I, for one, am not holding my breath. 0 will release his records 2 weeks after Hell freezes over. And then only if he can get independent verification.

LOL, Trump has nothing.

What a bunch of nonsense. No one is going to take this seriously.

At least Allred seems to have nothing either.

I’d like to hear others takes on this. I listened and thought, that’s it?

It worked before, but my gut says Barry isn’t going to respond and those that vote for him will care less why Barry isn’t going to release anything. Many of them have gamed the system also.

I wonder if this is some sort of set up and Trump finally actually has ‘something’ on President Empty Chair. Maybe the divorce records have a copy of the marriage certificate and that shows some birth info...?

I can’t believe this is all there is.

At least it’s not the divorce records thing.

Who knows? There might just be someone out there who has access to the records and would like a nice retirement fund - at the very least, Trump keeps the “Obama records issue” in the public mind heading into the election, something Big Leftist Media refuses to discuss at all.

But pResident Odumbo why won’t you release your records?

Think about what $5,000,000 would mean for (insert charity of choice here)...

pResident Odumbo, release your records. It’s for the children.

pResident Odumbo, we desperately need the money. Release your records.

” There might just be someone out there who has access to the records and would like a nice retirement fund - at the very least, Trump keeps the “Obama records issue” in the public mind heading into the election,”

1) Keeps Obama’s hidden past in the limelight

2) Trump can afford the 5 million, should he have to cough it up

No lose situation for Trump.

Maybe it’s impossible for Obama to accept the challenge because Trump has the original documents.

DUD ALERT!

Per foxnews:

Donald Trump just tweeted out his major announcement, demanding that President Obama release his college and passport applications. In return, Trump vowed to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice.

Thanks for nothing, Donald.

Total guess, but based on the ridiculousness of Trumps message — even for him, the Romney camp pulled him back and Trump had to do something at noon. I doubt this was his original intention, but whatever Trump had would likely have backfired. This won’t even go noticed except as a punchline.

One upside, but I wonder how fast the MSM whom elected “the One” rush to link “the Donald” and Romney.

The MSM has too much stake in this. They elected him, were part of the story in electing him, and they are protecting their misbehavior as “journalists”. They will never admit they didn’t do their jobs (we know what their job was, to elect the “first Black President”) vetting Barry. They were part of the campaign and like most narcissists, will never admit they were wrong and go down with the ship.

This is tantamount to Trump saying “Sorry guys. I was bluffing. I got nothing!”

$5 million dollars is NOTHING to either of these 2. Obama could donate $5 mil to charity himself and never miss it and not have to release his transcripts.

If Trump really wanted to put the pressure on Obama, he should have upped the ante to something like $100 million. That would have really put the pressure on him.

It is also possible that rather than interfere with the Benghazi email blow-up, he decided to temporarily shelve what he has and replace it with a smoke screen like this.

Trump should have made him an offer that he couldn’t refuse like $25 Million or $50 Million - at least $10 Million.
That what I would have done if I had Trump’s money.

$5 Million is chump change to 0bama in the long run.

Disappointed, but truly didn’t expect Trump to have much outside of needing to get his name out there for attention. Although, if this were another planet and the Pres. actually did accept this “challenge”, I hope Trump was specific in what type of charity - would hate to see it go overseas to a nefarious group that he really supports.

What the donald is doing is offering obama a another chance at a major distraction.

Suppose he DOES take ‘the donald’s’ offer and releases his passport and other records.

And suppose ‘the donald’ finds them accurate in the hour he will devote to scrutinize them before issuing the check.

And what if ‘the donald’ then put them on public display, what happens then?

And just suppose ‘errors’ are found in some of these documents, (and there would be) we would find ourselves faced with another major distraction just like the Birth certificate.

‘the donald’ did it before with the BC and this could be just another attempt to help obama.

Fluff and filler by the media, keeping us distracted from the other races down-ticket.

We need to throw out lefties all the way down to dogcatcher, like 2010 on steroids.
