Donald Trump might endorse Newt Gingrich. Does it matter?

Reports that Donald Trump will run for president with his hair as running mate are untrue. But he (Trump, not his hair) might endorse Newt Gingrich. If it's anything like the Herman Cain endorsement, which preceded Gingrich's 14-point drubbing in Florida (a state where Cain was a frontrunner until sex-scandals rendered his campaign impotent), Gingrich probably won't receive much benefit. After all, it's tough to bash "elites" and get the endorsement of a man who trademarks elitism.

The Hill:

Reality show host Donald Trump is set to endorse Newt Gingrich Thursday in Las Vegas, according to a report by the Associated Press....

Gingrich was coy when asked about the possibility Wednesday, saying he had  “no idea what the Donald is going to do.”

He is always interesting,” Gingrich said of Trump. “And I don’t know of anybody who does a better job of getting attention by announcing that he will presently announce something.”
