TRUMP SCAMS PRESS IN DUD BOMBSHELL – I’ll Give $5M To Charity IF Obama…

October 24, 2012

Donald Trump’s Big news was a big let down for most of us in the press. We thought, and he led us to believe, he had something bombastic on Obama, but, in reality, he had no news except to promote himself with a $5 million dud of an offer to the President…

Others vented on Twitter,

“If at any point you seriously considered Donald Trump for president, please study the error of your ways in quiet, private contemplation,” wrote Jim Geraghty of National Review.

Zach Beauchamp of Think Progress offered that he was “Amused that Donald Trump is essentially doing a “philantrophic” version of the Joker’s moral experiments in The Dark Knight.”

“I will release my college transcripts and passport applications to Donald Trump in exchange for a $5 million contribution to Commentary,” tweeted John Podhoretz, the editor of that conservative magazine and a conservative columnist.

Joseph Weisenthal of Business Insider deadpanned that “Today’s Gallup poll will be completely useless, since it will have been entirely conducted before the Trump offer.”

David Frum chimed in, “Trump’s genius plan. Trap Obama into releasing his transcripts. Then blast him as an “elitist” when he is shown to have earned straight As.”

“The Onion” was prepared for Trump’s statement, linking to a satirical Trump announcement of its own after his broke.

“In a blockbuster announcement today, Donald Trump announced that he is a very sad man who has nothing to live for other than drawing attention to himself,” the piece read. “‘I’m a sad, pathetic human being and a complete waste of life,’ said Trump, adding that he lives an empty existence, and that he is nothing more than a corporate shill, as well as a failed husband, father, and human being.”

The Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty likened the attention Trump received to a clip from “Seinfeld,” while Chris Cillizza, also of the Post, was more straightforward.

“Me to Donald Trump: Go away. Please,” he tweeted.

Another interpretation, from Josh Greenman of the New York Daily News: “BREAKING: Donald Trump gives self an excuse to give less money to charity.”

Actor Kal Penn, who worked for a short time at the White House, had a counter-offer.

“Trump’s video was cray. But seriously, I’ll donate $50 to the charity of Gov Romney’s choice if he releases all his tax returns (Crickets),” he tweeted.
