    Without devolving into left/right talking points rhetoric; a "My side is with the angels, yours performs analingus on the Dark Lord" back-and-forth, moral absolutist slapfest; OR screaming "Bernie was robbed!!" through unbrushed spittle, I request you answer simple question:

    Do you think Donald J. Trump actually wants to be president?

    As big of an ego as he has, and with a real chance to actually win? Yeah, I think he wants it.

    I don't think he had any notions of actually getting the nomination at the start, but he rode the wave to it, and now we're at where we are.

    I think he wants to win the presidency. Sort of like a trophy wife or a really big, gaudy casino. However, like maintaining a trophy wife or a really big, gaudy casino, he does not want to be President. That is what the "help" is for.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised to find out in his tell all memoirs after his 2nd term that he started running as a bet made at a yacht club party among billionaires, and it just spun out of control.

    He wants it. He has no idea what to do with it if he wins, but he wants it.

    If that is true, why do you think he's refusing and ignoring all advice about how to get it?
