conservatives mix it up with Tea Party people and the religious right.
Speaking to a packed room that was not welcoming Trump's presence at the conference, Trump played to the cold crowd with bravado and boastful cheer about the "billions of dollars" he has made and suggested it be a "scorecard" for how good a candidate he might be.
Trump played up his CV, about attending the "best business school." He also said he would make the world respect America again if he were in charge.
But when he laid the boom on the Paul backers, the crowd let him have it. "Ron Paul cannot get elected," and then said that he liked Paul, but told the crowd they essentially needed to wake up and get real.
Trump also noted he is against abortion rights and gun control and said he would fight to repeal President Obama's health care bill.
"If I decided to run, I will not be raising taxes, we'll be taking [back] hundreds of billions of dollars from other countries that are screwing us, we'll be creating vast numbers of productive jobs, and we'll rebuild out country so that we can be proud," Trump said. "Our country will be great again."
