At a synagogue just a few blocks from the tower that bears his name, Donald Trump cast a vote for himself for president of the United States of America, calling it an "easy decision," CNN reports. According to Politico, he also called voting for himself in Tuesday's New York primary "really something terrific." “It was a great honor, really. Who would have thought?” Trump said. “This was just a great honor, and I think it’s a great honor for New York." CNN points out Trump was able to vote for himself for the first time in his life (though that assumes he hasn't written himself in on every other ballot he's cast for the past 51 years—a rather risky assumption, all things considered). Trump boasts a massive lead over both John Kasich and Ted Cruz in the most recent New York polls. (More Donald Trump stories.)
