I give you Donald Trump.
Usually early front runners in political races don't amount to much when it's time to cast votes in primaries that are still months off. Remember Herman Cain who was derailed by his harem of women who spilled all the tea about his extramarital affairs? The problem here is that Donald Trump has enough fame to keep himself relevant until the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire Primary. Donald Trump has enough money to bankroll his campaign himself even if he does not win the Republican nomination for Presidency. And Donald Trump has enough power, mostly begotten from his fame and money, to derail any political conversation to his own talking points so that he looks like the favorable candidate.
Remember it was Donald Trump's birther antics that forced President Obama to produce his long form birth certificate the weekend of the White House Correspondent's dinner in May 2011. Remember that's the same weekend the President approved a covert Seal Team 6 mission to take out Osama bin Laden. Donald Trump had enough fame, power, and money to make the Commander in Chief, who was commanding like a boss, to step away for a moment and address his foolish claims that maybe he wasn't an American citizen.
Fast-forward four years later and here we are with Donald Trump dominating the conversation about whatever it is he wants to talk about; mainly immigration and Megyn Kelly's incompetence. Not only does Donald Trump dominate the conservative political conservation, he has also overshadowed one time front runner and suggested shoe in for the Republican Presidential nomination Jeb Bush. In fact, this week Jeb turned into a babbling, bumbling, idiot getting tripped up in a conversation/argument about immigration and anchor babies. And let's not forget how Trump tried to clown Jorge Ramos in Iowa last night.
