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?

Chris Matthews: Romney Challenging Obama Is Unconstitutional

Chris Matthews Romney Challenging Obama Is UnconstitutionalThis week, MSNBC “star” Chris Matthews made the following statement, clearly speaking out of frustration as he watched President Obama wilt under the scrutiny of the second presidential debates where he was challenged repeatedly by Republican Mitt Romney: “I don’t think he understands the Constitution of the United States…He’s the president of the United States. You don’t say, ‘you’ll get your chance.’”

‘Above the people’

Chris Matthews was angry with Romney challenging the president on his record during the course of an election to unseat him. You would think Matthews would know what is in the Constitution and what is not. Nowhere in the Constitution does it set forth that a president of the United States is above the people and cannot and should not be challenged. Is that not what a presidential election is all about – challenging an incumbent president on his record?

‘Preserve, protect and defend the Constitution’

The Founding Fathers specifically limited the powers of the president and did not exempt a president from abiding by the laws of the land in the same manner and to the same extent as the average citizen. The president of the United States in the Oath of Office swears to the following:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

I have news for Matthews: there is no greater responsibility a president has than to preserve, protect and defend the Constitutional protection of a citizens’ freedom of speech — presidents are neither immune from it nor protected from it.

How about you — what is your opinion about Mitt Romney challenging President Barack Obama? To which candidate are you casting your vote for?
