During a lightning round of a debate, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump picked a potential Secret Service code name that was truly coded: HUMBLE. When the braggadocious billionaire starts to receive actual Secret Service protection Wednesday morning, agents plan to call him something a bit more fitting: MOGUL.
Okay. Mebbe that’s a bit more modest.
Hm. MOGUL as in magnate, tycoon? Or MOGUL as in speed-bump on the ski slopes?
