Welcome to Certifiably Trump, a  special edition of 5?:5Min with Carl and Mike. 


This past year we’ve watched with shock and awe as theDonald, climbed to the top of the GOP pile. We, like many Americans, didn’t think it was possible that a man like theDonald could become the President of the greatest country on earth.

We felt we had to do something to make our fellow citizens aware of just how psychologically unfit theDonald is to be POTUS. So we listened to what He had to say, compared His boastful blusterings to what psychological experts like the Mayo Clinic define as Narcissistic Personality Disorder and put those findings on trading cards for the world to collect and share. 

Now we've put together a Kickstarter Campaign to get these cards out into the world. 

To introduce our Kickstarter Campaign we answer the five following questions...

1) How did you get the idea for theDonald trading cards?


2) Is the Donald really certifiable?


3)  Why trading cards?


4)  What should people do with the cards?


5)  What's your favorite card?

Help get our Certifiably Trump theDonald trading cards funded. Visit our Kickstarter Page at:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1916927229/certifiablytrump-thedonald-trading-cards?ref=category_location

Although we're exploring running for President (see our Platform for America at:  http://damnthatmakessense.com) we weren't invited to the recent Republican debate. Never fear, we've taken five key questions or ideologies from the debate and answered them here in five minutes (more or less -- accent on the more).

Tune in as we respond to the GOP ideology by answering the five following questions...

1) What's your greatest weakness?

2) 10% flat tax will skyrocket the deficit how would you make the numbers work?

3) How do you explain that your tax plan is similar to Ted Cruz?

4) Should the retirement age be raised to keep social security solvent?

5) Republicans argue that government rarely works better than the private sector. Hence the need to make govt as small as possible. Why are they wrong?

On a recent episode of The Ellen Show, Ellen interviewed Bernie Sanders by asking him several questions designed to loosen Bernie up. Candidates often go on talk shows like this to show their more human, playful side.

And to answer them in just five minutes. Tune in as we answer the following five questions...

1) If you had to be stranded on a desert island with one Republican candidate who would it be?

2) If you were at a karaoke bar and had one song to sing, what would it be?
