Speaking on CNBC's Squawk Box, Donald Trump announced that he had sold his prized home in Palm Beach for $100 million. Trump had originally listed the home at $125 million. According to RISMedia, a CNBC commentator asked him "Are you going to make the Russian who bought your house put up an American flag, like the big controversy you had with the town?" The commentator was referring to one of Trump's lame publicity stunts from a few years back, where he made a big stink about a town law that prevented him from flying a gaudily large American flag at his Mar-A-Lago club in the same town.

Trump answered the interviewer's question with this thoughtful and politically correct comment: "I think what I'll do is I will demand that he puts up the American flag - and the Russian flag can fly right under it."

Well isn't that wonderful. It's a good thing that we have a guy who's been married three times, gets in cat fights with Rosie O'Donnell, sits at the top of a failing Atlantic City casino empire, and plans to host a reality show featuring former prostitutes here to promote patriotism.
