Donald Trump’s Latest Challenge to Obama Renders Him Irrelevant

It’s not us. It’s you. You’ve been annoying in the past. You’ve also been good copy. But your latest pitiful attempt to keep your name in headlines is one empty bid for attention too many. By Lloyd Grove.

It’s been fun, Donald. You’ve provided your share of colorful copy and driven more than your share of online traffic with your attention-getting antics and desperate PR stunts. In the spirit of taking responsibility, let’s acknowledge that we in the media have been your enablers.

Even today, we couldn’t help ourselves after you promised a “very big announcement” concerning President Obama, the subject of intense speculation about divorce papers and other gossipy detritus since you teased it on Monday’s Fox & Friends. We clicked on your Twitter feed at noon—only to discover that, once again, you had tricked us with another Trumpian exercise in self-promotion.

To be fair, we did enjoy your impression of Dr. Evil as you sat behind your very big desk and shouted into the camera, vowing to contribute “five mill-ion dol-lars!” to the charity of the president’s choice if he releases “to my satisfaction!” all of his college records and passport applications by, appropriately enough, Halloween at 5 p.m.

But all good (and, in this case, bad) things must come to an end. So, with…well, not regret, but an overpowering sense of relief…we at The Daily Beast offer our own announcement: effective immediately, in light of your latest foolish attempt at seeming important, we will ignore you and your hot air for the foreseeable future—or, at the very least, until after the Nov. 6 election. Every other media outlet, of course, will have to make its own determination, but, for the health of the body politic, we humbly urge them to do the same.

1. He's only "irrelevant" if we stop talking about him. He knows how to stir up the media. Can we....

just act as if he doesn't exist? And here's to his impending "irrelevance".

2. The key words being,

“to my satisfaction!”

Even if The President gave in to this domestic terrorist, nothing he released would be to donald trump's satisfaction. Go f*ck yourself donny, you deserve nothing less.

3. Trump has a new relevance, making Romney look like a desperate fool!

You have to wonder if Obama's debate coach helped him look and sound sooo pathetic
