Slaxl: CPennypacker: bigbadideasinaction: Killer Cars: If his "October Surprise" was to say a bunch of things so stupid that my IQ dropped five points just listening to it, then congrats Donald; this is a resounding success.

If it drops below 70, then you might spontaneously become a Republican, so it's a worthwhile gambit, I say.

lordjupiter: "I'm the President. You're not. fark you."

/over


Now now, you're underestimating the President's god-like trolling abilities. If the President were to respond, he'd do it in such a way that he'll make Trump look like an ass...again.
 
2012-10-24 02:00:53 PM  
So Trump could be saving kids with cancer but is letting them die for political reasons?

Screw this guy! I don't suppose we can start a charity to raise $5 million, can we?

/I was already impressed, $5 million would astound me.

natas6.0: I'm no fan of the sitting president
but fer farks sake!
let's just focus on the stellar job he's done
and less on the derp

choose yer battles, Don


I agree. Like:

Taking out Osama Bin Laden
Taking the economy from the biggest collapse since the great depression to an economy that is adding job for the last few years.
Getting rid of Qadaffi without putting US troops in danger.
Ending the war in Iraq.
Getting rid of DADT
All while continuing to lower the deficit which was around 1.6 Trillion when he got into office. (FY 2009 budget presented by Bush)

Obama has hit it out of the park.
 
2012-10-24 02:01:26 PM  
My thinking:

1) The Hair was going to release some type of Obama divorce records, as reported.

2) Mitt, or some surrogate, told The Hair, in no uncertain terms, that it was an idiotic idea and it would actually end up helping Obama, not hurting him.

3) The Hair came up with Plan B - The Transcript offer at the last minute since he had to come up with *something.*

KarmicDisaster: Obama should troll Trump right back and say that he does not believe that Trump has 5 million dollars. Make Trump put it in an escrow account; Trump will balk because he does not intend to pay.


that would be pretty funny, wher bank cerifcate??! wheer!??!!
 
2012-10-24 02:01:40 PM  

eddiesocket: sodomizer: StewMcG: "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.

That's reasonable.

Obama is our least documented president in history.

No other president has ever released his school or passport records.


No other president was black either. Just sayin'.
 
2012-10-24 02:01:40 PM  
I'm going to just go ahead and call it that Donald's a secret Democrat and is doing this to push more moderates toward the left and ensure Obama gets re-elected.

Because the alternative is just to farking stupid to believe it's actually genuine.

CLOSE!

both are cynical partisan stunts that exploit charities.

Pretty good though, Headso
 
2012-10-24 02:02:01 PM  
keep talking Donald your helping the repub cause
 
2012-10-24 02:02:05 PM  
So, if Obama comes up with the info, and Trump pays out 5 Million, he will then turn around and write that donation off of his taxes and the people lose again.
Typical Republican.

Obama should come back with "You have a deal only if you are not going to write that amount off to be putting it on the the taxpayers shoulders".

You know maybe. I almost think Trump can't be so stupid this was his plan in the first place. But I could be wrong.

Also Trump would panic if they tried to set conditions for the release of the money from the escrow account. So many years of official transcripts, Passport application (If that is even available). Trump does not intend to pay and won't want to agree to any of it.

"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.

Trump's a total waste of oxygen. Also, does he even have $5 million?


His bankruptcy trustee may frown on these shenanigans

"Rosie's Theater Kids" and her "For All the Kids Foundation"

Corvus: Aldon: President Obama is too smart to take this seriously (wrestling with pigs and all that....). But it would be fun if he said

"OKay, I will release those records if Willard Romney and you release ALL the records I have released already (tax and birth certificates) and you then both release with me the same additional records you are asking for....plus you make it 50 million, c'mon it's for a good cause!"

He should say that. He should say he will do it if Romney does 10 years of his tax records.


Right, I should be no problem for Willard Romney to match the records already released by "least transparent President in history" that we "know nothing about".

Except in one the money is definitely going to charity, as much as can be found. In the other none goes to charity.
See how different they really are?

Yeah the whole "Some one saved their marriage therefore he is a bad person" is idiotic. But someone like Trump probably doesn't get that.

Good on ya for coming back to admit it was wrong.

The flaw with the whole "states who vote against candidate are dumb" argument is that the next election cycle if your candidate wins that state, then you've stated they're all morons and they voted for you.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have as much money as you do. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my transcripts go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will dronekill you.

halfof33: Does everyone else note the similarities between this stunt and the insipid "Give Joe the Bird" campaign?


I'm trying, but having an admittedly hard time.

Single source funding v. Crowdsourced funding
Demanding something v. Not demanding anything
Single attention whore v. I have no idea who's running it
Holding a donation hostage v. Donating regardless of outcome
Done out of being an asshat v. Done in good humor
Sad v. Funny

I must be missing something obvious here. Ooh ooh, is it that both have had threads on Fark? Hello? Is this thing on?

But Obama has shown 12 years of his tax records, Romney refuses to do that. So Romney can't even match the " least documented president in history"?

Wow Romney is the worst person ever!

2012-10-24 02:06:24 PM  
If I'm Obama, I answer with a video saying, "I'm sorry, but I couldn't find all of those records, because really, who the heck keeps track of things like their application to college from 30 years ago? But since I can't comply to Donald Trump's "satisfaction", I will go ahead and donate five million dollars of my own money to several different charities, anyway, since Donald Trump apparently doesn't want to donate to these charities without some sort of personal gain for himself."

Done. Bam.
 
2012-10-24 02:06:30 PM  

make me some tea: It seems apparent that no one gave a shiat about this Trump thing except the internet. My mom listens to talk radio all day, every day, and hadn't heard about it at all.


Because most aren't reporting about it.. Everyone finally said enough is enough
 
2012-10-24 02:06:54 PM  
Who does Trump think he is?

You can't do that kind of thing And if you do, and the person gives in, then it opens the door for more people to do the same.

If Obama gave in people would STILL deny that his transcripts are real. Releasing his birth certificate didn't do anything to stop people from thinking he wasn't born here. The president isn't a puppet you can just make do what you want.

If people are so upset about Obama not giving into this creep and charity not getting their money, then set up a donation fund to give a charity 5 million dollars or as much as you can get. How can people even think "OMG Obama is denying money to charity!" When Trump could give them the money anyway.

And why isn't he concerned about Romney's tax records? I don't remember any other president having to release college records or birth certificates, but tax records they have.
