JinxofSpades: 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?


I consider myself a thoughtful and well-educated man. And my answer to your three questions are "I have no farking idea." So do what I do, just sit back and grab a handful of this:

EdNortonsTwin: It would be a shame if Obama didn't release the records because in his applications he profiles himself as a foreigner.


I'm Brazilian-American. I spent all my formative years living in a different country. If you think I didn't milk the shiat out of that in my applications, you're a fool; and if Obama didn't mention his Kenyan father, single mother, and experiences in Indonesia, he'd be a fool.

Larry Flint did it better first when he offered ONE MELLION DOLLARS for a copy of Romney's taxes.
 
2012-10-24 01:32:27 PM  

kronicfeld: If George Soros hasn't offered Romney $5m for his tax returns by close of business today, I'll be disappointed.


THIS!!!
 
2012-10-24 01:32:47 PM  

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: StewMcG: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: What's all this then? (YouTube's blocked at work)

"The Donald" has offered to donate $5 million to Obama's charity of choice if he'll release his college transcripts/records and his passport records. Seriously.

Hmmm... sounds vaguely like Romney's "$10,000 bet" line.

/Must be nice to have that much money.


What's nice is that he said it's 'a check he wants to write', but he's willing to deny himself that satisfaction in order to force the president to release documents that really aren't any of our business. Does this man's sacrifice know no bounds?!
 
2012-10-24 01:32:54 PM  
I hope Obama doesn't even grace him with a response. Like none whatsoever. Complete crickets, not even a "mmmkay." Deprive him of an audience and Trump's hollowness is nobody else's problem but his.
 
2012-10-24 01:32:54 PM  
Is there any wonder why this useless waste of a human being's gotten his businesses into bankruptcy on a couple of occasions?
 
2012-10-24 01:32:55 PM  
October Surprise? This is worse than the ending of "Contact".
 
2012-10-24 01:33:08 PM  
Looks like someone doesn't know what blackmail means.

Of course, it was greenlighted immediately, with a newsflash tag.
 
2012-10-24 01:33:09 PM  

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


There's no possible way that a black man named "Barack Obama" is actually American. It just isn't possible. His school transcripts and passport would prove this. Therefore, he would not be president anymore and America would be saved.

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


Only if it is a democrat. If a republican did something crazy in college (like wear a police uniform and stop people for the fun or protest FOR the Vietnam war) then it doesn't matter. Hell, it doesn't even matter if the republican did something stupid in the past year. However, everything a democrat did since birth is proof that he is not right for America.

JinxofSpades: 3. Why am I supposed to care what Donald Trump has to say about anything?


Yes. He is "rich" and on TV. He speaks for America. Especially on matters concerning bankruptcy law.
 
2012-10-24 01:33:19 PM  
Wow, that came in well below the ridiculous failure that I thought it would be. What a complete attention whoring tool.
 
2012-10-24 01:33:22 PM  
So has an indiegogo been started yet?

We've gotten what, upwards of $30K in about a fortnight for very worthy causes.

Let's see what we can scrape together by say January 20?
 
2012-10-24 01:33:23 PM  
I was expecting something lame.

This is lamer than anything I was expecting.
 
2012-10-24 01:33:24 PM  
Coming up next on Fox News: "Obama blocks $5m donation to kids cancer charity"
 
2012-10-24 01:33:30 PM  
IMO, that amounts to a threat pf extortion against the President. I say Obama send the Secret Service to haul his toupee (and the person it controls) to jail.
 
2012-10-24 01:33:38 PM  
Why do people continue to give him any credibility?
 
2012-10-24 01:34:25 PM  

coeyagi: uncleacid: He's scheduled to be on Letterman Tomorrow night . That should be fun.

There goes my respect for Dave.

In best Sam Kinnison voice: STOP FEEDING THE F*CKING TROLLS!


With the he being Obama, not Trump. I would expect them to not even acknowledge to topic.
 
2012-10-24 01:34:52 PM  
 
2012-10-24 01:34:54 PM  
Dems should counter this by citing it as proof that the 1% has so much money and a sense of entitlement that they believe their money gives them power to abuse others.
 
2012-10-24 01:35:25 PM  

dualplains: What's nice is that he said it's 'a check he wants to write', but he's willing to deny himself that satisfaction in order to force the president to release documents that really aren't any of our business. Does this man's sacrifice know no bounds?!


Actually, I think that Trump will donate the $5 million even if Obama does nothing, in order to garner some support for the "job creators" class in the last 6 days of the election.
 
2012-10-24 01:36:29 PM  

frenchcheesemuseum: THE ADMINISTRATION DOES NOT NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS.


This implies that Trump invokes a state of terror. I'm not sure that is the case.
 
2012-10-24 01:36:48 PM  
All he has to do to collect five million for a charity of his choice is get his universities and colleges to immediately give his complete applications and records and also to release his passport information. When he does that to my satisfaction, the check will be delivered immediately. 

Sketchy deal. He had to make a big publicity play while the election is still news.

Correct answer from Obama is, "Here's my tax returns."
 
2012-10-24 01:36:48 PM  

skinbubble: "To my satisfaction"


This. Please note everyone that the farking weasel has left himself an out. He isn't going to give shiat to any charity regardless. I swear I would have to spit on that piece of shiat if I saw him on the street.
 
2012-10-24 01:36:49 PM  

Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: How much will Trump donate if Romney releases his tax returns?

If Donald Trump wants to donate to charity, Donald Trump can do so anytime.


Or what about Romney releasing his school records? Tea Baggers are so dumb, they don't even realize no candidates ever release their school records. Just as Romney only released a COLB and not a long form BC. Anyone who insisted that Obama needed to release his long form BC, but Romney does not, or who thinks Obama needs to release his school records when Romney has not, is a racist. Period. Full stop.
 
2012-10-24 01:36:57 PM  

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


No, Trump and the anti-Obama crowd would say that they were forgeries.

Notice what Trump says about the birth certificate that he takes credit for getting released:

"I am very honored to have gotten President Obama to release his long form birth certificate, or whatever it was that he released. This was something that neither John McCain nor Hillary Clinton were able to get him to do during their very long and bitter political campaigns despite the fact that they were strong in demanding its release (nobody knows why he would not do it)."

"See how awesome I am? But it was probably fake anyway."

He's a Barnumesque huckster with a ridiculously inflated ego.

Short, simple and to the point.. That about sums it up

Just send the applications and passport info to

So When is someone going ot shop Trump's head on Michael pailin in the leopard print suit?
 
2012-10-24 01:37:28 PM  
I think he needs a tune up. He should try here:

imageshack.us 

/real, and VERY near my hometown.
 
2012-10-24 01:37:34 PM  

rev. dave: Why do people continue to give him any credibility?


Because he's a real-life soap opera character, and people love their drama!
 
2012-10-24 01:37:43 PM  
The Vanderbilts, the Astors, and the Rockefellers donated millions to charitable causes because they considered it to be their civic and moral duty to do so. Donald Trump will make an empty promise to donate money to charity as part of a crass attention-whoring prank.
 
2012-10-24 01:37:50 PM  
Should Obama deploy Seal Team 6 to greenlight Trump? I mean, it *could* qualify as an act of terrorism...
 
2012-10-24 01:37:52 PM  
f*ck the college transcript nonsense....I wanna see Romney's tax returns!
 
2012-10-24 01:38:15 PM  

hippyneil: This implies that Trump invokes a state of terror. I'm not sure that is the case.


His toupee does.
 
2012-10-24 01:38:21 PM  
You dopes. It's not about Obama at all.

It's about Trump getting publicity. He knows Obama isn't budging on this stuff.

That stuff will never get out in public until long after Obama is out of office. If even then. It has probably already been tossed down the same black hole that Bush's military records were.
 
2012-10-24 01:38:28 PM  

AngryJailhouseFistfark: 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.


No.
If Obama does release everything Trump wants, then Trump will say his "experts", who are Top Men, say that the documents are fake, and the Derp Squad will believe it.
 
2012-10-24 01:38:59 PM  

skullkrusher: kvinesknows: "If all records are given to my satisfaction." nice caveat. which basically means that no matter what he turned over it would not be good enough.

I think this is a win-win for Trump either way.

If BO doesn't give in, Trump gains notoriety as the man who proved that BO is so afraid of his records being made public that he won't release them for charity.
If BO does give in, he is the man who gains notoriety for getting the President to release these records.

In Trump's mind, publicity is an end unto itself. Actually kinda well played on his part for that reason


I really thought you weren't this dumb. Damn.

And what about Romney's tax return data? if college transcripts are important, isn't it MORE important for us to see Romney's tax returns?
 
2012-10-24 01:39:30 PM  
The Twitter reactions to this are farking comedy GOLD. 

Cannot WAIT to see the Daily Report With Jon Colbert's take on Trump's latest installment of "Here's Why I'll Never Matter".
 
2012-10-24 01:40:05 PM  
What really worries me about this is what lengths Trump will have to go to, to bring attention to himself after January 20, 2017.

Solchie: What is the deal with people demanding his college transcripts? What mysteries to they think they hide? College transcripts are not the holy grail, and aren't going to reveal anything Earth-shattering. "OMG.. he only got a C in the 3D art class he took his sopohomore year! Get the pitchforks!"

I can only assume that Trump believes he has found a way to make money by publically being an asshole (well, a larger asshole that usual).


Extension of birtherism. "We don't know where he was born but we know he was not born in the US because we desperately wish it were true and because he's got a foreign look about him. There must be something out there that will prove it. Birth certificate? Ok, long form birth certificate. Ok how about college records then. Etc." So no, they will never be satisfied. There's just gotta be something out there that satisfies their prejudices.
 
2012-10-24 01:40:50 PM  
He seemed awful vague on what he really wants. Even if Obama did this, which he won't, Trump will just come back and see they didn't include every paper he ever wrote and notorized copies of every exam he ever took or some bullshiat.
 
2012-10-24 01:41:30 PM  
One of Obama's billionare donors should make the same offer for Romney's tax returns
 
2012-10-24 01:41:31 PM  
A Wonderful birthday present for me. The Donald is promising to donate $5M, which, of course, his accountant will deduct from the taxes he pays (if any), and The American People are stuck with the bill. Thanks, Donald! The middle class doesn't pay for enuf of your shiat as it is.

/Hell of a present
//They need to take TV cameras away from this guy
///Ohhh! is that why it's on YouTube? Nevermind...
 
2012-10-24 01:41:49 PM  
This is absolutely ridiculous. Anybody who thinks that the president should in any way comply with the demands or this egregious asshole needs to have their head examined. These are the types of ill conceived publicity stunts that not only deserve, but demand to be ignored.
 
2012-10-24 01:41:51 PM  
I think it's a shrewd move by Trump to renew interest in getting Romney's tax returns released. He's a deep thinker.
 
2012-10-24 01:41:58 PM  
This guy really needs to DIAF. Talking down to Obama as if he was his pool boy! The f*cking nerve!

cameroncrazy1984: Obama should respond by getting a grassroots donation campaign going. Easiest response ever.


Better still, let's fire up the Fark to make donations of our own. Send a message to the Talking Toupee to go fugg himself and his demands to make the President of the United States kowtow to him.

Weaver95: f*ck the college transcript nonsense....I wanna see Romney's tax returns!


While we're asking for sh:t we aren't going to get. I want to know how many grandmother's Romney has, and what he calls them. Are they all Grandma X. Or is it, Grammy, Gramma, Grandma, Granny, Meme, Grams.... etc.

Thank you for explaining that for me. The scales have fallen from my eyes.
America's choice is clear.
When Romney is elected, he should consider Trump for head of Homeland Security. I don't believe that anyone else can keep us as safe as the Donald.

Obama admits it was just a tan all along?
