Today, Donald Trumpā€”an ambitious corn dog that escaped from the concession stand at a rural Alabama fairground, stole an unattended wig, hopped a freight train to Atlantic City and never looked backā€”entered the race for president, running as a Republican. The DNC promptly issued the following statement from press secretary Holly Shulman:

ā€œToday, Donald Trump became the second major Republican candidate to announce for president in two days. He adds some much-needed seriousness that has previously been lacking from the GOP field, and we look forward hearing more about his ideas for the nation.ā€œ

Ouch.
