An F-Bombshell of a Speech


Is this a big . . . you-know-what deal?

Real estate mogul Donald Trump may, or may not run for president.  But Thursday in Las Vegas, he was sure sounding like a someone who’s ready to jump into the race with both feet.  He did it with enough explicitives to call it a Rated R speech.

Once while discussing Iraq.

“We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can’t get a f***ing school in Brooklyn,” Trump says.

To the audience’s approval, while talking oil.

“We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you’re not going to raise that f****ing price,” he says.

And finally, while speaking about taxing Chinese goods.

“Listen you mother f***ers we’re going to tax you 25 percent,” Trump says.

Perhaps the GOP presidential candidate should pick Donald Trump as his running mate, just so he can debate Joe Biden in the vice-presidential debate and the pair can drop more F-bombs than Eddie Murphy in Raw.

Dennis Miller can moderate.
