Wow, everything old is new again. It has been a very long time since I did an American Chopper Weekly Rundown, but just like it is time to Make America Great Again, as somebody somewhere keeps saying, it is time to Make Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride Great Again too. And what better way than to bring back one of our all-time favorite blowhards?
Wait, am I talking about Paul Teutul Sr. or Donald Trump?
Frankly, what’s the difference?
-they have both been covered extensively in this blog- weekly rundowns of both American Chopper and The Celebrity Apprentice
-they both yell a lot
-Trump’s hair may or may not be any better than Paul Sr.’s neck beard
Trump also had the pleasure of firing Paul Sr. on The Apprentice, a pleasure I wish we could all have once in our lifetime.
Anyway, Paul Sr. today publicly made his endorsement for President: Bob Dole, who at age 92 is not running. Upon being informed of that fact, Paul officially endorsed Donald Trump in a video you can find on Trump’s Facebook page, twitter account, and pretty much anywhere else with his name slapped on it. It is understated and subtle, as befits these two quiet and dignified gentlemen.
In a video released to Facebook this afternoon, Paul Teutul Sr. urges everyone to vote Trump for president. In the short clip, Paul Sr. is shown in his workshop explaining how he first met Donald Trump on “The Tonight Show” and went on to work for the presidential candidate on “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
Talking about his experience on Trump’s reality show, Teutul says that “nothing but greatness” was expected from him, and that Trump also expects greatness from his family and the people around him.
While pointing at the camera, Teutul says that he believes Trump will make America great again and urges everyone to cast their vote for his former “Apprentice” boss. Trump posted the video on his own official Facebook page this afternoon.
I only wish I could see the bloopers and alternate takes. I bet he calls Hillary numb nuts and takes unnecessary shots at his son, Paul Jr.
Meanwhile, for another perspective, here is an unnecessary photo of Paul Sr. in a dress from an episode of American Chopper.
I can explain it but I won’t.
