He didn't really pursue it. He didn't go for the general election. His idea was seeing how much of the vote he appeared to hold, which was only about 7%. I'm sure if he was higher in the polls (like around 25%) he would have stuck it out even as lame as Perrot and the Reform Party are, but at 7%, it didn't make any sense to try.

I didn't even hear about it :lol:
This is getting more confusing by the post. He did run for reform party candidate, but somehow that doesn't count. I hope jeff sessions doesn't find you... ;) ;)

Well, it is what it is.

He didn't make a real go at it, and if you listen to that interview, he kept saying that it was an exploratory thing - they wouldn't know if it was worth a try until January or February.

Clearly, you can't run for the presidency if you can't get the votes, and he held on until he got a feel for what the numbers might be. You have to admit that 7% and relying on the backing of the "Reform Party" doesn't sound good.

The jokes about him running for the presidency are just that - jokes about him even considering a run, not him actually being a nominee and campaigning for the general election. As it turns out, he eventually got a lot higher in the polls than anyone would have believed.

You can't really count when someone steps in and sees if they can get a nomination as campaigning for the presidency when they could have gotten the nomination but quit. I'm just saying.

Puerto Rico should be a nuclear test site. No need to warn the natives. ;)
or make it a prison colony. cheaper than having to build shit. just unload all the prisons in america on the island and have the navy shoot anyone trying to escape.

After Hawaii emergency officials confirmed that an alert about an inbound ballistic missile was a mistake, they said the employee who pushed the wrong button feels awful about the panic-inducing incident.

The scene was unimaginable. People messaging their last good byes and taking shelter anywhere they could.

And true to form, Democrats, Liberals, and a variety of Hollywood celebrities have taken to Twitter to blame Trump. They seem to forget about Kim Jung Un, his announcement that he would nuke Washington D.C. during Obama's reign in the Presidency, and the test launches toward Japan and Guam. Apparently, they fell like no one would have believed the warning if Trump weren't in office.
