Forbes: Trump Reveals His Promised Blockbuster News About Obama!

It's really not "news", but rather a "silly request" for President Obama's college and passport records.

From http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/10/24/trump-reveals-his-promised-blockbuster-news-about-obama/

"It turns out, its not so much big news as a silly challenge. What a shock.

... Trump has promised to make a five million dollar donation to any charity of President Obama’s choice if the President, in return, “opens up and gives his college records and applications--and if he gives his passport applications and records.” There is a catch--Mr. Obama must provide the demanded documents by 5:00 p.m. on October 31, 2012.

Should the President decide to meet the terms of the challenge, Trump promises to issue a five million dollar check within one hour after the President releases the materials."

WHAT'S YOUR OPINION?

1. "America’s latest incarnation of P.T. Barnum disguised as a real estate developer..."

America’s latest incarnation of P.T. Barnum disguised as a real estate developer rather than the circus huckster he truly is.

4. A bunch of people should dress up as college records and go trick or treating at Trump's house...

with a message from Obama: *all the people dressed up as college records could stick their fingers in their ears, stick their tongues and and say "neener neener neener" at Trump*

7. Forbes

I hope the President accepts challenge. It may start to counter the utter lack of thought or concern shown for the poor by both parties.

10. I don't understand how Obama accepting Trump's "challenge"

would counter anything. The request is stupid.

23. I hope the response to this is that when Romney hands over his tax records

maybe someone will find the time to read the latest garbage from Trump.

I think we should start a petition and a fund raiser asking Romney to come clean about his tax records and we will donate the proceeds if he hands them over, to any charity he chooses.

8. Where's a Democratic multi-millionaire to make that same offer

for Mitt's tax returns?

Oh wait, we're not cold heartless bastards who would withhold money from charity just to make someone else look bad. Fuck Trump.

20. Amen to

"we're not cold heartless bastards who would withhold money from charity just to make someone else look bad. Fuck Trump". If Trump has an extra $5 million that he could give to a good cause, he should just GIVE it and STFU.

9. Let's see Romney's tax returns first

Romney hasn't submitted to even a cursory background check. Obama is the most checked man who has ever been in the White House.

Oh, right, Romney's a rich old white guy. He couldn't possibly have anything to hide!

12. Shhhhhhh...

Trump doesn't have 5 million in liquid assets to give away right now. He is not nearly as rich as he says he is and his empire is crumbling at his feet. He doesn't even have anything to do with Trump Towers any more since the owners fired his management organization.

He is nothing more that a fading TV personality.

25. The writer in Forbes points out that anything from Trump

should be cash - in advance - paid to a independent and neutral third party - and definitely not a check!

But the clear emphasis is that the Prez should give this idiotic asshat's stupid stunt exactly the attention it deserves - which is none.

Lincoln, Ike - likely even Saint Raygun - are literally spinning in their graves at the catastrophic mess today's Republican Party has become.

Even if POTUS did engage the assclown on his request, Trumpy would call whatever docs provided "fakes".

Too bad they don't question their own party's policies and belief in a made-up diety with the same fervor...

14. Becoming irrelevant with so much money...hmmm...probably what Romney thought too.

Trump gets fired and Romney fails to get hired. Please go to your Dickensian counting-rooms and leave the rest of us alone.

24. And this, Ladies and Gentlemen, is why I didn't lose a *second* of sleep waiting

on this moron to reveal his latest set of "Emperor-branded" new clothes.

Always the same nonsense - all hype and no substance.

Yes, Donald, this will sway everything.

Just like the RNC changed the course of the election by canceling your sooper yooge "surprise" appearance at their convention.

I think the guy suffers from living amidst a city he knows regards him with withering contempt.
