President The Donald Trump: Imagine This Freak Show for Just a Minute

Imagine for a moment that the Year is 2013.  As American luck would have it the Mayans line of crap regarding the certain end to our world come December 2012 was a complete load of bullshit.  Amazingly enough, a complete end of the world as we know it via earthly doom would be better than what we face on...
