Donald Trump's 'October Surprise' is a Ridiculous Charity Stunt
Donald Trump, a corporeal phenomenon of hot air, has once again proven his worth to society.
The 66-year-old business mogul has been hinting for several days now that he had “something big” that could potentially change the entire course of the upcoming U.S. election. Various sources speculated on the nature of the bombshell announcement – but I don’t think any believed Trump would stoop this low.
“I have a deal for the president, a deal that I don’t believe he can refuse, and I hope he doesn’t,” says a red-faced Trump in a just-released video. “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.”
There you have it. Trump is officially using charity cash as bait to get the President of the United States to do something nobody is asking him to. No seriously, Trump is actually stating that Obama following through on his request would “relieve the anger” of many Americans. Ugh.
When asked about the offer, Obama campaign senior adviser David Plouffe told reporters: “Direct questions to Boston because Donald Trump is Mitt Romney’s biggest supporter so he owns everything he says.”
Trump has given Obama until October 31st at 5 p.m. to respond. Something tells us he has 5 million other things to be concerned with.
