Jerry Springer, the American television host and broadcaster, has played down Donald Trump's chances of becoming the President of the United States. Jerry Springer dismissed the multimillionaire as being the Republican's "flavor of the month" and claims no right wing candidate will oust Barack Obama from the White House.
Speaking to Popeater's ROB SHUTER, Springer said, "Remember when you were a little kid and a wise guy at the back of the class would shout things out? That's Trump. He makes you laugh and giggle". The 67-year-old added, "Right now, Trump is enjoyable. Sarah Palin is no longer the flavor of the month, so Trump is". Neither Trump nor Palin have confirmed their candidacy for the 2012 Presidential Election and Springer says neither will be powerful enough to remove the current President from office, saying, "I don't think any of these people are going to beat Obama. Republicans have overreached. Do we really want a country without Medicare? We have a class war going on at the moment. The powerful are stacking the deck in favor of the rich, which is why the gap is getting wider between the rich and poor".
Jerry Springer backed down from a potential run for the Senate back in 2003, partly because of the reputation of his talk show. The program, which first aired in 1991, quickly became one of the most watched in America. When asked why the show had survived for so long, the 67-year-old said, "It's so stupid. Our niche is outrageous, so we are not competing with anyone".
