Trump Likely Canceling Dopey Debate Nobody’s Showing Up To

Boy, the ego just won’t be able to handle this.

With the wheels coming off the GOP debate he is supposed to host, Donald Trump admitted Friday that he’s looking into canceling the sparsely-attended forum.

But Trump, in a typical display of chutzpah, said there’s another reason why he might pull the plug – he still may run for President.

“If the Republican, in my opinion, is not the right candidate [to defeat President Obama\],” Trump declared, “I am unwilling to give up my right to run as an independent candidate.”

The Donald had blamed TV equal-time provisions that prohibited him from simultaneously running for President and hosting NBC’s “The Apprentice” until the show’s May season finale for bowing out of the race.

He also claimed that several GOP candidates told him they’d only do the December 27 debate if Trump vowed to not launch a late bid for the White House once “The Apprentice” was off the air.

Trump refused.

“I must leave all of my options open,” the flamboyant real estate magnate said in a statement released Friday, “because above all else, we must make America great again!”

Only two of the Republican White House hopefuls, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, have agreed to the Trump debate, which is slated to be held just days before the Iowa caucus.

Guess that last bi chance for Santorum will pass him by.

    Oddly, Wolf Blitzer is qualified to host a debate with the GOP candidates and a week later he is interviewing Kermit the frog and Donald Trump, one of the most sucessful men in America is not qualified? That opinion is just plain stupid.

    Maybe Newt and Santorum aren’t as smart as they think they are…Looks like they’ve been punked.
