President Obama's response:

The whole world now knows... my passport and college records were extorted, for ransom, three hoursago. This is a recent photograph of the man who did it. And this... well, this is what waits for the children with cancer. This is your ransom. Five million dollars in unmarked bills, just like you wanted. But this is as close as you'll ever get to it. You'll never see one dollar of this money, because no ransom will ever be paid for my records. Not one dime, not one penny. Instead, I'm offering this money as a reward on your head. Dead or alive, it doesn't matter. So congratulations, you've just become a two million dollar lottery ticket... except the odds are much, much better. Do you know anyone that wouldn't turn you in for five million dollars? I don't think you do. I doubt it. So wherever you go and whatever you do, this money will be tracking you down for all time. And to ensure that it does, to keep interest alive, I'm running a full-page ad in every major newspaper every Sunday... for as long as it takes. But... and this is your last chance... you rescind your ransom, I'll withdraw the bounty. With any luck you can simply disappear. Understand... you will never see this money. Not one dollar. So you still have a chance to do the right thing. If you don't, well, then, God be with you, because nobody else on this Earth will be.

Where do you work that you have ever been asked to provide your school transcripts? I have no idea what mine are, where they are, or if I even have a copy. I have a diploma, I guess I could find it wherever I stored it if I was really asked to provide it, but nobody has ever asked me for that, either.

After a certain point (usually after you have had your first job out of college) they stop asking about college, anyway, since what you have done professionally is more important. I haven't been asked about college in years, with the exception of when I got a job at a college. And even then, it was more curiosity than any real seeking of details.

[givinglifeonline.com image 500x357]

If I had even a remote possibility of getting this kid $5 million I'd do just about anything. I'd make a bet with farking Hitler. Hell, I'd suck Hitler's dick. I just don't see how you can make a reasonable argument for not obtaining the money short of having to kill someone for it. Not wanting to hand over papers certainly doesn't qualify for anyone but the heartless.


"Libtards" want this child - and every child like him - to be able to have health insurance without being barred for preexisting conditions, without his coverage being yanked for no reason by the insurance company, and for his treatments to be covered without annual caps on benefits. His family won't go bankrupt to pay for his care, which they would if he were uninsured. That's worth a lot more to families like mine than $5 million dollars in a political stunt.

Economy's getting better, jobs are increasing, international relations are stronger, better health care coverage. Of course, all of those could be much better, but Republicans decided that making Obama a one-term president was far more important than fixing America, so it was all extremely slow and rocky because of their constant filibustering, fighting, and biatching. Meanwhile the right tried to pass record numbers of anti-gay, anti-abortion, and anti-health care laws, never once tried to make their own budget, and keep demanding we declare war on Iran because Israel is pooping its diaper in fake terror.

SUMMARY FOR PEOPLE BLOCKED FROM YOUTUBE:

Basically, Donald Trump says he'll give $5mil to a charity of the President's choosing if he releases his college applications, records, and later in the video he adds passport records, to "his satisfaction."

He starts off by saying that he was privileged to be a part of the effort to get the President to release his long-form birth certificate. But, he notes, this President is the least transparent of them all and he needs to release his college records.

Commentary: In other words, "What I did before seemed to work so I'll try it again." For those of you wondering why he would want the college records, from what I've read before, some people seem to think there will be something worthy for birthers/teabaggers in Obama's college applications, such as what he might say about his background story (e.g. "I was born in Kenya...") or what he claims regarding race (whatever difference that makes). They seem to think that he would have said some damning stuff in those applications that he doesn't want people to see now.

I think that is the gist: he wants the President to release these records by 5pm on Oct 31 which will trigger an "immediate" sending of a check (or checks) to the charity (or charities) of the President's choice. Trump says this will satisfy him "totally" (I doubt it) as well as the American people. Also, he stressed the records must be "complete" and "to his satisfaction". In other words, there is a hole in his promise of a donation to charity big enough to drive a truck through.

"DOES NOT COMPUTE, DOES NOT COMPUTE"


What's stopping Trump from donating this money? If he was truly good and selfless he'd do it. But no, he wants to be a complete and insufferable shiathead yet again for attention and to draw attention away from being fired.

Let's say there was a homeless man who was very hungry, and you had more than enough food with you to share. But you see the mayor of your city nearby, and tell him that you'll give the homeless man something to eat if the mayor gives you his baby pictures. When the mayor rightfully refuses, you get angry at him for letting the homeless man go hungry, when all you have to do is give the homeless man some food.

That's the kind of retard logic you trolls and shills are pulling. "I can easily give them something, but it's HIS fault for not caving in to my demands! Now I'll let all those people suffer because of it! Nyah nyah nyah!". And those of us who are intelligent and not sociopaths are pointing out yours' and Trump's idiocy.

It's not far-fetched at all. Well, the rape thing, certainly. But you don't think there are rich liberals who would have paid $10 million to see George W. act like a monkey, hooting and scratching himself, on camera? Of course there are. And you think this would not have a bad effect on the office of the presidency? Treating it like rich people's make a request line? It's asinine.

Not wanting to hand over papers certainly doesn't qualify for anyone but the heartless.

Which is why TRUMP is the asshat for using cancer kids as bait. He's only perpetuating the idea that rich people have no problems using their money to get what they want. Trump has apparently discovered that he can't simply pay the college to release the records, so he's going to dangle a cancer kid in front of Obama and pretend like the ball is in his court.

He's a douche that needs to learn that having money doesn't mean you can make the rules.

And, in your estimation, teaching him that "lesson" is more important than the kids getting $5 million toward their cure?

It's Trump's money. Trump has stated that he WANTS to write the check, but it's more important for him to see some arbitrary application paperwork. So he's threatening to withhold it until he gets what he wants. Trump is the asshole no matter how the president responds.

Agreed. But depending upon how the president responds, he becomes just as big of an asshole.

You didn't answer my question...

At what amount would Obama become a dick for not just dropping out of the race?

If Trump offered $10M to charity if Obama just let Romney have the White House, and Obama said "no," would that make Obama an asshole? 25? 50?

No. That would be something substantial. A sheet of paper with some inconsequential type on it is pretty much the definition of meaningless.

Not a good analogy.


Right, and giving in to this douchebag would never encourage other douchebags from upping the ante...offering more for more...NEVER!!

Pretty sad you're trying to make Obama look like the bad guy instead of the insane, megalomaniacal douchebag trying to keep people from paying attention to yet another failure of his.

I suggest you pull down your pants, grab a bottle of Jergens and head over to Free Republic, where other patriots are undoubtedly lamenting over the poor soon-to-be dead children that Obama is going to kill.

Because he isn't a good person that wants to help people... he's withholding what help he could give people in an effort to obtain information that he and your friends on 'the right' will attempt to use to harm the President... even if there is nothing of consequence or nothing of importance in it.

I didn't "fall for" anything. I'm simply thinking of Obama sitting down with a kid at St. Jude Children's Hospital and explaining why they didn't get $5 million. I think that a pissing contest would be pretty hard to explain as a legitimate reason.

I suppose that the families of civilians murdered by Al Qaeda wonder why there weren't any negotiations, too.

You don't negotiate with the bully. Not on the playground, not with your significant other, not with people sawing innocent people's heads off, and not with this fop, either.

So giving Trump a meaningless piece of paper so that kids with cancer can get $5 million is the same as negotiating with Al Qaeda whose requests are generally to release other members of Al Qaeda from imprisonment or some other request nowhere near on par with faxing over a couple of meaningless sheets of paper....

Not sure if joking or just mildly retarded.


i think you are fully retarded. no mildly to it. what is wrong with you? you think that if obama handed those papers over, even if they were completely legit, that they wouldn't twist those into something to win romney the election.

Obama can't release the papers now because Trump has made the offer to pay $5 M for them. To do so now would open Obama to allegations that he is corrupt and able to be bribed. It makes him look weak on the world stage and a stooge to the rich, even over something as inconsequential as college papers. And, god forbid, Trump refuses to pay because his hand-picked "experts" say the papers are forgeries, then, not only is he corrupt, but also stupid to trust Trump in the first place. He makes himself a laughing stock for ever believing Trump was honest.

And what's next? The next millionaire offers to pay $7 million if Obama videotapes himself hoping on one foot and picking his nose for a full minute? He agrees to take a pie to the face on camera for 10 million? Hey, why not? It's just inconsequential fun at his expense "for the cancer kids." He makes it so that any millionaire with a budget and a grudge can turn the president into his own personal clown, because, if the little clown doesn't dance for the rich man, poor, innocent cancer kids suffer. And, of course, this will totally make the world fear and respect him an the office of the presidency.

But, hey, I got an idea, for everyone who thinks this is a good idea, I'll offer $10 million to Romney right now if he releases all the tax returns he gave to McCain. Oh, sure, I might not actually have $10 million, Mr. Romney, but can you take the chance of those little cancer kids losing $10 million over something so inconsequential as your tax records?

Trump has apparently discovered that he can't simply pay the college to release the records, so he's going to dangle a cancer kid in front of Obama and pretend like the ball is in his court.

He's a douche that needs to learn that having money doesn't mean you can make the rules.

And, in your estimation, teaching him that "lesson" is more important than the kids getting $5 million toward their cure?

It's Trump's money. Trump has stated that he WANTS to write the check, but it's more important for him to see some arbitrary application paperwork. So he's threatening to withhold it until he gets what he wants. Trump is the asshole no matter how the president responds.

Agreed. But depending upon how the president responds, he becomes just as big of an asshole.


You didn't answer my question...

At what amount would Obama become a dick for not just dropping out of the race?

If Trump offered $10M to charity if Obama just let Romney have the White House, and Obama said "no," would that make Obama an asshole? 25? 50?

Everyone except Trump and his birthers. How do you deal with someone who isn't satisfied by reality? Short answer is, you ignore them.

What does Obama have to lose? If there's only a one in a million chance that Trump would donate the money...why not at least try?


Sets a bad precedent. What's next? Ten million for pictures of his dong? Fifteen million for proof he didn't engage in anal bleaching? The president is supposed to represent our country.

He's the only president who's had this kind of treatment, and guess what, he's half-black and doesn't have a standard "American" name. I recall one other president (though his name escapes me) that was born in Central America, but since he was completely white and had a standard "American" name nobody cared.

Everything about these attacks on Obama's citizenry is tied to racism. He looks foreign, his name sounds foreign, he's not 100% white, even after releasing his BC they either ignore it or call it fake. And consider many Republicans are WASPs from the South.

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

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.

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.

Even though Trump is a thoroughly despicable excuse for a human being, I would LOVE to see Pres. Obama call his bluff and release the info. Then insist that the money be donated to Planned Parenthood, PFLAG, GLAAD, and HRC.

But it will never happen. Besides, as mentioned, does Trump even HAVE $5,000,000.00 in cash?

The sad thing is, the Obama haters will see a refusal as an admission of some sort of guilt, as something to hide. No president or candidate in history has been asked to reveal so much. Racism, pure and simple.

DamnYankees: President Obama's response:

The whole world now knows... my passport and college records were extorted, for ransom, three hoursago. This is a recent photograph of the man who did it. And this... well, this is what waits for the children with cancer. This is your ransom. Five million dollars in unmarked bills, just like you wanted. But this is as close as you'll ever get to it. You'll never see one dollar of this money, because no ransom will ever be paid for my records. Not one dime, not one penny. Instead, I'm offering this money as a reward on your head. Dead or alive, it doesn't matter. So congratulations, you've just become a two million dollar lottery ticket... except the odds are much, much better. Do you know anyone that wouldn't turn you in for five million dollars? I don't think you do. I doubt it. So wherever you go and whatever you do, this money will be tracking you down for all time. And to ensure that it does, to keep interest alive, I'm running a full-page ad in every major newspaper every Sunday... for as long as it takes. But... and this is your last chance... you rescind your ransom, I'll withdraw the bounty. With any luck you can simply disappear. Understand... you will never see this money. Not one dollar. So you still have a chance to do the right thing. If you don't, well, then, God be with you, because nobody else on this Earth will be.

I know no such thing. Donald Trumps best decision, and the one he appears to be continuing to make with this stunt, was marketing Donald Trump as some kind of worthwhile commodity. He's bad at real estate. Bad at campaigning. OK at reality TV. But quite good at crafting a personal mythology.

I'm not sure he's ever *thought* about anything outside of the calculus of how much attention it will get him and for how long he can ride it.

He's a farkwit. Is what I'm saying. He makes *BAD* choices, not good ones. And has enough money that he has been able to afford a LIFETIME of bad choices, any one of which would have driven a normal American into utter financial ruin.
