Obama Demands to See Trump's Elementary-School Diploma

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Former President Barack Obama ignited a firestorm of controversy on Wednesday by demanding to see President Donald Trump’s elementary-school diploma.

Speaking to reporters in Washington, Obama called on Trump to prove “once and for all” that he had completed a K-through-five program.

“While the U.S. Constitution does not require the President to have graduated from fifth grade, it would still be nice to know that he had done so,” Obama said.

By insisting on the release of Trump’s diploma, Obama joined a growing movement of so-called schoolers, who contend that Trump never attended school.

Schoolers’ demands to see documentation of Trump’s elementary-school attendance have yet to sway the White House, which has released only a short version of Trump’s second-grade report card, with the grades completely redacted.

3. Next we should ask to see proof that he had a mother and wasn't just a gamete from Fred

Having seen pictures of his Mummmmmy I could understand not wanting to acknowledge parentage. Of course Old Fred wasn't much of a ladies' man (from my POV.)

5. I don't think most grammar school gave "diplomas" back then.

I sure don't remember getting one and couldn't produce it if I did.

There goes my bid for prez.

6. I'm now a schooler too!

They'll never get the truth from him on this, which is why it shows it was really bad or he'd be bragging and showing off about it even more. . Its recently been shown he lied about being a honors student in Penn too.

And this is not intended as an insult to those who really do suffer.

But they say he still takes Adderall and that stuff can be dangerous.

General Wesley Clark had ADD at the age of 7. Look what a great Leader he turned out to ne.

That's when we learned that we were supposed to be nice to other people and that lying was bad.

34. He bought a diploma with his allowance.

In the era tRump should have been attending, elementary schools were usually through 6th grade. Just FYI.
