Trump’s Obama Announcement A Big Publicity Stunt, Mogul Offers $5M For College Transcripts And Obama’s Passport Application

trump obama announcement revealed

Trump’s Obama announcement has been revealed, and as expected, it’s much ado about nothing.

In a YouTube video released at 12 pm Wednesday, Trump’s Obama announcement was posted to YouTube, asking for the President’s passport application and college transcripts by 5 pm on October 30. That’s it.

As expected, Trump was unable to dig up any dirt on Obama despite dispatching teams of private investigators to Obama’s home state of Hawaii, and spending considerable time advancing the theory that President Obama had not been born in the United States, also known as “birtherism.”

In the clip, Trump’s Obama announcement is revealed to be another massive waste of time, revealing more speculation about the President’s “lack of transparency,” without any evidence at all that any allegations slung by Trump or his followers amounts to any actual, credible information about Barack Obama’s past, education, citizenship or pre-Oval Office dealings.

Predictably, all comments have been disabled on the YouTube video for Trump’s big Obama “announcement,” during which he claims responsibility for the release of Obama’s long-form birth certificate, or “whatever it may be.”

Should President Obama comply with the request, Trump promises to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice. (Trump suggests “inner-city children in Chicago” as one of the potential charities.)

In short, the Trump Obama announcement was yet another publicity bid by Trump, and even the mogul’s pals over at Fox News have failed to cover the “media event.”

    There is no case for that. Donald is just an annoyance. As a conservative, I just wish he'd shut the hell up. He has the biggest, unwarranted ego on the planet.

    Well that to me sounds like "free money"… "Obama Money" if you will. If I were Obama, I'd make some calls and release the transcripts. I think giving $5M to a charity just before the election is a no-brainer. Nobody would refuse a deal like that, unless of course, there is something to hide. I'd be willing to bet anything Obama WILL NOT release those records. $5M is not worth exposing whatever is lurking in those records – and that is why Obama has already spent millions filing lawsuits to keep them hidden.

    How come nobody has ever asked for Bush's college transcripts? The guy can't speak English, despite a Yale undergrad, and can't identify a recession despite having a Harvard MBA.

  4. Steven Williams

    Same can be said about Romney and his taxes. You just want to believe the man is from Kenya and wants to destroy America.

  5. Ohio Frontiersmen

    I do not believe he is from Kenya. I do believe he has A LOT that he is hiding. It's a no-brainer, release the records and get $5M for your favorite charity.

  6. Kim LaCapria

    Obama is the President of the United States of America. He does NOT have to answer to this cretin. Trump is free to donate money to charities if he so chooses.

  7. Ohio Frontiersmen

    Bush's transcripts were accessible. Don't you remember all the hype about Bush having a "C" average? The point here is Obama will not release his past records – even for $5M. If that doesn't tell you he is hiding something big, nothing will.

  8. Michael Grisa

    My point is, he never could have done his own work at such prestigious schools and end up as stupid as he is. Think Rodney Dangerfiled in "Back to School". I am positive that is the only way he made it through.

    what a stupid remark from a person who support corpseman barry and 57 states berry

  10. Ohio Frontiersmen

    Ahhh yes. The ole "He's the president and we must not question him" line from the far-left Saul Alinsky playbook. Well, Bush (and many others before him) were savagely attacked when they were president. All Trump is asking for here is some silly records – a little "transparency".

  11. Ohio Frontiersmen

    Actually the point is every president is vetted – except this one. For some reason, this guy is "above reproach". I say release the records and be done with it. But he will not release them – the info would end his campaign.

  12. Michael Grisa

    Will you accept all the doctored "proof" that Bush provided?

    And @vetus- come up with something that is an argument. Calling names is for children.

  13. Diane Benson

    It is considered standard and customary that all Presidential candidates past and present release years worth of tax returns to show financial ties. Goerge Romney, Mitts ather set the standard for releasing 12 years in 1968 when he ran for President. Even he said, that only releasing one o two years is ogood as they may be an aberration for the norm.

    So why hasn't Mit released more than 2010 and an estimate for 2011 which is incomplete. He clearly is hiding some thing.

    Presidential candidates do not release their school records. it is not the norm.

  14. Julie E Simmons

    What planet is trump living on? What on Earth would make him think that any POTUS would respond to this outrageous trump outburst? he is not sitting in a board room. There is no deal to be made. And he isn't helping the candidate he supports with this ridiculous babble. You're fired!

  15. Roger Molnar

    If transcripts were released Trump would not pay… he would call them doctored and refuse to pay. It is an old tired Republican trick….. as usual… no meat on the bone….. Trump lies and can not be trusted.

  16. Donny Cherf

    Perhaps Obama could promise to reveal when Romney reveals his 12 years of tax returns. Tell Trump to keep his money.

  17. Kim LaCapria

    Okay, I'll put it to you this way. I'd like to see Mitt Romney's third grade art class drawings, because there is not enough transparency in his campaign. If he does that, I will donate $12 to a charity of his choice. Why is Donald Trump's request more reasonable than mine?

    Trump is a nobody, irrelevant to this campaign, no political standing. No, the President is under no obligation to answer to HIM.

  18. Ohio Frontiersmen

    Well you have a point – on the surface it is a silly request. And nobody should have to ask for transcripts to be released – they should be public record like any other president. What makes the whole thing suspicious is that Obama has spent millions of dollars to file lawsuits and injunctions to stop ANY of his records from coming out. Any prudent person would ask, "Why?" I could understand the president dismissing the records if it would require him to take time out and dig them up, but it doesn't. Right now it would be a perfect time to release the records, collect $5M, and put all this talk about it behind him. I am sure $5M would go a long way in helping people and it would give him big political points right before an election.

  19. Kim LaCapria

    It would also open the door for this kind of thing to be considered valid. Trump and Palin have the same issue with the President as a lot of the right – they literally cannot believe he is a legitimate President. This is an attempt to drag him into their racism, and he is right to ignore it.

    As others have said, I'd be far more interested in seeing Romney's tax returns.

  20. Damien Dunn

    That's it! I couldn't put my finger on it, but that's what (it) reminded me of. "Now here this inhabitants of Earth. Put all of your Obamonium on a Space Capsule and send it to my Mother Sihip or I will destroy the planet Hahahaha!"

  21. Ohio Frontiersmen

    LOL.
    "RACISM" – A term that means absolutely nothing anymore thanks to the liberals of this country. Whenever someone disagrees with Obama, it is racism. Whenever there is a black Republican that speaks out against Obama, the left screams "Sell out". If you want to see racism in action, take a close hard look at the "plantation politics" of the Democratic party. Did you know 98% of all blacks in this country vote for Obama? What would you call that if 98% of all whites voted for Romney? Don't say it – I already know.

  22. Damien Dunn

    That's a pretty good bet. Trump's caveat is that he be the sole judge of whether or not the documents are satisfactory. How about the $5mm and the documents are put "In Trust" to an unbiased individual, (maybe someone balanced like Glen Beck) :) I'm not suggesting that the President should give this idiot the time of day, but if he could make a call and let a Trustee handle it instead of Trump & Fox manipulating the information, then what the heck.

    Jim at least know your research over both Obama's surrendering their law licenses in "voluntary" and "retired" status for governmental and requirements reasons. You can find that bipartisan info here:

    http://www.factcheck.org/2012/06/the-obamas-law-licenses/

    Actually almost ever one of your claims is baseless propaganda that has been disproven, in some cases even by members of the GOP.

    BTW, in 2008 White House staff list, the last under President Bush listed Laura push to have 16 assistants, the same number listed for Michelle Obama in 2009.

    It should be noted that "First Lady" titles in reports for the white house and staffers often include staffers who work on various initiatives, such as Michelle Obama's campaign for child health.

    As far as Obama's foreign aid is has been debunked all over the web including plenty of links to verifiable info here: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/occidental.asp

    And so on and so forth.

    I notice you didn't point to any of the issues in this country…no good argument I assume?

    Donald Trump—SHOULD offer to donate $5 million to charity if Mitt Romney—releases 10 years of his TAXES? …Sent to over 250 media emails…I had to do it!

    Donald is a Democrat. They planted him in the Republican party to try to make the Republican look bad. Too bad, he turns out to make them look good.
