Donald Trump can’t help thinking that this is all just another episode of ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
Yawn, guffaw, scratch, burp and mild disbelief that we were all taken in by Donald Trump who’s major bombshell turned out to be anything but a bombshell but rather a resounding endorsement of why he is the clown with the crazy haircut that runs around pointing sticks at things and people he doesn’t like or understand.
In the end what Mr Trump gave us instead of real hard facts that may have suggested some underhanded activity on behalf of President Barack Obama turned out to be a laughable gimmick. Instead what the Don gave us was a teaser that involved him giving $5 million of his own money to Barack Obama’s charity of choice if the president simply publicly released his college records (which would of course let us all in the secret that the president is really an exchange student from Timbuktu,Indonesia) and his passport application (to prove once and for all he is Muslim or something like that). Which elicits the immediate reaction ‘Huh? haven’t we already been through this before Don?’
Reiterated our collective action hero:
The records must be turned over by Oct. 31 by 5 p.m., and the check will be made within an hour after the records are released, Trump said.
“President Obama is the least transparent president in the history of this country. There’s never been anything like it,” Trump says in his released video (I was looking for the gongs in the background), taking credit for getting Obama to release his longform birth certificate “or whatever it may be.”
“If he releases these records, it will end the question and indeed the anger of many Americans. They’ll know something about their president. Their president will become transparent, like other presidents,” he said. “I absolutely would be the most happy of all if I did in fact make this contribution through the president to these charities.”
The above led to the glib reaction courtesy of white house senior advisor David Plouffe who responded :“Direct those questions to Boston because Donald Trump is Mitt Romney’s biggest supporter, so he owns everything he says.”
Mr Trump’s latest stunt (can we really call it anything else?) comes after much anticipation by the public and the media alike that Mr Trump really had something legitimate on Barack Obama but in the end what it seems is Mr Trump has once again reminded us that he is a lovable clown that
does not means well, is bought and paid for by the conservative agenda who can’t help pretending he is a perennial celebrity apprentice boss ready now to even give the President the axe. If only we could all just give the Don the axe instead….
How did political discussion ever regress to such rampant hyperbole….?
