Donald Trump’s ‘Bombshell’ A $5 Million Offer For Obama’s Records

Donald Trump's 'Bombshell' A $5 Million Offer For Obama's RecordsDonald Trump, the impossibly coiffed real estate mogul, reality TV star and de facto leader of the “birther” movement, made his “big announcement” about President Barack Obama on Wednesday, saying he would give $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice in exchange for the release of the commander in chief’s college records and passport application.

‘Least transparent president’

“Barack Obama is the least transparent president in the history of this country,” Trump said in a video shot from his New York office and uploaded to YouTube. “I’m very honored to have gotten him to release his long-form birth certificate or whatever it may be.”

“I have a deal for the president,” Trump continued. “If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and if he gives his passport applications and records I will give to a charity of his choice—inner-city children in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research, anything he wants—a check immediately for $5 million.”


‘Honey Boo Boo of rich people’

The professional carnival barker also issued an accompanying press release on his Facebook page. The announcement was immediately mocked on Twitter.

“BREAKING: Donald Trump demands to know what medical school Dr. Dre went to,” Twitter user @BScalabrine24 wrote.

“BREAKING: Donald Trump replaces bed bugs as Americas #1 Pest,” Lizz Winstead wrote on Twitter.

“Donald Trump is the Honey Boo Boo of rich people,” @MorgonFreeman said.

In an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Monday, Trump said, “I have something very, very big concerning the president of the United States. I will be announcing it sometime probably Wednesday and it’s going to be very big.”

“Will it change the election?” co-host Gretchen Carlson asked Trump. “Possibly,” Trump replied. “It’s very big—bigger than anybody would know.”

So, do you think Donald Trump’s “very big announcement” about Obama really has the potential to change the election? Or is it just a complete waste of time?

Sitting Too Much May Decrease Longevity

New research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows that people who spend a lot of time sitting may be up to 40% more likely to die from any cause, compared to people who don’t sit as long.

Compared to people who spent less than four hours per day sitting, the odds of dying were:

  • 15% higher for people who sat for at least eight hours
  • 40% higher for people who sat for 11 or more hours a day

“Our findings add to the mounting evidence that public health programs should focus not just on increasing population physical activity levels, but also on reducing sitting time,” the researchers write.

Alpa V. Patel, PhD, has published studies on the health risks associated with too much sitting. She is an epidemiologist at the American Cancer Society in Atlanta. “We are continuing to demonstrate time and time again in different populations that there is something real to the association between sitting time and reduced longevity.”


What’s so bad about sitting for long periods? That’s not totally clear. But exercise and movement do have a positive effect on blood fats called triglycerides and other heart risks, and improves blood pressure, Patel says. Her advice: Sit for five fewer minutes per hour. “Small changes can have a big impact,” she says.

The new study doesn’t prove that sitting killed people. It’s not clear which came first — poorer health or spending more time in a chair. Still, there is no doubt that being active is healthy. “The key is to do something you like to do, whether it’s sports, going to the gym, walking, or gardening. “If it is terribly unenjoyable, the likelihood of sustaining it is pretty low.”
