Capping a round of unparalleled media saturation that began with his Miss USA pardon, then quickly segued into his well-documented musings on Rosie O'Donnell's unbecoming height-weight ratio, the underwhelming premiere of Apprentice: L.A., and his conspicuous, NBC-underwritten presence at last night's Golden Globes, comes the cherry on top of Donald Trump's overexposure sundae: a star on the Walk of Fame.
"It really has been a special moment in my life," Trump said in a live TV broadcast of the event on sunsplashed Hollywood Boulevard. [...]
Trump's baby son, Barron, almost managed to steal the show as his dad held him at the podium.
"He's strong, he's smart, he's tough, he's vicious, he's violent — all of the ingredients you need to be an entrepreneur, and most importantly, hopefully he's smart because smart is really the ingredient," Trump said.
Trump then handed his Pit Baby back to his Slovenian succubus bride, and proceeded to whip away the tarp hiding a scale model of his plans for his newly acquired real estate. The 45-story Trump Star Tower will unquestionably be the greatest, most outstanding high-rise L.A. has ever seen, making up for in verticality what it lacks in square footage (slightly less than four per floor), with spectacular city views of the Hollywood Basin and a rooftop deck floored with the original star, and characteristically featuring Trump's name in gold letters polished to a gleaming sheen.
