‘The Donald’ threatens to drop ‘gigantic’ bombshell on Obama Wednesday

posted at 2:56 pm on October 22, 2012 by

Demonstrating that two (morons) can play at the same game, Donald Trump took a page out of Gloria Allred’s book on Monday, announcing on FOX & Friends that he will release a bombshell on Wednesday that will sink President Obama’s already-listing battleship. Atypically for Trump, instead of calling his revelation huge (pronounced “yooj”), he instead said his news is “gigantic.”

“It’s going to be very big,” the Daily Mail quotes the billionaire and former GOP candidate as saying. “I know one thing: You will cover it in a very big fashion.”

Like Allred, Trump isn’t dropping any hints, adding only that his leak could “possibly” play a role in the election (which frankly doesn’t sound that yooj after all).

Trump has been one of Obama’s most vociferous critics, insisting to this day that the president’s Hawaiian birth certificate is fake. He has also professed at times to “know” the contents of Obama’s college transcripts and has wondered aloud how Obama gained acceptance to Harvard Law School with the “bad marks” he earned at Columbia.

The Daily Mail notes that this is the second time in as many months that Trump has said that he has a big surprise that would be damaging to the president.

Trump’s announcement comes a day after Allred, a high-visibility attorney, claimed she would be dropping a bombshell of her own on the Romney campaign. Since her announcement on Sunday, a website labeled simply The October Surprise and featuring a countdown clock has appeared. The clock will zero out at 5;30 p.m. on Monday, at which time supposedly the “stuff hit the fan.”

The creators of the site have concealed their identity, writing only in a Twitter bio: “One of your presidential candidates isn’t being honest with you. Stay tuned to find out which one it is.” As Matt Vespa wrote earlier, the information to be released is “from a ‘rock solid source’ that has ‘irrefutable’ proof,” so take the news for what it’s worth.

Mr. Trump, if it has anything to do with 0bama’s birth certificate, please just keep it under your hairpiece.

Howard says: “Trump has been one of Obama’s most vociferous critics, insisting to this day that the president’s Hawaiian birth certificate is fake.”

I say: anyone who believes that the BC 0-bow-mao released, due to Trump’s pressure, is real is about as gullible as the people who fell for GWB’s supposed National Guard documents, famously reported on by Dan Rather.

Trump has been one of Obama’s most vociferous critics, insisting to this day that the president’s Hawaiian birth certificate is fake.

The birth certificate image Obama release has been demonstrated to be a fake. The signatures were added to the document, if the signatures are fake it invalidates the whole document.

Breaking: Obama is a Marxist.

Also to be revealed, Donald Trump is a self-promoting blowhard.

More talk from the invisible friends in Harry Reid’s head?

I wouldn’t mind that being literal…we’d be rid of the both of them.

Maybe, but often what liberals take to be “rock solid” and “irrefutable” in their fantasy world, tends to be “iffy” and “stupid” in actual reality.

Just another Rick Roll. Heh.

DeathtotheSwiss on October 22, 2012 at 6:35 PM

my guess is that Obama had a 3 way with Allred and Moochelle…but Allred will claim that Ivana was filming it and it will all go away.

just a guess…

teejk on October 22, 2012 at 7:03 PM

Wait I know what it is. Mitt Romney is a Mormon!!!!

DeathtotheSwiss on October 22, 2012 at 7:08 PM

Yeah, Trump is a moron, but he is our moron. Show a little respect, Howard.

No, less than that.
