There are good reasons to be extremely skeptical about Donald Trump’s claims that he is considering a presidential run. First off, his lack of political experience. Second, the fact that he has made similar claims many times in the past, reliably failing to follow through.
But Trump accepted a last-minute invitation to speak at CPAC, and he was introduced to some of the biggest cheers of any speaker today; someone yelled out, “you’re hired!” That reception may be explained by his celebrity more than anything. (He also got the biggest boos of the day when he said Ron Paul “has zero chance of getting elected.”)
Trump’s speech consisted mostly of Apprentice-style platitudes like: “I’m also well acquainted with winning, and that’s what this country needs right now: winning.” He described himself as pro-life, anti-gun control, and anti-ObamaCare.
Meanwhile, these fliers have appeared all over the Washington hotel where CPAC is being held:
The fliers were created by the gay conservative group GOProud. The attached website, shouldtrumprun.com, touts another flier that reads:
“It’s so cold outside … so where’s the global warming?
– Donald Trump
Don’t let our remaining factories and manufacturers (the ones that China and other countries didn’t destroy) become less competitive because of something that doesn’t exist.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
