    The idea of Presidential candidates traveling to New York to kiss The Donald's ring is pretty silly.

    Chris Matthews is losing his mind over it right now, joined by Howard Fineman among others.

    But, why did I never hear people laugh at the idea of Democratic candidates going to Al Sharpton's National Action Network to kiss his ring.

    And now, Al is Chris' colleague on MSNBC.

    Does Al have more credibility than The Donald?

    We can play this game - Why did I never hear people laugh at the idea of GOP candidates going to Pat Robertson's 700 Club to kiss his ring? - all night.

    Instead, let's all agree with Ron Paul that attending a debate moderated by Trump and hosted by the conspiracy kooks at NewsMax is beneath the office of the president and no serious candidate should attend.

    It's horrible, but as you said, Democrats have been doing it to Jesse Jackson and Sharpton for ages.

    That still doesn't make it OK.

    December 5, 2011 4:40 PM Gingrich Kisses Donald Trump's Ring
    By Sarah Huisenga NEW YORK -- Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich paid a courtesy call on Monday to real estate magnate Donald Trump in what has become an obligatory stop for some GOP hopefuls in 2012. He called Trump "a genuine American icon."

    After their late-morning meeting, Gingrich said he and Trump discussed ways of creating jobs for poor children, an issue that got the candidate in hot water last week when he suggested that poor kids have no working role models except those that are "illegal." Gingrich said he asked Trump, the host of the reality show The Apprentice, to offer apprenticeships to 10 children in the poorest New York City schools.

    Trump said he would take Gingrich up on the idea and said of the candidate, "It's amazing how well he's doing and how (his campaign is) really resonated with so many people."

    I think it would be more appropriate for the candidates to kiss his hairdo.

    I don't think Trump has a chin.

    I imagine Trump and Newt's conversation going something like ...

    "No, I'm the smartest man in the room!"
    "No, I am the smartest man in the room!"

    Just ignore the asshole.

    Let him talk to the four walls.

    Even someone with his stunning lack of self-awareness will get the hint, after a while.

    People are scared of him and I don't blame them.

    He's an evil fuck and the media hangs on his every word. The candidates would rather kiss his ass than deal with the headache..

    I don't think the analogy works, but one could make the argument that as 'activists' Sharpton and Jackson influence a specific voting bloc.

    Trump has no constituency but Trump.

    True, but if you get on Trump's bad side, you'll blink and he'll be bashing you on every TV show in the country.
