Due to all the candidates bailing competing interests, professional blowhard Donald Trump will no longer moderate a GOP presidential debate in Iowa later this month.

Trump explained he is pulling out of the event for two made-up reasons:

  1. He's not convinced there's a strong enough Republican challenger in the field.
  2. He wants the option to run himself (which he won't, but often threatens to).

In reality, several leading candidates had already made it clear they wouldn't participate in a debate moderated by Trump. Ron Paul basically called it circus-like and beneath the presidency. Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, and Michele Bachmann also declined to attend.

Trump called them all cowards, saying it is "very important to me that the right candidate be chosen to defeat the destructive Obama Administration, but if that Republican, in my opinion, is not the right [one], I am not giving up my right to run as an Independent."

"Therefore, so that there is no conflict of interest within the Republican Party, I have decided not to be the moderator of the Newsmax debate."

Now that is 100 percent BS. Still, do you think he should run?

Donald Trump will moderate a debate between Republican Presidential hopefuls on December 27. There's just one problem:

Only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are currently scheduled to show up.

With Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman having already turned down the invitation, Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry added their negative RSVPs this week, prompting The Donald to say these candidates are "scared" and that he may need to run against them after all.

"The Republicans are afraid of me running as an Independent," Trump tells TMZ. They’re all afraid. The only person NOT afraid is Newt... There are two reasons that these candidates are backing out of my debate. One, some just aren’t courageous people. Two, some are concerned that I may run as an Independent. They want me to give up ... and I’m NOT giving up."

We're not so sure, Don. Have you seen this Rick Perry ad?!? Say what you want about the man, but he isn't afraid to look like a moronic homophobe.

Trump for President?

As if the Republican presidential race didn't already feel like a a reality show, Donald Trump is pairing up with conservative magazine and website Newsmax to moderate a presidential debate in Des Moines, Iowa, on December 27.

“Our readers and the grassroots really love Trump,” said Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy.

That they do, hilariously. From an entertainment standpoint, can you not?

Greatest. Presidential. Debate. Ever.

Trump’s role in the debate, which will be broadcast on the cable network Ion Television, marks another memorable moment in a primary season that has been an unpredictable, publicity-driven, circus-like spectacle for months now.

The Donald toyed with running for president earlier this year and ran his mouth about Barack Obama's birth certificate until he was blue in the face. He ultimately declined against getting into the race and has not endorsed a candidate.

The debate, which will not be limited to a specific topic like national security or the economy, is set to happen just a week before the Iowa caucuses, and will be called the Newsmax Ion Television 2012 Presidential Debate.

Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman have already declined invitations to participate, with the former bashing the event as beneath the office of the presidency. Herman Cain dropped out of the race yesterday, so he won't be there either.

Jon Stewart is facing Donald Trump's wrath (been too long since we heard from him on political matters) after making what the latter calls a "racist rant" about Herman Cain.

Specifically, Trump took issue with the comedian's commentary on the GOP presidential candidate's confusing denial of sexual harassment charges during the 1990s.

Stewart likened Cain's answer to being asked "Have you ever kidnapped a baby?" only to respond, "No. Well, other than the Lindbergh baby." Funny? Not to Trump ...

Trump was upset about Stewart's imitation of Herman Cain, saying, "It's not what he said, but the way he said. The tone of his voice, the inflection. Unbelievable."

He called out officials saying they're letting Stewart "get away" with it.

"Other people get taken off the air, and when he [Stewart] says it, people smile and sort of say, 'Wow, I can't believe he gets away with that,'" Trump explained.

Trump said others are lambasted for non-political correctness, but never Stewart, even if he does "a horrible, horrible thing to the African-American community."

Whether or not this constitutes "horrible" is a matter of opinion, clearly. But maybe Don should look back at a certain pot-stirring crusade he waged not long ago.

On the flip side, Stewart does go after certain people harder than others, and with a very different style. If that's the Donald's point, it's not totally off base.

Jon's primary target seems to be media coverage of Cain, not the Republican candidate himself, though. Is Trump overreacting or was Stewart just offensive?

It's hard to believe that years ago, The Apprentice was a top-rated, serious show (as serious as a reality show starring Donald Trump can be anyway).

The quality may have fallen off faster than Trump's non-campaign for President after Obama's birth certificate was released, but hey, it's still on!

The teams were spotted in N.Y. City this week for their first challenge, selling sandwiches, appearing to be divided by gender as was the case last season.

Donald and Bret

Who will be the next Bret Michaels?!

The list of C-list stars set to compete next spring includes American Idol star Clay Aiken, Real Housewife of N.J. Teresa Giudice and Aubrey O'Day.

Beyond that, if you know who all these people are, we're impressed.

Can anybody match NeNe Leakes' fights with LaToya Jackson and Star Jones in terms of drama? And less importantly, who will win the grand prize?

They worked together on Celebrity Apprentice, with Bret Michaels taking home the grand prize.

Now, sources tell The New York Post that this rocker and Donald Trump may team up for another reality TV experience: Something To Believe In, which woud feature Michaels traveling across the country and assisting those under adverse conditions.

The former Poison frontman, who used to be known as a walking STD, has become a source for inspiration after overcoming a brain hemorrhage last year and undergoing heart surgery in January.

A rep for The Donald told the newspaper that Trump "thinks Bret is a wonderful guy" and would "consider" another realty program with the star.

Crystal Harris, meanwhile, is shopping her own series to various networks.

NYC real estate mogul Donald Trump posted his thoughts on the Anthony Weiner photo scandal on YouTube today. Let's just say he does not mince words.

The embattled Congressman, who made no secret of aspiring to run for New York City Mayor, is a "psycho" and a "bad guy," according to The Donald.

Laying into Weiner for sending lewd pics to Ginger Lee and others, Trump says he had a "death wish" and should never be allowed to run for office. Ever.

The silver lining, according to Trump? You gotta watch and see:

Jon Stewart has had enough of Donald Trump.

Because the real estate mogul perpetuated the absurd claim that Barack Obama is not an American citizen? No. Because he teased a Presidential run simply to garner ratings for his reality show? That's not why.

Because he hung out with Sarah Palin in New York City this week? You're getting closer.

But The Daily Show host didn't go off on Trump last night for hosting the Fox News correspondent. Instead, he took MAJOR issue with the way in which Trump snubbed the city of his (supposed) birth, from ignoring classic NYC eateries to using a fork on his pizza. Watch Big Apple pride and anger swell inside Stewart in the following, hilarious segment:

In the greatest meeting of political minds since ... you know what, it's not important. But Donald Trump and Sarah Palin met at a pizza joint in NYC yesterday!

Trump loves the former Alaska Governor, too. Mostly because she loves him so much, or so he claims in gushing about his favorite topic (himself) to Fox.

Palin would "love" for Trump to run for president in the next election cycle, he claimed on Fox & Friends this morning. Here's one of his choice quotes:

Trump met Palin during her stop in New York City. The Thrilla From Wasilla kicked off a tour of the eastern U.S. at the Rolling Thunder rally last weekend.

Both big-name Republicans have been talked about as presidential hopefuls, though Trump recently bowed out and Palin doesn't appear interested.

Like Trump, she basks in the attention, but you can get that merely by acting like you might entertain the idea of running, so why actually bother?

In any case, the admiration is mutual. Trump called Sarah Palin a "terrific woman and a terrific friend" who he hoped would seek the GOP nomination.

Someone start printing the Palin-Trump 2012 t-shirts!!

Is Donald Trump's non-existent presidential bid ready to exist after all?

The billionaire business mogul phoned into Fox News' Fox & Friends (he's not gonna call MSNBC, people) Monday to lament the state of the GOP field.

Anthony Weiner Picture

He took issue with Mike Huckabee exiting the race for the Republican nomination, saying he's sure Huckabee could win - and that Trump could too.

Trump refused to rule out a late entry. "Who knows if I did the right thing," he said of declining to run. "I am not seeing a lot out of the candidates."

"I can't rule out anything ... [It's] vital we choose the right person, and at this moment, I don't see that person ... I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election."

Is anyone out there buying it? Does even Trump buy his own BS?

It's hard to see him mounting a serious run, given the allegations of racism he already faced hammering away at his signature "birther" issue - which is now off the table. But he does have business experience ... relevant or not.

What do you think? Should Trump run for President?
