Listeners to today’s show ended up with a special treat! Donald Trump announced his candidacy during the radio show! While The Donald usually does a good job making a joke of himself, Glenn couldn’t help but unleash the mockery. There aren’t many people who make Jeb Bush look like a good candidate - but Donald Trump certainly is one of them.
"We're not sure if he's going to announce that he's running for president. Maybe another divorce. Maybe he's filing for bankruptcy. Maybe he's announcing a new luxurious something. I don't know," Glenn joked before the announcement.
Trump has alluded to running for president over the past couple of years, but he's finally doing it. And as the speech unfolded for several minutes, it wasn't clear if he was even going to announce. The crowd was loud and unruly, and Trump meandered for a while through odd stories and tangents.
"Ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States. And we are going to make our country great again,” Trump said. "I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created. I'll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places. I’ll bring back our jobs and I’ll bring back our money."
