Donald Trump wants to run for president. Meghan McCain wants to be taken seriously. In their attempts to do these things, they made the mistake of turning to each other. For her fifth question in her remarkable, amusing interview with Trump, McCain asked him for a job. The reality star--who's declared bankruptcy multiple times and, at one point, had to fire 370 people from his casino and airline--said he'd love to have her. He then asked McCain--whose own father's losing campaign wouldn't tell her who his vice-presidential pick was--for advice on Republican pollsters and early primary states. Perhaps both Trump and McCain should be looking elsewhere for advice if they know what's best for them.
Before the interview, McCain had asked her Twitter followers to suggest questions to ask the supposed presidential candidate. Responses flooded in. Among them:
- "How does Trump feel about our public education system and how could it be improved?"
- "Ask him how he plans to halt hydraulic fracturing for natgas due to groundwater contamination"
- "Ask Trump if he's going to release a new edition of his awesome board game."
- "When's he going to get off this 'birther' non-issue?"
