  3. - Anonymous - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 2:46 pm:

    “horses ass” has to be part of the caption somewhere.

    It’s just… so orange.


  8. - Sir Reel - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 2:53 pm:

    This salad is HUGE.


  9. - Bluefish - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 2:53 pm:

    Since Trump hosts a pseudo-game show, in the spirit of the old Match Game on TV…
    “He said he won’t put me on Celebrity Apprentice, but he did autograph my BLANK”.


  10. - walker - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 2:54 pm:

    “Don’t look now, but Donald’s staring at you.”


  11. - Rich Miller - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 2:54 pm:

    Lemme get this straight, Paul Green thought he was doing me a favor by putting me at this table?


  12. - D.P.Gumby - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 2:55 pm:

    “Look, the carrot strips in the salad spell out ‘Trump’”


  13. - MrJM - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 2:59 pm:

    “Donald Trump?!? I was told this was a campaign event for Vermin Supreme!”

    – MrJM

  15. - No Longer A Lurker - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:00 pm:

    “I wonder how many people here are being paid to listen to Donald speak?”


  16. - zonz - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:01 pm:

    “Exactly how large is the T R U M P sign on your building here?”


  17. - Formerly Known As... - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:01 pm:

    Donald, we’re just asking for a loan. Say $4 bil?


  18. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:02 pm:

    Munger, “So, this is what you get for disagreeing on ‘fair share’?”


  19. - the Other Anonymous - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:03 pm:

    Leslie Munger definitely wore it best.


  20. - Formerly Known As... - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:03 pm:

    Trump Tower was booked?


  21. - downstate commissioner - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:03 pm:

    I hope she is not serious about backing him; she had impressed me so far.
    “I passed up a good home-cooked family dinner for this? to hear him? Maybe I should rethink this political gig…Hey! Where’s Bruce?”


  22. - vole - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:03 pm:

    Trumpster diving.


  23. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:05 pm:

    While a seat was left for Mr. Trump, he just couldn’t tear himself away from the cameras.


  24. - Albany Park Patriot - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:05 pm:

    “No salsa?”


  25. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:07 pm:

    Mr. Trump bought one chair at every table, so the whole room had Trump… sitting at their table.


  26. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:08 pm:

    The usually savvy Trump forgot the extra seat-filler to take his chair when he went up to speak…


  27. - ChrisB - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:08 pm:

    “The real crime here is that this man is considered a legitimate presidential candidate by my party.”


  28. - northshore cynic - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:10 pm:

    I was told this was the Rich Miller holiday speech!!


  29. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:10 pm:

    Donald Trump’s ego kept the empty seat warm.


  30. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:11 pm:

    Others ate as Donald Trump used the famous “football”


  31. - Arthur Andersen - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:12 pm:

    “I’m an Illini, but I may never ever be able to sing “Hail to the Orange” after today!”


  32. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:14 pm:

    Donald Trump forgot where he was to sit, someone removed the large “TRUMP” letters on it.


  33. - Stuff Happens - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:18 pm:

    “Evelyn Sanguinetti was going to sit here instead, but, well, you know.”


  34. - A guy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:19 pm:

    “You misunderstood me. I came to talk to the business community about a HUNGER problem in the city. Where’s the starving kid I was supposed to sit with?”


  35. - TROOPER - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:19 pm:

    I wonder if he knows NBC just dropped him?


  36. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:20 pm:

    Donald Trump was delayed by Jay Doherty, and …the powerful Chairman of the City Finance Committee Ald. Burke and …his wife Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke and “The Donald” was over the moon…


  37. - A guy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:21 pm:

    The room turned out to be way too small for my greatness. We had to downsize everything, including special guests.


  38. - Wensicia - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:22 pm:

    “I’ll just keep my head down and nobody will remember I was here…Darn that Korecki!!”


  39. - A guy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:23 pm:

    DT: “Pardon me for being late. I ran into this guy named Willy. Let’s just say he wasn’t brief.”


  40. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:23 pm:

    The seat was for Commissioner Fritchey, but… well, they have a dress code…


  41. - Stones - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:29 pm:

    “This is the best $250 dollar salad I have ever had!”


  42. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:31 pm:

    Trump was late, asking if the Stanley Cup wanted a selfie with him…


  43. - Anonin' - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:31 pm:

    IF I am not recognized then no one can ask me about Trump’s little dust up with NBC…it is my confederate flag moment!


  44. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:37 pm:

    Trump was delayed, as he was unseat there is no Meigs Field anymore…


  45. - William j Kelly - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:39 pm:

    I guess the states financial situation really isn’t that bad if the comptroller can take the afternoon off for bread and circuses.


  46. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:41 pm:

    - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:39 pm

    “unaware”

    Donald Trump was delayed seeing table after table of people to offend along the way.


  47. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:44 pm:

    Donald Trump was delayed… he ran into Quinnochio…


  48. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:47 pm:

    Trump was delayed, asking for the naming rights of the City Club of Chicago…


  49. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:49 pm:

    Trump was delayed. It appears apprentice winner and Chicagoan Bill Rancic doesn’t know the city as well as he thought.


  50. - Anonymous - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:51 pm:

    The unelected table


  51. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:52 pm:

    Trump was delayed, the city meter his limo was parked at earlier expired and the car got the boot.


  52. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:53 pm:

    Twenty minutes later, still no sport coat, no tie, no long pants, still no Fritchey…


  53. - siriusly - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:55 pm:

    “Yes of course the Governor knows I’m here, he told me I could come”


  54. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:55 pm:

    Trump was delayed, he was busy filming the part where “The Apprentice” implodes due to his own… Trump-ness.


  55. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 3:58 pm:

    Trump was delayed, he was picking out the appropriate intro music after being told “Hail to the Chief” is out.


  56. - All the answers - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:00 pm:

    @Williamjkelly you could always run against her for comptroller but then again you’ve done that before haven’t you


  57. - Grandson of Man - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:09 pm:

    “Hopin’ that the animal on Trump’s head is not on my plate.”


  58. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:10 pm:

    Trump was delayed, he went to the Bean and the reflection of himself was even too powerful for him to resist.


  59. - Spaulding - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:13 pm:

    Are you gonna eat your fat?


  60. - Quizzical - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:17 pm:

    Donald Makes Mike Huckabee or Ben Carson look like Pericles. I’m here to improve my image in that way.


  61. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:18 pm:

    “Did you hear that Trump is leading the polls at Bellevue?”


  62. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:18 pm:

    Trump was delayed, he was busy filming an Ad for White Castle…


  63. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:20 pm:

    “I saw him in the rain once and that thing on his head smelled like a chinchilla.”


  64. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:22 pm:

    “Trump got pulled over by a cop on the way here. He was charged with driving under the influence of a potholder.”


  65. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:24 pm:

    “Somebody ought to tell him orange is the new punchline.”


  66. - Ron Burgundy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:24 pm:

    Comptroller, meet the GOPtroller.


  67. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:27 pm:

    “No, he’s not offensive at all, unless you look at him or listen to him.”


  68. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:29 pm:

    Trump was delayed, he was at O’Hare waiting for a police escort into the Loop…


  69. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:30 pm:

    “The National Enquirer says it starts in his armpit, goes up the back of his neck, and ends in a comb over. Well, you know they check and double check, so I’m sure it’s true.”


  70. - Gooner - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:34 pm:

    “The individual who soon will lack funds to pay operating costs attending a lunch time speech at which she received advice from a person who, through various controlled entities filed bankruptcy four times.”


  71. - Gooner - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:42 pm:

    “Yes, I saw the report about Petr Cech and believe he will add 12-15 points to Arsenal next season.”

    Ah,that probably wasn’t their discussion, but if only our government officials would focus on the really important matters like that, thing would definitely improve. We can dream.


  72. - 47th Ward - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:51 pm:

    If he spends a penny of his own money on this freak show campaign for president they ought to change the name on that building to CHUMP Tower.


  73. - Amalia - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:52 pm:

    I’m taking out the part where he talks about Mexicans…


  74. - Amalia - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 4:53 pm:

    @ Gooner, check on Cech! Abramovich let him go, I’m certain Jose M. is still seething and claiming Cech is nothing.


  75. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 5:00 pm:

    “I heard his running mate is going to be Carrot Top.”


  76. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 5:02 pm:

    “There’s a rumor the FEC is going to disqualify him because his ego is on steroids.”


  77. - Gooner - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 5:05 pm:

    Amalia, that was a complete class move by Chelsea to let him move to a spot in London where he can both be the starting keeper and compete for hardware. That’s how you thank somebody for all those years of service. No more Abramovich bashing from me ever.

    In addition, the last three years we’ve brought in Ozil, Sanchez and now Cech? Times are changing at Arsenal. Wenger seems to have decided that top four will not do it anymore. We need to go to the top of the table.

    It is amazing that if we sign anybody else, they will displace a high quality player. If we bring in a midfielder, it means that the likes of a Santi or a Ramsey will be on the bench. That’s a heck of a lot different from past years.


  78. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 5:05 pm:

    “No, I haven’t watched Celebrity Apprentice since Charo was on and she started crying when he said, ‘You’re fired!’”


  79. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 5:31 pm:

    The chair is empty as Evelyn figured a nicely times pratfall, she’s Trump’s pick for VP…

    “Oh, I agree, I agree. I haven’t heard anything as intellectually profound as this speech since the campfire scene in ‘Blazing Saddles!’”


  82. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 6:13 pm:

    “I took my fork and catapulted a ravioli onto his hair while he was speaking and he didn’t even notice.”


  83. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 6:18 pm:

    “Boy. This guy makes Governor Rauner look like Gandhi.”


  84. - Anonymous - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 6:28 pm:

    “The chair is empty as Evelyn figured a nicely times pratfall”
    Very classy Willy. Nice to mock people with balance issues due to disabilities.


  85. - wrangler - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 6:34 pm:

    Keep this on the down low. But a source within the Illinois Republican party told me that “The Donald” is looking for a running mate. We have a guy here in Illinois that will shake up Washington!


  86. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 6:39 pm:

    Oh - Anonymous -, I’m sure the pratfall didn’t happen with Trump… at least that day. Ok?

    “Caption?”

    The chair is empty as the City Club’s liability insurance wouldn’t cover a certain Lt. Governor…


  87. - Rich Miller - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 10:44 pm:

    ===“I saw him in the rain once and that thing on his head smelled like a chinchilla.”===

    Winner.


  88. - anon - Monday, Jun 29, 15 @ 11:57 pm:

    I hope Munger is not supporting Trump. She has impressed me thus far. She definitely has a great shot at keeping the Office in the Republican Fold if her opponent is City Clerk Mendoza. Her ties to Madigan and Emanuel will be enough to do her in. And the lines for City Stickers are still terrible.


  89. - Nickname #2 - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:27 am:

    In order to get the main course it’s time to pull out your birth certificates! Oh, and don’t forget to tip your waiters and waitresses, they make less than minimum wage so I can afford to be here!
