The Guardian: The Donald trumps even himself for idiocy
Billionaire finally launches his 'devastating' bombshell; Romnesia and the Obamastare; and Lindsay Lohan is the undecided
Possibly the least credible statement in the election campaign so far – and that's an extremely crowded field – appeared on the Facebook page of angry multimillionaire and windfarm-hating germophobe Donald Trump, in advance of what he promised would be a gamechanging "October Surprise" revelation about Barack Obama. "This is not a media event or about Donald J Trump," he wrote – a claim that, if true, would have made it unique in his professional career. "This is about the United States of America." Oh, but it very much was about Donald J Trump – and far from being a gamechanging revelation, the much reported revelation, when it finally came, wasn't even a revelation. It was a two-and-three-quarter-minute YouTube video in which the mogul, sitting behind a desk and seemingly channelling the spirit of a Bond villain, offered Obama "a deal I don't believe he can refuse."
Love the headline!

1. True, but he got what he was after . . .
everyone is talking about him again. 'Mission Accomplished', in his world . . . 'any publicity is good publicity'.
He is a shameless self-promoter.

3. No, it's not unfortunately!
The more the pundits talk about Trump's absurd announcement, the less attention they will pay to the propaganda Benghazi email.
