Bernard Goldberg: A Source Says Donald Trump Has Made Up His Mind To Run For President

Reported by Ellen - April 4, 2011 -

Furthering Fox News’ Trump-a-Palooza, Bill O’Reilly made media coverage of Donald Trump’s potential presidential candidacy the focus of his weekly chat with Bernard Goldberg tonight. But before they got to the inevitable griping about the media, Goldberg announced that someone “in a position to know” told him earlier that “Donald Trump has made up his mind and that as of today, barring any unforeseen circumstances, he will - he will run for the nomination, the Republican nomination for president of the United States. That’s as of today and that’s barring any unforeseen circumstances.”

After Goldberg announced his scoop, he explained why he doesn’t think the media will treat Trump fairly. One reason is that they don’t think he’ll actually run and the other, according to Goldberg, is because the media is too elite and insular. Never mind Trump’s disgusting stunts about Obama’s birth certificate. Real Americans, according to Bernie, love The Donald because he’s not a politician but a businessman (just pay no attention to those bankruptcies behind the curtain, though). Goldberg said:

What they don’t understand is that millions of Americans who live between Manhattan and Malibu think that Donald Trump’s greatest asset is that he’s not a politician, that he doesn’t talk like a politician or think like a politician and that he is a businessman and most politicians couldn’t run a lemonade stand. That’s the disconnect between the journalists who will be covering Donald Trump and the people they’re reporting for, the people who live in the United States of America.

So if Trump deserves to be treated with more seriousness than the media is likely to give him, why did Goldberg throw out this less-than-respectful tweet about Trump’s decision? "source tells me donald trump will enter race for president ... barring some unforeseen event, the donald will toss his hair into the ring."

What’s that about people in glass houses again?
