President Obama Trumps Trump

You have to love President Obama for his willingness to roll with the punches.

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.
