Okay. First it was about the birth certificate.
Now Donald Trump has made another announcement regarding President Obama.
He claims that the President has not been transparent or forthcoming with any of his personal information.
I guess Trump didn't read any of his books:
The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming The American Dream, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama's Plan to Renew America's Promise, President Barack Obama: Change Has Come To America . His Words - His Promises, and more.
When you've shared your life with others through books, countless television and media appearances, including being scrutinized for every little thing while trying to be a supportive husband and father, I guess that portrays a lack of transparency.
What is Trump trying to find?
When Trump first shared his theories surrounding the President's citizenship in 2011, made popular by the birther movement, I was taken aback.
No, scratch that. I was offended.
People have made so many stupid allegations against President Obama, that it's pitiful.

It seemed like this whole drama revolved around garnering attention.
Now Donald Trump has popped up again.
And he has made an offer of $5 million.
“I have a deal for the president,” Trump said. “If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications, and passport application and records, I will give to a charity of his choice, a check immediately for $5 million.”

The deadline is October 31, 2012.
Seriously. Why is Trump trying to make a deal. This isn't a tv show.
People who flaunt money always do something like this, as if everything can be solved with money, and everyone can be bought.
This is utterly ridiculous. The only make-believe "dirt" that he can produce first revolved around his claim of an "inexistent birth certificate."
On April 27, 2011 the President voluntarily released the long form of his birth certificate.
Trump now wants proof of Obama's college and passport records in his quest to get the President to be "transparent".
He is clearly desperate, making himself appear like a completely ignorant a**hole.
I guess making all of that money has eroded his common sense.
If it's not about attention, then this issue illustrates an underlying motive that's even worse.
Bringing up something so trivial makes him look foolish.
I would have laughed if this wasn't so outrageous.
