Walking orange cat toy Donald Trump took to social media on Monday to announce that he was going to make a major announcement on Tuesday morning. It is widely assumed that The Donald will finally make it official and toss his name into an already overflowing field of would-be Republican contenders for the 2016 GOP Presidential nomination. It has also been reported by the Washington Post that Trump will release financial statements claiming that he has $9 billion in assets, presumably as a way of letting everyone know that he has the ability to self-finance his campaign.

Trump, in his typical braggadocios style, has talked shit about the other Republican candidates in the field, claiming that he is the only one that can lead this country to greatness and so forth. (He’s also stated that he’s the only one who knows how to take out ISIS, but that dumbass Obummer won’t even call him to ask about his plan.) Shortly after making his announcement about his upcoming announcement, Trump posted a pic of Jeb Bush with Dubya, saying America doesn’t need another Bush.
I have roughly the same chance of getting elected POTUS that Trump does. However, with Jeb making it official Monday, and seemingly every day accompanied by some politico announcing their candidacy, Trump feels like now is the time to strike in order to get some of that much, much, much needed attention he so craves.
And, it is entirely possible that he won’t even announce his candidacy. Instead, he could do what he does best, which is troll us by claiming he has a bunch of money on hand and that he will donate a bunch to the GOPer that kisses his ass the most. Basically, give the Repubs another billionaire to cozy up to.
In other words, The Donald’s gonna Donald.
