Surprise! Barack Obama is an ‘other’. Donald Trump, host of The Apprentice and rich dude, has come forward with his promised ‘October Surprise‘. First Donald wants you to know he is very proud that he forced Barack Obama to release his long-form Birth Certificate, proving he is an American citizen. A fact already proved by the fact that he has an American mother, but anywho. But Donald Trump doesn’t go small, now that the Birther egg is nearly washed clean from his face, Donald is back with another round of accusations in his October Surprise video, and this time he has a deal that Barack Obama can’t refuse. In typical Donald Trump fashion, it involves money.
Donald released a youtube video this morning and it it made the following proposition to President Obama: “If Barack Obama opens up and gives his College records and applications, and if he gives his Passport Application and records, I will give to a charity of his choice … five million dollars.” Watch the full message below:
So Donald Trump playing the dog whistle double time is an October Surprise? I think we all knew the Donald was a blow hard long before this. I can’t remember a Presidential election that was decided by anyone’s College transcripts or Passport Records, let alone whether a sitting president bowed to the demands of known extremist opponent. Adding the charity thing is certainly a stroke of genius on the behalf of Donald Trump, but it’s bound to blow up in his face. If he can afford to be making a $5m donation to charity but won’t for political reasons, that just makes him… extremely far right?
And here I thought his October Surprise would be that Iran had obtained a coastline.
