Donald Trump To Imam Rauf: You’re Fired!

In a typically egomaniacal grab for publicity, Donald Trump today offered to ride to the rescue and purchase the site of the proposed “Ground Zero Mosque,” despite the fact that he considers the site a dog that has no place in the glittering portfolio of Trump condo towers.

“I’m a big believer in freedom of religion,” said Trump, who claims his offer--which was announced this afternoon via press release--would allow the site’s owner to realize “a nice profit.” His one-page letter offering to purchase the Park Place site ends with the sunny thought, “Hopefully, something good can happen!”

Trump’s lowball offer, of course, will be rejected quickly. Which probably will suit the developer, since his deals these days often just consist of him collecting fees from other developers who want to slap his name on condo projects.

So perhaps Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf might want to consider a licensing deal that could help grease the Park 51 project. Masjid al-Trump has a nice ring to it.

I think the previous poster had a great idea - wherever the mosque is built (gotta be somewhere south of Central Park, though) it is named the Trump Mosque. Has a nice ring to it
Trump's the only clown that's a bigger idiot than the FL preacher.
