Donald Trump's massively-hyped revelation is a total wash.
At 12.01pm Eastern Time, the casino mogul posted a YouTube video promising that if President Obama releases his passport records and college transcripts, "I will give to a charity of his choice...a check, immediately, for $5 million." Which if you're Donald Trump isn't even very much money. So, guys, BREAKING NEWS: Donald Trump Lowballs the President.
Trump has been touting his "October surprise" for days, promising us "something very, very big" and putting out rumors of a bombshell. Was the president a coke dealer in college? Did Michelle once file for divorce? The latter story came from a Trump surrogate who explained, "high above the Alps my gnome has heard..." Trump may have many talents (ahem), but expectations management clearly isn't among them.
