The former talkshow host revealed that he believes the media attention surrounding Trump's interest in running for office is simply the result of being "enjoyable" and filling the role of political oddity once held by Sarah Palin in the press.
"Remember when you were a little kid and a wiseguy at the back of the class would shout things out? That's Trump. He makes you laugh and giggle," Springer told PopEater.
"Right now, Trump is enjoyable. Sarah Palin is no longer the flavour of the month, so Trump is."
However, he went on to insist that he does not believe Trump stands a real chance of succeeding in a campaign, adding: "I don't think any of these people are going to beat Obama. Republicans have overreached. Do we really want a country without Medicare?"
Trump previously claimed that he is capable of beating President Obama in the 2012 election should he decide to join the race.
