Presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Barack Obama sparred last night in a 90-minute debate viewed by an estimated 40 million Americans.

Of all the fruitcake reality TV “stars” in America, Trump was the only one referenced by both candidates — further fueling his already bulbous ego, and acknowledging that he is somehow relevant to the national discussion on, well, anything.
And “The Donald” — who suffers from something we refer to as “Arpaio Syndrome” — is lovin’ the attention.
