Ladies and gentlemen, it’s official. Donald Trump is running for President of the United States.

Threats had been made to disrupt the vote in some way by staunch GOP members who remain vehemently opposed to Trump’s nomination, however it would appear that those sectors of the party are now resigned to Trump being the party’s nominee.
Such a great honor to be the Republican Nominee for President of the United States. I will work hard and never let you down! AMERICA FIRST!

That “never let you down” quip, combined with wife Melania Trump‘s deeply weird and definitely stolen speech yesterday, really just adds weight to the theory that Trump’s entire tilt at the White House is a goddamned giant Rick Roll.
