Well, it looks like the Republican race to 2016 has yet again turned a new trick. Call Donald Trump’s cell phone. Yes, I tried it, it sounded like it was being slammed. I received a very fast busy signal, like the end of the world and all circuits busy kind of thing. Story below extracted from Gawker.
Last month, American reality show entertainer turned American political system entertainer Donald Trump publicized presidential rival Sen. Lindsey Graham’s cell number, urging his supporters to “try it.” In the spirit of open and fair political debate, we now bring you Trump’s number.
After sharing Graham’s digits at a campaign rally—he held it up printed on a large note card for all to see and read the number aloud—Trump joked “you know he won’t fix anything, but at least he’ll talk to you.” Graham responded by comically destroying his compromised cell phone on video.
Since Trump, in his considered political judgement, has decided that opening up a direct, personal channel of communications between his supporters and his primary opponents is a noble campaign tactic, we think it’s only fair and right that Republican primary voters be able to reach out to Trump himself. If it is the case—as Trump’s release of Graham’s number implicitly argues—that our political discourse improves when voters can ring up candidates on their private cell phones, then we are happy to add Trump’s cell phone number to the body of public knowledge. You can reach Donald Trump at 917-756-8000.
