Potential GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has been in the news lately for comments he made opposing same-sex marriage to the New York Times .  "It's like in golf," Trump told the paper. "... a lot of people are switching to these really long putters. Very unattractive. It's weird ... I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist. "  Last night on his NBC show, "The Celebrity Apprentice," Trump made more comments about homosexuality, which he refers to as "gayness.

Thirty years ago, on its opening day in 1984, Donald Trump stood in a dark topcoat on the casino floor at Atlantic City's Trump Plaza, crowing that his new investment was the finest building in Atlantic City and possibly the nation. Last week, the Trump Plaza folded and the Trump Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy, leaving some 1,000 employees without jobs. Mr. Trump, meanwhile, was on Twitter claiming he had "nothing to do with Atlantic City," and praising himself for his "great timing" in getting out of the investment.

A night after riffing on President Obama's budget plan, Jimmy Kimmel took on the easiest and most conceited target out there: The Donald, himself.  Kimmel's take: Trump isn't actually running for the presidency. It's all a publicity stunt and we're all unwitting passengers along for the ride. But he also took on some of the stupider things Trump has said.  "Trump said in a radio interview he has a good relationship with, and this is a quote, the blacks," Kimmel joked. "Well, not any more.

Donald Trump has taken Mitt Romney into his oily embrace, and let's hope it makes Mr. Romney's skin crawl because, if it turns out he actually does like hanging out with The Donald, we should fear for our country. Can you say "Vice President Donald J. Trump?" Kind of burns in the throat, doesn't it? To Mr. Trump's list of identities -- real estate shark, casino owner, reality TV star, serial monogamist and grandly self-impressed comb-over king -- we can add his stint as the weirdly entertaining clown who refuses to quit the 2012 election circus.

So Donald Trump is seriously considering a run for president in 2012 as a republican and I, for one, am strenuously encouraging him to do so. Imagine the hilarity and endless bombast that would accompany a Trump presidency: Trump firing the Senate. Trump getting in a shouting match with the United Nations. Trump putting a huge photo of his smiling face on the Washington monument.  The possibilities are endless. The Donald hasn't wasted any time getting the pomposity started. In an ABC News interview posted last night, Trump took on President Obama, House Speaker Boehner, Somalian pirates, and, of course, somehow found some time to compliment himself.

Tuesday night's "NBC Nightly News" led with a lengthy hatchet job on Donald Trump, the colorful, bombastic, ridiculously coiffed real estate tycoon and reality TV star who has emerged as an early contender for the Republican presidential nomination. That his TV stardom comes from his show "The Apprentice," which brings millions of dollars to the very network deciding to undress him publicly, is strange enough; but his appearance high in presidential preference polls is apparently sufficient to make the establishment and its media guardians a bit nervous.

Finally, someone in the TV news business told Donald Trump he's ridiculous. Now, if they would just stop giving him airtime. Wolf Blitzer, one of the most evenhanded interviewers in the news business, had enough of Trump playing his games of complaining about the press and making unsubstantiated accusations about political opponents like President Barack Obama. When Trump opened a telephone interview by criticizing the reporting done by CNN in setting up the interview, Blitzer called him out. Here's a key part of the transcript, and you can see video below of the exchange.

NEW YORK - In addition to real estate mogul, book author, fashion designer and reality-television personality, add teacher to the list of professions that Donald Trump is dabbling in these days. Trump launched his newest enterprise yesterday, an online company dubbed Trump University, promising seminars, courses and CD-ROMs designed for "practical education" for working business professionals. "When I make speeches, a lot of people show up," Trump said at a news conference at Trump Towers.

Rejected first draft of Donald Trump's final announcement about his political intentions in 2012. First, let me say how proud I am of myself for heckling Barack Obama until he produced the "long form" of his birth certificate, something no white president managing two wars and a budget crisis has ever been asked to do. At long last, the national debate can move on to other idiotic conspiracy theories, which I may or may not exploit to...

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has been castigated on the opinion pages for declaring that child labor laws "are truly stupid" and for suggesting that poor children be hired to clean the bathrooms of their schools in order to teach a work ethic they can't possibly learn at home because nobody there has a job. "Really poor children," he said at an Iowa fundraiser, "in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working, and have...

Remember when large portions of the country believed a fantasical conspiracy theory that Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States? And remember how they (and, in particular Donald Trump) were spectacularly embarrassed for believing in something so dumb?  Well, brace yourself. They still believe it!  Jerome Corsi (author of "Where's the Birth Certificate?") and Orly Taitz (who runs the "World's Leading Obama Eligibility Challenge Website") are still touting this nonsense  You would think with a struggling economy, outrageous debt and three unresolved wars, Obama's opponents would have fact-based arguments to make against him. Instead, this birther thing still inexplicably exists.  It all goes to prove this one undeniable fact: No matter what, crazy people will always be crazy.

I thought we were done with Donald Trump, but, no, he's back again, saying more crazy things and getting more attention. What sad, delusional things is he talking about now? What else? He's still claiming President Barack Obama's birth certificate is fake .  Before suckers start falling for this nonsense again (Trump had almost half of Republicans doubting Obama's birth certificate before), let's remind ourselves about the true nature of Donald Trump. Exhibit A: Comedian Amy Poehler's speech at Harvard yesterday.

A successful boss - or so at least one school of thought holds - hires the best possible people, pays them well and gives them free rein to do their jobs. As tonight's winner of The Apprentice will find out, Donald Trump isn't enrolled in that school. The high-rolling real estate developer, who through the NBC series has become perhaps the nation's most famous boss, does hire the best he can find, and he does pay handsomely in the executive ranks. But when it comes to those reins, some former employees say Trump can - and regularly does - tug on them, sometimes viciously.

PALM BEACH - In a private ceremony that sparked a public spectacle, billionaire Donald Trump got married here Saturday before holding a gala reception at his seaside estate that was bedecked with enough gold, diamonds and celebrity to rival the starry night. The public was not invited to the evening nuptials, but hundreds showed up anyway, lining the roadway in front of Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in hopes of spotting expected guests that included Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Katie Couric and New York Yankee Derek Jeter.
