When you hear the name Donald Trump, you think pure entertainment, don’t you? No? Definitive annoyance? The squinty eyes and pursed lips just sear into the canvas of your mind, don’t they?
Last week, The Donald tweeted that he had a factual announcement to make about President Barack Obama. And now, a lot of people, including myself, are quite intrigued to hear what this announcement is.
I’m fairly confident that it’s a dupe. I wouldn’t be surprised if The Donald believes he has scored Barack Obama’s actual birth certificate, but something tells me that such an announcement wouldn’t offer enough for the TRUMP brand. According to the man himself, his announcement is “something very, very big concerning the President of The United States… It’s going to be very big. I know one thing–you will cover it in a very big fashion.”
He offered that quote to TMZ, if that tells you anything. But in all fairness, he has also stopped by Fox and Friends (of course) to state that this announcement will supposedly take place tomorrow, Wednesday, 10/24, around noonish. Eastern time? Central? Mountain? Pacific? When asked if President Obama would be disappointed to hear the announcement, Trump offered no comment–he said any reaction would be up to the President.
Let’s quickly break it down. Donald Trump didn’t mention President Obama in the mix. He carefully stated that his announcement was “concerning the President of The United States.” This could mean a number of things, including an endorsement or a statement that he’ll be voting for Gary Johnson instead of Mitt Romney.
