(Newser) – Assuming Donald Trump's tweet is as good as his word, a Buffalo bus driver is about to get a nice reward for rescuing a suicidal woman. Trump tweeted that he intends to give Darnell Barton $10,000 for his actions, reports WIVB-TV. "The bus driver who saved the woman from jumping off the bridge was really cool, great guy," he wrote. "I'm going to send him $10,000-he deserves it!" If you missed the original story, Barton stopped his bus when he spotted a woman who looked ready to jump from a bridge overpass into traffic. He calmly got her off the ledge and stayed with her until help arrived.

And his Grinchy little heart grew 3 sizes that day... But being the arrogant ass that he is, he had to let the world know about it so we'll think he's a great guy. We know better.

What's everyone's problem with Trump. Who cares if he did it as a publicity stunt, the fact of the matter is this guy knows how to keep people talking about him. If the side effect is it brings some publicity to this bus driver and some spending money for him and his family its a good thing. Please do not call me Mr. Joshua.

Did you ever notice Trump's mouth, when he's talking, looks like a hemorrhoidal azzhole? (See the accompanying picture.) :)
