IF nothing else, Donald Trump has done a wonderful job of making the esteemed position of President of the United States of America seem an accessible and achievable one in the minds of many who would previously, in a pre-Trump era, have considered themselves unqualified or simply unable to carry out the role.

The latest man buoyed by Trump’s lowering of the bar is Oscar De La Hoya, the former six-weight world champion and boxing promoter, who is apparently considering the possibility of launching an audacious – but not as audacious as it should be – presidential bid.

Speaking to TMZ, the 45-year-old said he is putting together an “exploratory team” to gauge interest and, like Kanye West before him, is at least committed to the tease.
