President Obama Trumps Trump
On The Tonight Show last night with Jay Leno, he responded with great humor to Donald Trump's phony offer of $5 million to charity, if the president delivers his school applications and transcripts, along with his passport applications and records. (A bluff since there's very little possibility Obama has the applications; who would after 25+ years?)
President Obama responded that the bad blood between the two: "dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya."
"We had constant run-ins on the soccer fields," Obama told Leno, obviously tongue-in-cheek. "He wasn't very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America, I thought it would be over."
No, it's not over. What's more, there are probably those among the Tonight Show audience who actually thought the president was being serious.
