Donald Trump's latest flirtation with a presidential campaign was about as sound as his signature blow-dry.

Obama produced the document in question, and Trump called off the political sideshow when he had to face a sobering choice: run for President, or renew his NBC reality show. Now all that Americans have to endure is the parade of real Republican presidential candidates who are making a pilgrimage to New York City to kiss the Donald's ring.
