Eye Roll

'Dump Donald Trump' Campaign Is a Sign It's Time for Him to Fade Into Oblivion (VIDEO)

donald trumpWe used to think he was a kick on The Apprentice, firing people right and left. We used to think it might be kinda cool to stay at one of his posh hotels. We used to listen to what he had to say, tweet, announce with a slight eye roll, not a case of full-on nausea. But it seems like in just a matter of a couple weeks, Donald Trump has gone from occasionally entertaining big mouth to one of the most loathed guys in the country.

In fact, as of this morning, some 465,000 people have signed a petition asking that Macy's "dump Trump" as a celebrity spokesman. Specifically, the signon.org petition denounces the mogul's "sexist behavior," denial of climate change, and endorsement of the "racially charged birther conspiracy." Nice. Of course, if you've paid any attention to the guy over the past four years, you know those wacko beliefs are just the tip of the twisted iceberg ...

The good news is that it looks like finally, fiiiinally, people are saying they're fed up with Trump!

Maybe his call on Obama to release his college transcripts and passport records last month -- no later than "by Halloween at 5 p.m.!" -- was the final straw? Maybe that was ridiculous and disrespectful enough to get people who were initially snickering to wake up and close the door on the out-of-control egomaniac? Seems like it to me! Gloriously, people on both sides of the aisle seem to be looking to shut up Trump -- those on the right feel who don't want him speaking for them and those on the left who are so over his increasingly crazy, bigoted stunts.

If Trump wants to maintain any hope of staying in the public's good graces and getting the attention he so desires, he'd be wise to get a clue and keep his big mouth shut about politics. Firing people on a reality competition show is one thing. But by trying every sleazy trick he can think of in a lame attempt to not only claim the spotlight but fire the President of the United States, he's gone way, way too far.

In case you missed it, here's his ridiculous proposal to President Obama that may have put him over the edge ...

Are you over Trump?

    I'm not familiar with any 'bigotry' he said. But he is annoying and needs to shut up. Its the fault of any media that goes to his press conferences.

    Co-signing your entire post Maressa! The problem with this country is people take advantage of Freedom of Speech and use it as a disguise to spew hatred. It's not like if these people (Trump, Coulter, Hannity, etc.) aren't given a platform the world will become a darker, more hateful place. It's quite the opposite. There's no need to feed bigotry, racism or anything that doesn't contribute positivity to an already dark world. Be smart with your words, don't misuse the privilege of voicing your opinions as an excuse to spread venom.

    I don't like anything that comes out of that pompous ass's mouth, be it political or not. From the nasty things he said about Rosie O'Donnell (even though I don't like her either), to his calling Kristin Stewart a "cheating dog"(like he has room to talk), to the shameless conspiracy theory mongering towards President Obama (even though I didn't vote for him), the man is just horribly offensive.

    This is the reason why America doesn't have a Republican president. Too many "republicans" spewing hatred, bigotry and stupidity. It turns people off.

    HIs remarks have been tremendously bigoted but I don't see him being fired. It seems the more outrageous people become, the more popular they are unless they cross one PC line he is probably untouchable.

    Anything that comes out of his mouth is uncalled for and he to me is nothing but a loud mouthed schnook!

    People with hair that bad and a face that ugly shouldn't be as hateful as he is. He really needs to just go away.

    Not only should he be removed from Macy,s, also from NBC,s program. This is what you would call a hidden racist,. As though the CIA,FBI the SECRET Service, they all belong to the PRESIDENT. A black President at that. If he was an illegal they would snatch that man so fast from the office. This stuff is so INSANE!!!!!.

    Oh, that reminds me: What was the big surprise he had in store for people just before the election?

    Well if his beliefs are the tip of the iceberg, then he's the Titanic, and no flotation device, nay, no comb-over raft, can save him.

    He's just such a buffoon and not to be taken seriously if only for the simple fact that he takes HIMself so seriously.
