One Promise Trump Made But Didn’t keep — Rescue Richard Simmons

Back in March, during a radio interview on the Jonathon Brandmeier Show, The Donald was asked about Richard Simmons.

At the time, the “Sweatin’ to the Oldies” maestro, was M.I.A. There were a lot of strange rumors about fitness guru Richard, from his housekeeper had kidnapped him to he became a woman.

Friends of the "Sweatin' to the Oldies" star say they fear he's being held against his will by his housekeeper.

The calamity was resolved when Simmons told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, “I just kind of wanted to be a little bit of a loner for a while. Right now I just sort of want to just take care of me.”

Great. So everything was resolved.


However, while the Richard Simmons hysteria was electrifying the county, Jonathan Brandmeier asked Donald Trump,

“If you are elected president, will you release Richard Simmons from his hostage situation?”
“We have to get him out. We have to get him out,” Trump said. “No question.”

What would have happened, if Richard Simmons was still missing and Donald Trump became president. I’m not sure which of those scenarios is more frightening.

Actually, I do know. Sorry Rich.


Would the Donald order a special ops team to bring back Richard Simmons? Would he kick the door in himself?

Or maybe it was a joke. And he never had any intentions to save this American legend.

What other promises has The Donald made that he doesn’t plan on keeping? Because if he was making such promises to garner popularity and votes, what other promises has he made that seem as grandiose as that?

I will leave it up to you. Here is a list of promises Trump made on the campaign trail. If he became president, which ones do you think would become reality?
