Does he already have the goods?
This a ploy to drag it out and harass Obama? If not, I never want to see his mug again. He said he had something. Now this bs. Seems too smart to completely destroy what's left of his credibility. I think he already has the records. C student Obama and far left course topics.
I don’t know what the point was, because nobody will be taking about this stupid publicity stunt by Friday morning.
My sources led me to believe he has them. Guess my source was wrong.
I was wondering the same thing. SURELY he has SOMEthing? I mean, really. Would he destroy his credibility THIS much? But, then again, I’m not a multimillionaire.
He went to both Occidental and Columbia as a Foreign Student. He traveled to Pakistan on an Indonesian Passport. That is why his OWN BOOK JACKET said he was born in Kenya. 0bama is the original Birther!
No one, except Donald Trump, knows what he is up to.
He may be simply playing a feint of some kind. He likes all publicity, good and bad, so maybe he has accepted the role of agitator to help Romney somehow.
Maybe his claims are somehow connected to Allred’s activities
Or, maybe Donald just wants to hog the election limelight with brash claims
Impossible to know.
I think there is something out there. I think trump probably didn’t find it but may have been the person to release it had Gloria allred started her crap. allred looked like an idiot so they put it back under wraps. Probably don’t need it to beat obama anyways but will use it if needed to overshadow any other october surprise if they need to.
Breitbart reporter said, “Barry Soetoro was an Indonesian citizen”
“I dont know what the point was, because nobody will be taking about this stupid publicity stunt by Friday morning.”
If he releases the records they’ll be talking about it on Nov. 1.
I think it could make two points.
This silly stunt can make Gloria Allred’s stunt look silly too. Just a couple of attention hounds with nothing important to say.
Nothing will happen from the offer but just a reminder that oh ya we having got these things from Obama. Makes Obama look hypocritical to demand Romney release info like tax returns.
Neither is he, he’s worth north of $7 billion. I doubt that he got there by being stupid.
Trump's got nothing that will have any effect whatsoever.
Good point, 2nd. ;-)
With democrats only the accusation counts..
They are to lazy and or stupid to check anything out..
With some Obama being an agent of the Communist Chinese Givernment would make no diffference.. NONE..
“AND THATS THE WAY IT IS”
“This silly stunt can make Gloria Allreds stunt look silly too.”
Trump might have something, but to anounce it on the same day as Gloria Allred’s stunt I think he is trying to checkmate her. We shall see.
Trump is in a holding pattern...his “offer” to Zero was a back-up plan, in the event that Gloria Allred and her “client” got that Massachusetts judge to unseal those divorce records and tried to use them against Romney. When that happens, Trump will conduct his own document dump, likely to include Zero’s college records (with claims that he was foreign born, for scholarship purposes), his passport records and the divorce papers that Moochelle served on him back in 2000.
The Dims are used to Republicans that don’t fight back. Just as we’ve learned about contact between Allred and Obama, there was likely back channel coordination between Trump and the Romney camp. Allred will play the divorce records card (tactic #1 in the Obama playbook) and Trump will go nuclear. It’s that simple. In fact, there has probably been some conversations between the two campaigns, with Romney’s managers warning Obama of the consequences if Allred goes through with her stunt.
I have no sources but I thought he’d have something. It’s very sad. He looks like a fool.
Let me clarify...what I meant to say was the offer Trump unveiled today was a back-up plan in the event the judge didn’t immediately unseal the divorce records. When she put off a decision until Thursday, Trump went into a hold pattern, waiting for Allred to get legal cover for her little stunt. When that happens, Trump will do his own document dump, and it may be quite a show.
If Barry puts out doctored forms like the birth certificate there won’t be time to refute. He will not reveal the real truth as it will incriminate him. He got into Occidental and Columbia as a foreign student and with equal opportunity status. He got into Yale the same way and with other special help....including financial.
There should be a law that all running for political office... and especially president.... should have all school and important records reviewed by a committee, if not the general public. I hope there is future legislation to prevent anyone else who is so dishonest and secretive about his background from reaching the highest office. It is a matter of national security.
Hatred of Trump has sure blinded a lot of Freepers.
I’m glad you posted the logical reason for Trump doing what he’s doing.
We’re lucky to have him on our side.
I agree. I think Romney wants to win without an October surprise, but I think he is prepared for it is Allred springs one herself. The fact that Trump has not dumped anything is a good sign so far. If Allred can't get the documents, then it is unlikely Trump will dump either, and this will all fade away.
This is what I suspect as well. We’ll see what happens, but it sure feels like there’s more going on than appears on the surface. Seems like Romney is just daring Allred to make his day. She acts like she’s got something big and bad on him and he acts like it’s no big deal. It’s a very interesting scenario. I think Trump is using whatever he’s got as insurance against whatever “October surprise” Obama’s people might spring.
Unless Trump has the genuine copies. If he’s got the genuine copies then he could be doing a Breitbart move, stringing Obama along to try to cover up this too, like he tried to cover up the BC, COLB, draft registration, passport stuff, newspaper announcements, etc. If Trump has genuine copies of any of that stuff - together with transcripts, etc - then he could be setting Obama up big-time.
Could be his way of saying, “Obama, you decide whether you’re going to go down with a fight, or without. Tell Allred to put down her gun and put her hands on her head, or you’re busted.”
I guess we’ll see.
The Trump Organization has been ousted as manager at a Trump Place building, sources told The Real Deal. The condominium board at 120 Riverside Boulevard has quietly replaced Trump with AKAM Living Services, sources said. But residents are not at all happy with the change, and may try and oust the board, said one broker familiar with the building.
The contract expired and the board decided not to renew without notifying anyone, the broker said. The switch to New York-based AKAM has left many residents very unhappy, according to another source.
Interesting. I wonder which came first - the expiration of Trump’s contract, or the promise to reveal something damaging to Obama...
I think you are all hitting around the answer. It was a counter to allred and wasn’t necessary. Though he may have been better off simply cancelling his announcement based on the judge’s ruling in boston. I think he has some documentation of some kind.
Allred has testimony in a 1988 case about Staples valuation. That’s nothing.
If he had the docs, he’d want them to come out the same day as whatever zobama’s surprise is.
The October 31 was telling. Why set a date specific if he’s not planning to moe forward in some other way?
Trump knows the Axelrod sleaze play will come in the last week. The Romney version of the Bush DWI. That’s when he dumps his docs. Both stories covered is a wash.
I think it’s poor grades and Marxist classes. If it were a disqualifying “trump card” he’d have already played it.
Can we just put Allred and Trump in a cage death match and be done with it?
He spent a ton of money. I think he’s got what he’s asking for. He will dump them and still do a charity donation.
I’ve said before that I think Obama doesn’t have complete transcripts. I think he has fudged his way through school and into the practice of law. He was forced to stop practicing law, so one thinks that there is something fishy about his records. Sealed tighter than a drum, and surely will reveal that he is a total fraud!
Romney’s campaign said they had no objection to unsealing the deposition. It was about Staples valuation. The ex-husband is still a friend and political supporter. Had it been adultery, no need for the sealed docs. Allred has nothing.
College or passport records are another matter if they contain other names, odd travel, foreign status, poor grades, odd classes, etc.
Perhaps Onama has another dirty trick this is stopping.
Close election. Puts Trump in a position to claim thr win for Republicsans if his bomb drops and Rommey wins.
Romney’s campaign could also want Libya to stay the main issue a few more days. They may have told Trump to delay. Trump knows Obama can’t accept this offer so it’s a push for now.
But Trump is becoming a laughingstock. If he produces nothing here, damages his brand.
At least the guy is talking about these Obama background issues. MSM marginalized and called anyone a kook who, say,mooimted out the autbio publisher info. Trump lender a voice and credibility to the transparency issue.
He really laced Greta out tonight, when she cast some doubt on his *plan.* I think he was genuinely pissed at her.
He may fall into the category of being a useful idiot for his efforts at *exposing* Hussein.
Like a defense attorney, all you have to do is plant doubt!
The only way I see this stunt working, is he has to have the transcripts. If a) Obummer dumps his forged transcripts onto the internet, then Trump can show the world the real transcripts and compare them to the forged ones. b) if obummer does not release the transcripts, then next week Trump dumps them on the internet.
I prefer scenario a), though the democraps will scream up and down how trumps are forged.
I was thinking it is Allred. If she had been successful he would have done something else.
Really? On his book jacket? I hadn’t heard that!
“He went to both Occidental and Columbia as a Foreign Student. He traveled to Pakistan on an Indonesian Passport. That is why his OWN BOOK JACKET said he was born in Kenya. 0bama is the original Birther!”
Really?! I hadn’t heard that. Which book?
Wasn’t actually a book jacket. Was promotional materials from his book agent. How’d his own agent get the facts wrong?
