Ten Weird-A$$ Places Donald Trump Should Visit in Denver, Colorado Springs

The Republican presidential nominee is scheduled to make two appearances here today — a town hall at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs' Gallogly Events Center at 2 p.m. and a rally at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver at 7 p.m.
That's a pretty tight schedule, but we still think Trump could squeeze in a few other stops. So we picked out five apiece from Colorado Springs and Denver that are specifically tailored to his "special" qualities.
Yeah, they're weird. But Trump lovers and haters can agree that he is, too. Count down our top ten below.
Number 10: May Natural History Museum
The May Natural History Museum boasts of housing the world's largest private insect collection, featuring more than 7,000 species of spiders, scorpions, butterflies, moths and more. Even better, it's easy to find thanks to Herkimer, a giant beetle sculpture on display outside the museum that would be a perfect mascot for Trump's campaign. After all, Herkimer is 'uuuuuuuuge!
Number 9: Wynkoop Brewing Co. — for a can of Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout
Trump is always trying to prove that he's got more balls than any other presidential candidate — or human being — ever. And what better way to do so than by guzzling down a can of Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout, which, according to the company, is "made with Colorado base malts, roasted barley, seven specialty malts, Styrian Goldings hops, and 25 pounds of freshly sliced and roasted bull testicles." And Trump knows his bull.

Number 8: Cave of the Winds Mountain Park
Not only is the scenery at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park absolutely spectacular, but the winds themselves would provide an irresistible challenge to The Donald, especially this time of year — a chance to prove that nothing or no one blows more hot air than he does.
Number 7: Lakeside Amusement Park's Wild Chipmunk
For a lot of us, there's no scarier attraction on the planet than Lakeside's Wild Chipmunk, in part because it constantly seems to be on the verge of falling apart. Could it be a metaphor for a Trump presidency? We doubt he'd see it that way — but it still would do him good to preview the crazy ride that he could take America on a few short months from now.
Number 6: Cheyenne Mountain Nuclear Bunker
There's no need for Trump to sweat explosive foreign policy statements thanks to this facility, which is said to have been designed to withstand a thirty megaton nuclear blast from just two kilometers away. As a bonus, there's lots of room for Trump and his entire family. If all life above ground is wiped out, he and Melania are ready, willing and able to get started on repopulating the planet.
