The hot rumor last night was that reality TV show star, Virginia property owner and comb-over champion of the world Donald trump was going to Nevada to endorse Newt Gingrich. Except it now looks like the Trumpster is going to endorse…Mitt Romney:
Donald Trump will endorse Mitt Romney for president here shortly after noon on Thursday, a source confirmed.
In typical Trump fashion, the endorsement up until the last minute had the flamboyant air of mystery — and chaos — associated with a man who is perhaps best known for firing people on prime time television. Wednesday night, reports were leaking out of Newt Gingrich‘s campaign that Mr. Trump was throwing his support behind Mr. Gingrich, and as late as Thursday morning, several news organizations, including Fox News, were still reporting that Mr. Gingrich was in line for Mr. Trump’s endorsement.
The Romney campaign did not release their public schedule until Thursday morning — a rarity for them — and even then their 12:30 p.m. slot (the time at which Mr. Trump is set to endorse) stood vague, offering only: “Romney for President Event. TBD Location. Las Vegas, Nevada.” Mr. Romney will appear with Mr. Trump at his Trump International Hotel & Tower here.
That ought to set tongues wagging.
