October 24, 2012: The Day Trump Changed Everything (LIVEBLOG)

11:46 AM - Will Donald Trump's big announcement be a tweet that leads to his Facebook page? Will it be a Facebook link to a series of Tweets? NOBODY FARKING KNOWS.

11:48 AM - Early indications are that Obama may be giving up on several swing states, including Indiana, South Carolina and Arizona, in anticipation of Trump announcement.

11:49 AM - Whatever this is, please don't let it ruin the Choom Gang. I love those wacky kids.

11:53 AM - Which third-party candidate are you going to support after Donald Trump destroys Obama's political career? I'm thinking Jill Stein.

11:58 AM - Two minutes. Tell your Obamatard friends you love them.

11:59 AM - Arewethereyet arewethereyet arewethereyet

12:02 PM - The Trump announcement is that...he will give $5 million to a charity of Obama's choice if Obama releases his college transcripts and passport applications. What the fark, Trump? HOW COULD YOU CHANGE THE GAME SO HARD?

I wonder who Obama's gonna kill to preempt the Celebrity Apprentice this time.

mightybaldking: What's stupid about this is no one keeps those records.

I have a degree, and I could mail in for a transcript. No problem. I have no clue about my application. Once I was accepted, the application ceased to matter.

I have never kept a copy of my passport application. I handed it over to the dour clerk on the other side of the counter. I've got one current passport, and one expired one.

Even if Obama wanted to comply, I doubt he could.

Yeah - that's what kinda kills me about the birthers: Are they completely unaware as to how said process works? You have to send in your birth certificate to get one...send it to the secretary of states office.

So they are saying that the grand Obama conspiracy began when he was issued his US Passort in his teens?

For reals?
2012-10-24 01:24:15 PM  
Admit it birthers

There is no document that exists that would satisfy you.

Any doc that proves Obama is legit must be fake. You'll always demand more because in your gut you just know he's foreign. Facts will never change that.

2012-10-24 01:24:40 PM  
Obama can just give $5 Billion to another charity of his choice instead... as long as taxpayers are paying the bill.

Jackson Herring: "I got him to release his birth certificate, or whatever it is..."

" my satisfaction."

Interesting pic. He looks like he's wearing a helmet from Tron.
2012-10-24 01:25:56 PM

What Donald Trump's satisfaction may look like. 

/quick AND dirty
2012-10-24 01:25:59 PM  
wha' happened?

first there is a thread then there is no thread then there is...

Maximillian Largo is a perfect fit.

2012-10-24 01:26:21 PM  
I thought he was going to reveal that Obama had a couple of black kids.
2012-10-24 01:26:29 PM  

KarmicDisaster: What a giant dumbass. Transcripts aren't going to show what he thinks that they want to see; some evidence of uh, preferential treatment of something. They are just lists of grades and courses. He wants the admissions records, which most places don't even keep. So good luck with blackmailing the President. Has FOX started running 24/7 with this yet?

For some reason these people think a college transcript has a record of the financial aid you received while you were in college. They think that this will prove that Obama received special grants reserved for foreign born students, which by the way don't exist. This will prove that he is either not a citizen or lied about his place of birth to get preferential treatment. Goes to show you how many people have ever seen an actual college transcript.

But I also like his "To my satisfaction" clause. If Obama decides to show him everything, Trump will just claim it is forged and refuse to pay up, and he knows the Derp Squad will support him in it because it will play into their delusion that Obama is an usurper.

You would think that the Republican Party would realize that he is doing more harm than good and tell this guy to STFU or pay him to go away
2012-10-24 01:26:37 PM  

kvinesknows: KarmicDisaster: I offer $100 if Trump will let me pull on his hair.

Id offer him $1000 to let me eat a piece of ham off of him.

2012-10-24 01:26:40 PM  

kvinesknows: wait a second wait a second wait a second.... does this mean he actually admits that Obumer was born in the US of A and in one stroke trump has killed the birther movement for once and for all?

Keep listening. "His long-form birth certificate or whatever it may be."

ToxicMunkee: I demand to see Obama's crayon drawings from 2nd grade. Only then will he be truly transparent.

Silly ToxicMonkey. They don't ave crayons on Kenya, only lead paint.

2012-10-24 01:27:46 PM  
I think that the big news is that in the video Trump acknowledges that the birf cert is real.
2012-10-24 01:28:06 PM  
In a Tweet from yesterday, he said "This is not...about Donald J. Trump."

Today's statement: "," and the URLs of his Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Bonus: "[A] large portion of American people are asking me to serve as their spokesperson."
2012-10-24 01:28:08 PM  
I'm dense... I get that. Maybe I'm not always quick on the uptake. And Fark is filled with very smart people. So I know one of you has the answers to the following three questions:

1. Why am I supposed to care about Obama (or any other president's) school records and passport records?

2. Does what someone did in college mean much of anything 30 years later?

3. Why am I supposed to care what Donald Trump has to say about anything?
2012-10-24 01:28:26 PM  
AS I stated in the other thread, this is far dumber than I expected, and that's saying a lot.
2012-10-24 01:28:34 PM  

internut scholar: What's the deal with Trump's office? I was expecting HUGE things. Like mahogany paneled walls and BIG gold trim. There are supposed to be MAGNIFICENT things there, not a office depot set up.

Of course it's Office Depot. He can't very well use Staples, can he?
2012-10-24 01:29:03 PM
2012-10-24 01:29:04 PM  
It's a brilliant troll move. If President Obama says "No", the derpers get all foamed up and say, "He's denying charities of Trump's generous gift!"

And if he produces the requested documents, then he's on the spot to pick a charity. Which one, Mr. President, Charity A? Oh, so you're saying Charity B is unworthy? How so? Is there something wrong with them?

And again, the derpers will have distracted Homeland from the grotesque horror that is The Romney.
2012-10-24 01:29:13 PM  

ongbok: You would think that the Republican Party would realize that he is doing more harm than good and tell this guy to STFU or pay him to go away

You've seen all of the other public pundits for the GOP, right?

KarmicDisaster: I think that the big news is that in the video Trump acknowledges that the birf cert is real.

No he doesn't, he added the, "or whatever it is" to discredit it, just like he added "to my satisfaction" in order to never have to write a $5 million check.
2012-10-24 01:29:46 PM  
That's really more of a bribe :-/
2012-10-24 01:29:52 PM  

Lost Thought 00: Just for giggles, Obama should have the CIA send someone to leave a pleasant note on Trumps chest during the night, just to let him know he's not untouchable

Would that be the same CIA that some farkers claimed was trying to help Romney with the whole Libya thing?
2012-10-24 01:30:02 PM  

sprawl15: Obama is the least transparent president in history!

His tinting is at least three shades darker than the legal limit!


"Transparent" - dog whistle phrase for "white?"

Releasing his 3 year immunization records ain't gonna make him any whiter, Trump.
2012-10-24 01:30:03 PM  
It would be a shame if Obama didn't release the records because in his applications he profiles himself as a foreigner.

It would be epic if the records are clean and the transcrips don't have anything dicey other a few Cs.

At any rate, I seriously doubt this will do anything to change the minds of a significant number of swing-state voters if Obama ignores The Donald -- Obama's camp is too smart for Trumps callow bating tactics. 

/dounts Trump would even pay because even if Obama did release, it would never meet Trump's "satisfaction".
2012-10-24 01:30:10 PM  

Brick-House: ourbigdumbmouth: Trump is a goof ball, and playing into his game is a waste of time for the President, but I think Obama should do it. He really has nothing to lose.

And everyone knows passports are easy to fake anyways.

So are birth certificates

So are taxes.

What a clusterfark, and for what? A stupid farking troll. Christ, I don't know why I bother with this site sometimes.

Fluorescent Testicle: Law-talkin' guys (and girls) of Fark: Is this even legal?

Why wouldn't it be legal?
2012-10-24 01:30:41 PM  
I'm so confused
2012-10-24 01:31:01 PM  

kazikian: That's really more of a bribe :-/

ooo.. true... so him caving in would be proof he is unfit to lead because he can be bribed.
2012-10-24 01:31:25 PM  
This from the same person who demanded birth certificates, got them and still wasn't satisfied? He knew that these two weeks would be his last chance at getting attention, don't give it to him.
2012-10-24 01:31:26 PM  

BeatrixK: So they are saying that the grand Obama conspiracy began when he was issued his US Passort in his teens?

No, no, no, before that. It goes back to his mother when she was selected by the Muslim Arab Council to give birth to their secret usurper child.
2012-10-24 01:31:43 PM  

blacksho89: The college has your college application, as does the passport office your passport application.

I have no idea what the wingnuts think this will prove. "Aha! BHO, born 1961 in Honolulu, applied for a passport in 1968! This changes everything!"

I also have no idea how far back records are kept. Does the passport office even have Obama's 1960-whatever child passport application, for when he went to Indonesia?
2012-10-24 01:31:46 PM  
I could listen to Trump talk all day.
The combination of bat-shiate crazy, monomaniacal self love, and the fact that his head has become a life support system for his hair make it one train wreck I don't want to look away from. I give him credit, he has yet to let any facts get in the way of his stunts and despite numerous humiliating set backs, he is not afraid to power up the bat shiat propaganda machine and launch himself into the breach no matter how much he looks like a total derp. All Hail the Donald!!!
2012-10-24 01:31:56 PM  

jonjr215: The only way that video could have been better is if, at the end, Trump put his pinky finger up to the side of his mouth, the camera quickly zoomed in, and he said in an Austin Powers voice "FIVE MILLLLLIOON DOLLARS" followed by an evil laugh. What a farktard.

Someone shop this...please...
2012-10-24 01:32:00 PM  

DamnYankees: Trump says he'll give $5M to kids with cancer if Obama capitulates. If this man wasn't a complete asshole wouldn't he give the donation regardless?

But if 0bama doesn't pony up, then HE is the one who is killing those kids. You hold their lives in your hands, 0bama!
