MSNBC: Hours before Donald Trump arrived for his Tea Party debut Saturday in Boca Raton, 68-year-old Jerry Hochfelsen was handing out hundreds of “Draft Trump” T-shirts. “He’s the man for today,” said Hochfelsen. A month ago, Hochfelsen, who has his own printing company, was having lunch, as he does every day, with his best friends – a physician and a fellow who does manufacturing. “We talk about politics, we talk about women. We talk a lot about women actually,” he recalled. “But a month ago we started talking about Trump running for president. So we each put up a few bucks and said let’s support him.” MORE

GARY BUSEY: I have great respect for Mr. Trump and I accept his choice with grace, kindness and understanding, and I departed in a trumphair_1.jpgvery happy mood.

I can turn a thunderstorm or a tornado into a rainbow and I’m flying over the rainbow tonight. MORE
