Billionaire chatterbox Donald Trump told Joe Scarborough this morning he is "absolutely thinking about" running for president in 2012. (Yesterday, Trump said he "did not know anything" about a poll in which his name was floated for president.) Considering Trump's past flirtations with elected office (he briefly pursued the Reform Party presidential nomination in 2000 and was mentioned as a possible GOP candidate for New York governor in 2006), Twitter was disinclined to take this newest proclamation seriously.
