Trump’s ‘bombshell’ Obama disclosure turns out to be literally nothing
When Donald Trump teased Fox News viewers with a “gigantic” bombshell of a disclosure about President Barack Obama that could potentially alter the course of the election, the media was expecting at least something. Anything, really.
And on Wednesday, they got absolutely, literally nothing at all.
Speculation about Trump’s “bombshell” had reached a fever pitch Wednesday morning after gossip surfaced about a nameless old Obama college buddy who was allegedly prepared to swear that the president used to sell cocaine. Other blogs speculated that Trump may have unearthed divorce papers drawn up by Michelle Obama during a rocky point in their relationship.
It turns out there’s not a lick of truth to any of that. In a video published on YouTube Wednesday afternoon, Trump offered to buy Obama’s college and passport records with a $5 million donation to the charity of Obama’s choice.

1. He might have changed plans when he realized the divorce papers were likely to backfire.
This 5M offer for transcripts and passport is so lame it sounds like something he just made up today.
